So it's not just me... seriously, if you start stocking a new item, it really helps the sales of the new item to have it in bloody stock....

What really bugs me about argos is that the stock several items under one SKU, so how the hell do I know which one they have in stock, have to go ask someone everytime.

The new argos extra had no titaniums. I saw in the catalogue they have classics jetfire listed but its the same sku as the old cybertron figures.

Hi all! :D

It's the same with my two local Aberdeen Argos stores. They only seem to have Cybertron toys in stock. No sign of Ravage or the Titaniums either. (Actually the Peterhead store lists Titaniums in stock but it's not handy for me with work and all.)
Toysrus aren't much better. I'd swear they haven't had any new stocks of tf's since well before christmas.
As for Woolworths, I had a look there today and they only had one single tf (a yellow Scrapmetal) in stock!
Nothing new in Toymaster.
Nothing new in Tesco.
Nothing new in Asda.
Forbidden Planet have Titanium Rodimus and Soundwave but they're priced at £17.99 each! A huge difference from £11.24 at Argos.
Actually it does annoy me with Argos that you can't always get the toy in the picture but they do say that the product may vary so I guess that's their get out clause. However it annoys me even more that it's a brand new catalogue and some things haven't ever been in stock in some stores! (I've been checking online every day since before the new catalogue came out).
If this is a mini drought I figure things can only get better from now on in especially with the upcoming movie.

There's nothing new at any o0f my local argos stores either.
I asked them when they will actually get any of the new stock in for the new catalogue and they told me that nothing was showing up on their delivery screens. The girl told me that meant they would definitely, not be getting anything in either this week, or next week. :-x

Hi HC,

Seeing as I can't PM you this will have to do. I'm afriad that I cannot get any more Kiss Hot Rodimus. Would you like me to return your money?

Sorry about that. :-(

Yeah, please just send the money back.

If you could also send me the skin and/or internal organs of the dipshit delivery driver who stole my parcel, that's be great...
Fecking parcel force... :-x

OK, Will sort that out for you and it will be posted no later than Monday.

I think the driver will in for a grilling as he broke the contract by claiming to leave it without a signature.

Argos in Newcastle had a basket of about 10 titanium Soundwave and 1 Rodimus. And when I asked to view the classics deluxe (I asked to see 2) they brought out Cyb Skywarp and Unicron. I felt like saying

"That's not even the right product you muppet!"

But I refrained and just said that's not what I was looking for. I hate it when that kind of stuff happens. Which is why I prefer proper shops over catalogue shops. Going to have a look in Woolies on Monday, see if they have bumbles or astro in.
