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.
You could be on to something there!
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!!!
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?
