I really hope they'd release these. I can't wait for the movie figures to come out but before they do I hope to see wave 14.

It'll follow the same route as Transformers Universe. Right before the movie toys were released, all you could find on the pegs was Mirage pegwarmers. The line went away during the movie toy onslaught, and then re-asserted itself later.
I'm thinking any day now the movie toys might start showing up. Does anyone know if Hasbro offered an official release date for them at Toy Fair?
I think the Arctic HISS and Stinger will be released in movie packaging. The FLAK/CLAW might get released, too, with different action figures.
I'm also predicting that, to fill the pegs, Hasbro just sends out remixed case assortments of older 25th/Moderns for a couple of months 'til the movie toys start to show up. Either that or everyone will be overrun with the Duke/Scarlett/Roadblock recards.

She got it right many posts ago.
Alley Viper attached to the Strike Team Urban Division 82nd.
Cobra wants you! I'm looking for some ruthless Vipers to fill the ranks. Joes need not apply.

Although there is no official confirmation, it seems that the upcoming singles, vehicles, & comic packs are canceled.
Retailers don't want them, they want the new Movie stuff, & Hasbro will give them what they want. Expect shelves to clear & a drout on Joe in the next few months besides the already released 5-packs, DVD pack #6, & revision assortments.
Plus online exclusives like Hall Of Heroes & the 7-packs.
Hasbro will just rest in the existing tooling etc. that has been made. And then most likely the canceled figures from the upcoming assortments will be held up until after the Movie, or be issued as exclusives through other outlets while the Movie is in full swing.
I expect Hasbro to give us some official answers soon.

I have absolutely no interest in any of this movie crap so as a result, my collecting will go on hiatus too. After all the kids forget about the movie and all of this garbage is falling off the pegs (probably this time next year), Hasbro will surely realize their folly and crank up the classic stuff again. and I'll be waiting.

I saw the carded figure art of resolute storm shadow too.
It looked so badass.
I woulda thought they'd still release the resolute figures though.
A bit of a shocker.

I posted this in another thread. I believe we'll see vintage style stuff in the future after the movie run. Just like what they do with Star Wars. They still release vintage style SW with stuff from the newer movies and cartoons.
