Smyths Northampton now have ZERO limbs for Power of the Primes toys or any Titans Returns.

I find it hard to accept someone came in and bought them all so wonder if they are doing stock clearance anywhere?

Hopefully this could mean that new stock is coming and they are making way for it?

Cool, I might actually get Thundercracker sooner than I thought, Do pretend deliveries failed to deliver Grand Max to a drop off point (retail shop) because no one was there during opening hours...

Sounds a good way of getting Slugslinger, really hoping discount stores get the Misfire wave in at some point and POTP wave 3 onwards if no stores are stocking them.

I wouldn't hold much hope for any titan returns stuff now... Unless of course the bargain shops swarmed toys r us when it died.

That thing is freaky. Also £50 for a ko? Yes it does something a little different but still... Yeesh.

Well DPD continues to stupidify...delayed from yesterday until today, except they havent delivered today and one of their vans was parked outside the shop on my lunch break.

Onto the sightings:
Cyberverse stuff at entertainer £16 for shockwave, £35 for Large Prime and they even had some bumblebee Legends in as well

Studio series leaders £40!!! seems a good price for Blackout and Baynus Grimlock (who is actually crouched to fit inside the box)

Two slugslingers have just arrived from Amazon US. Add in all the import duties and delivery costs and they work out at £18.72 which I feel is pretty good value :) Now for the elusive misfire....

Nice :) I think I prefer the Hasbro version over takaras but the ghost starscream head decided it for me.

I always think I need only a few figures to complete my TR/Legends combination collection but when I start to list them it's more than a few and it's mainly all the ones that were cheap everywhere else but near impossible to find here or at stoopid prices
-Primitive Prime, Arcee (mainly for her titan master!), grotusque, misfire (I still don't know which one I'd prefer legends for target master or hasbro for twin guns) some titan masters and Baynus Cogman deluxe and maybe Legends Kup. Decided I'm not getting the gold lagoon toys, it saves on my budget and can got toward other (all be it less shinier) things.

Studio series Deluxes £17 entertainer
Studio series Voyagers £25 (no thundercracker as yet dang it)

Has Thundercracker in the Entertainer? I thought he had only been sighted in Forbidden Planet?

I can't see tesco getting this set, not if Argos/Sainsburys have it. If they do then it could mean that in the UK at least, it isn't exclusive so maybe symths or the Entertainer could grab it. Also mp optimal prime? Is that Optimus primal? If so I may need to jump on that.

Primal, apologies as my phones poop for typing on. Primals usually around £80 so its probably worth me picking up and hoping for Hasbro MP BW megatron or a 3rd party base/display with David Kayes voice

No worries :) thanks for posting about the good deal on him! I'll have to consult my finances before I bite on him. Though this will mean I'll have to wait for a toy version of BW Megs do they can stareeach other down with their masks on

FYI, Hasbro is releasing MP BW Megatron, we have no idea (nor indication) if the sounds will change.

Cool, thanks. I'll hold off from the Takara release for sure. I might pick up the legends jumpstarter at £20 from kapow has having one hasbro/one legends the colours dont match up as much as I'd like. I'm still too tight to pay more than £50 per MP seeker but my decepticons are getting out numbered.

If you're worried about your MP cons being outnumbered, you should spare a pray for my MP Sunstorm, as he's the only MP con I have, and he is opposed by both MP Magnii (02 & 22), Grimlock and Roadrage.

Kapows got some more stuff in their sale, my picks would be the potp nova star at £18 still a quid more Than if it was ever at retail but hey (haven't picked it up yet myself) and my wait paid off for the mastermade trypticon £77 (and a masterpiece monkey might have swung into my basket at the same time, ook ook)
I am going to have to bite for MP seekers or versions of at some point.

Potp inferno is £20 at in demand toys though orders have to be over £50 for free shipping, it is the cheapest it has been so far and they look to have primitive prime back (at £70 :( )

Doubt the smyths website will be accurate, its saying the potp terrorcons deluxes expected instore 18-25th September (no joys at my smyths today) but voltrons back to £92 for full set of combiners limb tigers £16 each (have been £15) torso tiger £28 (previous low was £30)
