    Just picked Ratchet and Blackarachnia up tonight form Forbidden Planet (comic shop here, but does sell stuff out on UK shelfs) and noticed that these two were Euro Packaging.
    Don't know if they have been seen before or not:

    It's new to me, and a couple of guys in the UK sightings thread. Good to hear they're making it to retail over here.

    Er, hang on here. They're out. I bought them - and more - last week in Ireland. Euro packaging and all. So... where's my news credit?...

    First off you didn't supply a image so we couldn't check the validity of your claim (just something we do)
    Secondly your thread was missed. If you had submitted it as news using the 'Submit News' under the 'News' menu then it would have been brought to our attention.

    How much were they? Good to know they're coming out, but I'm still more interested in Universe/Classics.

    Will still get BA though, that's an awesome toy!

    Blackarachnia is incredible - she's an awesome toy. Ratchet is great, too. They're both brilliant representations of their on screen counterparts. I'd say they're up there with Lockdown as the best of the Deluxes - though the six Animated Deluxes I own right now, they're all pretty good. Can't wait to get my hands on some Wave 3's!

    Well with them being found in somewhere that isn't a toy shop then it can only be a matter of time before TRU or one of the supermarkets has them
