Hasbro Hellas says Deluxe Mudflap is not being shipped to Europe together with a bunch of other cutbacks.*Grumble*.

Deluxe Jolt is allegedly here with the first wave but unsighted so far.

Power core Combiners: Bombshock.

HftD/Generations: Battleblade Bumblebee, Deluxe Ironhide, Seaspray, Overload.

All Greek deliveries have been prelimenary shipments and more stock will be circulated throughout the nation by late September.

Hasbro Hellas' claims that Mudflap will not be shipped to Europe were false. I bought Mudflap in Athens and it's on display two metres away from me right now.

Chinese rip-off Superion, Bruticus restocked in Jumbo across the nation.

Really BAD halfassed Armada rip offs of Optimus and Excelsior available too.

Hasbro Hellas always closes during Δεκαπενταύγουστο, and needs until late September to drink enough coffee to wake up and get back to work after that.It's still just a BIT early for Straxus, but either call Jumbo head office or Hasbro Hellas and ask them what's happening with it.

The really HOT property such as TF1 Jazz, Animated Swoop, Classics Mirage, Classics Inferno and so on never come to Greece. If they do, it's after a repaint or slight remould, such as TF1 Battle Damage Jazz.

I avoid Hasbro Hellas because they told me 5 times that Mudflap wasn't being sent here and it got sent anyway.If I call them I will slander them.I deal with Public now, who invited me to give them a list of what I want so they can Email it to all their shops.

These are the ones that I assume won't make it to Greece from amongst the present/near future releases:
Drift.
HftD Grapple.
HftD Jazz.(Virtually a guarantee).
HftD Red Alert.
Jolt. (Electro Jolt might make it here).
MAYBE Straxus.
MAYBE Tracks.
RotF Brawn.

We never get the last wave of a movie line.So far this is a Guarantee.

Straxus is a possibility, but what's released here gets here late.Orestiada got the wave 1 25th anniversary classics 1 year late.

Oh, and what the shops order is NEVER what Hasbro sends, and they never say when they're sending it, not just with Transformers but with all the Hasbro stuff. I know this for sure because I have jumped behind the counter in shops both in Epirus and Macedonia and placed the orders myself.They keep sending gravity bots and that other shit with the robot form moulded onto the underneath of the matchbox car which they can't sell but are still stupid enough to make.Then they point at our economy and decide the TF market here is weak.

Check Takara for Straxus.Otherwise, don't worry about it. There'll be plenty more versions in the future.

Old news now, I didn't bother posting, but with the number of views I figured I should:

Now at Jumbo:
*Windcharger.
*Chopsaw.
*Jolt.
*A bronze Autobot Helicopter.
*Leader class Deep desert Brawl is on sale at Jumbo.Extremely cheap: 39 Euro. I bought one. It's not that great, but it's nice(Actually it's bullshit compared to other Leader toys,who am I kidding?!?).

At Carrefour/Μαρινόπουλος since Xmas: Rescue Ratchet,Tuner Skids,Axor,Insecticon,some nice Starwars vehicles with troopers.

At Public since Xmas: Tuner Skids, Sidearm Sideswipe,Hailstorm,Insecticon,Leader class Starscream & some nifty looking Starwars Transformers hybrids which I don't recall the names of- sorry Πατριότες!!!!!

The Website 'Scrooge' (Σκρουτζ) has listings for Drift and a Eurofighter available in Greece but I don't see them in any stores as yet.The Drift listing is 15.50 Euro.The other is (I think) 14.95 Euro.

Oh, War for Cybertron is obviously available, but search the net for specials in Θεσσαλονίκη.(That's Thessaloniki to our English speaking friends).Mrs Smoketreader found a listing for 26 Euro (PC only) but I told her no and didn't think to note the website name.

I won't post again for a little while 'cuz I'm busy with work don't get time to Bothunt: You guys post here too, Γαμώτο!!!!!!!!!

I really wish I could contribute to the Greece sightings thread, but, since I prefer online stores for my collecting needs, I don't know what's going on in the local toy stores. I'm sorry... :-(
BTW I am 99% sure that we are the only Greek Seibertronians, so, there isn't much help available...

Γιά σου βρε αδελφέ!
Actually, online shopping is propably less of a headache.I'll get there one day.
I'll still update occasionally because I'm sure more browsers from Greece or the local national neighborhood will just breeze through once in a blue moon,even tho I agree we must be the only two Seibertronians.I'll stop this thread when the movies are done,maybe.
I know there are at least four psychotic level collectors in my area,not including me. At least one buys SHELFLOADS of G2 stuff and resells it on the net.Naughty.
