No one believed me when I said June, I always got a ”Nah, they wouldn’t push the movie line that long.” and now look, the little disgruntled animated hater was right!

I wonder what the wave one assortments will be though.

You've got to be kidding me. Do they really think that the premium movie figures are going to sell so well that they need to delay the release of the animated figures? Looks like we'll all be buying repaints until june.

Let them take their time. I don't care cause I realy don't want anything from this line.

To those who do want this stuff, think of it like seeing a wrapped gift under the Christmas tree, the suspense of what it's gonna be makes it all the better.

If this stuff was already out, you'd just be either bored or complaining about it (if not both) clammoring for the next thing!

Enjoy the wait, you'll apreciate the product more when you finnaly get it :D

So it looks like we can expect the first wave of deluxes, voyagers, and the 2-pack in June.

Unless of course they mysteriously and inexplicably get released before that. I came across this auction for a MISB animated Bulkhead... with reciept and price tag. Weird, huh?

I was hoping for an earlier release but at least in June the school year will be over and I'll have some summer job income to get more figures.

Isn't Sunday a weird day for the release though?

Its hard to make out anything on that receipt so it could be for any thing. heck it could even be just for soap or something totally unrelated.

Something smells real fishy in that auction.

That's the kicker--
The "Premium" line doesn't seem so premium...
And because the upgrades aren't anything impressive,
if anything, it's just a chance for people to get a fig. that they passed on the first time,
NOT because they're awesome figures.
Think of it this way,
Little kids, whether they pick out their own toys or not, are NOT going to want a new Jazz, just because the paint apps are slightly better.
I mean, a LOT of kids won't even see the "Premium Series" text bar wrapping around the bubble. They'll see the fig., say, "Mommy I already have that one", and move on. Their parent isn't going to say, "Well, look, there's something different about it though..."
A parent is not going to force a kid to spend money on something the kid already basically has, or doesn't want.
A lot of us older buyers are now too excited about the new lines coming out to waste money on another REGULAR fig.
In conclusion,
two words--

warm pegs

that auction is a bit odd, only $15 mark up on its retail price and a reasonable $10 ship. notice the price sticker is there on one shot but not the next. the receipt could be anything though. assuming this is not some type of scam (and im not saying it is) theres a simple explanation, a bulkhead did honestly get packed mistakenly?in a recent shipment to k mart!

i bet its legit, if the seller really wanted to screw somebody and risk his 100% feedback im sure bulkhead would be more expensive.

Hasbro is stupid. The show is on now. By the time the toys are released, they'll be into the second season.

Yeah, looks like it could be. You have to wonder what's up if toys are slipping through to release 4 months early.
