    See here:

    BBTS Pre-orders, Generations, RID Voyagers

    Looks like BBTS has the new wave 3 Generations FoC figures up for pre-order, along with the next wave of PRiD voyagers.

    I'm in for Starscream, Sideswipe and Ultra Magnus, myself. I can wait retail for the voyagers :D

    Ordered set of 3 voyagers (perfect!) and set of 5 deluxes.

    Thank goodness I already have Dreadwing in my POL.

    Ditto!

    Comes out to be $16.99 for each of the Deluxes, which is about what I pay after tax / gas anyways hunting for these (and the pegs are so clogged with FOC already I doubt I'd see them), while the Voyagers come to about $28 per which is fine as it was a hassle getting Dreadwing locally and I'd rather avoid it altogether. Not to mention these will hit during the holiday shopping season meaning it will be even harder to find TFs as parents buy gifts for kids.

    If Skyquake is coming in November already, that means the window to get Dreadwing is really tiny so good luck to anyone who still needs one, looks like you got about another two months to find one.

    Thanks for this update. Order, both Magnus, Screamer and Sideswipe. Bummed I missed out on Dreadwing.

    I think that FOC Optimus mold worked way better for Ultra Magnus anyway.

    Also, BBTS seems to have a huge stock of these available --

    781 available for the Voyager set of three

    576 for the Generations for the Deluxe set of five

    Seems like a lot more quantity than they usually get, but maybe I'm wrong.

    Because they're not filled with repacks from previous waves (except Optimus... again). I'm surprised they're even bothering with that case with Starscream and Prime and no Skyquake.

    Still no pre-orders for Generations/FOC Voyagers Grimlock and Soundwave, or did I miss them?

    Nabbed Skyquake. No FOC figures for me. I'm already getting to much stuff as is.

    Ordered the set of 3 Voyagers; I was waiting for BBTS to offer Ultra Magnus, Skyquake, and Thundertron all in one shot. No having to hunt them down at retail or play scalper games with these guys. XD The FoC stuff is a fairly big meh; I wasn't too impressed with FoC Shockwave, though Starscream may interest me since he's always a fave character along with Kickback (wish he was offered for sale separately though).

    Wow. Yeah. November is huge...

    Hrm... I wonder when Artfire is going to come in... As soon as AM Ironhide drops I'm shipping my loot. Then I get a reprieve for October and start all over in November.

    This is the better deal though.
    Robots In Disguise Voyager Series 04 Revision 01 - Case of 4 - Transformers Prime Robots In Disguise Voyager (Powerizers)
    Granted you get OP but if you do the math it comes out to be cheaper for an extra figure. Def. cheaper than Robot Kingdoms prices too.

    Pre-orderd Skyquake. I happened to score a Voyager Dreadwing at the nearest WM this morning then get home and BBTS has Skyquake for a few bucks more, nice.

    With this wave hitting right before / during the holiday shopping period, it actually makes sense that they'd want to slightly refresh Optimus for the parents who are buying Christmas presents. Optimus Prime is the most recognizable TF, even for non-fans, so it makes sense they'd want to make sure he's still on the shelf by Christmas as I could see a ton of parents buying one for their kids.

    Maybe but do I really want another Optimus. XD I already have Takara FE version and the Deluxe version (that came with the Entertainment pack). I'd rather have the $5, to be honest.

    pre-ordered Skyquake (that way if i never find Dreadwing i'll still get to experience the mold), Starscream and Magnus. Figured i can aim to find PRID Magnus and Thundertron at retail.

    Damn I feel like preordering Prime voyager Skyquake, Ultra Magnus and Thundertron. I think the FOC Generations can wait except for Starscream but even then I have to wait a while before BBTS gets the figures in stock. I'll wait a little 'till November when BBTS has the voyagers in stock.
