Yes, it's very sporadic but considering we were told a few days ago that the release date is March we're lucky anything is showing up at all. Also, and as far as I know this has only happened once before, we got stuff before the USA :KREMZEEK:

I really want that Megatron but he's not in my area. Next Argos stock delivery is Feb 10th for us. And I have £80 of Argos vouchers sitting around...

Have a lttle copy/pasta from that other thread:

First, I got the Comic Con exclusive Prime 1st ed from HTS. (This one will stay sealed because I'm pretty sure deluxe OP will turn up eventually.)

Weeks later...

I saw TF Prime FE in my local TrU at Laval (Québec, Canada). They only had Starscream and Bumblebee. That was last November, or early December. Being a Starscream fan I just took him.

A while later, I took another Starscream to keep MOC, just in case. At 17$+tax, it's expensive, but I'm a Screamers fan.

After Xmas, the TF Prime toys were discounted to 5$! Of course, only The Bee was left. At that price, I snatched two. One I keep sealed, the other I open. (Bumblebee is not great by the way.)

Finally, the voyagers are here! Monday, I went to Tru, only to find just Optimus Prime. I wanted Bulkead too, but he was gone. I passed on Arcee and Cliffjumper because the voyager is 30$+tax and the deluxes are 17$+tax. Beside, there will be more later, right? Optimus Prime rock. Way better in person than in pictures.

Yesterday, I sad "screw it" and took Arcee at TrU. Great and sexy figure!

But then, shit got real on 4chan's /toy/ board. I saw thet the First Edition figures will be no more and the regular wave will be different, even inferior molds!
Bulkhead is being scalped at insane prices on Ebay...
Panic mode activated.

I franctically call all the TrU of Laval and Montreal. NO BULKHEAD ANYWHERE! Just in case, I call the TrU at the next town over. THEY HAVE HIM! Several in fact.

So today, after work, I asked a co-worker to give me a lift to that TrU. (I don't have a car). I used my credit card and most of my food money to get two Bulheads, two Cliffjumpers, one more Arcee and one more Optimus.

I'll play with one, and keep the other sealed. One hour and a half of multiple city bus rides later, in a slushstorm, I'm finally home with my haul.

Yes, I'm an idiot who will have to live on bread and water for a few days, but I'm a happy idiot.

Here, have a picture.

Sometimes one must make sacrifices. I've had to pay double for Prime and Bulkhead and nearly double for Cliffjumper, although I'm not convinced that order is going to come through.

I'm going to have to wait for the zombie version, at least it's the same mold. I'm not paying £40 on ebay for a £13 figure.

Just got my FE Hasbro Bulkhead in the mail today. While he is positively awesome, I might be inclined to wonder if he was $72.00 worth of awesome if I wasn't just so glad to have him and thus end that particular ill fated hunt. Its done. Over. And his online prices are already exceeding what I paid.

I'm expecting my FE Prime and CJ to arrive probably tomorrow. Not going to bother with the FE Vehicon, but it would have been nice to have gotten that entertainment pack with Prime and Megs and kids. You would think that the EP would have been the ONE TFP item that Hasbro would have made sure was available everywhere, but what are ya going to do?

Right now, I'm unhauling my spares. I planned to hold on my MIB collection, but if I can just lower the credit card bill a little, I will be happy.

Click on my Ebay icon to see.

By the way, since I will never be able to get the pack with the kids, deluxe Megs and Prime, I openned my Comic Con 1st Ed. Prime box. The magnet is on the fridge, the box with Matrix is in storage, an Deluxe TF-Prime Optimus Prime stand proudly in my OP shelf.

I should get my BBTS order at work tomorrow (Starscream, Bumblebee, Arcee and Takara Cliffjumper) and my Tracking number for the FE voyager Prime I bought off ebay shows that I should get him tomorrow as well. It's going to be a good day for TFs.

Toys R Us and Target in the USA started stocking TF Prime figures very recently. Lucked upon a Cyberverse Cliffjumper, Arcee and Ratchet along with RiD Prime at my local Target. The shelves were nearly empty...still some Bumblebees there last night along with a single Bumblebee at Toys R Us. Not a fan of the B so I left him there.

Received TakaraTomy FE Bulkhead in the mail today.

Wow.

This is one of the best looking Transformers ever made. Really. We're talking Buster Prime territory. If you thought it looked good in pictures, it looks at least twice as good in person. The worst thing that can be said about this guy is that he will make nearly all of your other Transformers look a bit (or a lot) wanting by comparison.

And I happened upon a bunch of fresh Prime: RID stock at TRU. Picked up Deluxe Soundwave and Cliffjumper along with several Cyberverse Legion figures: Bumblebee, Arcee, Cliffjumper, Ratchet, and Vehicon. (I have a feeling those Vehicons are going to be in short supply for a while.)

They had Voyager Optimus and Megatron, too; but, I passed on those. $27 is just too steep for these guys. I'll wait for them to show up at Target or Walmart. Both of these figures are kind of a let-down, anyway. Megatron looks especially drab (and quite fiddly in reviews). It's too bad they didn't just scale the First Edition Deluxe figure up. Hopefully we'll get a Leader class Megatron.

Plastic crack got the best of me. My wallet opened despite having spent by budget (and then some) on Takara FE's. Picked up Wheeljack in Target this evening.

No luck finding Soundwave though :(

Got Soundwave, FE Starscream and 'Powerizer' Megatron so far. They're all great figures but Soundwave is easily my favourite.

As a bit of forewarning to others though, Soundwave is a fair bit shorter than Starscream (almost a full head shorter). I have no idea if Screamer is an especially large deluxe by today's standards, or if Soundwave is just smaller than average. It must be said though, Soundwave's size puts him in much better scale with Megatron.

Caved and bought Powerizer Prime, Deluxe Wheeljack, Cliffjumper and Bumblebee off of TRU.com. Should be getting it this Saturday. Though the prices were marked up a bit, I've had an itch to buy something and the stores around me only have DOTM stuff.

I think this is the line that will finally draw me away from my scale issues. Each piece looks nice, regardless of accuracy.

I also grabbed a few Bot Shots Monday for son. Not sure if that counts for Prime though.
