    I like that a couple promos actually have pictures of the cards now. Is this the first time they did that?

    Looks like Wave 4 comes with a new Optimus Card. Just pulled this out of my Waspy box. Translates to “Becomes Nemesis Prime”. Not sure if its really note worthy or anything

    It\'s about freaking time! On a slightly unrelated note, Slammer is a hard pass, unless this new Metroplex is indeed made to to along with him (As in, G1)

    I'm trying hard to imagine Megatron doing his best Paul Stanley impression.

    NOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    It looks like Pipes and Slammer have been pushed back to create Wave 5 for the Kingdom line. On Amazon the pictures of their boxes have been removed, and on Entertainment Earth, Shadow Panther and Waspinator are being packed with re-releases of Tracks and Paleotrex. (sniff)

    This is a shame, since the numbers show that Pipes and Slammer were originally going to be released alongside Shadow Panther and Waspinator.

    On the Chosen Prime, their pre-order dates are for November, which most likely means a release date around either Veteran's Day or Thanksgiving weekend.

    No idea which deluxe figures Tigatron will be released besides, but Amazon still has Shadow Panther and Waspinator street dated for October 1st, so we will know very soon if Slammer and Pipes will be released as well and Wave 5 will cease to exist. (fingers crossed for Slammer and Pipes Wave 4 release)

    Not happening. Was rumored they were pushed into a wave 5 a few months back. Was confirmed when Waspinator and Shadow Panther were spotted at retail with repack of Tracks and Paleotrex on the pegs.

    I was able to preorder them just fine on BBTS so as long as that gets honored then I don't care if the release is a bit pushed back. Better than waiting for them to never show up at retail.

    Looks like you made it just in time, BBTS just deleted Pipes and Slammer's product detail pages.

    Are there any actual Amazon links for these yet? Can't find them, but I've never been good at using Amazon--never knew how people could find product pages with no photos weeks or months before reveals...

    That they did, just checked again myself using my confirmation links! That was surprisingly fast, I just pre-ordered this morning, I actually wouldn't be too shocked if they send me a cancelation email soon.

    I checked my preorder for wave 4 with bbts, it's showing secret figures now in place of pipes and slammer, which is a bummer.

    They are hard to find, due to Amazon sometimes changing the product title to "TRA GEN WFC."

    Tigatron: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B08P3S4GG...olid=1LV1YMT5G9CS7&psc=0&ref_=lv_ov_lig_dp_it
    Slammer: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B08P3S4QK...olid=1LV1YMT5G9CS7&psc=0&ref_=lv_ov_lig_dp_it
    Pipes: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B08P3T7FC...olid=1LV1YMT5G9CS7&psc=0&ref_=lv_ov_lig_dp_it
    Shadow Panther: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B08P3RSQ5...olid=1LV1YMT5G9CS7&psc=1&ref_=lv_ov_lig_dp_it
    Waspinator: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B08P3TT5F...olid=1LV1YMT5G9CS7&psc=0&ref_=lv_ov_lig_dp_it

    As of this comment being typed, Shadow Panther is the only figure available on Amazon via scalpers who want at least $42.19 (which includes shipping fees).

    It's unfortunately no secret that the other figures are Tracks and Paleotrex. (sigh)

    Tigatron is already up on BBTS, no pictures though. Amazon actually has stock images
    It was rumored that there would be a fifth Wave of Kingdom, ever since Blaster was listed as being part of Kingdom before he comes out in Legacy

    I kinda hope, through some miracle, those are the colours Shadow Panther is released in. The bright yellow looks awful on him, so I'd be fine if, in a last second change, they just straight up removed it and went with him just being black and silver, besides the yellow on the back of his head.

    Wait, he is? Huh, guess I've lost track of other countries' releases, since these got leaked so long ago and I'm still waiting for wave 3 to hit any Aussie stores that still sell Transformers for reasonable prices.

    Edit: Oh. Just noticed what thread this is. That's what happens when I don't read the thread title after clicking through to it from a front page news post.:lol
