    SWTFs are out in the UK already? :lol 

    What was that again? "We can't do anything about having to wait for six months after the US release before we can release a toy domestically"? :lol 

    Just FYI, the SWTFs are also out in Germany. OFFICIALLY.

    I'm not surprised in the slightest, sadly.

    Yep - they've been out about a month now. Most Argos' stores got them in for their new catalgoue release, which was on the 21st Jan I think. It's just sticked US stock, but it's definitely Hasbro UK's stickered stock.

    Oh yeah, that six month thing was always rubbish. Like the excuse this year that Cybertron had taken so long for it's UK release because they had to wait for UK toyfair to sell it - even though it's in the new Argos catalogue, so they must have known about it for more than four months, and inparticular despite the fact they showed Cybertron at the *last* UK toyfair. Heck, that's where Supreme Starscream's existance was first confirmed.

    Hasbro UK's cunning ruse destroyed by the fact that, unfortunately for them, we're not goldfish and remember last year.

    As an ultimate act of irony & idocy, I will import the UK release since I missed the Hasbro one.

    You could just wait, it's coming out in the US again at some point. Save on shipping and stuff.

    don't expect to find any transformers apart from micromaster trainbots, snarl and sideways.

    and it will all be overpriced

    good news for UK kitbashers, he'll be warming shelves for ages to come now, just like the re-issues at TRU.
    We'll never get another one of the more collector related toys outside of imports now :(

    I'm not 100% sure, but I remember reading it in of the news threads (about the movie I believe) pretty recently.

    It's for sure. Can't remember the date, but the contents will be revised to be more 'Movie acurate' (probably a copy of the (animated) movie)

    The downside is the price appears to be going up.
