Is there anyone in the UK that lives near an Argos who could pick up this set and send it to The Netherlands? I'd be very greatful!

Interesting :? Thanks CyclonusG1!

Personally I fall into the category of not going from cel shading decos as a fixed light source base deco doesn't really work when displayed in other light sources :lol: but it's worth spreading the word for any UK fans who want these. Though will we now start to see an increase in UK exclusives between the few retailers we have?

Lancers ID toys exclusive, guessing the retail stores dont want them o.O

https://www.indemandtoys.co.uk/product/ ... nt-option/

The painted wheels really dont go with her set mates but I'd still need the other two from a mold I'm not that in to.
Re: UK Transformers Sighting Round Up (2031363)
Posted by ZeroWolf on July 24th, 2019 @ 1:41pm CDT
This is interesting, so Lancer is exclusive to in demand toys while Kapow grabbed the cel shaded prime and megs...Question is who will grab the Seeker set.

Bluestreak is ID exclusive too

https://www.indemandtoys.co.uk/product/ ... nt-option/

Pros: It's £20 so its cheaper than Lancer and not costing much more then a retail deluxe.

Cons: alt mode still looks like a suppository on wheels.

Does this mean it's likely that Soundblaster is a InDemandToys exclusive as well? A bit weird that they'd split the 35th Anniversary toys up like that
Re: UK Transformers Sighting Round Up (2031479)

Still waiting to see where sound blaster ends up and the price on it, I've pre-ordered Lancer though she's more expensive than the other selects deluxes (bluestreak/Ricochet) despite being the same size class, mainly from liking her colors.

Bluestreaks probably going to sell a lot more units than she does as he will go with the other carbots and doesnt have any out of place colored panels like some of the other cars do, as well as not being a niche character.

Who ended up getting greenlight?
Re: UK Transformers Sighting Round Up (2031485)

I've got Greenlight, she's currently serving her role as left leg of Orthia.

I dont think anyone had exclusitivity and Kapow/ID just imported them rather being uk stock which would hopefully explain the inflated £33-£35 price tag on her.
Re: UK Transformers Sighting Round Up (2031538)
Posted by ZeroWolf on July 25th, 2019 @ 3:07pm CDT
I see :? I checked both sites and saw they both had Red Wing yet if seemed that was import only more or less.

Just found this on Argos website
https://www.argos.co.uk/product/9337774, a listing for Cyberverse Spark Armour Ratchet. Asking price £16.99

CyclonusG1 may have already mentioned it, but listing for Siege Jetfire on Smyths website at £79. I reaaaalllly miss the £ being 1.5 dollars.

********hunt alert siege voyager optimus at £10 clearance or missprice at smyths (not that the ones near me have any*********

Sideswipe £1
Soundwave £10 (cheltenham instore 2 at time of posting))
Cog £5 (barnsley instore 2 at time of posting)

final edits, and this is why paying £79 for a jetfire is freaking nuts, if stores actually stocked figures and sold them a bit cheaper in the first place then they wouldnt have to do crazy clearance prices on ranges (which are damn current)that they are no longer supporting.

Another edit:
Omega listing at £140 too

Why do Symths do these things when I can't get toy them! Argh!
Re: UK Transformers Sighting Round Up (2032905)
Posted by blackeyedprime on August 2nd, 2019 @ 8:21am CDT
Even worse, why sell a figure for £10 like soundwave when most of the stores haven't even had them in :( its money wasted on ordering them from the supplier and they wont have got the slight discounts per order size too. Toysrus may be getting some company in the years to come.

Can we get amazon to price match? Never done that before.

*Amazon would likely just laugh anyways:P

Enjoy the hunt for all those that find any goodies :)
