    1) Hasbro say "December", but from experience, that could mean anything between now and February.

    2) Yes, unless you count Primus with Bonus Mini-Cons.

    BBTS just got Hightail in stock, but how they got him in stock and not the last of the Minicons... Seems bizarre.

    Sold out on preorders, that's why.

    EDIT: Same reason they got Titanium Optimus Primal in stock, but no Scourge. Scourge is more popular.

    If Energon and Armada are anything to go by, they'll never reach heavy saturation and will be extremely difficult to find in-store.

    As long as I can find them online for a reasonable price, I don't care. I just want to be able to purchase them SOME place besides eBay...

    Hightail interests me, but I'll pass on the minicons since I have the Galaxy Force versions of their original forms.

    Well, my local stores, Target, Wally World, Costco etc. have been really good with Cybertron. I think I'll wait and dodge the additional cost. Both BBTS and Bill's are a little too expensive for just 2 Scout Class Transformers, even if they are the last 2 to complete Galaxy Force-Cybertron.

    I think I will wait for them to come to my Wal-Mart. It might suck when it comes to Voyager, Ultra, Leader, Supreme, and sometimes Deluxe but I think I have seen at least one of every Basic, although I can't recall seeing Yellow Scrapmetal and Breakdown GTS.

    I haven't seen anything in Walmart, Target, or Toys'R'Us back rooms. A lot of the stores here actually have older waves still waiting. That in mind, I'd expect to see them in WalMart first, as Walmart is notorious for not having Transformers in their back rooms and throwing everything on the floor.
