    Technically it's not Masquerade. I posted this in Toys, but:

    Spoilers from the latest Transformers issue # 41 in the following link:
    Next Combiner - Imgur

    Spoilers for the comic plot:
    The latest issue of the IDW comic series has Prowl force the Autobots to merge as Ultra Prime with Mirage, Sunstreaker, Ironhide, and Prowl as the limbs (which most have already seen in the rumors), where 'Masquerade' consisted of Optimus, Mirage, Jazz, Sideswipe and Windcharger.

    Originally we had all thought the car-bot limbs would be an homage to 'Masquerade', and perhaps they still are, but this configuration can now be mapped to a 'canon' event in Combiner Wars

    HTS Memorial Day Sale

    HTS has a new promo code of "MEMORIAL15" that just started up, ending 05/27/15. 15% off, and free shipping @ $50.

    Get your CW Leader Thundercracker, and anything else that comes in between now and then! :)  Just in time for Quickslinger and Brake-Neck if you haven't picked them up from Amazon yet...that should be posted on Friday if the news postings are accurate.

    Yes, but you can't very well use that as shorthand around people who may not want comic spoilers, so Masquerade is a more useful group term for now.

    Haha yeah. We can of course call it "the Autobot combiner" but Masquerade is the technically-inaccurate-but-I-get-what-you're-saying nomenclature for sure.

    Is it normal to have 3 waves in the first 6 months of the year and only 1 wave in the back 6 months?

    Bbts has him in stock at 90, which in my area was the cost of dragonzord in stores with tax. Still waiting on their megazord reissue

    doesn't matter because distribution usually toward the end of the year sucks.

    Actually if you have the Redcard the $25 restriction comes off, and you still get the 5%. I just ordered Brake-Neck only (picked up Quickslinger on Amazon last week) and it came out to $17.59 shipped. Of course it'll probably be that wonderful Smartpost service but I'm in no hurry.

    Btw, speaking of Target, a full set of wave 3 CW deluxes @ the Carson store off the 110 as of yesterday around 4. I think they might've been $18.99, which is why I passed on them.

    Doesn't sound limited to me, looks like everyone that wants one will eventually get one.

    This is great! HTS is on fire with offering these goodies with their promo code in effect. Just waiting for Leader Ultra Magnus now (maybe next month).

    Thundercracker, Hotspot, and Cyclonus all shipping now BTW!

    Edit: Quickslinger and Brake-Neck just went out of stock on HTS.
