    I got my ROTF Leader Prime and Deluxe Sideways a week before May 30th, thanks to Fry's disregarding the street date. Though the rest had to wait til the 29th.

    I got Leader Megs and Prime along with Voyager Demolisher at a local Sears Essentials that broke the street date. I would say about a week and a half before the May 30 date.

    Preview Soundwave on the 24th May at Target, some wave 1 figures on the 28th at Kmart. I don't know about the preview figures, but I hear 28th was the official street date for Australia.

    In Japan, they were going to have "the world first ROTF toy sale" at 12am on the 30th, I assume because they are in the earlier time zone, but had to change the name of the event because of other countries breaking the street dates. Of course people still had fun, I hear.
