    The description seems to suggest the DVD will contain "scenes from the show". It can likely be interpreted several ways, but I get the sense that the DVD will not contain full episodes but rather just have segments of a few episodes.

    Didn't we see the back of the two pack a while ago? I seem to recall it saying the dvd would have the first episode, which I took to mean Transform and roll out pt1.
    I'd have thought somebody here would have the two pack by now.

    well that seems sensible enough, kids watching the show are probably going to be wanting bulkhead over cybertron megs.

    BBTS had all the case assortments listed when their preorders went up, to be fair.

    I'm definitely satisfied with the Deluxe breakdown. No bias to a particular figure yet, no rare chase item, just clean and simple and even distribution. Harder to do that with three Voyagers, but since we already know about a better Megatron coming and the other two can actually do stuff in the show, it'll suffice.

    I'm happy to see that they are at least trying to not make it next to impossible for everyone to get thier hands on at least one toy. That males me very happy cause now I can actually get the ones I want!!!! I still hate scalpers though.

    ...sounds like the same concept as the DVD from the Classics Ops/Megs 2-pack, just some narration and a few clips from the cartoons. Strange how they seem to be going the same route as the Classics pack (2 blah figures, worthless DVD), given that the previous path made a beeline for the clearance shelf.

    Yeah the previous Classics two pack was sort of useless. Neither figure was that great then. THat being said I like the dlx version of earth mode prime. It is different enough. But for megs it is just a smaller version of this voyager sized toy which is a bit of a waste.

    But I guess for a kid who cannot possible afford or have their parents buy others, this box set should keep a kid happy for a while.

    Oh man, voyager Ops is wave 2? I sure hope they don't wait for 2 months between waves.

    ...and let the Bulkhead shelfwarming commence!...

    ...wow do they ever make useless 'DVD feature' two-packs...

    ...looks like Lockdown, Prowl and Megs is all I need out of wave 1. Better not be multiple months wait for wave 2+!!!

    Are you kidding? Bulkhead might be a "shelfwarmer" to adults, but I bet, when kids go into the store, they're going to beg for two figures: Bulkhead and Bumblebee. Maybe I'm wrong on that, but don't be surprised if Bulkhead sells faster than you expect.

    Yeah, I expect Bulkhead to do very well, he's an appealing character and a fun looking toy.
    I know if I was a kid I'd want the big guy who breaks stuff all the time.

    I was referring to the fact that he's x2 to the other voyager x1s in the first wave. I think kids will want him but not like BB and Prime, and parents won't like the small looking figure in a bigger box that costs them double than BB and Prime and looks a similar size (classics Prime was a shelf-warmer even though he rocked for these reasons).

    Well, the classics dvd 2-pack was two 'deluxes' and a dvd and a heck of a lot wasn't cool about that. The dvd, which was useless, allowed them to charge full retail for x2 deluxes when you were getting two substandard figs and paying the extra $ for the stupid dvd.

    For this one I wasn't referring to the whole package, but the DVD element of it. To me including a DVD that has just one episode in it (which this pack might not even have) is very useless...the episodes, if copied from a tv source, can be downloaded non-illegally, and kids can just go watch it on tv. I mean, what use or replay value does one episode that is really just 1/3 of a mini-movie anyways? Seems like a waste of materials to me. I'd say either include something that's not useless on these dvds or cut them out...but then it wouldn't look like a big box set with all the space they can take up with that dvd case in the box.

    Bulkhead's alt mode is way bigger than deluxe alt modes, and they won't know his bot mode is shorty before they paid it.

    It's really not that much bigger. I have him and BB here side by side and his is only marginally bigger.

    And there I wasn't talking from my perspective (I think Bulkhead rocks the party too, a great fig!), but from that of parents, where higher price for what seems like not much more (he looks pretty small in package, and bland compared to say SS when he is just a green rectangle) would be a detractor, just as voyager classics Prime.
