New Transformers finally out at retail - Animated Ultra Magnus (and Universe Stormcloud)

I have been waiting for this news for what seems like months. Transformers Animated Ultra Magnus has finally begun to hit stores shelves! He's been available for a few weeks on some online retailers, but I resisted the urge to order him because I was convinced his retail release was just around the corner. Well it took a couple weeks longer than expected, but he has finally arrived, with multiple sightings at California-based Target stores. As the third member of the Animated Leader class, Ultra Magnus costs $40 but looks to be worth every penny in my opinion. For a video review of Ultra Magnus, visit this link.

Universe Stormcloud has also been spotted, at a Walmart store and Target store in Colorado. He is a repaint of the recent Ultra class Powerglide figure and sells for an MSRP of $25.
