This means there is probably THOUSANDS of thundercrackers, wheeljacks, kups, warpaths and kups about to hit the stores world wide. eBay will be flooded with them.

Like that time Australia got wave 1 generations before the entire world as I recall. But yeh, generally we lag.

I'll believe it when I see it. Hasbro Australia has a proven track record of inaccuracy and giving quick, dumb answers just so you leave them alone.

Wow, this is interesting news indeed. When I see it, I'll believe it. For now, would someone please pass me the salt.

Wow this is great news (if true), now if only Hasbro Australia actually had a online store!

I was happy when I got the response I did from hasbro. To be honest I was half expecting them to say the wave had been cancelled for Oz or something like that. I've only ever emailed them once before regarding TRU MP Grimlock, and that time they gave me a straight, accurate response about its arrival time here. I'm holding out hope they're being straight now cos that would mean seeing these in store over the next couple of weeks.

Being a smaller operation in Australia, I don't think Hasbro would intentionally go about lying to customer enquiries, so when they have the info they will readily dispense it.

We get issues when Hasbro Aus doesn't know something, but try to help anyway by giving what info they think is pertinent. (Remember when Hasbro Au said we weren't getting Drift in Universe? Technically true, but was at the time in development, and ultimately released in Generations.)

My favorite was when Hasbro told us that the remaining Movie 1 Premium toys would be sold through www.CaseFresh.com.au:

http://www.otca.com.au/boards/showthread.php?t=1914

Every time we asked them about movie premium toys, we got a different response:

http://www.otca.com.au/boards/showthread.php?t=1242

"Hopeless" is an understatement.
