    The Titans Return Titan Masters have seen terrible distribution in Germany. Basically, the assortment stopped after wave 2 as far as most retailers were concerned. Up until recently, I only ever saw wave 4 (Shuffler and Repugnus) at Intertoys, a regional chain (almost completely limited to a single federal state, with only one additional store down south in Frankfurt) with a Dutch parent company that gets its stock from the Netherlands. Wave 3 was a complete no-show.

    Recently, however, waves 2, 3 and 4 (3 to a lesser extent, though) have appeared at Action, a discount chain with a Dutch parent company (a different one than Intertoys) that also stocked the previously rarely-seen Combiner Wars Voyager Class Scattershot and Onslaught in large quantities at the same time. Basically, they're comparable to US chains Ross or Five Below in terms of their significance to the toy retail market.

    Today, NTF Archive member Magmatron finally found Titan Master Ramhorn from wave 5 at an Action store in Germany's capital Berlin, selling for an impressive 3 Euros per figure. This is particularly significant since thus far, the only confirmed sighting for Ramhorn in Europe hailed from France (though he might have seen a release in Russia as well, as he's available from several online retailers there).

    Supposedly it's the more common, darker variant of Ramhorn.

    Titan Masters seem to have had terrible distribution across Europe, the UK hasn’t seen any since wave 2.

    Hope B&M get them eventually, only need Ramhorn to complete them.

    Same here in Latin America. Sadly they were total shelf-warmers here.

    titan master availability is still miles ahead of other size classes where I live.
    currently the only generations figures available in my city are titan masters, and scattershot and onslaught.
    the last legends or larger titans return figures disappeared months ago, and POTP wave 1 still hasn't arrived yet.

    I was happy to have found fangry a while ago at action.

    I am very curious as to what @Nevermore is like IRL. I imagine him as being this fandom's version of Brainiac, a very very smart fellow with like 500 different computer monitors and a figure collection the number of which falls between that of Thew and TJOmega.

    I also imagine he sounds like Aleister Black.

    More like a guy with a laptop and way too little room in his apartment. :)

    It's pretty bad here in Western Canada, they skipped Shuffler, Reupugnus and Ramhorn.

    Weird, Repugnus and Shuffler were not that hard to find here in Calgary up to a couple weeks ago. I'm despairing of ever finding Ramhorn though. Walmarts out east got a few of them but not a peep out here, distribution seems to be all over the map. I may start sticking my head in Winners and Marshalls, that's where I found T30 Gears after he disappeared from most stores.

    Don't tell me this. Now you've made me hopeful that we'll see him down here in Australia, which we won't.

    Sure we will, randomly in a Reject Shop in maybe 12 months time, hundreds of him. Like that time they had the random $30 Leader Jetfires!

    The Reject Shop is so devoid of Transformers right now. Except for those Figit Cube stuff & blind bag Tiny Titans.

    Hopefully this means they will be showing up in more countries and more online stores, for those of us in countries that missed it.

    If you live in the US, check out Five Below. I found him there today. Never saw him in a WM or Target.
