    Hello fellow TFW(ers?).
    I'm back once again with a bunch of questions!

    1. What is the June/Mass Release/Official Date of the toys? (Wave 1 = june?)
    2. What was/is the May release date? and was it just for Cininnatti(Spell check?) (because of BotCon) or was it Mass?
    3. At the moment, What is the KNOWN Official date for the toys?
    4. Does anyone have a Checklist of the toys (Including the new announced wave with Ultra Magnus and Sentinel)?

    1. The June mass release date is the 'official release date' (meaning it could show up at any point in June) but should be saturated by July. Also, this is only for wave 1 of the deluxes and voyagers and the Optimus Vs. Megatron two-pack. The first wave of Leaders won't be until August I believe.

    2. The May release date was just for Ohio and only for Botcon.

    3. The official date give by Hasbro (which is usually a saturation date... not an actual 'they will show up in stores exactly on' date) is June 26th.

    4. I have my own checklist, but it's not an extensive one... someone else could probably help you better there.

    So I should expect to see them in stores by like the 26-June to 1st July or whole July. Thanks for the help Laser Optimus!



    I still need help on the checklist.

    Here goes. I'll only cover the main line, I don't follow the Activators much.

    Deluxe, wave 1:

    Cybertron Mode Optimus Prime
    Bumblebee
    Prowl
    Lockdown

    Wave 2:

    Ratchet
    Blackarachnia

    Wave 3:

    Autobot Jazz
    Snarl
    Soundwave
    Oil Slick

    Wave 4:

    Elite Guard Bumblebee
    Sentinel Prime
    Swoop

    Other Deluxes, planned for release, no known wave yet:

    Prowl Sidecar Samurai Armor
    Lockdown redeco w/ Chainsaw
    Blurr

    Voyagers:

    Wave 1

    Bulkhead
    Cybertron Mode Megatron
    Starscream

    Wave 1 reset? / Wave 2:

    Optimus Prime

    Wave 2:

    Grimlock
    Lugnut

    Wave 3:

    Blitzwing

    Unknown:

    Skywarp
    Wreck Gar
    Jetfire & Jetstorm (two toys, sold at Voyager Pricepoint)

    Leader:

    Wave 1

    Bulkhead
    Megatron

    Wave 2

    Ultra Magnus


    Unknown size classes:

    Swindle
    Arcee
    Mixmaster
    Scrapper

    I believe they are all planned as Deluxes

    Shockwave

    Unknown size class, more than likely a Voyager, though the numbers of Decepticon Voyagers already might not work in his favor.

    Complete unknowns:

    Thundercracker

    All we know on him is he'll be in the show. I'd imagine if he gets a toy, it will be either late in the line or a store exclusive, due to how much he looks like Starscream since Screamer is blue too.

    The first Wal-Mart computer list that revealed Blurr, Swindle, Wazpinator and Wreck-Gar as Voyager said the first three were Deluxe.

    Dang, I knew all this already from various threads, but reading through that list is like reading a best-ever Christmas list.

    As I said in another thread, I've abstained from pre-release crack for the purpose of having fun hunting in toy shops again.

    ...and Classiverse.

    Summer - Winter '08 is gonna rock my socks.

    Yeah me too.
    It saves money too.
    for animated, since people bought alot already and they release in Ohio aswell, Other stats won't have that much of a problem in buying/hunting them.
