    I've seen wave 4 (Rodimus/Soundwave) and wave 5 (RiD Prime/Starscream) at the Targets around here but nothing beyond that.

    I can verify the WWI Screamer and Cheetor was out.. but Also the only one that I saw besides those as a copy of RiD Prime.. seems they are restoking the shelves to get rid of back product maybe?

    There was some sparse sightings of Fallen and Cheetor in stores but nothing you'd call a mass release. If the G1 Magnus is real though, that would be a big first, and I dont even think WWI Magnus and Sunstorm made it to stores and they were a wave ahead.

    And G1 Magnus, wasn't he supposed to ship with WWI Megatron? I would love to return my unopened WWI 2-pack.

    What, I thought these were out long time ago. I found plenty of Cheetor and Fallen in my area.

    I've seen Cheetor/RID Prime/Roddy/WWI SS/WWI 2pk. I've not seen Fallen or Magnus . I did order them (Megs/Mags/Fallen)from BBTS, which I thought was a good deal.

    :)  :)  Oh good, looks like I'll need to visit Target somewhere next week. I already got one which I already opened it up. Now, if I see another Magnus, then I'll purchase it and leave it as misb. It's the closest UMagnus figure ever to release that resemble the cartoon.

    War Within Magnus (PLEASE, for the love of God, "Within" is ONE WORD!) and Sunstorm were actually the wave AFTER G1 Magnus and War Within Megatron.

    Yeah, my Rodimus has nobody to pass the middle-management, easy-to-deal-with crap work to.

    NOTE: When I list a toy as "wave 2", that means the toy DEBUTED in wave 2. Often, wave 2 toys still ship as carry-overs in wave 3 cases, wave 3 toys are carried over into wave 4 etc.

    3-Inchers:
    Wave 1 - War Within Optimus Prime, G1 Unicron, Beast Wars Megatron
    Wave 2 - Alternators Side Swipe, Alternators Autobot Jazz, G1 Starscream
    Wave 3 - Beast Wars Optimus Primal, Cybertron Megatron, "G1" Autobot Starship Ark

    NOTE: Waves 1 and 2 were delayed and were finally shipped to US retail together with wave 3 (actually, wave 3 toys were sighted first, together with carry-overs from wave 2, then wave 1 toys were found a day or two later together with wave 2 toys; and ultimately, there were also sightings of wave 1 toys only, so they had shipped as a case on their own as well).

    Wave 4 - G1 Optimus Prime, G1 Bumblebee, Alternators Smokescreen
    Wave 5 - Energon Scorponok, G1 Grimlock, G1 Predaking
    Wave 6 - G1 Rodimus (= Hot Rod), G1 Thundercracker (Starscream repaint)
    Wave 7 - G1 Galvatron, G1 Optimus Prime ("battle damage" repaint)

    Originally, other 3-Inchers were supposed to come out after this. Instead, Hasbro didn't ship anything new for a few months, and then started with movie characters, with no carry-overs from previous waves.

    Wave 8 - Movie Optimus Prime, Movie Blackout, Movie Bumblebee
    Wave 9 - Movie Ironhide, Movie Autobot Jazz, Movie Megatron

    Upcoming:
    Wave 10 - Movie Decepticon Brawl, Movie Autobot Ratchet

    Missing in action (all seen at San Diego Comic-Con 2006 and BotCon 2006):
    Original "wave 8" - G1 Cliffjumper (straight Bumblebee repaint), Alternators Sunstreaker (straight Side Swipe repaint)
    Original "wave 9" - G1 Soundwave, War Within Nemesis Prime (Optimus Prime repaint)


    6-Inchers:
    Wave 1 - War Within Optimus Prime, "Transformers/G.I. Joe" Megatron
    Wave 2 - War Within Jetfire, War Within Thundercracker
    Wave 3 - Beast Wars Optimal Optimus, G1 Scourge
    Wave 4 - G1 Rodimus Prime, G1 Soundwave
    Wave 5 - RID Optimus Prime, War Within Starscream (straight Thundercracker repaint)

    Following wave 5, distribution became shitty. Stores in Canada and even in Europe (mostly in the UK) would stock these toys, but as far as the USA were concerned, only online retailers and other specialty stores would originally offer them (until now, that is).

    Wave 6 - Beast Machines Cheetor, War Within Fallen
    Wave 7 - G1 Ultra Magnus, War Within Megatron
    Wave 8 - War Within Ultra Magnus (straight Optimus Prime repaint), War Within Sunstorm (straight Thundercracker/Starscream repaint)

    Missing in action:
    War Within Prowl - photos posted by Don Figueroa
    Primal Prime (straight Beast Wars Optimal Optimus repaint) and Soundblaster (straight G1 Soundwave repaint, reportedly to include Ravage instead of Laserbeak) - both displayed by Hasbro at BotCon 2007

    Exclusives:
    - 6 Inch Menasor (straight G1 Rodimus Prime repaint) - San Diego Comic-Con 2007/Hasbro Toy Shop exclusive
    - "Ultimate Optimus Prime 3-Pack" with 3 Inch Protoform Optimus Prime, 3 Inch Vehicle Mode Optimus Prime & 3 Inch Robot Mode Optimus Prime (the latter being a straight repackage of Movie Optimus Prime from wave 8 of the mass retail 3-Inchers) - Target exclusive
    - Optimus Prime & Bumblebee two-pack ("metallic" repaints of 3 Inch G1 Optimus Prime and 3" G1 Bumblebee) - Toys'R'Us exclusive
    - Optimus Prime vs. Megatron two-pack (straight repackages of 6 Inch War Within Optimus Prime and 6 Inch War Within Megatron) - Toys'R'Us exclusive
