    Interesting how in some regions the packaging for this has 'Premier Edition' on it, like in the U.K., but in others it doesn't.

    For the price it should have had a more metallic looking paint.

    Oh, I didn't realize this was news.

    I also saw the helmet released at the St.Laurent Toys R Us in Ottawa yesterday. Didn't catch the price though.

    Oh yaaaaaaay... They won't release half of the Generations stuff but we got this instead. Totally makes up for it.

    We've got things first before. Unfortunately, it's usually just crap like this.

    Wasn't it great when we could buy Thrilling 30 toys at any toy shop? Oh wait.

    Thanks Hasbro.

    Saw the helmet on Valentine's Day in Australia too
    At the Zing in the Melbourne CBD
    can't remember the price, and it's not listed on their website so I can't look it up. If I end up back at a Zing (which I no doubt will) I'll confirm the price. And get photo proof

    Woah, they had Thrilling 30 toys in our stores?! No way! I take it back, Hasbro is obviously amazing at distribution. It's like how every time I walk into a store and find all the Yo-kai Watch merchandise ever released, and-

    I can't keep this up. Hasbro's distribution sucks ass.

    Okay, it's not the end of the world. That's good.
    That actually wasn't their fault, for whatever reason no retailers over here wanted to pick it up.
