    I'm not 100% sure, but, I think this is old news.

    Edit: Nvm. I was thinking of the US release.

    Was it a chain store? Or a "Mom and pop" store?

    They're officially distributed by Hasbro Germany. I just got confirmation from a reliable source earlier today. Was just wondering when they would pop up, as they were listed with a shipping date of June (!).

    EDIT: They're listed at an online store too...

    As is Alternators Silverstreak, who has recently been sighted in Germany alongside Swindle.

    It's only Ravage. We have loads of them here, especially at TRU.

    Silverstreak and Swindle might also be out (and I've also heard of Dead End and Shockblast), but thus far there's only been sightings from one store, which might have imported them or something.

    But Ravage... take as many of him as you want.

    And yes.. I was not disappointed with the amount of Ravages...

    but what's uup with the Alternators numbering missing? I would've expected them to keep numbering the boxes like the rest of the series, but no numbers on ravage :( 

    Anyway. I think €29.99 is a bit too much for him.. archonia offers Binaltech items than that. :( 

    My trip was to Mönchengladbach anyway.

    Ah.. .okay thanks..

    Edit: so why are there still numbers on the boxes sold in the uk (amazon) and my European (presumably) sideswipe?

    I'm confuzzled..

    Maybe because what I see as european (english/french/spanish on box) is not actually European?

    Side Swipe was never officially released in Europe.

    Trilingual packaging (English/French/Spanish) was the original US/Canadian/South American packaging.

    European packaging is:
    1) Blue box, six languages (English, French, German, Dutch, Spanish, Italian), number, box art (Smokescreen)
    2) Blue box, six languages (English, French, German, Dutch, Spanish, Italian), NO number, box art (Silverstreak, Hound)
    3) Red box, six languages (English, French, German, Dutch, Spanish, Italian), NO number, box art (Meister)
    4) Red box, six languages (English, French, German, Dutch, Spanish, Italian), NO number, PHOTO OF THE TOY instead of box art (Windcharger, Swindle, Ravage [Corvette], Wheeljack)
    5) Bubble box, twelve languages (English, French, German, Dutch, Spanish, Italian, Greek, Turkish, Danish, Swedish, Portuguese, Polish), NO number, PHOTO OF THE TOY instead of box art (Shockblast, Swindle re-release, Decepticharge, Dead End, Optimus Prime, Silverstreak re-release, Ravage [Jaguar])
