    I'm really keen on Overload and Blitzwing.

    I know that no leader class figures have been sighted at retail here in two years so I know that Overload will have to be an online purchase.
    I'm really just here for the free food and open bar.

    I could have said the same for Voyagers and then Ironhide/Optimus showed up. It has been smooth sailing since then.
    The recent arrival of Jetfire/Megatron has messed with my expectations for Leaders. I will still find Overload online to be sure though.

    I've been wondering where to get Overload from. OMP is my preferred retailer but don't know if/when they'll get him so looking for somewhere else.

    Amazon will definitely have Overload, as I've bought most of the recent Studio Series from there, as I don't trust Australia getting in every wave (especially the Leaders & Voyagers).

    Any idea when it might be available on Amazon?

    Transformation videos of the three Deluxe toys have been posted on youtube by Hasbro.

    Skipjack is out in America, and it has been noted that the manufacturing error with Rampage was fixed (I didn't realise this, but the waist/engine part is on the wrong way around), so that it looks right in both modes.

    It isn't too noticeable in robot mode, but in vehicle mode, the front (black) part of the radiator/engine is significantly different in sculpting, and needs the flat surface to look right.

    Oh, so it is maybe worth getting after all. It's currently ~$41 on Amazon so I might as well I guess.
