    stores already got their huge xmas stocks and they don't include this wave.. it's just not looking good for this wave. stores would have to sell out of their stocks and be restocked by this wave before xmas.

    with the China samples showing up with the grey chest, i am somewhat skeptical that the "running change" will end up happening (or rather, since the one that was supposed to show up 2nd is showing up first thinking they scrapped plans for the olive chest version)

    My two cases are scheduled to be delivered today, so I can finally prove/disprove the 2 figure cases when I get home from work

    There's nothing to prove or disprove. Voyagers have been shipped in cases of 2 since wave 3.

    Most stores get shipments daily or every other day during the holidays so the more product moves, the better chances of newer stuff showing up earlier. Historically, going back to the Energon series, next year product starts trickling out in November and will drop en masse in late December/Early January.

    I didn't mean "prove" as in prove someone wrong, Nevermore and I were discussing how strange it was that Hasbro went to 2 figure cases out of the blue like that. I was not aware that Wave 3 was packed that way, but either way it was strange to come out of the blue like that.

    That said, my cases came today and they are indeed 2x per:

    Sorry, I thought you were suggesting that it was still unknown whether it was "true" or not.

    I actually misspoke though, wave 4 was the first wave to have cases of 2.

    it was known they were listed that way on EE, but no one had actually ordered a case and posted a pic of the 2x case. So there was no confirmation it had actually changed. We (Nevermore and I) were specualting that EE might have just listed them in "sets" and not "cases" but now that mine have arrived we can definitively say they are cases.

    I posted this when it came up earlier...

    But I'm learning that pictures are the only things that carry any weight here.

    Sorry, I didn't mean offence. Either way, seeing it in hand myself confirms what you said, more than "proving" in a prickish way. It just seemed so weird that Hasbro would make the swap after so many years of 4x cases, I needed to see for myself.

    Anywho, carry on all.

    No offense taken, just an odd trend I've noticed across the board.

    Unfortunately, that trend isn't born out of pure dickishness, but actually the consequence of too many bogus claims and pranks over the years.
