    Hey all

    A quick update on some new items I've found in Europe
    Here in London I found the following G1 Flashlights. They come in a very good Cliffjumper and a sadly crappy Bumblebee. I bought one of each, I'll do proper photo when I get a chance. VERY odd to find G1 merchandise on the shelves of a regular store

    Next a find from France. In Europe we got the classic 2 pack Primes/Megatrons individually carded. These go for ALLOT on ebay (Feel free to look!) and I know there was somebody from these boards hunting for them. They came and went very quickly in the UK, but as you can see below, they are EASY to get in France

    I will be back in France this week, if anybody wants these please say, please note that 15 Euros is 20 US dollars

    Also in France, the movie 2 pack of Voyager Prime and Bumblebee, previously only seen in Argos in the UK

    Finally some crazy ass bootlegs from the UK. We rarely get cool bootlegs in England but I loved this

    Behold the Optimus, Hot Shot, Soundwave combiner!

    Also found some crazy Minicon bootlegs!

    looks like it is probably set up like the Micromaster Combiners judging by the thigh piece.

    Crazy!
    I can't believe they use photos of the ACTUAL Hasbro products on the packaging.

    I wish I could have that Megs, too. I'll call him Megastorm :) 

    That LoC Leobreaker KO is also available in a 3 pack with slightly oversized minicon KOs. Very bad quality, though minicons are not too bad.

    EDIT: Wrong two-pack.

    EDIT 2: The Prime/Bumblebee two-pack was also available as a mass retail release in Hong Kong and as a KMart exclusive in Australia.

    They must have made a lot of those deluxes Primes and Megs, it seems that they're available anywhere at anytime.

    That's the second time we've seen a KO Brimstone in Legends scale, very odd.

    Which wrong 2 pack?

    Didn't know the Prime/Bumble pack was out anywhere else, did you know it was in TRU Paris though?

    My local Wal-Mart STILL has a load of the 2-pack sitting on the discount shelf! What's worse is I still haven't gotten one.


    BTW, that combiner is absolutely hideous, LOL!

    I was at first thinking of the TRU exclusive Animated Deluxe Ratchet/Bumblebee two-pack, which has thus far been spotted at TRU stores in the UK and Germany (the latter with my own eyes).
