    Just had an exciting email from Big Bad Toy Store:

    I think this is the first place online or bricks & mortar to get these in ?

    Woot! Thanks for the heads up. I just ordered a set. Luckily i had about 9 bucks credit with them so it only cost me about 18 bucks for the set.

    I'll go to Wal-mart later and pick up wave 2 while I'm waiting for these bad boys to get to me.

    Heey, I may have to get those. I never got the remolded Energon Saber guys and I love 2/3 of the Emergency Team weapon modes. I haven't picked up wave 1-2; paint decos aren't doing it for me.

    Cool. I can't wait for these guys to hit stores. Hopefully the Wave 1 & 2 stock will clear out by then.

    When should we expect Wave 4? Because the club magazine said new Mini-Cons are coming in July.

    Hm, I'll be tempted to order them if that black RM Lio Convoy ever shows up (since I pre-ordered it from BBTS).

    I know we've not seen wave four as of yet. I thought I had read that the new molds were starting with wave four though. *shrug* I could very well be wrong.

    Sweet, I love the Star/Energon Saber team and the emergency team will look awesome with CD Hot Shot, definite pick up with these packs.

    Those Emergency repaints look like they were made specifically for CD Hotshot.

    At SDCC '05 I spoke with two separate Hasbro reps both said that new minicon molds would hit around wave 4. I passed that info to Bill from Billstoysandgames, and he then passed it on to the TFW2005 boards. So yes according to Hasbro they should start at wave 4, but if they needed more time in production I wouldnt count out an extra wave of repaints.
