Default POTP Wave 2 Deluxe news

Hi,

Recently reached out to Hasbro Australia Customer Service about Wave 2 Deluxe availability and this is the response I received...


Quote:
Thank you for your enquiry.

The following assortment was sold into Kmart, Target and Big W in early July and we have no stock left.



We have a different assortment due in November that will also contain Snarl and Sludge.
Not sure about what else is included in the new assortment, I picked up a Rippersnapper a few weeks back at Kings Comics and was mainly asking about the Dinobot availability.

I know they were sighted in some stores but I've been checking fairly regularly in my area since late June and haven't seen any sign of them, pegs are still full of Wave 1 deluxes and look to have been restocked at least once or twice in that time.

Not quite sure whether to just suck it up and pay the extra for the Takara online or hold off and hope for a wider release in November. Also hoping to complete Abominus when (if?) Wave 3 lands.

So depending on how much was sent out either we got a small shipment of wave 2 that's clogged behind a massive wave 1 stocking or we'll see them soon, I already got imports to load myself up with just because impatience but judging from that email could be worth waiting.

As for dinobot its only gonna be specialist stores at best, I know a store local to me would most likely sell him but at $400 or something stupid, I honestly doubt we'll see takara mp's on retail shelves anytime soon

Edit:But if you mean dinobot POTP avaibility (which I think you did) they're part of wave 2's stuff and supposedly a later revision wave so hang tight

Wow, hasbro really knows how to cap off a trilogy

Personally I'm not affected (yet) I have two leaders on layby other than that I've been getting legends and prime masters but I can imagine the frustration that others might feel

Rippersnapper and Darkwind (and Slag) are part of wave 4 which is the final wave with new figures. I guess a wave 5 might be a repeat wave with Snarl and Sludge and Id guess Swoop (Ideally red-brested Swoop!) and Dreadwind. Maybe the other wave 3 deluxes and one of the fembots as an assortment of 8 x 1 each

I'm glad I got my wave 2 needs (Dinobots, Rippersnapper) from BBTS. Saves the messing around - worth the extra $ to not have to worry and chase.

I was also fortunate enough to have a friend pick up Sinnertwin, Blot and Cutthroat for me while in Anaheim; so the next wave is sorted, too. Hopefully we get them here though; Blot & Sinnertwin are really well done (Cutthroat is disappointing, but I'm happy to have the set personally) and I'd hope everyone gets access.

When I got the news that there was a problem regarding America's demand for wave 2 my heart sank knowing that Hasbro would prioritise them over us. So I'm glad there's now progress on this issue.

Don't stress they will turn up. I got them from kmart a few weeks ago, price matched to big w's sale of $24 a piece.

Haven't seen a single wave 2 deluxe figure anywhere. Sigh.

You're not the only one. Lirizen spotted wave 2 at Target in Victoria last month.
