    If Hasbro was smart, it's go:

    3X Vehicons
    3X Soundwave (For those who didn't get him)
    2X Dead End
    2X Airachnid
    2X Knockout
    1X Bumblebee
    1X Cliffjumper.

    But nope. Can't have enough Bumblebees.

    But that's like 14 figures...pretty sure it's only 8 for deluxe cases

    Really?

    Well, Hasbro has some things to rewrite, then....

    I really hope that V2 Bumblebee is actually a new mold and not just the Shadow Strike repaint. I wouldn't mind a new Bumblebee if it were better than the one they've already clogged the shelves with. Except it would still clog the shelves because of Hasbro's case assortment habits... which I would mind.

    Did Blackarachnia warm shelves? I really can't remember.


    For arguments sake lets say she DID shelfwarm. If Hasbro was afraid of her shelfwarming then why make another female Decepticon spider again? If they don't feel confident in a character than why even bother creating it at all?!?

    ... wrong size aside, that's just... a terrible idea. Soundwave's my favorite RiD mold and even I think putting two of him in a case is overkill at this point.

    ... and really, I just don't think Dead End needs to exist. While I like redecoes more than most people, at this point straight repacks would be better received due to awful assortments. And the only thing easier than a redeco is a straight repack.

    Blackarachnia shelfwarmed pretty heavily. But that's largely because she was overpacked, it was pretty much just her and Ratchet in wave 2.

    I don't think that they believe no one will ever buy it, but they don't want to risk another Blackarachnia situation so they're overcompensating. Kind of like they're overcompensating for not enough BBs in the 07 lineup by having multiples in every wave.

    I'll admit it - if I see Dead End at WalMart when I'm out grocery shopping, I'll probably get him. But the only figure in that BB mold I'm getting is Hot Shot.

    At least they're not going with three Bumblebees. And Soundwave's inclusion is nice. It's not an ideal assortment but I don't think it warrants rage. It is a shame they didn't include the Vehicon - if any figure needs to get overpacked it's that one.
