    Hey dudes sorry if this has been answered before, but I was just curious about Soundwave and Que, Im sure they are getting released but I just want to make sure that I have not missed them.....now I know that Target exclusive of the Leadfoot/Topspin 2-pack is either being cancelled or released in the trilogy series, but I was just curious about these guys because I hope to have the DOTM line complete at least some time before the toys for the 4th/reboot film roll out;)  hehe

    Until Hasbro say so, all you can be sure of is that Takara released them.

    DOTM toy line is over.

    There was some speculation they'd get shunted into the Movie All Star line...... and Target had listings on the computers for said line, with a reset date of around Feb 26th.

    But there's two problems there:

    1) We've seen preorders for All Star Prime on Robotkingdom, but nothing about any Deluxes.... which infers the line might be cut short.

    2) Repaints of Wheeljack and Soundwave were shown at NY Comic Con as being part of the Allstar line, so even if those molds are used in the Allstar line, the specific screen colors might not be.

    On top of which Hasbro's press release for Toy Fair makes little mention of movie toys.

    I guess it's not impossible that Movie Allstar toys will simply appear at Target on said reset date........ but at this point, i'm leaning towards saying movie toys are done full stop for the forseeable.

    Toys getting scrubbed at the start of the line is a new one.

    Toys getting scrubbed at the end of a line, not so new.

    It's a mix of Takara releases, Hasbro Asia releases, and toys that were stolen from the factory.

    Soundwave does exist on a Hasbro card.

    Wheelack.... i've only seen it on a Takara card with no Hasbro markings.

    Gone getcha sum! Dlx Soundwave can be purchased for $20 online. For some reason Q & Leadfoot run between $50-100. It's looking more like the best option to complete your line. Granted LF is missing Target logo.

    When ever the release date is, it's not soon enough.

    Yep I have all 3. Soundwave on a hasbro card and the others on takara. I'd buy these now before they get even more expensive. Leadfoot is sure to get a reprolabels set soon too.

    Whatever happens to the other three, i'm inclined to think HA Soundwave is done: The line has had spotty distribution since almost the start.

    Taking Windcharger as an example, it showed up at a few small independent shops in the U.S, comic stores, and Entertainment Earth and BBTS offered the case for sale.

    It was solicited for a certain time period, and Hasbro did ship them around that period, even if almost nobody stocked them, Then the excess stock filtered through to Ross.


    In the case of both Soundwaves, and Wheeljack, i don't believe any online dealer ever solicited versions sourced from Hasbro US, although at SDCC Hasbro did indicate HA Soundwave would
    get a US release circa late Nov.

    The difference i'm alluding to with these three is that that I doubt there's much, if any, stock to liquidate at discount stores in the first place.

    If anybody has ever even seen DOTM Wheeljack on a card with Hasbro markings, i'd love to hear about it. Seriously.
