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

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.

Tesco had 2 Kups, Airachnid, Rumble, Hot Shot, Bin-man Bumblebee, Arcee and maybe one other on the shelves last night. Went back today after work, 1 of the Kups was gone, and I got the two blue cars.

Also what with the TFU Beta registration up, are we still gonna do that ODB clan hookup thing? if so what faction are we gonna be?

I'd be up for some TFU game-age. Haven't signed up for the beta yet though. Probably should, but...confidence dropped with the fact that I registered for info waaaaayy back when, and there's a beta registration thing going and I didn't get an email about it? Also, the seriously low-class marketing. I want it to be good, but...well, not holding my breath.

As for faction, I say we put it to a vote.

Managed to pick up Airachnid and Rumble in Tesco (Belfast, Newtownbreda). Must have only got one case of this wave in so far as everything else was BBee etc. Didnt see Kup or anyone else from this wave.

Dotm Wheeljack/Que arrived today. I'd kept putting off getting him until now as he'll start getting harder to find at a decent price. Have you seen the price Deluxe Leadfoot is these days!? Glad I picked him up for £30 when I did.

Hello, me again. Quite the Cyberverse haul in the last not quite a week including Soundwave, Mirage (I know) and Evac from Sainsbury's and Tailgate and Knockout from Forbidden Planet. Yay says I.

Oh, man! Ireland always gets better assortments than the mainland British Isles. I remember visiting Ireland during a summer vacation years ago and finding figures that I didn't even know existed.

Maybe this points to the reason Transformers distribution in Britain is so poor. Hasbro must just throw the cases into the Atlantic and rely on the ocean currents to ship them here. Ireland gets the best figures because they wash up on their shores first.

:lol:
You could be on to something there! :grin:

The wife and I popped over to see family in Dublin the other week, so I made a fuss about visiting their local Smyths toy store in Fonthill.
Smyths reminds me of a cross between Toys 'R' Us and Argos (well their catalogue looks like Argos!) but better!

They had loads of Transformers stuff including Cyberverse Drillers, loads of random BotShots and battle set stuff, Weaponizers, Powerizers, FoC Deluxes (only a few), Prime Deluxes & Voyagers(loads), loads of Kreo sets, those fugly Optimus & Bumblebee 'power loader' thingys (?), masks and other stuff I cant remember!!! :D

I was thinking of picking up FoC Optimus but decided against it once more (gonna wait for Magnus) plus he cost more there than in TrU? :CON:

I tried 5 different big Tescos after I found Rumble and Airachnid, none of which had any of wave 5. I tried 3 of them yesterday then went back to Newtownbreda to find they had restocked, and had at least one of each figure in the wave.

Asda used to be pretty good in these parts, It's kind of sucky lately. Sainsbury's seems to be the chance.

Went to Tescos Bracknell yesterday and to my surprise found TFP Airachnid and Kup! I got both of them but nothing else from deluxe waves 4 and 5 (or 3) which I thought was very strange.
Also got some metallic gold and silver pens so I've been doing alot of touch Ups this weekend, and I'll be posting some new videos next week
For anyone interested, Tesco also had legion wheeljack and commander spec ops bulkhead, ad well as both weaponisers, deluxe wave 1 & 2 and voyager wave 1

something from ebay was nearly delivered the other day. either Gen Springer or Prime Thundertron. Now I'm stuck with the dilemma of whether to go pick that up on Monday or wait til they fail to get me in for the 2nd one and save myself another trip to the depot. :P

Tesco beside me had nothing new, 2 Cliffs, an Arcee and a Soundwave. Some BotShots, which I don't get. Cyberverse which I don't get, and Weaponizers which I am not bothered about at all. They do, however have signs up that All Toys are 3 for 2, so keep em peeled! Also, the DOTM Ark playset is in their big Xmas sales display, for £15ish. Tempted by it for that money, but will hopefully snag it when there's a couple Deluxes I want in as well for the saving.
