    Hi guys . I've been out of the loop a good while now, and havent gotten a chance to keep up with anything TFs related. I LOVED the classics/universe line. Can anyone tell me why im no longer seeing them in the stores? I mean...besides repaints , its been months since Ive seen anything new. Has it been discontinued? If they are coming outy with more .. who and when? Thx fellas.

    Well the first Classics line came out in 2006 and ended in early 2007 due to the movie franchise.

    Universe Classics 2.0 came out in mid 2008 and ended in early 2009 due to the second movie.

    We will be seeing a return to the Classics series via Generations that will be come out later this year (Scheduled for August, but we might possibly see them released just a bit sooner)

    The continuation of classics is being released later this year as Transformers Generations, but the line pretty much ended when ROTF came into play. I have seen some of the deluxes for U/C 2.0 for ridiculous prices at drug stores like CVS or Walgreens. Best of luck to ya.

    If you're a fan of just the "Classics" aesthetic. I've put together a list HERE of all of the new molds from Classics, Universe 2.0, Generations, Henkei, and their repaints from Botcon, TFTM/ROTF to help you get up to speed to see if you've missed anything. List also include third party accessories that go with the "Classics" line.

    Wave 1 consists of Drift, Thrust (henkei version of the mold), and the War For Cybertron versions of Prime and Bumblebee.

    Wave 2 consists of Darkmount (Straxus homage), Red Alert (Sideswipe redeco), and the War for Cybertron versions of Megatron and Soundwave.

    The only other figure we know about is Blurr, which is a retool of Drift.

    They are also available for pre-order individually. All except Drift that is, his pre-order is sold out, for now.

    This isn't entirely accurate. TFTM's release date was changed from Christmas '06 to summer '07. Classics was filler line created for the void that left. Universe 2 was the same thing. The filler line between TFTM and ROTF.

    Well, it hasn't officially been announced. BBTS put that page up earlier than they intended to

    Red Alert and WFC Soudnwave are wave 3. If you read the listings for them they are series (IE wave) 3.

    The problem with that is that the BBTS listing lists WfC Megatron and Darkmount as Wave 3 as well.

    So either, Wave 2 is skipped over entirely, Red Alert and Soundwave are the only releases of Wave 3 while Megatron and Darkmount are the only releases of Wave 2, or all four of them are actually Wave 2.

    Also, BBTS has all of these Generations dates listed as due by August... we're not going to have to wait that long, are we? I was under the impression that wave 1 would be out in the same window as WFC.
