Motto: "Till All Are Pun!"
Stopped by at TRU Norwich, spoke to a friend of mine who works there.
They are apparently still receiving DotM stock, for some reason, but they're marked down at 7.99 for deluxes.
Nothing new in Generations or Prime, Masterpiece Optimus Prime is still there (and they have two more case of it!).

Buy one get second half price offer is back, on all Hasbro toys. So that's something.

Weapon: Requiem Blaster
Local tesco's homestore had some Prime stock with a bit of reduction but nothing worth noting really. A single voyager megs, a thousand bloody airachnids, a couple of...deluxe kup, is it? Green and distinctly truck-y. Some random cyberverse but none that I could be bothered to get, really-a commander OP repaint, legion..flamewar, I think?, along with bumblebee repaint #6510 and IIRC a wheeljack repaint.
Water, water, everywhere, but not a drop to drink. Something vaguely along those lines.

And also, I saw your little interview-a-ma-bobber Va'al, congrats on getting it! :D

Thanks! I got recruited and interviewed by two people who definitely did not talk to each other. So the two are not connected in any way, just coincidence. :D

I missed the first batch of these so didn't mention them at the time but Sven Harvey has had a second shipment of the Kreon combiners. All 4 wave 1 sets for £35 shipped with the cheap shipping option. He doesn't carry a lot of stock so these won't hang around long. http://www.geek-station.co.uk/transform ... -833-p.asp

Sven's put the stock up on the site just ahead of the stock coming in, they are due any time and should go into the post tomorrow or Friday. The first batch had sold through by the time I saw his facebook post about them so I jumped straight in this time.

So are TRU offering the MP Optimus under that offer? If so that would make purchasing him a lot more viable! ;)

My local tesco had some cyberverse prime stuff in-commander magnus, repaint prime, and blue bulkhead, and a few legions at 3.95 I believe-reduced from 5-ish, various assorted.-Picked up (hyperspeed) wheeljack, and I must say I like him! He's got a really neat transformation, actually.

:D

Despite being pretty broke due to a couple of big bills and a massive misjudgement in cash spending ( :P ) I went into Bedford town for some window shopping!

Not one to frequent a department store but had a look around Beales in the town centre and found they have a couple of shelves of Transformers!

Transformers Prime Deluxe Ratchet, Arcee, Rumble, Cliffjumper and Bumblebee (£13), Weaponizers Optimus Prime and Bumblebee (£35!!) and Voyager Ultra Magnus, Starscream and Optimus Prime (£23) too!

:BOT: :CON:

Had another ride over to B & M Home Store in Bedford to see what was on offer.
Pretty much the same old stuff from my previous B & M post, but a new Kre-o set which I havent seen before?
Kre-o Street Showdown with Knockout and Wheeljack (£12.99), Kre-o Rotor Storm with Vortex (£9.99), Kre-o Sideswipe (£9.99), RotF Human Alliance Sideswipe with Epps (£14.99), DotM Voyager Sentinel Prime (£12.99) and DotM Deluxe Starscream and Thundercracker (£6.99), DotM Leader Bumblebee and Ironhide (£24.99) and Star Wars Crossover Darth Vader Star Destroyer (24.99) plus the usual handful of random BotShot singles and Launchers and a few dog eared DotM Cyberverse figure!

That they certainly are it seems! MP-10 and Soundwave are the only two masterpieces I'm interested in, really-colour me jealous also.
MP-10 I fully intend to get if I see it and can afford it. Soundwave is a definite buy when he's released I do not care if I have to sell a kidney for him. Or possibly a lung, knowing Hasbro.

Popped into Reading TRU this morning, finally got myself Voyager Dreadwing. Also got Legion Breakdown for half price, only for the weapon, so I'll be giving him to AP :D

they had the usual prid deluxes, some dotm stuff, mp op and roddy, and also the generations cassetticons two packs (both) but for £13!
Transformers Energon is everyone's guilty pleasure. Go on. Admit it.

Well damn, it seems I forgot to mention yesterday that I picked up legions arcee and breakdown XD
Both pretty alright-breakdown's truck mode is adorable.

And how much were the MP OPs going for? about £1,000,000 I assume...

I built my Kreon combiners tonight and overall I'm pretty impressed. There are a couple of pieces that don't really have much bite and I'd have preferred tampos over stickers but those are pretty minor quibbles. Nice articulation and they seem to be pretty well balanced. I'll be keeping my eye out for a second set of each to build as the individual bots with all the unused parts at the end going in my big box of Lego and compatible bricks. The spare swords and guns left over from building the combined modes will find their way into the hands of some Lego figures.
