    I think he means that, by there being three of these, he's saying that the case assortment breaks down to this:

    3 X Wheelie
    3 X Swerve
    1 X Springer
    1 X whoever the hell else was in this wave (FE CJ retool I think)

    And it was reported earlier that the case brake down was 2X of each??? I could be mistaking though.

    Is there a picture I can't see because of the work server, or is that it?

    I mean, that's nice and all... but we already know they're hitting shelves.

    He didn't know this was old news, what do you want him to do? Offer one of his limbs as an apology? Lol

    That'd be nice. Maybe he could give me his arm and leg. Then I'll finally be able to afford that Fort Max I've been eyeing...

    They were supposed to be early on and now they are Asia and TRU exclusives.

    They were mass-released by Hasbro Asia earlier this year.

    Toys R Us picked them up for the North American market, exclusive to them, for the Christmas season.

    Correct. Hasbro evidently picked up on the fandom chatter that US fans really wanted a shot at a few of these, so worked out a way to offer them to fans in the US.

    They're still technically the "Asia" series since the US release is being referred to as "China Import".
