    Bit late for me, I imported the reissues.

    Still not interested in 20th anniversary Prime, at least not at £50.

    It is the 20th Prime figure, it's just not the year of the 20th anniversary anymore. It came out in 2004, 20 years after TFs debuted.

    I missed a bunch of the US reissues, so does this mean I can import Hot Rod, Rodimus, and Jazz soon? And do you think they'll get Soundwave?

    Woah those prices are very reasonable.
    Could do with a Smokescreen and a Thundercracker.
    Pity there's no TRU anywhere near me.

    Soundwave was never released in Hasbro's G1 Reissues.

    Hot Rod and Jazz have both been through already. Soundwave was never released in the US and we're reasonably certain this is all overstock from there.
    As I've said it's almost certainly unsold stock from elsewhere, we're just being used as a dumping ground - like those Zoids Gojulas Gigas, Beserk Furys and Elephanders that have been showing in TRU, or the Zoids Blox in TK Maxx.

    Yay.

    I'm a Canadian and I'm going to the UK (again) at the end of Feb.

    I'll be able to pick up 20th Prime for at least $50 cheaper than I ever seen him here in Canada!

    If I see one I may have to pick up a Hasbro 20th Anniversary Prime, to go with my two Masterpiece Convoys. Hopefully it's the black gun version. I'll buy Thundercracker too. Hopefully we'll have Skywarp turn up at some point too.
