    Ok so i was just looking at the case allocations for the generations waves and couldnt help but notice that Kup and scourge are supplied in three whole waves (two, three and four) does anyone else think thats an awful lot of the two of them although there seems to be a lot of wheeljack's and thundercrackers too


    Wave 2
    2xThunderwing
    2xcliffjumper
    1xscourge
    1xkup

    Wave 3
    2xscourge
    2xkup
    2xwheeljack
    2xthundercracker

    wave 4
    2 x Warpath
    2 x Wheeljack
    2 x Thundercracker
    1 x Sergeant Kup

    I think Kup (and Thunderwing) will shelf warm. The others are fine.

    It is a lot, but it also depends on how long the case is shipped and how heavily. It may nto end up as a lot. Other Generations figures IIRC have shipped in 3 waves and are no longer shelf warming (at least from what I've seen).

    Right. I should say "if anything does shelfwarm, it will be Thunderwing and Kup."

    Thunderwing has been heating up shelves all across PA.

    It's quite annoying when you consider that Perceptor and Wreck-Gar aren't Generations, but Cliffjumper is. Most of the stores I see don't have much besides Generations and previous RTS waves. I originally thought I would have to scramble to get Thundercracker and Wheeljack, but it looks like Perceptor and WG may be harder to find.....unless waves 3-4 never materialize because of DOTM toys bumping them out, like what happened with the Ratchet wave of Universe 2.0. I may say to hell with it and order them all.

    I haven't seen Scourge or Kup anywhere in my area and I've been looking for the last month.

    Also when are Warpath, Thundercracker and Wheeljack being released?

    Lots of Thundercracker and Wheeljack is what I want to see - hopefully I won't miss out on them.

    The case revisions will probably drop down to 1@ as seems to be the history with Generations and then older Generations will be carried forward. Prob. inserting more Thunderwing, Skullgrin, CJ, and possibly Blurr/Dirge since those would be the most logical carry-forwards. Keep in mind whole areas might just get a case revision instead of the initial shipment.

    From what I understand, Kup and Scourge are one each to a case right now. (I was told this by someone who has a store)

    I'd like to see Kup shelfwarm, then I'd be able to get one.....same with scourge

    Both BBTS and Entertainment Earth list case assortments for everything they sell. Just check out their websites for the toys in question.

    Sorry dude

    And Madhatprime
    if scourge and kup are one per case it means that's wave 3 but i wouldnt worry if you cant get one as they are going to be in abundance during the next two waves

    i just thaught it was odd we were getting so much of those two figures over all the others however wheeljack and thundercracker seem to be doing the same it may just be hasbros new thing of providing figures during three waves instead of just two but i thaught it was noteworthy

    Yea, most Targets are getting a revision case that comes with one of each, WFC Megs, WFC Soundwave, Blurr, and I can't remember the others (also I am too lazy to look it up), probably Cliffy, Thunderwing, mixed in there.

    Once they start showing up, I'll do my part to ensure that Scourge does not shelf-warm! I need some Sweeps!

    I agree with the OP that it is strange that there's so many Kups.

    If you look at just the cases for Generations the scarcest figures are Thrust, Darkmount, and Warpath (so far). Of course that doesn't reflect the distribution. Blurr was htf for a while around Minnesota. But now I've seen plenty since then.

    Yup that's them. It also seems that the revision case for RTS figures are now starting to show up too which have Jazz and Tracks back in the asst.

    Hopefully that means that they rest of the new waves will be showing up soon.
