    Toys r us is about to get a massive restock of voyagers and deluxes, so I'd expect wave 2 to see wide release over the next week or two.

    Hey I'm new here :)  Has anyone spotted any of the Wave 2 premiere edition toys in Illinois (more specifically Voyager Megatron and Deluxe Steelbane)? I asked hasbro CS when they would be coming to that location and they said that they said "summer 2017" (wow really helpful guys). What I'm trying to say is I'm kind of confused about when everything is coming out. Thanks :)

    There has been exactly one reported sighting of the wave 2 Deluxes and zero reported sightings of the wave 2 Voyagers at US retail.

    They can't answer becuase they don't know. They show up whenever the stores receive them and decide to put them on the shelf.

    Wave 2 Deluxes are starting to see wide distribution at Canadian retail so the US can't be far off.

    TLK Wave 2 Voyager class and Deluxe class have been sighted on Hasbro Toy Shop, though currently Voyager class Megatron and Hound are out of stock.

    Still not happy about the fact that I have not seen anything Wave Two related out in stores in the United States. However, I did see some release dates in Japan for stuff around the 15th and on wards. Anyone know if the United States is the same days or Not?

    Unlike Japan, there are no "street dates" for new toy releases on Hasbro's end in the US barring a few exceptions, such as the big launch of the TLK line.

    Hasbro themselves said about the new product that there is no set date - they ship it out, retailers receive and stock it whenever they feel like it.

    For those having trouble finding the wave 2 Deluxes at US retail, I'd like to point out that there have apparently been only two (!) confirmed sightings since May (!), namely Sqweeks and Steelbane at a Target store in Virginia in May, and Drift, Slug and Sqweeks at a Fred Meyer store in Oregon in June.

    I don't mean to start up a dead thread, but why in the world is there like no TLK toys coming out? I just want Drift alreaaadddyyyy ugh! :( 

    I remember back in ROTF and DOTM days where every main character, plus others were out before the movie. Anybody remember when the toys would spoil split points?! Huh. I am in California by the way. Just found Infurnocus at my TRU, but no wave 2. Bet I will find Hot Rod before wave 2 deluxe.

    I'd go ahead and order online if I were you. Voyager wave 3 has started showing up around these parts.

    I call BS on this supposed Virginia sighting of Wave 2 deluxes. As far as I know, there have been ZERO sightings of any Wave 2 deluxes in the US. I know that they are available in Canada, but they have yet to be put on shelves here in the US. I find it hard to believe that one store in Virginia stocked Wave 2 just one time in the last 3 months. As far as voyagers go, I found Megatron and Hound once back in July at a Target in MD, and just recently picked up Scorn and Nitro from a Walmart in MD. All of the stores, at least in my area, don't seem to be carrying anymore deluxes from the TLK line other than Wave 1, and considering how bad the movie did, I doubt they are placing orders to stock the shelves full of them since the Wave 1 assortments have barely sold.

    There were pictures of the sighting and it seemed like wave 2 would be due to pop up back then (oh, if we only knew). I now think this was some return shenanigans, like someone bought a set/case and returned the unwanted figures to Target.

    Now that seems more likely of a scenario.

    There's one problem with this scenario:

    When these figures were first sighted at Target, they hadn't come out anywhere else yet. No reported release in Asia, no online retailer in-stock listing, nada. The Target sighting was the first reported worldwide sighting of this wave.

    For them to have been a return, they must have been purchased from somewhere before they could be returned.
