    Transformers Generations returns to the UK!
    Loose the Megatron for a Warpath and it'd be complete love.

    Cool! I happen to be missing Blurr and Skullgrin. It would be great if I could walk into my local TRU or Smyths and pick them up at retail. Some good news for UK residents at last!

    I guess Warpath could use better distribution, considering he's the only figure in the last wave of a toyline that will soon be replaced by DOTM. Having said that, I just pre-ordered Warpath for £19 shipped yesterday. If I found out that Hasbro was going to release him here at retail for a tenner, I'd be so pissed...

    So not only has the UK gotten all the Reveal the Shield toys I've never found, you're also getting Generations toys I haven't found either?

    Well, at least we still have the better prices...when we don't have to resort to eBay. :\

    Guess all the bee-yotchin was for nothin', eh?

    Generations running simultaneously with MY movie line? It's more likely than you think!

    Yeah, right. Apparently we got RTS G2 Prime, Wreck-Gar and the Bumblebee redeco as well. I've never seen them on shelves either.

    Between this and the windcharger news, this must be a dream year for UKers.

    eh, not really. I've taken it pretty much for granted really, as I buy most stuff online. Nice picking windcharger up in a shop only to see all the fuss going on now.

    Now if we could back to the UK exclusive days of the early 90s... thats the dream. Still remember all those Overlords clogging shelves at Woolworths for years... If only I knew!

    I may be in the minority, but I think that this is great. We moan a lot when we dont get half the distribution of some of you guys (which many of you US guys can now kind of understand better), and while I pretty much have all of the figures that want from this Gen redux wave, I appreciate the effort from Hasbro. Its good to know that we are not totally forgotten. So, when we get left out I will complain, but right now.... 'thanks Hasbro UK'. :thumbs2:  In fact, I have spent the last two days picking up a few bits (Windcharger, Grappel, Chopsaw) for some US members who have helped me out in the past and it is good to be able to return the favour (with a 'u'! :D ).

    (I will now get back to my usual UK self - complaining that the US have had these figures for ages, that these are only the ones that they cant sell elsewhere and that we are a dumping ground, that we probably wont get anything beyond wave two of any DotM line, etc.... grumble, grumble. :dunce )

    That case breakdown is the same as Entertainment Earth's Generations Wave 6 Revision 1 / 2011 Wave 2 Revision 2.

    Great to hear that you guys are getting all those awesome figures at long last!

    No Red Alert or Dirge, but you're getting all the new Generations molds.
