    I'm less shocked that these have been released, more shocked that they turned up in TRU :lol

    Yep! There were 3 boxes of them. 2 were open and were scalped, leaving just 2 BB and 2 G2 Prime's. When I got there a lady was putting the contents of the last box on the shelves.

    Suh-huh-huh-weeet! Been holding off importing these because I felt hopeful for a UK release. I don't expect to see them at my TRU EVAR, because it's utterly shit, but hopefully they'll soon spread to other stores!

    Beaten by me by 3 hours 30mins in the UK sightings thread! ;) 

    Glad to know they are more widespread than Leeds TRU.

    I phoned TRU in Croydon this morning to ask if they had any RTS figures. They got nada. I guess TRU doesn't receive the same shipment everywhere. :(

    Mod: Can we get the word DELUXE into the the title of the thread please?

    We all know the waves at various sizes don't come out at the same time and RTS Legends Wave 2 has been out for a month or so now.

    I reproduce what I posted in The UK Toy Discussion Thread:

    I question the timing of the release of RTS Wave 2. It's been half term out there this week when kids are going out the shops. They want a new toy. You either want your new product on the shelves by (at the latest) the week before half term so it's there and ready to be bought or in the week after half term so it's availability builds up in the run up to the next holiday.

    On the shelves towards the end of half term makes little sense to me. But I'm glad it's out there, it's a good wave qc issues and orange Bumblebee aside.
