    The case appears to be the same proportions as previously reported for the US:

    Confirmed on the case assortment. Annoyed I didn't catch the autocorrect on my phone for Triggerhappy!

    Breakaway was purchased by someone else at the same time.

    Also, they wouldn't scan at first but eventually they sold them to me as £12.49 each TRA GEN figs (once they decided what code to use). I don't know if that means they're marked down for the Black Friday sale or if they just picked an old code that was already marked down - I wasn't about to question it!

    TORMENT... I'm eager to buy Hot Rod, but know I should wait until Takara show off theirs... and then he appears right on my doorstep! My wallet has entered the danger zone.

    Aw shucks. If I'd realised it was a first UK sighting then I'd have posted in news. It would've been cool to get my first news credit.

    Still, getting frontpaged nearly makes up for stubbing my toe on a curb 30 minutes after TRU! Now can't walk and on my way to A&E...

    You did get a news credit, check the bottom of the story & the box by your posts.

    Titans Return Deluxe Wave 3 in the UK - Transformers News - TFW2005

    I'm always very careful to make sure that anyone who posts something in UK sightings gets named in a post here so they'll get the credit for it.

    And not only is the first UK retail sighting, it's the first worldwide retail sighting:

    Newly released and upcoming toys: Hasbro edition

    Well done for finding them.

    Mine are coming when Kapow get them but I'll have my eyes open for these and the othersize classes if I get out,

    Oh sweet! Not having had one before, I didn't know what I was looking for. I checked on my profile but maybe my phone just loaded a cached page.

    Cheers!

    I'm right in thinking that though the Voyager wave 3 & Legends wave 3 have come from certain online retails, they haven't been seen at retail ANYWHERE and neither has Sixshot or the Titanmasters?

    (though I suspect they might be out in the Far East and nobody's said - Blacklai's Sixshot review for example)

    I don't know what the most crazy thing about this is.
    That the UK retailers got Wave 3? Screw that, got it before anywhere else within Europe and America, and even apparently elsewhere?
    That Toys R Us got it in, despite my local store not even carrying Wave 2 outside of Leaders and Titan Masters when last I checked (last Saturday)?
    Or that this sighting was in that very same store?
    What a turn of events...

    Come on Canada, don't take too long on this one.

    I'm dying to finally get rid of my Classics Rodimus.

    Breakaway is one per case? weird. I wonder if Takara will do him, cos he is a bit plain, and the colour distribution isn't quite there (he was the Powermaster I had as a kid), I like his head tho.

    Takara tend to aim for cartoon acuracy though- he was very plain in Masterforce.

    Looking at the trend so far, I suspect they just won't do him, at least as a regular release.

    SO FAR they've skipped the simple repaints (Sentinel Prime) and they have far fewer "slots" then Hasbro since they seem to do 2-4ish (have they ever done 5?) Legends releases a month, that gives them somewhere around 30 slots a year across all size classes.

    I'm suspicious that they will skip Voyager Megs n' Optimus and go straight to Blitzwing and Octane as well.

    I'd settle for him having blue arms and hands, and 'racing' on his windscreen.. also, plain tho they may be, Takara does tend to have better white plastic than Hasbro uses.

    If it looks like they're not doing him, I'll try and get one locally, but I may have to get some paint to him.

    .. I'll be gutted if they don't do Voyager Megs tho, Hasbro's is *almost* there, with a bit more paint in the right places and a tampo chest detail he'd be perfect. I do love the TR and LEGENDS stuff tho. Great toys.

    Lucky Brits. I just got wave 2 deluxes, let alone wave 2 voyagers or even wave 1 leaders in stores where I am in the USA.
