Greetings Seibertronians! We've got a round up of sightings for those who live in the UK. Courtesy of fellow Seibertron user, blackeyedprime, we've learned that all of the Bumblebee Greatest Hits Toys featured in the Argos catalogue and its online store has received price cuts! This means that you can grab the repaint (and slight retool) of Titans Returns Soundwave for just £19.99! Also the set featuring his three legend sized minions and the one step Bumblebee is now just £8.99. More bargains including price cuts on Power Charge Bumblebee can be found here

On the Cyberverse front, the range of Spark Armour figures is also available including Ark Power Optimus Prime (who is listed at being £47. Currently Starscream with Construction Vehicle is the only one at the £16 price point, with additional listings for Elite Optimus Prime With Jet Armor (for £24) and Elite Bumblebee with Battleship armor (Also £24)

On the Siege front, a listing has appeared for Springer on Symths.con, retailing for the normal voyager price of £23.99 and due for release in August.

Image

Yours truly has also found a listing on Amazon.co.uk for the forthcoming Transformers War for Cybertron Siege Fan Vote 3 pack, featuring Autobot Mirage (with different head and cast on blue translucent plastic), Autobot Aragon (a redeco of Weaponizer Cog with new head) and Decepticon Impactor (with a new IDW inspired head. The set is listed for £65, and means UK fans won't have to miss out getting these figures.

So, for those of you interested, Kapow has preorders for the animation colours of Optimus Prime and Megatron listed at £27.97 each. Also, according to their facebook post, these figures will be exclusive to their store in the UK.

Interesting :? Thanks CyclonusG1!

Personally I fall into the category of not going from cel shading decos as a fixed light source base deco doesn't really work when displayed in other light sources :lol: but it's worth spreading the word for any UK fans who want these. Though will we now start to see an increase in UK exclusives between the few retailers we have?

Lancers ID toys exclusive, guessing the retail stores dont want them o.O

The painted wheels really dont go with her set mates but I'd still need the other two from a mold I'm not that in to.

This is interesting, so Lancer is exclusive to in demand toys while Kapow grabbed the cel shaded prime and megs...Question is who will grab the Seeker set.

Bluestreak is ID exclusive too

https://www.indemandtoys.co.uk/product/ ... nt-option/

Pros: It's £20 so its cheaper than Lancer and not costing much more then a retail deluxe.

Cons: alt mode still looks like a suppository on wheels.

Does this mean it's likely that Soundblaster is a InDemandToys exclusive as well? A bit weird that they'd split the 35th Anniversary toys up like that

Still waiting to see where sound blaster ends up and the price on it, I've pre-ordered Lancer though she's more expensive than the other selects deluxes (bluestreak/Ricochet) despite being the same size class, mainly from liking her colors.

Bluestreaks probably going to sell a lot more units than she does as he will go with the other carbots and doesnt have any out of place colored panels like some of the other cars do, as well as not being a niche character.

I dont think anyone had exclusitivity and Kapow/ID just imported them rather being uk stock which would hopefully explain the inflated £33-£35 price tag on her.

CyclonusG1 may have already mentioned it, but listing for Siege Jetfire on Smyths website at £79. I reaaaalllly miss the £ being 1.5 dollars.

********hunt alert siege voyager optimus at £10 clearance or missprice at smyths (not that the ones near me have any*********

Sideswipe £1
Soundwave £10 (cheltenham instore 2 at time of posting))
Cog £5 (barnsley instore 2 at time of posting)

final edits, and this is why paying £79 for a jetfire is freaking nuts, if stores actually stocked figures and sold them a bit cheaper in the first place then they wouldnt have to do crazy clearance prices on ranges (which are damn current)that they are no longer supporting.

Another edit:
Omega listing at £140 too

Even worse, why sell a figure for £10 like soundwave when most of the stores haven't even had them in :( its money wasted on ordering them from the supplier and they wont have got the slight discounts per order size too. Toysrus may be getting some company in the years to come.

Can we get amazon to price match? Never done that before.

*Amazon would likely just laugh anyways:P

Enjoy the hunt for all those that find any goodies :)

So, I bring you news on how to save some money on Transformers at Smyths, just in time for Jetfire's release next week too! Smyths currently has a promotion for £5 off for every £20 spent on Transformers. This promotion lasts up until the 19th so let's hope that Jetfire comes in before then.

Nice, if its £5 off every £20 Jetfires £60 if bought with some botbots (or a £1 sideswipe...something cheap and transformery anyways). weirdly worded but hoping thats the case as wave 3 of siege is likely in soon too.

True but good luck getting that Sideswipe because I don't think anywhere has it anymore. We all just have loads of Skytread. Unfortunately, the wave 3 will be coming in after the promotion ends (unless they appear early).
