"An exciting new product reveal," eh? I'm guessing it'll be official pics of the female Combiner team.

Huh, go figure. Is it more of a UK thing? My biggest knowledge of EE was from getting magazines when I was younger.

May 22 – AERIALBOT QUICKSLINGER and STUNTICON BRAKE-NECK will be available exclusively through participating online retailers, such as Amazon.com, Walmart.com, Target.com, ToysRUs.com, Entertainment Earth, BigBadToyStore, Diamond Comics and Hasbro Toy Shop.


Maybe I'm stupid, but does BBTS not have these up for preorder? I've been looking every day for weeks and never seen them go up.

The post says they will be available May 22. So I am sure they will have them on preorder soon. At least we know they WILL have them for sure.

That was my first thought as well.

I sure hope the May-hem includes plentiful and quick release of the Wave3 CW figures.

Right now it looks like the only thing I'll have to look forward to in May is the fact that BBTS has finally said they have the "Not Onslaught" Warbotron figure in warehouse, so I can at least get THAT combiner completed :)

When exactly are the W3 figures supposed to be in stores? I hear some saying 'early may' some saying 'late may' some saying 'late June' - which is correct? (and no, I haven't gone through Amazon or BBTS for these, so saying when THEY have them available doesn't count)

Sorry to sound like a sour whatever, but is This May stuff supposed to say something?. Big reveal? Comic 41? These happens monthly. Are there supposed to be something I'm looking forward to?

I was really hoping there would be ways to get Slingshot and Wildrider (yes I'm sticking to those names...not because I'm a genwunner but mostly because that's just how I know them) individually so this is EXCELLENT news. :grin:

They're all correct. They're also all wrong. There's no way to tell, they just show up when they show up. If they even show up at all. Modern toy distribution. :DANCE: :BOOM:

I wonder if Canada will see a release at the same time. I just managed to get the wave 2 deluxes on the TRU website today, so I'll be pretty surprised if these two show up soon.

So does that mean Quicklsinger and Brake-Neck aren't technically part of any wave or do they just gave shuffled in with waves 1 and 2 when it comes to proper categorization?

Also, if we've invited to combine together, we ought to determine who becomes what of the resulting gestalt entity. I call the clavicle!

I'm sorry, but Quickslinger aka Slingshot and Brake-Neck aka Wildrider doesn't appeal to me.
Just repaints of previous figures in the line, and they don't get to keep their G1 names?
Pathetic.
Just another cashing in without making any effort to retool or create original designs.
At least give Brake-Neck a different weapon.
And the name... it suggests bodily injury.
I'm happy with Alpha Bravo and Offroad.
