so we should be able to figure it out by now, or is it cancel?
Been wondering this for weeks now, especially since seeing the flick, wasn't surprised by any new bots or cons.
Well have we seen Deluxe Stinger yet? That could be one.
Or they could be redecos of older figures.
i had them on pre-order and my site said its out of stock, and they might have to refund me. cant if it cancel or its just sold out.
any update on these or are they cancelled?
why would they be cancelled?..
one of them has to be deluxe bubblebee
AD4 is AoE Classic Camaro BB
AD8 is HFTD Battle Blade BB
AD27 is AoE new Camaro BB
So it seems unlikely either of these mystery entries would be another BB. All I know is what sites have said and AD18 is a popular Decepticon and a Voyager and AD19 is a deluxe Autobot. The ETAs on the sites say this month which seems unlikely since neither has been revealed yet.
original releasy was in june.. but they have moved to july.. so who these guys are i dont know
I was thinking that since ad20-adxx were released yesterday, maybe their cross-sells would reveal these.
AD-18 could be voyager lockdown AD-19 is helicopter drift
We dont know. Smart money says they are/were intended to be reuses of older molds because their release numbers are closer to the Japan exclusive redecos/retools of older molds.
Because they were solicited to be released almost two months ago and we've gone through a couple conventions in Japan with AD reveals and no mention of these two.
My hope is the AD-19 might be Deluxe Leadfoot, the price tag is the same as the other Deluxe figures and we saw DOTM canceled figures coming out in the Movie Advanced (Dark Side Soundwave and Wheeljack). It should be just right to get the other cancelled figure resold.
AD-29 and 30 have a Voyager price for Dinobot and Autobot so I guess it's Slog and Drift.
I've been hoping-nay-praying that this is the case too.
This is the million dollar question. AD30 is helicopter Drift and we already have a boatload of Bee,so its not those two. I'm beginning to wonder if AD19 might be Rollbar. Maybe AD18 is either Stinger or Galvatron.
galvatron is ad27 so he is out.
Just a theory of mine with RK price tags (but it works also on BBTS prices, they're just higher):
AD-18 Decepticon A, 39,90 $: same price of AD-12, Voyager ROTF Optimus
AD-19 Autobot B, 26,90 $: same price of Deluxe recolors (except for Battle Blade BB), AoE Deluxes are at 23,90
AD-29 Dinobot B, 37,90 $: same price of Galvatron, Hound, Evasion Optimus and Grimlock. Dinobot A was Deluxe Snarl AD-28
AD-30 Autobot B, 37,90 $: like AD-29.
So, considering placeholder names and price tags we 'd have:
AD-18: Decepticon Voyager from old lines
AD-19: Autobot Deluxe from old lines
AD-29: Dinobot Voyager of new line (quite confident it's Slog we saw his model and Takara line doesn't have him yet)
AD-30 Autobot Voyager of new line (and that's Drift chopper, saw the Hasbro one, Takara still AWOL).
Furthermore, we have AD-01 to 07 which are AoE Wave 1 minus Grimlock, from 08 to 17 old molds revamped (with 18 and 19 unknown), 20 to 26 are Leader Grimlock (Movie accurate) missing from Wave 1 and all of Wave 2. Finally AD-27 and 28 are two members of Wave 3, which is missing just Voyager Drift and Slog (considering Lockdown AD-26 as part of Wave 2 or 3, on BBTS he's both in wave 2.5 and 3).
And probably there will be AD beyond 31 for future mold/recolors (Ultimate Leader Optimus is 31) and a possible Stinger Deluxe (unkown its existence), Rollbar and Hot Shot would come as after 31. It's quite odd you put a new mold with an"older" number.
That's Bumblebee V2, Galvatron is AD-22.
Still nothing? But you can preorder these two on many places so they could be released some day.
I know I keep checking BBTS to see if my pre-orders are still open. But since it's been 3 months since they initially went up and there has been absolutely no mention of who they will be from neither Takara or any online retailer, it would not surprise me if these two do end up being cancelled. Especially since we are way past those in the numbering scheme and up to AD-30 being out.
I do plan on keeping my pre-orders open at BBTS until we do get an announcement though in case they do end up seeing release and they end up being something awesome, especially that was never before or very limited in release before.
I just got bored to wait and hope one was Deluxe Leadfoot so I paid quite a bit for the DOTM on Transformerland and stop caring for those two ghosts.
