    To my surprise, I found these two (quite a bit later than their US and other European release date) today in Budapest, the Játékvár toy shops. Even more surprising, they only cost 14000 HUF (48.45$/45.6 EUR) which is a fairly good price compared to what the TR and CW Voyagers are sold for in the same store.

    I think releases this late shouldn't be counted as news.

    Would you apply the same logic if a toy was available elsewhere in the world for nine months before the first confirmed United States or United Kingdom sighting?

    Nah, leaders actually sell out fast here. Only CW Leaders before this were regular and Armada Megs in Tesco and they were gone in a month.

    Yeah, we in Hungary actually had Titans Return legends about 3-4 months before most of the USA... with this logic, those news would not had to be reported?

    Besides, any European release is news for all Europeans - when stuff gets released in Germany and Slovakia, it gives me some idea on what might also come out here soon. (or much much later)

    Huh, here all i see on shelves for leaders are Skywarps. Like, everywhere. Too bad there's no business model for "this toy hasn't sold in this one area and has a ton of excess stock, so lets move it somewhere that hasn't gotten any yet"

    I thoroughly enjoy your posts on this forum (Especially all the work you did in helping people like myself getting Deluxe Groove) but I have a counterpoint. In respect to the US vs rest of world arguments; the US is a really, really big place. As a collector living Ohio, hearing about a release in Hungary is about as useless to me as hearing of reports from California; it could be a month or 2 before I see something hit here, and I work/live in Columbus (capital). I don't mean to disrespect the international community here, but I would never expect to see many-month-later sighting in Ohio hitting the frontpage. If a toy hits the wild; sure the first sighting, regardless of country, is news. By comparison certain regional first sightings might be newsworthy, but after a point it's clutter and should maybe just stay in the individual Sightings thread, that's where I have to go to get my "real" sightings anyways. Just my long winded 2 cents.

    Now Hungary can also find these in stores instead of any of the transformers toys they\'re actually looking for, just like America.

    Man, your stores need to contact our stores to get that stock since there are a lot of figures.

    Heh, funny coincidence that I finally decided yesterday to pick up a Skywarp that had been hanging around for a while. :p

    In regards to the Leader line, TRU in Spain seems to be obsessed with Leader Ultra Magnus...you can find a whole army of them on the shelves...for months and months now...
    and only found 1 Skywarp in the smaller retail Juguettos.
    Laughable...(laughing better than crying, I guess...)

    it seems I will have to keep importing :rolleyes:

    Here, we never had Magnus... or Jetfire before him. Only Megatrons.
    Though who knows, maybe he will pop up too in a year? :D 

    And Europe is about as much of a big place as the USA. So with this logic, you in Ohio would be totally uninterested in something found in Dallas? So it should not be posted?

    I will never understand by what logic Hasbro Europe operates, and why it distributes toys seemingly at random between countries.
    Now apparently, all the Skywarps and Starscreams are here, and all the Thundercrackers in Slovakia. :D

    I absolutely think it should be posted...in the Sightings thread for Hungary (you started it!)...which you didn't even post there.

    Hungary Transformers Sightings

    Then people from Hungary and surrounding countries can check it if interested, just like I do for Ohio and it's surrounding states. I was just merely stating that if every state and country posted "news" like this on the frontpage then nothing else would get through. Which, after looking through the threads, why aren't other countries using the Sightings threads? It's a ghost town. Meanwhile, Ohio (for example) has 981 pages.
