Our thanks once again go out to Pete Brown for sending us a further update on the Toys R Us Transfomers situation. In case you have not been keeping up with the recent turn of events, on the 3rd May we reported that TRU UK have had Transformers Generations Voyager Class figures listed within their computer system since Feb though the toys had not hit the shelves. We followed that up on Saturday 4th May with the next piece of news via Pete which confirmed that Generations Metroplex will be released within the UK as a Toys R Us exclusive later in the year. Well as promised Pete has sent us further word on the current situation.
Having spoken once again to the manager at his local Toys R Us Pete was informed that the Toys R Us UK Head Office has actually been in touch with Hasbro UK to find out what has happened to these TRU exclusive figures. The word is that there has been a hold up at Hasbro UKs end which is why the figures have not shipped to UK retail but no specific explanation has been given. The good news is that the Voyager Class figures are now due to hit the TRUs in mid-July with the rest of the deluxes and Metroplex being released shortly after. No specific street date is available for those figures so shortly after could, potentially, be anything from 1 to 4 months.
Stay with us as we will bring you the very latest updates as we get them on this story
