    BBTS has the preorders for these expected in November but due to the case assortment they'll set you back $40 for the two and BBTS isn't separating them.

    Chances are any that show up on HTS will be snapped up right away due to the case assortment.

    And who knows when or if the mass retailers will get this wave in. Pretty sure TRU will the crappiest older wave instead (Cliffjumper, Dreadwing, Skullgrin, Kup).

    So what is everybody's plan?

    You didn't list my option, which was get lucky and preorder from the TFCC Club Store at retail prices. :D

    I voted "take a chance and wait for retail" but I need to ask, where is the chance? This is not the end of a line it is the beginning. These things are going to be easy to find and a good thing too cuz I need 5 junkheaps.

    No, I didn't. You can't swing a dead cat in Minneapolis without hitting seven Target stores. We're far more likely to find what we need there.

    But, you can get Wreck-Gar at Marshall's, Ross, TJMaxx for $7, and he'd probably be worth more than Junkion later due to limited availability.

    With as plentiful as the Wheeljack/ Warpath wave is around here, I don't think I'll have any problems finding the next two at retail.

    Not a bad plan, tbh. I know a buddy of mine will likely order a case; I should suggest this to him.

    I have a bbts preorder and with pol i believe it comes out to about the same as retail plus tax. Unfortunately will end up with some extras I dont need but might be able to trade them.

    It would be nice to find a few junkions at retail as well.

    I think some people think they might fall in the last/final wave syndrome. But like a lot of figures in the final end of a line, they end up at discount stores like Marshall's and Ross.

    I'll pick them up when they hit retail. If I can't, I'll hope to find them at TJ Maxx

    My target has been great in stocking stuff, so I'll take a chance there.

    I don't think they'll be too hard to find, they're not that popular, or they'll end up becoming common later on. I remember going to the States this summer and expecting to have trouble finding Warpath and Wheeljack, but they were plentiful!

    I keep waffling on keeping my pre-order (havent cancelled it yet though). Most stores around me are prettymuch bone dry on Generations so I would expect that it won't be tough to get them (atleast Blackshadow). But at the same time, I havent been as relentless at my hunting, and I may spend a lot of time looking for the Junkion. At the same time, I am gonna want a whole lot of the Junkion, so I will be hunting anyway. It is nice to have the security blanket on atleast one set if none of it works out.

    Damn that is a lot of rambling by me.

    I've got mine secured on preorder, just the two of them. Can't wait for these two - a trio of Junkions will be awesome (I got Scrapheap off of Tony Preto of Tempting Toys over the summer), Black Shadow is something I'll never have the original of, so this will be a more than adequate alternative.

    Pity they're going to be harder to get, though.
