    Don't see much difference from the US packing there, but at least this confirms that the line is going international, that'll save me some import fees :)

    The biggest difference on the Classics is the addition of "2 in 1" next to the logo.

    Were the BWX toys released outside of the US, Canada and Australia? (well aside from asia) I noticed the Australian release was in two languages without the DVD.

    Aaah, didn't notice that. Biggest changes will be on the back I'd expect, wonder if the character bio will be on there at all or cropped so they can fit multiple language versions on the back?

    Cool. Good to see that Classics look set to get a European release.

    We'll see. I'm pretty sure there have been Euro releases that have never made it to the UK.

    At least 5 deluxes from Cybertron... two of which are proably the best deluxes in the line.



    EU regulations probably mean they have to remove it incase some dimwit thinks it means they have to flip themselves.

    Yup, it's hard being a TF fan in Blighty alright. Hell, if it weren't for this site and Ebay, I wouldn't even know TF was still going ¬_¬

    *Happydances* Hopefully this line will make it to Woolies so they're within impulse purchase range of me.

    If I saw reissue Tracks at a sensible price, I'd grab him. One of the few I didn't import.

    Oddly enough I've got a copy of the EEC toys directive in the office, I'll have a flick through as it does have some bits on packaging in it iirc.

    If anyone wants a peek its freely available here http://eur-lex.europa.eu/LexUriServ/LexUriServ.do?uri=CELEX:31988L0378:EN:HTML (it's a fair read though)

    International meaning Europe or International meaning Latin America?

    I'm asking because I don't see another language in the box other than english.

    European package IIRC tend to have like 6 languages, and Latin America's tend to have english/portuguese/spanish on it.

    Tracks only has English on him, but then, so did Prowl and Inferno, who as far as I can tell were only released in the UK. So if I were to guess, I'd say Tracks is headed for the UK as well.

    The Classics... hmm. "Voyager" only. Another UK-only packaging?

    Any chance Hasbro actually started producing individual packaging for each country?!?
