Posted on 10-19-2006 at 04:21 PM by Tony_Bacala under Universe
44182453801692079d An auction from a US seller might indicate that his wave has been released. The auction features Wideload, Energon Saber and Treadshot, the latter of whom hasnt been among the samples from the Chinese auctions. Chances are the wave might also feature a sixth, at this point still unknown, Basic.

Universe Wave 2: Terradive Wideload Signal Flare and Energon Saber

Posted on 08-05-2006 at 06:13 PM by Tony_Bacala under Universe
tfubasics21px0 Universe Basic Assortment wave 1 was released in August 2005, exclusive to Family Dollar and Ocean State Job Lot (possibly also Dollar General).
The wave consisted of: Energon Perceptor (Mini-Con Team), Arcee, Windrazor, Insecticon, Strong Arm (actually the colors of the "Energon Strongarm" repaint, but called simply "Strong Arm" in two words) and Doom-Lock.

Assortment number was 81132, which is the same as on these toys. Which makes it more than likely that these figures will be available from the same stores again.

There was also a Universe Deluxe assortment featuring Energon Sharkticon, Storm Jet, Barricade and Steamhammer. Those were available from Big Lots and Tuesday Morning stores.

Its widely assumed that these toys are factory overstock from the Energon line that have never been packaged and are now simply released on "Universe" cards. The first wave of the Basic repackages sold for about $5.00 per toy.
