Sometimes you just really want a figure.
And then, very occasionally, one comes along that makes you scream "MOTHER OF GOD neither my collection nor my life re complete until I own that figure"-and more often than not with these types, you can't even pinpoint the reason why.
Yeah.

Time to find me a shop.


lol, cant say i understand the enthusiasm for the voyager primes bar megs, but if you have one near, smyths had scores of them near me.

Other updates are all the shops round me are doing stock take still (seriously, ive worked in warehousing all my life and ive never known stock taking to last more than 4 days). Well they say it will be done and ready for restock by the end of the month

Yeah, I was told by TRU that now that stock taking is over, I shouldn't expect any new deliveries for at least a month. Blah.

Sup guys and gals. I just found the kreo micro changers wave 1 at the Morrisons in Hull for £2.00 each!! Only had 11 different codes though :-?

My phones playing up so I cant upload a photo atm tho. maybe someone else can verify for me. Hopefully they'll start appearing all over the UK real soon, happy hunting y'all :DANCE:

Edit
I can confirm the codes are the same in the UK. Which means I still need Bludgeon lol :BOOM:

Not sure if it's national but spotted a two for ten pounds deal on CV commanders at Tesco today. Not a lot of use when there's only 3 of the Op repaint on the shelf though.

Went to my local Tesco HomePlus, picked up cyberverse knockout at five, and commanders starscream and sky quake on a ridiculous deal of 1 for £9, 2 for £10 :D
Very pleased with the three of 'em :3

Yep, DW must just starting to filter through as I only saw one DW out of four Tescos I visited yesterday. Still lots of OP and Megs Voyagers.

I got Dreadwing from Tesco in Liverpool about 3 months ago, used a £10 clubcard voucher and my discount so he ended up being about £9.97 for me back then :-B

I'm sure I posted about it #-o

Anyway is anyone around the Liverpool area? Been up to Toys R us, I'm interested in if they have the Combaticons in, Don't want to walk all that way to just be dissapointed :/

Ok, after the news that TF Prime Dreadwing was flying around Tescos I took to the streets of Bedford to see what I could find!

Tesco Extra, Cardington Road, Bedford:
TF Prime Weaponizers - Prime & Bumblebee @ £35 each!
Image

TF Prime Powerizers - Megatron @ £22 each!
Image

TF Prime Deluxe - Kup, Hotshot, Rumble, Airachnid, Arcee, Shadow Strike Bumblebee and Deadend (not shown) @ £13 each?
Image
Image

TF Botshot Brawler Launchers, 3 Packs and Singles - Various @ £10/£9/£4 each! Odd pricing (see shelf flash)?
Image
Image

TF Prime Cyberverse Commanders - Starscream @ £9 each or 2 for £10!
Image

I spotted two cases of TF Prime Deluxe figures marked with Wave 5 on the side of the boxes, so being tall I pulled them down only to find the same figures already on the shelves? :-(

I'll check again tomorrow, as I'm going into town.
TRU Norwich will be a disappointment, I know. But try other places like Boots or Wilkinson.

I found my very own Steve in the former! :D

I take it that they are of similar size to that of the mini cassettes that you used to get for dictation machines? because my Oversize KO Soundwave comes with 2 cassettes of same or similar size to those mini cassettes

The pricing and selection at my local Tesco's was much the same as Mel posted, just fyi. Except there was a bit more variety in cyberverse commanders-less with the deluxes, though.

I've just been to Morrison's in Newport and picked up ten of these buggers, they didn't have the other two. I opened one which was Airachnid but I'm saving the rest for my birthday on Sunday. The codes are on the top right corner of the back of the pack and Airachnid's is 23051 50. I got a new camera for Christmas but I haven't even bothered charging it yet, just saying yes, they're out there.

Ha! Yeah, to be honest Mrs O was egging me on and I do like the idea of them. I don't celebrate my birthday except by making sure I've got nothing to do the day after the Superbowl, which always falls on the nearest Sunday. I'll stay up all night watching that and eating and drinking myself stupid. People know I don't really care but they will insist on giving me money so I thought I'd treat myself, couldn't think of anything else I wanted so hey. I blame those blindpack Minicons for all this!
