Not to burst your bubble, but the UK is actually yonks ahead on distribution, compared to the rest of Europe.
Still, I wish you best of luck, and that the plastic may replace the philigrane.

Weapon: Electromagnetic Photon Laser
Went into Liverpool today, their Forbidden planet was bare from anything new. But I went into their World's Apart shop, which is similar to Forbidden Planet and they had 2 Prime Hot Shots! Which means recently they'd of had the Vehicon and Knockout as well, they were just sold out of those :/

But I bought a Hot Shot any ways simply because I was determined to buy something, and I agree with what people have said about the little guy, the mold seems to work better as Hot shot rather then Bumblebee, even though I quite liked Bumblebee, the paint and colours are just full of Jammy goodness!

I just seriously overpaid for Hotshot and a Vehicon, £14 each at the newsagent. After seeing the price tag I put them back on the shelf then managed to justify the purchase with the fact that Tesco has a shelf full of wave 1 figures that aren't shifting and won't be getting in a wave 3 case any time soon and I'd be paying out for train fare or shipping otherwise. Shouldn't be making that kind of impulse purchase a couple of weeks before AA though. No Knock Out, but the newsagent splits their toy cases between their two branches so he's probably gone to the other shop a couple of towns away.

I'm jealous of your jammy findings.

In other news, I spotted Weaponizers at TRU for £34.99.

And at Langley's, which is a Toymaster branch, they had Cyberverse Ultra Magnus for £7.99.
Is this the first sighting in the UK?
Also, apparently Argos now has both Weaponizers and the R/C toys.

Need to go back in town, see if I can get a Steve.

EDIT: Weaponizers, not Powerizers, dammit.

Ok, just got back from Argos (without Steve :( ) and noticed this in the catalogue:

Image

14 deluxes: So far I count Bumblebee, Hot Shot, Soundwave, Wheeljack, Cliffjumper, Vehicon, Airachnid, Arcee, Ratchet, Dead End, Knock Out. That's 11. Who are we missing? EDIT: Kup, Rumble, Ironhide. Solved.

8 voyagers: OP, Megatron, Bulkhead, Starscream, Ultra Magnus, Thundertron, Dreadwing and Skyquake.

Spending more money I shouldn't be... Character Building TARDIS console room marked down from £49.99 to £12.49 at Argos, couldn't resist, should be with me Tuesday. Pretty sure there's no variations on the Doctor, Amy, Rory and River figures compared to the series 2 blind bag releases though.

Masterpiece Optimus Prime

Postby mike69_manc » Sat Jul 21, 2012 11:53 am

Can anyone tell me if you can still get the Hasbro Classics Masterpiece Optimus Prime figure in high street shops in the UK. I did see one in Toys R Us about three years ago.

Found this one on ebay the other week. http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&_trksid=p4340.l2557&item=170860529723&nma=true&rt=nc&si=MqF4Yk0u2%252B51xiT4gb4xJgQFmZ0%253D&sspagename=STRK%3AMEWAX%3AIT&orig_cvip=true&rt=nc

Not sure if it's the same model but I think so.

Thanks

Mike

I wouldn't get my hopes up with it being Argos. The last catalogue had HotShot and KnockOut pictured, but of course they never had them, even now.

Surely it would be false advertising if they never actually released all 22. :-?

I had a dream last night, which had me in some kind of shop that stocked Thundertron!
Doesn't really count as a sighting really, though.. :P

Popped into my local Argos to see what they actually had in stock regarding the new catalogue listings.

Only interested in the new voyager and deluxe figures, so asked for one of everything in stock.

Weaponizer Optimus and one each of Bumblebee, Ratchet, Arcee and Wheeljack.
So none of the current waves the rest of the world seem to have had for ages.

While Im at it, where the flippin eck is the U.K. release of TF Prime DVD/BluRay? :-?

dvds of american cartoons (and tv shows in general) always take ages to be released here. I assume it must be because they have to translate everything. :BANG_HEAD:

This weekend the Entertainer toyshop has thier DotM Deluxes down at half price; more importantly they have deluxes that I never saw on UK shelves, such as Dark steel, Autobot Armour Topspin, Air Raid and Spec Ratchet.

I forgot to add that all the Cyberverse Commanders, the Ark and RtS Deluxes are half price too (although some are out of stock); as the postage cost remains the same regardless of the ammount of items, its a good idea to plug some of those collection holes.

Good job I didn't pay too much to get them from the US or I'd be kicking myself right now.
