    Eh, but he'll be in stores for a good 6-7 months before the movie stuff hits, I doubt he'll be that hard to find. Good news that Cliffjumper and Ramjet aren't getting stiffed since they're only in one wave, though.

    The only two in that deluxe wave that I want are Cliffjumper and Ramjet, so it's good news that they will be pretty plentiful to start out. Peace out.

    Hmm they seem to think boys are more likely to want the racing car than the dinosaur.

    Given Mirage was 2 to Grimlock's 1 in the last assortment, I'd have thought that the numbers would have been reversed.
    Then again, why is Hot Rod still there? Three waves in and the poor guy will be warming shelves, unless Hasbro are counting on him being recognisable because of the new release of the animated movie and the use of him in the more recent lines. Still, I'd hate for him to sit and warm shelves that could be utilised by another Grimlock.

    That's a weird assortment. You'd think Rodimus would be dropped in favor of another Grimlock.

    I wonder if there will be a revision assortment later on with no new toys but bumping Grimlock up to 2 per case.

    Glad I have Grimlock in my hands then.

    But yeah, I'd have thought that they would shortpack Mirage for this case instead of Grimlock.

    Or even better, take out Rodimus entirely and do two each of Mirage, Grimlock, Cliffjumper, and Ramjet.

    Er... WTF? Seriously. I really don't think Rodimus (as cool as he is) should stick around for three waves. The poor guy will be clogging the shelves... oh well... maybe they'll have a revision released at some point.

    If Classics assortments are anything like Cybertron, we'll probably see a second revision of wave 2 with 2x Grimlock and 1x Mirage. Same goes for Wave 3.

    All I have to say is we better see an abundance of Jetfire.

    No ifs, ands, or buts.

    Bottom line.

    Period.

    End of statement.

    Stupid Question:

    If this is Wave 3, than what is Wave 2?
    I would have thought Wave 3 would have some new molds (Cosmos possibly).

    I'll second that. Of course I need to add that I better find my Mirage soon and hopefully I can manage a Grimlock for my [6 year old] son. He really wants one for x-mas.
