    Last week a friend on the TMUK forum pointed me at a UK sighting for the Primemasters

    Over the weekend we had a tip off that the same store had Wave 2 Legends

    And this morning user @returner paid them a visit:

    All cards are UK stock and W2 Legends aren't available from Far East imports sites yet so we pretty much can rule out them being imports.

    EAN Codes:
    Battleslash: 5010993505869
    Roadtrap: 5010993505883
    Tailgate: 5010993505876

    Hasbro Product Numbers:
    Battleslash: 0917 E1157 EU4 E0602
    Roadtrap: 0917 E1158 EU4 E0602
    Tailgate: 0917 E1159 EU4 E0602

    Hopefully they start to spread further than Toy Planet soon. Really keen to nab a BattleTrap.

    I'll be interested to here if any other Toymaster, the group of independent toy retailers that Toy Planet is a part of, has them. Anyone able to do some leg work, there isn't one near me in Swindon?

    There's always a slight question mark over stores that are known to have imported in the past but if they were imports I'd be expecting US cards

    The PotP release over here is mind boggling, I haven't seen a single one yet.

    You and me both. UK Retail can be eccentric at the best of times but having the Wave 2 Legends already out before we've seen the rest of anything from Wave 1 is a strange one even by our standards.

    Before this the only place POTP had been seen was The Entertainer and that was just Legends wave 1

    Aye, UK stock is definitely around but it just seems to not be physically in the majority of stores yet for whatever reason. The stock Kapow had of the PotP leaders, last week, was UK stuff and not import too. As they specified that on their Facebook page. So for whatever reason it's struggling to find it's way onto physical store shelves at the moment, but it is "out there".



    It's doubly weird because when I go into the Nottingham Entertainer or Smyths, they have hardly any Transformer toys left so it's not like it's down to abundance of old stock clogging up shelves.

    Toys'R'Us has the regular mountain of movie guff, but they've always tended to be behind other stores on CW and TR anyway.

    Things are always slow this time of year for new stock getting out, it's around now at the end of Jan that things warm up again

    Hopefully we will see these in the States soon. I want Battletrap in the worst sort of way.

    Yeah, I really love the individual modes they gave the legends figures, they look so good and make such good use of their combining mass! The only thing more I would want is having Titanmasters sit inside instead of on top of the alt modes, but I think at the legends price point that's just asking for too much.

    I need to start hunting down the Leader Class figures soon. Can't wait for these to hit the shelves in the USA. With it looking like no differences between Has/Tak versions on this line, going to definitely need two sets of Battletrap. At least only one combiner announced thus far will "need" two sets for me, though I may need a second set of dinos.

    I'm jealous of the UK TF fans right now. I still haven't found Rodimus Prime and Optimus Prime in my area here in the U.S. :)

    So is it just the Battletrap and Tailgate legends in wave 2? Was wondering if another figure would be packed in with them.

    Battleslash, Roadtrap & Tailgate - Battleslash is missing in the above photo. See POTP Legends Wave 2 out in Singapore for pictures of the Hasbro US carded version.

    I'm assuming there's 3 each of the Battletrap pair and 2 of Tailgate, or there's some carryover from wave 1.

    Frikkin' love that new Battletrap. Him and Flywheels were always favourites of mine. Sadly, I don't think Scotland has any Toy Planets, but it's early days - I'm sure they'll arrive up here soon.

    And yeah, it's kind of mad those guys are out before practically any other Wave 1 has made it to retail!
