    At the rate they're going, i'm starting to think they won't be far behind on the Classics line.


    (The probable excepton being those at the mercy of Hasbro UK of course)

    Yay! Primus!!! I only hope this fella and the rest of the waves 3 and 4 hit Argentina soon. I mean winter vacations are only 1 month away. Or probably the last figures will arrive in December. Bah, i don't care when they arrive as long I can buy them. :D

    Why is there no box art for the characters?

    With International releases, they use photos instead of boxart.

    Incidentally, I saw my first deluxe in this packaging today - I didn't know there was now no bios at all on the deluxe cards. That's really pathetic, because there's SO much blank space there they could go. It's just designed really badly.

    Hurrah, proof of absolutely nothing.

    If Primus does come out here then I will consider my patience rewarded.

    That's so weak, is there a reason they can't use the art?

    Me and Nevermore believe there's a law in some EU country that states the pictures on the front of the box must be accurate depictions rather than boxart, and Hasbro UK are too lazy to get is right in the other territories.

    I've been able to pretty much rule it out as a piece of EU law, and it's not British, but research is much slower when the laws are written in languages I don't speak.

    International packaging just gets worse... :/

    Either way its great to see Primus. But I kind of doubt I'll ever see it on the shelf. 0_0

    I think theres even less chance of it getting over here, still, at least we are getting some stuff, even If HasbroUK skip's most of the good stuff.

    Though, Even If Primus did come out here, I wouldn't get him, I won't pay £50+ for Transformers.
    Same with the Mini-con's, I wont pay £6.99 for them, or Repugnus (simply because I don't buy repaint's, I already Have Undermine).
    However, Shortround I would buy, instantly.

    I'm kind of still waiting for Megatron and Leobreaker. If I'm LUCKY I'll see Wing Saber and Soundwave towards autumn or christmass.

    But I don't count too heavily on that. I'll see what they got in Stockholm. Maybe the toystores towards the more heavily populated cities are more well stocked.

    Perhaps.... :(
