    Considering Hasbro reported a 35% increase in revenue in the boy's toys category in their 2011 financial report, I'd say no.

    Retailers don't want anymore movie toys because, as Hasbro said last year when asked about the RTS toys, they tend to order stuff much closer to when the toy line is new and most popular, then don't support it anymore once the new year rolls around. Basically, if it comes out in the first quarter of a new year and isn't a brand-new line that's going to run the rest of the year, retailers aren't going to be very interested in it. They'd rather wait and get stuff for the year's new line than keep supporting the one from last year.

    Really sucks for us consumers, because that means Wal-Mart is going to have crap-tons of the first few assortments and none/almost none of the last ones, and that's all they'll have for the line's entire lifespan. A store will only order [X] amount of total product, and the bulk of that amount is bought immediately following the line's release and the few months after, rather than spread out more evenly throughout so they get all the assortments. My local Wal-Mart is doing their reset now, and more than half the space is STILL earmarked for DOTM toys (can't even tell if they're going to put out RID stuff at all yet) but it's the same shit they've had since last July, almost nothing but their exclusive deluxes. Also find it hilarious that the only Movie Trilogy toy they wanted was the Optimus they already have tons of and had to put on clearance.

    I hope Soundwave and Que make it to Ross and Marshalls, I can forgive Wal-Mart if I can get them for $7 at those stores later. Movie Trilogy is dead, but I would think Hasbro had already produced the last DOTM wave for the US market, so they have to go somewhere. Sucks we don't get Evac, really wanted him, too.

    The Deluxe figure looks pretty cool, but in this color scheme, it's not a must have for me. I'll most likely get it if it's given a general US release, but I don't really mind otherwise.

    Weren't you, awhile back, only wanting the figure to be a ride exclusive because you live near a theme park and will have easy access to it?
    :inquisiti 

    Personally, I'd rahter have the legion figure. The deluxe looks good, and I'd like to see the repaint, but the legion looks better to me.

    The last wave of DOTM (Soundwave and Que) as well as the Movie Trilogy wave (Repaints/remolds of Soundwave/Wheeljack and Evac) are all not going to be released in the US, Canada or Europe. Hasbro made an official statement sometime last month saying so.

    However, there's a chance the last DOTM wave will show up at places like Ross. But Movie Trilogy is Asia-only, including the mass-retail release of deluxe Evac.

    Cyberverse Legion-class Evac will be in the Prime: RID line, so he will see release everywhere, don't worry about him.

    Definitely has an uncanny resemblance to Roadbuster, although we'll have to wait and see what the transformation is like to speculate more.

    Nice figure.

    By the way, sG_KYo, is that your pic or from another source?
