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.

daaaamn, darksteel and air raid?? I thought we'd never get them...
Good job I didn't pay too much to get them from the US or I'd be kicking myself right now.
This is big new for the UK crew! Spread the word!

Dublin, Bray and Greystones (Toymaster and Smyths) all have up to Dreadwing/Ironhide for Cyberverse, Optimus Maximus, the Weaponizers... but only wave 1 Deluxes and Voyagers. :(

I was hoping for an Irish Steve. Or Dead End.

there were a review of Gen Springer on the front page the other day. Bloke who did it had on his youtube channel a vid where he says he got Vehicon and...sommat else I've not seen in shops...from Sainsbury's. Might be worth a nosey. I'd go to mine, but the only one I know of is other side of town and not on a bus route that I know.

edit:also got word that Kapow is shipping the first wave of AMW Microns out this week.

I found Cyberverse Breakdown, Soundwave, Evac, Ultra Magnus and NW Optimus Prime in John Lewis today, along with deluxe Hotshot & Knockout (no Vehicon sadly); Argos also have Kreo Vortex in.

Now, where’s my micro changing kreon?

Nice to hear that Hotshot is on the pegs. Will have to look for him.

Postman delivered my AMWs today, from Kapow Toys. Only had a chance to put together the green guy version of AM Cliffjumper's gun, and it's bloody fantastic. A wee bit tricky to get the legs stuck on to the body, but now he's done he's great. Gave him to Thunderwing, because, really, that bot needs a multi-barrel blaster, and it's even the right colour!

Have the 3 that form the big sword, and the chainsaw kitty (formerly AM Terrorcon Cliff's weapon, now in red) but skipped the drill bull guy that originally came with Skywarp. Might pick him up if they've still got him, along with more of the others. Unless they end up being rubbish or a pain in the bum to build up, will report back.

Well I got sick of looking in stores, hunting for a Vehicon, so I looked on EBAY, steep prices, the AM one was cheaper then the Hasbro release which I found strange :S but it was still steep prices I think £25.50 with free postage I then noticed the Jet Vehicon was just 49p more expensive, with free postage, knowing we'll probably never see that one I ordered it, It should be here with me some time next week :D

On a side note, went into Manchester Forbidden Planet on Friday, they've got much more love for Transformers then the Liverpool store, they had a handful of both Hot Shot's and Knockout's so I grabbed one of the latter because I love the character. Once I painted the little sucker up with some detailing he's actually a great little toy, glad I got him! No Vehicon's there though, no surprise :/

Don't panic on the Vehicons. Wave 3 is only starting to filter out to stores the last couple of weeks, they will get more widespread. They may well become shelf warmers when wave 5 hits with 2 per case.

Yeah I figured I'll find an ordinary Vehicon eventually in stores so no need to pay £25+ for it when eventually I'll get it for normal price. But with the rumours we won't be getting the Jet Vehicon I just pounced on it!

from what I've seen it appears to be the normal Vehicon, after taking some Red Bull.

Kind of waiting to get in trouble over my last post in the toys forum. I'm increasingly thinking that posting anything anywhere other than here or in hauls is a waste of my time and an invitation to unnecessary hassle.

edit- Bugger. After a suggestion from one of the guys at AA I was hoping I'd be able to swap out parts from the leftovers of an Animated Prowl that I only needed the head from to fix up my Samurai Prowl that came with one of the flat headed shoulder pins unattached straight off the card. Having had a look at how the fairing is attached I'd actually have to remove more pins to get the bloody thing off, so it's back to plan A: hot pinning the bugger in a very tricky to reach spot. I need to get hold of a soldering iron for some other projects anyway.

Has anyone actually seen any Transformers in the U.K. recently?

I ask as this thread seems to be getting a little off topic with people focussing on recent online store purchases. If these stores dont have a high street retail outlet then should these so called 'sightings' should be moved to the Toy Haul threads?

Back on topic : I havent seen any Transformers in the U.K. recently :lol:

Went into reading today with AP, picked up 3 Cybertron Scout repaints under what looked like Universe packaging (Backstop, Wreckloose and Undermine)
TRU only had Prime wave one, but I also got a Kreo set, as the new wave was there in its entirity :) still no generations, OR PRIME WAVE TWO! -.-

I believe that's Generations packaging of a Cybertron figure.
Which came out during ROTF. Just to confuse everything and everyone.

TRU seem to be reluctant to order any more Prime stock, as they haven't sold well with the first wave. No surprise there, really.

Yeah, Nova pretty much summed it up, but I got Wreckloose, (good old lizard with antlers), and the4-pack of cyberverse that I can't remeber what it's called. Uni. Bee, ROTF scanning bee, ROTF scanning screamer, and Cyb. screamer, with two random guns as bonus. Pretty sweet in all honesty! :D
But yeah, nothing new ): D:

it's pretty rare this thread is on topic, tbh. it's generally a place where we can chat and stuff, and if there happens to be a Transformers sighting, it might get a mention.

Also, even though it is on a dreaded online store: Kapow have the Fort Max Kabaya kit on pre-order for £35.
