    I'm guessing these haven't been spotted yet? Steeljaw's there, but didn't think he was news. Only one missing was Bee. Spotted @ Target Saratoga CA.

    Yes, these are indeed new, including Steeljaw (since he's a redeco).

    According to Griffin himself, the Steeljaw redeco is named "Cybertron Strike Steeljaw".

    I'd also like to point out that "Hyper Vault" on Soundwave's packaging is just a gimmick call-out and not part of the toy's actual name. The previous waves had "Hyper Flip" for Optimus Prime, "Hyper Twist" for Bumblebee, "Hyper Swoop" for Grimlock and "Hyper Hook" for Seismic Strike Thunderhoof.

    Any chance someone could snap a photo of the UPC barcodes? :)

    I'm not sure if the Bumblebee redeco is in this wave. The figure is coming up, but I'm not aware of any previous 3-Step Changer wave containing three new figures.

    Thermidor is a Warrior. Waves from different assortments ship independently from each other.

    Saratoga @ San Jose CA. I'll check another Target after work to see if they have any bumblebees cause they show him under Steeljaw's box, but maybe its just a preview thing for future waves?

    Clear photo of Steeljaw in packaging, as well as a close-up of the UPC barcodes, would also be appreciated!

    Target is on fire with releases lately! :eek:  I guess Hasbro finally replied to those we-have-empty-pegs-for-months emails? :rolleyes2 

    I don't accept this answer. :) 

    Besides, the poster wasn't actually implying that Thermidor ships with these. I'm not sure anyone here would assume that... :sly: 

    Sometimes I think it'd be nice if Hasbro separated the lines a bit (on shelves) and just made a kid section. The stores would certainly look less empty if they didn't have all those extra Warrior or TR pegs just hanging around and waiting. :)

    No, but there's really no way of telling when the Thermidor/Bludgeon/Twinferno wave will come out since outside of movie lines, Hasbro Transformers toys don't usually have "street dates", at least none that are disclosed to the public.

    Chances are someone might find Thermidor at a Toys"R"Us store in New Mexico tomorrow. Or not. The UPC barcodes (which we know thanks to a Walmart leak) aren't linked with any public listings on Amazon yet, so the wave can either show up at retail tomorrow, or it won't materialize for another three months.

    I wonder if Hyper ? Power Surge Bumblebee is the reissue of the Bumblebee/Optimus Prime CF W1.

    It's odd that they are giving us a redeco Bumblebee, that isn't the new remolded Bumblebee that came out earlier this year.
    This Power Surge Bumblebee is similar to the Energon Boost Bumblebee from last year, as they both have the light blue "Energon" coloring, but this one has more black on it to make the blue stand out more, plus the circuit pattern that Steeljaw has (maybe a plot device from an episode this season).

    Thanks for that!

    More black paint, and some of the blue paint has been changed to some sort of circuitry pattern.
