    Hi guys, just wondering if the Ultimate Prime will be released together with the first wave or will he only be coming out later on in the line? I've tried looking up various sites for information regarding him, but I can't seem to chance upon any. I hope some other collectors out there can help me out with this. Thanks a ton!

    Note: I'm not a big fan of the figure, but I'm just feeling more than obliged to buy him because he's Optimus.

    Edit: Found my answer, thanks again guys. :D

    July/August is the time frame when the "big ticket" Transformer of the year hits shelves every year. (Sometimes a bit early in June or a bit late in September... like when Armada Prime was delayed a bit)

    2011: Ultimate Optimus Prime
    2010: Leader Starscream
    2009: Devastator
    2008: Supreme Animated Optimus Prime
    2007: 1st Movie Leader Optimus Prime & Megatron
    2006: Cybertron Primus
    2005: Supreme Starscream
    2004: Energon Omega Supreme
    2003: Armada Unicron
    2002: Armada Optimus Prime
    2001: RID Optimus Prime & Ultra Magnus

    1996: BW Optimus Prime & Megatron

    It's pretty true of other toylines too. Gotta have it sitting on store shelves a little bit of time before Christmas shopping season to make kids want it and beg their parents for it.
