    Black Bumblebee.


    I ended up ordering the three pack as finding Airachnid is gonna be a real bitch. Also, I can't believe there's no Vehicon in wave four, WTF is Hasbro thinking?!? *sigh*

    1 Airachnid, no Vehicon, 2 more Bumblebees...

    To whoever is responsible for these case ratios: I hope the soda machine eats your dollar fifty.

    I like how they have seperate preorders for OP and Jazz, and not shockwave. LOL.

    You're much too generous.



    Personally I hope the machine falls on them while they're banging on the machine trying to get their dollar fifty back.:lol

    Black Bee - that's Shadow Strike Bee right?

    And I can only hope that Hasbro does a case revision or fixes a lot of this with undisclosed Wave 5.

    That new FOC Optimus looks so simple of a transformation. Bot mode makes me think it was designed by Playskool.

    Also, he's wielding his blaster wrong I believe. :p

    That's it. I'm done. The scalpers win.

    I still would like to collect Transformers, but trying to find the individual characters I want without having to order them as part of a set which includes characters that I DON'T want is just becoming incredibly frustrating to say the least. I don't mind hunting for toys, but in terms of an analogy it's gone from hunting ducks or deer to hunting Bigfoot and the Loch Ness Monster. It's pretty much become a pointless endeavor.

    Someone SERIOUSLY needs to give Hasbro an earful at the BotCon panels. This is getting ridiculous. How could they shortpack a troop builder and not put it in later waves? And shortpacking Airachnid?

    At this point, it's cheaper for me to keep my Takara preorder of her than to order the Hasbro version from BBTS and get a Dead End and a Bumblebee I have no interest in. I don't blame BBTS for that - they're just dealing with horrid case ratios as best they can.

    Shockwave isn't individual because they're only selling him in sets so they're not stuck with a plethora of Primes and Jazzes.

    I just ask my wife to check the Toy section whenever she's at Walmart or Target getting other things we need. Seems to be working out pretty well for us.

    I planned on just buying everything in stores with this line so that way I could save money AND do my part to help empty the pegs but Hasbro's wave assortment decisions have completely killed that idea.:gen069:

    This is what I am going to do I guess. My local stores still don't have anything at all so online is my only real option usually. And in this case Takara is the cheaper way for me to get Airrachnid.

    Now that makes no sense. How are they going to short pack Arachnid and add a character that is not on the show and sneak in more Bumblebees with a new paint job. Whoever does the wave logistics need to be told in the face "YOU'RE FIRED!!!"
