    Next time I'm at TRU, I'll ask a friend who works there to keep an eye out and see if he can get a case-count by letter-codes. Should be A to L if they reset every wave, M to X if not... or maybe M to V plus two others if Prime and Bee keep their Series 1 letters.

    If one of us can get a look at a factory sealed case and finds a letter missing, it means No Sqweeks.

    Well, there is hope... unless it's from that weibo user who's been leaking images that would have to be from one of the Hasbro offices in Asia, before they hit release or even production.

    Anyways, here are some more photos of the second wave, and the 3-pack... for anyone interested.

    There is hope still, not shattered yet, and i envy you got all those ones. Btw has there ever been stuff that is really difficult to get a hold of? I have this impression that in Hong Kong you can eventually find everything you want, is that false.

    Didn't know that 3pack came with weapons, pretty cool. Drop us some pictures of them in use when/if you can.

    Thanks for pictures! That Optimus looks kinda cool, it has won me over.

    Here's a quick pic... with the rest of the Reveal the Shield toys so far...

    There are more weapons than Tiny Titan hands to hold them, so I stuck the extra sword into the back of Bumblebee.

    @griffin-of-oz None of your images are showing up, amigo. :( 

    I SOOOOO want them to do an Optimus Armory Trailer stocked with "Plenty Of Guns For EVERYONE!" as an accessory... and made so a new sculpt "first-three" Peterbilt Optimus can hook up to it.

    Other people can see them... I'm not sure what the problem could be.

    Dunno... for some reason that entire site times out from here in Seattle.

    I'm lazy so I'll just blame sucks-monkey-balls Comcast internet; everybody else doesand it's usually true.

    Yeah, that's sorta annoying. Sorta worried they'll come out and I won't even notice. But then again, I'll probably notice the sheer volume if they do a restock since the TF shelves near me are pretty barren.

    They still have more paint apps than a freaking Legion figure.

    You'll notice if you pay attention to detail--Series 1 is red dot at right corner, Series 2 blue.

    If you can FIND the damn thing... Series 2 is all but Unobtainium; around the Seattle area the only stores that've gotten 'em are a handful of Targets who've gotten one or at most two cases of Series 2 each. Series 1 has been Pegwarmers from Hell, and I've been looking for a Chopter for months. :(

    OMG series 1 is shelf warming like crazy. Most stores have 2 or 3 full boxes just sitting there. No sign or hope of series2.

    Over zelous on the expectations of the line perhaps, most people who bought series 1 have probably lost interest waiting for the next series... Great going there buisness people. :thumb  :lol
