I'm still holding out hope for a Carnivac repaint of Weirdwolf somewhere around wave 5 or 6.
I am very sad about the repacks in the Titanmaster class - just repaint Ptero's and Fangry's vehicles different colors or something. This is going to make getting Repugnus and Shuffler a mite difficult. I'm not going to sweat the deluxe wave - I think I'll be able to get Quake and Perceptor pretty easily (and Krok if he looks cool). Kup I'm going to wait on Takara for and I'm perfectly happy w/my MI Topspin.
Shuffler, Repugnes, Perceptor, Broadside, and Black Shadow are all I want. I might partner Broadside and Shuffle up.
Yes god, please cut Bumblbee and give us more chance to get gnaw or even kickback.
For crying out loud.
I think the strength and speed things will replace the Combiner Wars boxed sets.
CW boxed set is 4 deluxe ($17 each), 1 Voyager ($25), 1 legends ($10) = $103
Rumored new sets are 1 Leader ($45), 1 Voyager ($25), 2 deluxe ($17 each), and 1 Titan master ($5) = $109
Very close in value there...
Add me into the people who really miss the CW assortments...
Out of the listed figures, I need Broadside, Brawn, and Perceptor for my Lost Light display. I need Chase for my Minibot collection. I want Quake to go with my Club Spinister and Needlenose. And Repugnus and Shuffler to stay current with my Titan Masters.
Looked a few posts back. If THOSE rumours are true, definitely getting Nautica and no longer care for Brainstorm.
As for this, I expected it. Props to Hasbro for staying away from the redeco route in full this long, but we all knew this was going to happen. I'll have to see Krok before I decide, but not getting Quake. The other deluxes are an easy yes. I'll pick up the non-rerelease Titan Masters, probably skip Bee and go for the other colour (whatever his name is) and will hold out on Broadside until I see Tidal Wave. Black Shadow's an easy no because Overlord, but I may go Takara depending on how IDW they go.
And that about covers it.
5 deluxes in a wave? That's really odd but I'm not complaining.
Has this happened before?
Technically no difference in case assortment though. Still eight per case.
Not since Fall of Cybertron with the Combaticons and the Wreckers.
Out of this assortment, I'll get Broadside, Sky Shadow, and all the Deluxes except Topspin.
RID 2001 had like 5 or 6 in one wave (there was a wave with the 4 Build Team members, Stormjet, and possibly Mega Octane back in the day). Of course Stormjet was the only new figure, so if you mean 5 new figures in one wave. I don't think that's happened since the FOC Combiners.
Something like that.
Build Team came in in Wave 3 with left overs from previous waves and remained in case for the rest of the run. Mega Octane was added the next wave (4). The wave after (5) dumped earlier stuff and was Super Car Brothers + Build Team + Mega Octane, then the wave after that (6) dumped Mega Octane for Storm Jet.
Everytime I read Nightbeat in these announcements, I get excited, but then it's only the Titanmaster again... I have the head. I need bodies!
I'll be getting Skyshadow, Brawn, and Chase (Roadburn) from this wave.
Well, Nautica is supposedly only going to be available in a boxed set, so you can start your anger there
Yeah but so's the Voyager Op if you read the podcast rumours and look what happened there
while i appreciate knowing the assortments.......i'm sad we are not getting another dinobot head this wave......i wonder how many waves to expect?
The boxset Voyager Optimus could be using the alternate Star Convoy head from the leaked deco sheet last year.
Yeah, I'll go with that, that's plausible.
Gonna need to be a cracking deco or some very good other toys in the box to make me buy that toy again, couldn't stand the Voyager for a host of reasons.
This. I'm pretty sure the rumors even said it'd be using the Star Convoy head.
I'd love it if krok suprised us and wasn't a Skullsmasher redeco. He should turn into a spaceship - he was only called Croc because he kept one (Gotoraider). Either way, I'll get this as I've always been a fan of the character and original toy. His head was always quite unique though - I wonder if it will be able to maintain this?
