    Not entirely sure this is news/rumors worthy, but hadn't seen any threads made about it, and thought some people on here might be interested in this.

    Well....this could play into the recent assumption that deluxe leadfoot will be a target exclusive. Since hasbro offers all u.s. Exclusives to the uk it seams possible. The leadfoot exclusivity would also explain deluxe prime being exclusive to walmart

    You mean like Hardhead... which we didnt get? There are many more but the UK get a bare handful of the exclusives. We possibly get less than half of the Walmart exclusives, and almost none of the TRU exclusives. Forget about any Target or other figures.

    do note, they are apparently offered. They may not all be taken up by UK retailers, especially if other figures are still clogging shelves.

    waitwaitwait. Nobody's COMPLAINING, just saying that it's not our experience. Where do you see above any confirmation from Hasbro that they offer all exclusives to the UK?

    :banghead:  Yeah, thats exactly what I said!

    No. We dont get all of the US exclusives. Thats it. Just who are the Target exclusives offered to over here? What about the TRU exclusives Animated Arcee and Rodimus? They never showed up. We did get Windcharger and the G1 Legends. We win some and lose some.

    Thats all I am saying. So, please, stop jumping on things and trying to stir up more than is actually there.

    This is a good point I hadn't really considered.

    Deluxe Prime really is the first time that that a totally original mold has been offered as a chain exclusive, isn't it? (well, never minding the animated characters that no one wanted and they could ONLY release by offering as store exclusives)

    If Hasbro is now comfortable offering brand new molds as store exclusives, then there's an excellent chance a deluxe Leadfoot would be a Target exclusive.

    You must have been reading a different post to the rest of us.

    Or, more realistically, you have no idea what you're talking about.

    All this exclusivity nonsense regarding Leadfoot makes me think there won't be a HA. :(  They should just leave the logos off, I couldn't care less if they're not there, I'd be buying it for the detailed gunned up car mode.

    I'm assuming with Leadfoot there will be two versions. You'll have a film accurate one as a Target Exclusive. Then, later on post-movie, it will get repainted into a different deco without the logos as a non-exclusive.

    Target simply gets the accurate version and gets first shout.
