Default Where's my Air Raid? CW wave 2

I've seen that wave 2 is out everywhere but the UK...any estimates on when we'll get it? Superior needs an arm...

Both KAPOW and Masterforce got them in stock last month and are now in the process of a restock.

For actual stores, no clue...
 

Few stuff in the UK to trade/sell. Measly sales thread.

Kapow and Masterforce had the US releases.

For UK retailers, the second wave stock should be arriving in late May 2015. Multilingual packs come with a trading card instead of the comics. It says here.

My Superion is currently standing on a shelf with one arm, waiting for his Air Raid. Although the second wave is theoretically out here now, I still haven't seen any of them on the pegs.

I can understand why they didn't want to have three Deluxe jets on the shelf at once, but I really do wish that they'd managed to put all four Aerialbots out in the same wave in spite of that. Though unlike most lines, the first wave of CW actually does seem to be selling pretty well and not becoming shelfwarmers around here (aside from that ghastly Optimus) so hopefully waves 2 and 3 will show up in good numbers soon.

Mine (ordered from Amazon.com) seems to be stuck in customs hell.

I drove all over Hull today looking for anything after wave one after I heard wave 3 had been spotted at an Asda just an hour away in Leeds. Nuthin, nada, Fella at Smyths said try next week but I'm not holding my breath.

I have found Wave 2 at Forbidden Planet (dot com).

Put in a pre-order for Dead End, Air Raid, Blackjack and Motormaster about a month ago as they had 20% off the RRP. Dead End and Air Raid turned up yesterday

Looking at the site, they're still showing as pre-order:

Good call on FP! Just put a pre order in with a manufacturer confirmed release date of June 15th!

If it makes you guys feel any better I'm in the US and my local stores are a joke as well. Sometimes we don't even get product in at all (like that Arcee/Ratchet exclusive wave from Animated).

So about that. I'm willing to bet that it's because about 3/4th of Air Raid is also Skydive more then anything. It would also explain why Alpha Bravo got pressed into service. Basically Hasbro/Takara have 2 deluxe jet molds for CW and didn't want to create any more. It wouldn't surprise me if we get random jet transformer decos of them later down the line just so Hasbro and Takara can use the molds more, kind of like redecoing Drag Strip as Mirage or Breakdown as Sunstreaker.

I've seen the wave 2 Stunticons (and Dragstrip w/comic) at Wal-Mart, but no Air-Raid anywhere. I ordered mine from Hasbro Toy Shop a month ago.

This wouldn't be so bad if all the jets weren't part of the same team. I'm still a bit bummed that Quickslinger is a straight repaint of Fireflight. Even just remolding the wings and nose would have been enough to give them different looks.

Yup. My order for Motormaster and Blackjack has been put back until August/ September thru FP. I suspect this due to importing stuffs. Not helped by Hasbro UK completely skipping Wave 2, I'd imagine.

What up humans. Figured this was as good a place to ask the question as any.

Regarding Combiner Wars Superion - can the legs be rotated so that the robot chests are facing forward, or does the set-up only work with the jet kibble on the shins?

Cheers folk.

I think you'd be able to put him together that way easily enough, but it would neuter his knee articulation.

Not expecting to see The Only Good Aerialbot anywhere near me. Somehow the Entertainer's offer of 16 [Vidiprinter]SIXTEEN[/vidiprinter] doesn't actually seem to have shifted any of the first wave.

Mostly neuter it. You can use Silverbolts elbows as knees instead, but that results in really short thighs.

This is pretty much exactly what happens.
