    I wonder why there are no Voyagers in wave 6 or Ultras in Universe waves 5/6.

    For Ultras, it's about the right pace, though I can still find Wave 1 Ultras here and there so it's not a scale selling all that fast. Voyagers being mostly repaints in Universe they might be holding back on overloading, seeing how that's what got Universe 1 in trouble.

    Universe?

    The line is all but done until after the movie toys.

    Tru still has the Silverbolt repaint and Bruticus still is left.

    Voyagers are done unless they sneak in a Grapple remold.

    Ebay:
    i am hoping to find a Powerglide on severe markdown and just sit back for the movie stuff.

    i am okay with the few and far between of huge TFs if they are of Inferno's quality.

    a bunch of ho-hum shelfwarmers only kills the size class.

    Because Dropshot, Heavy Load, Silverbolt, and Onslaught still shelfwarm.

    How do people find looping revision onslaught though?

    Are they just reissueing the wave 1 case as a fix or including it in a later ultra wave? ...speculation.
    If I just order annother onslaught now from hasbro toy shop will it be the looping version?

    Oh well Toys R Us exclusive Darkwind and Countdown should be available soon.
    That's a fine fix for bigger toys.

    Hasbro seems to be putting all the big toys into Star Wars, the new Turbo Tank is going to be huge!!!. If only we got an Omega Supreme that big, hopefully from the rumours about the new Deavstator being 2ft tall will pave they way for something to happen.

    Later wave. Onslaught ships in a Wave 3 revision with Storm Cloud, and maybe with Bruticus. I can't find Universe Wave 4 case ratios.

    Do not order Onslaught anywhere expecting it to have the looping siren. All the usual places have been carrying Onslaught since the get-go, and have even put him on clearance during Christmas without running out. You're guaranteed nothing unless you buy him in person.

    How very specific. Thanks for all that information. I'll be sure to pass that on if it comes up.
