The Constructicons were released in the UK. Eventually, anyway. In, like, 1992 ish. I got my Bonecrusher in Woolies... it was either when the Classics were still on the shelves or when I got my G2 Silverbolt. Better late than never.
This is true! The original green combining constructicons limped into retail in about 1991 (I remember a branch of Boots in Portsmouth, where I was holidaying at the time, had them. i got Mixmaster, whom i promptly pulled the arm off) and then we got the non-combining New Constructicons in 1992 (the yellow ones).

The only TF figure that I've been really impressed with that we originally missed out on is Perceptor. he's an awesome toy
