    Hey

    Wandering round Toys R Us tonight I noticed a stack of unopened cases next to the warehouse door. I did what any good TF fan would, I carryed them to an aisle and ripped em open! Heres what we found :-

    I really don't like the look of that UM but I guess unless I can find the normal toy for the same amount online i guess if I want a magnus I have to put up or shut up

    It's £48 in forbidden planet, that's not horrifically bad, especially for FP.

    Damn, just back from TRU, they had nothing, almost literally - see sightings thread.

    SB Megs will usurp regular Megs on my desk.

    what excites me more is the fact that the twins are there too. That means i might be able to get them form notts. toys r us :)  or that my local asda might have them in.

    One question concerning those Ratchet/BB two-packs. Is that BB a deluxe version? What is the price on that 2-pack?

    Don't know about the UK but in the US they didn't even bother to repaint the head of roadbuster magnus so that it's a yellow/green body with a light blue head. . . *yuck*

    yeah I seen my store had it a few weeks back but I dunno I refuse to pay over a set amount for a toy that's not a Japanese release and at the time I figured "hey I will wait it out till its in TRU" now I might have to re think that policy
