Independant Retailers Screwed Over FoC Going Exclusive

Weapon: tea cup."
Kapow have just had their FOC order cancelled so it seems it really will be an exclusive line - only the unknown shop will be carrying wave 1 and no British online shops will be able to stock them.

You mean yet again paying higher prices for something which could have been lower if Hasbro UK/Europe weren't penises.

Of course we can!

wasn't FOC first announced as Argos exclusive...then when someone contacted Hasbro they said the toys would be in all shops...sounds like a typical case of Hasbro UK going "whu? Trance...Foamers? Do we sell those?"
assembling a Neo-G1/TF:TM cast. Please PM if you have (or know of) the following at a reasonable price: Classics or Henkei Astrotrain, Ramjet, Sunstreaker, Sideswipe, Blurr, or 3rd Party Motobot Arcee, iGear Ratchet and Ironhide.
Also looking for Universe Repugnus and Overbite, Frostbite and Longhorn

Hasbro UK.....fecking over Star Wars Collectors since 1997 and now applying that same world class incompetence to my beloved TFs........Isn't Evolution supposed to take care of clueless arsewits like this and make them extinct? Then at least you know UPFRONT you are reduced to ordering everything you need from BBTS.

Well this completely sucks, sorry UK folk. D: Hopefully Hasbro gets their heads out of their asses, I can't even imagine why they'd do something like that.

Ya...true enough. I feel like a bit of a twat havin a laugh....but with that being said. Royal Air mail between Canada and the U.K is dirt cheap. If you need a fig then i'm more than willing too help out. The cost of shipping a deluxe too the U.K from Canada is the price of a song. I'll help ya.

That's a nice offer, thanks!
Might have to take you up on it.

Royal Mail is a pain in the butt within the UK, do I trust it enough to carry stuff across an ocean?

Do we know which is this exclusive retailer?
Should we wait until we do before hauling stuff from another continent?
