Ozformers is reporting that the latest issue of Toy Retailer Magazine states that Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen will premiere in theatres in Australia on June 25, 2009. This is the same day as the German premiere and a day before the currently scheduled United States premiere. The line of Revenge of the Fallen toys, per the magazine, should be on Australian retail shelves by May 31, 2009.

Toys should be out by May 31st, while the movie will be out June 25th. Yay.
Cool if the movie is out then we will get it earlier than the Americans again!
Damn it, why can't the toyline be out earlier... grrr...

About a month between toy releases and film release? Not bad. I don't remember when the figures actually hit shelves the last time around. Did they try to do a same day launch as the film?

If my memory serves me well, the Protoforms of Optimus Prime and Starscream hit the shelfs about 20th of May in Aussie.

The first movie's Preview Protoforms hit in late April 2007, I believe. If I recall correctly, the official release date for the rest of the Movie line was early June, but some stores didn't adhere to the street date so I found leader class Prime in mid-May.

lets hope they actually have enough stock this time around. Has anyone forgotten how impossible it was to find a bumblebee?

If the UK release date turns out to be 25th of July again I swear I will write hundreds of letters of complaint to paramount.

I have. But I wasn't really looking for Bumblebee sooo...
I did see a bunch of BBs on craigslist shortly after the movie came out for like $50.

So no preview toys this time around? Or we're just talking about the main line here?

It's probable that the protoform Soundwave test shot we've seen is a preview figure.

So according to usual international release schedules they should be out in the USA like, tomorrow?

*shrug* Australia sometimes gets stuff before the US does. Look at those combiners that have yet to be officially announced for some reason.

Because it is about a month after the official release date of the 26th June (i.e. the UK fans will get screwed over ......... again!)
Big Bot
So, Paramount announce 25th June in Australia, despite updating their website in the last week to 26th June? sigh.

1 month later, despite the UK producing the largest international box office gross for the first film.
llamatron
So is July 25th confirmed for the UK?

Gaaah, I'm going to be out of Australia for June / most of July and in the UK instead. I'll probably miss both countries release date. Sheeeeeeeeit.

And this, my friends, is how internet rumors get started.
Big Bot
To put an END to such rumours, the only official Paramount UK date given so far is "Summer 2009".

New movies over here are released on Thursdays (apart from the occassional preview on a Wednesday night). The 26th of June 2009 is a Friday, hence a relase date of the 25th in Australia. Dunno what the standard is in the US for release dates?

We tend to get movies early these days.

Besides, TF1 came out in the US a day early as well.

Yeah, like Animated Jetfire and Jetstorm, yeah I have the pack.
It`s kinda wired since they are manufactured in America.

I'm not staking my credability on it, but I'd be pretty sure that the *official site* has their date wrong. The only reasons we have movies NOT released on a thursday (25th is a Thursday) are Boxing Day, other important dates/public holidays, and charity events.
There isn't anything special about the 26th June in Australia (that I know of), and the 25th June date was quoted from the presentation of Hasbro AUS to Paramount AUS... Surely one of those two would have corrected the date if it was incorrect.

The *only* other thing I could think of is coinciding an international 'same-day' release, but I can't (objectively) imagine this movie being important enough for that...

Not really - they're manufactured in Asia for the most part.
