    I pre-ordered mine the day the listed him at around 11.99, and received him two days later. Since then, I've shipped it and received it. Price is now higher and pre-orders are closed.

    This really looks like Hasbro/Takara needs to start increasing production of the B2k8 ( as long as it doesn't affect Quality of course) this will be the V. Class Classic Jetfire scenario all over again if they don't

    IMPO it looks like they were still working on the designs of both Bumblebee's when the release the 74 stickered windows

    Anyway heres hoping i can get at least one here as even my little brother wants a 08 Bumblebee rather than the 74.

    im sure as long as ppl keep buying all the other TFS they will keep sending him out but still in limited quantities. i think as long as the shelves are full of movie deluxes regardless if theyre all the same, most stores wont order anymore and get BBs in

    Except for the fact that most stores (at least every store I have been to) have absolutely no deluxes on the shelves.

    Been that way for a week and a half -_-

    Yet they have tons of FAB/Cyberslamers.
    So far the only deluxe I've seen is Brawl,and that's only because the Starwars TFs had sold out.The rest of the shelf space was used for more FABS.

    Yeah, the FABs and especially the CyberSlammers just don't seem to be selling well at all. I know Hasbro told us they wanted to broaden the age range with the movie merchandise, but it doesn't seem to be working. Makes me wonder if they'll stick with the FABs and CyberSlammers (or equivalents) for the sequel.

    The kids just seem to love the Deluxes and Voyagers. I've seen 'em going crazy over them at TRU. Funny story, in fact.

    When TRU had that whole "Spend $25 on TFs and get a free Real Gear robot" deal, there was a kid and his father who didn't understand what a "Real Gear robot" was. I was about to intervene when this happened...

    Dad: "What's a 'Real Gear Robot' though?"
    Kid: (picks up Ironhide) "I think this is..."
    Dad: "How do you know?"
    Kid: "Well, he's not butt-naked or anything..."

    I had to leave the TF display to mask my laughter. :lol

    Deluxe wave three figures are starting to trickle out. Just be patient. Both Wal-Marts near me have had a couple of sets in (evidence by the five or so Dreadwings I've found) and my Target (and two others nearby) have also recieved a few boxes... heck, got a box of wave three's in the backroom right now at my store.

    Basically, they're coming so just be patient. Of course, distribution is still screwy, but this has more to do with individual store ordering than Hasbro not sending merchandise to distribution centers.

    Yeh atleast those Real Gear bots can make cools pieces for display.

    But why stick the little kids toys with the grownup stuff.
