    After a somewhat lengthy series of sightings we're finally able to confirm POTP Wave 2 deluxe are at UK retail!

    User @motorthing, @ waffel and @Farmio saw some in Forbidden Planet a few weeks ago but didn't say what cardbacks they were on:

    For non UK readers FP are known to import stock as well as take stock from Hasbro UK so there's a small amount of doubt quite what they had then and it's annoyingly not possible to tell if those are imported or European stock wave 2 from the above photo!

    User @phantomfish received Euro stock from FP by post on June 6th:

    Then yesterday User @Sousuke_Sagara found these locally:
    He went back today and got a photo

    POTP W2 aren't US exclusives, you've been sold a dud there!

    Other sizes of POTP w2 - Primemasters, Legends and Leader - have been found in the UK. Just Voyagers to go.

    Thus far POTP w2 deluxe has been found in

    Released Hasbro toys archive: Generations (Combiner Wars, Titans Return & Power of the Primes)

    AND, most importantly, the first post has pictures of POTP w2 deluxe in a UK Toymaster!

    Smyths may or may not get them but we know they're in the Hasbro UK distribution system.

    Most class sizes in Titans Return w5 were not released in Europe, see Released Hasbro toys archive: Generations (Combiner Wars, Titans Return & Power of the Primes) again, so it wasn't a matter of Smyths "bypassing" it. The TR Legends class w5 (Brawn and Seaspray) was widely found here.
