    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.

    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*

    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)

    Got them! I'll edit and add a receipt once I get the scanner working again!

    **edit**

    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.

    Was in A1 yesterday and was suprised to see just Bumblebee. He was the one I had most difficulty getting cheap anywhere.
