    One Scout and four half transformable RPM style vehicles - £23...

    Thats not good. Even when toys do get released here, they are over-priced.


    And Activators for £10.99.... I can't see them being much better than Animated Activators...

    Why have they added £3 to the PCC's, they're $20 in the states, what happened to their usual tactic of just changing the signs over... can't belive I'm complaining that they didn't do that. :rolleyes: 

    Oh well, at least seaspray is coming out, still need to get mindwipe though. :( 

    Thanks for the info Andy. :thumb

    Funny how early Wave 4 Deluxe cases had the ice cream van removed, and replaced with random Wave 1 Delxues due to 'demand'.

    ...but we still get more of Ratchet, inspite of LACK of demand.

    Still, depending on where you live, there's still enough of some earlier Voyager waves kicking around the place such that even in August, Seaspray and Banzai-tron may be an urban myth.

    I wish that list had a confirmation of Leader Starscream as well. Too much to hope for.


    There's a clear trend of Hasbro, UK, or US, dumping the after thought repaints on us but the grey/red Powerglide were released in a different order, and the red one was a store exclusive anyway.

    No news of Human Alliance? Hmm.

    Glad the voyagers are back on the cards though, pity I've already got Seaspray as he's the only one I wanted out of that lot.

    Based on what's been said before about production patterns, Mindwipe proably hasn't been produced for a few months.

    Unless they purposely rotate it into a case that Hasbro UK can order, the odds of Hasbro UK shipping it would seem very very slim indeed.

    Still when they repaint it in hot pink wth neon green highlights, i'm sure Hasbro UK will be knee deep in the mold.


    Depends on if you view the case with Jazz and BB as a new line or a contintuation.

    HFTD may mean Hasbro (INC) /U.S. retailers see it as a new line.... in which case they get dibs before international markets.

    Semi-educated guesswork/specualtion. Feel free to disagree.

    HA doesn't seem to have been popular with retailers here, I've seen few sideswipes and not one single skids on shelves.

    HA is apparently over for the UK, blame Bumblebee, he's still clogging up shelves and we didnt have anymore product notification beyond Skids :(

    And who's in with Jazz? More bloody Bumblebees.

    Plenty of Sideswipes in my TRU last I looked though so I guess they really aren't doing so well. Skids seemed to clear out of the only ASDA I ever saw him in very quickly though.

    judging by the repaint everything culture going on I'm gonna assume that Wave 3 Voyagers will include a Mindwipe repaint, just a guess.... but I'll hold out on a wimm : )

    IIRC, HA Mudflap and Barricade are pretty scarce in the U.S too. Little wonder the line is in limbo in these parts.


    Got a Smyths nearby? 30% off.

    The sad thing is I just don't care about the UK releases anymore. They don't give me what I want from the line these days. I'll just import the few I want in the correct colours and it'll probably still not cost me much more than UK retail. And with molds just never making it over here that's another mark against UK TF.

    Bum.

    I'm only really after Deluxe Ironhide and HA Mudflap now, to go with my HA Skids. Looks like I'm gonna have to pay an idiotic price for both.

    Speaking of idiotic prices, £70 for Cyber Ops Bumblebee?!? Who are they kidding? :(
