    Not going to lie, I'm not really that bothered, I just want confirmation that generations will be coming here as it'll give me something to hunt for.

    Damn, I thought it was Battle Blade Bumblebee for a second...

    I seriously doubt these will even appear on shelves in my area, based on the failure of the Leader-Class range and previous giant 'Bee in this country.

    I wish Hasbro UK would source things people are actually clamouring for (Long Haul, Mindwipe etc. etc.) instead of more giant overpriced novelty junk.

    Generations is confirmed for UK release :)  dont have the exact date as that and HFTD keeps getting punted around but I guess it will be soon seeing as the international dates have been shoved forward by a couple of months.

    There's only a certain window in which they can order particular waves before they're out of production.

    Why they didn't or couldn't order the several Voyager waves in a row... there's a bunch of theoires.

    As suggested by the way the Ice Cream Van was missing from early shipments of Wave 4 last year, and replaced with random earlier toys, it would appear at least part of the problem is they don't have much choice over what they can order.

    I have to see him in person to decide on him, currently on the fence. However hopefully we can finally say we got something before the Americans!

    It's Hasbro UK - pretty much all they send us is Bumblebees. After all, gotta keep those shelves all yellow and warm.

    I think what Red Leader actually means is that it's now available for retailers to order from Hasbro UK, it might take a little while to filter through to retailers.

    Next Argos catalogue?

    Maybe?


    Not any more. Apparently it ocassionally had stock that couldn't be found elsewhere, so obviously that meant it had to be closed down before people
    strated to think Hasbro UK were capable of doing something other than playing dumb.

    Seen this figure today in Forbidden Planet Edinburgh, the price was £64.99.

    When I asked they said that they can't get any more Nest figures, but have a deliivery of new deluxes coming at the end of the month.

    sigh, we barely saw nest, I'd better go out and look for those deluxes asap.

    Big arse bb is kinda cool but I'm not gonna buy one at full price.
