In other Titans Return news, we have another European (not for long, sigh) sighting of Deluxes and Voyagers from the latest Transformers toyline - namely, Blurr, Scourge, Hardhead, Skullsmasher and Galvatron - in Grays, Essex, UK. The store is Smyths in Lakeside, and the prices can be seen in the photo proof below, by Twitter user duck_star!

Remember, if you across any toys, help out fellow collectors by updating the Sightings database and flag it up in the forums here. Happy hunting.

Blaster's Titan Master is already named "Twin Cast", so that might be all we get.


TakaraTomy's Twin Cast is even decoed in his signature blue, so they don't seem to have plans either.

Oh thank the gods they're only £1 over their Combiner Wars counterparts.

Then again I have no idea how Brexit will effect things in that department...

I hope I can get Blurr from BBTS in a week or so without it going out of stock. I want to get him as soon as possible.

SEVENTEEN QUID

Still. Good that we're getting them. I might get Galvatron, Skullcruncher and Hardhead, but given our country's habits of skipping waves (probably exacerbated severely after the Brexit made Britain great again) I won't get my hopes up for any others.

I dont get what Brexit has to do with UK distribution, isnt it handled by hasbro UK which is its own division of the company? The free trade was between the EU and UK, they dont seel TFs to oneanother last time I checked. So things should remain status quo.

Yeah I'm not entirely sure myself, just something I keep hearing. Something to do with exchange rates.

Of course, you know what being out of the EU means? NO MORE MULTILINGUAL PACKAGING. FULL-LENGTH TEXT BIOS.

Look in the back behind the Hulkbuster Iron Man and behind the My Little Pony packaging.

This person is a toy distributor for Walgreens.

Though, notice that Arcana's name has been changed to something ending in "-slor".

Wow, that takes me back a good 15 years to when they used to sell tf's, he'd be super over-priced if that was the case though, they have horrid mark-ups :HEADHURTS:

Oh, they still sell TFs. It's just usually only lower tier stuff like 1-Step Changers.

Mine barely sell toys at all; I remember that they had the old bohrok-va's from bionicle, they had an exclusive deal to get the mask of time, so they did actually have good exclusive deals way back when

Fellow Seibertronians, do you all remember when we broke the news that Titans Return Brainstorm was originally going to be an SDCC exclusive?
Another Titans Return related tidbit that warrants mentioning is the exclusivity of Titans Return Brainstorm. While we knew it was coming first as part of a SDCC exclusive set, there was an assumption that he would also get an individual release. However, an older interview with Hasbro surfaced on our boards with them saying that this Blurr retool was currently only planned to be available in this exclusive box set and would not be sold individually. While this wasn't known for certain, this shouldn't be such a big surprise since none of the rumours and confirmed Titans Return waves for 2017 include Brainstorm as a solo release.
Well, worry no more, as according to Steven Ganne's twitter account - and thanks to our own jamesbenjamin, Brainstorm is not only packaged for retail release already, but is exclusive to Walgreen's. As a toy distributor for Walgreens, they seem to have gotten their hands on at least 2 Brainstorms, as can be seen below. This should ease some of the anticipation surrounding the apparent exclusivity of the figure. So, check out the photo and comments on his twitter feed, and let us know what you make of it in the comments below.

YES! Don't care how I have to get it, he's goin' on my shelf.

I never doubted that he would get a single release. I mean, this is the same company that said last year: "We have no plans for Computron", yet look where we are now.
