ID Toya have pre-orders for some SDCC transformers, and whilst it might not be $56 postage like amazon are charging for punch/counterpunch, they ain't cheap.

Throne Monkey looks to have already sold out of what they are initially able to get at £99.99
Baynus Bee & Cassettes is £70

Triggerhappy, Twinferno and Krok only £12.00 at ToyTown in the Lowry Outlet Mall, Manchester.

They had a Thermidor too at a not-exactly-bargainous £18, but mentioning it as it's the only time I've seen it.

A few cheap Last Knight bargains at Argos. The main one being Deluxe Sqweeks for just £4.99. Out of scale with pretty much every other TF figure but it's such a fun lil toy I often play with on my desk. :)

I have anxiety, depression and aspergers syndrome so my behaviour can be erratic. I don't mean any offense to anyone. I'm just very picky about my Transformers collecting. You're all cool! :)

Likes: Movieverse ('Bayformers' are my fave Transformers), Marvel UK G1, most Marvel US G1, 1986 animated movie (more for style & soundtrack rather than Star Wars-rip off plot).
Dislikes: TFA, G1 cartoon, IDW G1, BW/BM, MP. The entire concept of Autobot Megatron.

Personally I'd steer well clear of Smyths, placed an order on their website to discover they use Hermes which are probably the worst of all the couriers.

Like most people I work and was not in when they tried to deliver but they will not allow the items to be collected from a depot, when suggesting re-delivery to a different address they now say they will not and items will be returned.

Smyths in their infinite wisdom despite having the items will not deliver and will instead cancel the order as the items sold out so fast. Total shitshow and I would not be using them again, would rather pay through the nose on eBay and at least have some semblance of a human being delivering the items in a means that suits my needs.

Yeagh I've deliberately avoided ebay items no matter the pricing when they state delivered by myhermes. Amazon can be as bad though when they use Yodel (who like to leave with neighbours instead of knocking on the door or in the garden -my Amazon address now states to not leave with neighbours but there is do collection points).
With smyths just do click and collect if possible. Entertainer is good for click and collect too.

Sadly lots of Smyths items only allow for home delivery. As someone who has used MyHermes to send items as well I will not be doing this on the strength of this fiasco as I won't fund such a crap company.

After much emails today they will only deliver to an identical postcode area (I.E.) no increase in digits so having to have delivered to my local gym and ask my personal trainer to take delivery as it's the only place that I can think of within a mile radius.

Smyths are quite a new player in the toy market but if this is how they work then can see them going the way of Toys R Us before long

Spotted that Smyths had Blackwing in stock for home delivery so bagged two to quality for free delivery, one for the storage boxes.

Wish I hadn't bothered now. The fit between Dreadwind and Blackwing is appalling, the peg isn't nearly tight enough and the head danging in midair coupled with the mismatched wing sizes shows a real lack of thought. Thank god I didn't pay the scalper prices!

I'm of the opinion that they combine as an added gimmick but only want them for limbs for my combiner army.

Guess when you overreach and try to do too much you end up doing nothing very well at all. Stick with just combining bots I reckon

I think it was a nice gesture and people will only have complained otherwise. You could then make the argument that they shouldn't have bothered to do them at all but I'd rather them then more seekers. Variety is the spice of life after all ;-)

Looked in my local entertainer and they have Black evil Rodimus for £39.99, Krok and Quake shelfwarming at £20 and a load of mini bots for £11.20.

They have Grimlock and Starscream with 20% down to £19.20. Toying with the idea of Starscream and a maybe Grimlock to package with some other stuff on eBay to help it sell :lol:

Is that the wave one prime masters? I would be quite happy to pay those prices.

@skyshadow when you say minibots, what do you mean?

Anyone noticed that all the POTP terrorcons on the Smyths toys website have now all vanished no longer showing any pictures or prices.

Doesn't bode well for them coming into stock.

Yep was going to post, they even updated novastar to have a photo before pulling the listings. Looks like Smyths/Hasbro have killed the line. Not even any shelf space or labeling/potp toys in store other than a few voyagers (grimlock/starscream) that they need to get rid of. Maybe Entertainer will get a small batch in at some point.

So glad I'm only after a few of the siege figures so far because collecting (or buying for kids) is pretty much becoming impossible with generations style lines, I even lost my Gundam sobriety :/

On the bright side Amazon.com has delivered Blast off and Repugnus (now needing to hunt down grotusque) so anyone over here that ordered them should have them soon if not already.

Is losing gundam sobriety a bad thing? Though if you have we do have a gundam thread in the general discussion section ;-)
