    Hasbro controls the dates, not EE or anyone else (BBTS, Target, etc). They have no control over when Hasbro sends them the products.

    So, is the "WELCOME" tattooed on your chest in regular print or reversed like on an ambulance?

    We do not know, though it's generally assumed to be the running change variant of Onslaught.

    I can confirm that wave 4 voyagers were in Hasbro cases of 2. One of each figure. Wave 5 is scheduled to be the same.

    Holy crap that's bizarre!

    I wonder why they made the switch? Though I'd guess its to allow for more diversity in stores, with all the Voyagers they're putting out this year.

    Swung by my local Target... totally cleaned out. Zero deluxes, even the legends were cleaned out. Plenty....P-L-E-N-T-Y of RID though, and a solitary CW Motormaster.

    I hope BBTS gets those voyagers this coming week.

    after xmas you won't see anything at retail till april. the window is small for new product to come out. there's definitely not time for it to reach any kind of substantial numbers at retail. they might not bother. some wave always gets screwed. i think it's this one. wave 4 is only now starting to be seen everywhere. shockwave is already sold out on hts.

    Can you please remind the readers at home again what exactly is the difference in between the two versions of Onslaught? Thanks!

    The one that will be released with Scattershot is with colors more closer to Bruticus, while the running change version (probably will be released with Sky-Lynx) has colors more closer to Onslaught himself.

    The distribution on the equivalent wave 2 years ago (Waspinator, Skids, Dreadwing, Goldfire BB) wanged chung and eventually warranted a rerun 6 months later!

    However early days yet on this one.

    As for Shockwave selling out, that was inevitable. But since the next assortment looks like a 3 character one I'd expect Shockwave to get repacked there.
