    are the "First Edition" ones just the same figure with a sticker on them or something?

    Even if BBTS is right, which I also doubt. They never mentioned TRU. I'm sure TRU will carry these.

    Don't get me wrong, fuck paying 35 bucks for two deluxes and some PVC figurines. I'd rather pick these up at retail.


    Prime Wave 1 in terms of the "Official Launch" of the line in 2012 is Bumblebee (2x Guns and a slightly altered deco), Cliffjumper (Entirely new mold), Wheeljack and Soundwave.

    No word on what Voyagers we're getting with that, or if the Entertainment Pack will be in that assortment either.

    No they are not the same.

    From what I've been reading the mainstream stuff coming next year is going to be different molds and subtle changes in paint decos.

    but who knows, it could be just here say.

    TRU will start to carry the now advertised 2 pack of Prime and Megatron in the last week of Nov-first week of December. The street date for the prime figs is "technically" in the first quarter, but I strongly doubt that any store that receives them will wait that long, not with store shelves still bloated with DotM Cyberverse Toys and HA figures. Pretty sure that a lot of these figs will get moved in that massive "Clearance Aisle" at Walmart to make way for the more recent and better selling Prime toys, but that is just a hunch.

    I guess it depends on which stores are going to follow their planogram. BTW, when Hasbro says they will be scaling back on distribution, it does not mean less stores will get them, it usually means less product will be shipped, but to their primary locations. So maybe the Brick and Mortar Walmarts may get overlooked, maybe a Kohl's here and there, but your Super Walmarts and Targets will still have product.

    Wow, really? I didn't know there were different paint apps and changes in the molds! Is there a link to this info? Or pics? I only ask because I am a bit of a paint whore, that would make me buckle on buying the early bird special Prime toys.

    I kind of get that feeling with Ultimate Prime. He's out there but he's not out there balls out like Unicron in 2004. He was every where. Thanks for the tip E!

    The resource section has it all.

    And if I say so myself, they keep hinting that a character will "Come back in a big way" for Season 2..... We're getting 3 Cliffjumper toys in the first two waves...... HMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM.

    FINALLY, the people's Transformer is back from the dead? I hope not, his death was substantial in setting the tone for the series. Only Prime is immortal. :lol

    Loved CJ! Total gangsta way to go out. BTW, found the red Ironhide at the Target off of 101 & Frank Lloyd Wright in Snobsdale. They also opened a new Hobby Lobby off of the 101 and Indian Bend, next to TRU. Match made in heaven, huh? :lol

    Stopped by the Toyrus on Ray Rd and the ones off Estrella. Nothing interesting save the 50 Ultimate Optimus Primes that were above the TransFormers. It was kinda freaky...
