    Please let this be true. I don't want a repeat of the previous waves. >_<

    Argos exclusive. Urgh. :thumbdown 

    As if UK releases aren't limited enough already, they give them to a company that gets the bare minimum in and then doesn't bother with further waves beyond the first. May as well hide the FOC figures under a random bush for all the difference it would make.

    Well the DOTM HA were restricted to Argos and then BB/Roadbuster turned up in The Entertainer for £14.99...

    Unfortunately even if that happened this time there appear to be no Entertainer stores here on the East coast.

    I'm just annoyed that Argos only ever got (as far as I could tell) anything past the first wave of HA Basics. Making what should be wide-release figures into exclusives with a place like Argos just makes buying them a pain. I don't really plan my purchases and I don't much like buying online. I'm more the kind of person that wanders into a store and sees a figure by chance that I might like and then buys it. At least make them exclusive to a store that I don't have to dick about with queuing up and asking for viewings before I leave empty-handed.

    Great.
    I hate buying toys from Argos, you never what ones are actually in stock and it's super-awkward when they bring them to the counter only to find that the one you want isn't there. Happened when I was trying to buy movieverse and Prime toys there, wanted the Vehicon, all they had was Hotshot. Yay.
    They have a shit-ton of Lego friends toys on display though...

    If they really have a UK exclusive, maybe they'll get some FOC toys before any other retailer.

    Like cases of nothing but FOC Bumblebee.

    FOC Bumblebee has not been annouced yet and even if it was at earliest it would be Wave 3.
