    Is "revision wave" another way of saying final wave? Because if so that means Australia will miss out on certain products due to our small market and I don't want to see either of these dinobots affected.

    The suspense is killing me... or did I miss the announcement?

    A revision wave is usually in between waves, in that it doesn't (usually) contain any new toys, but does mix up the assortment to include other older toys that weren't in the main wave. The master cartons also have an "r" number after the wave number - like, w4r1.

    This upcoming re-release of the Dinobots could be a revision case of wave 3 that includes some of the toys that are new to wave 3 (the Terrorcons and Firestar), or a "new" wave with all older toys (noted as wave 4 on the master carton), which is rare, as it is hard to sell a new wave to Retailers if it doesn't have any new product in it (they usually only do this when a series is more popular than expected, and Retailers are wanting more product of that series to fill the shelves until the next series starts).

    Do we know the reason why there was so limited supply generally? I believe the U.S. also had low stock to the stores. Yet wave 1 Deluxes are so abundant & clogging shelf space.

    Just to note from info we have:
    Wave 3 is Blot, Cutthroat, Sinnertwin (all new) and Jazz
    Wave 4 is Firestar (new) and Darkwind, Slag and Rippersnapper.

    Revision to wave 3 or 4 might see the two Dinobots re-released
