Thought I'd start a new thread before it gets lost in there somewhere... As Franco Villa from the Trans-Europe-Express group confirmed, Alternators Swindle has FINALLY been released in Italy. Note that Italy has so far gotten every Alternator that was released in European (six language) packaging, including Meister who was never available anywhere else in Europe. With Swindle having already been available in half a dozen other European countries, it was only a matter of time before Italy would get him. NOTE that the Italian release of Swindle still comes in the red box. He does NOT ship in the new bubble style box with the weird "2 in 1" arrow on it that was seen recently. So we still don't know where that packaging is headed for. According to an Italian store owner, the next Alternator to be released in Italy will be Decepticharge. Thanks again to Franco Villa for the news.
