    So, I've never really followed the releases of waves before. I just went to the store on my regular shopping, cruised by the toy aisle, and saw what was what. But, Generations has me excited.

    To any of you veterans, how far are waves usually spaced apart, on average?

    Early in the line it could be a couple weeks, to a couple months. Universe it was a couple months, ROTF last year seemed like we had multiple waves at the release date then a couple weeks for the next waves.

    I would say it depends on where you live. When a new wave is spotted on the west coast, it usually takes close to a month for them sto show up in my area.

    Depends on many factors like volume ordered, sales, how aggressive Hasbro is with new waves, and those will further vary my regional locations.

    For a line like Generations, being a secondary line, I'd expect Wave 1 in August (sooner depending on distribution and store issues), wave 2 should be hitting in late September, with wave 3 hitting in October with wave 4/wave 1 2011 hitting in December.

    That's sort of what I was assuming, since there's not a new movie or cartoon to get behind. Though since we're seeing Wave 1 here in Texas maybe WfC bumped up Wave 1 to July.

    No one knows.

    Your best bet is to check in on your local sightings thread. Once you see them spotted there; start looking.

    The name tabs at botcon suggested that wave two will be released July (coinciding with MP Grimlock?) It said wave one was out now (and for the most part it is)
