So, Smyths now has website listings for Sunstreaker and Trailbraker. Both are listed as October releases. However wave 2 deluxes aren't coming until September so expect delays. Though we did get wave 3 and 4 of the Siege deluxes mere weeks apart so who knows. The rest of wave 3 has not been listed yet but they are on the system so they'll likely arrive at the same time.

Edit: I'm an idiot. The other two wave 3 deluxes have been on the website for weeks.
Just checked, but Smyths currently doesn't have any listings for Kingdom yet but we likely won't be getting the core figures if they are at micromaster price point. But you never know.

B&Ms got some oversized war for cyberton Bruticus team members in, just the limb bots by the looks of it.

£13 each or 2 for £20 Morph Droids

A very G2ish Green Brawl looked okay, an overly Blue Blastoff looked like a flying crytal shard or something due to the repainted colors and the painted cockpit not really working.

Hasbro has that many exclusives they probably just lost track of where, how and when they are being released :? I know I'm almost starting to :P

So, the Smyths website has had an update with some more stuff, this time more wave 2 Netflix figures.
https://www.smythstoys.com/uk/en-gb/toy ... /187988003
https://www.smythstoys.com/uk/en-gb/toy ... /187988004
https://www.smythstoys.com/uk/en-gb/toy ... /187987009
https://www.smythstoys.com/uk/en-gb/toy ... /187987010
https://www.smythstoys.com/uk/en-gb/toy ... /187987008
All of the deluxes list October as their arrival date which is also when the Nemesis Prime spoiler pack should be arriving. However, the voyagers don't currently have a date. As usual, I'll keep an eye on them to see if that changes and update you if it does.

As another update as well, if you missed out on Seige Omega Supreme, do not worry as it is not just the states that are getting the reissues. Smyths lists Omega Supreme as coming back in stock in November, just in time to buy for Xmas

Hi guys
Just got back from Smyths Northampton. Managed to pick up a Earthrise Smokescreen and Quintesson judge.
Last Smokescreen though they had 6 listed last night. Apparently someone got there before me and brought the rest. He was refused the one I picked up though.
Insert bad name for person here.
However still 6 showing at Milton Keynes as well as 2 judges.

Happy Hunting.

Kinda wish that I bought many multiples of jetfire with people queueing up hand over fist to pay £90 for a figure that was selling at £45. Time machine needed.

Anyways if you managed to not blink and still miss them, £290 selects seacons set in stock at kapow.

*just realised that's £125 more for a paint change and a deluxe figure more than God Neptune. DAMN.

Am I the only one who is skipping most of the siege, earthrise and soon to be kingdom lines?
I don't really get excited by the constant churn of deluxes in the same way that I did with the titan master line, and apart from Jetfire and Scorponok I've not really bought much else.

I may find some space for a few Alicons in my life but I can't say that I "get" the mad frenzy over the recent bluestreak, shattered glass ratchet and prime.

I've been more selective, if I already have them or paying more than a ko MP for a figure thats not as good (wheeljack, sideswipe) and it helped that I didnt like most of siege. Micromasters have been hard to find and it's not worth the £13 for two of them -might as well get a full G1 team on ebay for £15ish.
Modulator base wise, half of them being exclusives and not having any ikkle guys to use them with, Iron works was a waste of money so I sold him on.

Also cant pay £80 for Skylynx when I've got the encore and got the last commander class at a reasonable price and I dont have the money to be buying 3 repaints a figure or overpaying for some exclusive MAIN characters :(

titans return was just a better line to me, X deluxes, X voyagers, Leaders were overpriced but got all of them on sale and as for exclusives, not thta many and not many must haves (having said that I still need a Brainstorm). wiht only the the one wave which was stupidly hard to get and then there was Takra Legends as a back up plan.

kingdoms gointg to be tough on me tho, I sold all my beast wars to downsize figuring I'd just have the MPs but at the rate they release them, price and flaws, Kingdoms looking very promising and cash draining to go with my MP Primal, Neo Galvartron, TL Lioconvoy, TL convoy Bat and repainted Skullcruncher Megs.

Doesnt help some of the exclusives are selling out before even being able to get a retail figure in hand to weigh up on getting repaints (I'm picking up ER smokescreen as I never got the CHUG and it doesnt look wrong like ER wheeljack)

I think being selective is a good thing to be fair, you'll feel less guilty about what you pick up (and your wallet will love you for it!)

Not really, the wallet wanders into power rangers, GI Joe, He-am and all other kinds of stuff that I shouldnt and cant afford to buy. Fortunately with most Hasbro stuff it's too hard to get so that helps, sad or happy face?

Licence plate and box art supposedly. Kinda odd that smokescreen is being sent in full cases on his lonesome. Wave 2 is definitely screwy with wave 3 voyagers arriving before deluxes too.

As far as the Smyths Netflix listings, it looks like Nemesis Prime is the only one with a pre-order option at the moment, the others are showing up as not available for home delivery or click and collect.

If I hadn't picked up some earthrise retail stuff at retail I'd have been tempted on the Prime seeing as I dont have a Prime for my movie figures yet. Always good when an exclusive is cheaper or same price as retail versions. Colors nice on it and it wouldn't be that hard to scar the torso (with parental supervision). I really miss the bullet holes/cracked glass stickers that came with Exosquad Eframes.
