    So who exactly is going to be released and when? If they're not G1 related I really dont care.

    And whatever happened to that rumor back in April that we'd be getting a 6' Titanium Shockwave?

    I wonder if G1 Magnus will ever be on a TRU/Walmart/Target aisle.

    You've honestly got me with this one. The last wave I got was G1 Magnus and WW Megatron, WW Magnus and WW Sunstorm should be soon if they're not already out.

    After that, we've got:

    WW Prowl
    Grimlock (most likely War Within)
    Soundblaster w/ Ravage
    WW Skywarp
    Beast Machines Primal Prime

    Not sure when they are coming out, BBTS doesn't have preorders on them yet either. Only one out of those that's G1 is Soundblaster, he's from the Japanese shows though so no idea if that is what you'd want.

    Might hear some more Botcon time, if we do it'll be on the frontpage as soon as.

    Distribution on these is terrible from what I've heard, it's probably better to try online. No idea why these are so hard to find, they're great little robots.

    I think we're all still waiting for the Fallen/Cheetor wave in stores, much less Magnus. The way the line's distribution seems to have totally halted is disturbing.

    As far as upcoming releases go, the latest we've actually seen are War Within Prowl and SDCC exclusive Menasor. We have confirmation on WWI Grimlock and, I believe, WWI Skywarp (milking that mold for all its worth).

    Rumored upcoming figures include G1 Shockwave, Arcee, Soundblaster, WWI Brawl, Classics Cosmos, and one or two others that I forget.

    WW Sunstorn and Magnus hit online retail a while ago. I've had mine for... probably well over a month. Retail OTOH... heh. Newest I've seen there is Rodimus/Soundwave.

    6 foot tall Titaniums? Yes, that would be overkill. ;) 

    The Fallen/Cheetor wave showed up in stores around here but in very limited numbers. Within the last month or two, shipments of Titaniums seemed to have all but stopped at the local TRU and Walmart. I finally gave up and ordered the last few assortments online.

    Hell yeah. I'd kill for a G1 Magnus that's as tall as I am.

    I love that when people abbreviate War Within as "WWI", it makes it sound like we're getting a World War I Skywarp.

    Which would be sort of awesome, but not as great as a WWII Skywarp. :) 

    But WW Brawl? Why WW Brawl? Haven't we gotten enough tanks already? Or is it just going to be a repaint of GIJOE Megatron or something? :p 

    Around here, we're just getting the Rodimus, RID Prime, Starscream wave... I sure wish these things got around better. True, the first few figures were crap, but the line has gotten a lot better since then.

    Probably a Fallen repaint. Just a quick way to get more money out of the mold.

    Have we every really gotten confirmation that the TS Skywarp is going to be War Within? With Grimlock, we have (from Don). But I don't think we have for Skywarp. Granted, it's certainly the most likely case, but they might pull something out of left field.

    No confirmation, but almost a given that they'll reuse the same seeker mold. Something out of left field (the rumored 2nd seeker mold) would be nice and welcome, but .......

    I was about to give up on finding the rest of the 6Ti figures (need G1 Magnus etc), but when I saw the Prime/Megatron 2 pack announcement I figured there might be some hope of seeing them in stores again. I'm just curious whether the reason we don't see 6Ti's in the stores is because Hasbro isn't selling them, or if it's because the stores aren't buying them.
