    Swiped from Toys R Us in Manchester. Sorry for the slightly blurry shot, "normal" camera batteries are dead so this is with my new phone.

    C'mon Payload.

    Also, I find it strange that Jazz doesnt follow EU packaging art standards.
    Most have a photo of whichever mode they arent packaged in, Jazz has two pics of robot mode. Maybe its for the people too dumb to see through the plastic bubble.

    I hate shopping in the UK, these may be out now but I wont find them.
    It's because of this that I got Longarm from HLJ last week and Payload is on the way.

    My Woolworths just did their Winter reset and put out loads of stuff. These weren't with them, but I'd guess they'll be in Woolies sooner or later. Probably in a week or two. Keep an eye on the UK sightings thread, that's what I do.

    That is the problem with solid packing new released figures in a case. You are sure to find the new guys, but if you missed the last assortment you're out of luck. Throw in issues with early assortments filling shelves, meaning subsequent assortments get lower orders, and you have a recipe for fun (if you're masochistic)
