Animated Wave 4.5 NOT Cancelled, Just Delayed

Written by Big Bot on October 7, 2008 | Animated,Hasbro,News,Toys | Tags: , ,

After all the worrying and Hasbro UK hate resurfacing it seems we UK fans need to take a step back (again). it seems hasbro UK haven’t been very clear with their output. Wave 4.5 of Transformers: Animated, consisting of 2x Swoop, 2x Sentinal Prime, 1x Jazz, 2x Elite Guard Bumblebee, 1x Prowl, has NOT been cancelled but will probably turn up nearer to Christmas. The reasoning behind this is likely that due to wave 4 already containing Swoop and Sentinal Prime and jazz and Prowl alreading being out, there is a need to try and avoiding flooding the stores with the same figures.

Wave 4 (Wave 4 (834621483) – 4x Swoop, 4x Sentinal Prime) should be hitting the UK later this month.

Transformers: Animated on the Verge of Cancellation in the UK?

Written by Big Bot on October 6, 2008 | Animated,News,Toys | Tags: , , ,

An interesting but worrying rumour here. According to one of the guys at Kapow-Toys.com, Hasbro UK could be cancelling the TOYLINE in the UK. Sellers have been told that pre-orders should not be taken for wave 4.5 or beyond as the line may be discontinued before then.

This is surprising news given the fact that Animated toys seem to be flying off the shelves for fans looking for the latest figures, but given that the toys (and cartoon) get little exposure, it could turn out to be true.

Less than a week after North America, the UK now has Transformers on Blu-ray. The 2 disc set is exactly the same, with BD-LIve features and all the material from the DVD and HD DVD releases.

There is no word on if a store (maybe Asda) are stocking the ROTF videos like Wal*Mart did.
