    Well, Wave 2 (Prime) has been SEEN, but he really doesn't seem to have reached saturation yet.

    Not imports. The pics provided by Boardwise and Sinestro show the multilingual packaging only used in Europe.

    As far as I am concerned, it's a proper release when it's available outside stores like FP. Still, it does bode well for a proper release soon.

    Geezz...
    First people complain that we don't get some figures from the series.
    Then you give them proof that this series has all the figures coming out here.
    Then they moan about where the item was purchased.

    Some people are never happy.
    Next time I don't think I'll bother reporting getting Animated in Euro packaging.

    Yet. Most likely he'll show up within the next few weeks if not week. Remember, he was sighted at US retail not long ago. (relatively speaking)

    And besides, FP usually charge an arm and a leg, but it's great to know that these are out at least - thanks, Boardwise. :)

    I aggree, Forbidden Planet aren't exactly a high street store. I might go have a look tonight after work but I quite often say that and then can't be bothered.
    Hope they show up in John Lewis soon, that is but a short drive away. :D

    I wonder if Ace Comics will have them in today. I think they used to be called Forbidden Planet ages ago.

    Forbidden Planet used to deal mainly in imported Transformers. Recently however, they've been getting mostly official UK stock, certainly where the Movie and Animated stuff is concerned.

    I'd consider this to be an official release, especially as it's all in European packaging.

    granted, euro packing, but until they start showing up in places like TRU and argos i would say its a mass release. you try finding a wave 2 animated figure at high street stores, i cant find them :(  so finding a wave 3 or 4 in a high street chain, no chance. but as i said i think its great that they will be comming here and kudos for finding them.
