    Just had an email from my toy shop's wholesalers saying that Animated Deluxe, Voyagers and the 2-pack are to be released (in the UK at least) on 4th April 2008. The price list also mentions leader class Bulkhead and Megatron - not sure if we've heard of these before???

    Universe (aka Classics 2.0) deluxes are listed as having a release date of 9th May (just after my birthday, YAY!). Ultras and Voyagers are down as release date TBC.

    Good news. However this may mean that U.K. and Ireland residents hoping for Allspark Power toys may have to look elsewhere.

    On a site note: Retailer profit margins aren't as high as i thought.

    Back in ye olde times (1991) i saw documenation that my local toy store was buying G.I.Joe figures for half of what they usually sold for. Since then until now i was under the impression that retailers generally pay 50% or so of the retail price.


    Along with many other people i would guess.

    Um either there have been some changes but I thought Hasbro saith that there were only going to be basic and deluxe class for animated and basic, deluxe and leader for Classics 2.0??

    Hopefully things change but I thought Hasbro was very clear on that point...

    We were origionally told that Animated would be Deluxes and Voyagers, and that Universe would be Deluxes and Ultras, but some more recent things have pointed to the Animated also including 3 Leaders. This bit of news is interesting, especially since the only Universe toy that we've seen any physicall photos of is Onlslaught. Universe getting Voyagers is a nice surprise too. I'm curious as to what some of these new items will be like. Specifically the Animated stuff. Hopefully we get some official news from Hasbro, or something, about this (not that I don't trust the source, just that hearing it from Hasbro itself is a nice closure to the excitment).
