Went into reading today with AP, picked up 3 Cybertron Scout repaints under what looked like Universe packaging (Backstop, Wreckloose and Undermine)
TRU only had Prime wave one, but I also got a Kreo set, as the new wave was there in its entirity :) still no generations, OR PRIME WAVE TWO! -.-

I believe that's Generations packaging of a Cybertron figure.
Which came out during ROTF. Just to confuse everything and everyone.

TRU seem to be reluctant to order any more Prime stock, as they haven't sold well with the first wave. No surprise there, really.

Yeah, Nova pretty much summed it up, but I got Wreckloose, (good old lizard with antlers), and the4-pack of cyberverse that I can't remeber what it's called. Uni. Bee, ROTF scanning bee, ROTF scanning screamer, and Cyb. screamer, with two random guns as bonus. Pretty sweet in all honesty! :D
But yeah, nothing new ): D:

Has anyone actually seen any Transformers in the U.K. recently?

I ask as this thread seems to be getting a little off topic with people focussing on recent online store purchases. If these stores dont have a high street retail outlet then should these so called 'sightings' should be moved to the Toy Haul threads?

Back on topic : I havent seen any Transformers in the U.K. recently :lol:
Tried Argos again for the TFPrime Voyagers and Deluxe figures but my local stores still have the previous catalogues releases :-(

it's pretty rare this thread is on topic, tbh. it's generally a place where we can chat and stuff, and if there happens to be a Transformers sighting, it might get a mention.

Also, even though it is on a dreaded online store: Kapow have the Fort Max Kabaya kit on pre-order for £35.
assembling a Neo-G1/TF:TM cast. Please PM if you have (or know of) the following at a reasonable price: Classics or Henkei Astrotrain, Sunstreaker, Sideswipe, Blurr, or 3rd Party iGear Ratchet and Ironhide.
Also looking for Universe Repugnus and Overbite, Frostbite and Longhorn and any Webdiver toys.

was through to Edinburgh yesterday, so went into Forbidden Planet and they had European carded versions of Hotshot, Knock Out and Vehicon. Nabbed me a Vehicon, but not opened him yet. Also had Cyberverse Magnus and Depth-charge-plane (drawing a blank on his name right now. "Not Skyquake")
There were also Kreo sets and some ridiculously still full-priced PCC 5packs.

Sup guys and gals. I accidentally found myself at the opening of a smyths toy store in Hull today. They have plenty of Prime deluxes wave two and the Bot Shots battle for the matrix pack. Plus the usual Prime cyberverse and voyagers.

Hope this helps any hunters in the area.

I'll be in Manchester at the weekend, hoping to find something in ASDA at least!

(I'll also pop into Toymaster and Forbidden Planet, if I get the chance..)

weren't the Deluxes £9.95 or something? I'm assuming they've put the price up, otherwise I'm not seeing the upside of that deal.

FINALLY! Managed to find a Ratchet! no arcee though...
Got the good ol' doc from a Tesco Home for the usual £13, but he is worth it :D So it has taken 6 months for wave 2 to reach Berkshire, and even then it is only two Ratchets on the back of a Tesco's shelf.
I think i'm going to have a word with Hasbro about their distribution...

The TV and Movie Store in Norwich has Human Alliance Basics for £9.99.
Wasn't Home Bargains cheaper than that?

Still no United Kingdom Transformers sightings then...?

What is going on with Hasbro UK and their distribution of TF Prime figures?

We brits are keen to stay up to date with the latest releases only to hear the same figures are going 'On Sale' over the water at various stores already, thats before the U.K. has even seen the complete Wave 2, let alone Wave 3 or later?
