Probably already are if you've got a Smyths in range, they're not on the website so you'll have to chance it and check instore

Funny thing, I never used to be that interested in Deluxe class figures, Voyager was where my interest started but the Deluxes have come along a long way in a couple of years and their complexity is increasing. WFC Prime is a good example of some clever thinking.

That is very possibly the fault of Hasbro themselves, I'll quote Miscreant of the 2005 boards who spotted something interesting...

My BB Bumblebee (Euro packaging) Has 5 010994 503154 on the bar code.
My Axor even though it's from a different wave (BBBB was bought long before Wave 4 was released)
has the exact same number on the bar code.
In fact, Even Tracks and Jazz both have that same bar code number. Even though it's a different subline.
Compare this to (US) packaged Tomahawk and Terradive
Tomahawk 6 53569 51638
Terradive 6 5369 51369
Looking at an Oil Pan, Brimstone, and Hubcap i bought in Tesco a while back, they all have the same bar code number as each other too.
It's not necessarily impossible for them to distinguish them, but when every product has the same bar code, it's a fair bit harder.
EDIT: Is this uniform barcoding why Hasbro UK can never tell us what exactly is coming?
Having checked mine, I can confirm this too. In fact, all of my EU Wave 1 Generations figs have the same barcode, but my US sourced Wave 2 & 3 all have individual ones...
