    Thank god they changed the case assortment. the only voyager i want from the line, so far, is Grimlock. So, hopefully, there will be enough showing up at retail for everyone to find one in the wild.

    And now my ideal Christmas haul will be:

    Wave 3 FOC deluxes
    Masterpiece Red Alert
    Voyager Grimlock x3
    Voyager Blaster

    Why is Blaster so much more expensive than Grimlock?

    Weird for the new mold in the wave to be cheaper than the remold.

    Because he's only 1 to a case where Grimlock is 3 to a case.

    He has a lot of back kibble (The whole head becomes back kibble) in robot mode and rather thin legs... if you buy it, buy it for the alt mode - the robot mode does not look like it is worth it.

    Oh and can someone please mod the tail, it is meant to be atleast double the length it currently is - at the moment it looks like a stump.

    It's very odd that BBTS still isn't even listing this.

    This shouldn't be something tough to get, but after the FE debacle, the DOTM missing toys, the animated missing toys and everything else I'd rather just have him in hand so I went ahead and ordered one.

    Probably totally unnecessary (it's awfully early in the line for those kind of distribution issues), but better safe than sorry.

    Where I live (Ontario-o-o-o-o)

    Both my Toysrus/Wallmarts of the area are closer to Bazaars than stores, and I have long since understood that new releases being released a few months, or not at all have become the norm. As such I am more than happy to order it from RK, and I have had nothing but great service them them in the past.

    I'm holding off on Grimlock for now, but if Hasbro/Takara makes the other 4 Dinobots in 2013 for the Generations line, then I am all in!

    I hope so. Several stores in my area seem to have given up on the Voyager class.

    That...sounds like a Grimlock to me.

    I think the robot mode is nicer on this figure/design myself. :)

    How much longer was it that BBTS put their soundwave preorders up after Robot Kingdom? Does anyone know?

    Was there any Grimlock toy that handled the alt mode's head well? In other words are there any toys that didn't resort to just having the head hang back there as kibble?

    Classics had it as an extremely doofy pair of shoes. Your opinion may vary on whether that counts as 'well'.
