    DOTM line is over. It's apparent Hasbro Europe aren't going anywhere near the Movie Allstar line.

    So if you're expecting to find them at standard UK retail, you're probably SOL.

    Japan already had them.

    We'll find out next week if the US is ever getting them. (or we'll just get more vague Hasbro answers that tell us nothing)

    No sign of them for me in Minnesota :(  I'm also waiting for the HA Soundwave and a few of the basics. I saw HA Dragstrip and the Cyberverse Ratchet set in stores before once each but haven't since :(

    Target store listings mentioned Voyager and Deluxe movie all-star toys.

    They didn't mention HA, between that and the line's spotty history at retail....... i'm inclined to think HA Soundwave is done

    Sorry to be that Guy.

    Hasbro enacted a new policy, if you want to buy the new characters you have to buy Five Bumblebee figures or 5 Shelf-warmers per character.
    No Exceptions.

    If you really, really want these figures I think it's best to just order them online now. If you'd rather wait, consider that there's a good possibility of never seeing them in american stores. If this is confirmed buying them online will be even more expensive.

    So it's best to consider how much do you want them; I wanted HA Soundwave enough to just order him online, the rest I can stand not getting if they never arrive.

    Well i don't know about wheeljack but soundwave is upstairs in my room, got him online last week and no regrets there whatsoever!!
    but as Gilgamesh expertly put it either buy them now or risk paying horrendous prices online when sellers find out neither will see further release!

    I purchased both Soundwave and Wheeljack (Que) online last week. I was tired of hunting for them.

    I picked up the Deluxe Soundwave a few weeks ago foe $20 plus $10 shipping, which at the time I figured was worth it to get him early. Of course, with the FE stuff canceled it makes me glad I did cause you never know if or when it'll show up at retail.
