    Do we know if this is going to be the new 'Movie' version that TRU US is apparently getting too yet, or is it just the original that has presumably been shipped over by tiny birds with each individual component strapped to a foot?

    Its still not known for sure, but he's suppose to be in the warehouses at the moment, so that'd suggest it will be the original

    Australia got the Euro exclusives too and currently the only thing we're get screwed on TF wise are stupidly high prices and some Alternator problems. Woot. Still, I do feel sorry for the uk peeps.

    Haha!

    Problem is - certainly in relation to 20th prime / masterpeice convoy - most of us already have!

    Still - £49.99 is the same as I paid for my masterpeice convoy - I wont swap! (well maybe the guns).

    Yup.
    A LONG time ago.
    Congrats on your on-the-ball-ness, Hasbro UK. Try harder next time.

    yeah, i've had mine for almost 2 years as well. i'd think most who care in the uk will have one by now too...

    i guess any person who like tf's but isn't a big enough fan to import might see them and pick one up. damn i miss my primes gun. maybe my cat ate that as well.

    Just for sake of completeness, I believe these aren't Hasbro UK releases, but grey imports by TRU themselves. Hasbro UK still don't know what to do two years later.

    Funny how the SW department can get the SWTF's out fine, but the TF department? Doesn't know it's arse from it's elbow.

    I love anything that exposes the idiocy of Hasbro UK.
    Not only have TRU UK managed to relase a toy they couldn't, but they have kept the price around the same as that in the U.S.


    I may go up to Belfast to buy one, just to spite them.

    Surprised they aren't waiting until closer to the movie, really... then again the movie was going to be this year before being moved back, wasn't it? Could be old paperwork that went through.
