    Maybe those are the cases for the North American release? He was missing from the SDCC reveal. I assumed it was because he was too similar to Bulkhead.

    I'm good with that too since those were the only Voyagers I was interested in. Sucks for those that did want "Brawn" though.

    Kapows Hasbro stock would originate from Asia anyway.

    Personally, thought Brawn was fairly awful....and Megatron is the only other one of the three i dont have yet.....

    Agreed.

    However if he leaks out on ebay. He is bought immediately.

    He was up on Ebay a few weeks ago. There were several of them (maybe from the same seller). I was going to buy one and before I could, all of the listings ended saying that the item was no longer available. Not sure what to make of it.

    Hopefully/Maybe Brawn was pulled so he can be re-thought in a better design homage?

    I knew this was cancelled. I guess Roadbuster will still be a deluxe. However, if this is wrong, I will probably pick this up.

    Things are not going so well with FE Bulkhead molds, especially remolds.

    I was going to pick him up for the sheer odd factor. Oh well. Perhaps if the first round of "GDO" stuff does well enough they will bring it out later for a second wave.

    Shoot- I really wanted this one! And why couldn't they have replaced his spot in the case with another Hot Spot, not Megatron. Gahhh... disappointment galore.

    I am happy Megatron is 2 per case. I already have Hot Spot and Power Dive.

    How do you already have those two? Were they released in Asia already? If so, why has Robotkingdom not gotten my set out already? I didn't know these were out already.

    Makes sense really - if the GDO Brawn is on shelves at a similar time as FE Bulkhead, it'd be a VERY similar looking toy and could easily confuse any parent/kid wanting 'the big green Autobot'.

    Make sense they'd pull him. Not not to mention he was by far the least interesting of the four.
