    I live in the UK and will never ever see them. They're not on ebay or anything. But want them because they're in scale with the other figures (which I realised LONG after purchasing Arcee and Chromia). What can I do about this?

    Yeah I want this set too. I'm hoping it will be released under the DOTM line...

    It was never released? I never knew that. That's why it's not on ebay I suppose.

    I don't think so. I've only ever seen Legends Arcee.

    Yes, but due to some bizarre distibution anomaly, the Sideways set never materialised.

    I could swear I remember someone on the boards mention that they had been released in the US in VERY small quantities but I might be mistaken.

    Anyone?

    Three HFTD exclusives are in some sort of "yeah we're probably canceled" limbo right now,
    -Ravage Infiltration (saw limited release in UK only, was advertised as a Target exclusive in the states)
    -Sideways Sneak Attack (only a few samples leaked from overseas factories, with Target stickers on them)
    -Megatron Rising (seen at SDCC 2010, but never again)

    Plus two other probably "red-box" exclusive scout 2-packs we never heard anything about after their appearance on Hasbro's instruction database:
    -Crosshairs VS Blue Maximus
    -Undertow VS Drydock

    Which is a shame, because I passed on most of the HFTD exclusives, but the three I wanted most were these :(

    I WISH it had been limited! Ok granted, it was limited to one store (Sainsbury's) but that thing is still clogging up the shelves like a rotting corpse. They've tried putting it on sale at half price and the damn thing still hasn't shifted for months.

    I wonder if that's got anything to do with why the other sets have been put on hold/cancelled?

    Man hook me up with one! I've been lurking on ePay for months now but can never find one that won't cost me an arm and a leg, same goes for that minicon 8-pack you guys got. (I meant limited as in it wasn't even a European exclusive, it was just one country haha)

    The set is now back to full price in my local Sainsburys £26.99. So they are not going anywhere fast.
    i have not seen that minicon 8 pack. We had the 12 and 10 packs plus the candy minicons.

    Yup - if they could barely shift them at half price I really doubt they'll be flying off the shelves back at full price. Now if it had been the set with the Legends bike sisters and accurate Sideways paintjob they'd have probably been selling like hot cakes. I know I'd have grabbed one, even at £26.99.

    We didn't get the Minicon 8pk, the only two countries i've been able to confirm it's release in are Slovakia and France.
