    So for the initial batch of ROTF NA figures namely Dirge, Bludgeon, Recon 'Hide et al there are a mixture of release dates quoted.

    BBTS says November whilst others sites like Robot Kingdom say Jan '10.

    Anyone know the final word on this?

    Thanks!!

    Hasbro definitely said they were for jan 2010 forward.

    BBTS has preorders in november though.

    Ehh. Hard to say. You put up a valid point. But when bbts says november they can push that to the end of the month or beyond. I've worked with their preorders before. I would'nt be surprised if they had something stocked in december. But the mass retailers will optimisticly have new figures halfway through january.

    Thanks for the info Grimwing. I guess I'm just one the many "I want it yesterday" fans for the upcoming Nest Alliance figures. Cheers!

    Wave 1 of "next year's" product typically hits late Nov/early Dec.

    He speaks and it shall be.

    No sooner than you say this, Ian7, and news on the first new wave being available on shelves appears.

    Are you psychic?

    January? Crap.

    So much for finding Bludgeon under the tree this year.

    they aren't likely to be on shelves at retail until the other voyagers sell, which could be past January for sure. Sucks, but most stores won't bring in new stock till the old is depleted.

    Mhm, can't scan out what ain't out, and what ain't scanned (generally) don't get new stock pulled.

    Sad but true fact of retail. So buy up them shelf warmers so we can get the goods flowing.
