I'll be in Manchester at the weekend, hoping to find something in ASDA at least!

(I'll also pop into Toymaster and Forbidden Planet, if I get the chance..)

Weaponizers at £26.24, Deluxe at £9.74, Legion at £3.74, Commander at £6.74, BS Battle Set at £17.24 & Powerizers at £17.24!

Also down in price by less than half are selected Kreo sets!

weren't the Deluxes £9.95 or something? I'm assuming they've put the price up, otherwise I'm not seeing the upside of that deal.

FINALLY! Managed to find a Ratchet! no arcee though...
Got the good ol' doc from a Tesco Home for the usual £13, but he is worth it :D So it has taken 6 months for wave 2 to reach Berkshire, and even then it is only two Ratchets on the back of a Tesco's shelf.
I think i'm going to have a word with Hasbro about their distribution...

The TV and Movie Store in Norwich has Human Alliance Basics for £9.99.
Wasn't Home Bargains cheaper than that?

Still no United Kingdom Transformers sightings then...?

What is going on with Hasbro UK and their distribution of TF Prime figures?

We brits are keen to stay up to date with the latest releases only to hear the same figures are going 'On Sale' over the water at various stores already, thats before the U.K. has even seen the complete Wave 2, let alone Wave 3 or later?

I've given up.


And I did report sightings of HA basics! I know it's not new stuff, but I am trying... :(

(I hate the coffee emoticon. It's as patronising as some people on the forums.)

I havent seen anything worth shouting about for what seems like months now. Every time I go anywhere its the same old same old.

I'm just looking forward to the day that the Masterpiece Prime hits TRU......if it is still due that is.

I'd post more here, but haven't had any actual sightings, and apparently we're met with scorn if we just try to converse with fellow UK fans now.

You just wrote a message not talking about a sighting.

HOW DARE YOU?!

(I'm in Italy, so far, there is nothing except some Cyberverse Legion DOTM figures.)

Hey guys, haven't posted here in an absolute age. I realise I haven't bought a Transformer in this country since Generations Windcharger, mind you, I've only bought Junkheap since then.

Anyone seen any sign of the new Generations figures?

They apparently showed up in Ireland, if it's the Fall of Cybertron ones you're talking about.

Haven't seen or heard anything about other Generations, or Prime (although TRU does have them all in stock, apart from Vehicon -- of course).

I do have heard of Gen/FOC stuff being in Toys R Us. Have yet to go check out my local one though. Too scared of The Hive.

Picked up commanders Magnus, Skyquake and Starscream in Tesco, £7 each. Left the Prime and Bulkhead repaints on the shelf. Deluxes were marked down to £8, but only wave 2 stock on the shelf.

yeah, I saw the new Cyberverse Commanders in Tesco as well. Deluxes and Voyagers are on sale, couple of quid off, but all Wave 1. TRU was the same, shelf after shelf of Wave 1 Prime. Weaponizers are dribbling out onto shelves like so much narcotic induced vomit from the corner of Hasbro's mouth. TRU had the Cyberverse Jackhammer as well, but no Driller. :(

Kreo stuff was on sale too at TRU, but not by enough for me to contemplate getting any. They had...I think the technical term is "crap ton" of it as well. None of the little blind packed Kreons anywhere that I could see.

Non-TF related, but TRU also has some GI Joe movie figures (from the first film...that they still haven't got rid of) down to £2.99 each as well. Was tempted to get a few, but ended up not bothering, after the disappointment of seeing the TF selection.
