Sick of toy-hunting and prefer a sure bet? ToysRUs has posted their preorder page for Combiner Wars Devastator! The massive Titan class figure will ship on July 29th, and the price is $149.99 USD. The page notes that it may

By way of Transformers @The Moon, the closed Facebook group "Transformers Collectors Europe" has obtained confirmation that Wave 2 of Combiner Wars will not be released in Europe due to a lack of demand. This is not supposed to affect Wave 3, however, so the Protectobots' European fans are safe. Those who want the other 4/5ths of Menasor or would like the Aerialbots to not have Dragstrip on the team on a permanent basis, will need to do some importing.
