    Hey guys, long time reader, new member ... just got an email from BBTS about a new case assortment for Generations wave 2 (Bruticus).

    "Hi - we wanted to let you know that Hasbro has just announced a new and slightly different Generations Deluxe case assortment called Series 02 Revision 02. This case is exactly the same as what you preordered (Series 02), except they replace one of the two Optimus Prime figures with Shockwave. So the case now contains Shockwave, Prime, Jazz, and one each of the 5 figures that form Bruticus. We have moved all preorders over to the new assortment, which is also scheduled to arrive in September. If for any reason you wish to receive the original case that contains 2 primes and 0 shockwave, you can just reply to this email and we will switch it back for you, or you can place the new order on our site and cancel your preorder for the Wave 02 Revision 02 Case.

    Thanks!

    OR! and this is just a theory, their doing what they've always said they'd do and adjust the cases based not on a few whiney fanboys but on actual sales figures.

    Yeah, I checked, and at least for the time being my preorder has been changed, so if as far as BBTS is concerned, that's the case assortment they're getting (as well as the original). Glad to see more people having a shot with Shockwave and we're not getting TOO flooded with Prime.

    I never said they were learning from fanboys

    edit: but how would they have sales figures of individual characters when they sell to retailers in cases? Plus FoC was just released at most stores so they wouldn't have that info yet anyway

    I got that email and totally fistpumped. Peaugh hooked me up with FOC Jazz at TFcon and I kinda wanted another one to keep on the card. Since I don't have Prime or Shockwave yet this is perfect and I don't have to bother hunting for Shockwave anymore.

    Damnit... I cancelled that preorder once I got the SDCC Bruticus. Hopefully it lingers so I can pick up a Shockwave.

    We have replaced Onslaught with another Optimus Prime.

    Actually pretty cool that BBTS switched them all over to this case assortment.

    Wow. That is incredibly collector friendly, Hasbro. And major kudos to BBTS for switching all the preorders!

    If I didn't already own a Shockwave and Jazz, and I didn't have my G2 Bruticus on preorder I would have totally jumped on the case to avoid hunting.

    Definitely good news. It would have been very short-sighted of Hasbro to only include Shockwave in wave 1 (and packed less than the other characters). Have we heard of any sightings of FOC figures in Walmart stores (in the U.S.) at all? I wouldn't be surprised if they jumped right to this wave and skipped wave 1 altogether for most stores.
