    Well, I have a friend in Singapore on another site, and he tells me one of his stores is listing a DOTM Mirage (IN DELUXE) for release. And that Prime Deluxe Wave 4 is out there, and that he saw a PRID Voyager Dreadwing at his local store... so yeah.

    That is interesting. But likely to be a mistake. Hasbro have confirmed that they're not doing Mirage/Dino because they couldn't get permission from Ferarri to use the alt mode. But if you think about it, they could release a deluxe figure using the ROTF Sideways mold, like what they did with the leagends version. And if they did, and made an accurate head mold, i'd definitely buy him.

    The dotm line didn't get stopped in asia markets, so i guess mirage is possible.
    Maybe as an asian exclusive.
    Wv4 dxs are available & shipping from robotkingdom, so singapore stores are possible.
    See if your friend could get a pic or 2 of the dreadwing.
    We haven't seen much on him at all.

    I'm sure this has been asked before, but why did they use a car in the move before they had the rights to make the toy? That's just dumb.

    Guess they couldn't stop Bay and crew from using the car.

    Yeah that would be cool.

    I asked him to. He said "My phone isn't compatible with my computer" so I assume he doesn't have a camera and he can't upload pictures.
    But he could mean he doesn't want to take his camera in the store. He said he doesn't have Dreadwing yet, but he will.

    Yeah, I say ask him to send pictures and see what the story is. But there are some possible mistakes that could've been made;

    • The Mirage deluxe could possibly be that knock off toy that was released a while ago. The one that made several threads across the boards when it was inititally discovered.
    • It's also possible that he's mistaking the voyager for Cyber-Verse Commander. Or, maybe the wave three voyagers are slowly being released into Asia now.
    • Wave four deluxes are now beginning to make their way to the States. It's safe to assume they're being released in Asia too now.

    A listing is nothing until we see it in the fle... plastic, and *I* was told Dreadwing is a little while off yet.

    It's a well known fact that Wave 4 is out in Asia.




    Not a proper Mirage. Mattel and Ferrari still have plenty of reach in Asia.

    Wow, just wow!

    I'm from Singapore & I didn't know about all these!

    Did he shared about those Leader Class Gaia Unicrons that were on clearance last weekend?

    One of my "friends" told me that also.

    Edit: As much as he wanted, my "friend" couldn't take a picture. Reason being "His phone is so advanced that no computer on Earth could ever synchronize with it." :drunk

    People will want evidence from you friend. If he can upload photos of said items then people might be more persuaded to believe him. At least when it comes to Mirage and Dreadwing.

    Though I hate "rules of the Internet," "pics or it didn't happen" seems applicable here.

    It'd be nice if we had a little more evidence to go off of. Unfortunately this just seems like the rumor mill working overtime. Try to get some more info out of him.

    Okay, all I know right now is he can't wait to get Voyager Dreadwing. He insisted it was Voyager.
    Mirage has no pics, he just said his store lists it as an upcoming release.
    And I don't know if he CAN take pics... when I asked for pics he said "My phone isn't compatible with my computer", but he also said he doesn't have Dreadwing in-hand, so maybe he was just referring to not being able to bring his camera into the store.

    Either way, the point was just to get this out, you don't have to be all "PICS OR IT DIDN'T HAPPEN!!". Because there ARE no pics.
    I'll try to see if he can get pics when he HAS Dreadwing.

    I told him that but he came up with several reasons why it couldn't be a bootleg... although I still think it may be a bootleg.
    He also demonstrated that he knows the difference between Cyberverse and Voyager.
    He also said that he got Deadend and Airachnid.
