    Rossmann in downtown Krefeld (the one on Rheinstraße, right next to Toys"R"Us) has Series 6 of the Tiny Titans - First sighting for Germany.

    The completely remodeled Real store in Krefeld-Oppum (now known as "Markthalle Krefeld") has a massive section devoted to Transformers (just like pretty much everything about this Real store is ginmormous). Among other things, they have wave 2 of the Titans Return Titan Masters and Deluxes, wave 1 of the Voyagers, the Robots in Disguise One-Step Changers Ratchet and Bisk, wave 2 of the Mini-Con Battle Packs with Grimlock/Back and Bumblebee/Major Mayhem, wave 4 of the Mini-Cons with Glacius, Ransack and Scorch Strike Jetstorm, plus also Series 6 of the Tiny Titans.

    Intertoys in downtown Wesel has the Robots in Disguise Three-Step Changers Bisk (first sighting for Germany) and Energon Boost Bumblebee plus the Titans Return Deluxes Mindwipe and Wolfwire (first sighting at Intertoys, previously seen at Real, Toys"R"Us and Spiele Max):
    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    The Intertoys store inside the Shopping Arkaden mall in Bocholt has the Robots in Disguise Three-Step Changers Bisk and Drift (the clearance price of 20 Euros refers to Beast Hunters Cyberverse Smokescreen/Sky Claw), the Titans Return Deluxes Mindwipe and Wolfwire as well, plus two remaining specimens of the first Mini-Con 4-pack, now on sale for 28 Euros, and lastly the Titans Return Leaders Powermaster Optimus Prime and Blaster (reported sbefore from this store), now on sale for 65 Euros per figure. Blaster is mine now.

    MyToys inside the Rheinpark-Center shopping mall in Neuss has the RID One-Step Changers Energon Boost Bumblebee and Ratchet (no Bisk), two Mini-Con Ransacks and one Glacius (no Scorch Strike Jetstorm) and a few packs from Series 6 of the Tiny Titans.

    Toys"R"Us in Neuss has even more packs from Series 6 of the Tiny Titans:

    Galeria Kaufhof in downtown Düsseldorf (Am Wehrhahn) no longer has Titans Return Legends Rumble, but two Laserbeaks (one remaining) and one Ravage.

    Christmas surprise:

    Müller inside the Minto shopping mall in downtown Mönchengladbach has Combiner Wars Legends Wreck-Gar (don't panic, the €30 price applies to Deluxes, which is still steep, but not as bad as if it were the price for the Legends figures), as well as the Voyager wave with Sky Lynx and Onslaught! The latter had seen a few scarce sightings in Germany, but I myself have never seen him before. Sky Lynx, meanwhile, is a new arrival at German retail.

    I was just at the real in bielefeld mitte, they had only a few wheelies, the yellow bird thing, robots in disguise deluxe windblade and the blue legends robots in disguise optimus prime, about 15 figures total. We're getting less and less transformers. And they even expanded the toy section.

    Uh and one big brick like rid15 bumblebee.

    Real is massively hit and miss these days, depending on the store. Of course the new flagship store in Krefeld-Oppum has an impressive selection of Transformers in its equally massive toy section, but other stores not so much.

    Although I recommend you to make sure you check out their seasonal displays as well. During Christmas season, they often have more toys wherever they have their "special seasonal product" area.

    Müller in Wuppertal-Elberfeld (right around the corner from Galeria Kaufhof) has Combiner Wars Legends Wreck-Gar and Voyager Onslaught, but no Sky Lynx.

    I'm back....
    But not any new Toys in my area. Toys 'R Us in Hagen hasn't gotten new stock in at least a month.
    Titans Return: Scourge, Blurr, Mindwipe and Wolfwire, Cromedome (one each, €24.99), Soundwave, Galvatron, Sentinal Prime.
    Combiner Wars: Brawl, Swindle, Vortex, Blastoff, Drag Strip (also one each, €29.99), Armada Megatron, Hot Spot, Silverbolt, Cyclonus.
    Ugh, N
    That all was pretty promising in November but now everything slowed down again. No Wave 3 in sight....

    I forgot the whole RID part....the usual - I like the RID Starscream though, which was available....

    Toys R´US in Kamen has an "OK" TF-Stock:

    A whole bunch of Legion Wreck-Gars, Shockwaves, Bombshell. All four Bruticus limbs, Titans Return Scourge and Blurr.
    Titans Return Galvatron and Soundwave.
    The Toys R´US in Dortmund-Oespel has basically the same stock.
    And the usual RiD stock.

    Okay, maybe I should go to Hagen next week if I want a "cheap" Chromedome.

    A rather minor sighting:

    Toys"R"Us in Krefeld has RID Warrior Grimlock in Weaponizers packaging. As far as I recall, this is the first time I've seen this version in the wild.

    RID Combiner Force Activator Combiners Trickout/Strongarm and Stuntwing/Bumblebee plus the Warriors Blastwave, Stormshot, Alpine Strike Drift, Starscream and the re-releases of Strongarm and Grimlock at Spielzeugparadies Wagner in downtown Bochum. Also Titans Return Voyager Astrotrain and Alpha Trion as well as wave 2 of the Titan Masters, Legends and Deluxes.
    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Spiele Max in downtown Bochum also has Titans Return Legends Ravage, Rumble and Laserbeak.

    Toys"R"Us in Duisburg-Meiderich has the RID Combiner Force Activator Combiners Trickout/Strongarm and Stuntwing/Bumblebee as well as the Crash Combiners Sideswipe/Bumblebee and Strongarm/Optimus Prime.

    The best part: All RID-Figuren have individual EAN barcodes! Apparently Hasbro changed something on a fundamental level, finally assigning every figure in an assortment an individual EAN barcode (just like every figure in non-European packaging has its own individual UPC barcode) instead of assortment-specific barcodes. This will hopefully make things easier especially for online retailers such as Amazon.

    The same apparently also applies to wave 3 of Titans Return, as I was able to find individual EAN barcodes for all wave 3 Titan Masters, Legends, Deluxes and Voyagers. This in turn allowed me to dig up these listings at Amazon Germany:

    Titans Return Leader Six Shot early listing

    Titans Return Voyager Optimus Prime in stock, ships from and sold by Amazon
    Titans Return Voyager Megatron, available February 20, ships from and sold by Amazon

    Titan Master Fangry early listing
    Titan Master Sawback early listing

    Toys"R"Us in Mönchengladbach: No Titans Return wave 3, but Combiner Wars Legends Wreck-Gar, who's been rather rare in Germany and whom I've never seen at TRU before to my knowledge.
    [​IMG]

    Toys"R"Us in Neuss also has Wreck-Gar as well as the equally rare Titans Return Voyager wave 2 Alpha Trion.
    [​IMG]

    Lastly, Toys"R"Us in Düsseldorf-Derendorf has Titans Return Deluxe wave 3 Hot Rod and Twinferno. Twinferno and one Hot Rod remain, the other Hot Rod is mine now. :)

    Galeria Kaufhof in downtown Essen has RID Combiner Force Three-Step Changers Grimlock and Seismic Strike Thunderhoof, who haven't been sighted in Germany yet.
    [​IMG]

    Galeria Kaufhof inside the CentrO shopping mall in Oberhausen has Three-Step Changer Seismic Strike Thunderhoof, the "Combiner Force" re-release of Warrior Grimlock and Activator Combiner Great Byte/Sideswipe, who hasn't been sighted in Germany yet either.
    [​IMG] [​IMG]
    Toys"R"Us in downtown Essen Innenstadt has the RID Combiner Force Three-Step Changers Bumblebee and Optimus Prime (not seen in the photo).
    [​IMG]

    Toys"R"Us in Duisburg-Meiderich has the RID Warriors Stormshot as well as the "Combiner Force" re-releases of Strongarm and Starscream.
    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    In case someone cares - there is a difference between both packaging variants of Starscream: The scan symbol for the RID mobile game is a different one.
    [​IMG]
    Mini-Con Weaponizers/Clash of the Transformers left, Combiner Force right.

    The shopping mall in Essen including the Karstadt store was closed down all day and secured by police due to a terror warning. There was also a massive police presence at the CentrO shopping mall in Oberhausen, armed with machine guns.

    Toys"R"Us in Krefeld has nothing really new... just a little addendum: The RID Warriors Fracture and Blizzard Strike Optimus Prime in Weaponizers packaging. First time I see these versions in the wild, hence the mention. Fracture right next to the original packaging version.

    We now have only legends wheelies on one peg, a single legends thunderhoof and another RID2015 Decepticon whose name I forgot :( 
    I might check Müller again, they seem to have a better assortment than rewe these days.

    Saw the RID Combiner Force Crash Combiners two-pack with Skysledge and Stormhammer today at both Galeria Kaufhof stores in downtown Düsseldorf (Am Wehrhahn and Kaufhof an der Kö).
    [​IMG]

    Activator Combiner Sideswipe/Great Byte both at Kaufhof an der Kö and Toys"R"Us in Düsseldorf-Derendorf, Combiner Force Warrior Starscream, Grimlock and Blastwave at Kaufhof Am Wehrhahn, Warrior Grimlock, Strongarm (both in Combiner Force packaging) and Stormshot at Kaufhof an der Kö, Combiner Force 3-Step Changer Grimlock at both Kaufhof stores, and Seismic Strike Thunderhoof at Kaufhof an der Kö.

    TRU in Derendorf still has a lone Titans Return Deluxe Hot Rod.
