    It's the Entertainment Pack, Megatron's a deluxe like Optimus.

    Ugh. Bumblebee isn't even a major character in this show and he's clogging up cases. November? Any specific date? That's a month ahead of the date they told us :) 
    Also, Bulkhead is one per case? I will have Bulkhead. His transformation is amazing. DAT ENGINEERING.

    Yeah, so having him in every episode and giving him his own stories doesn't make him a major character? :inquisiti 

    Also, if you haven't noticed, Bumblebee has become Hasbros little whore...erm cash cow.

    What he said :p  and also, I got it from my HK supplier

    Ya, I guess this is kinda expected dickmove from hasbro imo :p 

    bee is still cash cow no matter what he did in any timeline now :p 

    and also, supplier delivery date is 1st week of november, since they're based in HK, any part of the world would get it a bit later

    inb4 everyone has trouble finding Bulkhead. And I lol'd at how they're still packing more Bumblebees like DOTM. Damn the movie for making Bumblebee such a popular character.

    I guess I'll buy Bulkhead on site since he may be hard to find later. I got lucky with Dotm Shockwave. Maybe I'll get lucky again

    He is a main character, but not a lot of focus is put on him. The only episodes that have really been about Bumblebee are Sick Mind, Out of his Head, Masters and Students, and to an extent Speed Metal and episode 23. Characters like Arcee and Bulkhead though are hogging the spotlight. Arcee alone has been the focus of the a good portion of the Darkness Rising miniseries, Predatory, Crisscross, Metal Attraction, Partners, and a good part in Speed Metal and Rock Bottom. Plus she's appeared in every single episode, a feat that not even Bumblebee has pulled off. Based on that you'd think they'd make the case assortments a little more Bulkhead and Arcee centric. And I did notice bumblebee's the cash cow, which is why I complained about the trend carrying over from the movies :lol  . The only problem is that Bumblebees are becoming the new shelfwarmer for DOTM according to a good number of members here and even some employees at stores I go to, and I can attest to that since every single store within 50 miles of me has at least 10-20 Bumblebees that have been on the shelves for at least a month. Except Kmart. But they didn't have many DOTM toys to begin with :p . I think parents are finally catching on that they already got their kids a Bumblebee from the previous movies, so they think their kids don't need another one, even though the transformation is completely different. Which could in turn lead to Prime Bumblebee shelfwarming. We'll see though, November is far from now. Which is bad because DEM TOYS are amazin'.

    Is there a thread anywhere showing pics of all the Prime toys already announced?
    I'm going to be buying at least one toy of each character, and I favour the Deluxe size class, however, I've heard that the voyager Starscream is a far superior mould, so should I hold out for that?

    If Bulkhead is one-per-case I can foresee him being moderately difficult to get ahold of for the first weeks of release. D: Not a case where I'd mind being wrong though!

    We've only seen a prototype of the Voyager. Looks decent,but I prefer the deluxe,mainly for scale purposes

    I don't think that there has been many pictures of the later releases, but these are the ones that are in Wave 1:

    Awesome, thanks for that. I thought i'd pick up the entertainment pack, but that OP is waay inferior to the voyager, so looks like i'm ponying up for that.
    Bee and Arcee are bought on sight though. I guess we'll see more pics before the release date.
    November is going to be an expensive month in this household.

    Even with Bulkhead being so short packed, I reckon I'll still be able to find him pretty easy when he hits retail in Australia.
