Always the way in this country.

December to February are dead zones for Hasbro stuff, which sucks since the new stuff launches for Xmas

One day Hasbro may learn ..

I don't suppose there's any possibility of seeing Slugslinger before then, or is the new wave (all repacks of older figures, Krok, Quake, Twinferno and Triggerhappy) that just dropped the last we're getting?

This news is highly annoying; I guess Takara couldn't figure out a way to take what was being produced and shoehorn it into the existing Legends line
Hopefully the missing Dinobots in the first wave mean that a Unite Warriors release is coming ...

Well they did say when traps came out the reason why there wasn't any difference is because declining sales and we should expect a lot more.

There's that and also talk of the Takara/Hasbro merger. Tinfoil hat stuff but it's a possibility that removing the variety is a way to minimize joint development and production costs.

Whatever the reason is, it sucks. Rod and Prime could've come out spectacular with the right colours.
