    May 2012?

    Isn't that a bit early?

    These should actually be easy to find, decent case ratios too.

    Yea, that does suck.

    And unfortunately, to me, it's not worth it to order a Bumblebee and a Dead End just to get her from BBTS.

    Not even Shockwave is up for singular order at two per case? BBTS is getting into the nasty habit of making you get a bundle to grab any demanded character, it seems. One per case figures, I can see, but cmon, drop Shockwave as a singular.

    I don't like it, but I understand it. Gotta get rid of those Primes and Jazzes somehow.

    Definitely getting that Shockwave, and I'm glad it shouldn't be difficult. But I really see the rest of this wave shelfwarming at collectors sites. Prime had a better looking release two years ago, and Jazz had an even more recent figure that looked better, had more gimmicks, and a more iconic (ie EARTH) alt-mode. I just can't see many collectors jumping at the bit for either of them.

    May? Wow, pretty early for releasing them, but I suppose it's a good way to lead into the new game.

    They'll probably be set up with the summer toy resets, gotta add Spidey and Battleship after all :p

    Disregarding the PRIME set up, it's pretty ridiculous that there's no individual Shockwave for preorder.

    He's not one per case and he's in a case with other popular characters...who cost 16 USD per piece in singles.

    No thanks.

    I didn't think the Prime case assortments could get any more f***ed up. Looks like I was wrong:

    NO Vehicon?
    ONE Airachnid?

    Yet of course there are two each of the 'new' Bumblebee and the Wheeljack repaint.

    Say what you will I guess. Personally, I think this is getting ridiculous. I hate to resort to the scalpers, but if this keeps up I don't know how else I'm going to be able to find these.

    We might even be better off waiting until wave 2 and order a case. If it has the 5 Combaticons, that leaves 3 slots which would hopefully be 1x Prime, 1x Jazz, and 1x Shockwave.

    With our luck it'll be 3x Optimus :lol

    I REALLY hope during the questions portion at Botcon that SOMEONE will ask Hasbro WTF they were thinking when they came up with their case assortments.

    Considering that OP and Jazz are listed individually, SW WILL be up for preorder at some point - I mean what are they going to do with him after filling those preorders.

    Most likely they are just waiting to see how many Primes and Jazzes are ordered so they KNOW how many SW will be available rather than being stuck with a bunch of stuff they have to clearance out because everyone just wanted SW only.

    Being a first wave, I don't foresee any of these being a problem to get at retail...
