Please use this thread to report Transformers sightings in the Netherlands.
Bijenkorf has the latest TF Deluxe shipment, consisting of Dreadwing, Arcee and Bumblebee 08 (except mine, of course). Especially worth noticing is that the Bijenkorf in Amsterdam has a TON of BBs. All deluxes are 15 euros. They also have Ultimate Bumblebee, for 130(!!!) euros.
TRU has Voyager Prime and Megs (30 euros), Real Gear Meantime and Highscore (12 euros), large amounts of deluxe Bonecrusher and Swindle (16 euros) , and finally Leader Brawl (50 euros).
I was wondering... with "Transformer sightings", do you guys mean where new items, toys, t-shirts and things like that can be found, or are also pictures of people who have got an Autobot or Decepticon Emblem mounted on their car? Or perhaps where Robots where seen, like at car exhibitions?
Intertoys Haarlem Shalkwijk still has a Leader Megatron for €49,95
Top1toys Katwijk has Ultimate Bumbelbee for €99,95
Toys 'r us is also allot cheaper then those guys at Bijenkorf. Ridiculous to bring out Bumblebee for a 1300 Euro's. Today I bought voyager Megatron and Optimus... though that Leader Class Brawn looked sweet.
At Vandal Comix in Amsterdam they had a UB, but they didn't even know what to ask for it
They also have some Mega SCF for 27 euros and a Fire Convoy MIB for 130 euros.
Animated Voyager wave 1 was sighted in the TRU Almere.
Price was €32,99
Animated Wave 1 Voyagers now seem to be available in Toys "R" Us all over The Netherlands. Worth Pront-paging?
Pricing for voyagers has become 33 Euros (About 52 USD!!!) ,that's 3 Euros (excactly 4.75934 USD) more than usual.
Animated has been released nationwide in the Netherlands, and so far only TRU and Bart Smit seem to carry them. Prices are the same in both stores.
Activators: 12 euros
Deluxes: 17 euros
Battle Begins 2-pack: Didn't have a pricetag, but heard they cost 25-27 euros.
Voyagers: 32 euros
Above confirmed! Too bad I pick all of those I wanted up in Germany months ago and ordering from BBTS is about the same price including shipping costs (maybe 3-5 euro's more, but I think it is worth it for getting it early)
found Japanese versions of TF:TM scorponok at BartSmit.
It has the japanese sticker on the front of the card, and the bottom is in japanese.
[EDIT] bought a longview too, and just found out that this one is Japanese too!
ROTF toys out in The Netherlands!
Toys XL (formerly Toys "R" Us) in Rotterdam (@ Alexandrium) already has REVENGE OF THE FALLEN toys in store.
I went there after a friend in The Hague told me they'd been spotted over there.
There is a ROTF display with a huge carboard Optimus towering over it, as well as a short aisle containing ROTF and older (Movie 1, Animated) figures.
I wanted to take pictures of the setup, but was told by the manager that I couldn't.
Up for grabs (ignoring higher prices here) are:
Leader class (€59.99):
Voyager class (€31.99):
Deluxe class (€18.99):
Scout class (€10.99):
Legend class (€3.99):
Fast Action Battlers (€17.99):
Electro Whip Jolt
Pulse Blast Bumblebee
Double Blade Optimus Prime
Cannon Blast Megatron
Gravity Bots (€17.99):
So far this is the only place in Rotterdam I could find any ROTF figures, as 3 Bart Smit stores, an Intertoys & Bijenkorf R'dam still have nothing. Maybe next week???
Good thing I didn't go to Rotterdam (city) today
But for those interested, Intertoys has Animated Ultra Magnus for €20 and Voyagers for €15. Bart Smit has Deep Space Starscream for €15
Looks like hunting season has began!
I found complete wave 1 scouts, legends, Voyagers and Leaders at Toy champ in Hilversum.
They also have Preview Bumblebee.. but no Soundwave..
And from wave 1 deluxe they have Rampage, Sideswipe and Sideways.
All prices in Euro's
Odd thing that Deadend(or whatever his name is) is called Detour on the front and Deadend in his bio..
Edit: forgot to tell that they also had one FAB Optimus Prime. Forgot the price though.
Just a quick update from Rotterdam...
Toys XL (@ Alexandrium) still has the same ROTF toys in store as last week, but significantly less of them. Leader Primes are all gone.
Bart Smit also put up ROTF on wednesday. The one nearest to my location (@ Zuidplein) sold out all voyagers and deluxes in just under two days.
(For some reason, restocks have not been ordered yet.)
Things I found at the various Bart Smits that Toys XL did not carry were:
So far this still no word on ROTF at Intertoys and Bijenkorf, although Bijenkorf Rotterdam did have 2 each of Universe Starscream and Cyclonus.
Finally a question: Has anybody seen Leader class figures in other stores than ToyChamp (as reported by Crescent-31) or Toys XL??
Still need a Leader Prime, since I couldn't buy any of the ones I saw last week due to a lack of funds.
Found the above and picked up Sideways and Sideswipe. I also found the new Voyager Starscream at Bart Smit in Landgraaf (Pinkpop anyone )
ps: I picked up my ldr. Megatron and Optimus Prime at toys R' us at Aachen (germany) too bad that isn't an option for everyone
Another update from Rotterdam...
Toys XL (@ Alexandrium) restocked and now has just about all figures reported earlier, including some they themselves didn't carry earlier.
Bart Smit @ Alexandrium has Wave 2 Legend class figures Sideswipe, Megatron, Starscream and Autobot Ratchet. Leaders Optimus Prime and Megatron are finally up for sale there as well.
On Thursday, Bart Smit @ Zuidplein still had very few main line figures. They did have quite some Gravity Bots, though.
Intertoys (@ Coolsingel) and Bijenkorf Rotterdam: still no sign of ROTF.
For those interested: Yes, my little Leader Prime problem from last week's post has been solved!
ROTF in Hengelo
Found ROTF toys in a Bart Smit @ Thiemsbrug, Hengelo (Ov). De Luxe Bumblebee, Sideswipe, Sideways, Breakaway and Rampage. I bought the last one (16,95).
Also on sale were Leader and Voyager class Optimus and Voyager Ironhide, sadly no sign of Demolisher.
Some scout class figures were also in stock e.g. Dirt Boss. I also got a free ROTF poster with it my purchase.
A couple of months ago i picked up a japanese version of protoform Starscream at a Bart Smit in Oldenzaal for only 7,50 and @ Toys XL in Hengelo they still have a lot of Voyager Megs and Primes from the first movie.
My friend in The Hague texted me yesterday. He told me that he bought Deluxe Wave 2 Chromia and Autobot Wheelie at Intertoys over there.
Today, I checked the 3 Intertoys stores nearest to my location in Rotterdam (Coolsingel, Slinge & Barendrecht) and found a whole lot of empty shelves and a combined "haul" of Deep Desert Brawl and Autobot Skids (also Deluxe Wave 2).
So far Intertoys seem to be the only one to carry them. Other stores on my route (Bijenkorf, 2 Bart Smit stores) have nothing new. Maybe with the next restocks...
After a short trip through the Centre of Rotterdam I also found the Deluxe Wave 2 Chromia and Autobot Wheelie that I reported about last week at Intertoys Coolsingel. They also had nother new figure there, namley Smokescreen, the movie 1 Jazz repaint.
As far as I can tell this, along with Autobot Skids and Deep Desert Brawl, these five constitute the entire ROTF Wave 2 Deluxes.
Bart Smit Lijnbaan also had one Autobot wheelie.
