    I'll pick up Primus, as I just couldn't justify the import price for GF version. Once I have that, and possibly Super Screamer, I shall consider my GF/Cybertron collection complete...

    Well, I live in hope that these buggers turn up in the new Argos catalogue, when it turns up at the end of the month. Either that, or cross my fingers that TRU gets them in!!

    Nice to see this stuff, but the basics and Primus are the only ones I'm really interested in at full price.

    Bar Red Alert & Override Hasbro UK seems to have passed on very little so far (see UK sightings)

    HasbroUK if you finally bring Metroplex and Nemesis Breaker out over here, and follow the trend, perhaps releasing the rest of the giant planet guys, I swear down, I will barely curse you again.

    One question: how is the international packaging different from the original?

    Actually, this is European (plus South Africa) packaging. "International" would include Asia and Oceania, who get standard US packaging, as well as Canada and South America, who get their own specific packaging.

    US packaging = one language (English), full bios, box artwork.

    Canadian/South American packaging = three languages (English/Spanish/French), I think full bios and box artwork.

    Europen packaging = twelve languages (originally just six, namely English, German, French, Spanish, Italian and Dutch; now additionally with Portuguese, Danish, Swedish, Turkish, Greek and Polish), no bios (used to be very short bios) and photos of the actual toys instead of box artwork.

    Back in the BW days there used to be 2 different forms of Euro packaging - BioCombat (Italian and GB & others) and AniMutants (French and others)
