    The Allspark reports that these guys - the Mini-con 8 Pack - will only be released in the EU. Or rather, was only released in the EU. I don't remember hearing of them ever popping up over here - can any of our other European members ever remember seeing this thing?

    Odds are it was in Sainsbury's the entire time and I never noticed :lol

    I am amused Hasbro trademarked the name that non-fans tend to use when referring to Ironhide.

    WHAT Buckshot. really thats lude. Darn british don't even know why its offensive, Quick, we better protest the whole thing and get it banned from release all together; even though it's not going to be released in the states and effects us in no way. ;)

    Yeah I'm pretty sure it was the 10 pack we got in Tesco's, with 'extra value' and 'half price' written all over it when it reeeallly wasn't :)

    Yup, I want this one. I'll definitely import it. If any EU fans can hook me up, let me know, though it looks like no one's seen it yet.

    No recollection at all of seeing it on the shelves here. In fact I'm not sure I've seen a picture of that before.

    Oh cut it out. The Stunticons are still getting released, it's just getting a different and hopefully more sensible name. If you'd ever had that word used as an insult against you, and I have, you'd be bothered by it being used on a word to.

    So have many in North America, myself inclusive. It's just no more insulting than being called an idiot, or stupid, or a moron to us colonials. Although using SPAM to refer to yanks takes on a new weight now that I know the gravitas of the S in the acronym. :eek: 

    And how the frack is buckshot lude?

    I've never actually heard that term used as an insult before. It's just a kind of shotgun shell, right? They probably meant it in that sense.

    Then again the rest of the world reckons the Elite Action Masters were released in the UK and I've got no recollection of seeing them for sale here, and I looked.

    Buckshot is what you called the round metal balls in a shot gun shell ( unless is a slug designed for Deer hunting). so i don't find it Lewd in the least.

    Buckshot is also for use against a deer.
