    I've been away from the Transformers news for a few months and I'm just trying to get caught back up on these guys.

    I know that aside from the convention specials, Arcee, Bee and Starscream that most of the rest never made it to the US.

    I was wondering if there has been any news along that front. ie. has Hasbro made any progress towards shipping the rest of the line to the United States?

    They'll all be (re-)released as TRU exclusives later this year in the US.

    Negative ghostrider.

    1) No re-release of Bumblebee, FE Bumblebee wasn't shown at SDCC.

    2) No re-release of Cliffjumper FE which wasn't available in the US - sort of. The updated Cliffjuper FE will will be re-released with terrorcon deco.

    Oh yeah, I forgot about them switching BB for Terrorcon CJ. No great loss though. :D

    These FEs are all shelfwarmers here in Canada. *sigh*We have the Prime FEs, but haven't got past wave 1 of Prime RiD.

    Is that so? Makes me appreciate my original FE CJ even more now that I know the normal version is not going to see American retail, especially since I paid $50 for the damn thing in all his awesome tri-hand-cannon glory.

    The Bee's are all substandard stock, hoping for a nice package. It's time to move to Canada!

    The FEs have all been back on the shelves for a while here in Taiwan. They are slowly being bought up I suppose but they are not hard to get ahold of here at all. And I see ALL of them on shelves.

    Well I already have Arcee, Bee and Scream from last fall. I was just hoping that Prime, Bulkhead and CJ would end up on shelves here in Texas.

    Looks like I will have to start keeping an eye on TRU again.

    Are FE Optimus and Bulkhead still shelfwarming in Canada? I'd be more than happy to trade a boatload of RiD deluxes from the later wavers to get ahold of those two.

    Nope, just the deluxes. I could very easily get you 50 fe bumblebees, within a day. Could probably find you 20 starscreams and 5 cliffjumpers in that time. I see less arcees, but I could still find them.

    What Joalro said. I just picked up CJ, RC, and BB yesterday and there were also plenty of SSs.

    They actually did say FE toys will make it over here. Soon it will be just as easy to walk into a store and find FE Bulkhead or Vehicon as it is to find RiD Bulkhead and Vehicon.

    It will be so much different than the current situation! :p

    Dude, I'm trippin' Bulkheads out here! :lol 

    Seriously, though, all four Voyagers are readily available at most of the local haunts here.

    Where are you located?!? And could I persuade you to pick up an FE CJ, Optimus & Bulkhead for me? That would be amazing!
