    Moving this post up from the 4th page.

    Sorry if I came off a little strong but I'm just upset that everyone else is pretty much getting the first edition voyagers. Throw in the release of the main line and yeah I my have overreacted. Look I'm not trolling anyone I'm just sick of this drought that's going on. I am happy to give Hasbro money I'm just upset that everyone else is getting new toys while we have to wait until who knows when. I just wish Hasbro was a little more active and at least gave us a reason on why we're not getting the prime stuff yet. Look I'm sorry if I riled everyone up, I'm not a troll. I just came on here to vent a little and hoped some people would agree with me. Apparently I was wrong. Can someone just lock this thread? I hate it when I accidentally come off as a troll or accidentally start a flame war.

    Yeah it sucks and i will admit i am most frustrated but seriously though usually we have the toys and our international colleagues get screwed. Take this as an opportunity to become more sympathetic with them and pray it never happens again /cry

    Yeah, I'm kind of miffed about this too. The US has been getting shafted since about October. No more DOTM figures, and only three FE Prime figures. No vehicon, cliffy, or voyagers yet, let alone the entire first wave of RiD. :(

    Because the UK didn't get the first editions and Argos wanted something to go with their catalogue launch and it's been months since anything got released in the UK that is why we got them early.

    Some places in Asia may have the Cyberverse stuff as well but overall the reason the Uk got them is because they didn't get the first edition stuff.

    Um, ONE catalog store in the UK managed to release a scant few out of a couple waves early. It's amazing, but it's not the end of the world.

    F Hasblo, save your money for the good stuff, the 3rd Party stuff. Quality is always better than quantity. I like All the Igear, TFC, and Fans Project stuff, I've been getting figures here and there.

    The OP is absolutely correct.

    I'm glad/sorry to see it's not just Norway. I'm shocked every time I see something from a "new" line in stores here. (and by new I mean that I'm surprised when I see DotM toys)
    the vast majority here are legends (HFTD), some universe voyagers (mixmaster is all over the place) and fast action battlers, or whatever the line is called.

    Generations/RtS? fuhget about it.



    more on topic:
    Yes, Hasbro hates people who gives them money. Hates them so much that they dare to send NEW products to the stores. How rude.
    :rolleyes:

    What's worse, that we can't get Prime toys in the US, or that Hasbro is making Prime toys instead of Generations?

    You just made baby Jesus cry.

    Judging by your username we're probably all falling for an 17-18 year old.

    You can get Prime toys in the US. You guys got all of the First Editions released so far. The rest of the world didn't.

    And you will get the rest of the Prime line - in March. We in the UK only got a few scraps early because the Argos catalogue needed to have a few in stock at launch so as not to break trading standards violations (advertising that you sell something when you don't).

    Please. For the love of Primus. You guys get everything else early, you have access to Hasbro Toy Store, as well as companies like BBTS without horrendous shipping charges. We got a few toys early; wow. You're right. Hasbro hates you soooo much.

    Personally I'm ready for Prime. I've had my fill of movie toys and classics, etc. I'm dying for something new.
