    Probably becasue the body shape used for the Civic SI in North America is not available here. Reminds me of the Alt Prowl mess.

    These are likely Heroes of Cybertron, the little $4 guys scaled for Primus from the last cartoon.

    Ahh, missed the word 'Cybertron' there. Most likely you are correct sir...

    Those small dudes are called "Legends", though. "Heroes of Cybertron" were the PVCs.

    (and might now also include the keychain re-releases)

    Either way, Alt Ravage is good. I'm not surprised about the lack of Rumble at all, after the Prowl debacle.

    Alt Grimlock and Ravage! w00t!

    As the SWTFs seem to be shelf-warmers at my local Woolworths and Toymaster, will they be catalogue-warmers for Argos?

    Well, Ravage is good news at least. Saves me having to import him. The lack of Rumble seems silly, especially since our first news about him came from the UK toy fair.

    Second hand information says that Argos weren't happy with the way Cyb Deluxes sold. That combined with the (further) price hike *might* just mean they're passing on them.


    The fact that they released them in the wrong order, then flooded the shelves with CD Hotshot and Downshift didn't help either.

    Is the Classics Megatron + Prime listing the 2-pack?

    Insert my usual grumble about how we pay double and then lose the DVD, stupid Hasbro....

    I don't think you're missing much.

    Yeah, but considering we get a royal screw-over when it comes to priceing, you think they could have made the effort to change the DVD region.

    I think economies of scale is part of the problem.... and English isn't the first language in every part of Europe either. Licensing rights probably come into it too.

    I think the Classics Megs + Prime are the individual voyager classics as people have been getting them from Argos already.
