    I know its almost saturday, so its not really relevant that much anymore, but tons of people have said the street date was lifted on all figures, even going so far as to argue their heads off about it and how they should be able to get them.

    So i was wondering, besides the go ahead to sell Deluxes, where is this official notice at? (Dont say Hasbro.com, give a direct link.) I've just been curious after seeing people argue so much about it.

    After talking to a VERY informed guy at Target, I'm pretty sure the only street date lifted was for the deluxes, and even after that conclusion, he refused to sell them to me. I didn't bother to argue with him, though. Saturday is close enough.

    I work in a Toys R Us in CA, and we almost got in trouble for selling some "Cyber Stompin" figures, since we cant really sell them yet. So, unless there stores got something in the news mine didnt, their gonna be in a lot of trouble.

    According to this thread in News and Rumours, they are available at "a lot" of places. And that the early release is not a fluke.

    I beg to differ.

    I would bet money most Targets are holding off 'till the street date. The five Targets near me are all standing firm on the release date.

    I'd say for every store that has put stuff out early, there are at least three more that are sticking to the date.

    With that said, there are people actively looking for the stuff in fairly large numbers...three Leader Primes were gone from my Target within a day, and $45 isn't just a "hey, that's neat" purchase by random toy aisle browsers.

    wal marts are bitches about the street date

    targets around here have been putting one deluxe out for every protoform sold.......sneaky bastards......

    ive only been able to secure bumblebee, barricade, and bonecrusher before the street date.

    and one incident being caught with a "case-fresh" jazz at the wal mart...... :\

    Only store that has "blocks" on their computers are WalMart and KMart.

    Target and the other stores don't seem to have that "block" in place for street dates. I know this because of some items a friend purchased about two weeks ago.

    I apologise if this is already common knowledge to everyone else but I'm not sure of it.

    Does anyone know when the movie toys are expected to be released in the UK?
