It doesn't matter how it's available in the US.
Like most Transformers toys of the first 2 years, the Dashers came from Diaclone
, and while they were mailaways for US Transformers, other lines that imported toys from the same line around the same time had them out in stores: Diakron
in the Benelux and France, and Trasformer
in Italy had the same toys (strangely enough with the same names).
Point is, knockoff and bootleg companies are really resourceful when it comes to making their product: in 2008 they managed to release fakes of Transformers toys before they were out in stores
