Morning groovy people
A couple of pieces of "news" that I haven't seen reported here yet (in fact everyone is pretty quiet *pokes people with stick*).
On to the news!
I popped in to Toys R Us Chatham yesterday for some last minute Christmas shopping (for me - wife was a tad behind schedule, but she is awesome so I'll let her off) and found the following...
1. Transformers Prime Beast Hunters Wave 5! First time I have seen them or heard anyone else seeing them. The had all 4 Figures, only one of Bumblebee (who I didn't buy because I don't really like the mould and the colour scheme isn't even show accurate so he is an easy pass, Shadowstrike Bee is much better IMO.) The also had one Prowl. He is now mine. ALL MINE!!!!!! (Well actually he is now one of my Christmas presents - but still.)
2. Acid Storm is still £49.99. I didn't want him for £75, but £50 isn't so bad, besides he is for Christmas so he is also now mine. They had tonnes of him there, but not Soundwave or Primes.
3. Finally on the Kreo front, Kreo Devastator is down to just £29.99, I don't have him and was never going to pay more than £50 for him and that was at a push, so £30 is a bargain and a buy on sight for me. Also rounded out my Christmas Presents nicely.
Nothing else new. Lots of Generations figures, including Kickback, who seems to be slightly illusive. Nothing new though, just a bunch of the most recent ones. No new Voyagers, just Grimlock and Soundwave. I'm hoping Blaster's cassettes appear (and probably shelfwarm) as my mate picked me up a Blaster in the US, what a lovely chap.
Still no Beast Hunters Voyager Shockwave. If I don't get that toy, I may cry.
EDIT - Just checked on Toys R Us website... found this... I dont want it but I'm sure someone will http://www.toysrus.co.uk/Toys-R-Us/Toys/Action-Figures-and-Playsets/Transformers-Platinum-Edition-Optimus-Prime(0115657)http://www.toysrus.co.uk/Toys-R-Us/Toys/Action-Figures-and-Playsets/Transformers-Platinum-Edition-Supreme-Starscream(0110208)
Oh, btw, I just got hold of a Masterpiece Streak, Bluestreak was my first transformer (bought him in Argos in 1985 - wanted Sideswipe but he was out of stock
) so I have major attachment to the character and this figure is absolutely gorgeous. Now all I need is the Amazon launchers...
Have an amazing Christmas all. I will spend most of the 25th playing with Transformers, because you know, every 35 year old should get toys for Christmas
