    Like in the US, the wave, branded as part of the "Combiner Force" subline imprint, features new figures Blastwave (a retool of Megatronus and "predeco" of Decepticon Bludgeon), Stormshot (new tooling) and Alpine Strike Autobot Drift (redeco), a general retail release of Starscream (previously a Toys"R"Us exclusive, branded as part of both the "Mini-Con Weaponizers" and "Clash of the Transformers" subline imprints) and re-releases of Grimlock and Strongarm in their original decos in the new packaging. For Grimlock, this is the third packaging variant after the original release and the "Mini-Con Weaponizers" re-release!

    Grimlock and strongarm are 2 per case (according to bbts) starscream, candy cane drift, stormshot and blastwave are all 1 per case.

    Fucking brilliant Hasbro, shortpack the new toys for figures that have been pegwarming for 2 years

    Let's be fair.. These are the colors drift should be in in the first place.

    But you're totally correct. Hasbro never seems to get their assortments correct.

    This Stormshot could make a nice Pharma if you'd change his head

    TFW2005 member PeterMagnus, whom I mentioned in my initial post, also deserves a credit for bringing this to my attention and providing photographic evidence of the Grimlock re-release.

    Weird that Hasbro did not simply take and re-release the IDW colored Dorifuto-Sama from the TAV Jazz two-pack, which had a new head too.

    Yup, that certainly would've given them more sales.

    I love my TAV version, and use him on my CHUG shelf. :D

    Color me surprised that they're still packing 2015 wave 1 figures, that they solicited solid cases of and never delivered, into assortments in 2017.

    I like show but the toy line leaves alot to be desired.
