    Soundwave and Wheeljack are indeed in wave 6. Leadfoot is in a Target exclusive two pack with a Topspin repaint called Twintwist. No news on Mirage yet

    The bios for Darksteel and Air Raid are interesting.

    Darksteel looks good, but I'm still on the fence about getting Air Raid.

    I like the AWACS alt-mode, and the Mechtech shield/ion blaster is cool. It's just the robot mode that looks a bit sketchy, mostly with the aircraft tail just there in place of a right hand.

    ....I don't think I want Air Raid now. Darksteel is the only one from this wave I'm actually interested in. Jeeze...he looks fantastic. The remolded Mechtech weapon which was awful on Starscream actually looks good on this.

    Just to compare (for sanity's sake I've excluding exclusives):

    ROTF Deluxes: Preview + Waves 1-5
    New Molds = 14
    -Soundwave
    -Breakaway
    -Rampage
    -Sideswipe
    -Sideways
    -Chromia
    -Skids
    -Wheelie
    -Ravage
    -Mudflap
    -Jolt
    -Blazemaster
    -Skids & Mudflap (ice cream truck)
    -Arcee
    Reused Molds = 8
    -Preview Bumblebee
    -Cannon Bumblebee
    -Deep Desert Brawl
    -Smokescreen
    -Interrogator Barricade
    -Dead End
    -Swerve
    -Stalker Scorponok

    DOTM Deluxes: Waves 1-5
    New Molds = 14
    -Bumblebee
    -Crankcase
    -Ratchet
    -Roadbuster
    -Skids
    -Starscream
    -Barricade
    -Jolt
    -Sideswipe
    -Topspin
    -Laserbeak
    -Mudflap
    -Nitro Bumblebee
    -Air Raid
    Reused Molds = 6
    -Thundercracker
    -Cyberfire Bumblebee
    -Specialist Ratchet
    -Armor Topspin
    -Track Battle Roadbuster
    - Darksteel


    DOTM Voyagers: Waves 1-4
    New Molds = 6
    * Demolishor
    * Starscream
    * The Fallen
    * Megatron
    * Mixmaster
    * Stratosphere
    Reused Molds = 3
    * Ironhide
    * Optimus Prime
    * Desert Tracker Ratchet

    DOTM Voyagers: Waves 1-4
    New Molds = 6
    * Ironhide
    * Megatron
    * Optimus Prime
    * Shockwave
    * Skyhammer
    * Sentinel Prime
    Reused Molds = 2
    * Fireburst Optimus Prime
    * Cannon Force Ironhide

    Not too much difference really. However, being the third movie we've seen a good number of these characters several times over. Plus Target, Walmart, and TRU went crazy with exclusives this time around, adding loads more redecos/retools to the pegs.

    Thanks Noideaforaname! Yeah, the big thing for DotM is they blasted out all new molds with MechTech and now they have to make back their investment. Problem is, combined with the reticence to release the fairly major Soundwave, Wheeljack, and Mirage, not to mention a Wreckers release pattern that makes everybody happy, it really just "feels" like the line has shown us all there is to see very early on.

    Soundwave and Wheeljack should have been capitalizing on the release, not months down the line.

    Would have been a buy for me if he were a Voyager...
    ...and had a realistic paint job...
