    At Botcon Hasbro stated that they will reveal or release all the new waves for Transformers Dark Of The Moon so when do you think they will release pics or something?

    Did Hasbro ever say that, or did fans speculate that?

    They only said they'd reveal Deluxe wave 6 and HA wave 3 after the movie. They never specified how long afterwards

    Technically, anytime between now and the end of time is "after the movie is out"...

    SDCC is a bigger event with much more media coverage anyway. Expect something there, if anything.

    Bingo.

    If anything, online etailers might have had an embargo on figure listings until the movie's release (like how they couldn't reveal case assortments and contents a month ahead of the movie, even though they probably had the info)

    But good god people, I still haven't gotten wave 3 here yet. How about we let everyone catch up a bit before harking about waves 5 and on.

    Just wait until SDCC. We're sure to find out about all the new DOTM toys then.

    what other toys do you think we can expect? I know for the 1st two movies it seems like they made toys for the most random of vehicles just seen in the movies...Sector 7 SUV and The Wrecker that carries bubblebee both got figures from the 1st movie, I sure hope we get that Garbage truck/Long Haul from DOTM and there was the monkey looking drone that was awesome looking in DOTM...just saw a robot mode, but it was huge and would be a cool looking toy imo. Here's hopin' for leader Megs as well.

    Soundwave, Dino and Que. Plus any new HA molds, and I'm done. I really want to see them now.

    Half of me had been hoing for a "Meet the new autobots!" or something thing on the Hasbro website during premier night, showing all the new toys.

    Ah well.

    I'd put money on it having Soundwave, Mirage, and Wheeljack.

    Anybody else wondering what they're gonna do for Crowbar? I'd be fine with them retooling Crankcase.

    Does anyone who ask this question remember SDCC? Anyone? If ANYTHING is going to be shown after the movie, it's going to be at a big ticket show like SDCC. Hold your horses, people.

    Eh. Three weeks till the new waves are announced is bad marketting. Waves 1 and 2 are going to saturate and then we'll have a repeat of RoTF. Stalker Scorpinoks everywhere. And nothing new.

    Bad marketing?

    Waves 1 and 2 have saturated in time for the movie's release. Then you give it a couple weeks for the casual consumer to have seen the movie (weekend outing, Friday night, 4th of July weekend, etc.) and then new waves of product comes out. In time for Transformers to still be on people's minds with the toyline while the next big movie hits theatres (Captain America).
