    were these with the other main figures or the isle with the other hotwheel type toys? some targets split them up in the past like that.

    Based on things so far, this might be the only Speed Star I ever find! No one around here is stocking them at all.

    I kinda know how you feel. Only one store in WA is selling them and they're 30 minutes away.

    Since your location says UK i doubt you got it throught Hasbro U.S distirbution channels, or through Hasbro U.K. for that matter.

    So i'm guessing China, via eBay?

    Want this to go with the Topspin I got. Hopefully it'll be easier to find than the rest of the DOTM Speed Stars.

    Just release the effing Deluxe already! I really hope we at least get a few pictures of the package soon. I'm getting worried that the fate of the HFTD Target exclusives we were supposed to get last year (like the one with the Sideways and Legends Arcee repaints) will befall this set too. I know it probably won't since they wouldn't want a brand new mold to go to waste, but I'm still worried.

    I know a good friend in the uk who deals with buying in new toys to businesses in the uk that are stand alone shops. I ask him to call in favours for me every now and again as he gets prototypes to use as display pieces. lucky enough I got myself a deluxe leadfoot he is epic!!! I am doing a video review tomorrow for you tube :)

    The Targets in my area haven't stocked this series for a while but about a dozen of just Leadfoot got stocked in the Transformers section a couple weeks ago. You may see them yet.
