    This isn't really news thread worthy. It's no surprise that BBTS would get pre-orders up for all of the major retail releases. It's not really even news when anything shows up for pre-order unless it's something we've never seen before elsewhere.

    I think the (relatively) news-worthy parts are the November release date and that they are apparenty mixed in with a case assortment of older toys.

    (sigh, nothing but repaints starting out... except Ratbat I guess. :)  )

    I dont think its mixed in with older toys. looks like they're trying to bait people into buying older stock (or at least a jazz repaint that most won't want) just to get soundwave.

    because it's BBTS. their prices suck. its just the way things are.

    If it's mass-retail, I think I'll wait for Hasbrotoyshop to put up preorders instead.

    VERY good news, though!

    In my case this is a bit *cheap*. Still the price could be way better yes, but when you live in the Nordics you can only love deluxe figures for 18$.
    Right now we're paying 34$ for a single one...

    Considering November is when 2009 wave 1 came out last year, this isn't surprising. I assume we'll see the Blackout/Thundercracker wave around Christmas.

    What IS surprising is the case assortment. It looks like they're stretching the last Animated toys out to 3-4 waves.

    This is very news worthy.
    It's the first pre-order and it's the closest thing to
    'official' word that animated toys are still coming.
    Still, mixing in a new mold with the recolors would have been better.

    There has been plenty of official word about it all over the place, not to mention galleries of figures.

    Was it news when BBTS put up pre-orders for ROTF figures?

    I'd spring for an E-Wave/Ratbat preorder by itself. Ah well.

    You don't need to bust balls, this is the 1st we've heard of an actual "date" opposed to Q1 2010 type of thing

    Bear in mind that before this, Wave 7 was supposed to contain Arcee and Electrostatic Soundwave. The real news here is that the updated Wave 7 has been revealed for the first time.

    How about we just let the moderators decide what's news?

    Regardless, official word of upcoming Animated releases is great news for those looking forward to them.
