Do we know if it Jetfire is going to make it here? On the one hand it's the premiere figure in a new size class, but on the other it's bigger than Leader so it seems semi-likely to be deemed 'too expensive' and passed over.

Probably too early to say but betting on "no" probably has better odds.

Online PO's have gone up all over the place. I'm thinking about importing an Omega Supreme but will give MightyApe a bell to see if they'll import it in.

Right so i know a few people are worried about Wave 1, Mightyape still have wave 1 on preorder im sure if we wherent going to get it than that would have been taken down when they just added new bots.

Mightyape has just put up wave 2 for preorder along with Jetfire and Omega, so give it till the end of the month before you worry, you might find the reason why wave 2 stuff is coming out sooner as the boxs dont have a embargoment date on them or something silly like that

I’ve just had email confirmation from The Warehouse that they are only getting Wave 2 and Wave 4 this year for Siege.

Might have to source the Wave 3 elsewhere.

Their response:
“We’ve just confirmation from the supplier. Internationally, this SKU has set waves of characters (wave 01 to 04). The NZ supplier will only be releasing wave 2 (NZ Wave 1) in-store now and wave 4 (NZ Wave 2) September launch. “

So we're not getting Reflector? Reflector and Swindler are the only figures I really wanted (I still wanted Sideswipe and a couple of others we did get, but those are the two I was most excited about) and we didn't bloody get either of them. Hell, I wouldn't even have gotten Sideswipe if K-Mart didn't get those couple of cases of Wave 1 Deluxes in. That black hole NASA posted the other day is looking more and more inviting, there's no way the Transformers distribution in there could be any worse than it is here. At least we're getting Barricade I guess.

Makes sense, why get stock of the stuff people actually want? Cyberverse can fill all those shelves up with a hundred of the same unsold yellow bullshit just fine!

My local Warehouse has already sold out of the box of wave 2 Siege deluxes they got (and it wasn't by me, I purchased just the one I wanted in Chromia). You'd think that stuff would be higher priority.

It's really not as fun having to import everything, especially when the retailers have a whinge about unfair blah blah tax this etc. Well if the country actually stocked them I wouldn't have to, trust me I would prefer picking them up locally. :roll:
