    Just wondering if anyone has an ETA on the new Titaniums yet: WW Grimlock, WW Prowl, WW Skywarp, etc.

    We usually got a sneak peak of the next upcoming wave up until the release of WW Sunstorm & WW Magnus, then things just went silent and have remained so for what seems longer than usual. No pre-orders offered yet, no pics of the new designs... nada.

    I know everyone's buzzing about the BotCon exclusives, the latest & upcoming Masterpieces, and the movie toys now that they're just around the corner, but I don't want our Titanium buddies to get lost in the shuffle :) 

    So yeah, if anyone has a rough idea when the next batch is supposed to come out, spill it.

    No one knows.

    There's a reason everything went silent though. The movie is the focus for the next several months. We might possibly see test shots at Botcon, but that's a maybe.

    I kinda think it's bull****. First we heard early April, then Mid-April, and then late April. Well, April has come and gone and spent more money on gas than I have on Transformers! :thumbdown

    Well the G1 Ultra Magnus has been on the toy shelf in my room for over 3 weeks now, that's the only one I have any clue about :D

    Far as I know, we don't know whether Prowl will be G1 or WW.

    I'd say Botcon is the likeliest place we'll see the next batch of Tits.

    Meanwhile, I'm still waiting for the Fallen and Cheetor to be start turning up in stores.

    First Megatron, Magnus, Cheetor, Fallen, WWI Magnus, and Sunstorm have to hit stores before the later waves can.

    I bought them all. They're stockpiled in a locker 30 miles west of Boulder, Colorado. Only Llamatron and Jux have the keys, which poses an interesting challenge, since one lives in Australia and the other isn't too big of a Transformers fan.

    Which makes me all the more angry I can't go to Botcon...

    Oh, wait...you're talking about the Titaniums...:D 

    (Sorry, I can't help it. I wish somebody would come up with a better nickname for those things).

    6 inchers are three waves ahead of US retail online, I figure we'll see more of them in stores when the movie comes along though, and hopefully some new ones.
    I'm curious as to what happened to 3" Sunstreaker, Cliffjumper, Nemesis Prime and Soundwave. The Autobots were due out in January and the Decepticons were due out last month, and still no sign of them other than that all 3 of them (save Nemesis Prime) are on Hasbro's site, but not in their store. I'm still hoping they'll ship after the movie Titaniums do.

    I'm pretty sure since Hasbro's stated that most of the other TF stuff is gonna wait till after the movie has done its thing, the other Titaniums probably won't show up until that time.

    Only online.

    Regular stores are still only up to the RiD Prime/Starscream wave.

    Is Magnus coming out to stores, or he is only online exclusive?

    I'm still finding them at Wal-Mart and TRU, although Wal-Mart is the only one of the two that has the most recent figures. TRU just has a bunch of Tit Soundwaves piled up in the reissue Soundwave slot. :rolleyes2

    Yeah, Starscream, Rodimus Prime, and RID Prime are all stacked on top of each other at the TRU in Times Square. It's funny. The first time (since I was 7) I went to look at what transformers they carried I was excited for about two seconds when I saw those... then after looking at them for about 5 minutes I remember wincing and thinking "these suck!"
