    About time. Was getting bored of the same stuff on shelves week after week. Deluxes now at £14.99? Damn, I can buy my imports for that price. And people wonder why we Ukers complain of being shafted all the time.

    Would've been nice if BB was swapped out for Dirge.

    Too much to hope for i guess.

    £15!? Okay it's only like £2 more, but hahaha.....no. Hmm, I suppose this means I might just be more critical with what I buy. But I shall be buying Lockdown on sight.

    At least we're actually getting something though. But sadly, we'll never see that Voyager Longhaul....

    I know it's going to open *that* can of worms, but I do feel thoroughly insulted and feel that it's ridiculous how much worse things have become for UK collectors.

    Oh yay, another Bumblebee.
    Shame about the price hike, but at least we're getting the figures.

    So we've skipped over Wave 8, then? Shame about Dirge, but at least he was the only new mold in the wave. Of course, I did just buy all the new figures from THIS deluxe wave from you chaps in the last week, so I guess I'll be holding out a bit longer for any new'uns!

    This wave of Scouts combines the next two American waves, as well, so we haven't missed any figures at that size class... so I guess all we're waiting on hear about now is the next wave of Voyagers. Gives me my Bludgeons.

    I'm not going to moan about the price, as I've come to the conclusion that you can't import the things for any less than UK retail price anyway, once postage gets factored in.

    The price of deluxes in the UK have been creeping up like some kind of blister packaged ninja.

    Might pick up lockdown, but to be honest i'm getting a bit sick of seeing ROTF figures everywhere. I need something new to hunt! Bring on Generations and the last of the Animated figures. Arcee, come see the limeys, me ol' treacle!

    Man so while we see prices on Transformers creeping down a bit, we get a price RISE?!?! No fair, I am only picking up Lockdown for sure and MAYBE Brawn. Skystalker to go with the unannounced Mindwipe, I assume he's coming since we get his minion. We have to be getting Bludgeon considering it was the UK comics and a UK writer who made him a cult character.

    wow from £10 to £13 now £15? Importing suddenly is not a bad option for a lot of people.

    Shame they couldn't have taken sideswipe and bumblebee out and put in dirge instead. We've still got Canon Bumblebee, some preview bumblebee and the original sideswipe warming the selves.

    Well, I ain't paying £15 for a deluxe. I will just wait til they go on sale.

    I know some of you won't have the patience, especially after having hardly anything new on the shelves for so long, but I choose to vote with my wallet.

    Most of the supermarkets will reduce these items eventually, like they did before Christmas.

    I rarely, if ever, pay full retail cost for a TF. Just look at the Animated reductions in TRU to see what can happen over time. If we all rush out and buy up everything in a blind panic at full cost, Hasbro will think it's a great idea to keep the higher prices and then we'll most likely get stuck with them.

    I may be way off base with this, but I for one am just going to wait and see how the prices go and wait for any deals (online sources included).

    If not, the strategy is to save up all my cash for Auto Assembly and hope for the best!

    Hasbro UK/Europe are fond of skipping over waves, like the end of Universe, and whatever Voyager wave had Long Haul. :(  Considering the popularity of TFs here, we really do get shat on sometimes.
