Still though, I've been here three odd years, and there are quite a few newer than me, so...

I think Valk was in and about the old ODB well before I took notice of it.

Anybody would think this was a sightings thread or something. That was never the point of the ODB, it existed years before there even was a sightings forum.

On the booze, it was time to hang up my spurs. I'm not as young as I was, I can't afford to be dehydrated when I'm working under glass and I've got precious little time when I'm not working or on call these days. I'd been cutting down before I called it a day but the odd heavy night was making me poorly. I'm not good at moderation so it was time to stop.

Picked up the repaint wave of legion figures at Tesco today, marked down to £3.75 plus had some coupons to use. Commanders were £5, but there was only the Op repaint on the shelf that I was missing and I'm really not bothered about that.

Why are you talking about sightings?

This is not a sightings thread!

If this thread was about sightings it wouldn't exist. Time for a whiskey.

STAY ON TARGET TOPIC!
;)

Popped in to my local Wilkinsons on Friday morning to find Transformers Prime Deluxe figures are down to £8.50 each which isnt too bad?

They only had a few in my store, including Shadow Strike Bumblebee, Rumble, Kup and Airachnid plus a hand full of random BotShots?

Visiting the in-laws down in Tottenham, London at the moment, bringing our first born son to see Gogo and Grandpa, so had a quick browse around the local indoor markets and a Sams 99p store, found nothing, not even a KO!

Heading back to Bedford shortly, so once we are back and settled I am thinking of heading over to Toys 'R' Us with hope of something nice and new (wish I could afford MP Optimus :-( )?

TRU's website said that MP 10 was in stock at my local shop a little while ago. I haven't checked again since, nor have I actually went in. Maybe once I've paid all my bills for this month.

Stopped by at TRU Norwich, spoke to a friend of mine who works there.
They are apparently still receiving DotM stock, for some reason, but they're marked down at 7.99 for deluxes.
Nothing new in Generations or Prime, Masterpiece Optimus Prime is still there (and they have two more case of it!).

Buy one get second half price offer is back, on all Hasbro toys. So that's something.

Local tesco's homestore had some Prime stock with a bit of reduction but nothing worth noting really. A single voyager megs, a thousand bloody airachnids, a couple of...deluxe kup, is it? Green and distinctly truck-y. Some random cyberverse but none that I could be bothered to get, really-a commander OP repaint, legion..flamewar, I think?, along with bumblebee repaint #6510 and IIRC a wheeljack repaint.
Water, water, everywhere, but not a drop to drink. Something vaguely along those lines.

And also, I saw your little interview-a-ma-bobber Va'al, congrats on getting it! :D

Thanks! I got recruited and interviewed by two people who definitely did not talk to each other. So the two are not connected in any way, just coincidence. :D

I missed the first batch of these so didn't mention them at the time but Sven Harvey has had a second shipment of the Kreon combiners. All 4 wave 1 sets for £35 shipped with the cheap shipping option. He doesn't carry a lot of stock so these won't hang around long. http://www.geek-station.co.uk/transform ... -833-p.asp

Sven's put the stock up on the site just ahead of the stock coming in, they are due any time and should go into the post tomorrow or Friday. The first batch had sold through by the time I saw his facebook post about them so I jumped straight in this time.

My local tesco had some cyberverse prime stuff in-commander magnus, repaint prime, and blue bulkhead, and a few legions at 3.95 I believe-reduced from 5-ish, various assorted.-Picked up (hyperspeed) wheeljack, and I must say I like him! He's got a really neat transformation, actually.

Despite being pretty broke due to a couple of big bills and a massive misjudgement in cash spending ( :P ) I went into Bedford town for some window shopping!

Not one to frequent a department store but had a look around Beales in the town centre and found they have a couple of shelves of Transformers!

Transformers Prime Deluxe Ratchet, Arcee, Rumble, Cliffjumper and Bumblebee (£13), Weaponizers Optimus Prime and Bumblebee (£35!!) and Voyager Ultra Magnus, Starscream and Optimus Prime (£23) too!

:BOT: :CON:

Had another ride over to B & M Home Store in Bedford to see what was on offer.
Pretty much the same old stuff from my previous B & M post, but a new Kre-o set which I havent seen before?
Kre-o Street Showdown with Knockout and Wheeljack (£12.99), Kre-o Rotor Storm with Vortex (£9.99), Kre-o Sideswipe (£9.99), RotF Human Alliance Sideswipe with Epps (£14.99), DotM Voyager Sentinel Prime (£12.99) and DotM Deluxe Starscream and Thundercracker (£6.99), DotM Leader Bumblebee and Ironhide (£24.99) and Star Wars Crossover Darth Vader Star Destroyer (24.99) plus the usual handful of random BotShot singles and Launchers and a few dog eared DotM Cyberverse figure!
