    I was searching for upcoming pre-orders and was at Urban-Collector.com and found a pre-order for a Deluxe assortment pack to be released in July. Looks like a Wheeljack repaint with a G2 vibe.[​IMG]

    That would be Dead End-- we've known about him for a little while now.

    If you read the entry, you'll see that Bumblebee is indeed part of this assortment.. He just isn't pictured.

    It could be the black one though...

    Also, no sign of Hot Shot or... Vehicon...

    BB is pictured.
    Just not in the dx listing.
    The black BB re-color is shown in the legion entry.
    Which, by the way, has legion wheeljack & legion bb re-color.

    Actually, there's a predominately black with some yellow Bumblebee repaint called Shadow Strike Bumblebee in Wave 4.

    Sorry about that. Been busy and catching bits and pieces as I go. Just hoping BBTS gets the pre-order 3 pack out by April 30

    I like that. It reminds me of Darksteel, Quickstrike's more successful cousin.

    Definitely not Dead End. It just needs to be renamed. I'll buy it maybe for the rest not for the head though. shelf warmer. A definite one.

    The lack of Vehicons in this assortment is extremely depressing. Why is Cliffjumper in there?!

    Well, Prime Breakdown isn't exactly a spitting image of his original either. Plus, I'm repurposing this.

    At least Breakdown looks cool. This one's a repaint and clearly Hasbro didn't think about this one long enough.

    Nice to see they're repacking SW.

    And yes, that repaint looks horrid.

    July? Is this Wave 4? Or is it some sort of non-standard-retail revision case that's released after the fact?

    Aside from that, i want Dead End so little, i would almost pay over the odds just to get Airachnid rather than going to the trouble of offloading the other one.
