Owch :( makes no sense, £150 for a figure that used to retail for at most 1/3rd of that price and for a figure just a bit bigger than a titans crotch. Still no signs of the chaos on velocitron set over here, little point of toys r us having exclusives if they dont stock them though I'd expect it to be over priced anyways like their previous ones.

Not sure on clobber,

Trypticons £134.99 at Smyths - I knew it would drop as soon as I picked one up! (which I did last week) So if any of y'all wanted one a bit cheaper than £150 your all welcome :P

OK here's a weird one....on the TRU website they have RID CF Galvatronus but for DELIVERY ONLY not in stores!!! but it may cost you up to a tenner more depending on delivery options + I thought Argos was originally supposed to have Galvatronus in? he's obviously pictured in the catalog but every time you go to check their in store systems...only Menasor comes up in the search results & noone's yet spotted anything different from that + eBay ect doesn't even have Galavatronus yet!

I got Cosmos from Toys R Us for £7.99 cos it (and several other TR Legends) were on a wrongly priced peg so they considered it their error and so a £5 saving! Well, i wasn't gonna buy it over £10 anyways cos i don't consider figures that size worth it but hey.


They finally got in new TR deluxes. Wave 5 (oh I mean bloody FOUR :P ) of Topspin, Kup and co.
Still no wave 2 or 3 TLK deluxes or voyagers or tiny turbos. But those Allspark Tech figures have appeared.
Image

They actually have two Transformers displays in totally different parts of the store. Here's a portion of the other. Again not much new stuff. TR Perceptor on the right (and those two rows of Broadsides go all the way to the back of the shelf). On the left is Megatron voice changer mask which interested me but I didn't get it.

I had no bubble. I can't afford bubbles.
But yeah ok that's wave 4. I mistyped. But point is they're new to the store and have never been there before. Hm, i'm rhyming...

Just occurs to me wheelie and gnaw have been out of stock there for a while after 'shelfwarming' for many many months.

Worth noting Kapow has split the SDCC/hasbro IDW revolution pack so where as we might not be lucky enough to get the pack from/at hasbro shop prices if you just want Jetfire he's £25 on his own, tempted as I never got the mold/takara legends version which I preferred over the chromed release.
Then just a matter of waiting to get primitive prime at a sensible price if ever.

*Jetfires price has been hiked to £30 :( Couldn't build up an order for myself to over a hundred for free delivery with not much I'm willing to spend the prices for at the mo.

I can only find Kapow's listing for the full Revolution pack. Can you provide links to Jetfire and the other individual figures?

That doesn't make sense. Overlord is Wave 5 -- are we sure they didn't mean Wave 5 of Legends and Wave 4 of Leaders?

Either way that's severely disappointing. I really wanted... pretty much every Deluxe in Wave 5. At least I'm getting Cosmos?

Meh, half the reason I stopped collecting star wars stuff back when was lack of availability and having to pay three times as much for X figure compared to its retail elsewhere. If that becomes the case with TF's I'll just go back to Masterpieces only (mainly KO at that too).

IMHO most of S5 have better Takara options (I'm wanting at the very least hasbro twintwsit -I'd convinced myself on a misfire to have the more accurate toy gun wings as well as the takara target master) but it sucks if U.K is missing out on retail releases especially when sites like Smyths have used blitzwing for advertising their generations section and s5 for ages.

Saturation could be a factor as well as the prices charged for stuff when they currently have 4 retail lines running at once (technically 5 counting TRUS MPs even if the last one here is bumblebee) :(

@Kurona Cosmos has already been spotted at retail so maybe, it would depend on if they can stock/restock it :/ none at a trus near me.
