    Christ, I really thought I'd have about another month before having to search for these guys. Sigh, I guess I'm going to three Walmarts tonight.

    damn hasbro slow down pls!!! it's almost like they feel sorry for us here in the u.s. because we were basically the last people to get animated and now they're letting the flood gates open completely to make up for it. i think all our wallets will be in for a hurtin'.

    These are just TOO big for me ... will stick to deluxe/voyager.

    Thanks for the update though!

    Yeah, you and me both. With this, wave 3 deluxes being sighted and the Crossovers (yeah, I want a few of those...) all being sighted I'm going to need to put aside some money quick. Still, they probably won't show up here in Florida for a couple of weeks... so that should give me some time to save. Hopefully, Universe doesn't show up anytime soon... at least not until it's scheduled August release.

    :useless 

    As the wallet grabs my keys
    and heads for deserted island
    without a toy store in sight,
    I sit and wonder what the ______
    is wrong with hasbro.
    6 Months of nothing, and then
    -------BOOOOOOOM-------
    You get the feeling they want our stimulus checks.
    At this rate Wv4 will be out by end of july.
    My wallet my never come home.

    We know that leaders have been released in Canada, but is it possible the one US sighting might be a mistake. I mean Bulkhead and Megatron are also Voyagers, so it could be that the person put the sighting in the wrong forum.

    As for the rapid release of figures. There isn't a whole lot of other announced figures (that we've actually seen images of) left. We know of Wave 4 deluxe, but don't know about wave 5. We know about wave 4 of Voyagers, but nothing of wave 5. It seems like wave 5 and 6 may be full of repaints (which wouldn't be a bad thing) I can't see these waves holding out through Christmas, which would mean we'd get a lot of new product come November or so. Just some ramblings.

    Not to pee in your Cheerios, but the Animated wave 3 Deluxes and Voyagers were listed for August by Hasbro, too.

    For Deluxe, wave 5 should consist of some combination of Swindle, Blurr, and Wasp -- possibly all three, but I'd bet at least one of those won't show up until wave 6. There's also Samurai Prowl to pop in somewhere, but he wasn't one of the ones that showed up in the Wal-Mart computers a while back, so I'm guessing he'll be after the other three.

    For Voyager, we know about Wreck-Gar and Skywarp -- both may be in wave 5. (Hmm, actually, I suppose it's possible one of 'em might be in wave 4 with Blitzy.)

    I won't go out searching just yet, but it's exciting to think I might be able to find these sweet babies soon
