    Thanks for delivering once again, Nevermore! That Megatron really looks impressive! Hasbro should not have released the earlier Megatron if they were eventually going to release this bad boy (WWI Megatron).

    I agree with you that he's cool-looking but I always felt that it was a reason to release him for the following reasons:

    i) completely new design that has no "history";
    ii) QC for him wasn't good - lose joints etc.

    The worst thing is this version of Megatron seems to be warming the shelves in alot of places...even in my country. And shelf-warming products lose favour in the eyes in the retailers' eyes, who in turn re-order less of a product less. Less re-orders mean that the line will lose "support" from Hasbro...

    If Hasbro wanted to release him, they should have at least let the line "stablise" with familiar characters - something which they are doing now.

    Probably not until at least wave 7 for WW Megs or G1 UM. Based upon this info, wave 5 is likely RiD OP & Starscream, and wave 6 is likely BM Cheetor and The Fallen. (We know with considerable certainty that wave 4 is Rodimus Prime and Soundwave.)

    Plus, the toys for Megs and G1 UM shown at BotCon were indicated to be painted resin hardcopies by the guys at the Hasbro booth. So, production is still in the early stages.

    We've also got the OTHER Ultra Magnus (WW OP repaint) and Sunstorm (TC repaint) to fit in somewhere. They would probably (a) want to split up the repaints, and (b) prefer to release the repaint UM before the new mold UM. If I were a betting man, I'd lay a bit of money on:

    Wave 7: WW Ultra Magnus, WW Megatron
    Wave 8: WW Sunstorm, G1 Ultra Magnus
    Wave 9: WW Grimlock, ???

    I don't remember where I got my intel but I have WW Magnus in wave 7 and G1 Magnus in wave 8, just as you have above. Wave 7, per Bot-Con, should be available in May 07.

    Should be soon. Optimal Optimus is already out there & he does'nt seem like the ideal figure to do a big release delay afterwards for the next 6" Titanium.
    Figured Hasbro would try to hit us as hard as possible in the wallet sack before the movie. :lol
