    Damn it I wanted Long Haul as well. Still thats typical Hasbro UK they screwed us on the final 3 waves of Universe deluxes and Animated voyagers and now this. Not so bothered about wave 4 deluxes as i got what i want from that wave already,but for those who haven't got them it's a shame. The Ice Cream truck is awesome as is Jolt.

    I wonder when Wave 5 will reach TRU as want to get Arcee (really don't know why but I do) and maybe Swerve but i'll pass on Skorps.

    It's a pain when you have to pay way over the odds for a figure like Animated Wreck Gar just because Hasbro have rubbish distribution and pack him with Atomic Lugnut who was a really pointless repaint and didn't sell well.Yet they don't seem to stock the waves we all want and flood everywhere else with Animated Voyager Grimlocks,Lugnuts and Blitzwings. Yet Shockwave and Skywarp only got a Forbidden Planet release.

    Does this mean the wave 4 deluxes and Long haul won't get released in the uk at all unless you buy off the internet?

    I certainly hope that we will see ; Jolt, Blazemaster, Dead End *Deluxe* Mudflap/Skids (Ice Cream Truck), Long Haul, & Grindor. in the Uk even if some of them are via American Imports.

    I've been pondering getting the Ratchet & Grindor Twin pack though as I think it's still cheaper than buying them seperately packed.

    It's annoying really as all I was planning on importing was the Target edition (Red) The Fallen, and the 3 pack which contains Blue Soundwave, Megatron & The Normal Color The Fallen.

    Who exactly are the wave 4 deluxes we will now be unable to get? And for that matter, has anybody seen the wave 4 voyagers? I'm still unsucessful in my hunt for Mix (though I admit I haven't really been trying, work and preparatory study getting in the way).

    Dont start me on the ICT twins! I didnt want these guys until recently... and guess what...? Kapow are out of stock on them, too! And now we hear that the UK wont get them at all, and Play have them... currently in over a months time (if at all)!

    So, Hasbro decide that the US are really selling well with certain things (ICT twins), so the UK dont get them, forcing us to buy from the US scalpers, who are the cause of the problem in the first place! Its times like this where I just think that I will not bother collecting when I have to fight the company that makes them to spend my money! :crazy: 

    Maybe I should cut out the middle man and just go ahead and buy Andy a car up front! :D

    Cause manufactoring more of the toys would just be a dumb idea. The logic here is quite possibile the stupidest thing I've ever heard. I thought we had things bad in Canadian distribution, but dang. Poor UK...

    USA, USA, USA. Just kidding. I thought after the first movie, Hasbro would have distribution issues figured out this time around. Hopefully they all arrive for you all in due time.

    Unless their stock is diverted for the same reason, I wouldn't have thought so.
