You didn't miss much with collectorabilia. I saw 3 transformers all day, none of them good for me. I only saw a few stalls selling secoind hand toys. Loads of pop vinyls and KO lego tho :/ it seemed much more games orintated this year, and the smaller venue hurt the 'con' feeling of it.

Hope it goes back to the Uni for the next one :(

Anyone wanting all of Siege wave one deluxes (hound, sideswipe, cog, skytread) £70 which seems fairly decent as they will likely be £18+ in stores anyways.

Just got back from my local Smyths in Northampton. I picked up Siege Voyager Optimus Prime. £23.99

They also had Voyager Megatron but I did not have funds for both.

So Seige has come out already, to Smythes anyway, for us in the UK.

Happy Hunting.

Entertainers studio series leaders now £35 instore (previously on sale at £40) Grimlock -though having seen photos on here of the better black mamba ko version I'd probably avoid this & Blackout.

I saw Blackout, he looks miles better then the old voyager toy, it's a shame that the Entertainer I was in only had Studio Series Wave 1 in terms of deluxes and Voyagers. If I had the money I woukd have grabbed Starscream.

I've ditched most of my old baynus toys when I started to cull my collection (and my beast stuff with the aims of only getting MP BWars/Bmachines stuff which will take up a lot less space in my mind -though that didnt work out the way I planned when I sold all my Batman animated stuff, the new batwing takes up more space than my entire old collection!) apart from a few random figures so I really want to avoid picking any additionals up other than Cogman for TR and likely VW Bee with cassettes.

ID toys are doing a great 1 day deal on two-pack optimus and megatron siege voyager figures for 43.99 today only:

https://www.indemandtoys.co.uk/product/ ... -megatron/

In other news, I'm not sure why everyone is frothing at the mouth at the thought of a reissue Astrotrain.

A1 toys have been desperately trying to shift the Platinum 2-pack version of Blitzwing and Astrotrain for at least the last year.

If they reduce the price of the platinum set further I may bite but I just don't care when they ask for £70

It's been bouncing around £40 for most of the year so I expect they've probably put it up to cash in on the hype around the reissue.

It's been as low as £20 but very hit and a lot of miss, another three years and they might start doing reissues of stuff they has not already been reissued :P The TF collection were so nicely presented I'd like to see more of them from Takara but its very unlikely as they went the way of reissue boxes with the encores. I'd held off on Trypticon but its nice to have him with all his parts and bits in the box.

As people may guess from the side bar, my little trip to Portrack Lane was very fruitful. I just wish I had the money to buy them! :( So yeah, Botbots and Siege figures in store and my smyths was selling potp figures cheap (£11.99)

Pffft old news lol (apsrt from POTP figures being cheaper)

Not sure how long it takes for Toyhax to deliver but havent had any sight of the stuff I ordered in their blackfriday week sale, so I'm hoping its coming by a very delayed boat rather than lost. I thought the parcel I had to collect would have been it :( but it was just a titan master.

Ebay UK is pretty good for the Titan Masters that never showed up in stores at the moment (Ramhorn, shuffler, repugnus) from £7-£10 each delivered which might not be the peanuts they were overseas but it beats the price hikes previously seen on them.

I also got a partial refund on my toy colours/funky hands KO starscream so I'll be buying the replacement hands from TFexpress to paint up at some point.

Asda, Store specific more Tha likely, baynus studio series and cybervers deluxes half price (£9.99/£8.49).

Studio series is wave 1 stuff as they never stocked any more waves as far as I know, Pudsey owlcoates had ratchet and crowbar.

Cyberverse just looked to be bumblebees.

Siege Wave 1 deluxes have been showing as instore in various Smyths, picked up Cog and Skytread today, so nice to be able to complete sets (duocons and Fort Max) at retail with out having exclusives or third party stuff :) Had to put a sticker on the parts that are essentially factionless when they split apart.


Hound looks a bit better in person robot mode leg wise but I'm waiting for half price on most of the wave 1 stuff from not liking the alt modes (and wanting to cut a lot of kibble off of Optimus arm/back wise). Tempted to pick up another Cog at some point.
