They will be released individually, but from what I know, their instructions make no mention of the combining gimmick, while the gift set does.

Hell if I knew, I'm just as eager.


Ah, ok thank ya.

Funny, I had ZERO intention on getting these guys...then I picked up Sinnertwin yesterday; kinda an impulse purchase...

....AND NOW I WANT ALL OF THEM! :BANG_HEAD:

I haven't gotten any of them yet. I was looking at Hun-Gurr the other day before picking up FOC Kickback, musing which one was more a priority. Kickback won. These guys, if Blitzwing and Springer isn't released much sooner than expected, are my current priority.

Well done, Kickback is fun! Fun to pose too.

I get the feeling that once all 5 hits the shelves, people are going to come up with some clever ways to combine them....making them way better than the pictures suggest.

I wonder why they didn't put all 5 out in one wave like the FoC combaticons.

I don't know, but if I had to guess, they don't want five-figure waves. Wave one of BH Cyberverse Legion was four figures, Wave two was three figures, and wave three seems to be three fiures as well, if preorder info can be trusted, which it usually can.

If it seems that their in-store release is just going to drag on with no date in sight, I'll prob just order them online soon as I see them.

Ebay and random other sites always have these things before stores do. (at least stores by me recently)

Well the next wave has the last three figs, and some people have managed to acquire them already, so it can't be that long.

BBTS just sent me an email that the Cyberverse Starscream and Shockwave I preordered are in, hopefully this means Rippersnapper, Windrazor, and Blight are close. After all, Wave 3 of Commanders and Wave 3 of Legion should ship around the same time, right? *Fingers crossed.*

The last two waves, both sizes shipped at about the same time, so I'm staying hopeful and not letting you rain on my parade.

I'm just remembering last year, where we wound up getting wave 3 Commander and wave 2 Legion at the same time. Or maybe it was the other way around. Either way, they seem to be aligned this time around, so fingers crossed. ^^


Also, I don't know if anybody else posted this.

...Wait, you mean to tell me that is an OFFICIAL combiner? What the hell?! I thought it was a neat little thing someone did to the figures as a sort of fan mode, not intentional, holy shit.

As something someone came up with, it's nice! For an intentional mode... umm... no?

Crappy thing is that i can't find a Hun-Gurrr anywhere accept for ebay and it's going for almost 30 bucks after shipping. I suspect i'll suffer the same issue with the next wave and never see the rest of the team up here in Canada. If i have to buy the entire team online i'll be looking at well over 100 bucks for Abominus.

Why not just buy from a retailer like BBTS, CapturedPrey, etc...?

You forgot about the option of buying from a normal retailer? Not get enough sleep today? ;)

Hun-Gurrr was shortpacked in the only wave he was released in to date. As such most retailers don't sell him seperately, and those that do price him where it's better to do eBay.

I got my Hun-Gurr with Prowl and Soundwave from Big Bad Toystore, so I don't know a good place to get him on his own, but Prowl and Soundwave are both good figures too. Stil, it'd be nice if they shipped Hun-Gurr again in a future wave to make it easier to put Abominus together.

There's going to be a giftset for Abominus, y'know. ;)

I know, but it'll be a target exclusive with different colors, plus I don't think it'll be out until fall, if I recall correctly. And I don't know who's that patient.

Ah, okay. Nostalgia isn't really a factor for me with these guys, I just like the little monsters.

nostalgia is the main reason I want these guys. Only g1 gestalt I completed. BUT I don't see them on sale on either of my usual stores or even on ebay. (even internationally they appear to be in short supply. and I kinda grudge paying Voyager prices for each one AND THEN shipping costs)
assembling a Neo-G1/TF:TM cast. Please PM if you have (or know of) the following at a reasonable price: Classics or Henkei Astrotrain, Sunstreaker, Sideswipe, Blurr, or 3rd Party iGear Ratchet and Ironhide.
Also looking for Universe Repugnus and Overbite, Frostbite and Longhorn and any Webdiver toys.
