    Wow, you're lucky, we still haven't gotten them here in Central Minnesota. Jeez I am starting to feel like Europe here.

    Canada does not get the individual character cards just the one uniform one with each wave. Wave 1 we got all Sunstreaker, wave 2 was Acid Storm, now it's Ironhide.

    Oh, that's odd.

    Are the back of the cards uniform? Or does it show Ironhide in Robot and Alt-mode for Wave 3?

    OMG! I just felt my wallet have stroke! HA! Seriously, I so expected these to come out in a month or so. Dammit. Well, less food for me then, huh? Unless I can get my friends to get these for me as Christmas gifts... *ponders this*

    All cards are the same from wave to wave, with the same art in front and stock photos for the entire wave on the back (i.e., wave 1 had Sunstreaker, Octane and Prowl on all cards, wave 2 has Acid Storm and Galvatron, etc., with the tech specs for each individual being printed on the back of its instructions.) Cost-cutting measures apparently. :rolleyes:

    Yes, the back just shows pictures current product. They put the tech specs and bio in there though.

    This is good but Universe Wave 2 hasn't even hit my region of Ontario yet, in fact, Blitzwing showed up in stores near me yesterday.

    Hasbro Canada is lazy with cards & uses a generic card. The 1st wave all had Sunstreaker on the cards

    Wow, really? That seems pretty bad business on their part, imo.

    Sadly, I don't see these coming to Alberta for a couple weeks yet, since I only just found Galvatron and Acid Storm two weeks back. But Silverbolt was finally out, so I won't give up hope..

    And wave 2 has Acid Storm on the front, and Galvatron on the back. (As you can sort of see in the corner of that pic...)

    Not really. Indtruction sheets use a lot less space than the card backs. I like it and hope it never changes.
