Are you saying you only have one version of each character in your collection? Like, you only have one Shockwave, one Bumblebee, one Optimus, etc.?
That is a stupid rule, i learnt the hard way after missing TFA Bumblebee, Starscream, and Classics prowl, Megatron, Starscream... It took a great deal of effort to hunt back classics prime and bee, and animated jazz...
I think it's an admirable rule, one my wallet wishes I could stick to. Of course, even as I look around I can see a couple of Bees, and Megatrons and 3 Optimus Primes, and that's just the stuff I have out right now. I'm a bit of a sucker for different scales and styles at times.
Do sort of wish that if there had to be one short-packed figure in this wave that it wasn't Prime though. He's my least favourite (of this line, and possibly one of my least favourite looking Primes ever) and really, a lot of people who are likely to buy these figures likely already have far more Optimi than they do good versions of Jazz or Shockwave. Can't really blame BBTS for not wanting warehouses of excess Optimus Prime figures though, so the set thing makes sense.
Interesting point about there being no Bumblebee. He does look the same as the WFC one so it's sort of understandable that they're not releasing him this early. Wouldn't be surprised by a repack of the first version of him (with or without battle-damage) especially since that's the form he has in the current IDW comics as well.
