The voyagers in the third wave of Transformers WFC Earthrise have been found in Canada and the UK. The two toys in that wave are Megatron and the Quintesson judge and they were found at EB Games in Canada, thanks to a sighting from Cybertron.ca, and at Smyths in the UK, thanks to a message from a fan called Tim who sent us an e-mail.

As for the US, well it has been a long time since we saw some new Earthrise deluxes on shelves. Well, we knew it had to come soon, after Target got their initial shipment and now it's happened. This wave with Arcee, Airwave, Smokescreen and Allicon was found in a Target in Pensylvania. They were found by a TFW2005 member called Worldsgreatest who posted on their boards.

If you have found any of these, please share your sightings with the community on our forums.

What also helps is that Eathrise Runamuck's car mode doesn't look any more "spot on" to G1 Runamuck's car mode than G1 Runabout's car mode. For instance, the front end of the car for the Earthrise mold is entirely different from either G1 toy. Runamuck shouldn't have any small side back seat windows on his car either, but they're there on the Earthrise mold, making it actually more accurate to G1 Runabout in that regard. Using one mold that doesn't particularly match either G1 car precisely is rather genius and cost effective. The different head sculpts, colors, and paint masks are plenty to differentiate the two now.

Of course, both are supposed to be more cartoon accurate that toy accurate, so can anyone dig deep and find the original Sunbow character models for Runamuck and Runabout? Were they drawn exactly the same way in robot mode (and/or car mode), but with different heads and colors?

I think i prefer the Generations pair. Don't get me wrong these look nice, but they are so blocky.

Is it pretty much assumed now that the Quitesson Pit of Judgment set will be put up for order once Pulsecon starts? We got tipped off on it weeks ago, and reviewers all over YouTube have gotten copies of it, but still no official word from Hasbro on how this set will be released. I don't want to miss out on it!

There was a leaked listing about a week and a half ago (I only saw it on a line chat I'm part of, it wasn't posted on a TF site as far as I know) and it called out the SDCC exclusives that would see release at Pulsecon, and the TF item on there was the Pit of Judgement. Said listing also included the ghostbusters Luis/demon dog set (which I'm hoping to get), some black series, some marvel legends, some power rangers, etc., and based on other fandoms and expectations the listing made sense and seemed legit.

What a long strange trip it's been, just to get Airwave

Pre-Ordered on Target.com back in March. (Expected 9/1)
Delayed to 9/14
Delayed to 9/18
Out Of Stock (sorry you can cancel your order and we wont charge you for it)
oh ok we found some more we're going to ship it
ship it
ship it
ok we have a label for you, It's a Fedex tracking #, but we're linking to UPS...
after copy/paste and running it through FedEx, It says the label was originated in York PA. usually Target orders for me come from OR or WA because I'm on the west coast. Interesting that this has to come from PA (the same state a s the first B&M sighting if I am correct?)
Are there no other shipments of wave 2 in the entire country???
still says I'm supposed to have it by 9/18, here's to hoping. :BANG_HEAD:

This was the only wave 2 figure I wanted, but man what a pain. I told my daughter if I ever saw ER Arcee in store, I'd get it foe her, at this rate I doubt that will ever happen.

Dude, stop trying to make any sense out of it, you'll drive yourself nuts (if you haven't already). Especially if I tell you I'm in Chicago and my 3rd Airwave is shipping from Tucson, AZ, while the other 2 came from Tennessee.

No clue how they are (dis)organizing things.

Hrmmm... I wonder if we can call Target corporate and have them redirect the one coming from AZ to me, and the one coming from PA to you.... ;) .

Reminds me of every time I see 2 logging trucks on the highway pass each other, what's that about. ;)

lol, that's the continual downside of pre-ordering from amazon, they just leave orders open after they run out of stock and assume they'll get another shipment, good luck getting them, they look cool

Yeah, I'm supposed to get them on Monday. If it doesn't happen, I'll either bite the eBay bullet or just say screw it and go without. I have the OG seekers set.

No clue how they are (dis)organizing things.

So, first step in the process is that Product goes from Customs to a Hasbro warehouse. No clue where that is, surely they have a west coast facility because most sightings seem to ahow up there, but Providence is a safe guess.

Once Hasbro has confirmed they got all of the cases from the factory and that a container didnt like fall in the oceab,, they start to fulfill the Target Orders. Its very likely those go yo a single main Hub for Target and then get broken down into regional Distribution, which then gets broken to a main hub for each State, which sends them to Hubs that cover the counties, then finally on to each store. It's POSSIBLE Hasbro has an arrangement with places to send to multiple regional hubs, but I doubt it.

Anyway, what you said is not far off: Target started fulfilling Air Wave preorders from whatever Warehouse had stock in first. In this case, it was York PA. Probably, York had stock first because it was closest to Providence. The Container full of Transformers bound for the other Warehouses, including the ones that your orders typically are fulfilled from, were probably either still en-route or hadallocated all of the stock to Stores first (I get the impression that Target stocks their store shelves first before filling Pre-Orser stock) when York popped up in the system as having stock.

I think by Sunday I'll have the other three Wave 2 Deluxes so Amazon is slowly getting back on track.

That would be a whole other exercise in frustration. Both of mine shipped Fedex and both arrive tomorrow. I live in the south suburbs of Chicago, less than 10 miles from the Indiana border. Both of my packages got routed through Indianapolis, then to a Fedex location in Chicago this morning, then to another location in Munster, IN where the trucks that serve my town come out of. Yep, they will have crossed the IL/IN border 3 times in under 24 hours on the way here. Same thing happens when I order from BBTS.

How many shipping warehouses does Target use? My Airwave shipped Monday from MA via UPS and arrived today. Allicon also shipped Monday from TN via FedEx and arriving Friday. Smokescreen and Arcee shipped 9/2 from IN via FedEx and arrived Sunday. They're really just coming from everywhere. For some reason the address label on that last one had the wrong city (Augusta) listed even though all of these are from the same order. Thankfully it still arrived fine.

I got the Allicon yesterday, and Airwave and Smokescreen today. Arcee arrives tomorrow. I thought I would be bored by Smokescreen, but it's much nicer than the Siege version. I have to get out his Siege shoulder cannons to see if the whole package works.

Target is just shipping things left and right as they come in, not filling full orders but just shooting product to people one at a time for some reason. I pre-ordered Snapdragon, the Quint, and Smokescreen all at the same time. Snapdragon came the beginning of the month, Smokescreen will be here next week, and while the Quint hasn't shipped yet I was finally charged for him today completing out the order.

All this is making me somewhat nervous for Ironhide/Prowl in November.
