    Allright! Time to start looking for Ratchet! :D  Kind of disappointing though that Hasbro saw fit to not include Windblade in this wave too.

    Thanks for the update! :)

    to be fair, she is just a basic repaint of quillfire with no new tooling. so folks that bought quillfire already may be inclined to skip her.

    I'm just glad Hasbro didn't shortpack Bisk, the one new mold, in this wave.

    Just picked these two up at the Boise Walmart, they also had Ratchet and Skorponok. Not sure if this is news but I think I saw Windblades wave is only just starting to hit so these guys are shipping in quick succession.

    EDIT: looks like I'm 30 minutes slow. Whoops. Mods go ahead and lock this thing up.

    Good to see they are hitting at various areas instead of just one localized part of the country thus far. Hopefully they will pop up here in Arkansas soon. :)

    Wave 8 sighted in Kearney NE. Bisk is surprisingly good. Be careful of his neck and the hInge it is on for transformation. Bisk's handguns are some of the best in years IMNSHO.

    Bisk is really really good. Thoroughly recommended. His transformation also gives him two options for arm articulation. You can either have the pincers vertically like he is in the packaging or horizontally with a functional elbow joint due to the transformation.
    I dont even collect this line, but Bisk is wonderful. Scatterspike not so much as none of the upper body seems to peg in at all for the robot mode.
