    Found them both at the Woolworths in High Wycombe, Bucks. Only got Override GTS as I already had Excellion. Only had two of those and this was the only Override GTS.

    I don't think we've even seen them in European packaging before!

    That's the way Hasbro UK has handled the previous lines too, starting off very slow then chucking as much out towards the end as possible, missing a few toys out along the way of course.

    Might have to try to find an Excellion.

    The first sighting, yes. Hasbro.co.uk has had them online for the last few days. Funny how we have not had Override yet but get the GTS version. I'm expecting Soundwave (already sighted) and Menasor to appear in Argos later this month.

    Sol, can you tell me which Planet Map came with Override GTS?

    I'm just checking to see if it is different to the USA release. Jungle seems to be the most common right now.

    nemesis breaker and soundwave are in TRU’s as well, saw them in corydon today. I didn’t think woolies were stocking TF any more? This is damn good news if they have changed there mind, some where new to hunt.

    That's not a bad looking deco for FnF Convoy.

    My local store (Glenrothes, fife) has voyagers and scouts, but no deluxe yet.

    I picked up a Nemesis Breaker.

    Is the site a decent place to get them from?

    Because where i'm from the idea of toys in toy shops hasn't quite happened yet.

    I've never ordered from them but I've heard people who have had no problems with the Hasbro UK Store. It's basically you getting the toys from the source.
