    This ain't no poll,but how many of yall think the Classics will be out before the
    end of this month?. I sure am counting on it. Any while we're at it,where do you
    think the first sitings will be,again I am sure in Texas,more specific Dallas. So
    lets see if it happens or not. Post away all.

    I wouldn't be surprised if online stores starting getting their first deluxe/voyager shipments by the end of the month

    But I doubt stores will be getting any classics until next month at the earliest, and some may well not get the line until after Christmas

    I think the first wave (Rodimus,Astrotrain,Bumblebee,Starscream,Prime and Megs) will be out either the last week of september or first week of october. I hope September so I can space out my TF purchases a little,lol

    I hope BBTS gets them first :p

    A new target is opening here early october, I'm hoping new stuff is there since I'd like to play with that megatron gun.

    everyone in my town has reset their TF sections, and their planograms were labelled "classics" so I think I'll find things easily enough *crosses fingers*

    i'm screwed, they'll get to south america probably in november (and they haven't brought the last part of cybertron, so i'm a little worried that they might decide to skip the classics or delay them)

    if that happens i will have to pay way more money to get them in the holiday season :(

    Okay, so, here's a dumb question.... I'm a little ashamed to even ask it....

    Are there currently no Classics molds being released as "Scout" class? 'Cause.... Bumblebee's a Deluxe, right, and he's the smallest (aside from those leftover minicons, I'm not really counting those)? So, does that mean that the cheapest Classics mold will have about a $10 price point? That's generally the price Deluxes go for, right?

    That seems odd to me. I would think that the Scout class would be a real money-maker for Hasbro, since kids are more able to buy it and for adults they are so cheap that they can just be guilt-free impulse buys.

    Sorry if this has been asked before, or done to death already!

    i actually believe the new minicons were held over from Cybertron to Classics to maintain a scout/basic sized chuchk of shelf real-estate. does bum me out that we won't get any new molds in Classics @ that price point... (i.e. One new mold, not 3 minicon molds...)

    Huh! No kidding. That's too bad..... I'm not a big fan of minicons, I too would rather get one bigger mold for that price. I wonder if they determined that the scout class just wasn't selling as well, or that it occupied an unpopular middleground between deluxes and minicons. Bummer, I really like a lot of the scout molds.

    It would be great if they released a bunch of the old minibots as scout-class Classics molds. Sure, the more popular ones like Bumblebee and Cliffjumper might warrant a Deluxe mold, but I bet a lot of people could totally go for a Scout-class wave containing re-imaginings of Cosmos, Warpath, Gears, Powerglide, etc.....

    Though I wouldn't be at all surprised to see Beachcomber and Seaspray as repaints of Hardtop and Shortround. I actually kinda hope we don't, though.... I would prefer all the Classics molds to be unique to the line.

    Won't be necessary, d00d. if anyone wants Classics prime, I'll gladly trade it for every drop of blood in their body.
    Which is pretty much what would be spilled if anyone's stupid enough to try and snatch it. :)
