    Oops I stepped in a land mine...
    I know uk gets boned on exclusives but i was under the impression the issue was poor retailer support not a lack of hasbro offering them. Even in the op it said they we looking for somebody to carry it not that somebody will be carrying

    Here's a list of the US Target Transformers Exclusives.

    Off the top of my head:

    The Classics Magnus/Skywarp box and waves 2 & 3 of the 2007 Movie scouts showed up at Woolworths.

    The Universe Legends 5 packs went to Argos.

    The ROTF Superion went on general release.

    Ravage Infiltration went to Sainsburys.

    I'm not 100% sure but from the 2007 movie "Evolution of a Hero" two-pack & "Generations Legends" *may* have gone to TRU.

    At least one, probably more, Target US Star Wars exclusive has also shown up at TRU

    the animated 2 packs ended up clogging testcos stores if I recall as well as Asda getting the movie 1 ramjet and sky warp repaints of Screamer.

    So we do get them... just never really the ones fans really want and it seems like it comes at the cost of later waves.

    I expect Lead foot to be a Target exclusive. You think they're going to let us buy a toy at Wal-Mart with the Target logo on it?

    Wherever the larger Leadfoot figures end up being sold, I must have at least 2 of each. I've never bought a figure from overseas before, but I would have to in this case. God I hope it's a US Target exclusive, at the very least.

    I'm pretty sure we'll get a Deluxe Class Leadfoot here in the States, as a Target excluisve; seriously, I highly doubt Target would pass on a toy that could potentially have there logo on it...

    You'd think Leadfoot would be a Target Exclusive since it is the Target car. Be funny if it was a Walmart exclusive instead.

    Oh Snap! I don't know why I never thought of that before. His paint scheme would limit his sale locations. }:|

    To me, this pretty much confirms that Leadfoot will be a repaint of either Topspin or Roadbuster. No way would Hasbro spend that much money to make a new mold that's only being sold from one store.

    It's a shame, if you ask me. The same thing happened with the Bike Sisters from ROTF, and Elita-1 had an awesome robot mode. Leadfoot looked cool too...

    I wouldn't count leadfoot out we haven't even seen his deluxe yet. Plus just because it's an exclusive doesn't mean it has too be a repaint.

    what an absolute joke, what the hell is hasbro playing at?

    Fans are gonna want to complete their wreckers and they limit the options, this is not only not fair to us collectors but also to young kids that also like transformers and want to complete the set. They are not only depriving us but they are assuredly depriving kids as the scalpers will rise again.

    Hasbro has dropped another clanger yet again, they are a horrible company.

    Wal-Mart exclusive Deluxe Optimus Prime would like a rebuttal.
