Alternators UK release timetable

Post by Nevermore » Wed Dec 15, 2004 5:04 pm

Windcharger in February, Hound & Swindle in March.

Does this mean the Meister we saw in European packaging as well is meant for a release in continental Europe (i.e. Belgium or Netherlands)?

Just for completness' sake, Hound is already out in Belgium.

Oh, and on a sidenote... this means Windcharger will be out in the UK even before Overdrive is reelased in Japan...
Looking for a complete Energon Sky Shadow (from Superion Maximus).
Offering: Binaltech Hound, Swindle, Ravage (Corvette), Skids.
Can buy in stores: Robot Heroes Tigatron/Inferno, Ricochet/Predaking.

Great news for our Alternator starved UK members!
Indeed. :D I couldn't have put it better myself.

Thanks for posting the news, Nev.

I dont know if this has been mentioned but Forbidden Planet seems to have a healthy line in the BT series the Rally version of Silverstreak (i think) and i think ive seen a yellow Tracks at the one in Manchester!

Argos and TRU, far as I'm aware.

Wow... TRU restock their TF lines about once every two years [if so inclined, I could probably still nip down to So'ton and get a Ruination] and Argos just doesn't work if they're carrying anything as an assortment. I doubt Woolies will carry the things either.

Christ, I'm getting like an American.... "Yeh I know those figures I want are out in this country, but stoopid gay Hasblow aren't selling them at the end of my drive"

Yeah, TRU had about five lines' worth of Optimus Prime toys last time I looked... but they do get new product in...

I can't see why they're releasing Hound and Swindle, but then I couldn't see the reasoning for Smokescreen and Silverstreak—licensing varies worldwide, perhaps?
