    Just a heads up for any lurking fans in Slovakia (Austria, Hungary).

    Alltoys stores have a nice variety of new TFs:
    - RID Minicon Battle Packs (Optimus, Sideswipe)
    - RID legends (Clampdown, Windblade, Drift, THunderhoof)
    - CW 2016 legends (Shockwave, Pipes, Buzzsaw, Chop Shop)

    They also have probably the cheapest CW Devastator in the world - they sell him for 59.99 EUR!!!
    At first I thought it had to be a mistake, maybe somebody forgot to print "1" at the beginning... I pointed out this little curious fact at the counter, but I was told not to worry, I was not the first person asking about it, they had already checked the price and it was correct. Well I can't argue about a 60 EUR Devi, can I? 60 EUR usually = 2 voyagers or 1 leader.

    Also, the groceries stores (of all the places) have some nowhere-else-seen items, too: Terno stores sell RID wave 2 minicons and Kaufland stores sell Battle Core Optimus.

    I think this is the first worldwide brick and mortar retail sighting for RID Legion Class wave 6. (Combiner Wars Legends Class wave 5 is already out in Australia.)

    It's also the first European retail sighting for the RID Mini-Con Battle Packs.

    Not the cheapest Devastator AT ALL

    Not even close, Canada has him for 69.97$ at costco which is about 50$ US and 46 Euros. So close but no cigar.

    Has CW Legends Wave 5 still not shown up at retail stateside?

    So weird for the Deluxe figures to beat them to market.

    No sighting yet.

    Also: Only one or two sightings of Scattershot, and only one indirect sighting of Onslaught.

    Nice finds, Pavol. Would be nice if Dev landed in Poland with a similar price, but knowing our luck that's not happening ;)

    Guys, remember this though as consolation for that deeply discounted Devastator.

    Firstly, this stuff is hard to predict. You could have waited for this to happen but then if it didnt, by the time you gave up, Devastator might then be scarce and selling for more on the secondary market. So its a very tough call.

    Secondly, this means waiting at least 6 months to get one, and like I said even then those who waited might not have gotten it (as this sighting isnt happening everywhere).

    So its just the luck of the draw for those who were pretty certain they would never pay more than 70$cdn for Devastator.

    Heh, that is the cheapest ever! :) 

    RID Legion (they are only calling the CW toys Legends - they are a size class larger) Wave 4 is also out in Hungary, saw them in Interspars. Got Clampdown and Windblade, they are adorable.

    They are also out in Hungary, in Interspars, so you might wanna check there, that place gets the toys from Germany. Found them on the same day as Pavol- we even phoned each other. :)

    That's wave 6, not 4. :) 

    Wave 4 was Night Ops Bumblebee and Alpine Strike Sideswipe. Wave 5 was Ultra Magnus and Patrol Mode Strongarm.

    This can't be regular european import channels at those prices. Let alone that anything past Defensor is still unseen for the most part?

    It's European packaging.

    Also, Germany got Legends Rodimus and Skywarp (plus the previously skipped Blackjack in a revision case), Deluxe Prowl, Sunstreaker, Ironhide and Mirage, and Voyager Battle Core Optimus Prime months ago, so it's hardly that "anything past Defensor is still unseen". And even if it was, that would have no bearing on Devastator, who's not even part of any assortment.
