Hopefully not too above my station of me to start this off, but given the UK release today, the slew of items for order at RK *and* FE being theorectically available stateside; here goes!

My haul today :D

Nice. Different packaging from the first editions as well. I have only the Deluxe Prime and Megatron from the entertainment pack, and the only other one I want is Ratchet. Unless some really cool characters come down the line later.

Lucky! xD

I want them out in the US already gosh darn it. Lol. A little depressing the entertainment pack with OP, Megs and the kids isn't out here. I want it so bad because I know someone who worked on a few of the figures in it >__<


On my end, I have the NYCC & SDCC exclusives, and 1st edition Arcee and Starscream.

Are these the "powerizer" versions or regular? Can we expect to see the normal version come to the US?

I'm also eager to know if the First Edition figures are over with, or if we can expect to see them. I feel that the FE Voyager Prime is way awesomer and I would like to know if I need to get it via BBTS or elsewhere right now to secure one.

Any word on Bulkhead's voyager version and if they're gonna do something funky with that one, too?

Bearing in mind the piss-poor distribution to Britain and Europe, if the FEs ever show up it will take a long time.

Yeah, I just went for it and bought my FE OP and Starscream using vouchers I have accumulated over the past year.
I'd rather have Starscream and Soundwave vaguely in scale, and I prefer the images I have seen of FE Prime than the Poweriser one.

I too prefer the FE OP - the bot looks better and the weapons are screen accurate. I've ordered it from ebay at nearly double the retail cost.

My haul so far:
I got FE Starscream, Arcee and Bumblebee for Christmas.
Today I picked up Wheeljack and Soundwave from Argos. I had no idea Soundwave was coming out this early.

I got Prime from Agos today. Doesn't say anywhere on the packaging about Poweriser or anything, just Voyager. They had nothing else in stock, maybe someone else beat me to it.

I think "Revealers" and "Powerizers" are the marketing dept being a bit over-zealous, they still say Deluxes and Voyagers on the packaging!

None of my local Argoses have that voyager Megatron. They're stocking seems sporadic. I haven't come across any Bees yet!

Looks like it. Plus stupid light up gimmick that doesn't really work.

Just pulled the trigger on this one myself, especially after the news from the Hasbro camp.

Managed to find Megatron at Argos in Lisburn. No deluxe class, and stock showed one voyager which was the Megs I bagged. Using the stock finder on their website it appears Northern Ireland has very little stock, if any.

Yes, it's very sporadic but considering we were told a few days ago that the release date is March we're lucky anything is showing up at all. Also, and as far as I know this has only happened once before, we got stuff before the USA :KREMZEEK:

I really want that Megatron but he's not in my area. Next Argos stock delivery is Feb 10th for us. And I have £80 of Argos vouchers sitting around...

Have a lttle copy/pasta from that other thread:

First, I got the Comic Con exclusive Prime 1st ed from HTS. (This one will stay sealed because I'm pretty sure deluxe OP will turn up eventually.)

Weeks later...

I saw TF Prime FE in my local TrU at Laval (Québec, Canada). They only had Starscream and Bumblebee. That was last November, or early December. Being a Starscream fan I just took him.

A while later, I took another Starscream to keep MOC, just in case. At 17$+tax, it's expensive, but I'm a Screamers fan.

After Xmas, the TF Prime toys were discounted to 5$! Of course, only The Bee was left. At that price, I snatched two. One I keep sealed, the other I open. (Bumblebee is not great by the way.)

Finally, the voyagers are here! Monday, I went to Tru, only to find just Optimus Prime. I wanted Bulkead too, but he was gone. I passed on Arcee and Cliffjumper because the voyager is 30$+tax and the deluxes are 17$+tax. Beside, there will be more later, right? Optimus Prime rock. Way better in person than in pictures.

Yesterday, I sad "screw it" and took Arcee at TrU. Great and sexy figure!

But then, shit got real on 4chan's /toy/ board. I saw thet the First Edition figures will be no more and the regular wave will be different, even inferior molds!
Bulkhead is being scalped at insane prices on Ebay...
Panic mode activated.

I franctically call all the TrU of Laval and Montreal. NO BULKHEAD ANYWHERE! Just in case, I call the TrU at the next town over. THEY HAVE HIM! Several in fact.

So today, after work, I asked a co-worker to give me a lift to that TrU. (I don't have a car). I used my credit card and most of my food money to get two Bulheads, two Cliffjumpers, one more Arcee and one more Optimus.

I'll play with one, and keep the other sealed. One hour and a half of multiple city bus rides later, in a slushstorm, I'm finally home with my haul.

Yes, I'm an idiot who will have to live on bread and water for a few days, but I'm a happy idiot.

Here, have a picture.

Sometimes one must make sacrifices. I've had to pay double for Prime and Bulkhead and nearly double for Cliffjumper, although I'm not convinced that order is going to come through.
