    About a month between toy releases and film release? Not bad. I don't remember when the figures actually hit shelves the last time around. Did they try to do a same day launch as the film?

    If my memory serves me well, the Protoforms of Optimus Prime and Starscream hit the shelfs about 20th of May in Aussie.

    The first movie's Preview Protoforms hit in late April 2007, I believe. If I recall correctly, the official release date for the rest of the Movie line was early June, but some stores didn't adhere to the street date so I found leader class Prime in mid-May.

    lets hope they actually have enough stock this time around. Has anyone forgotten how impossible it was to find a bumblebee?

    still doesnt solve australias problem of $27.95 for a deluxe. COME ON!

    If the UK release date turns out to be 25th of July again I swear I will write hundreds of letters of complaint to paramount.

    I have. But I wasn't really looking for Bumblebee sooo...
    I did see a bunch of BBs on craigslist shortly after the movie came out for like $50.

    It's probable that the protoform Soundwave test shot we've seen is a preview figure.

    *shrug* Australia sometimes gets stuff before the US does. Look at those combiners that have yet to be officially announced for some reason.

    Because it is about a month after the official release date of the 26th June (i.e. the UK fans will get screwed over ......... again!)

    So, Paramount announce 25th June in Australia, despite updating their website in the last week to 26th June? sigh.

    1 month later, despite the UK producing the largest international box office gross for the first film.
