    Thats what i thought when I saw them.

    Who knows what else Hasbro Uk has planned for release? Hoping for Blurr and Swindle in the next few weeks,not so much Blazing Lockdown.

    They had the Animated Legends Prowl and BB as well which only previously been released at Argos in a 3pk with Prime.

    Already got mine from Red Leader, but honestly, about damn time. Hopefully this means other new stuff like the aforementioned Swindle is coming. Oh yes.

    Kickass news! :D  :D  :D 

    I've had such a jonesing for new toys, and this one was right near the top of my list. To get it three months before we expected...looks like I'm going to be trawling me a few Asdas in the near future! :) 

    Question, though; what language is the comic in? I would assume English, but I just noticed the multiple languages given on the title there. Please tell me that doesn't extend to the in-comic text, a la the Armada mini-comics...that would certainly kill my buzz a little. :(

    OH! Oh YEAH! Been too long since there was something new to be bought! I don't have an Asda handy, but I'll be scoping Tesco's and Smyths on the way to work on the morrow...

    Can somebody please tell us or rather post a photo of the comic book cover because it looks a bit different than the U.S. version of the include comic.

    Ours says "Rise Of Safeguard" whereas this one says something much different

    It's multilingual. It's still rise of safeguard. The 3 languages in a speech bubble is a little distracting but its a good story.

    Aww...see, that's what I was hoping wouldn't be the case. :(  Is it still legible? I would have imagined that shrinking the text to fit three lots of text would be a little hard on the eyes...unless they increased the size of the balloons, or God forbid, abridged the dialogue. Can you confirm, Unitedbot? Here's the TFwiki page, with scans from the English-only version...is the art and dialogue the same?

    Cheers, Unitedbot; looks less than ideal, but more or less readable. Still, the clincher for me would be knowing whether or not all the dialogue is actually intact...can anyone who has the US set confirm if it's the same or not?

    Sorry to be so insistent about this, but the comic is a pretty big part of why I'm buying this; if it turns out that our version's been hacked up very badly, then I might just see if I can import a US version instead...

    I have compared the text from tf wiki and its different . So i guess it will cost £10 more for the US version.

    Well, pish on a stick. I'll probably just buy the trade IDW's putting out, then. It's got the proper issue in there.
