    If they rerelease the First Edition line, I hope we get first dips in the US, just like how we got first dips with the Cobra Starscream and deluxe Prime Optimus.

    US didn't get them and that is a much larger market. So I'd say No.

    In 2009 the population of Europe was estimated to be 852.4 million according to the United Nations,[1] which was slightly more than 13% of world population.

    according to wikipedia including Russia at 150 mil

    USA has roughly 300 million people

    But USA may have a larger Transformers fan base I dunno.

    UK has already gotten the "normal" Prime line, so I view it as extremely unlikely First Edition will be rolled out at this point.

    We might get them, but there's a 0.01% chance of it happening :( 
    And first dibs!? Dude we didn't even GET Cobra Starscream or deluxe Prime in Europe.

    Europe isn't a country in itself?

    I mean, it would help if they at least put it on a map sometime.


    *utter confusion*

    Oh, I see. Then whats that big blue thing I can see on the globe? I can't tell, sometimes it says it's 'Atlantic' but the same one also says 'Indian' and 'South China'.

    WTF are all those places?

    Hahaha, this reminds me of a really silly debate on another forum that went along the lines of this...

    Everyone knows Hasbro hates Europe and that Hasbro especially hates the older European fanbase with all their disposable income who would love nothing better than to be able to buy Generations and RtS Transformers and TF Prime (FE or not) and Masterpieces. Hasbro is always happy to DENY those people (except sometimes for the English, who look just a bit more like Americans to Hasbro than the rest of those Europeans).

    Then again, mainland Europe has always been a favored dumping ground for the toys Hasbro failed to sell in the US. Even right now, in toy stores here in the Netherlands, I am seeing stuff like Hailstorm, Terradive, Legends RtS Goldbug, Trailcutter and the like at deep discount, so I could actually, inconceivably, sort of imagine Hasbro dumping unsold TFPrime FE right here in Europe!
