    We've seen a few pics of Reveal the Shield Rumble, in and out of Euro packaging. Has anyone heard if this is slated to come out in the US? Although Hasbro has said that Generations/RTS will continue through 2011, we've heard very little about this guy.

    I see the TF United versions are sold out everywhere, leading me to think most interested collectors assume we won't see it stateside any time soon.

    Anybody have any info?

    Infos been scarce at best. Considering wheeljack, tc, and warpath arent even really hitting retail, and movie toys will be here very shortly, Id say its unlikely.

    Was it Euro packaging?

    ....just in case anyone is in doubt. RTS Rumble and his wavemates haven't been released in the UK, and i'm fairly sure they haven't been released anywhere.


    We've seen relatively little of these in packaging, which makes me think they didn't make mass production. There's definitely some evidence so show the supply of new TFs to retailers is being limited at the moment,for some reason or other. Regardless of distribution issues.

    However, it seems almost inevitable they'll be resolicited. Possibly sold in DOTM packaging.

    Is there a Hasbro Q&A upcoming? We should ask about it.

    It was my understanding that Generations/RTS was always intended to run along side the Movie line. Now it seems like they're going back on that.

    i know there is a case of RTS scouts that "rumble" is suppose to be apart of, along with bodyblock, downshift, and more windchargers, but that hasn't been found in stores yet

    all i know is, i need that new big daddy (downshift), windcharger, and frenzy bad

    hasbro said generations was gonna continue, RTS is going the way of HFTD, and becoming DOTM

    until hasbro says otherwise, generations is gonna continue

    But since Rumble and that wave are technically RTS, not Generations, are they basically falling through the cracks?

    Have we actually seen a case breakdown that says there are more Windchargers in this case assortment, which may or may not ship?

    If they get resolicited, new toys move to a new case assortment, Windhcharger, if it was even in this (theoretical?) case probably gets the chop.

    Why do i get the idea it's been cancelled. I mean we haven't gotten much mention or really any preorders.

    No, Rumble & Downshift's case assortment has not been posted to Entertainment Earth. Only the same Windcharger/Chopsaw/crap filler case has been listed there, or anywhere else.

    Thanks to whoever moved this thread. I almost never start threads, and I swear I screw it up every time.

    When did Hasbro say that Generations would continue? If it's more then a month old then that statement is out of date.

    That would be more consistent with the general level of confusion as to what's happening to those three scouts.

    I've posed this question to @Entearth and they have responded that they have not received any more information about anything beyond the Windcharger case. They pretty much put up info on their site as they get it and make their orders.

    Bodyblock, Rumble, and Downshift are currently in limbo.

    I think the teller will be when online TF stores start to put up preorders for the first wave of DOTM assortments. IF they do that and there's still no listing for the Bodyblock/Rumble/Downshift wave, then I think it's safe to assume that wave has been cancelled. I wouldn't count it out until then.
