    Hi - Here is a quick update from http://www.bigbadtoystore.com about
    another big lump of new preorders, items arriving soon, and new
    arrivals!

    --------------
    NEW PREORDERS:
    --------------

    MASTERPIECE OPTIMUS PRIME: Hasbro UK will be releasing the 20th
    Anniversary Masterpiece Prime this summer and we are importing some for
    everyone who missed out on the US release! Hasbro USA won't be
    releasing
    any domestically from what we've heard. Preorders for the 20th prime,
    one
    of the most popular items we've ever sold are open at $99.99 (The
    retail
    price in the UK is around $80 to $90) The packaging will be updated
    and
    some sort of a display stand may also be included, but we don't have
    any
    final details yet - reserve yours now here:

    about
    this cool new set of figures they will be releasing this summer in
    fairly
    limited numbers. The figures and packaging should both be quite
    similar
    to the stock Hasbro images we have posted. Sets of 6 are available to

    Damn it! That's twice I have apparently been scooped...and I thought I might be first this time....Pretty good price for a trailer though (if I didn't have one, I'd snap one up).

    Wait, isn't the US supposedly getting one too? Damn! Now I don't know what to do.. I don't want to miss the figure, but if the US is putting it out again, perhaps without battle damage, I'd rather have that... arrrrgh!

    yes, it was said that it would be released with movie specific accessories, but it probably won't get out till early next year as part of the pre-movie hype. *shrugs*

    This statement was the reason I had bumped that old thread. Didn't we have confirmation of a release in the USA, with the movie DVD and whatnot? Are the two releases gonna differ?

    Sounds a lot like the UK release of 20th Prime will be what we'll be calling our "Movie 20th Anniversary" Prime, give or take a thing or two.

    I thought Prime had a display stand ... called his FEET! :)

    If the UK release is re-packaged, who did the repack??? Hasbro UK aren't even capable of releasing toys in the right order, let alone having the vision to market 20th Prime.

    I suspect it's the work of TRU UK in conjunction with TRU U.S.

    Yeah, as far as I've been able to find out these are just the Prime's that the US are getting soonish, grey imported in the UK by Toys R Us - Hasbro UK don't have anything to do with it.
