Hi - Here is a quick update from http://www.bigbadtoystore.com about
another batch of exciting new preorders, and a variety of new arrivals.

If you were unfortunate to have missed out on Classics Thundercracker
because of his Botcon-only status, never fear! Takara is releasing
special editions of Thundercracker and his fellow seeker Skywarp, and
we've got pre-orders listed for the set as well as each individually. Of
course these ones are likely to be chromed somewhere, but that's just a
bonus.

Great news and all, but it doesn't exactly specify *WHEN* they're arriving. Just because Hasbro is shipping them now, doesn't mean they'll be there in time. We'll see.
Re: BBTS to have Animated Lugnut and Grimlock Early (710841)
Posted by Tigertrack on May 29th, 2008 @ 4:57pm CDT
But the fact that they are already being shipped means BBTS should be able to send out Wave 1 and 2 Voyagers together, while the rest of us supposedly will have to wait until July or August to get them at retail--brick and mortar.

Actually, we will be able to get wave 1 and 2 Voyagers at retail when the line debuts.

Bulkhead, Megatron and Starscream are wave 1.
Optimus is wave 2.
Grimlock and Lugnut are wave 3 and due in August.

(I think you were trying to say we'd be able to get wave 1 and wave 3 at the same time? If not, then I stand corrected, wave 1 and 2 are coming June 22nd.)

June 22nd for Activators, Deluxe, Voyager. Waves 1 and 2.

Basically, what I mean is come June, if you have a pre-order for Grimlock and Lugnut with BBTS, IT LOOKS LIKE, you will be able to get them the same time everybody else is getting only the first figures at brick and mortar.

However, if HASBRO wants to treat everyone and release the first three of four waves in June to brick and mortar retail, that would be awesome!

Makes me wonder what HASBROTOYSHOP will be carrying, and when.

I'm not sure, to be honest, but apparently they've updated their shipment dates for Megatron and Bulkhead in the Leader Class size. 7/10/08.
