    Going through my stores stock this morning I noticed a few new things.
    - Transformers Prime Deluxe As. - 7/30/11
    - Transformers Prime Voyager As. ,7/30/11
    - Transformers Prime Entertainment Pack 7/30/11
    Now my stores not always exact on release dates, but this gives us an idea on what we can expect for the launch of Prime toys.

    idk, they spefically said at botcon oct/nov

    and as far as voyagers go, the ones shown at botcon were all protos, not a single photo of a finished figure.

    could happen maybe for deluxes but voyagers i highly doubt it.

    I remember they said the preview 3 deluxes would maybe be out in July but they said the rest was for November-December. That would be quite a bit early if the whole line launches in July.

    Was there pics of Bulkhead? I can't wait to see that bad boy. I hope he can fit in with the classics toys.

    If I remember correctly, they admitted at the convention that the 7/11 place cards for the Animated toys were a mistake on their part and that the preview toys would be out around December 1st.

    Actually, the Bulkhead figure actually was floating around Botcon, but for some reason never made it into the display case.

    Honestly, I'd rather wait til Christmas to see the Prime series in full swing. If they come out now, they'll probably get lost among the DOTM toys.

    Heck, all I want is pics of the new stuff, but I'm gonna call shenanigans on a July release. I'm thinking it was just a mistake in the system.

    But, there have been way too many "mistakes" then. Hasbro at Botcon, that Malaysian listing (ok, so it said June, but close enough), and now this. There's too much pointing towards a July release...maybe they wanted to keep it a secret until SDCC, where they'll say, "They're available online at midnight, and will show up in stores in the coming weeks" or something to that effect, like they did with Kre-o at Botcon. Who knows though, that's probably just wishful thinking.

    I think it's just a mistake. They kept almost the entire Kre-O line under wraps, not just a release date. Plus, if these were coming out in July, we would have had a few leaked toys by now, or at least seen public pics of wave two at Botcon. That, coupled with the fact that the voyagers were still in the prototype stage and Starscream, a wave one toy, didn't have his packaging ready makes me think we're gonna have to wait until the projected release date. I'd be the happiest person in the world If I were wrong though.

    Like I said, it's probably just wishful thinking. It just seems a little strange that there have been so many mistakes indicating a similar release date...I really wouldn't be surprised at all if the 3 single deluxes we've seen and the entertainment pack get released before December. I agree about the Voyagers though, that had to be a mistake, no question about it.

    As it was stated by Peaugh, Bulkhead's toy was indeed at BotCon, but the decision was made not to put him in the display case.
