    Might be mistaken but those toys might be news worthy, don't think we have seen them before, like worldwide.

    Certainly the bee and op are new formats but the drift is the old flickknife type despite the new drift detailing.

    image.jpeg Got TR Mindwipe, Rumble, Ravage and Laserbeak to join my TF ranks today. I couldn't wait until Sunday to open!....

    Not all that impressed but had some gaps to fill.

    Why do my pictures load upside down??...

    Thinking ahead - if Father Christmas doesn't sort me out (!) -my wants list for early 2017:
    Sixshot
    Kickback
    Gnaw
    Skullcruncher
    CW Skywarp - if I can find cheap. What's the cheapest people have seen him for ? ...29.99 at Smyths for me. I won't bite if priced any higher than 19.99! But worried I may miss out.

    £9.99, just spotted overload in B&M, plus optimus in the entertainer and Megatron in smyths, plus the range still has an abundance of roadbusters and minicon packs

    A friend bought a Gnaw from A1 Comics in Glasgow today.

    It came on a Euro card - on the left with US cards on Middle & Right

    While not conclusive proof of a UK release, given the store involved have a track record for importing, it's very encouraging news!

    I was wondering if they had anything else in the Range (like the one in Ipswich say) as I'm missing a few Wave one Minicons and they seem kinda hard to locate - also how much where they please ?

    Hopefully 2017 will be a better year for Hasbro To distribution than 2016 - I can't recall a worse year since that time there was most of a year with nothing when Transformers Prime : First Editions failed to be properly released in the UK.

    2016 hasn't been too bad, virtually everything HAS come out here in both RiD and Generations. Now 2013 and 2014, there were bad years! We got every Generations deluxe wave, a first.

    Ok yes the coverage hasn't been so good with not all stores getting all waves and sizes, but that's been a problem since 2001 and the effectively Woolworths exclusive RiD wave. Having a Smyths nearby helps.

    I think they were around £3.40, but don't quote me on that- I don't collect Rid so all the minicons look alike to me and I barely pay them any interest!

    There's been a temporary toy stall in the shopping centre here trying to flog one of those for £25 the last two Christmases. And it's not even the version with the additional Ironhide model.

    Yeah, I think all three are new. The question is do we really need more One-Steps of these characters? That'll be two for Optimus and Drift and three for Bumblebee. How about some of the Decepticons from the first series of RID that haven't yet had ANY figures of them instead of more renditions of the main Autobots? I'd even get excited over a One-Step Jazz or Windblade.

    You are not missing much - though if you feel the need to buy just one - get Tricerashot he's adorable.

    Same applies to Germany! I actually started a thread on thips topic just a month ago.

    Distribution on a national level is very hit and miss, but just as far as Hasbro's end of the deal is concerned, we truly got pretty much everything one way or another, "tail end of the line/discontinued assortment" syndrome and "better late than never" arrivals nonwithstanding. And just to remind everyone that we have two concurrently running Transformers lines ever since late 2014!
