    It's confirmed to be showing on Nickelodeon in the UK, but I don't think it's been confirmed exactly when it's going to start yet.

    The way I've been watching it is by downloading the torrents in the Animated forum sticky.

    It's airing here in Easter, last I heard. April is also when we're getting the toys, looks like a co-ordinated launch of show and toys.

    For once, Hasbro UK are planning something clever. Will it actually happen, that is another question.

    Nah, They will announce the release date of Toys and show over here as April 1st. Then on the morning of April 1st, Hasbro will release a statment saying this and only this.

    "April Fools!"

    That would be awesome. But I doubt it.

    animated toys are to be released in the UK in april? is that a rumor or for 'real'?

    even if they are and shipped to the USA you are looking at paying approx $35 plus shipping for a voyager without a markup!! if they were released early in the UK be tempted to get one ot two just to get over the 'want animated' urge.

    Actually dude, it's more like $40+ and shipping. Really not worth it.

    your right, the exchange rate is good for heading west but not east!!

    worst exchange rate for buying from blighty for many, many years.

    if they do come out in april i'd be tempted still! but likely i'll wait til august although most of my family is out in the UK so its always an option.

    As far as I know from my friends at Hasbro UK, we are getting the toys in June.

    Plus we also partially rely on US safety testing to be completed for our release which also counts against an earlier release

    Indeed. Rather strange how my second-tier supplier says April still... I'll go with Hitch on this one.
