ROTF Wave Delayed, Another Cancelled in UK?

If you’re in the United Kingdom, some potential bad news for Transformer collectors regarding the Revenge of the Fallen toy line. According to Kapow Toys, via TFW2005, wave 4 Deluxe toys (Ice Cream Truck Twins, Dead End, Jolt, and Blaze Master) may be delayed and Wave 5 Voyagers (Long Haul and Grindor) maybe cancelled. The reason for the delay is meet increased demand in the United States for toys and no reason given for the cancellation. I have seen Dead End, Jolt and Voyager Long Haul at retail here in the United States. There are reports that wave 4 has shown up at some UK retail stores so likely it just means finding a toy you are after will be a little harder and possibly the entire wave 5 Voyagers are going to be allocated to the US. Thanks to Scorpio for the link.

  1. Not surprised; we're still on the first two or three waves and Forbidden Planet, where the latest toys are supposed to be sold, have only just got wave 3/4 Voyagers.
