Kingdom 4-pack is already listed at a couple of Australian retailers - HobbyCo and Myer (not on their public website yet). HobbyCo will have it for au$153 and Myer will have it for au$160.
F0994 TRA TARGET GEN WFC KINGDOM 4 PACK
Neither retailer has any details or info about the contents at this time. Maybe it will be revealed at the fan-fest on the 9th. (the product name actually has "Target" in it, so is likely to be a Target exclusive in America)
It isn't supposed to come out until September, so it is a bit early for it to be listed on an Australia retailer's system.
We've had a multi pack rumour before. I was hoping it would be Core jet repaints. Seems not. In days gone by £90 would have got you a CW boxed set. Maybe this isn't four deluxes but a mixture of size classes.
Given the way prices are rising it could well be four Core!
From straight repaints I'd rather see the ER jet mould get the kind of hammering the Siege one did. It seems generally the Siege moulds have been used over and over (Sideswipe, cough) whereas the ER equivalents haven't had as much use. I'd love a jet three pack of Sun & Acid storm plus the generic purple background filler from MTMTE.
The exchange rates are all over the place at the moment. Hard to make comparisons. We had another instance like this recently where the pound and dollar prices didn't match up. I can't remember what that was now but it was only a few weeks ago.
I wonder if it'll get forgotten. Thing is, as soon as you pump out the cash for one you can guarantee it'll turn up. I don't think pulse is an option for that, they're more about shifting new stock, but I'm clinging to that Facebook post that suggested Kapow and ID we trying to persuade Hasbro to do a run for the UK. That was ages ago now though.
Although that depends on whether they can be arsed actually carrying exclusives in the UK, which so far doesn't appear to be guaranteed.
As to the four pack, given that the Netflix Spoiler Pack with Megatron and !Chris Deluxe in it is retailing here for £60, we'll be lucky if that pack has as many as four deluxes in it - I'm guessing it'll be four Core class characters. Yes, at that price. Because it's an exclusives set.
I'm also guessing that we won't find out about it on Friday because it's too far down the pipeline, and all we'll find out about is stuff that we've already seen.
