    So, the Dinobots are the villains? I mean other than Lockdown, there are no Decepticons listed here. If it's Autobots as the Dinoriders atop Dinobots against the Decepticons, you might think these assortments would have more than ONE Decepticon figure, right?

    Those are probably just Wave 1 case assortments. Remember for the last few movies, Wave 2 was released about the same time.

    I am still unsure if the Generations Movie toys are even still exclusive to ToysRus in the UK which suggests the Supermarkets will only get the kiddy Movie stuff - there's a horrifyingly expensive thought for UK collectors having to rely on a store that is much more expensive and regularly skips waves entirely.

    I've kind of half written off this new Movie line before it's even out as if I see any toys at all they will more than likely be the less interesting ones.

    -----------

    The To Many Bumblebees Issue can still happen if they carry him over to later waves and the Dinosaurs prove more popular than he does - over a period of weeks in a large Target or Walmart you will likely still get a glut of less desirable or over produced Characters and it will still be easy to miss the ones that only get released once - finding that right balance seems hard to do.

    Sometimes they just do damn silly things like sending most of the Longhauls to Australia for example.

    All the deluxe Dino's, leader Grimlock and Evasion Prime will be mine. I'm hoping Lockdown is a good figure. I'm crossing my fingers he has a gun that attaches to his face! I'm not too worried about the other side of Generations like Roadbuster or any of the other awesome things we saw at Toy Fair. The internet is a wonderful thing, and I'll just be ordering from there :D

    Well that was totally predictable from the product codes on the leaked listings.

    When Hasbro or Takara finally make a messed Black and scruffy Dinobot team or a G1 coloured repaint of all their new Dinobots - then I will consider myself owner of some AOE Dinobots - if all they make is endless slightly different Orangish Grimlock and the rest of the Team coloured like Power Ranger toys as an option then they will be repurposed as Beast Hunters Predacons which they look a darn sight more like than they do Dinobots.

    Though I suppose if I want to put my stretch the point to breaking hat on the crazy colours are sort of consistent with certain G2 version of the Dinobots.

    The persistently orange Movie Grimlock even looks a little like the Tiger Striped G2 Grimlock concept design. But G2 Movie-bots is a really really odd piece of Mental Gymnastics for me.

    So far we Know:
    Autobots:
    13 Toys for Optimus Prime
    11 for Bumblebee
    7 for Drift
    5 for Hound
    4 for Crosshairs
    3 for Stinger
    43 Total

    Decepticons:
    5 for Lockdown
    2 for Galvatron
    7 Total

    Dinobots:
    9 for Grimlock
    4 for Slug
    4 for Strife
    3 for Scorn
    3 for Slash
    23 Total

    I didn't include Kre-O, and a few other sublines.

    wer Battlers, Generations Deluxe, Construct-Bots Dinobot Warriors, Flip & Change, Mega Flip & Change, Construct-Bots Dinofire Grimlock, Then and Now, Generations Leader, Preview Optimus, and Construct-Bots Dinofire Grimlock. I also counted the Dino Sparkers as the rider and not as a Dinobot.

    Its good Optimus and Grimlock are packed 1 to 1. If it was 3 Optimus for every 1 Grimlock, fans would complain like they did with First Edition Prime Bulkhead

    I know right? I'm so proud of Hasbro right now. They actually learned from their mistakes.

    As I recall with the first movie (2007) not many people wanted the 76 Camaro Bee. They wanted the 2007 Concept version of him. So I suspect he may get a bigger chunk of the distribution in later waves.

    I know I will get some flack for this. ..but I hope evasive prime is a really nice movie version of G1 optimus prime. I would like to see a combo of G1 looks with the movieverse style.

    The Generations cases fill me with joy. Even numbers for everyone!

    Oh shit, I hope Chibi Drift and Chibi Lockdown aren't hard to find. Then again these are bagged figures so there should be plenty?

    If Seibertron is just going to copy and paste the formatted text on their news article, it would be nice for them to credit TFW2005.

    We've only seen wave 1 and wave 2 so far. Any chance we will see wave 3 before Botcon or during Botcon?
