    Is anywhere shipping the deluxes to the UK?

    Also, from people who already have them, which ones do you think are best? My current fave vehicle TF is Classics Rodimus for reference.

    I haven't seen any online stores shipping to the UK yet; to be honest for the next few weeks at least, your best bet is probably going to be eBay.

    Ebay:
    I'm sure if you have a paypal account you can work out a deal with some in the states, since all the classics have been on clearance for weeks. You will probably only find Mirage, Cliffjumper and Prime readily available at clearance prices. But you can still order most of the figures through amazon or HTS at full price.

    Thanks for the suggestion but I'm after the movie deluxes :)  I have all the Classics moulds except for Ramjet...

    I'm thinking of leaving it a while and getting Revoltech Megs instead. Which would I like more I wonder? Movie Jazz is very cool, wouldn't mind Barricade or Bonecrusher either(I like TFs with unique but non-alien alt modes).

    I have a rather clever plan to get all the Voyagers(Well, the ones I want, thinking of getting FAB Ironhide in place of the Voyager); my Dad is going to america to a soccer tournament, I ask him to get them for me :)  They'll cost 2-3 times as much here and shipping is a lot.

    Out of curiosity is there a street date for movie toys overseas or is it June 2 everywhere? Or is that question just silly? :lol

    Yeah, it kinda is. Over here it can take several months for new figures to come out. I still haven't seen Classics Wave 2, someone else from the UK correct me if they have.

    I need to find these for a few people I know, actually so it'd be best to find a retailer, I appreciate the offer though.

    Ya you UK guys get screwed over the most that's for sure.

    Will be interesting to see how it is with the movie stuff as it seems to be a bit more of a formal launch then other TF lines.

    Yeah, I'm sure us euros will try to keep you posted, I know it's an interesting point of note for everyone to see how serious Hasbro is with their movie stuff.

    TFs don't sell well here in general because they're far too costly, though. I can't imagine anyone bothering with the Protoforms - would you bother for $22 at retail? A bit much for a "Movie preview figure".

    I don't know if you want any Voyager Class TF Movie toys, but I did see an Ironhide that mentioned shipping to the UK in the discription. Didn't notice the shipping charges though.

    Hmm, getting my Dad to get the voyagers when he's over there, and not too gone on Ironhide. Thanks though.

    Early June in the U.K. as well. If they didn't materialize for several months after they were scheduled to it wouldn't be the first time however.
