No idea if this is news, but these are out in the wild now. According to the box these things are Hot Topic exclusive. Of note though is that only Grimlock actually has the words 'Hot Topic Exclusive' on his bio card. EDIT: It also appears that there are at least two different sets for wave 2. Standard assortment includes: - Prime (electronic) - Slag - Sideswipe - Prowl - Shockwave - Shrapnel - Ramjet - Thrust Chase figures for this case are Mirage (1/16), Dirge (1/24) and Skywarp (1/96) Hot Topic assortment includes: - Prime (electronic) - Grimlock (Hot Topic Exclusive) - Snarl (Hot Topic Exclusive) - Slag - Shockwave - Shrapnel - Ramjet - Thrust Chase figures for this set are Dirge (1/24), Skywarp (1/96) and either Bluestreak or Smokescreen (2/48) Anyone who bought the first series will know that calling these 'action vinyls' was incredibly generous. This wave changes that, the entire design has been redone. Now they feature (usable) ball joints in the hips, shoulders, neck, wrists, waist and head. They end up standing a little taller because of it. They also include a ton more accessories this time around. Grimlock even has his entire dinosaur mode upper torso. In addition, not sure if we knew this previously but the Optimus from this set is electronic. It has an interchangeable forearm/energy axe and speaks three 3-second phrases.
