    Simple question, was Universe 2.0 Hardhead released in the UK?
    If so, what stores would have him?
    Going to London in the weekend :)

    No he was not.

    I've also been after him for a while, along with Skyfall, but they never were and never will be released at retail in this country.

    I'm going to hedge my bets at Auto Assembly later in the year, but otherwise it's going to be an import job I reckon.

    Sorry man.

    Yeah, never made it here. In addition to AA, I suspect a few may be available at Memorabilia at the end of the month!

    I never even saw Onslaught. Loads of Silverbolt (and his repaint) and Powerglides (discounted even), but never an Onslaught.

    Best bet is eBay or one of the US board members mate, or AA as mentioned above. Were he and his repaint buddies Wal-mart exclusives btw?

    Still could turn up. With those Best Buy movie premiums it was 2 years later that TRU got them. I've got Hardhead and Powerglide and I think I have Skyjack. They're all very good.

    We get some of the Walmart exclusives in Asda, but it's hit or miss. We got the ROTF Seekers, SW and RJ, but MP SS never showed up, and MP SW appeared in Argos.

    I'm guessing as I never saw an Ultra in ASDA they weren't likely to want the US toys at that size class. Considering my TRU still has many, many Powerglides and Silverbolts I can see why they wouldn't want to bother buying in more of the same as exclusives either.

    That makes sense, I've only seen Uni. Deluxes in Asda also. Only things bigger were TFA Voyagers, and those ROTF Seekers that still aren't shifting.

    Ironically, they are seriously reduced in many places in the US right now. I managed to call in a favour and get Long Haul, Skyfall and Hardhead shipped over. Just wrapped as they were (no box, so they took a minor bashing but I throw the boxes away anyhow), they cost £20 each including postage from the US ($15 for the figure and about the same to ship each one).

    I'd settle for a red powerglide but no chance of that...

    I doubt any country but USA will get these. Hasbro said in a Q&A that Canada wouldnt be getting them so i doubt UK will get them.
