    Is it as yet unseen in the UK Euro stock? And thus probably on the way to other shops shortly. Photo will soon sort it out.

    Just left FP Shaftsbury, Moonracer has been joined by a peg of black wings and Rippersnappers.

    No Dinobots take withba pinch of salt but apparently due to number of pre-orders all the Sludges and Snarls have gone to fulfilling the mail orders.so no Dino's expected in store until June.

    No photos sorry

    Myself left with Moonracer, Overlord and a Beachcomber no photos though sorry.

    Please. The age rating on the front panel is a dead giveaway but the bar code will tell us stuff

    I haven't seen this in the flesh, but it's on the Toy Plant Derby's Instagram page. They update once stock is on the shelves, so it should be there.
    Can anyone tell if this is UK stock? IMG-20180518-WA0001.jpg

    It is! The clue is in the Age Rating, which has no text!

    You can see here the difference in the boxes between the imported w2 and the Hasbro UK w1 - look near the age ratings!

    Studio W2 (Jazz, Lockdown) are UK stock, w1 are the imports!

    If you're still on site, get me a photo of the Rippersnapper, or any other POTP w2 deluxe, there please!

    Popped to London Forbidden Planet at 7pm this evening. The only w2 PotP deluxe they had left was Rippersnapper (loads of him). No Rodimus Unicronus either.

    To be honest I have no idea; I tend to ignore the movie stuff (slightly out of indifference, mostly due to not having a clue what I'm looking at).
