    But those figures were in European packaging, and since that was the first European sighting, there was nowhere they could have been imported from.

    Thanks, I hadn't seen that info. I think I'll continue to hold fire on buying the W2 Legends online for now then.

    Does anyone know whether the POTP series will have more than the 2 decepticon seeker jets being released this year?

    I ask since based on current information I know of so far they're giving us a Starscream Combiner who doesn't have enough decepticon seekers to complete his combiner mode and that's surprising. We need 2 more at least, (maybe re-release those tfcon exclusives) or at least some g1 character to plug into it even if its a set of 4 purple or blue no-name seekers from the cartoon and put it in a box set. I suggest such since I think most people are buying it just for the combiner aspect since they probably already have a go to Starscream they love.

    When figures are out, why do you remove the amazon links? Can you please leave them in?

    Anyone have the early link to Hun-Gurrrr?

    I picked up the Prime as I don't care for Hot Rod all that much...even an evil version. I like to think he's always been a decepticon spy lol

    It's a little late to change how I do that sort of stuff. Ultimately, this is supposed to be a quick overview, not a list of purchase options. And why only single out Amazon?

    Why don't you bookmark Amazon links instead of expecting them to be still there by the time you decide to buy a figure?

    First of all - 100% respect and appreciation for making and keeping this thread updated. It has been a really valuable resource. So thank you.

    But I don't really get why you would remove the Amazon link, if you've already added it in. It's valuable to a lot of people, myself included, where in some cases for some really weird reason one simply can't find the actual product listing on Amazon no matter what search terms are entered.

    As for the suggestion to bookmark the link, counterpoint: 1. A lot of us simply bookmark this thread, since it usually has all the links we could ever want. and 2. Sometimes you don't know until much later that you actually DO want to buy a certain figure. Like right now I'm not bookmarking any links for TLK stuff - but 6 months from now, what if I change my mind? It's not very helpful to suggest people bookmark links for everything they might possibly ever - or may currently think "never" - want.

    Just saying, maybe it doesn't hurt to leave them in going foward? Not sure why taking them out helps anyone, and I don't think anyone is suggesting you go BACK and add in the ones that were removed.

    Anyway, thanks again for this thread! No complaining here, just some thoughts for consideration.

    My main concern is that the list in its current form gets too cluttered if I feature every international retail release and all online availiabilities.

    Have you ever thought about bookmarking the TFW2005 Amazon thread? I regularly report new Amazon listings as I find them (and often I find them very early on assuming I get the UPC barcodes), and my posts should be easily found using the search function's "search this thread only" option. For example, this post of mine took me ten seconds to dig up, and I hadn't bookmarked it.

    I'm thinking about a solution that might make you happy, but until then, consider my suggestion above. :)

    TBH, I never even noticed till recently that you had them posted. What I did, as soon as they were posted, is go to Amazon, and then put the figure on my wish list. I find that it holds the Amazon link in that way.

    The problem I had is that I just didn't have the Amazon link to Hun-gurr at all. So I thought it would be useful.

    I am not sure if a mod can help you, but what would be nice is if the first post kept it your way, and the second post in this thread had the links you provide.

    In either case, appreciate what your doing here. keep up the great work!
