    I know this is a long shot but I don't suppose anyone has a list of the barcode numbers from the US releases of the Transformers Animated figures do they?

    I'm trying to figure out what order they were registered to work out if they had any bots which were dropped.

    US and UK barcodes differ due to using different coding systems, USA seem to use an EAN11 number but the UK uses EAN13.
    EAN13 uses a number increment system which basically means you won't get consecutive numbers but he US system seems to give them consecutivly, which means you can easily spot the gaps.
    Chances are a company like Hasbro has consigned blocks of numbers to product groups onw group for TF:A an other to the Movie line etc etc.

    If you can spot the gaps you can see that some items are missing and see where the rare prototypes fit into the scheme of things
