    We're all too upset over here in the U.S. at being the last place to get them.
    Seriously, are they even going to sell at this point? Kids probably don't think that toys are even going to be released for the show by now, since we're at the end of Season 2 and the figures won't be out for another month yet.

    I'll have to check my local TRU once my paycheque is in, they've been pretty well stocked lately (don't seem to be many TF fans in my vicinity, all the more for me!)

    Personally, I think it's great that finally some international markets get the jump on US collectors.

    But... having said that, I am a bit peeved at the delay (planned or otherwise) getting these toys to the shelves. Yes, anticipation is part of the fun. But I'm worried that by the time this stuff catches on, the movie line for TF2 will come along and obliterate it. Hopefully there is room for both lines to co-exist.

    TF movie toys came out less than 12 months ago. They are already compressing their 18-month schedule.

    We will get them soon enough.

    I agree with this. But then again, if TF2 doesn't offer much new, I'll only really be interested in the Animated and Universe lines anyway. The movie toys were awesome... but aside from new characters, there isn't much left to do.

    Despite my rather negative outlook on it, though, I'm surious as to what's in store.

    Also, just for the sake of saying so, I'm happy for the non-US countries getting something first for a change. :)

    Oddly, I've checked the UK sightings thread on Seibertron and can't find any trace of the sighting they mention. Is it lies?

    Another thing that Hasbro is losing out on which is exactly happening to me is loss of hype. Since March i've placed so many preorders at HTS and was so hyped for this line but as time has dragged i'm just not that hyped anymore and i'm about to cancel all my preorders. I may pick a few up when I finally see them on the shelves but now that time has passed I just don't feel like dropping $300 bucks on the line now.
