    I was lucky enuff to catch the hasbro rep at my local tru yesterday and she informed me that the generations toy line would be hitting store shelves at the same time as war for cybertron, and that there would be a huge display in both the boys toy area of most stores as well as the r zone. So start looking for those war for cybertron toys as well thrust and drift at your local tru start as early as next week or as late as the 22nd.

    I wish I could get a straight answer as to if this was also true internationally... especially in the U.K.

    Ehh. Already have Prime and BB through TRU.com. Not interested in Drift or Thrust. When the heck is the yellow packaged toys coming out?

    If TRU is getting them in, it seems like Target and Wal-Mart ought to be too, unless TRU made a special deal. Do we know the DPCI number yet?

    A friend of mine who also works at TRU told me this morning to be there the day the game drops. I already have mine set to go at Game Stop, but he said they were going to have a huge set up. He never lets me down when new stuff is coming out (* Ani. Arcee*). Here's to be optimistic!

    Eh. Considering the toys are already out in Australia of all places, it makes sense.

    Already sighted.

    Yeah and wave 2 of the ROTF Line was stated for August as well, yet was launched alongside Wave 1 at most places.

    This might just be the special wave of just prime and bumblebee that TRU's website had, and that amazon.com has.

    Yep, original release was August, but I think the same thing happened with the first wave of Universe figures in Summer of 08, that showed up right after the Animated figures, a month or so early.

    This is what I am thinking. Since TRU and Amazon have only BB and OP online, it only makes since for the stores to get these first in the supposed "preview" wave. Sucks since I want Drift and have the WFC figs already.

    Groovy I'm all to happy to get new toys, and I can't say I'm supprised seeing as I was figuring that they were holding on to all the new tfs till around botcon and it's more or less the same weekend anyway

    Sometimes they do, sometimes they don't. I remember they had Animated Ultra Magnus a month before retail, but other stuff takes them longer. You never know. Right now they say August.

    Interesting, but I expect they'll have the WFC figures and nothing else, as already speculated.

    I think the Powercore Combiners might show up fairly soon... it might be before August and I had information from Hasbro that said that more RPMs are out in July too... but I think the ones they may have ment might actually be out already.
