    Apologies if this has been said but for fans based in UK/Ireland it is virtually impossible for us to find misfire at a brick and mortar store because Hasbro decided in their infinite wisdom that they were cancelling wave 5 and presumably slugslinger here to make way for potp.

    So to get this guy you have to buy online. I snagged the takara version through a specialist store. But its beyond frustrating for us here.

    Australia's basically in the same boat. We got a few in Sydney, less in Melbourne, a couple across Australia...and then nothing.

    And now, according to the sales guys at the Sydney Hasbro POTP event, POTP is basically coming to shelves in the third week of January to everywhere but Kmart (and of course David Jones, because they don't stock TFs anymore). This also means bye bye Overlord and Ramhorn.

    I think it's safe to assume he's not coming. The best thing to do is go to the TCCA Facebook BST group and ask around for the ones. A lot of people buy things just to play a bit for a few months, then they sell them off.

    So no Overlord on shelves? If so that really sucks, he is/was my most anticipated figure of TR
