    I do not know if this is news or the first sighting of these, but I was out this morning, and found the new wave of Bot Shot Singles at TRU in Frederick MD

    They were
    Mirage
    Autobot Ratchet
    Decepticon Brawl
    Super Bumblebee (chase)

    Not seeing the sealed case, I do not know if the assortment re-hashed any of the Wv 1 figures.

    Here is the pic

    The constant repaint retooling in this line is going to quickly kill my desire to collect them

    The hunt begins anew! I need that Brawl and Ratchet, and maybe Mirage.

    I wish Mirage was getting as much love on the screen or games as he is with toys these days. He's been due for a long time.

    I believe it is indeed the first sighting of Wave 2. Somebody on the Bot Shots thread found them at a TRU in Pennsylvania this morning too.

    I know BBTS told me today that wave 2 was in my pile of loot, didn't think they'd get to retail that quickly...

    Good question. :) 

    I wanted to get into this line...but after spending SO MUCH on Prime and Cyberverse, I had to pass on these. Just don't have the money or the shelf space. lol Plus they pretty much look the same in robot mode, while the vehicle modes have some personality to them.

    I thought the codes are already on the Bot Shots? They have those #XXXXX numbers on them if you look on the Bot Shot figures themself.

    I'm not gonna be looking for the Super Bot release of Bumblebee (I'm hoping to get just one version of each character), but I will be getting Mirage, Ratchet, and Brawl at some point.

    That Brawl looks kind of cool. I like how they're mixing G1 and Movie aesthetics with these little guys.

    They almost look like lil-formers.

    Godamnit I want them all!

    Still like Robot Heroes better though.

    WAY better, if they did a large scale Robot Heroes Metroplex that would be all I needed.

    I believe those are manufacturing identification marks. If i remember correctly, the figures are supposed to start coming with a card with something like a 12 digit number or something like that (probably similar to the code cards included with the Hunt for the Decepticons line) in May(ish).
