    Even the collector market doesn't need reveals. They just want to buy stuff. The Mayhem stuff sold out without a reveal strean.

    If they dropped preorders for 86 Megs/Prime today it'd sell out just as fast as if it came with a Livestream.

    Hasbro needs to get off their asses and reveal these guys already so we in the states can preorder them on BBTS already. I’m ready for Gears, Starscream, & Silverbolt damn it.

    I'd be more embarrassed to post such a comment about toys.

    Would have thought yesterday's in stock at CMDstore would have covered everyone mostly. Who here still looking for wave 2?

    It sold out rather quick, so not everyone who wanted some got some. And many who do want these, might not have wanted to pay the shipping price even if they had more available.

    But then once American sites put up preorders, who knows how long they have to wait for those to be in stock.

    It'll be interesting to see the timing of the preorders vs. estimated ship date.

    In the past we've seen complaints about streams with no preorders, and we've seen complaints when preorders ship earlier than expected.

    If they put up W2 with a smaller window and then hit that date, could be that's basically them addressing the above two concerns.

    Me? Because I don't need W2 early enough to pay CMD prices.

    May not be that long if they're trying to avoid shipping stuff too early and blowing up budgets.

    Pulse specifically has a habit of trailing the first few retail sightings. Even when they ship earlier than the initial ETA.

    We know distribution is already underway, so when American sites put up their preorders, the items should come in fairly quickly (or even already be available). While the reveals have not been scheduled, figures are still being released at the same rate with collector stores getting new figures every three months or so.

    Quick question, are the complaints about reveals truly simply that, ie "why aren't Hasbro showing us the figures we know are coming?" or is it more about the lack of preorders? If the latter, then that means there is a lot of excitement about these figures, which is great. Which figures do you want to preorder right away?

    I'm assuming Shard is not as big a priority because he's still available. And not as a preorder but shipping right now: Transformers Legacy United 6 Inch Action Figure Deluxe Class (2024 Wave 2) - Shard

    It's more about showing us.
    These are showing up in stores now and Hasbro has yet to acknowledge them.

    I genuinely think people on these boards forget how small a portion of the fanbase tfw is. We are definitely passionate and vocal but... like I don't really talk to many people on here but I recognize a shocking amount of usernames in threads and can usually guess how they'll feel on figures and news. That tells me a lot lol

    There are 4 weeks of announcement streams that have been planned well in advance. They aren't going to shuffle plans around because a few specialty stores got them early.

    But you already know they exist, we know this month is a weekly reveal stream so what difference does it make then? You’ve already seen them. Hasbro will acknowledge them and time will move on.

    Ive thought the same exact things, if the majority of one’s posts are negative… that’s all I need to know.

    Does anyone remember if the leaked listings include Rock Lords in the Voyager price point? Curious if they are keeping with that after testing waters with Trashmaster.


    But you've seen them.

    Like, I remember when they've done reveal streams without POs and people got pissy about that.

    According to listings there are no Voyager Rocks, all we have left are a Deluxe and a Core.
