That would take a whole miracle considering these were never even mass-produced, much less even packaged. These eBay ones are loose factory samples.

I could, in principal, see the REGULAR versions showing up on this side of the Pacific eventually... Yeah, I know, it's wishful thinking at best. It sucks that they shelfwarmed in Asia while we never even SAW them.

But, then again, there IS another movie line in the works, and it wouldn't surprise me to see some redecos.

Remember the "rare" ROTF red Rampage and Evac that wound up in TJ Maxx ? Maybe these might not have been packaged, but the fact that these have such nice tampos leads me to believe there's a hidden stash in some warehouse. Maybe the guy only took a dozen so it wouldn't be noticed. I'm sure that Bumblebee will pop up soon as well.

Those were mass produced, and therefore could show up in stores. I even saw the red Rampage at Kmart and Walmart a few times.

These Soundwaves, however, are merely finished factory samples that aren't fit for brick-and-mortar standard retail sales. No mass production or packaging = no TJ Maxx.

I wouldn't so no to that. There are far too many molds that have been missed in the US market over the past 5 years. They've got to have something up their sleeves or else Hasbro just doesn't want to make money. I don't believe the latter so I believe the former will happen and in ways that aren't expecting. We've seen too many rules to "traditions" broken to count out opportunities like certain figures getting a release at some point that we never thought possible.

Well, I meant as the figures are now. If Hasbro gets on the ball and produces more of them and makes packaging and instructions and all that for them, then yeah I could see it happening.

Thing is, ever since Animated, the final figures of each major Hasbro toyline (minus ROTF) keep getting dropped or put on hold indefinitely. Animated, Robot Heroes, Reveal the Shield, and DOTM all had their final toys canceled. The fact that the Prime First Edition toys got a second run and that PRID Voyager Skyquake managed to get released at all are quite shocking.

I'm guessing the well has run dry at this point, as the seller hasn't anymore listed. I'd been keeping an eye on the auctions as I'd have bought a 2nd if I could have got it for a similar price to my first one so I could display bot and alt mode together. Ah, we'll at least I was lucky enough to get one :)
