This is actually some pretty good news to many who dislike exclusivity and find it an extra hassel to find certain figures. Takara has several news listings, where some figures are exclusive to TTMall while others are not. And what is super fun about this is that it is revealed that both Red Alert and the Deseeus Army Drone (that Siege Ironhide redeco) are not exclusives. Meaning that both figures which are exclusive in the West (at varying locations depending on your country) will be available at standard retail in Japan. So you'll be able to order them from HLJ or Amazon Japan. Of course, shipping will add to your cost, but this will definitely help in terms of finding toys you may have not been able to find before.

Takara also revealed that the Pulse Exclusive Beast Wars Ravage will be a TTMall exclusive, which is not a surprise, and it will be released in February 2022 in Japan. They also have listings for Studio Series Jolt and BB Thrust. That means we have more official images of Jolt to give you, which you can see below.

Here are links to the listings, though the TTMall channel is only open to Japanese residents.

Fudge my luck, I recently ordered RA from TT, as it wasn't listed at Amazon.jp (which is usually cheaper and actually accepts Japanese Visa-Debit/credit cards, unlike TT Mall)...

Any idea where on that Chilean website the figures were found? I can't even find an out-of-stock listing.

...well that seems timely, considering we were just ranting about bad/weird distribution. However, there appears to be an additional wrinkle here.

They were found in-person at the store the website is for, not online, which leads into that wrinkle I mentioned. The following is the Wave 4 Deluxe case they received, according to the the provider of this photo who confirmed with the store staff. You notice who's missing?

Looks like instead of pushing Blaster from Wave 5 up to Wave 4, they pushed Pipes and Slammer back to Wave 5 to join him instead. :(

Unless this is a different wave altogether.

What other wave would it be? I'm not following.

Also I meant to respond to this the first time:

Yeah the purple is rough but my biggest issue is with the bug head (eyes specifically) being inaccurate which leads to an inaccurate chest (it's not as bad as the images in the article though since they forgot a transformation step).
The bug head is "inaccurate" to Waspinator because it IS accurate to actual wasps, both in terms of the head shape and the wrap-around eyes:

Also I happen to like the purple wings, it reminds me of Animated.

It could be a repack wave, or it could just be coincidence those 2 toys were in stock as well. Stock from different waves can be on the shelf at the same time.

The pic of the bug you posted doesn't have the same venom like eyes as the toy so I really don't understand. Please post them side by side so that I can see what you refer to because I am not sure how it looks like that.

Also, it could be a 3.5 wave that appears in select markets. We don't know.

I guess it could be a weird interim wave, but I thought Hasbro stopped doing those, since the late TR and PotP waves got messed up by interim restock waves and they haven't done one since? Also the store employee specified that those four figures all came in the same case, so unless the store employee is lying or just plain wrong, these aren't leftover Tracks/Paleotrex's from earlier waves, that just is who's in Wave 4 whatever that wave is I guess.

Let me see if I can explain this better: the OG Beast Wars Waspinator has round eyes on the front of his head, right? I think we can all agree on that, but to illustrate my point, here's both a shot from Beast Wars cartoon and a pic of my soon-to-be-replaced T30 Waspinator, since it emulates the cartoon's bug head design:
Waspinatorhappyatlast.jpg
T30 Waspinator.jpg

Now, actual wasps have almost cashew-shaped eyes that wrap around the sides of their heads rather than sit on the front of them. To illustrate this, the same Google image result as before, as well as the Wikipedia image for wasp:
zoology-animals-insects-wasps-detail-compound-eyes-close-up-distribution-worldwide-animal-insect-X5T16K.jpg
wikipedia wasp.jpg

This brings us to Kingdom Waspinator, who, wouldn't you know it, has cashew eyes on the sides of his head, which shouldn't be a surprise considering it's well-established that Kingdom is doing realistic alt-modes over cartoon-accurate alt-modes for the most part:
Kingdom-Waspinator-05.jpg
Kingdom-Waspinator-04.jpg

Kingdom Waspy's head is also slimmer and has more pronounced mandibles when compared to the original design & T30 figure, which again matches the real animal.

IIRC, one of the leakers a while back said that there was a chance Slammer and Pipes would get pushed to Wave 5

Speaking of WASPinator's eyes, it follow Kingdom's way of having the most realistic beast mode possible.

For pure cartoon accuracy, one should buy/wait for the MP instead.

Thanks Nemesis Primal, I was not seeing the cashew like shape properly on the real life wasp.
And yes, odds are better that this is the 4th wave but I'd like some confirmation if ever I news it.

No problem! ;)^
And yeah, wanting to wait to news that makes sense, I just wanted to raise awareness of the possibility.

Thanks, definitely a possibility. Also would explain why reviews for these 2 deluxes came out first.

Question to those who have seen Rodinus at Target, how many boxes were there when you saw him and was he ever restocked? And was he just found at Target or Walmart too?

I've seen them 4 deep at one Target once, and 2 deep at a couple others. I have seen him restocked at a couple stores as well.

I saw a single Rodimus Prime on the top shelf at my Walmart as well, only once.

Target had him priced at $86 while Walmart had him at $80.

I've only seen one - at Target, 79.99.

I ordered and received my Rodimus Prime through Target.com, but I’ve never seen him, nor the Ark, in any store in the Twin Cities area. In fact, I still haven’t seen any sign of Kingdom Deluxe wave 3 here as of yet. I found them at a Target in Easton, MD while I was visiting my mom a few weeks ago.

I received my Rodimus last month from Amazon. However, I was looking at brickseek a couple of days ago, and it did show a "limited stock" of Rodimus at the Target closest to me, while I did not personally see it in store myself, I'm sure they probably got one shipment in. I've not seen Rodimus physically in any store yet. This closest Target to me is also where I got The Ark at the end of July, and I know they restocked it at least 2 times since then, which also sold relatively quickly.

Also it seems very likely that Pipes and Slammer got pushed back which is unfortunate, but would also explain why we've seen very little of them (one short video review of Pipes, and only a few pics of Slammer) whereas Waspinator and Shadow Panther had early reviews months ago.
