    We still haven't seen reviews of the cores from the usual suspects. If one were inclined, they could get a ton of views with these...

    "If Hasbro does have a release date for these, they should just release it due to Christmas rush.

    I figured this was going to happen, GameStop had the cores listed for the 15th of December.

    The problem here is that "United" still shares the same Legacy Trilogy upc codes.

    On the one hand, sure, stores could get United out early, but this is because they ran out of Evolution and ordered "the next available wave of that upc"

    On the (more likely) other hand, sharing codes means that stores aren't motivated to clearance out "last years toyline" to make room for "next years toyline". In other words, expect that Walmart clogged with Legacy Arcee and Kickback and Skids to continue to rot away until 2025. Forget shopping brick & mortar stores and get comfy with online preorders

    Meh!
    All I want from this first wave is Windblade (and Thundertron) but even she’s like a C- so far. But odds are that we’ll start seeing them here in the States by mid December.

    I'm going to some Walmarts now. Even though since they are first sighted in the East, they probably won't be in the West for a while. But it's worth a try.

    Wish me Luck!

    Amazon has been eating most of retails lunch all this year and since Amazon's wave 1 preorders for Core and Deluxe are both for early January we're likely to start getting early releases for them much sooner. That dlx Rescue Bot and "Rocklord" I predict releasing the soonest from them.

    Yeah, the Walmart’s around me are not even up to Evolution yet. I doubt they’ll get United now, unless they skip like 4 waves…

    Would've been nice if they had properly finished the last wave of this year first. I still haven't been able to find Core Snarl.

    The last wave of any line is always the hardest to find. Shelfwarming of previous waves drag that order for the final wave out to the point where it just makes more sense to order the 1st wave of the next line

    Yeah. For sure. I seem to remember core being less impacted by this in the past though as with the exception of some of the early WFC stuff (One of the last targetmasters. Singe maybe? and one of the cassetticon packs) I've rarely had issues finding the little guys. It's usually been deluxes that pile up or leaders that are too big and pricey to ever be stocked in large amounts that get the pinch.

    I'm just miffed now because it seems like everyone is sold out of Snarl and Amazon has switched its listing from "we'll get more" to "we don't know if we're getting more" which is usually code for "you'll never see this again." And not only is it my favorite Dinobot, but it's the last one I need to complete the core set.

    It's highly recommended to preorder all of your most anticipated figures of the following wave. If the figures in question pop up at retail before the preorder then grab it and cancel the preorder. But lately retail hasn't been it...
