    Listed at ACD Distribution:

    TRAN: Gen Special Ed Dlx Blast Off (6)

    TRAN: Gen Special Ed Dlx Repugnus (6)

    This pretty much confirms that neither is an exclusive, at least not exclusive to any particular chain. They might still be "online exclusives" like "May Mayhem" Quickslinger, Brake-Neck and Groove.


    Also listed (previously revealed through the Raffy Rodriguez Hasbro leak):

    TRAN: Cyber Battalion Sideswipe (8)
    TRAN: Cyber Battalion Shockwave (8)


    There's also going to be a Bumblebee Movie Optimus Prime role-play mask:
    TRAN: MV6: RP Mask Radar (6)

    (We previously learned that "Radar" was Optimus Prime's cOde name for the Studio Series)

    TRAN: MV6: Energon Igniters 10 Radar (8)

    TRAN: MV6: Energon Ign 20 Stryker 1 (4)

    TRAN: Gen Studio Ser Voyager 30 Fox (2)

    (We previously learned that this is ROTF Megatron)

    TRAN: Gen Studio Series Deluxe Brawl (2)

    (This is an error, the Hasbro product code number matches up with Voyager Class Brawl)

    TRAN: Gen Project Storm 10 1 (6)
    TRAN: Gen Project Storm 10 2 (6)

    I foresee that the Cyber Battalion Shockwave will be extremely hard to find and will be scalped a lot. Given that it will be the first voyager'ish sized G1 based Shockwave released.

    Very interested in that Cyber Battalion Shockwave. I own the Jetfire and it's a great fit for my Classics shelf. If Shockwave is a similar size, I'll be ecstatic.

    Large simplified toys. Think Voyager Class size with the complexity of a Legion Class figure.

    2015's initial wave had five figures:
    Optimus Prime: BWTF, 16bit
    Bumblebee:BWTF, 16bit
    Grimlock: BWTF, 16bit
    Megatron: BWTF, 16bit
    Starscream: BWTF, 16bit

    2017's second wave added two new figures:
    Prowl: BWTF, 16bit
    Jetfire: 16bit

    Now 2018 sees the release of the third wave with Sideswipe and Shockwave.

    The Raffy Rodriguez Hasbro leak only featured colored versions of the G1 character models for Sideswipe and Shockwave.

    EDIT: Very quick recreation of the leak, minus the text:

    Actually it was the G1 character models in color. Basically, it looked very close to this, plus a bunch of text:

    Hopefully Shockwave is more G1 or FOC looking rather than Prime cartoon.

    I keep seeing the Optimus and Prowl at Walgreens. I'm tempted by the Optimus.

    $9.99 is the wholesale price offered to the retailer whose page this leaked from.

    The retail price should be double. So $20.

    I accidentally posted it in the wrong section, someone else saw it at TFormers and posted it in News & Rumors.

    It’s weird that they both have you as the topic starter. Usually they merge threads when that happens. Not your fault, but now we have two threads with essentially the same conversations.

    I corrected the issue just now. Renamed the threads correctly and moved the Repugnus comments to the other thread. Have a great weekend. :)
