    Found Universe Onslaught and Powerglide in Smyths city centre. Mono-lingual, has the safety lion on it, but has US instructions, so I'm not sure what's going on here. They were really cheap too. They rung up as €28 each, but the price tags said €23, so I got them for that. That's a lot cheaper than the standard €40 for ultras, and cheaper even than the price for Voaygers.

    Hey All

    I was just in Smyths on Belgard Rd. They have Universe Voyagers Blaster and Heavyload in stock and also Animated Snarl, Soundwave, Jazz and Oilslick.
    Picked up Snarl and Soundwave.

    Ken Black in Portlaoise, Roadbuster Ultra Magnus and Stealth(?) Megatron both €49.99 I think, which is gas coz they have the giant Prime there for €40. Also Blitzwing and Lugnut there for €22, thats all they had new anyway. Hadn't the cash so I left them behind.

    So I expect we';re gonna get next to nothing from this range as per usual.

    Nah, we got Roadbuster Magnus down my way too, I'm afraid personally about what this means for us getting anything else, it bothers me that distribution in Ireland is the afterthought of the UK, which itself is the afterthought of the US. I wanted Grimlock most outta the lot and the cost of p+p is prohibitive. How big is the market for adult collectors in this country if there's no online retailer/importer. I do know of one, though his web site isn't set up for making orders and I don't want to go to Dublin to buy his stuff. I'll try find a link. I saw the Animated twins during the week, not going to bother with them.

    So I propose 'figure watch Ireland'! With the upcoming movie we're going to be getting a flood of these toys which are gonna be in the way and sit on the shelves like the deluxes from the last movie are doing. Which toys are you on the look for? So if I spot them I'll post it here or pm you if you'd like, or if you spot em post here or pm.

    I'm after;
    Grimlock(any kind at all)
    Cyclonus
    Hound
    Dinobot
    Inferno
    Megatron(Legends)
    Bruticus(Classics, Scourge repaint)

    Thats all I can think of now.

    If I get out of work tomorrow early I'm gonna do a run around Carlow and Naas to see whats about, so far as regards Shockwave, no luck, but I'll keep an eye out. I'll be heading to Smyths there and they usually have up to the minute stuff, but what minute we're at... no idea.

    I work in Argos in Athlone and i can tell you that those voyagers are on clearence and won't be getting anymore in, I would advice you to get SS because he seems to be rare.
