Wilko is always amazing for transformers. Only place other than TRU I can generally get the new releases in Brighton\Worthing



There's a Wilko in Brighton?

You used to have good toys shops down there and decent vintage in the lanes.

Shame its all gone :(

Be careful with buticus, it gets stress marks easily on the weapons especially the one on onslaughts back which hold part of it in place

Thanks for the info i felt it was cheaper to get bruticus as a whole for £50 instead of paying around £65 for the 5 combaticons individually and since no retailer in the uk knows when the new transformers figures will be released i might as well start getting some off the web even when the age of extinction figures gets released i wont be getting them all straight away as some will go down in price

I didnt manage to get out as far as I wanted at the weekend, so only popped in to B&M Home Store to see whats what.

Not sure what they are doing in the Bedford store but there was no Transformers. None. Nil. :???:

I had a good look around but only found two 1:18 scale RoadBots squeezed onto a shelf that was way too small for them so both boxes had been crushed? Nice one B&M! :michaelbay:

I found a Shark Megs at Sainsburys on Monday. It also seems like they are ramping up their TF stock as it's the first time my local has had Voyagers since DotM...

I got Knock-out in mine, he is also shown in the instruction manual so I would guess, unless there are multiple versions of the manual, that Knock-out is the "mystery" character in every set. But I am happy to be wrong on that!

I see online that Prime set has gone down to £11 so I will pick that up soon as well :)

Has anyone seen Wave 3 of the Micro Changers anywhere? My local Morrisons where I have picked up all the others Still has Wave 2.. Even put out fresh boxes of them the past week or so :(

I've seen them about a fair bit, Prowls I mean. Last week in toys r us in Southampton. A few around my neck of the woods too.

Let me know if you want one, I'll pick you one up if I see them in the next few days.

I am guessing that the appearance of the simplified Voyagers is the final decider in the grand will-we-see-Shockwave debate.

Tesco Extra Brent Park:
Nothing too noteworthy... Sharkticon Megatron was present at £24, and BH deluxes and Commanders Also spotted in neighbouring Ikea: moosemeat salami. Highly recommended. You can really taste the moose. It got me thinking there should have been a Beast era moose-former. Antlers.

Somebody on transformers addicts facebook page has posted a pic of new construct-bots in sainsburys. Included shockwave, silverbolt and dragstrip. And cliffjumper I think!
