Not so bad either, just casually doing a few weeks worth of assignment work in a single evening, as you do.

Pretty much just keeping up with the ODB these days, too much drama on the rest of the site to bother with. Plus my collecting has branched out beyond just TFs the last couple of years so I'm more active at Little Rubber Guys and October Toys nowadays.

Popped over to Toys 'R' Us in Bedford to see whats what, no Masterpiece or Titan class figures! #-o

Stacks of FoC Voyager Grimlock and Voyager Soundwave, absolutely loads of them on various shelves around the store! :-?

General selection of Beast Hunters Deluxe, everything we have seen/heard of previously...

No Voyager Shocky which is no surprise, no Voyager Sharky Megatron either.

What I did find was just one, tucked away at the back of a peg full of FoC Ultra Magnus figures, a TF Prime Deluxe Prowl! :grin:

:CON: :BOT:

Did the Voyager Blaster get a U.K. release? If it did, I probably missed it whilst moaning it wasnt Deluxe scale! :lol:

I picked up my blaster along with all his tapes from forbidden planet, but they only stock imports. And for £5 over retail. So he technically did and technically didn't. They also have springer and blitzwings in at the moment. Tend to be good if you dont mind paying a buck or 2 extra, but their online shop is **** abominable.

Shark Megs only seems to be in Jon Lewis'.
Blaster has never received a official UK release or SoundBlaster. FP along with Orbital get a lot of imports in.

I'm not having much luck, my last two purchases of Jap toys from importers have both turned up with QC issues:- Optimus Exprime Go! didn't have his chest and FJ Optimus Prime's left elbow disintegrated due to plastic issues.

I'm getting a refund on Go! Prime as the company no longer has them in stock, but as Id had FJ boxed for several months before opening it I'm stuck with a broken toy and have to buy a new one :(


Guess it does mean I can have a practice with dyeing the now spare plastic shells red. Any one have any recommendations how to do that?

Forgot to say Hamleys toy shop in the Trafford Centre had the Sharkticon Megatron, visited in mid January though.

Looked in John Lewis in Liverpool, they had a Shark Megs and a Grimwing. Forbidden Planet had a Blaster last time I looked as well but not really anything else Transformers wise, think a couple of FOC Optimus's but nothing more, really wish they had a better selection of Transformers like the Manchester one at least.

Might check liverpool john lewis this weekend, thanks! The blaster you mentioned in liverpool forbidden planet is probably the exact one i bought! I picked up a springer there just before christmas. Last time I visited they had the Ruination Generations wave and wave 1 of generations IDW with the pack in comics. Fairly certain I've seen sojndblaster there too but passed on him as I'd probably only be buying him to get a buzzsaw for my classics shelf.

I am terrible for doing that, having loads of MISB figures packed away in storage until I finally gain the much needed display space to crack them open and display.
My thoughts are 'buy them now, or face scalping prices later' but not opening them straight away does leave me open for potential problems, as you mentioned.

Talking of which, I have recently bought myself another Ikea Detolf glass display cabinet, so went on a mission to free some MISB figures from their plastic prisons, which cheered me up no end! :lol:
Also decided to reorganise whats on display, working with my G1 Checklist of screened characters - http://www.seibertron.com/energonpub/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=96702#p1535988 - I have them displayed in seasons, with the '84 and '85 Autobots taking over most of my cabinets! :lol:

Still many more to open yet too! :grin:

:BOT: :CON:

Keeping with the topic of this thread - No sightings today as Im still at work, so hope to take a cycle ride out to B&M Home Store and Beales this weekend to see what their latest offerings are! ;)
