    ROTF Toys Officially Launched in TRU UK

    Well Toys R Us here in the UK has officially launched their ROTF toy display at the front of the store. They are stocked to the brim with:

    Leader Prime & Megatron £44.99
    Wave 1 Voyagers £22.99
    Wave 1 Deluxe £12.99

    Superion £39.99
    Whirl + Bludgeon £34.99

    I can see they have overstocked on these two by a long way and at that price, they must be looking to discount soon given Argos do Superion for £28.99

    Gravity bots and Robot Replicas are in there at ~ £10 but Legends (of which they had hundreds) are over £4 each. The robot replicas look great and a step up from Movie 1 ones.

    Also restocks on Animated Blurr / Swindle wave

    Sorry that I have no Pics but my phone died before I got there. Will get some later. Guess we are ahead of the USA again on this one.

    The also had wave 1 scouts.

    Indeed it is. This was the Southampton store which is a flagship one. I guess the others will be the same.

    I've already bought Sidewipe, Starscream, Legends Springer and Ransack.

    Not really, we know what they look like. However whilst i was prepared to use my phone on the sly, but unfortunately the battery died, I did not have the balls to whip out my proper digital camera in store.

    No Scouts, eh? And no sign of an opening sale, either. Ah well, time to roll up the sleeves and get stuck in!

    Since the first movie toys sold so well they may not bother with a sale this time...

    Oh its worth going to hear the talking display's soundbites. I won't post them but they are pretty cool.

    Megaton and Prime look amazing in the box.
