"TRU exclusive". *sigh* Guess it's back to online buying for me again.

24 blindbags, so there's at least another wave coming. Hope those 4 Dinobots are actual Dinobots, and not made-up Dinobots like Silversnout or Torosaur.

12 Customs, is that including the first two waves (Starscream, Bumblebee, Galvatron, Jazz, Predaking, etc.)?

I wonder how the magnet thing works. There didn't seem to be any obvious magnets on the Dinobots, though I guess it'd explain what those things on all the Vehicons' backs are.


No word on if Wave 4 is getting a release? BBTS cancelled preorders on them...

I like the fact that hasbro made all new characters for the microchanger combiners. good way to even out the autobot/decepticon ratio.

Plus grimstone :grin:

The complex/fully engineered Grimlock looks awesome. Nothing like the Grimlock I'm familiar with, but still goddamn awesome. Drastic redesigns can go either way, and I'd say this went the right way.

The flat-cab OP looks cool too, but at present I don't need another Prime, unless my old 2001 RID Prime finally gives up the ghost.

The rest of the fully engineered "Generations" stuff looks good as well.

The more simplified stuff isn't my cup of tea, but for younger kids I think they'll be great.
