    When is DOTM Deluxe wave 4 coming out? I believe it's supposed to be sometime in July, but does anyone know a more specific date than that?

    Waves don't really get specific dates. I'm assuming it'll be somewhere at or around SDCC, because they'll probably be unveiling a lot more of the DOTM toys there.

    I would *guess* it's going to be very shortly after the movie opens.

    But i could be wrong.

    With wave 3 already showing up in places, I wouldn't at all be surprised if wave 4 started to show up later this month. Though I wouldn't expect it to hit full saturation till mid to late next month.

    I just hope wave 3 shows up around here soon. That way I can make Thundercracker my first DotM purchase, and I don't get antsy and buy something I don't really want, lol.

    Hasbro said at their botcon panel the new waves will be coming out and revealed shortly after the movie release because they still want to keep characters quiet.

    Yeah. Pretty much this is the wave of repaints, so it'll probably be out at any time. I'm far more interested in Wave 5.

    I don't remember them ever saying anything about any specific waves being released shortly after the movie came out, but I do remember reading that they would be revealing Deluxe wave 6 sometime afterwards.

    Wave 4 is just two repaints shipped out with wave filler, and wave 5 is two repaints an a new mold not related to any on-screen character (well, that we know of anyways). Wave 6 is the wave they're keeping all hushed up, though I'd be surprised if it wasn't Mirage, Wheeljack, and Soundwave.

    Oh great so all we're getting is repaints,how lame.I was hoping we would atleast get deluxe Leadfoot but as with his HA version I think Leadfoot will also end up a Target Exclusive,which that sucks monkey butt.As for Walmarts exclusive deluxe Prime I still haven't been able to find him,where is he.


    Oh that is so lovely,so for the next 2 waves we can expect repacks.The toy shelves are gonna be cluttered with umpteen million figures nobody wants.I really
    think Hasbro is out of their minds if they expect people will buy 3 waves of the same figs.I mean come on Hasbro,if you think people are gonna buy lame repaints
    and remolds for 2 more waves your nuts.That is all.

    I recall seeing it in the live feed and it looks to be the case. Movie is out in less than 2 weeks and wave three deluxes are just coming out.

    That's Air Raid, and he's in wave 5. Wave 6's figures haven't been announced yet.

    Hasbro said at BotCon that they're looking to reveal wave 6 shortly after the DOTM premiere. Presumably this means via photos, not by having toys show up in stores. They have yet to reveal wave 5 publicly (though I think pics were shown at BotCon; I wasn't there so I can't be sure) so I suspect we will see pics of Wave 5 along with Wave 6 some time in early July. Wave 6 presumably introduces
    Soundwave
    ,
    Wheeljack
    , and/or
    Mirage
    . (Not sure if those should be spoilered, but better safe than sorry.)

    As for wave 4, my guess would be an early July release to coincide with the DOTM premiere. I don't know how widespread wave 3 is at this point; all I know is that it has yet to reach Canada.

    Wave 4 introduces Specialist Ratchet (a red repaint of the deluxe Ratchet from wave 1) and Cyberfire Bumblebee (a repaint of deluxe Bumblebee from wave 1). The listings also show "Buzzard", who may be Laserbeak or who may be Laserbeak's repaint (who has so far only been seen on Laserbeak's instruction sheet).

    Wave 6 is obviously Mirage, Wheeljack, and Soundwave. That's definitely going to be the wave I'm going to buy all at once, or none at all.
