    Yeah - I left it too late myself.

    Even though they are advertised as the toy for christmas at Argos, no stores have them in stock. Really quite strange to be honest :(

    Yes but are we sure the actual toy will have these variations? As we all know the Hasbro images are not always what the final colors of the toy actually are, and are usually early paints and or photoshop mock ups.

    I think all the actual display versions had the black hips and such.

    It's sparkly, but not really that shiny. Standard metallic flake plastic, I think.

    So you have an Allspark Power figure in front of you right now to know that for a fact? The assortment number changed because he's not released in pre-Allspark packaging in the US, but there is no other difference confirmed at this point and I find it very likely that there will be no difference at all. Wait for his release in the US before worrying about variations.

    No, the UK NW Prime was the original version, then Hasbro came up with the "Allspark power" gimmick to boost sales and they added the rather crap light blue colours

    Count me in the group that thinks there won't be a difference. Pictures and final product vary alot with Hasbro, and I honestly don't see them making two different paint versions for American and British releases. Now Takara and Hasbro different paint yes. Not saying that it won't happen, but I have to comparison pics first.
