    I found these dates on robotkingdom.com regarding the release dates of wave 8 & wave 9. I know there was hope that they would be released today and since they were that it would be after Black Friday. Not that I know much about release dates, but it doesn't make sense that they would be released here earlier than they would in Japan. Here are the dates.

    Depending on how much stock is left at stores, you will likely start seeing 2010 assortments (Bludgeon, Nest stuff, etc) start hitting before Christmas IN SOME AREAS.

    But but I've never seen the U.S. get releases before Japan, so how does that make any sense?

    Actually, the ONLY Japanese release that came out before the US one in recent years is Henkei Ratchet and Legends ROTF Devastator. Everything else, the US release came a few months before hand.

    Recon Ironhide and Bludgeon in particular will begin showing up in the next few weeks.

    You... did pay attention to Japanese releases in recent years? Pretty much ALL movie-related toys came out in the US first.

    You probably have some old Cybertron-era release patterns stuck in your head. ;)

    I thought something was supposed to be released today as there had been some reports of cases on pallets with a release date for today, 11/11. Not that it matters.

    Must have been a fluke. Some say they might show up during the holiday sales, though. I'll keep my eyes peeled on Black Friday.
