We have some unfortunate news for those of you who have been patiently awaiting the release of Transformers Generations Deluxe Wave 3 (Rattrap, Tankor, Crosscut), it's been cancelled. Site owner Seibertron, and many of you reading this as well, just received the email below from BigBadToyStore customer service. The good news is all three will still be released in future waves. Hasbro has solicited a revision of wave 2 that will include Rattrap and Tankor. Crosscut on the other hand has been delayed to a future yet to be announced wave.

Update: Apparently Transformers Generations Deluxe Wave 5 has suffered the same fate. This wave features the highly anticipated, though yet to be revealed Arcee and Chromia figures. Again, Hasbro states the figures will be released, just in future waves.



Hello,

Hasbro has just informed us that the Deluxe Wave 03 Case assortment has been cancelled. This case contained Rattrap, Tankor and Crosscut. They have confirmed that all three figures will be released, but they will be spread over various future assortments. Hasbro has solicited a Wave 03 Revision assortment that contains Rattrap and Tankor and some Wave 02 figures. Crosscut has been pushed to a future and currently unknown assortment. We unfortunately will need to cancel your preorder for this case due to the changes. We truly apologize for this inconvenience. If you wish to order the Revision case, please see the link below.

I appreciate the communication, good to know they're delayed. Not even a little surprised.

Well, that's hardly surprising given that Age of Extinction has already hit the shelves (thank you stores for breaking shelf dates). Thankfully Hasbro has a backup plan for them, we just need to wait a bit longer.

Again, the Wave is canceled, but not the Figures. Just shouting that out to make sure everyone gets the message. >:oP

I posted this last month. Seems like this info is just now showing up with retailers.

So since they combined the recent wave with Rattrap and Tankor, we can expect to start seeing rats and blue tanks on shelves very soon?

I'm more annoyed by Arcee and Chromia than this wave. We haven't even seen what they look like, and they've been delayed. What gives?

Yeah, I had my doubts about this wave all along, as the only G1 character was far and away the most obscure, as well as it consisting of only 3 figures instead of 4.

Oh well, this is less a test of my patience than wondering if Waspy and Skids' original case and the Ruination wave will ever show up in the bargain basement stores.

Piss off...

:APPLAUSE: :APPLAUSE: Well said!


So... are future case assortments also going to contain a tube of lube or a coupon for a free drink at the local bar? Because, lets face it, this IS going to happen again before the year is out. :P

God Damn it. All I can hope is Hasbro follows through, and nothing weird happens like with that last reveal the Shield 2010ish wave. What the hell even happened there any way :HEADHURTS: ?

Hmm, I believe I third this sentiment? Because I echo it. Hell, now I've got doubts of these ever hitting shelves. Nice job, Hasbro. [sarcasm_on_full]

Man, seems like just as many toys get cancelled/postponed/not in your country/turn up later as TRU exclusive/etc. as actually get released...

Let's just face it. Nobody cares about Arcee. She didn't have a toy in G1, she had a couple of appearances in Transformers: Energon, she had limited screen time in Revenge of the Fallen and died, she had limited appearances in Transformers: Animated, and Arcee had a notable appearance throughout Transformers: Prime. A cancellation of her wave is something that people don't pay attention to. You can say that I'm weird, but I feel sorry for Arcee and all of the damages she's been through. :sad:

Bummer. I was hoping to see Rattrap sooner than later.

You haven't read the IDW comics, have you...?

I have read a few with Arcee, but the comic store 5 miles away from me has very little of Transformers comics. Plus, comics are hard to find. Arcee's activity outside the comics is looking bad though.

Yay! I'm nobody! (Hmm... Not sure how I feel about that, actually...)

I've been looking forward to some news on this figure, and "her wave is canceled" is not what I was hoping for. Ah, well, at least the figure itself is (supposedly) still to be released eventually...

Man, I just hope that the figure is a decent Classics style update of G1 Arcee, and that she isn't impossible to get. Animated Arcee with a new head is an okay placeholder, but I'd love a true Classics Arcee someday.

(Please?)

If bide my time I must, then bide my time I shall. Don't have much money right now anyway.
