    Don't know if this is news, or if it really matters, but Diamond has listed a new assortment of Deluxe class repacks.

    1 of each figure from Wave 1
    2 x Highbrow
    2 x Chromedome

    Mods feel free to merge or delete if warranted.

    Cutting out the two 'Cons from wave 2 doesn't make much sense. But maybe they have done some quality control tweaks to the wave 1 guys and want to get them back out there.

    Fantastic. Now this news will turn Wolfwire and Mindwipe into "Hot RARE Items" online and lead scalpers to buy them up at stores.

    I guess I'll wait until they're inevitably repainted as someone and shipped back out next year.

    It's a revision assortment, they happen all the time. There was 1 for Legends wave 1 with 3 Stripes in it.

    They'll be another probably with the 2 Decepticons and all of Wave 1.

    There was a Voyager assortment a few years ago - T30 Wave 2, the one that introduced Sandstorm, which had about 6 revisions phasing in and out various FoC Voyagers alongside the T30 ones.

    It's slightly different than a revision case. Revision cases are usually listed as such, and Diamond doesn't usually offer revision cases. This is offered as a new assortment.

    I assume it's becuase wave 1 and 2 are out so early, Hasbro is concerned about having enough stock out at Christmas.

    I'm okay with this, considering my Wal Mart seems to have skipped wave one.

    Scalpers were always my complaint in collecting figures. I was always told that I was imagining it. But I've personally seen guys picking out certain figs and you can tell which stores they hit up. I end up ordering it online, which I hate doing cuz the markup is usually more than I like.

    I hope this doesn't end up like CW Air Raid. That figure was a pain to find.

    And this is why hunting for toys is no longer fun.. Pegs fill up with unwanted stuff and new figures are never ordered.. Or they are ordered but never make it to the shelves.

    I'm certain I'll never find marvel legends deadpool, I had a hell of a time find a couple Star Wars black series figures, and still have yet to see the marvel legends civil war wave. It's unreal.

    It used to be.. "Wait, you'll see them soon enough".. But it's no longer like that.. You either have to be there when the store opens, or pray that someone comes and buys the old figure that no one wants to make room for new ones.

    Buy all the older stuff and return it to a different store. I've done that with success.

    this x100000000000

    EDIT/Update: Just pre-ordered the set of all 4 wave 2 figures. I figure what i'm paying in shipping is worth not having to drive around wondering if i'll ever find them. And also the uncertainty of 'which assortment will the store have'... *TV salesperson voice* "and you too can have piece of mind! for only an extra $10 shipping!
