    According to BBTS wave 3 will include Rally Rumble Bumblebee and Rally Rumble Optimus Prime. No pics but due out in November.

    I know it's an even more kid-targeted subline, but no new molds or characters already in the third wave? I was hoping for Ratchet.

    I want more Decepticon ones. Even if you're not a fan of the new Activators, Starscream just looks too hilarious NOT to buy. It's like he's a caricature of himself. I imagine it would be the same with most other Decepticons.

    Although I got the first HFTD Activators Bee, I might pass on this one. Have to see it in person first to decide. I like Activators, but IMO, TFA Activators Bee is better in terms of proportion...

    Typically they do, but they sure haven't been moving around here lately.

    If you rub his nose, he'll never leave you.

    But yes, more 'Cons, too! Especially Barricade.

    Surely they're not going to stop at five molds...

    Three Autobots and two Decepticons? That's it? Come on Hasbro.

    You're assuming this is all. Give them time. Especially considering TF3 is next summer. And a TF3 Activator listing was found.

    Wow, those are almost G2-ish. I kinda like.

    Well, that's a weird result you're after, then...

    *watches as an endless line of sick people line up outside TranstechCat's door*

    Yeah, they are. I'll probably finally bite on Bumblebee for that deco.

    No... this is keeping Activators on the shelves during a time they are not ready to release new molds. They'll most likely plan for wave three having less sales than other waves.


    Anyway, I'm not interested in any of these movie Activators. If I were though, I would go for the wave three repaints over the wave one originals.

    Kind of a Star Convoy meets First Strike Prime and a redux of the Rally Rocket FAB Bee? I think I'll wait for a Starscream repaint.

    These things are a bit of a puzzle to me, Starscream is a more accurate Deluxe than The Fast Action Battler one was so he's a good buy and yet Optimus and Bumblebee are rather chibbi and cutesified and clearly aimed to attract youngsters.

    I Worry a little that these are not just slightly younger aimed Action Figures like the FAB's are/were. they might be the sole example of say under 5's/7's toys and as such my wish that the listing of Movie 3 Gobots means (Playskool Transformers) could be dashed.

    I'd be 'sad-face' if they decided to make Activators as the sole young kids toys (maybe with some Bumber-Battler/Cyberslammer type stuff as well .

    Because I'd rather that the Activators were slightly less chibi and then proper equivalents to Playskool Transformers were made instead.
