saw the 20% off sale on a tv advert. sadly, their website is terrible, and they only distinguish figures by size class, and even then the Legion Class entry has a pic of Deluxe Hot Shot.
assembling a Neo-G1/TF:TM cast. Please PM if you have (or know of) the following at a reasonable price: Classics or Henkei Astrotrain, Sunstreaker, Sideswipe, Blurr, or 3rd Party iGear Ratchet and Ironhide.
Also looking for Universe Repugnus and Overbite, Frostbite and Longhorn and any Webdiver toys.

Even Smyths catalogue has the same promo pics that Argos use. Stock from store to store varies wildly. 2 stores in Belfast, but they never seem the have similar stock as I usually have to visit both. Prime Rid deluxe and voyagers are all still wave 1. Botshots seem to be the only thing they keep upto date wave wise.

My local TRU has FOC wave 1 and Prime Wave 2 (including the Voyagers) in today. I got Shockwave. He's pretty good.

Went into Bracknell Tesco today they had prid deluxe wave 1 and 2, voyager wave 1 and weaponizer wave 1.
I got Arcee and I was considering weaponizer prime but decided against it.
I also spent this morning doing some heavy touch Ups to my prime ratchet (ill link a picture thread soon) and video reviews of him and arcee will be done shortly :)

I bear glad tidings. I was in the next town over today and popped into Toymaster. To my surprise I found PRiD wave 4 deluxes and wave 2 voyagers. Only came home with Kup and Dead End since I have rent and bills looming next week, but they are out there in the wild people.

Andy at Kapow is sold out of the individually carded versions at the moment, but has a preorder up for a gift set at £75 http://www.kapowtoys.co.uk/transformers ... -5616.html and preorders available for the Japanese versions for considerably more. There's been a problem with Hasbro UK cancelling retailer's orders for forthcoming FoC toys recently, so it looks like the line is going exclusively to TRU for UK retail. Month's back it was supposed to be Argos exclusive though, so make of that what you will.

Haven't slept in a couple of days and I'm bleeding from my gums, but it's nowhere near as bad as it's been with the couple of bouts of infection earlier in the year. I've got a maxilofacial consult coming up and might need another surgery to remove the plate in my jaw that's failed. On the plus side I do have new pretties.

Apparently there's two just outside Belfast, plus the one in Bangor.

Are there no TRU around you? They have all three from FoC wave 1, although have yet to see or hear anything about wave 2.

Smyths Forestside had them up on the top shelf still in shipping boxes, not out on pegs. Best chance to snap up Shockwave if your after him.

Had a thought. I was working to the assumption that it was wave 4 stock I found the other day, but checking the US case assortments Kup isn't supposed to be available before wave 5. I can't say what was in the full case as all that was on the shelf was the Kup and Dead End that I picked up and the Bumblebee repaint. Does this mean that wave 4 has been skipped (since I haven't heard of anybody over here finding anything past wave 3 otherwise), or are we getting different case assortments from the States past wave 3? Thoughts please people.

Dead End is wave 4 along with Shadow Strike Bumblebee and Airachnid, so I don't think it's been skipped. Wave 5 is Kup and Rumble, and I think we have pretty mych the same case assortments as the US, it just takes longer for stuff to get here :)

Yeah, I get that. I'm just saying it's damned odd that I've found Kup before anybody has found Airachnid.

maybe everybody realised that she's a piece of crap and threw her out before she even made it to the shelves? :P

Managed to find Vehicon! In a shop! On a peg! A sight I though I'd never see.

Found him in Smyths Belfast Forestside. Had HotShot and KnockOut as well, and all reduced to £9.49.
