Good news for all you Brits out there! Fellow Seibertronian Mr O has found the 2016 Combiner Wars Wave 1 deluxes, the Combaticons, at Smyth's in Newport, South Wales. The UK has had Wave 2 (SkyReign wave) out for a little while but there was fear that the Combaticons would never show, and there they were for 15.99 £ ($23.38 USD).

Mr O wrote:They were two aisles over from the main TF bit, in a cardboard shelfy-stand. No sign of them where you'd usually look, I found them by accident while searching for a one-year old's Birthday present I'm still not sure we got.

Let's see. Get them at insane Toys R Us prices who now charges 23 bucks for deluxe figures, or get them for much less every where else in October? I'll wait. Alpha Bravo is my Groove stand in for Defensor now anyway.

Hm, should I get Victorion or Computron when he comes out? Victorion uses molds I already have but Hasbro Computron is way inferior to Takara Computron...

Wow, the Brits get screwed over in prices more than Australia. Not much more ... but still more.

It's how it's always been - believe it or not, this is the nationwide normal RRP. If you really wanna scream, Legends have been around 12 quid; which translates to around 17.55 dollars for you

Close to $24AUD actually. Our Legends (depending on the store) range from 7-9 quid.

Either way, Canadians need to stop their bitching. :-P

You dont have to get any of them. For the same reasons you described, I decided I am not getting either of those 2.

I don't know how you guys have such sturdy combiners, I assembled my first one and he is loose as HECK. The chest minion keeps popping off, the arms won't stay in place and keep flopping around and the legs can't even stand it up!

It would probably help if you said which combiner you were having problems with. But it sounds like you have Menasor which the chest minion can be fixed by shaving off a little bit of the pegs it sits on. As far as the arms go, the motormaster mold is known to have a loose connection at the shoulders but unless something is broken it shouldn't be that bad. Are you sure you're transforming it properly?

It's a mix, but I am using the motormaster mold without the fixed hips. It's Optimus+Rodimus+Wheeljack+Smokescreen+Swindle+Blast Off. Waiting for the final limbs of Bruticus and Sky Reign.

My Wheeljack's combiner peg joint doesn't have a very tight ratchet, so he's too floppy to be a leg. But I don't think he's that bad, and my Smokescreen is pretty solid.

I was once ased if the Skylynx I got also had super loose hips in torso mode and yup it does. Is that a general thing?

My skylynx seems fine. They're nowhere near as tight as say Superions but they don't flop all about.

He can be whatever you want, that the point of scramble city. He was never a combiner anyways so any predetermined position is purely trivial.

I meant the reply was talking about Wheeljack being a leg, on the combiner I made he was an arm.

Not sure if it the right discussion thread (my question is about Titan Return, not CW) but I was wondering if anybody knew if Fort Max will be available at stores like Toys R us or Walmart? An do any of you think he's worth picking up?

Here would be the best place to ask this from here on out: transformers-titans-return-product-reveals-news-updates-rumors-leaks-and-more--p1793745.php#p1793745

But yeah, he should be available at those stores. Though he might just be available online to free up shelf space in the physical stores.
