    I've been searching for the Preview figures since the 15th in Upstate NY, and not only have I not found any, I haven't found any evidence that ANYBODY has found any here on the east coast! As far as I can tell, the Preview figures were simply never sent here at all!

    At this rate, I'll have bought the real ROTF toys from Hasbro at Botcon before I ever see the Preview figs... :crazy: 

    Is anyone seeing the Preview figures, or are they just a myth?

    Come to glorious UK-topia, where we're tripping over the damn things. Not that, you're missing much. Soundwave is sufficiently poor that I couldn't be bothered to put him in the pictures of my ROTF stuff.

    I've seen one lone preview 'Bee at the Wal-Mart I frequent. No Soundwave though.

    Nope, although I unexpectedly ran into Leader Prime and Megatron at Kmart of all places. At $49.99, not even worth my time to attempt buying.

    I have not seen the preview wave...at all. The only ROTF items I find are the voice changer helemets and the robot heroes.

    I anxiously await the Leaders, and Deluxe Ravage. I know it is a week away, and I can wait...but I am a TF fan, so it annoys me to wait.

    They are everywhere here. I didn't bother with BB, and I wish I had not bothered with Soundwave.

    I live over in Western New York, so if I find some, I'll let you know. Distribution should be relatively similar, since we're so close. But back on topic, I've never seen the toys. Getting Soundwave for comic purposes, and because I'm a Soundwave fanboy, but from what I've heard, I should be reconsidering.

    If there isn't an Earth Soundwave, then my purchase will be justified. Hey, it happened with Purple Shockwave! :D

    No preview figures, but I've seen (and purchased) Robot Heroes and FAB's.

    My "preview" BB was torn from my hands by an overzealous TRU asst. manager. He said the street date on the assortment was 5/30. The shipping box said 5/15. This man was clearly an asshat.

    Local Wal*Mart said the ONLY release date they have is the 30th. NO 15th for Nuthin'.

    Went by my local Wal-Mart to look for Marvel Universe figures and they don't have any of the preview figures out just the movie related Robot Heroes figures.

    In Alabama, I haven't seen any preview. But let's be realistic: its Alabama. I have seen some legends and RH at Walmart. Not worth the fight.
