So can anyone tell me what wave is each Tf animated toy is in?
Nope we really only know the first wavge and it's coming out in June.
Cybertron Mode Optimus Prime
That Battle Pack that has the deluxe Earth Mode Prime and Deluxe Cybertron Mode Megatron
Cybertron Mode Megatron
I think the Leader Class Bulkhead and Megatron migh be in the first wave but I'm not sure.
We now know that both Leader Class Bulkhead and Megatron are being saved for an August release, so technically they aren't a part of the first wave. Good news for me, as that'll give me more time to save up for them. As it is I could get all the figures I plan to get from the first wave with the money that I've currently saved up, so I should be set when they finally do hit in June.
Well, to the best of my knowledge, Wave 1 is:
Optimus Prime Cybertron Mode
Megatron Cybertron Mode
2-pack: Optimus and Megatron (cybertron modes)
Optimus Prime (Earth Mode)
Megatron (Earth Mode)
Bulkhead (with Headmaster)
Roll-out Command Optimus Prime
That's my best guess based on the figures we've seen so far.
i'm assuming ratchet will be out before soundwave and oilslick, though. he better be lol.
Where's Blitzwing and lugnut.
Are all of these figures theoretically coming out in 2008?
I'm unashamedly bumping this.
It's been a REALLY long time since I've purchased from a TF 'main' line. Will the figures listed above be released in 08 (as far as we know) or are some of these going to drift to 09?
I really wish I could just get it over with and buy them today.
I must have Prime, Soundwave, Megs and Screamer just must. But for now I will pratically take w/e they throw at us and w/e I can get my hands on.
Everything Hasbro showed at toyfair will be out before the end of this year.
First batch of stuff is in June, then the next in August, the latest release given for anything was simply "fall".
Well according to those numbers we got a while back there should be 5 deluxes and 3 voyagers beyond everything we have seen released in 08 though its possible those numbers were from before the lines pushback.
I think those numbers were from a pre-toyfair press piece that pre-dated the show by about a month so they'd be pretty accurate to go on for the first year of the line.
Thanks for the info Fort Max
Hmmmm...any thoughts on why Grimlock wasn't shown at TF? Are he and Slag not coming out this year then? Probably same with Blitzwing and Lugnut I guess...
I always find it odd when shows wait to release figs of characters that show up really early in the show. Also strange to see a character that we'd never see before (Oil Slick) get released earlier than some ofThank the very first characters on the show...
Hasbro just wanted to push the deluxes to reatilers more I think, or they didn't have the space on the show floor.
Whatever the case there, all the Voyagers you mentioned should be out this year. We'll know more after Botcon certainly.
As far as we know they arnt making a Blitzwing yet. They are going to but by the looks of it they havent even prototyped him yet.
It was last summer when they showed us the line art at Botcon/SDCC and that was defintely toy design sketches. They've probably at least finished a prototype by now. I imagine he'll be in the case at Botcon or on the slides again at the very least.
Edit: I thought I'd better dig up the pic to make sure I was remembering it correctly
