As always, the US is the place where most exclusive Transformers are available while it is a roll of the dice for any international availability.
Well today we have two international stories regarding exclusives using Transformers War for Cybertron Siege molds. EB Games in Canada has opened preorders for Generations Selects WFC-GS06 Smokescreen, which will be at that standard Canadian retail price of $29.99 (about $22 USD). You can preorder it now by clicking here.
As for the UK, we now know who will be distributing their Siege exclusives. Like with Canada and the US, their exclusives pertaining to the Siege line (and not the Generations Selects line), will be distributed exclusively through Amazon. You can preorder the Firestormer pack right now by clicking here. This set contains G2 Sideswipe and Slamdance. The pack goes for £64.99 (about $82 USD).

This is typical. The US is the country with the cheapest transformers. The way the UK works is they usually simply use the US price as a nominal value and change the Dollar sign to a Pound sign.

But even $64.99 USD would be a ripoff for 2 deluxes and a battlemaster.

You're forgetting about the "exclusive markup tariff", that non-standard box ain't going fold or print itself ;)

Except wasn't there some kind of leak or finding about the sets for the US being about $50? If that was true, why is the UK getting screwed so bad on price to begin with?

I don't think the prices have been announced other than "similar to the leader class price point", besides all territories that isn't the US or Japan get screwed on price and/or availability. Not that I think that's fair or right.

I would venture a guess that in the states we'll see a MRSP of $49.99 though.

Well €74 is definitely not similar to the price of a leader class. £65 is not similar to a leader class price

Two things to remember here:

1. it is a preorder Price on Amazon. From my experience using Amazon, it tends to happen that they show a higher price than what the product will be when finally in stock.

2. the MSRP leaked is higher than leader class (leader class was always the ball park in terms of it at least costing as much as a leader).

Here are the leaked MSRPs in foreign currency to compare with the leader price point:

Deluxe WFC: 169
Voyager WFC: 269
Leader WFC: 469

Greenlight WFC: 249
Firestomer WFC: 499
Skywarp WFC: 499

Owch, hopefully the set will drop in price like the potp nemesis style prime did.

I’ve seen prices where I live reach €90 for a leader, the worst I’ve seen was probably in Milan... TR leader class was more than a €100.

Hasbro Pulse is completely down as of this moment. Hopefully this means they are updating with new content - including Brunt. Pulse made this big deal out of saying they were timing their figures availability with retail availability. But I see no evidence of that. We've got Wave 3 Siege sightings in some retail outlets, but none on Pulse. And Pulse hasn't added any new figures to the roster for weeks - it's been stuck on 28 since mid-April.

The Hasbro Pulse apple doesn't seem like it's fallen far from the HasbroToyShop.com tree....

I disagree. The fact I can pre-order toys for retail price - especially when Amazon has cancelled my red alert and Jetfire pre-orders - is already a better deal Pulse has over the HTS incarnation.

I understand the frustration, but according to other online stores that wave is currently scheduled for July release.

Hasbro said their site would be synched with the retail release date, not when retail stores choose to put their items on the shelves. The wave 3 release date is in July.

Exactly.

Pulse has pre-orders, and every figure due out by Wave 3 of this year for both SS and Siege have been listed on Pulse.

Besides, there is a difference between first sighting and saturation/actual release date. We've seen all kinds of issues with the SS38 Prime and Galaxy Prime getting purchased in stores, as they were not supposed to be on shelves when they were found.

I think Pulse is more in line with other stores like BBTS and TFsource, and it is far better than HTS

We have some pretty big news regarding international Amazon sites. Firstly, Transformers Masterpiece MP-47 Hound is now available to order at Amazon Japan. At the moment, he is ¥ 13,590 which is around $125 USD. there is a $10 shipping charge as well and, as you can see below, a customs fee depending on your country. The example below is Canada, which adds almost an extra $20. Clicking the pic will get you to the listing.

For Amazon UK, we now have a listing for Siege Greenlight who is £ 33.99. Amazon UK will be getting all these Siege exclusives and seems to be the go to place for affordable Siege toys in the UK with the sought after Soundwave for only £23.99.

My lazy minions inform me that Weaponizer Brunt and Deluxe Refraktor are now available for purchase at "Hasbro Pulse". Unfortunately, the limit is 2 per person, so you can't order all three Refraktors at once! But hurry and get them, if you're having trouble finding them on the shelf!

Oh, and that Decepticon Micromaster team is there too - it's just harder to get excited about those....

Studio Series Long Haul is now in stock at Hasbro Pulse. I noticed that not many people post to this thread anymore. I imagine that is because Hasbro Pulse has preorders now, so nothing much pops up. I don't recall seeing Long Haul up for preorder on the sight, but I haven't really been following that closely. People may already know about it, but in case you missed it.

For those who just can't get enough of that Moonracer mold? Nightbird is now up for pre-order at Hasbro "Pulse"!

https://hasbropulse.com/products/transf ... -nightbird

She may not be able to combine, but she can disguise herself as Moonracer, or Novastar, or Greenlight, or Lancer, or Chromia! Who can tell?

Grab this one before it disappears like a puff of ninja smoke!
