    Any chance someone from the UK might give me the EAN barcode for Infernocus?

    Is that something exclusive to UK products? Cause if not I could go check the one at my US TRU after work.

    As Phil said. European releases have 13 digit EAN barcodes, non-EU releases have 12 digit UPC barcodes, which are entirely different numbers.

    2nd one is something to do with the product number, first 4 digits might be the assortment number? Next 5, C2024 is the product number

    Ok thanks. I've not a clue when it comes to stuff like that. I just buy the toys and admire everything on the box except for the barcode.

    Thanks kindly!

    First four digits are presumably the manufacturing date? March '17.

    Even if I actually liked the movie toys, the price would put me off. I'm not paying £38 for an Abominus repaint even with a new central figure or £22 for Deluxes.

    Yet I am okay with paying £30 for a Takara Deluxe, because Takara.

    Still waiting on TRU UK to get the TRU exclusive Velocitron set.. But no, more movie guys. Yay. (although that Megatron is quite nice, but I'll wait for a sale if at all, as I swore an oath: No price hiked movie toys!)

    I dont think toys r us in the uk will ever get the chaos of Velocitron PredaConvey because they care more about the movies and it was a usa exclusive only besides there was no metroplex or fort max Ebays the place for it your wasting your time on toys r us to have that set in store

    Is Infernocus worth it? Price aside, he looks a little unstable in package and I've toyed with the idea of picking it up now just in case later if I want it, after market prices may skyrocket. The individual bots look neat. Just wish he had more story than just being an obstacle for the good guys.

    It wasn't a "USA exclusive" seeing as it was also available at TRU in Hong Kong, Malaysia, Singapore and Canada.

    Besides, Thrilling 30 Metroplex and Titans Return Fortress Maximus were also released in the UK (Metroplex as a TRU exclusive).
