    Only two new figures in the wave? Oh well. At least the other figures are being repacked, so they'll be easier to find.

    yes. Along with more Bees. You can certainly find those if you missed it on wave 1.

    nice, but I don't think I'm gonna pre-order Ratchet, just gonna wait.

    Now when FOC pre-orders go up I'll be ALL over those!

    And they are still popping 3 Bumblebee's in a box...

    Fantastic. Looking forward to seeing the current 15 Prime BB's warming pegs at the local TRU to grow into a much larger group.

    Someone needs to ask Hasbro while at Botcon why they still feel the need to have so many Bees in the cases. This isn't the movie line and Bee isn't nearly as overused in TF Prime so why is he still EVERYWHERE?!?

    Ratchet Ratchet you will be mine... after I see what the Takara version looks like. The silly prices are probably because they're both short-packed and the only new things in the wave, so they will be in high demand. :(  Meanwhile at least BBTS employees can swim in a sea of Bees.

    I'm taking a chance and preordering the Takara Ratchet with hopes of a better paint job.

    If not...well, hell, I might as well just get the Takara version anyway just because of the Micron.

    damn. 3 bees per case? wtf?

    I would be more forgiving of a case assortment that had 2 bees if it also had 2 arcees or 2 wheeljacks or god forbid 2 soundwaves.

    and we are still getting hot shot down the road too. I wonder how much more they are going to milk the BB deluxe mold, or just BB. He's getting a "weaponizer" too you know.

    That's quite the case assortment they've got there. Short packing every toy except BB.

    What really kills me is this, I've heard from people who actually watch the show that BB isn't really the main character.

    If this is how Hasbro is handling this line, can we safely assume the line will be dead on shelves by August?

    I'm keeping an eye open for Arcee, but I certainly won't pay that much for her.

    Don't blame BBTS for making Arcee and Ratchet $22... Blame Hasbro for forcing BBTS to make up for the three BBs per case that no one will buy. Hasbro needs to SERIOUSLY rethink how they're doing assortments. Sure, you can go heavy on 'Bee, but not this heavy.

    I think people at BotCon need to call them out on this.
