Haven't slept in a couple of days and I'm bleeding from my gums, but it's nowhere near as bad as it's been with the couple of bouts of infection earlier in the year. I've got a maxilofacial consult coming up and might need another surgery to remove the plate in my jaw that's failed. On the plus side I do have new pretties.

Apparently there's two just outside Belfast, plus the one in Bangor.

Are there no TRU around you? They have all three from FoC wave 1, although have yet to see or hear anything about wave 2.

Smyths Forestside had them up on the top shelf still in shipping boxes, not out on pegs. Best chance to snap up Shockwave if your after him.

Had a thought. I was working to the assumption that it was wave 4 stock I found the other day, but checking the US case assortments Kup isn't supposed to be available before wave 5. I can't say what was in the full case as all that was on the shelf was the Kup and Dead End that I picked up and the Bumblebee repaint. Does this mean that wave 4 has been skipped (since I haven't heard of anybody over here finding anything past wave 3 otherwise), or are we getting different case assortments from the States past wave 3? Thoughts please people.

Dead End is wave 4 along with Shadow Strike Bumblebee and Airachnid, so I don't think it's been skipped. Wave 5 is Kup and Rumble, and I think we have pretty mych the same case assortments as the US, it just takes longer for stuff to get here :)

Yeah, I get that. I'm just saying it's damned odd that I've found Kup before anybody has found Airachnid.

Managed to find Vehicon! In a shop! On a peg! A sight I though I'd never see.

Found him in Smyths Belfast Forestside. Had HotShot and KnockOut as well, and all reduced to £9.49.

Tesco had 2 Kups, Airachnid, Rumble, Hot Shot, Bin-man Bumblebee, Arcee and maybe one other on the shelves last night. Went back today after work, 1 of the Kups was gone, and I got the two blue cars.
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.

Now to find Grimlock...

I'd be up for some TFU game-age. Haven't signed up for the beta yet though. Probably should, but...confidence dropped with the fact that I registered for info waaaaayy back when, and there's a beta registration thing going and I didn't get an email about it? Also, the seriously low-class marketing. I want it to be good, but...well, not holding my breath.

As for faction, I say we put it to a vote.

Managed to pick up Airachnid and Rumble in Tesco (Belfast, Newtownbreda). Must have only got one case of this wave in so far as everything else was BBee etc. Didnt see Kup or anyone else from this wave.

Dotm Wheeljack/Que arrived today. I'd kept putting off getting him until now as he'll start getting harder to find at a decent price. Have you seen the price Deluxe Leadfoot is these days!? Glad I picked him up for £30 when I did.

Hello, me again. Quite the Cyberverse haul in the last not quite a week including Soundwave, Mirage (I know) and Evac from Sainsbury's and Tailgate and Knockout from Forbidden Planet. Yay says I.

Oh, man! Ireland always gets better assortments than the mainland British Isles. I remember visiting Ireland during a summer vacation years ago and finding figures that I didn't even know existed.

Maybe this points to the reason Transformers distribution in Britain is so poor. Hasbro must just throw the cases into the Atlantic and rely on the ocean currents to ship them here. Ireland gets the best figures because they wash up on their shores first.

:lol:
You could be on to something there! :grin:

The wife and I popped over to see family in Dublin the other week, so I made a fuss about visiting their local Smyths toy store in Fonthill.
Smyths reminds me of a cross between Toys 'R' Us and Argos (well their catalogue looks like Argos!) but better!

They had loads of Transformers stuff including Cyberverse Drillers, loads of random BotShots and battle set stuff, Weaponizers, Powerizers, FoC Deluxes (only a few), Prime Deluxes & Voyagers(loads), loads of Kreo sets, those fugly Optimus & Bumblebee 'power loader' thingys (?), masks and other stuff I cant remember!!! :D

I was thinking of picking up FoC Optimus but decided against it once more (gonna wait for Magnus) plus he cost more there than in TrU? :CON:
