    Odds are there's something amiss. If a Civic mold was due in March we would've heard something about it before now.

    I've expected we'd see one of these for a while.... but March seems too early.

    If the toy exists that is.

    Just to clear this up, It will be Prowl and not a Civic. Seems someone got the Acura confused ( dont ask how )

    Just thought we would let everyone know.

    I guess it would be kinda pointless at this stage to ask if anyone has the catalogue order numbers already, since we only have to wait till tomorrow till the catalogue itself is out proper.. :(

    UPDATE:
    It would appear that the wave system either does not exist over here, or Hasbro UK screwed up. As i managed to pick up Crumplezone, and Snarl (yes, wave 3 snarl), at Argos this morning.
    Also, the cybertron figures are in new packaging, with much bigger deluxe packaging, and photos of the toys robot mode on box.
    Crumplezones box features a photo of a possible variation of him, with black replacing dark green and light green being replaced by dark green.

    Photos of the toys themselves instead of box artwork is a standard characteristic of European packaging.

    If they maintained the case contents from the North American release of wave three, then that's one each of the eight deluxes that had been released at that point.


    http://www.entertainmentearth.com/prodinfo.asp?number=HT80286C2

    However the prospect of Hasbro UK releasing eight new deluxes at once, along with (what would appear to be) only three new scout class toys seems not to make a lot of sense. :huh

    There're also (unsubstantiated) stories of Sideways being spotted.


    Maybe they *did* skip a few...... i doubt many would miss Dirtboss.

    It'll be just like Energon, they'll have 3 from wave 1 then another 3 from waves 2 and 3, then they'll come along with the bigger ones and stick the same toy into one shipment where they would have 2 of each in the US.

    the last Energon toys I got was the limbs for Superion, and then the line died, all is left now is the odd shockblast and cliffjumper.

    Tbh I'd like to see more consistantcy with the Alt's. We went from Smokescreen to Bluestreak, then to swindle, THEN to Windcharger and then Shockblast.

    Whoever does the shipments should be tarred and set on fire.

    This ends my rant. :D

    There was a shed load of Cybertron sideways and snarl in Tesco in northampton. Argos showed as having at least one of everything on there computes but I didn't check what they actually were.
