Have you seen Masterpiece Soundwave.

Grappel is a lovely figure and no mistake. He's chunky but not too cumbersome-although for whatever daft reason HasTak remolded the arms from inferno, and in doing so decided to remove the wrist rotation or ability to hold anything. Huh, go figure.

As for Sizzle and Fizzle, hows the cybertron Clocker mold work for you? it is scout size and already has numerous repaints (blue, red, and the original white+tal).

considered Clocker. a red one and a blue one could work. the chunky pipes on his arms/doors could be the Sparkabot gimmick (in my head) but was hoping for something newer, and less in-demand. People (understandably) love them some Clocker.
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.

Anybody got a chain called Factory Warehouse near them? I'd never heard of them and they don't seem to have a website but according to my facebook contacts they've got the DVD wave of Prime deluxes. That should be the assortment with 2 Vehicons per case.

Not sure if anyone else has seen this yet, but the Beast Hunters first wave is up for pre-order on thetoyshop.com. Deluxes are £13, Cyberverse Leaders £9, and Voyagers £23. The release date on the website is 30th May, which means we should see these puppies turning up all over this place in the next couple of weeks :)

Some alternatives could be:

Picked up a Steve at my local Entertainer for £10, only one there but overjoyed that I have one at long last :D
Also got a Thor figure at half price. Accidentally decapitated him within a minute of getting him out of the box. Oops.

I'm worried that if no one takes them, we might not get a good shipment of Soundwaves when those hit.

If TRU thought about knocking down the price, I'd be more than tempted to snap one up (well, from my local that is, which I've not been into in months). I mean I'm not saying it's bad value necessarily, it's just freakin' expensive. And yes, I'm also kinda worried about price/distribution of Soundwave, when he's finally released over here.


He's awesome. I got him on the buy one get one half price deal and had to put the other one on Ebay. It went for £93 and I got a £10 coupon (from TRU) too so technically I got him for £47. Bargain I say. Used the coupon to get Thundertron for £4.99. Just a thought.

Well, Soundwave came out after MP10 and I did say first masterpiece that I got excited by.
Soundwave looks divine, but I'm just not really a Soundwave fan.

Also, bumhats, I would've got Hot Spot if I'd known about Grappel's hands...
Way to go AP... ;)

Defeated by not paying attention once again...
And yes, but Hot Spot doesn't come with the ridiculously massive and awkward but still barrels of fun crane arm.

Part of the problem I'd guess is, is MP10 sitting beside Leader class Dotm BBees on TRU shelves at your local store? He is in mine.
Parents see Leader BumbleBee at £25 beside MP10 selling at £100. You know wee jonny's got no chance of taking home Prime when his parents see the £75 difference, for pretty much the same size toy. TRU are shooting them selves in the foot, but what's changed >:oP

Also think we will just get the basics? Wave 1 of both Deluxe and Voyagers?

Seen a review of BH Ultra Magnus, does look good. Want me loads of Beast Hunters!

I've just been to my nearest Smyths toy store and picked up a couple of deluxe Vehicon's for £8.99 :) I do really need to stop buying every Steve I see in a shop... They had other Deluxe as well, a couple of Dead Ends, Arcee, Ratchet, Airachnid and a boat load of Kups. They also had the Bruticus wave of FoC figures but only a Prime, a Vortex and a couple of Brawls left.

Don't think so, I have seen them in Smyths a couple of times and I got most of my Bruticus set from The Entertainer before Christmas. Don't see them much anywhere any more, except Prime and the "Cassettes" who appear to be shelf warming my nearest Toys R Us's.

How many Steve's/Steven's/Stephen's is that you've now got?
That's news to me, I've been waiting for the 2nd wave to hit our shores!

I have 8 Deluxe Steves now, 1 First Edition Steve and 9 Mini Steves. Some are still carded. More due to shelf space than any real desire to not open them. My local Sainsburys has 2 sat on the shelf right now, but I cant quite justify spending full price on some thing I have so many of...

FoC wave 2 appeared for me just before Xmas, and sporadically appears in a few shops down my way, but I havent seen enough to make a full Bruticus since I lucked out while Xmas shopping (my misses bought me all 5 over 2 shops in one trip :) )

Then I'm afraid this news has come a bit too late for you mate. They have been around in TRU since December and Smyths since January/February, now though, you're lucky if you find any in either store. I had to resort to ordering a Vortex online cos I couldn't find any more combaticons anywhere to complete my lot.
BTW, if you want wave 3 , hit up a Forbidden Planet, they have them as well as wave 2 in stock. But at higher prices...

Bloody Nora. My local TRU is still flood with FOC wave 1 (was last time i checked 3 weeks ago), and a friend is in there at least once a week too. Lousy Nottingham distribution!
