Greetings fellow Terrorcon Hunters.

I've just been to the Smyths at Glasgow Fort. No luck on the discounted POTP robos I'm afraid! They did have Siege stuff tho! Cog, Skytread, Sideswipe and Hound. Plus some studio series, tho disappointingly none from bumblebee.

They did have the black combining Voltron lion for £15 and an apparently endless supply of black series Jyn Erso for£5 lol

Got myself Cog and Skytread, the Siege deluxes were 16.99 apiece.

The hunt continues.

So, in a rather surprising turnout, my Smyths store today received four boxes of the titans return overlord figure. He's £44.99 but isn't currently listed on the website so I don't know if all stores have/will be getting him. Hope you're all able to find.

Thats a weird and cool find, can't justify the price having paid out for a Takara Legends version but def need the hasbro one at some point.

Titans Return Trypticon £70 at Kapow https://www.kapowtoys.co.uk/new-arrival ... ticon.html

*also Entertainers is at it again with sale prices, Thhundercracker SS now £19.99 (£2.50 more than what it was)

Entertainers got wave 1 battlemasters in £6 each (lionizer, blowpipe, firedrive)

Edit: Also a honorable/dishonorable mention, Leeds market had some kind of transforming train with track armed robot (robot looks to be composed of carriages to form its legs/hands) almost rid train combined colors but with an electronics device (which is the only part of it to have a baynus autobot symbol on it). For £20, not been able to find photos of it online as yet.

Smyths Milton Keynes has the Overlords for 44.99 and Megatron SS13.

Other than that, no special clearances on POTP, the clearance bays at the front of the store were full of WWF. AND STILL TRYING TO FLOG THE DEATH OUT OF DRAGONSTORM.

Thats probably why Leadclass Dragonstorm (£44.99 instore) isnt on their website so they can sell the super blocky version.

Just the wave 1 siege deluxes and early SS stuff, TR Overlord as well at Kirkstall.

Godzilla King of Monsters figures (and they are slightly crappy :( Rodan is red??? Ghidorah is shiny gold on packaging and figure is dull brown/yellow) in months before the films out and yet no bumbleebee SS figures dang it. Voltron combining Lions £12 each in Forbidden Planet is about the best mech/robot fix there is at the mo.

Also no siege ravage/lazerbeak which has been sighted in forbidden planet by carnivus but they had a siege ultra Magnus £50 (as much as I want it the kfc masterpiece Magnus can be sometimes found for £50-£80)

if any one has been tempted for potp nenesis prime exclusive, amazon uk and the code BIGTHANKS (check amazon home page for code) £5 off so £30.56 delivered, codes only valid for 24 hours/timed.

Amount has to be over £25 so it can be used on a few siege products that arent overpriced and through amazon themselves eg:
Siege Ultra Magnus £36ish
Maybe Sideswipe and prowl £29 (Not sure if offer includes pre-orders, amazon also have starscream listed too)

Forbidden Planet in Glasgow had 3 of the Retro Pop Highway Vol 2 sets in yesterday for £60.00 if anyone's mental enough. It's fookin' tiny!! I know there's 2 cassettes as well but £60.00? I bought what I thought was an Ebay bargain SS Bee that turned out to be an oversized KO of the Beetle Bee from this set. In the Studio Series thread I asked about the official toy's size and posted some pics in reply to questions about the KO and to be honest I got the better deal, it's more than double the size in vehicle mode from what I saw of the Hasbro toy and it cost me £18.00. Sorry, I forgot this wasn't "Disgruntled Brits" anymore but the prices are getting silly for toys.

I was going to pick up the retro pack at £48 (still pricey for what it is) from Kapow when Big powered was out, sadly they sold out of retro pop and big powered. Wallet saved if anything. Prices are crazy and the oversized KO sounds a much better deal :) only thing Forbidden Planet had near me was the Real ghostbusters Diamond select figures -and seeing collect all 15 (15 x £25!!! and the figures are a mix of film/real) just to get the firestation doors. Pretty soon kids will have to go back to the old potato and cocktail sticks for a toy.

Kapows got SS Dropkick in at £10 plus postage (nowt I want enough to bulk up the buy for free postage tho SS Cogman is on my wants at some point).

This is going to be a little bit niche and pssibly a bit a head of itself but Zavvi has pre-orders for the Super 7 stuff (Keshis & 11" Prime and Megatron)

Super 7 Optimus £75
https://www.zavvi.com/merch-action-figu ... 63849.html

Super 7 Megatron £75
https://www.zavvi.com/merch-action-figu ... xt=default

Keshis (Muscle) faction boxes autobots or decepticons £83 each
https://www.zavvi.com/elysium.search?search=keshi

Clothing 'Prime Collection' coming on 17.04.19

Not sure if the price on the keshis/super 7 stuff is good or bad, but it is normally easy to find a 10% discount code for Zavvi

I couldn't find anything to say this was against the forum rules, so apologies if I've missed something.

Games and Cards UK stock Studio Series, WFC Siege and other lines. Free delivery over £30 as well.


https://www.gamesandcards.co.uk/transformers-131-c.asp

I'm a big Transformers fan myself and grew up watching and collecting the G1 Transformers as a kid, so we'll be stocking all the new releases as we can get hold of them.

We managed to get some WFC Siege Deluxe Prowl last week as well as a bunch of both Leader Ultra Magnus and Shockwave, and should have Deluxe Ironhide and Voyager Starscream next week. Chromia and Six Guns are currently MIA and could arrive anytime.

So, the Smyths store I work at (Longton) had a delivery of the wave 2 WFC voyagers today. No word on when we'll be getting the deluxes, I expect mid/late May.

So, an update for you all. The Smyths internal systems have been updated to list all of the wfc siege deluxes, voyagers and leaders that have already been announced. I also have confirmation that we will be getting Commander class Jetfire and Titan class Omega Supreme. There was one last interesting listing though: TRA GEN WFC DECEPTICON FAN VOTE DELUXE (I cant provide an image of the listings as it breaches my contract). I do not know what this figure could be. We also have Impactor listed under a similar title (Autobot deluxe). So does anyone have any ideas what this decepticon one would be?

The fan vote thing was a bit weird as the winner was impactor vs mirage, and there is a mirage deluxe figure coming out (impactor supposed to have deception logo but it's just a white outline of autobot symbol over his purple color) the deceptions in the fan vote were needle nose and spinister Cool to know on omega and jet fire, thanks :)

I don't know myself, according to staff who've worked at the store longer than myself, we did at least get Trypticon so we should be getting them in stores. Especially considering that Smyths doesn't do online exclusives.

Smyths def had trypticon, where I picked mine up from. Think he was discounted after a long while too for uber low price.
Smyths sometimes has store exclusives but not seen that many toys that were (a few imaginext power rangers things are about the only thing that's stood out in my memory)
