    Found and bought them from Forbidden Planet in Edinburgh for £14.99 each.

    Standard 12-Language backing cards like all European items.

    I can't get excited til I see these at TRU or the supermarkets. To me, Forbidden Planet is not a general release, as they stock items which will never be released in this country.

    Seeing as my local FP doesn't seem to sell Transformers anymore and Worlds Apart charge an arm and a leg depending which character you want, I'll hold on and pray for a supermarket or TRU to have them.

    Agreed. Mass retail release would be news.

    I agree. While it's great to see them filtering over here in any way, I'll be a lot happier when I see them in a shop that doesn't sell imports. Thanks for the heads up though man. Time to keep an eye open!

    They're not imports. They came from Diamond UK and are standard Euro releases. Their street date is the last week of July, which generally means that's their saturation date, so they will be cropping up soon.

    Given that Sainsburys have the Power Core Combiners I would be surprised if they've got these as well.

    Also Forbidden Planet International (Of which Edinburgh is one) don't import items like this any more. They've not had any Transformers in the last few years that haven't appeared in general UK stores as well.
