    We have received word from online retailer Toyz and Gamez that the Transformers Movie Deluxe figure, Recon Barricade, is going to be a store exclusive in the UK. As yet it is not known which store it is going to be exclusive to.

    We also have received confirmation that wave 4 (shipping now) consists of Longarm and Final Battle Jazz, as mentioned in the other news thread, and that the next wave will be Dropkick and Payload.

    Recon Barricade is NOT a "UK exclusive". He is a STORE EXCLUSIVE in the UK. That means, if you live in the UK, you will only get him as a store exclusive. If you live in the US, you may be able to get him at various stores.

    Ach, well, that's no big loss at all. I'm just happy to see they've carried Payload over to the next wave - we're on track for all the original moulds to make it here so far...

    Store xclusive to the UK? I'm a bit confused because it's out here in the US too...

    Recon Barricade is to be more of an exclusive to a particular store in the UK for that country, but not exclusive for that country, right? Just a bit confused due to the wording...

    I think what it means is that Recon Barricade will be exclusive to one retailer here in the UK - it doesn't affect availability in other countries at all.

    As per Draven, I'd also like to know why this is funny... :confused:

    Imo it is funny because Recon Barricade is a poor recolor. Should had given it a racing stripes recolor or metallic silver or...well, I can't think of anything else.

    What would be tragic would be to make Bumblebee or Dropkick the UK store exclusive!

    It was said before that this figure was to be an exclusive, but given that there's no evidence of it so far, and that its a fairly undesirable repaint, I doubt it'll be a store exclusive.

    How about a G1 Barricade color scheme?


    Oh and the store will most likely be either TRU, Woolworths or Argos.

    I've seen this one for sale here in OZ in K-Mart. Can't say I was overly thrilled with the colour scheme, but each to their own.

    I'd have said Argos but they don't sell deluxes in the singular format, only as assortments. Could also be Tescos since they've had that Bumblebee two pack to themselves.

    Not interested in this one at all myself, I already have a better looking Barriacde.

    I imagine it will be an Argos exclusive, as they got the night watch Prime. I don't want 'Mall Security' Barricade. I would like to see the first wave again. I never got Brawl or Barricade.

    Please get that blurry and enormous picture out of your sig! Recon Barricade will be an exclusive when released in the UK! That's not the same thing as being exclusive to the UK.

    Man, I've seen so many mediocre exclusive recolors come out over the past 5 years, Recon Barricade doesn't even come CLOSE to poor. Original's better, but Recon isn't bad.

    At least the UK is getting a chance at him, unlike half the series since Armada
