I am surprised that more people are not talking about this. With all the problems surrounding distribution and the like, it may be difficult for one to amass all of the Combaticons if they are released separately. That is why I am hoping Hasbro is releasing them as a boxed set. One of the reasons Hasbro has probably been leery about combiners is the fact that one has to gather all the pieces to make it separately, and sometimes, you won't be able to find the last piece you need, etc. I predict a LOT of scalping coming out of this if they are separate. Also, if the are released in a wave together, they could either completely revise the case structure as 10 toys per, and have 2 of each, or leave it as 8 and give us 2 of each Combaticon, with the fifth in another Wave, or leave it as eight and have on Combaticon shortpacked, with a case revision for the shortpacked one later. Either way, I don't predict anything good of them being released separately. It's a combiner, and you want to get all the pieces at once. This is better for parents, fans, and pretty much everyone. So please, FOC Bruticus NEEDS to be a boxset. I know I am panicking as that might have been the plan all along, but I really hope that Hasbro doesn't give us a swift kick in the nuts and make this amazing toy and piece of TF history impossible to complete.
