    Boring but I know some of you guys like this stuff

    Generations Wave 6 assortment due january is

    2x Thunderwing
    2x Skullgrin
    2x Scourge
    2x Sergeant Kup

    Hunt for the Decepticons Wave 6 assortment due january is

    2x Perceptor (G1)
    2x Optimus Prime (G2 Laser Rods)
    2x Wreck-Gar (G1)
    2x Bumblebee (G1 with Black Stripes)


    Both really good for retailers, not a stinker insight for a change (working on the actual interest for Bumble turns into sales)

    Odd, other info we've gotten is that Skullgrin is out of the assortment for Wave 6, not Cliffjumper.

    Sergeant Kup? Has Hasbro lost the rights to Kup too? Sheesh... :D 

    Is Bumblebee going to be pretty much the Classics 'Bee with black stripes? I haven't had the privilage of seeing any pic-a-tures, sorry.

    Since they're scheduled for January, 2011, knowing my area stores, I won't see them until March at the earliest. :( 

    Edit:

    Just found pic of BB. Me likey. :)

    yeah Bee is the yellow with black stripes and as for Cliffy this was the official solicitation from Hasbro but they always pop the subject to change bit on the bottom so it could change :)

    Both are probably correct, and are "revision" case assortments for the same wave.

    Will they really be packaged HFTD? I thought it'd be RTS by then.

    Yeah, thought he was getting carried over instead. Still, the case assortments seem solid, nothing shortpacked or anything which is good.

    If they lose the rights they can't use the name at all.

    A prefix is usually used in the case when the regular name is just too plain to copyright.

    Sgt. Kup is cool... though I'm having a hard time not thinking Sgt. Hound. Might have been good for a chuckle to name him something like "Plasma Ion Cannon Kup"

    Are rumble and Frenzy going to be small enough to be shipped together in a Delxue package?

    I'm wondering if Generations Wave 7 could be Wheeljack and Rumble/Frenzy.

    IIRC, we don't know of any other new molds in the pipeline....

    IF Hasbro sells them together, they'll be in the Voyager packaging and price point.

    Honestly, I think they'll do it since there really aren't any Voyagers we know about, though we're bound to get a redeco of Highbrow.

    Rumble and Frenzy are speculated to either be a voyager 2-pack(like the Japanese release) or individual scouts.

    We know of a lot of new molds in the pipeline, but nothing "new, new". New TF3 molds will show up in May/June most likely, so given the new molds we know about and repaints/remolds, it seems fairly full. Maybe a couple other new molds here and there like a voyager, a couple scouts and maybe more legends.

    Well this is going to make finding 2 wreckgars harder.

    It will? There's two in each case... it's not like he's shortpacked.

    If theyd replace perceptor with cliffjumper, it would be an almost perfect wave...maybe a seeker instead of perceptor...Wow, I guess I really dont like perceptor...
