    Just curious, will it just be wave one?

    Or will we get wave 2 as well?

    I ask only because I remember some wave 2 figures being out on the movie toys street date. Well, at least with the voyagers I do.

    And will we see Leader Megs on 6/22?

    Just trying to figure out how much money to have ready :)

    Oh, I knew the why...I just can't figure out the "why not the rest of the country early as well, since eBay is saturated prereleases?"

    Hasbro re-releasing the first few waves didn't help. I have yet to see a Premium Deluxe at retail. I had to get Barricade and Jazz from HTS and I'm still looking for Bumblebee. I have seen the Leaders and Voyagers once and bought them. Luckily I went with HTS for my Animated fix. All I need is Voyager Prime and I will have wave 1 & 2 Deluxe, wave 1, 2, & 3 Voyager, wave 1 Leader, and the box set. I need some Animated goodness soon.

    Given that if you want to pick up all of what will definently be out in June (wave 2 deluxe is most likely to be more widely available in July IMPO) you'd need about $140 plus tax. And than another $20 in July when Blackarachnia and Ratchet will most likely hit saturation.

    Myself, I'm only planning on getting these in June:

    Lockdown, Bumblebee, Cyb Optimus Prime, Prowl, Earth Optimus Prime & Starscream. So, I'll only need about $80 plus tax. Looks like I know where some of my economic stimulus check is going to go...

    HTS put Voyager Prime up last night for a short time. It looks like I got the last one. I also pre-ordered the Universe Deluxe and Voyager figures. HTS is taking my money fast. Anyway at least I don't have to hunt down Animated now. I can set back and wait for it to come to me.

    Back on topic I think wave 1 and 2 of the Deluxe and Voyager figures will be out on the 22nd. Ratchet and Blackarachnia may be harder to find and only a few area may have them but I remember wave 2 of the Movie figures being out at launch. Everything else should be later like the Activators, Cyber Slammers, etc.

    I believe.. some certain States in the US already have the Deluxes.

    Both Voyagers and Deluxes are out in Canada. :D

    Yeah, I'm debating if I should just pre-order off HTS so I may have to wait but am guaranteed to get what I want. Now though, I heard they take forever to ship out, is that true from HTS?

    I don't know about them taking forever to ship, once they have your product they're usually pretty diligent about shipping it to you, but they use First Class Mail so depending on where you are in the US it could take some time to reach you. The horror of HTS shipping is in the fact that they send the smallest package they can and essentially jam everything you ordered into it making some really sqaushed boxes if you have a large order. Also, even if you don't have a large order your Transformers boxes are likely to get damaged as they use very little to no packing materials to stop your items from moving around inside the box (accpet for them being slammed together). Personally, I won't order from them anymore, but that's just me.
