    Stumbled across this. No Astrotrain, though.

    Nice. Ordered him off Amazon, should be here this week. Don't know about Astrotrain though.

    Odd that Wave 2 is showing up though but Wave 1 has rarely been seen in stores.

    Thanks for the answer. But still you'd think they'd have been taking preorders...unless they were afraid they'd get shipped out before the street date.

    I think the "street date" includes a preorder embargo. It did for the Combiner Wars box sets.

    I wouldnt expect Takara to release an AT. I wouldnt expect to see a Sentinel Prime from them either.

    Takara has already announced their Astrotrain and you can preorder it.

    Seeing that pic makes me jealous, I'm still waiting for Amazon to get more stock in so they can ship me my copy.

    Might cancel it if I see one in the wild... Ha! That is a really funny joke right there.
