Did I read that right? TF Prime toy line not available at retail stores? That doesn't seem like a smart move on Hasbro part...

Get your orders in before the scalpers. The secondary market is going to skyrocket.

Great, so if I want Megatron and the kids, I HAVE to get the deluxe Prime? Which then makes Megatron a deluxe only as well?

Maybe just get the deluxe set of four and the two Voyagers and hope Megatron gets a Voyager release later.

I'm going to wait for the eventual, inevitable Voyager Megatron to go with Prime.

If someone doesn't want the human figures, I'll gladly buy them from you

That can't be correct. Maybe BBTS is just trying to goose buyers. :???:

These will probably show up in droves five months from now, just like the Generations figures.

I think that just means these are getting a limited early release. There's no way that Hasbro will not release these en mass by Feb.

The Generations figures NEVER made it to my area in NW Ohio, except for a small chunk and they sold out FAST.

I'm thinking if these are limited, BBTS might be the best way to go.

That's a load of crap!

It'd better not be right...I'm not paying 60 bucks just for those two voyagers that should be readily available for 19.99 each at retail. >.>

That's my gamble too.

Or maybe Hasbro decided if the cast was getting upgraded toys anyway, they're ditching the First Edition line to a market that will have an easier time getting them to people. I don't know about you, but retail is terrible in my region.

I agree, but they've been teasing the release since at least June. so it really would suck if they led us on all year, then "Whoop, just kidding, we're not actually releasing them!" :BANG_HEAD:
Maybe Toys'r'us......

I want this line, but not enough to pay that much of a premium for it.

I think I'll be holding out.

This is a load of B.S. Hasbro isn't stupid; they now that most of their sales come from parents being harassed by their kids into buying toys. Where does this harassment take place, at the Targets, Walmarts and other toy stores of the world. We collectors make up omly a small portion of total sales. More than making collectors happy Hasbro wants to make money; they're a bussiness for Christ's sake. Releasing the Prime figures only on an obscure website (maybe not to you and me, but to much of the general consuming public) make no bussiness sense. I'll say it again; Hasbro wants to make MONEY,it's their job.

So basically what you're saying is the same toys will still be available at retail cept without that lil "Good Housekeeping seal of approval" that is First Edition?
