    What Hasbro said did sound promising, but I'm definitely not expecting it.

    All I want is a Voyager Prime. I'd like a Deluxe Megatron, but Prime has become a personal grail for me.
    If they did release them, I really hope it's as an easier-to-get store exclusive both online and in a BnM place. TrU or Wal Mart seem like the most logical choices, but I'm not holding my breath.

    It always cracks me up when threads of news are linked to other sites like it isn't posted in this news section.

    That said, re: the OP:

    Yes, if you import them.

    Not necessarily. The RTS line was "cancelled" if I remember correctly, and it ended up at discount stores. Granted, that was a different situation, but Hasbro did say at Botcon that getting the FE figures out is "a priority" so I wouldn't just throw all hope out the window.

    RTS wasn't actually cancelled, in the way FE was. RTS had absolutely awful distribution, but some of the figures did show up at certain retail stores (I even found the first wave of Deluxes at a semi-local Target, albeit a few months after they were supposed to be out, and after I already had them). As far as we know, the FE figures really were cancelled, in that they were never shipped to the US, and probably were never even packaged for sale here, seeing as places like BBTS that had them on preorder had to cancel.

    yes but rts was available at main chains in the states too, just not for very long. target, kohls, and tru all had them in stock at some point, because a production run was produced for the american market.

    that was not the case with the later FE deluxes and voyagers. they never went into production for the american market because there was no demand from the big chains. I really don't think the FE molds will show their heads in the states again unless they slip them back into the RID line with possible repaints.

    I'm kind of surprised people even still care that much about FE figures. They've been cancelled for months. I figured that anyone who really wanted them would just find a deal online by now.

    From the wonderful Botcon coverage boy Sol Fury:

    While it's not a "Yes they'll be available this fall" type of statement, it's a lot stronger statement than the standard "we're looking into it" statement we typically get.

    I have for the Deluxes. But I can't justify the price of the Voyagers. If they get re-released, I would freaking love to have them. But at the price people are selling them for now, no, it's not an option.
