They also have grotusue and restocked arcee at Kapow but dont get excited...
Grotusque £55!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
https://www.kapowtoys.co.uk/transformer ... ponok.html
Arcee is now £45!!!! (was £35 at some point/some place)

Will definitely be sticking to my platinum/generations arcee at that price and as for grotusque I'll wait and see what store exclusive and have hope that it gets cheaper down the line.

**** me. I'm tired of Americans complaining at this point when they get not only better prices, but now they have toys pretty much exclusive to them. Mainline toys.

This.


I was tempted by Grotesque. I think it looks terrible in beast mode, robot mode looks nice, but I nothing the Monsterbots. So I don't know why I want it. But then I saw the price and closed the browser. Easiest No I've ever had for a TF.

Been in Cambridge today and went to one of the TK Maxx's (they have two, this is the one near Toys R Us on the beehive centre retail park)
Dunno how much this normally costs in the UK but here's Fort Max for £119.99 if anyone's interested. Not my thing so I left it but it's there if anyone wants it. :)

Oh godammit. I just ordered him from Hong Kong a few days ago which will probably take a couple weeks.

I not having much luck what with that and receiving a damn CW Sunstreaker when I ordered a TLK wave 3 Bumblebee (they're both yellow but come on...)

oh well at least my Cogman is like a tiny bit cheaper and with free shipping... so.. yeah. I just have to be patient. So patient. All that patience I've had waiting for TLK wave 3 figures... or just seeing Wave 2 in actual stores other than Argos...

Literally though. I'm still in shock after reading "Deluxe down to £17.99" and realising that does count as down, not ridiculously up as my gut tells me.

Completely pointless when you can buy him right now for 99.99 from Kapow.

I bought the SDCC version from A1 comics last year for 99.99!

In other news, I spotted Skullitron and Redeco stealth bomber Megatron for £21.99 in Bedford Toys R Us today. I still consider that to be ripoff pricing for a Deluxe so I'm leaving those well alone.

Oh well, sorry. I just hadn't seen it in an actual store before so thought it might be worth showing. To be honest I wouldn't even buy it for half that price. Or at all. I was just trying to be nice. :P

I wasn't having a go at you, apologies if it came across that way :P

I'm pretty sure Smyths had him at one point for £149 when he was first released so it's a bit disappointing that TK Maxx are still trying to punt him out at quite a hefty wedge when he should be significantly discounted (even Smyths are doing Trypticon for £130ish).

No no, sorry if my post came across like I thought. It was more just 'ah well never mind' even if I did initially leave TK Maxx before taking the photo and then walked back there to do one when i thought people here might be interested. Again it was more like oh I've never actually even seen that for sale in regular toy stores before and it's already popping up in the randomness that is the TK Maxx toy section. :P

Almost typed Fort Maxx when I meant TK Maxx. Silly me. :D

I need Tiny Turbo Sqweeks!!! And for less than the RRP? Bah, my Asda doesn't stock figures. And even if they had it on the website where I could get them to send one to my local store via click n collect like I did with Deluxe Hot Rod it would be very unlikely to be the right figure due to the mystery bag gimmick

Trypticon now on sale at very.co.uk for £119.99 but discount of £10 with code LXJKY or new account holders get a better discount not sure on that.

http://www.very.co.uk/transformers-gene ... =trypticon

Hope this is useful to anyone wanting to buy him

Very cool. Slightly misleading price labels under them though (did photographer do that to get all three of those figures in the shot?). Only the one on the right is correct for those figures. Nice to see Cogman there too. Mine came from China but still not much more than that considering I definitely got him (all the Asdas within reasonable travel distance from me don't stock TF figures other than a few RID things and cheapest busfar even to those ones is £6.70 for me whereas my Cogman cost £26 with free shipping).

Just real nice to see these later ones actually on a store shelf. With the way Wave 1 has been still clogging up places I thought it would be very unlikely to happen at all.
