    There's a rumor on Seibertron.com that the actual street release date for the deluxe Mirage and Wheeljack is in early 2012; it also brings promise that we'll get our first images at the SDCC.

    http://www.seibertron.com/transform...dark-of-the-moon-deluxe-class-releases/22357/


    What other figures do you think will be released with this wave?

    DA-28 DX Optimus is available on BBTS for later 2011 shipping and delivery, and Ultimate Prime is showing up on shelves.


    My guess is that this first wave of the new year will at least include:

    Legends/Cyberverse: Four repaints/new molds of characters.
    Deluxe: Soundwave, Leadfoot, Mirage, Wheeljack.
    Voyager: Two repaints, two new Decepticon molds (hopefully some of the Dreads or genericons).
    Leader: Sentinel Prime repaint, one new mold. (possibly...hopefully Megatron).
    Human Alliance: Soundwave, new Autobot mold.


    What do you all think we will get in this wave?

    Please feel free to comment and speculate what you either hope for or realistically think will occur (maybe they're one in the same) below.

    Clarification:

    Thread title is USA 2012 Dark of the Moon Releases.

    SDCC is a Hasbro gig. Not Takara.

    DA-28 is a Takara release. Not a domestic US release toy.

    Until Hasbro say otherwise, U.S. equivalent remains uncertain.

    Good catch and my mistake. Maybe the other leader could be the Hasbro equivalent of DA-28.


    EDIT: :lolol  at your sig Jackhammer

    If it comes with the Buster Prime figure, gas-can gun, swords, and paint job as well as the new gun I'd shell out the funds

    Exactly. I hope these all hit shelves before summer gets out even though that is a long shot.

    in fairness to you, most of us know the difference, but new movie equals new people on the board, and we all come in from the cold somewhere so...


    DA-28 is more like $120-130

    I bet they hit around Christmas time, probably Nov. sometime, which is around the time of the dvd release.

    Well, the TF Prime toy line is slated to come out in November/December.

    That would make more sense. And if they release them before Christmas along with the Prime toys, Hasbro will rake in some serious dough.

    Sounds strangely long for all of them. Don't think it can be true.
