Have you got your Deluxe Groove yet? No? No worries because everyone who wants one for a fair price will get one ... by the end of 2016. Site Sponsor Ages 3 and Up got back to us when they received more up to date information:

Just got some information on this, the 1st release of this figure was basically only made available to Toys R Us and Hasbro everyone else was allocated ridiculously small numbers. We are going to do our best to get it in so if you want to get it from us keep a close eye on the site this week and we may have it in a small quantity. But good news is we are getting a ton of them in for the second release in October where there will be no shortage in quantity and it will be less expensive than this time around.

This wide October release was hinted at with preorder listings from Entertainment Earth but now we have a confirmation that it will be for every retailer carrying this figure. The comment on Toysrus is interesting, and it could mean that Toysrus will have a prioritized "early" release of this toy though there are only a handful of days left in May, so I would take that with a grain of salt. What is important here is the reassurance that everyone who wants a deluxe Groove will get one. Now the question collectors have to ask themselves is whether or not the current inflated prices are worth getting this figure now rather than later (rather than it being an assurance that they will get the figure at all). The good news is that those who do not want to pay inflated prices do not need to and Groove will indeed be as wide a release as Quickslinger and Breakneck were, only in October rather than in May.

Let us know how you feel about this on the boards and what you will be deciding as your course of action to acquire this figure. Which is more painful, the wait to get this figure at its regular price, or the possible regret of spending about 10$ more than the price it will eventually be available at?

We invite you to take a stroll down Seibertron's gallery of Groove while you ponder this decision.

HA!

Nice! Way to stick it to all the scalpers :michaelbay:

This is exceptional news, I will gladly wait until October to get one if I can't get one for a fair price before then, can only hope this is actually true, and doesn't end up screwing over us fans who are patient.

So does this mean that hts is likely not going to get an early allotment?

Yay or nay???????

Well from your other posts I can tell you're getting the UW set and you strive for cartoon accuracy over anything else.
I guess all I could really recommend for you in your case would be Vortex because the colours on UW Vortex look a little... weird in their placement, and Swindle because who doesn't want a standalone non-combined Swindle
Honestly I have all the CW Combaticons aside from Vortex - and even then I've got Alpha Bravo who is literally the same in every way aside from colours - and they make a wonderful little unit. The only real problem to me is Blast Off's head. It's also fun if you have a lot of spare weapons lying around and you can really militarize 'em; I gave Classic Optimus' smokestack gun to Swindle and it somehow works really well, and the smaller Leader Thundercracker guns to Blast Off. Then I put Blast Off's normal gun as Swindle's arm cannon because his usual weapon is way too dinky... I dunno, I just really find throwing a ton of weapons onto the Combaticons really fun.


I actually like the colors of UW Vortex. But I agree about Swindle.
Don't mind the Hasbro Blast Off even though a better headsculpt would've been nice...
I'm really only considering this because I've already ordered a Hasbro Onslaught from TFSource, and the price is right at HTS.

WJ88-- The price would total around $80 before shipping from HTS... If that May code still works, that won't be too much anyway.
With more than half of my collection, I have one opened, and one MISP figure...
Although I'm not really doing that with CW or UW... That's just too much $$$ plus I'm getting what I want as is.
I have both versions of Menasor... Which I'm okay with, and think it was the best option of any of them because of how awesome UW Motormaster is imo.

The only limb figure I don't really want the Hasbro version of is Brawl...
Does it make sense to only get 3 of the 4 though???

Well, I wrote to them as an interested customer (which I am, I would buy from them if I could) so I dont see why they would lie to a potential customer. I will be waiting, unless I can pick it up at toysrus for the retail price.

A lot of the later version brawls have no issues, he ended up being my favorite limb of the set, my swindle is fraught with miss-measurements, so he'll forever be a disappointment to me, and Onslaught is a joy to transform - I have no idea why :DANCE:

Just airing my concerns, I doubt its a lie, but something could always happen, but if they've produced that many figures, they'll have to be sold somewhere at some point :DANCE:

You're always trying to sway me into more purchases... First Defensor, now Brawl! Haha

So you would just pull the trigger for all 4???

edit: I don't have Alpha Bravo, and I'll only have 1 more of the Hasbro Blast Off mold once I get UW Superion.

Well, you asked for opinions... And yeah I did get them already, got 'em from hts the first day they popped up there. Blast-off and brawl are great 8-)

But would you buy the 4 limbs if you had the UW version on preorder...
Again, I am getting the Hasbro Onslaught no matter what.

Hmm, if you have to money to spare for 'em, I guess I might, maybe just get Blast-off then, he's so great - and looks gorgeous, otherwise, I guess I'd hold off on them Image

I have the unite warriors version on pre-order and still bought Hasbro blast off and vortex because of how different they are. The others are different but not enough to warrant getting as well.

One thing I was considering if I opened both sets:
Bot modes-- Hasbro Onslaught and Swindle, UW Blast Off, Brawl, and Vortex.
Combined Brut-- UW Onslaught and Swindle, Hasbro Blast Off, Brawl, and Vortex.

The $$ isn't a real issue... But as I've said before, I get buyer's remorse so stupid easy...

edit: now I'm thinking I'm either getting all 4, or none of them...

I'd hold off on getting the others then and just get Blast-off, unless you definitely want another set to display separately, they're really nothing special

I searched for Groove on Amazon.com after seeing a post here saying he was available (with picture to proove it) and I couldn't find it? Anybody else looked for him from Amazon and couldn't find him?

I was periodically checking amazon and HTS the last few days and saw he was available on amazon (from amazon, at regular retail price). I managed to order him, he was available for about half an hour after I got my order in. Now it's just third party scalpers.
