Toy News: "Titans Return" Cloudraker and Wingspan listed on Walgreens.com

After months of anticipation, the two pack featuring the Autobot and Decepticon "Clones" Cloudraker and Wingspan has finally been listed on the Walgreens web site! However, the item is listed as "Not sold online" and includes a search engine for you to look for a store near you to purchase one. However, I strongly advise that you call any store listed to check on the stock before charging out and possibly facing disappointment.
