    Neat, wasn't expecting to see those over here. Only wish I had a Fortress Maximus for them to populate.

    A quick question, does Megatron still have an orange tip?

    Because the UK isn't the US. Different laws.

    Yeah since 2007 it seems. British Toy and Hobby Association - Work

    The reason I asked, was because UK residents could import MP Megatron with no problems and yet our American friends had to have the orange caps fitted on in order to get them in the country.

    I have a bad feeling about how the hunt for Windcharger is going to go.

    Fortunately I got pre-orders in for all the Legends figures with BBTS. Normally I only order import stuff through them but in this case I had to lock-it-in.

    I might snap and get what I need through HTS or something.

    The legends are among my most anticipated Transformers for the next few months. Can't wait for them to hit retail in the USA.

    The Scouts have been spotted in both Tesco & Asda I got all 4 myself this Tuesday Afternoon in a Suffolk Tesco (They also had them in Norwich I hear). They didn't have any legends though.

    Did I dream it I could have sworn I read that Windcharger was supposed to have little circular magnets in his cannons - but he does not (Pity).

    I look forward to seeing the Legends even if paying anything up to a fiver for them might wrankle me a bit.

    Maybe they ordered a case and just happened to get it the same time Tesco did.

    Question about the other figures included in this wave. Are they all on RTS packaging or are the HFTD scouts still on their HFTD packaging? I assume WC and CS are on the new RTS packaging but I'm curious about Sunspot and the others.
