So now all we need is a customizing kit for Overkill that has a horn, his side cannons, and a different tail so he can stand upright in a more godzilla like fashion.

Juuust waiting for Dragstrip to go up and then it's him and Overkill. Man, I really hate that Prime mold. Megs is ok, I just wish he had a right hand instead of that whirly thing of death.

My question to Hasbro:
HasbroToyShop.com is listing some new Transformers Deluxe Class figures (Megatron, Optimus Prime and Overkill). Will these figures become available through your UK site, or will UK collectors have to get American friends to help them out? Thanks in advance.

Response:
WITHOUT PREJUDICE

Thank you for your recent e-mail to Hasbro UK Ltd.

Unfortunately, these particular items are not available in the UK, and we are currently unaware of plans to release them here.

May we apologise for not being able to help you on this occasion. May we thank you for contacting Hasbro and if we can be of any further assistance, either now or in the future, please do not hesitate to contact us again.

Kind Regards,

ASK HASBRO
Hasbro UK Ltd
Cock. :cry:

Well, Yankee brethren (and Aussies too, I understand), looks like you're going to be very popular with the Brits.

Whirly things of death can be very beneficial in daily life - You can use it to cut the grass; stir cake batter; and blow away dead leaves. :D

Prime really doesn't look all that different. Not enough for another purchase. They should've painted him as Motormaster, I mean, "Decepticon Motormaster".

$16 FOR REPAINTED DELUXES?!?!?!? HAVE HASBRO LOST THIER FLIPPING MINDS?!?!?!? Still, I like Prime's new paint job better than the old one, and the packaging is nice.

Well I guess I shouldn't have jumped the gun and ordered yesterday. Does anyone know if Hasbro will adjust preorders? No big deal I guess, but worth a shot.

Does HTS ship to Canada or is it US Exclusive?

I'm really like that Overkill, and I fear aftermarket markup will be worse than paying for excess shipping through HTS.

I pre-ordered mine, if it does end up a very small run I really don't want to pay the aftermarket value on this one. Will look great next to Wildrider when she shows up from Japan.

Here's to hoping we can see the rest of the car Stunticons as repaints, there are suitable molds now out for Universe, and a new Motormaster, I just can't see a Prime repaint taking his place very well.
