I've given up.


And I did report sightings of HA basics! I know it's not new stuff, but I am trying... :(

I havent seen anything worth shouting about for what seems like months now. Every time I go anywhere its the same old same old.

I'm just looking forward to the day that the Masterpiece Prime hits TRU......if it is still due that is.

I'd post more here, but haven't had any actual sightings, and apparently we're met with scorn if we just try to converse with fellow UK fans now.

You just wrote a message not talking about a sighting.

HOW DARE YOU?!

(I'm in Italy, so far, there is nothing except some Cyberverse Legion DOTM figures.)

Hey guys, haven't posted here in an absolute age. I realise I haven't bought a Transformer in this country since Generations Windcharger, mind you, I've only bought Junkheap since then.

Anyone seen any sign of the new Generations figures?

They apparently showed up in Ireland, if it's the Fall of Cybertron ones you're talking about.

Haven't seen or heard anything about other Generations, or Prime (although TRU does have them all in stock, apart from Vehicon -- of course).

I do have heard of Gen/FOC stuff being in Toys R Us. Have yet to go check out my local one though. Too scared of The Hive.

Picked up commanders Magnus, Skyquake and Starscream in Tesco, £7 each. Left the Prime and Bulkhead repaints on the shelf. Deluxes were marked down to £8, but only wave 2 stock on the shelf.

yeah, I saw the new Cyberverse Commanders in Tesco as well. Deluxes and Voyagers are on sale, couple of quid off, but all Wave 1. TRU was the same, shelf after shelf of Wave 1 Prime. Weaponizers are dribbling out onto shelves like so much narcotic induced vomit from the corner of Hasbro's mouth. TRU had the Cyberverse Jackhammer as well, but no Driller. :(

Kreo stuff was on sale too at TRU, but not by enough for me to contemplate getting any. They had...I think the technical term is "crap ton" of it as well. None of the little blind packed Kreons anywhere that I could see.

Non-TF related, but TRU also has some GI Joe movie figures (from the first film...that they still haven't got rid of) down to £2.99 each as well. Was tempted to get a few, but ended up not bothering, after the disappointment of seeing the TF selection.

Got me a commander ultra magnus from Sainsbury's didcot on the weekend. Pretty neat little guy, actually.
Other than that they had BB andCliff deluxe, BB and Cliff legion, shadow/dark/stealth/whatever they like to call him now BB legion, and prime, ironhide, scream, and repaint prime commanders.

Got a Voyager Prime Starscream from Toys R Us in Croydon, but no Bulkhead to speak of. They had all of the wave 3 deluxes except Vehicon. Managed to snag a couple of Vehicons from the website on Sunday, but they go very quickly. Overall though it seems Toys R Us have by one way or the other most of the current stuff starting to filter through. Have a horrible feeling that this is probably the last wave we'll see though...

I was just about to post that. :D

Toys R Us (spending way too much time there) had all the generations deluxes, and pretty much everything else that is currently on release. Managed to grab my Prime Bulkhead finally.

Smyths has a 20% sale on at the minute, plus I found bot shots wave 4 and the second wave of three packs. Got the lot for little over £30 so more then chuffed today.

saw the 20% off sale on a tv advert. sadly, their website is terrible, and they only distinguish figures by size class, and even then the Legion Class entry has a pic of Deluxe Hot Shot.

Even Smyths catalogue has the same promo pics that Argos use. Stock from store to store varies wildly. 2 stores in Belfast, but they never seem the have similar stock as I usually have to visit both. Prime Rid deluxe and voyagers are all still wave 1. Botshots seem to be the only thing they keep upto date wave wise.

My local TRU has FOC wave 1 and Prime Wave 2 (including the Voyagers) in today. I got Shockwave. He's pretty good.

Went into Bracknell Tesco today they had prid deluxe wave 1 and 2, voyager wave 1 and weaponizer wave 1.
I got Arcee and I was considering weaponizer prime but decided against it.
I also spent this morning doing some heavy touch Ups to my prime ratchet (ill link a picture thread soon) and video reviews of him and arcee will be done shortly :)

I bear glad tidings. I was in the next town over today and popped into Toymaster. To my surprise I found PRiD wave 4 deluxes and wave 2 voyagers. Only came home with Kup and Dead End since I have rent and bills looming next week, but they are out there in the wild people.

Andy at Kapow is sold out of the individually carded versions at the moment, but has a preorder up for a gift set at £75 http://www.kapowtoys.co.uk/transformers ... -5616.html and preorders available for the Japanese versions for considerably more. There's been a problem with Hasbro UK cancelling retailer's orders for forthcoming FoC toys recently, so it looks like the line is going exclusively to TRU for UK retail. Month's back it was supposed to be Argos exclusive though, so make of that what you will.
