PRID Wave 2 Deluxe at UK retail.

Postby Pretender Skywarp » Fri May 11, 2012 2:54 am

After scoring a bit of a coup in late January by getting the PRID figures first, the UK has seen a dry spell whilst other markets have enjoyed Waves 2 & 3... :sad:

However, confirmation of Wave 2 is here, with me finding Arcee at an Asda in cental Hertfordshire in her streamlined Euro packaging, no sign of case-mate Ratchet....

What's better is that Asda are doing Deluxes for £9.73!

Happy hunting UK'ers :DANCE:

Wasn't she wave 1? I saw her months ago, but not in Asda. They're still trying to shift the last DotM down here.

She's definitely Wave 2 mate, the problem is that her and Ratchet are only one per case, having replaced one of the Cliffjumpers and Wheeljacks; thus leaving 6(!) Wave 1 toys on the shelf, 3 of which are Bee :BANG_HEAD:

Not yet, I'm expecting wave 2 to hit our side of the puddle end of May to mid-June ;)

Transformers Prime RID Wave 2 Deluxe at UK retail

Motto: "Don't do drugs, beer's cheaper anyway!"
Remember how everyone panicked about the new Prime toys not hitting America simply because the UK got them first in January?
Well, guess what thanks to Pretender Skywarp we now have our first sighting of a PRID Wave 2 toy in the UK.

the figure is Deluxe Class Arcee and was found at ASDA in central Hertfordshire.

Image

But that's not all, Deluxes are currently GBP 9.73 at ASDA!

Damn, if I'd have known this was news worthy I would have posted pics when I posted this a couple of days ago in the UK sightings thread.

Well congrats to Pretender Skywarp anyhoo :APPLAUSE: . At least we have confirmation a couple of us have lucked out and found wave 2.

Good hunting y'all!

Dude, your terminology is all wrong. England is the mainland, Europe is an offshore island.

I'm still convinced I saw Arcee weeks ago...

Do you manage to snag both? There was no sign of Ratchet when I went.

Just back from my local(ish) Asda. All they had were Cliffs, Jacks and Bees + one Soundwave, so I got the Soundwave and I really like it. Those long thin arms are odd and he is dead creepy looking.

I also got Voyager Prime and Megatron from TRU as they have a Buy 1 get 1 Half Price thing on. Which makes the Voyagers about £16 each which is fair given their reduced size.

Blooming typical! My nearest Asda is 15 miles away and I don't drive!

On a side note, I recently visited central London and stuck my head in Hamleys toy shop which had the now plentiful shelf warmers from wave 1.

They had a nice diorama style display in a clear perspex case showing off Transformers Prime wave 1 AND 2! I couldn't believe it! :grin:

Unfortunately no amount of bartering with different staff members would get me the awesomeness that was deluxe Starscream, Ratchet and Arcee! :sad:
