What come after Perceptor, Wreck-Gar, Optimus Prime, Bumblebee.
do we know yet?
It should be Generations Wheeljack and Thundercracker. Also RTS Scout class Rumble should be in the upcoming waves. You can check it out here:
As far as I can tell, Reveal the Sheild stops at wave 2. There aren't any signs of there being a third wave of any of the size classes. I'm really hoping there's at least one more wave on it's way, so they can release a red repaint of Rumble. I just have a hard time seeing it happening. Wave two is starting to show up places, so we would have certainly known about Wave 3 by now...
Yeah, that's Generations, a completely separate line from Reveal the Sheild.
Rumble and his two wavemates (the repaints) are RtS Scout class wave 2.
That list is drastically in need of updating...
when is windcharger?
He's Wave 1.
There sure was very little from Reveal the Shield. Shouldn't we at least get a wave with that Reflector redeco Hasbro was hinting at? I believe that the reason why there's so little from Reveal the Shield is because they're phasing the yellow box line into Dark of the Moon. However, I would've thought that would still be a few months away. Maybe they'll reveal something at Toyfair.
The only thing I've found is this revision wave, bringing Jazz and Tracks back:
Transformers Hunt for the Decepticons Deluxe Wave 6 Rev. 1 - HASBRO - Transformers - Transformers at Entertainment Earth
I'm sure there will be at least one more wave.
No solicitation info on RTS Delxue Wave 3
No RTS Wave 1 Voyagers spotted at retail in the US yet (?)
No US retail sighting of Windcharger yet (?)
We know Demolition Rumble is upcoming, it's been confirmed as due for a release in the UK in the forthcoming weeks, but no solicitation infomation for a US release.
Anyone get the slight feeling Hasbro are deliberately holding toys back?
If it wasn't the slowest month of the year, I would.
Deep Dive, Bodyblock, Rumble, Donwshift (Big Daddy).
Some how i think Arcee and Warpath are the next deluxe wave?
Neither are those
Walmart computer calls those Generations.
Well those were upcomming Reveal the Shield.
If Arcee are Warpath are Genertations then i think RTS will end and get Ready for the DOTM line or we see the last wave at Toy Fair.
Well since the 'Yellowbox line' phased right into RtS, there were five(?) deluxe waves. I mean we don't really count the original RoTF toy and NEST two different toylines, right?
G_13, You're forgetting about Hunt for the Decepticons, what the Yellow Box Line was called before it became Reveal the Shield.
Yeah, for the life of me I couldn't remember the original Subname of the Yellowbox line. Thanks for the help!
It's a slow time of year, from mid-November right until the first week of February, nothing usually changes at retail on the Transformers front, at least that is what I've been told by a few employers at TRU and Wal-Mart for the past two years.
IF the fandom's assumptions about generations surviving the movie onslaught in May, it's possible RTS deluxes could stop after Wreck-Gar's wave, with case revisions and Generations filling the Feb-March gap.
Or, there's one more wave that will be announced around Toy Fair.
We do seem to have one wave of voyagers and two waves of scouts outstanding.
Yea, I don't know how TRU is run these days (I think it is a private company now, or part of a larger publicly traded one, Im too lazy to check), but both Walmart and Target end their fiscal year on January 31st, so they usually like to deplete a fair amount of stock to get their inventory related numbers looking better for the street. I don't know this for certain when related to Transformers, but a lot of companies do it with their stock near the end of the fiscal year, and it always seems pretty sparce in January at these retail outlets.
^^ Yep, pretty much. My TRU JUST restocked after almost two months of bare pegs and the odd shelf warmer. I was forced to purchase WFC Soundwave and Generations Red Alert from Automaton Toys and hadn't gotten anything new until last weekend, and I purchased Soundwave and Red Alert in November!
Hopefully, with the new restock, the TF drought will be finished for another year.
