I know Liverpool forbidden planet must of had them at some point because they had dreadwing/goldfire and if i'm not mistaken they're wavemates?
Recently picked up armada Starscream, voyager Whirl offline and both are pretty good, wish armada Starscream was a voyager though but Nevermind.
And to keep on topic, the generations seem to be overflowing in the Warrington toys r us, whilst asda and tesco and entertainer seem to have most of the stuff geared for younger kids in stock. Not interested in purchasing TF4 figures, might pick up deluxe strafe out of curiosity if I see one in person though.
Not sure if you've already been to Forbidden Planet in London already, but I popped in there this afternoon. They really don't have anything in the way of the IDW stuff anymore. I only saw a few Orion Pax and Trailbreaker figures that they had shoved opposite the Dr. Who stuff. They also had a couple of FoC Soundwaves. It's mostly AoE figures out, and I'm sure you can get those cheaper at TRU.
A few months back they had quite a few of the IDW figures, as well as some FoC ones. I actually missed out on a FoC Kickback both there and at my local TRU, but I'm not desperate for him and I'm sure he'll turn up eventually.
I don't think I ever saw Skids in their store though. If so, he went pretty quick and he's been on Pre-Order for ages (now due 30th Oct apparently). Down the road in Orbital Comics near Leicester Square station they had Scoop from what I remember.
