    O.k, after finding the attached image on an ebay item, and having bought Crumplezone, Snarl, + Sideways myself, and my friend having bought Prime.

    What the hell is going on over here in the UK, First off, where the hell did this guy get these figures, nowhere ive found stocks anything other than :-
    .Prime
    .Jetfire
    .Crumplezone
    .Snarl
    .Sideways

    These are the only few ive seen on sale, or even confirmed to be available in the U.K.


    My question is, what happened to :-
    .Deluxe wave 1
    .Deluxe wave 2
    .Scourge
    .Megatron
    .Scout wave 1 (where did the guy get his set :huh )
    .Vector Prime.

    And why the hell did Hasbro UK just skip straight to the 2 new molds for deluxe wave 3 (Yup, only 2 deluxes available).
    The deluxes, Voyagers, Cyb Def Team, and Megatron were the main draw To this line for me.

    Come on Hasbro UK, get it together.

    If anybody can answer any of my questions, or provide reasons for the above mentioned things please post them.


    EDIT: Cant put an attachment on, so I'll link you to the ebay page)

    Ohh I don't know.

    Maybe he took a magical flying metal bird across the large vast ocean to another country and using this wonderful thing called money bought items from this magical land where the figures are already released and then brought them over to this country to sell on eBay as he knew that fans over here might pay for them.

    As for why Hasbro UK like to rearrange when figures are released, well you'd probably have more luck finding Atlantis, Alien contact or predicting when the next earthquake is going to happen.

    Maybe UK retailers find that the sales figures do not do so well there, as they do in North America. Or they hate you....either or.

    I feel bad for you UKers, but if it's any consolation, I hardly find many of the toys either and I'm the naughty USA :(

    They only hate we Australians slightly less, if its any consolation. No Alternators at all and Cybertron toys are practically an endangered species on my side of the country.

    Wel, uh, *I* live in the UK, and *I've* found Vector Prime, Overhaul, Scattorshot and Ransack, so, uh... yeah. Don't assume that just because you haven't seen them personallu, they're not out. 'Cause these ones are.

    The only things we have yet to see from what was US Wave 1 are the deluxes and Megatron (though I haven't see Jetfire yet myself). For some reason we've just got those two Wave 3 deluxes early. It's odd, but not something to start screaming about yet, as long as we get the other Wave 1 and Wave 2 deluxes down the line.
