Seeing as there is a news article it only makes some kind of sense for it to be in here
POTP Nemesis Prime on Amazon
https://www.amazon.co.uk/Transformers-E ... dpSrc=srch

and not in the news articles or sightings as such, the exclusive studio series thundercracker (nitro zeus repaint, titan master compatible) is up for pre-orders at kapow (I.D toys already had stock in/sold out at £40) for £33

Not sure if it is still hard to find over here or not, but my local Smyths had some TLK Nitros in, all be it at £33. Sadly I was almost tempted o.O

Just wanted to say, I ended up buying POTP Optimus and Battletrap from the Entertainer, altogether came to about £56 as shipping was free, bargain if you ask me! I love these two deceptiboyfriends and also loving POTP Optimus/Orion. He really shines in full on Prime mode, basically acting as an MP-proportioned Optomus for my decidedly non-Masterpiece wallet :D

I also came up with a base mode, will take a pic and find the fanmode thread lol

Cool :) i'm picking up the nemesis version at some point, happy to stick with my TR Orion and then try to find a voyager sized prime (other than my TR G2) for my 'toy' transformers. I figure hasbro will never do POTP Rodimus in junkion colors so I have opted for the expensive route of Unicronus rodimus and the botcon evil junkions just to fill out my decepticons a bit more.

Smyths transformers shelve space is quickly diminishing (although I had to ask where the playmobil section was to even find playmobil, so maybe it's the same with most toy lines -I'd spotted the real ghostbusters in a different non local shop a few weeks back and was hoping they were in more stores and not £18 each), they had studio series starscream, ratchet, stinger, berzerker (not sure if that is studio series or not) and a nitro in -different store to the one I last went to. £22 for deluxes and £33 voyagers make it cheaper to get the high quality KO Mps at this point!. On the plus side I've found out I get can discount from Entertainer through my works reward schemes :)

I'm praying my son doesn't notice the real ghostbusters or the ghostbusters 2 playmobil sets. He went bonkers over the first releases so naturally ended up with a full set.

I would love to get some of the studio series but at those prices it won't be happening yet

Smyths are currently doing a "£5 off if you spend £20 on Transformers" if that helps anyone.

Thanks eltawater, picked up Nitro with the Smyths money off (£28) still pricey but a nice figure.

All my local Tesco and Argos are still clinging onto TLK and RID for dear life. Even Smyths and Amazon appear to have given up after POTP wave 1.

Sadly, I think the only way we're likely to acquire anything decent in the UK is from In Demand Toys and Kapow Toys.

Fairly similar to Kapow and even in the same county.

Sometimes they're cheaper than Kapow, sometimes more expensive. They have a free delivery threshold of £50 as opposed to £100 though.

I've had good service from them last year and they were even nice enough to drop some faction stickers in the package :)

No Wave 2 Voyagers in the Kirkstall one either, went there in case I decided to pick up all 4 deluxe dinobots at the same time (was waiting for them to hit sales) and picked them all up. Not transformed them yet but my Moonracer has a minor QC issue with her right wheel peg has a bit missing/snapped off but the wheel still holds firm.
No wings for Slag is a bit disappointing and Sludges are a bit low on his body but all nice figures even Snarl...though he could be called Screwl...suffers from screws on display like Dragstrip did. Ripper Snapper is awesome and one of his Decepticon symbols seem like a nod to the heat rub stickers :)

I'm based in the midlands but travel all over the south east. If these are hitting the stores now in the north then I'll keep my eyes peeled, may well become a lot more active on this thread as I'v been waiting for several months for Sludge and Snarl now to make some legs before starting on the Terrorcons.
