    I would rather see the revision case. Fingers crossed it is common. I need a few more Vehicons.

    Hell, between FE, NYC CC, and the Starscream/BB pack, I am balls deep in BBs in this line, so I will be grabbing one to round out the army when I see this wave. Decided to go everything Deluxe+ on the line, and stay away from most of the Takara stuff for now, so there is one less BB on the pegs for everyone when I find this wave.

    Now all we need is a couple of hamburger patties and buns and we can have ourselves a decent little barbeque!...lol

    Yeah...The Hasbro Case Assortment guy needs to be taught a thing or two...or three...:( 

    One can hope as I haven't seen squat around me and I'm looking to acquire a few Vehicons.

    One Shadowstrike Bumblebee in this wave is one too many...lol

    Hasbro needs to put out a case of just Vehicons and Jet Vehicons or a gift set of some kind like their fond of doing with Star Wars troop buildng sets.

    Probably won't see any of these for a while, what with the guy with the Movie Bumblebee Camaro seemingly always at my local Wal-Mart on the days most likely to have new shipments. That car was parked in the lot almost every time there was signs that wave had been on the racks.

    I've grown to hate Camaro BB and not the armies of Prime BB.

    Keep in mind with case assortments that not every figure has the same "cost" to Hasbro. A whole case of Vehicons may cost more than a whole case of Bumblebees. They mix up the cases so that they even out to be the same price per case, and retailers will sell them all at the same price.

    I became far less interested in this wave when I saw how pitiful Airachnid seems to be, but it's nice that new stuff is making its way to shelves.

    So let's say it costs Hasbro more money to produce and package Vehicons than Bumblebee's on a case to case basis.

    Would it hurt Hasbro's bottom line if they put out a Vehicon gift set at a different price point?

    **FIXED**

    ...your probably not getting the figures at the same pace as us, but you ARE getting the figures! Hell, some stores here in the states haven't bothered to re-stock since Wave 1 either and Miami isn't exactly a small town in the middle of nowhere...not by a long shot!

    My target has all bumblebees.

    And that's the store around here that actually gets the new waves.
