    To put two of the same-ish toy in a wave together, no, not logical.

    i could see it working out if they're both 1 per case.
    2 copies of twintwist
    2 windblades
    1 slugslinger
    1 misfire
    2 copies of a yet unrevealed deluxe

    Slugslinger's not listed as part of the Wave 5 Deluxe case assortment (Twintwist, Misfire, Windblade, Weirdwolf repack), and according to those at Australia Toy Fair Hasbro said he's in Wave 6 as well.

    If Misfire is wave 5 and Slugslinger is wave 6, why are we seeing Slugslinger's art first? I can see Misfire being too close to Windblade in color and form, which might explain a switch. Though Blurr and Scourge were both very blue robots and both were in the same wave...

    Take a close look at Octane's card. The image goes beyond the card border.

    Really liking on the artwork on these three although going a bit OCD since I cant unsee the correct "Octane" and yet it's not on the new toy. Oh well going to call it Octane anyways lol.

    Sorry, I got Misfire and Slugslinger turned around, the rumored wave 5 breakdown that was shared by user Hoffman on here that he got from a distributor was accurate to what was revealed at the toy fairs, and I believe a Hasbro rep confirmed at the Oz toy fair that Sluglsinger and Misfire were in different waves.

    Quick question for anyone who owns TR Megs: Are the wings pinned or friction pegged where they bend for tank mode?
