    Human Alliance Skids and Arcee with Mikaela is out at UK retail.

    Thanks to board member Dom for posting in the UK sightings thread that he picked up this set at Asda Poole today.

    I checked out Asda Trafford Park and picked up one for myself.

    Just found HA Skids in Asda Poole, even sweeter it was £20. Its in euro packaging, but besides that exactly like the US version.

    No sign of Sideswipe though, but 3 BB on the shelves.

    Bloomin' 'eck, that's a bargain at £20!! I frequently curse the lack of an accessible Asda near me... still don't have an Ejector! Just grabbed the phone to pass this along to a guy I know who lives near one... fingers crossed.

    That's a steal at £20. That's my Sunday morning before work at 12 sorted, then!

    HA Skids hasn't been found in the States yet, has it? Grats to collectors across the pond! Good luck in getting a hold of the figure. It looks as if it is worth the purchase price.

    There's been sightings in the US, though few and far between. I don't think we've had pics yet, but he's out there.

    Oh, ok. Thanks for the tip. I guess I had either missed the news of the sighting or just forgotten it (more likely).

    I think he turned up right around when all the other stuff started hitting (RotF Wave 5, Legends Wave 4, etc). It was like a new sighting every other day for a while there. You'd have to be some sort of superhuman to keep up with it all.

    Disturbing. Why would they pass over Sideswipe and Epps for release?
