    That's a welcome sight to read. Although interestingly enough no sign of the Leader class repaints...

    I'd expect the Optimus Prime that's shipping with Brawl in November to be Nightwatch Optimus. What I find interesting is Hasbro backtracking so much to produce the first wave figures over again, so at least they're going to try and meet demand. Good to see 08 Bumblebee in most of those assortments as well, quantity stops scalping.

    On the other hand, I can see Hasbro wants the movie decos out this fall for the holiday and DVD push, not repaints that weren't in the movie. I'd expect Night Watch Prime, Desert deco Brawl et al to be released in December or January.

    Mine either. Yesterday I was at a store who's Transformers section consisted solely of an end cap full of Prime helmets and Cyber Slammers at the end of the pink isle.

    Oof. No leader-class Megatrons in there?

    I noticed that too, yet the description implies a triple changer robot/jet/tank, suggesting its a misprint and Megatron will show up again. He has to.

    And I'm glad to be right again, we're going to drown in '08 Bumblebees. Alt Tracks all over again folks. I have mine so I'm set. I want to see some Allspark Power case assortments.

    Might or might not. It's going to depend on how many and when the various revision cases get ordered.

    I'd be more worried about Recon Barricade, who gets shafted in favor of the original very quickly... if I wanted the repaint, heh.

    The deluxe case assortments were posted in the califronia sighting thread, by myself in some hasbro email bitch thread and and again in the Florida sightings thread.

    I wouldn't think so. Doesn't new figure (even straight redeco) always mean new wave?

    For the most part, yes. This would especially be the case for Leader Class since there are so few. An exception to that would be Voyager Megatron who appeared in wave 2 revision 2 according to Entertainment Earth.

    So now the question is whether or not Hasbro will make enough of these. Just because Hasbro is bringing back a few old toys doesn't mean they're going to last for long on the shelves when the Christmas shopping season really revs up in November.

    Interesting to see both '70s and '08 Bumblebee in some assortments. Also interesting to see so many revisions/variations of what is basically the same wave.

    The majority of these are scheduled FOR November. Entertainment Earth is typically beaten by major retailers though. We should continue to see repaints like Recon Barricade, FB Jazz, Thundercracker and Rescue Ratchet until these Revision cases appear. Who knows after that.
