Entertainment Earth has listed the potential case breakdown for Generations Wave 8, which may include the Deluxe Warpath we recently saw prototype images of. No mention of the rumored Deluxe Arcee that appeared in Wal-Mart's computer system at the same time as Warpath.

Transformers Generations Deluxe Figures Wave 8
:

* Exciting Transformers based spanning the entire history of Cybertron!
* From video games, comic books, and the original toy line!
* Autobots and Decepticons transform from vehicle to robot and back again!

For millions of years, Autobots and Decepticons have waged war against one another for control of Cybertron. Today, you can bring home some of their biggest heroes with the Transformers Generations Deluxe Figures! These exciting toys transform from a vehicle mode to a robot which measures roughly 6-inches tall.

This batch of exciting robot warriors includes 8 individually packaged figures, including:

April huh?

I would guess then this would be the last wave before the change over to all DotM.

Hopefully Warpath won't be one of those impossible to find late wave kind of figures, cause he looks freakin sweet!

so whos bright idea was it to put 1 of the figure every ones going to be going after (kup) but 2 of the mold thats been repainted 9 times (thundercracker)? It should always be aat least 2 of each figure in a case none of this 1 per bullshit.

That's how it's always been. 8 figures per case, with the figures staying in 3 waves max, slowly phasing out. Thundercracker will go fast, since his past versions were all exclusives.

Warpath

I missed him by seconds he was in shopping cart and by the time I went thru the log in process he was gone! :BANG_HEAD:

Edit: never mind, he's back in stock for the moment, but be prepared for sticker shock! I went ahead and pre-ordered one, it will still be cheaper than me driving all over creation to find him.

Too Late!

I'm showing three left.

Either way, I've got him on pre-order with Wheeljack and Thundercracker for 44.99

That's 12.50 for Thundercracker and Wheeljack, and $20 for Warpath. Seems fair to me.

Because it's still a toyline for kids. Kids don't know kup, kup is one of the least released figures and may mostly picked up by collectors, who are the minority when it comes to buying toys.
Thundercracker is wanted by collectors and is one kids are familiar with. The characters colorings have been used often for the last few years. Saw him in animated, the WFC game.
If it was 2 kup and 1 thundercracker, kup would warm shelves and thundercracker would be hard to get.

If indeed we are getting an Arcee soon, she might be in a wave of RTS.

I am rather worried that these final wave figures could be quite hard to find, especially since the DOTM line comes out about a month after these are supposed to. I may never even see these in my stores, since most of the stores in my area are extremely slow. When I went to some last weekend, the only one that had any RTS figures at all was a Kohl's, and it only had two of the figures from the first wave (luckily one was Jazz, so I only ended up having to get Tracks online, rather than both).

Well, i went ahead and preordered the 8 pack from BBTS. I don't want to miss out on Warpath. Anyone interested in the extra Warpath, Wheeljack, and Thundercracker PM me and I'll get with ya on the price.....

I still haven't found Jazz or Tracks, though I saw a Mindset figure in mid-December.

And PCC combiners are all sorts of screwed up in distribution... wave 2 2-packs appeared once at two stores in town in mid fall, was sold out in less than a week, and until about a week ago, all I could find in CO, KS, and MO was wave 1 and 3. No wave 2 has started showing up again - but just one or two here or there. I found the Dinobots and Constructicons in mid December in KS, but haven't seen either since.

Weird.

But that argument falls apart when your realise that kids have had as much exposure to Kup and Warpath as they have had to Fallback, Mindset or Terradive.

It's plain and simple logistics, really. The first wave has 4 figures, so 2 of each. As the waves progress newer figures get added while older ones are phased out by lowering their number per case. Wave 8 will be the third wave and final wave Kup and Scourge will be in, and as a rule of thumb, figures ship for no more than 3 waves.

Except we're not comparing new characters to existing characters. We're comparing 2 existing characters. Kup and thundercracker.
Also, warpath was in WFC as a playable character.

Yeah! because its not like there's about 20+ online retailers we can get our toys from if we don't find them in stores!

I can't believe Warpath sold out at $25. That's nuts.
That said, I ordered the set of 3 with him, TC, and WJ. I can stomach $15 a lot better than $25.

Awwwe...Deluxe? I was hoping he was a voyager...

I'm not paying that much for a deluxe... maybe when my luck gets really crappy, then I might shell, but for now, I'm going to wait to see him in stores. I have a funny feeling he won't be liked that much by kids... but that matters little when the collectors here swipe these up faster than blurr with a fembot. :-B
