    No. Canada falls under their domestic releases. This is meant for an overseas release.

    Hasn't he already been released in Canada years ago?

    That's because he wasn't released in the UK.

    Already happened. It was released in Canada before it was released in the US.

    yahoo, With my newfound love of the G1 figs, I'll be sure to grab him.
    And spin him round on a table whilst yelling
    'Whoop, Whoop, Whoop!'

    Come on, y'all can see Red Alert doing that can't you.

    I'm hoping Sideswipe gets an international release. I already have Red Alert.

    He's not on the Toys'R'Us website yet, but Prowl and Inferno are there, so hopefully it won't be long now. Very cool to see them again though.

    Yeah, but I missed out on all of them, I don't own a single G1 fig, reissue or otherwise.

    I don't have a Red Alert re-issue, so I'll be picking this one up if he ever actually appears here.

    No idea why anyone will pick up these things.


    Only those who grew up in the 80s might consider it.


    Kids wont touch them with a 10 foot pole, they're too outdated, stickers are not pretty, limited articulation.

    And finally, they cost too much compared to modern TFs.

    Especially from where I am (Malaysia) these babies costs way too much and totally uncompetitive to many other toys.

    Even alts aren't cheap here, but they sure beat the hell out of these re-issues (which i don't find worth splurging the money on)

    Can't see any. Don't expect the launcher to fire, but the original didn't do anything exciting either.
