    At times like these I curse Cardiff for moving TRU to the most obscure place they possibly can. No stores near me whatsoever :(

    Got mine, yayz! :D 

    There was only two cases, one was all but empty, and now is. The other was sealed. They were both on the floor, I only just notcied the flash of red at the corner of my vision and almost walked away dissappointed.

    I didn't speak to any staff members, it was already 8pm so not many around.

    Edit: This appears to be the american version, no multi lingual packaging and an advert for the collectors club on the back. I havn't checked the dvd yet to see what reigon it is.

    Well, I'm noticing that the box in the photo does have a UK-specific BBFC PG logo on it, but then it seems to have classifications from a few different countries' ratings boards on there...still, I wouldn't imagine the American ones would bother putting the UK PG on there, would they?

    Let me get this straight.
    Tru canada gets animated deluxes nationwide early.
    Tru u.k. gets the 2-pack and the rest, soon, nationwide early.
    Tru u.s. more movie recolors.
    I feel like we're missing something but i can't put my finger on it.

    Oh yeah, ...ANIMATED.....U.S.....PLEASE....

    Has anyone checked Tru u.s. computer for info.

    It has UK and Australian contact details on the bottom, not a sticker, printed on to the box.
    The dvd is region 2, I dunno if I can be bothered to watch it though, it's literally only the first episode and I have every episode aired here at my fingertips. :lol

    I see you're in Kent like myself, the one I went to was the Chatham branch.
    It's always very well stocked with TF's I find.

    I thought it had already been established that we were getting the Animated stuff earlier than the US for a change. Why the surprise?
    Or was that the Universe? I forget...

    What you talking about mid-90s? More like mid-80s. We may have had pretty much simultaneous distribution back then, but we still missed out on a hell of a lot of stuff (no Swoop, Deluxe Autobots and Insecticons, Trypticon etc)...

    Very wise, lad. ;)
