    Soooo....that means Nemesis Prime will be a regularly stocked item over there?

    That's just Prime. The only Alt. I don't have, and it appears that I'll not get him for less than $60.

    Thanks for the news Nevermore, er...Henry.

    I half wonder if we'll see him in shops over here at this rate. Hasbro UK is anti-repaint, though, since usually if we get one version of something we never get the other one (for example, Beast Wars, Wolfang, Tigatron, Buzzsaw and the other repaints never saw a release, while practically every other toy in the line did. We've also never had a good number of repaints larger than a basic from most lines since then)

    So Hasbro can't get some limited number to fans here with any reliability, but they can just toss them all along the Pacific. Sweet.

    I've got one, but I paid too much for it.

    Well, isn't that a slap in the face for the US Alt Fans. Gee I only had to spend $110 to get two and they will be able to get them at retail. How nice for them.

    Not having access at retail to a TF they want is a dilema many international Transfans face almost every month of the year. Be thankful you're not at the mercy of the lottery that that determines Hasbro's distribution outside of North America.


    I wonder if it's overstock resulting from the toy (reportedly) being a shelfwarmer in Asia?



    It's a bit O/T bit Wolfang WAS released by Hasbro UK, just in very very small quantities.

    doesn't that make it well under 40 because of the exchange rate?

    THat may be true, however it still SUCKS. I assume hasbro thinks it is ok because, hey we sold it at SDCC and HBTS, too bad such a limited few actually got one from HBTS. I was on all day refeshing and never got one. I had to resort to Ebay for one of those asian ones and BBTS.

    I'm very thankful. Every day I find what I'm looking for. But common sense would tell you that Hasbro should release there items in America first. That's where the parent company is located. No different than Sony releasing the PS3 first in Japan. Or any other local company releasing a product in their local market before the rest of the world. Am I saying that they should not release their items in a timely manner to other countries? Of course not. But don't make it sound like we're being unreasonable.

    I was wondering about that HTS situation the other day. So many of us got screwed on that, and they said that if we wanted one, we had to reconfirm our orders.

    I know I didn't, because I got one off BBTS. So how many people actually did reconfirm their orders? It'd be really funny if they did a second run only to have all the orders cancelled on them. And have to release them in Australia instead.

    Why $60? If you buy it from casefresh, it'll be just above $30 USD ($45 is in australian dollars) and add maybe $15 shipping (I'm guessing) to that and you can probably get it for about $45 shipped.

    hahaha this is funny!! But good to see for once they actually make stuff accesible to people OUTSIDE of the US. Although I could be bias as I was one of the few who was able to get one from HTS.
