    My fellow UK fan Tikgnat has sighted the 2008 Concept Camaro Bumblebee at a John Lewis Department store at Brent Cross. No sign of Arcee, though.
    Play.com had 2008 Bumblebee listed for release around the 31st of August, so it is likely that they're starting to ship now.

    Happy hunting everyone.

    Dont worry, lots of places here still dont have:-
    - Legends wave 2 (Prime + Megs)
    - Deluxes wave 1 (the first 6)
    - Deluxes wave 2 (Bonecrusher + Swindle)
    - Voyager wave 2 (Ironhide + Starscream)

    So we arent exactly miles ahead. :redface2: 

    (Infact, we didnt even get the full Wave 1 lineup of Classics deluxes, and dont even think about Wave 2 or 3, *Wilko's imported their stock, that doesnt count*)

    Dammit! I STILL haven't seen any new transformers outside of the June 3rd release except FAB Frenzy, Megatron, Blackout, & Real-Gear Meantime, and Highscore!

    And I live in Hasbro's home state of Rhode Island!

    Damn you TF Drought! DAMN YOU!!!!!

    Sol Fury, where have you seen 08 Bee on play.com? I've looked a dozen times on there since they put the pre-orders for Payload and co and I've not seen it.

    I'm sure where he was on there as it was mentioned in the Sightings thread. But looking now, and he's not on there.

    My guess is maybe they've already taken more orders than they can fulfill right now.

    Didn't 08 BB come in the Argos xclusive Voyager Prime 2 Pack? And Dirge121 most the figs you mention have been freely available in Sainsburys with regular restocking :)

    Yes, however this is the first time he has been seen individually. For those of us (like me) who own Voyager Prime already, this is good news since we can get him without paying twice the going rate and getting a free (very cool) Voyager Prime.

    Really? It must just be my area then. I've searched seven Sainsburys and no Transformers in any of them.
    In fact, they wont be at any of them near me according to the customer services guy, who told me:
    "None of our stores in the UK sell Transformers products"

    All I want is to be able to walk into a store, then walk out with a Bonecrusher, why does it have to be so freaking difficult.

    I didn't realise he wasn't supposed to be out in the UK or I'd have posted earlier - I picked up an 08 Bumblebee the Friday before last at John Lewis' at the Trafford Centre - Manchester. He's a fantastic figure.

    They had him alongside Dreadwing, if that's any useful info to anyone...

    I don'rt remember if they still had some left over from ComicCon but they were selling them first there as far as I know. I didn't know at the time they had him or I would had saved more money for my Hasbro shopping.

    Dirge121 I picked up Swindle, Wreckage and Bonecrusher from my local Sainsburys. They currently have Voyager Starscream and Ironhide in at the moment :)

    I've been in Reading all morning and the only shop I didn't go into was John Lewis. ARGGGGHHHHH. Why is it so hard to get Transformers here in the UK. All the Transformers I've got recently I got from the internet. I just want 08 BB and maybe Bonecrusher. Why is this so much to ask? I need a cookie.
