No sightings of titan returns toys at any of the home bargains near me :( I hope this isn't just a regional thing. The soundwave is tempting though but I'd rather save the money for Kapow's big powered preorder.

I'm using blot as a head for a fort max until we get hungrrr over here (it looks a bit odd but still better than most baynus heads). Tk max has some dickies sets in:
4 pack two bee mini figures, rusted vw and new car
5 pack bee mini fig, drift mini fig, barricade car, optimus cab, and I cant remember the other vehicle.
Think they are £10-£15, never seen them before but I don't really look for that kind of stuff.

Here ya go, not going to be for everyones liking but one of my Max heads is stood with 3 of the 4 headmasters (still need Brainstorm) so it just looks better than having a headless body until I make room to display in another mode. Kinda marvel comicesque look to me.

Apologies I tried rotating the photos and failed

Studio series Grimlock and Blackout available at The Entertainer for £39.99 each, that's the cheapest I've ever seen them!

I can confirm, guy I was chatting to in Smyths had picked up one from kirkstal (£30!!!) unfortunately the other home bargains are being scalped (some one bought four of them). Hoping to get one to replace some of mine that had QC issues.

Elita 1 in smyths, so that's nearly all the potp over here now (no predaking yet)

No Velocitron set in Heaton Park HB either :(

Saw a Blot at Smyth's in Royton, though - first time I've seen one in the wild.

Been to all of the Home Bargain stores around Blackpool from Fleetwood down to St Annes, no Chaos on Velocitron sets in any of them, and asked a management staff member at each on if they knew if/when they'd get any in, or had had a delivery in back, none of them knew anything about them.

Can confirm though that the Clevleys and Tydlesly road one still had all four of the Titans Return deluxes on the shelves for £7.99, Krok, Quake, Twinferno and Triggerhappy.

Reporting in!

Checked Home Bargains in Auldhouse (near Shawlands, Glasgow)

No velocitron, found the same deluxes reported above for the same price, snagged a Krok for my Lost Light collection, there was another one and two of each of Twinferno, Quake, and the best CHUG deluxe ever aka Triggerhappy (i already have him!)

They were unpacking some big boxes, no sight of velocitron but I'm going to check again during the week, and i still have to check the one in Govan!

But I'm coming down with a cold :(

Sadly no sign of them in Leeds (merrion centre) and I'm too lazy to go to Morley.

Restocks
Home bargains tr croc/quake wave
Entertainer also but pricier

Toytown also, plus hardhead/scourge wave £12 each.

Bargain of the day has to be star wars 8 figure box set at a tenner in home bargains but sadly that is star wars.
