    I have received my pre-order sheet from my supplier today for the UK stock of TF classics

    the first 3 figures to be released are Bumblebee, Hot Rod and Starscream and are due for release in October

    you can pre-order them from me here


    Approved by TF @ The Moon. - Comment on this story here


    End of Article.



    ...and yes i too scratched my head at the apparent the lack Astrotrain.




    It may also confirm speculation that Hasbro UK are nearly done with Cybertron.

    The lack of Astrotrain and the total inability of Hasbro to get Deluxes out anywhere near me over here pretty much kills my faith in getting these. It'd be great if they make it, but I'm not going to take that chance.

    Sucks that there is no sign Of Astrotrain, sucks even more that theyre quitting Cybertron, so out of a total of 84+ (only counting those shown on Hasbro's site) figures, we only get 46 (sighted) of them, and we still didnt get the kick ass figures, Most of the Deluxes, Voyagers, Ultras, Leaders, Scouts, and all Mini-con sets.

    Oh well, I'll still pick up Starscream when I see him, if he isnt retailing in the U.S at $14.99, cus then hell be £14.99 over here.

    EDIT:
    Anyone have any thoughts as to why the coolest of the deluxes, Astrotrain, gets skipped.

    Also, I Agree with Twin Twists post Below, especially because they havent been released in the U.S for about 6 months so far.

    Ditto. I'll believe this when they're in my hands, and not before.

    I also beleive the "source" of this "news" is the same guy who would give up his whole collection if the DS fell flat on it's bum.

    And we all know how that turned out :D

    Due to the likelyhood of duplicate names between different people and multiple aliases for one person........ I'm not sure *either* of us can proove if it is or isn't someone known as Ghost Prime here.


    Personally, I'm going to take the rumor with cautious optimism. If others want to be sceptical, that's up to them.

    Naw he's not Ghost Prime here, that's someone toally different.

    If Pete's been offered them for that date that's probably when they'll start arriving in warehouses in the UK.

    I went to Memorabilia in Birmingham on Sunday. As I arrived there was an announcement over the tannoy system that Hasbro UK would be making some sort of announcement on the stage at some point during the day. Could it have been related to this? Was anyone else there that was around when the announcement was made?

    Hasbro UK says:

    "We belive that UK children would not recognise a Bullet train, the coolest of trains and would also beconfused as to why it is not daubed in attractively painted allbeit mis-spelt slogans"
