Not necessarily.
Meister is also shown on UK Swindle's box (because those are uniform Euro boxes).

Meister came out in Italy last December.

So that doesn't have to mean anything. Didn't the Euro box for Smokescreen depict Side Swipe, who never came out in Europe at all?

Alt Decepticharge MIB on Ebay
http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...tem=5970583142

The seller has said that the figure is on hand and is not a prototype. Like most. The country of origion shows that the seller is from Hong Kong.

Could still be a packaged "dealer sample". I'm gonna wait either for Remy to confirm me that he's officially out in Hong Kong, or for someone like Action-HQ officially listing him as "in stock".

Whats a Dealer Sample ?
Is it an actual finished version or still a flawed prototype ?

Somewhere in between. Imagine it as the last stage before the final retail version. Can even be identical to the retail version in many cases.

A prime example would be Alternators Windcharger. Dealer sample had him with top up, retail version had him with top down, and top stored separately in the packaging. Also, dealer sample and retail version had the "10" in different corners of the box.

Thanks for that

How would I actually know if it's a dealer sample. Mine will be arriving in a weeks time.

Arrived today and is certainly no a dealer incentive version.



Decepticharge is now also available on Ebay from the Hong Kong seller Crosszgundam

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...tem=5973598950

Delivery to the UK will take 2 weeks or less.

No doubt there will be more by other sellers soon.
