BBTS Newsletter 6/16/2008

{mosimage} Allspark sponsor BigBadToyStore has sent out its latest newsletter, and it has a couple of interesting Transformers listings in it. First is the pre-order for the Diamond Select Jetfire bust. You can see the listing for that right here. It features the cartoon ("Skyfire") version of Jetfire thawed and ready to fight!

Perhaps more interesting, however is a listing for Transformers Animated Activators Wave 3. This wave will be comprised of two repaints; Patrol Bumblebee and Thundercracker! While no images are shown of either figure, there was a Patrol Bumblebee on display at Botcon. Click here to see the pre-order.

And lastly, they've gotten in a supply of Titanimus Series War Within Optimus Prime vs. Megatron for those that missed it. Click here for that listing.
