    I haven't read the comics, so I'm not sure about First Aid. I think I saw an axe,so possibly you're right about Rook.
    Wave 2 was not shown,so I couldn't compare the two.

    No Voyager figures besides wave 1.

    Good to know that you saw an axe seperately. Looks like Rook will be turned red and released as Ironhide in the next wave, while First Aid will be an Offroad retool as predicted from the ToyWiz leak.

    I'd just like to ask another thing- is the Ironhide pretool character you saw white, or a different colour? This should be enough to make sure for certain it's not First Aid.

    From the description, it sounds like he still connects at the rear of the truck. Just his cab is facing back instead of forward.

    I think what they mean was that Mixmaster's cab would end up closer to the knee while the drum would be the bottom part. Not a big deal since it would still look close enough.

    Great! Devy is going to be another TRU exclusive that will be next to impossible to find.

    Upscaled Deluxes? i can live with that, means they will have core articulation at least, just missing wrist swivels and ankle tilts. Which is fine by me.

    Still need to see for myself, but glad the "no individual robot modes" rumor has been put to rest.

    A lot of...odd complaints I'm reading here. From the pic here and on another website, this looks to be basicly the perfect devastator. 100% superior to anything so far. But by all means, if you don't like this dont get it. That'll leave more on the shelf for people who really want this. It makes me boil to think it might be hard to find because a bunch of ingrates ended up buying it anyway just to be all "meh it's ok, I like my ugly Hercules better".

    I thought TRU were pretty good at stocking Metroplex, there was like 5 at mine for a month, after they had went, another 4 appeared. same for MP figures. But i suppose it's different every where else.

    Also there is always the website and getting it delivered to your nearest store :p

    Thank you Marvelous for the info. Im really excited.

    The only bummer is it being TRU exclusive.

    My prediction:

    There will be lot of right HOOKs being thrown about this toy . Many TF fans will learn the to be fierce SCRAPPERS in their local TRUs. BONECRUSHING defeats will lead to many SCAVENGING on ebay for a copy. Many will complain about loose joints and will brush up on chemistry like MIXMASTER to solve the problem.
    I know a TRU exclusive toy can be elusive and tedious , but I'm in it for the LONG HAUL.
    Otherwise, I will surely be DEVASTATED.

    I also wouldn't be surprised if BBTS ended up with a few of them since a lot of the "Year of the X" stuff seems to be shared.

    Even if it's a TRU exclusive they will still sell them online at HTS, BBTS, TFSOURCE, Amazon, etc...
