    Hi,

    Just wondering does anyone have ANY information on DOTM Deluxe and Human Alliance Soundwave being sold in the US?

    Like a release date? Will it ever come or do I have to buy it online from overseas?

    Info would be appreciated!

    Thanks!

    Unless they've been moved into the Movie All Star line, probably not.

    And we wont know for sure what's happening with the movie All-Star line until toy-fair, which is in about nine days time.

    If you have the money, might as well order them online to avoid uncertainty. But only if you really really want them.

    Dammit, I love this m'fer more each day

    I wasn't aware that they were changing the name to "all-star line", but maybe. I think he was referring to the Movie Trilogy line.

    It's the rumored Trilogy/all stars line to supposedly follow up DOTM. We only have the vaguest of hints regarding it, when/if will it come, and what will it have in it, so we can't really tell you a lot about it.

    Pretty much, but don't get too excited about toy fair either. It's the best way to avoid disappointment.

    ........and have a list places where to get them if Toy Fair doesn't provide the answer many are looking for.

    And by many are looking for, if the answer at toy fair isn't positive, be quick, because they'll dry up.

    Don't know the release date so I grabbed a Deluxe Soundwave from Taiwan on eBay. Lucked out on the bid & only paid $20 (voyager money). I only like the upper half of the HA so I doubt I'll get that. Deluxe needs some mass up top though.

    HA Soundwave has already gotten his Hasbro Asia and Takara release which I think is the same. No news yet of what Hasbro US plans to do. My nearby Targets are still overflowing with their current HA waves.

    they go for about $30 plus taxes, give or take what state you're in. However HA soundwave is pushing $60 not including S/H. I too am wanting the old hag, but as much as i hate to admit it, its looking like HA Mudflap pt. 2 :-(

    Same here which is why I haven't bought any imports.

    Typically I always try to avoid paying more than retail value unless it becomes hard to find or something. Human Alliance looks great and extra tempting with the in scale Laserbeak but I'm still going for the deluxe due to the smaller deluxe scale and well....I can always paint that bad boy up to look more movie accurate.

    Perhaps I'll get the HA version if it's on sale or something whenever it comes stateside.

    I got my Deluxe Soundwave off of TFSource. Leadfoot is my only problem right now... Then I just need to hope the All-Star line FINALLY does Mirage so my "Autobots alive at the end of DOTM" shelf is complete...

    It's listed as "All Star Deluxes" and "All Star Voyagers" in Target's computer system, so that's where the All-Stars name is coming from. Doesn't mean that's actually what it's going to be called, of course. Toy Fair will answer that one.

    As for HA Soundwave, I think the window is closing fast. Target is discontinuing the Human Alliance line, both Basics and the full-size figures, so they won't be getting him in. I theorize that Wal-Mart and K-Mart will follow suit. At this point, I don't expect to ever see him on store shelves.

    That's what I'm doing. I'll be getting a second HA Soundwave to customize differently than my first one. I've been watching ebay every day to make sure they're still there and the prices are holding steady (there's been a slight increase, but not enough to worry about yet). If the prices go up before toyfair I'll buy immediately.

    Otherwise I'm waiting until the question is addressed/we see something at toyfair. If I'm satisfied they'll get it to shelves I'll wait, otherwise I'll get one off ebay immediately (the prices will probably shoot up once everybody knows Hasbro has no solution- which is most likely).
