    Not anything massive but I've got confirmation of the release of Inferno and Vector Prime which have shipped to retailers today, we dont have ours yet but probably worth all you UK peep's hitting TRU and Argos this weekend.

    Happy hunting guys and have a great weekend

    Yes! There was one isolated sighting last week, looks like that wasn't a one off!

    I can't wait to finally get myself Inferno!

    I have yet to see Vector Prime, and just saw Inferno a few days ago, and I live within 30 mins of 3 Walmarts, 3 Targets, and a TRU in NY. Good for you guys in the UK.

    Dont know what shops bud, hopefully all the big guys, we'll have em but its nice to pick things straight off the shelves get em home and rip the sucker out of the packaging :) 

    Its nice to know Universe is still getting new releases in the UK, hopefully means Dinobot and Smokescreen will get an official release.

    If I can get any store updates I'll post them but dont hold out too much as its the weekend now so all the reps have buggered off home.

    Oh wow thats so funny! I got sick of waiting, and went to Andy and Kapow to get Henkie Inferno, Hound and Cyclonus ( great service btw Andy! ), not after having them for 2 days, they get released lmao.

    Oh well, i'll probably pick him up anyways for a kitbash.

    Bollocks! I've just had an inferno shipped from BBTS because I didn't think he was going to appear here! (which will make him more expensive with the current exchange rate)/

    Ah well, happy hunting everyone else!

    To be honest, I'd go with the two deluxes, but only because they're two of the most awesome toys I've picked up recently. Swindle is very fun and spot on to the show. Hound is excellent and comes with Ravage who is worth half the price of admission on his own.

    As good as Inferno is, you'll probably get more for your money with the Deluxes.
