    Amazing! Instead of 37 Cybertron product previews, there's now 38! So what's new?

    Ah, yes.

    Looks like they didn't even bother finishing it before linking it from the index page (anyone remember the "Alternators Red Alert" disaster a few weeks back?).

    A little digging around turned up these ones:

    http://www.hasbro.com/transformers/default.cfm?page=browse&product_id=17278
    http://www.hasbro.com/transformers/default.cfm?page=browse&product_id=17279
    http://www.hasbro.com/transformers/default.cfm?page=browse&product_id=17281
    http://www.hasbro.com/transformers/default.cfm?page=browse&product_id=17282

    Yeah, not much new there... And more unfinished than anything. :rolleyes:

    Personally, I think that out of all things, it's inexcusable for Hasbro not to keep up with the Cyber Key codes. Defense Red Alert has been out for HOW long now and his key code still isn't working!?

    Any time now, actually. Same for both Alts Ricochet and Rollbar and Cyb Defense Scattorshot and Dark Crumplezone.

    March? That contradicts what TFCC listed in their last Master Collector newsletter.

    That's fine. I'm not foaming at the mouth for repaints of Alternators. I have no problem waiting, there are plenty of good upcoming releases in the next six weeks.

    yeah, in terms of updates, the Hasbro site is far from being the best. Nice to see some spaces reserved for new figures though. Can't wait for Downshift to come out!

    March is what Entertainment Earth say.

    They tend to get toys 1-2 weeks before retail does.

    I'm confused about the release dates for some of the new figures. Hasbro's released dates (when written on the little card during conventions) are usually very reliable. But Entertainment Earth says that, for example, the new basics (Shortround, Repugnus etc... Wave 7 I believe) will be out in May, but BBTS says they'll be out in April... If EE gets the toys before the retailers do, then what's the deal with BBTS having them listed a month before EE says they're out?

    what's going on?!

    Same thing that happened to Cybertron Galvatron probably. Hasbro seems to be doing some sort of wacky revision to their waves compared to what they originally showed everyone at Botcon. Seems like we're getting alot of things earlier than we were expecting. But than they're mixing them with older stock too... :Gouki:  bad HASBRO!

    Predicting these upcoming releases is a lot like predicting the weather here in Minnesota. Guesswork, and usually off by a few days and a few degrees! :D
