    Not sure about "With the Transformers Revenge of the Fallen toys due for release before the Autumn / Winter Argos catalogue is released (start of August), either they will not be stocking the line, or most likely the figures will replace the 25th Anniversary ones nearer the time." Argos usually just do inserts if new stuff comes out between catalogues.

    I had foolishly hoped they wouldnt up the gouging on Animated. Just leave it on Universe.

    It means that although there may be 4 or 5 different ones avaliable, you only get 1 for the price shown.

    and unless you go ask at the counter to check which ones they have in, you might get one you don't want. even though it may say there's five available to collect, they may only have two different ones in stock. thats how i got my 6" titanium soundwave because i didn't ask first to see what they had in. i wanted rodimus prime, they gave me soundwave.

    Yarp, customer views are your friend here, as are checking the amount they have in with the stock check machines, 7 or more mean you have a chance that they've more than 2 different figures on the shelves in the mystical stock cave.
    I may check a few to see if they've got the 5-pack in as that's a new code, may mean Inferno is hiding there too!

    OOOOH, the Legends 5-packs! Odd one to get excited about, I know, but it's about the only code that old stock can't just be moved over to, so it's the one that's most likely to actually be *IN*.

    I don't like Argos for shopping at. I kept coming away with a disappointed as week after week my local Argos didn't have the toy I wanted in.

    Yeah, the trick for buying at Argos is "wait until someone else tells you they found it there first".

    But if we all did that then we'd never know :) 

    but yeah it does suck going there, asking for a viewing then seeing stuff you don't want. However i haven't played argos roulette for a while now.

    Not nearly as much as it sucks for the staff having to lug all the unsold stock back to the stockroom.

    The only advantage is that it allows assortments to be updated without Argos having to issue codes for new toys.
