    For me it is fine, so that it is ordered and in number of products per wave, not one or two Deluxe figures representing a wave (I was nostalgic when Cheetor was wave 1.5 looool).

    The saying goes: "The order of the factors does not alter the product."

    I'm worried those two will become victims of "last wave syndrome" and be much harder to find as a result. Hard to say with the big p still going on and online retail gaining more of a footing though.

    Pre-ordered Tigatron, Waspinator and Panther for now unless for some miraculous reason I find them at retail

    I asked this in the Shadow Panther review thread but figured I would ask here too. Is there a running change on Shadow Panther? The shoulders and ankles now looks to be molded in black plastic instead of yellow.

    The promotional images feature an incorrect prototype. All versions at retail will have the yellow.

    Thanks! yeah, I'll wait on the official Amazon PO start as that's the cheapest way for me to get these in Japan.
    Going through TT should be the cheapest route, but no telling when that will be... probably next August or something shit like that. Then we won't even be guaranteed they'll release all of these in Japan, sigh. I'm so disappointed in Takara these days :(

    If all these POs are coming, it's likely Pulse will go live soon as well. It'd be wise to pay attention to them around noon CST today.

    Too bad, I think the figure would look better without the yellow.

    I found Shadow Panther online for a good deal.  Have yet to find Waspinator or Tigatron :(

    As a panther it works, but it needs the yellow to break things up in bot mode.

    As previously indicated in an earlier post, BBTS has Tigatron Live for Preorder with an October Ship date. Secured Pipes and Slammer from The Chosen Prime. I do hope Hasbro reveals Waves 4 and 5 today.

    And yet we still don’t have Kingdom Voyager Starscream for preorder. Odd.

    Liking this weapon breakdown for Slammer.

    (@Black Convoy , just in case this is specifically newsworthy as it pertains to Slammer)

    Did I miss it or did Pipes get zero fanfare prior to preorder? I think he got a mention and it was a side-eye kinda mention. I get he's mostly retool and doesn't have big fame or obscurity cred, but even still. Harsh. I think I saw Puffer before I saw his official pics.

    Wave 4 and 5 didn't get revealed and still haven't been acknowledged by hasbro. Likely due to wave 4 being at US retail for almost a month now, Hasbro felt like they NEEDED to just allow preorders online without a reveal.

    He's got a shotgun (cannon) and a chainsaw. Reminds me of someone:

    ezgif-2-fc3ab2af4515.gif

    He's all ready to go hunting Deadites Sparkless bots. It's just too bad he doesn't transform into an Oldsmobile Delta 88.

    I'm glad Slammer can swap arms though, because Ash Williams is left-handed!

    Well now that's official Canon as far as I'm concerned.

    Not only does he look like Brawl, but he really comes with a combiner port?
