    Anytime. I didnt mean to offend, but for all I know that could have been 3 Ironworks and a Hoist in the bag. The image gave the appearance that you were rushing to get a photo submitted just to win the race for a news credit.

    It's not a great pic but you can tell its not fake by looking at the sides of the boxes and seeing the art.

    You can clearly see the side art of the boxes, which show each of the figures. Not to mention the tops of the boxes, one of which has a different Quintesson symbol, that isnt the bot or con symbol. And to your "rush to get a news credit" thing, I saw reports of these a day or two ago in different states. So that comment means nothing.

    Ironworks and Hoist have Decepticon and Quintesson symbols on their boxes?

    And the package art for Airwave, Allicon and Arcee?

    Took long enough LOL.  It is fall, so I guess it was time for this next wave to do so.  I\'m still on the hunt for SS 64 & 65 (CLIFFJUMPER & BLITZWING, respectively), as well as ER MEGATRON and QUINTESSON Judge.

    Great find! One question though. I can't see it in the pic but how much does the red cover on Smokey's hood? Does the red come all the way down to the front of the hood or does it stop half way back? I've seen pics showing both. Thanks.

    Yeah I noticed. Had to enlarge it. Never said it was fake. I just said it looked rushed.

    Yeah I saw eventually. I never doubted it was fake. I just said it looked rushed like he thought someone was going to beat him to the news credit. Snap a picture of the shopping bag and upload it from the parking lot.

    When you have to enlarge a photograph to view its content, using the words "you can clearly see" is stretching it a bit. And just because YOU saw reports in other states 2 days ago doesnt mean I saw them. Also the guy got his lazy pic front paged, so common sense would imply his sighting was the first to be vetted by the news crew. I told the guy no disrespect, in my comment. The guy even admitted later on that "it wasnt a great pic" so I dont feel I did any wrong by being honest. Its like people are looking for things to get offended by now a days.

    Thank you. And my apologies if I came of sounding a bit abrasive. I tend to be
    I had to enlarge the picture to notice it.

    Thank you. And my apologies if I came of sounding a bit abrasive. It seems everyones feathers got ruffled because made that comment. Its like theyre searching for something to be offended by...

    Dude, I am so jealous!

    I'm hoping they start showing up in Australia this month, because October and November are gonna be extremely busy for me and toy hunting is gonna be a no-go.

    I wonder what the distribution of these and wave 3 will be, considering Hasbro likes getting wave 1 of new lines onto shelves as Christmas breathes down, as Siege was first seen in December of 2018. Sunstreaker, Runamuck, and Trailbreaker can't be too far behind? We've already seen ER Megatron and Quintesson Judge get spotted only weeks after Snapdragon, so it's possible.

    It seems like Australia has been pretty decent with getting stuff on time lately, so I'd expect you guys get them soon. Seems like the pandemic delayed the absolute hell out of these though.
