    Got the finalisation of the UK case assortments today, read on! WOOP WOOP

    Deluxe Preview Figures - £12.99
    1) Soundwave x 4
    2) Bumblebee x 4

    Deluxe Wave 1 - £12.99
    1) MV2 Car x 4
    2) Sideswipe x 2
    3) Rampage x 1
    4) Breakaway x 1

    Voyager Wave 1 - £22.99
    1) Demolisher x 1
    2) Starscream x 1
    3) Ironhide x 1
    4) Optimus Prime x 1

    Leader Class Wave 1 - £44.99
    1) Optimus Prime
    2) Decepticon ?????

    Supreme Combiner - £99.99
    1) ? Devastator x 1
    2) ? Devastator x 1

    Human Alliance Wave 1 - £29.99
    1) Bumblebee and Sam x 3

    Movie Scout Wave 1 - £7.99
    1) Rollbar x 3
    2) Deadend x 3
    3) Knockout x 3
    4) Dirtboss x 3

    looking at the list you will notice the absence of any Fallen or Jetfire figures, take it with a pinch of salt but the rep with whom I did the order with today is under the impression that the supreme combiner master carton may contain a leader Class Optimus and Jetfire Combiner set, nothing to base this on as of yet but an interesting rumour.

    With regard to the lack of name for the 2nd toy in the leader class master carton I would speculate its as simple as they want to keep megs a secret or we're getting a leader class fallen fig.

    Have a good one!

    This might sound silly, but what is MV2 Car in the Deluxe case?...

    I'd assume (a little like what I've heard about the Devastator set being pushed to August) some of the items like Jetfire and the Fallen may be pushed to the second or third wave to minimize movie spoilage before it's in theaters.

    I'd guess MV2 car is either Skids or Mudflap, based on it taking up so much real estate in the case assortment.

    Likely Sideways, the Audi R8, since that was one of the names dropping in one of the Toyfair interviews - and the new official Hasbro images showcased (for the deluxe class) Rampage, Breakaway, Sideswipe and Sideways, leading me to believe that they comprise the first wave of deluxes.

    Hopefully, the other Leader class toy is Megatron - I can't wait to see what they're going to do with him in toy form! His new design is so badass.

    that MV2 car has my interest as well not so much because I want to know who it is but because their are 4 of them in one case of 8 and that strikes me as rather odd

    also that prime jet fire set sounds sweet as hell if its laget

    yeah that makes sense. I am hoping Jetfire Leader class toy is released before the rumored Megatron one.

    MV2 I am curious to what this is too.

    4 sideways vs 2 sideswipes to a case, that con must be pretty important then.
    I'm a bit peeved about there being 1 rampage, I hope he's not hard to find. :(

    Yeah all the "spoiler" stuff will be the later waves. They had to to Devs up front to get the most out of the buzz because of his price. The more secret stuff probably also got to the designers later so willo take a little longer

    Thanks kindly for the info, Red leader; in this day and age, any confirmation that figures are even coming to the UK is great news. :) 

    My guess is that MV2 Car is Sideways; they seem to be going for a 50-50 Bot/Con split with these assortments, and Decepticon car Sideways would complete that. The amount of leaked Sidewayses we've seen so far would also seem to suggest that he's a first wave toy...still, four of him per case of eight?! I starting to picture a whole lot of this fella being pushed aside on the shelves to find the one, lonely Rampage...:p 

    Oh, and the Decepticon Leader toy is Megatron. How could not be? Can't wait to see the new tank mould... :rock

    The "MV2 Car" has to be Sideways, since that was the only other packaged Deluxe shown. Strange that Sideways takes up 50% of the Deluxe case. Kind of a weak first wave, if you ask me. Last movie had Bumblebee, Barricade, Jazz, Scorponok, Wreckage, and Brawl in the first wave of Deluxes. Voyager wave Autobots are repaints. The missing Leader is probably Jetfire, whom I imagine will be packaged as a Decepticon since his Legends toy is. Interesting about the second G-Note combiner set, an Optimus + Jetfire Leader set would be cool, but not worth $100 when you could buy them seperately for less money.

    Well, here's hoping that the Prime & Jetfire figures in a possible combiner mode set aren't different molds from their regular Leader versions.

    Isn't that wave, like, released before the movie itself?

    Probably explains why most of it is non-spoiler-stuff.

    I would guess that perhaps he gets killed in the movie, or is relatively minor, so they probably want to sell as many of them as they can pre-release. Pure speculation naturally.

    I'm sure Hasbro know Sideswipe will be in heavy demand. They'll probably spread him around later waves.

    May 30th. Well, for the American release, not sure of other countries.

    The Preview Deluxe wave will be earlier, maybe by about a month.

    Agreed, first movie had way more variety. I think they're making a mistake by putting so many repaints in early waves. When they fail to sell, stores often don't seem to bother with later waves.

    Not sure what the point of a £100 Prime and Jetfire set would be when you could buy them £10 cheaper separately. Unless there's some special item or something unique about the figures themselves.

    I'm pretty worried on that front of a rerun of the first movie, where Preview toys clogged shelves for ages. Though with Bumblebee in there this time around, that ought to go a bit more smoothly. I hope.
