    Could still happen, Omega, Jetfire and Rainmakers are still only just showing up again after siege, so still a chance.

    There was no promised UK release of Thrust or the 4-pack

    I don't much care if they source them from America or Hong Kong so long as they are available again.
    In Demand said they were looking into The Buzzworthy pack - but didn't say who they were looking to source them from.
    Runabout was due a restock in October - it seems to have vanished though.

    No Promises but there was a fairly solid rumour/s that one or two established UK retailers were going to be getting the 4-pack in.

    The one I heard a fairly strong rumour from has said that they're stepping back on Transformers, as they're no longer part of their future focus.

    Their planned future is in movie toys , heritage lines (Lego and Barbie were mentioned) and pocket money toys apparently. Personally IMO a lot of the £7 or less stuff should be scrapped or banned.

    Galvatron is still stating pulse premium, so I've ordered from In Demand as it's live on there

    Alicon is still scheduled for November, Runabout has never been scheduled for restock as it wasn't getting a rerelease anywhere. UK releases have never been planned for Thrust or the 4 pack, though I think the studio series Thrust caused confusion as it was originally announced as Kingdom Thrust.


    Who was that? I know a few retailers who are considering dropping Hasbro altogether and there have been moves afoot this week regarding other products. After the stunt Hasbro pulled with their sale I think UK stockists will start to dry up a bit.

    I barely see any Transformers in local supermarkets anymore. If they stock Hasbro anything it's Marvel and a tiny bit of Star Wars, like Mission Fleet.

    Made sure to grab 1 Ravage before I went to sleep. Should probably check on Galvatron.
