    If this is not news, then sorry for the repetitive post. I searched the board and did not find this already posted...

    ... Demolition Rumble is listed on Hasbro's information site, but we obviously know its not on HTS. I am wondering if this might still see release at some point.

    Problem is, it's listed as 'Reveal the Shield' which is a dead line...

    Yeah, I saw that. Wishful thinking.

    Dunno.

    It's a memorial that someone at Hasbro left up.

    Windcharger, Chopsaw, Grapple, Lugnut, Strafe, all made it to retail...albeit mostly overseas.

    Is there any evidence Bodyblock, Rumble and Downshift ever made it past a few packaged samples?

    It's the same as TFA Thundercracker and the Bulkhead repaint. They had pages like this on Hasbro's site (and prob still do, haven't looked for awhile) but they obviously never saw release.

    Although I think the Rumble mold has a much higher chance of seeing an eventual release due to it's a completely new mold which has only been released by Takara. But I very much doubt it'll be in the RTS line.

    I thought rumble made it overseas. Maybe I am wrong.

    Hasbro UK solicited the case for last...March, i think it was, then it turned into vapor. One person in the U.K. claimed to have seen Downshift, but it was never proven far as i can remember.

    More generally though, if there was anything close to a proper overseas release, there'd have been a few listed on eBay.


    I keep saying this, but If Scout case assortments are gone for good.... i would expect at least one retailer to be happy enough to take the two of them, in one box, as an exclusive.

    TRU would seem the most likely candidate?



    Once the slip out of China, they could end up anywhere. I'm fairly sure we've seen leaked products pop up yahoo auctions Japan before.
