    Anyone seen the non-protoform deluxes anywhere? They're not even listed on the TRU website yet.

    Not a sausage, they must be coming soon though, right.
    We've had just about everything else so far.

    I remember thinking the same about Red Alert , Override, Crosswise, Thunderblast, and Brimstone last year.

    Oh I imagine a few won;t show up here but having no deluxes whatsoever for a big summer movie toy line seems hard to swallow.

    I posted one I saw on Ebay yesterday in the sightings thread that was in EU packaging. They're coming. Hasbro would be utterly stupid not to release the Movie cast at the very least over here. Non Movie guys I can see getting dropped, but the core cast ought to make it.

    Assuming those Euro packaged deluxes originated from Hasbro U.K. that is. We'll get something, it's just a question of what and when.

    Good point. Well, I'm optimistic we'll at least get the first wave.

    remember everyone this is hasbro Uk we are talking about here. They probably think the protoforms are the proper mainline deluxes!

    Ebay:
    look, the stores wont put them out or order them until most of their stock (protoforms) sell-out which is going to take a while because there are only 2Protos and my store has about 30 of each so that means 30-60 people need to buy the protos and where i live thats just not going to happen

    Dont hold your breath guys, if it happens, it happens, but dont get too optimistic, it may just be that we get case after case of Protoforms, Ratchet and Blackout till August-october.

    Those 'Buy It Now' buttons sure are looking friendly right about now.

    hmmm I might just stick to buying legends. they might not be so accurate but they're small, cheap and probably more easily avaiable!

    Just to let you all know, I ordered Bonecrusher off amazon.co.uk just over a week ago and he came today, the seller was midcotoys.com, it wasnt a marketplace seller so I think amazon were just selling via them, its a place in staffordshire so I presumed it was the UK toy, but the packaging has the big cgi head on the front so I guess they are importing the deluxes for now.

    Anyway, there a little bit more expensive with the p&p on top but you CAN get them, they had quite a few if not all of them when I looked. I think I paid £16 in total, so £12.99 I think, a little pricey, but my god, BC is a fantastically awesome figure, one of the best ive seen and worth every penny.

    I've noticed that Toys R Us seem to be constantly adding new items to the website. Various bags have now turned up, as has a page for the Scalextric set. It's out of stock at the moment though.

    I bumpa da thread to note that Play.Com have Jazz, Scorponok, Bumblebee, Brawl, Barricade and Wreckage up for pre-order, standard UK price of £9.99, to be released on the 30th of this month. Eyes open for sightings in toy shops, then!

    (There're other entries for Jazz and Barricade, too, at £14.99 each, for the 25th of June, but they appear to just be mistaken, duplicated entries for the deluxe toys...)
