    My local TRU had Inferno and Prowl for the same price as well, in addition to the above.

    What I noticed though was that Red Alerts had their headlight stickers on upside down! And the Skywarp I bought had an oversized nosecone and a very very loose right wing. A shame really, but great prices indeed.

    All the best

    How long have these reissues been clogging TRU shelves in the UK?

    In the US it seemed to be about 6 months before TRU started slashing prices.

    Damn, I went to TRU a week or two back and they only had Tracks and Red Alert (10 quid each) - I got them but I really needed Prowl and Skywarp. :(

    We got Prowl and Inferno (who I neglected to mention are also £9.99!) back in May, along with 20th Anniversary Optimus Prime, and they're still plentiful. Tracks, Red Alert and Skywarp were released October in-store, but only available online very recently.

    Now you mention it, the TRU site's pic of Skywarp in jet mode seems to have a rather worrying 'bulge' on the rubber nose.

    Yep, I'm Australian, but I'm in the UK atm until January. There's basically not any reissues left in Australia (other than the recent Astrotrains at K-mart). Europe / UK got another run of some reissues which are out now.
