Happy hunting Brits.
There is also a report of Classics Optimus Prime being released in Argos in the UK sightings thread (StructuralDefect, http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/showpost.php?p=912607&postcount=706)
Definately looks like they're out. I'm waiting on the BBTS preorder with Jetfire, otherwise I'd get them to verify.
I'm going to hit my local Argos' today, hopefully I'll come back with a Prime and a receipt!
Hopefully this means the Netherlands won't be far behind. I want a Classics Prime and Megs without paying an arm and a leg for them. Alright, 30 euros (somewhere around 40 dollars) is already expensive, but at least I won't have to pay shipping on top of that.
i work at one of the distribution centres for Argos and can confirm that classics prime and megatron are in stock in stores under the voyager catalogue number but stocks are limited. we are getting 2000 more which will be in stock in the stores in 3 weeks. i get ten percent off mine woooo
I'll be checking Leicester Argos Extra today!
I'll have a look under deluxes aswell, maybe score me a Rodimus?
No it isn't.
Toyz and Games in Norwich were confirmed as having U.K. sourced stock about a week ago. They were also sighted in either Glasgow of Edinburgh about the same time.
Unless someone somewhere beat him to hit, Structural Defect deserves credit for the first U.K. sighting of Classics at mass retail/non specialty shop.
But... But... It's still 2006. What gives?
Damn them. Now what am I supposed to be cynical about?
*wanders off, wondering why the 4th of July, 2007 is niggling him*
To Argos we fly!
What happened, not only are they are out but they're actually cheaper then expected!
£17.99 for Optimus Prime (RRP £19.99, Link)
£12.99 for Rodimus, Starscream (RRP £14.99 each, LINK and LINK).
Lol - Paid just under that (about 50p less a figure) for imports a month ago. (Although that was from Epicheroes. I'm getting wave 2/3 from BBTS, which will cost a little more with the import duty)
Argos has a Transformers sale, most stuff is on discount.
Got them! I'll edit and add a receipt once I get the scanner working again!
they're still down as cybertron rather than classics as you can see, but out of the four the store had all of them were classics so I'd imagine they'll be pretty widespread, maybe they're doing a direct swap to them.
Yes got prime in Argos, what an awesome figure, I need more, where is megatron!!!
Just nabbed both Classics Prime AND Megoatron from Argos in Stevenage - will sort out pix once my mobile phone has finished charging!!
Definately just the voyagers at Argos yeh?
Play are sending me them after I preordered them a while back. Can't wait!
Just need to get Rodimus, Astrotrain and Screamer now. (Bought Bumblebee in A1 Comics the other week)
Was in A1 yesterday and was suprised to see just Bumblebee. He was the one I had most difficulty getting cheap anywhere.
Well, as promised, please find some very grainy pix attached of my marvellous finds at Argos today!!
I may have to look for these tomorrow. I really need cheering up at the moment.
