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.

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

£9.73 at ASDA?!?!?!

Excuse me a moment.

{Steady paced footsteps. Opens door. Door closes. Sound of running. Car door slams. Engine starts. Wheels screech. Gone!}

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:

Nothing round my way, Tesco's and Sainsbury's only have wave one, while my local ASDA had zip.

I managed to bag Prime Ratchet from Asda Living Belfast.. Only had the one mind, but Shore rd Asda had one Ratchet left yesterday. No Arcee or Starscream in either :(
