    This would be good for all the folks who could never find one at retail, hell, I wouldn't mind if they made all the Alts available on line, I could really use a few of the older ones for kitbashes.

    Hopefully Swerve isn't that far behind. I already have one, but wouldn't mind a second one to put the flames on this time. I put the flames from the first one on my extra Tracks.

    I was surprised when I saw Decepticharge on HTS. I don't have him, so I may pick him up when he becomes available.

    Wonder how long it'll take Hasbro to get him in stock?

    Although I got him, it would be great for everyone who missed out on him the first go round. It would be even cooler if they could give him the barrel too.

    Hopefully they can do the same for Camshaft, and Ravage and Rumble, since many Wal-Marts never got them.

    My suspicion is that Hasbro might have dug up some old cases, and what we're seeing is just old red boxes. I know those last couple red box waves (Decepticharge, Swerve, Prowl take 1) did not see great distribution, so it will be nice to see them again.

    I would be nice if they started releasing all the Alternators that didn't make it to my stores. There are so many Alternators that I would like to get, but was never given the opportunity thanks in part to the horrible distribution and the scalper problem. Common HTS, I need my Wheeljack, Shockblast, Prowl, and so many others!

    CamShaft is the only one I am missing. I never saw him in stores and he seemed always Sold Out on the web site when I checked. Guess I will keep my fingers crossed...

    Hmmm...interesting. Kind of random and out of left field to re-release him now though.

    Oh no, that'll ruin his collectability.

    They should re-release more of them. I missed out on some, when I didn't have money at the time. :(

    On one hand, I'm glad they're (apparently) re-releasing him/digging out old stock (whatever the case may be) since the one time I saw Decepticharge I bought Shockwave instead, thinking he would be harder to find. Boy, did that stack of Shockwaves at TRU a week or two later tick me off.

    On the other, I don't have any money.

    I actually dont want them rereleasing any others... a line needs rarities, Alternators had a lot but some like Camshaft and Swerve need to stay rare, if you could find them anywhere they'd be just like Rollbar and Ricochet, nobody would care about them.

    No, people deserve a chance to buy stuff they might want.
