    I have elected the choice to not pre-order any of the wave 2 figures. I have been burned way to many times by Walmart when it comes to pre-orders, especially on toys.

    I’ll take the gamble of hopefully finding the few I want in stores. If not oh well.

    Well that didn't turn out to be entirely accurate. Soundwave, Elita 1 and Bumblebee aren't just repaints ;)

    My local Walmarts were really good about stocking (and even re-stocking) the first wave so I'm not too worried, I'll grab them in the store to avoid a Walmart preorder fiasco.

    Way too many for Shockwave.

    I mean...it could be Nemesis Magnus.

    Depending on how they do step counts, you've got "34 steps" to get from the car carrier to full bot.

    Maybe it's Earthmode Magnus?

    I think Shockwave was 27 or 28 according to the item description on target. Optimus is 35. I'm hoping it's a Nemesis Prime but either way I'm not buying until I know for sure.

    I e actually been seeing the Netflix stuff pretty frequently at Walmart so I'm not going to stress it. Wave 1 is kind of meh for me aside from Meg's but holy shit this next wave of stuff is fucking killer. Gonna be a real Battle to get that Soundwave...

    Astrotrain is 19 + 17 = 36
    OP is 35
    Shockwave is 28
    Doubledealer is 20 + 37 = 57
    None of them are 34.

    Man, I just did not pay attention to the pre-orders, all I wanted was a Soundwave, which everyone knew would sell out the moment it was announced.

    Ok 1/3 look good here. Elita-1's head looks terrible. Soundwave is lazy - that detailing on the sides of the tape deck should be on the inside.

    Bumblebee looks amazing. It's nice to have not only a VW Bee again, but a decently realistic one. Either an extensive CLiffjumper remold or using the same engineering, but it works. He may transform basically the same, but he's distinct enough that he doesn't just look like a Cliffjumper in yellow. Looks like I might be picking up another Bee.
