    Sign me up for a Voyager Drift!

    Jeez I hope Sky-bite isn't hard to find. He was the only Generations Voyager I wanted this year. (Ended up getting Whirl) and I'm saving up for leader Jetfire and MP SunnyStarscream.

    I come home from work to this. I don't understand. We didn't see Lockdown at the ToyFair and yet they say he's in wave 2 deluxes and that he might be a chase figure.

    But any case, I hope they release around the beginning of July. July 21 is my Birthday and I asked to go down the states for my Birthday. Finding wave 2 of Deluxe and Voyager would be the perfect Birthday gift.

    I'm definetly certain that Lockdown Wave 2 thing ISN'T right.

    Unless he's the One Step. We haven't seen him at ToyFair, no product images.

    Lemme take a look at EE's listing.

    Well I guess that explains why I can always find Springer. And not find Rhinox or Whirl.

    Oh, I see, clearly their afraid that they'll be a shortage of Bumblebee based on how well he moved during DOTM. So of course they have to short other characters so we have enough yellow Camereos.
    That was sarcasm. If they yellow bastard doesn't end up clogging pegs again I'll eat my hat.*

    I'm looking at this right now, and it looks like they got this from a different source. Their info isn't as big as other descriptions.

    Any toy-related news at all that even mentions Lockdown makes me excited.

    Springer even being in that voyager case is the most clear.. case of shenanigans I have seen in a while and just proves Hasbro is either continually inept or corrupt, take your pick.

    Well clearly since the AOE toys are out and I still haven't gotten my Cosmos, that means Hasbro is killing the line to put out one step changers, and those non transforming titans instead. Except not. But man there sure is a lot of product planned isn't there.

    Springer must be selling like hotcakes if they keep releasing him in new waves.

    And here I thought Hasbro had their shit together on case assortments. Voyagers should be 2 each of two figures, deluxes should be two each of four. Nobody's been complaining about case assortments this time around, and these numbers baffle me now.

    I'm pretty sure Hasbro has no way of knowing which toys in particular in a wave are selling, just if [size class] sells.

    You're right because they all have the same SKU. Now that being said they could have another built in marker we are oblivious to.. But I have the feeling it was done to make sure Skybyte was short packed.

    Since that case will never see store shelves they knew it would all be done online and they shorted Skybyte to make the online retailers have to order more cases. Sure its more profitable, but it is a straight up bitch move none the less.

    Interesting to see Lockdown cut from the revision of wave 2. Age of Extinction may as well be called Age of the Autobots, since we've had literally just two non-Autobots between all the classes of the first two waves of Generations and none at all in the first wave. I know Autobots sell, but dang, that's a bit extreme.

    We know that they at least casually check up on fan message boards from time to time. As much as we would like to believe sometimes, they do read our opinions.

    And the general opinion on Springer is Yes.
