    Two independent sightings:

    Kayevcee of The Hub has found a Snarl at an Argos store in Glasgow, alongside a wave 2 Ratchet.

    And our own Boardwise has also found all four of the Wave 3 toys, as well as Universe Blaster and Heavy Load, at Forbidden Planet in London.

    FYI, their stock is coming straight from Hasbro and not another distributor, so it's the same stock that is going to be sent out to other stores too. They get whatever Hasbro UK sends them, they don't get it through Diamond or anywhere like that.

    Thats a damn shame, and ironic, as i was in Forbidden Planet in London on Thursday, and they only had Voyagers Prime, Bulkhead and Starscream, and the 2 leaders, Bulkhead and Megatron.

    Damn my bad timing.

    I usually go into FP on a Thursday to have a look before I go to my comic shop to pick up that weeks new comics.

    Due to the bank holiday stuff was delayed till Friday and I was out that night so fortunately I had to go down on Saturday and it looked like they had just restocked.

    Typical! Im suprised that FP arent charging ridiculous prices for the animated guys, wonder why that is.

    Classics are still £15, and Henkei Classics are £16....go figure.

    Oh, i dont suppose your comic shop is Orbital Comics by ay chance?

    I take it you missed the part where it said I had been told by the FP staff that the stock they are getting is coming straight from Hasbro UK.
    So, no, it's not all imported.

    Deluxe's were £10.99 which weren't that bad.

    Yup, Orbital Comics for me.
    Wouldn't get my comics from anywhere else.

    I have so far only seen 1 prowl in a store near me. I should really make a trip or actually, now that I think of it, get some online and enter that hardcopy draw on HTS, assuming I haven't missed the deadline for that...

    It's on till the 14th I think, or teh 18th but I'll go with the earlier date to be safe. Just waiting for wave 3 deluxes to be put up and away I go.

    I've been to Orbital Manga in the past. Not been recently.
    They usually have reissue and Jap stuff.

    But I'm at Orbital Comics every week, and have been for the last 3 years.

    Actually a lot of FP stock is imported, but they are imported by Hasbro UK to cover stock demand. We spoke to Hasbro UK regarding this and many other things over the last few months.

    Though these figures as others are now out at the Hasbro Toy Shop
