    We'd heard rumours of a blue version of the Leader Class Optimus being sighted in the UK - however, there might be some truth to them!

    The new Argos catalogue (out tomorrow, but they were handing them out outside my branch on my way home this evening) has Leader Nightwatch Optimus Prime and the Voyager Optimus + Concept Camaro Bumblebee listed as "only at Argos" items.

    The numbers are:

    370/6002 for the Two Pack
    370/2651 for Nightwatch Optimus

    The Two Pack has "available August" against it, no release date is given on Nightwatch Optimus.

    The catalogue also has the usual selection of Legends, Deluxes, Voyagers, Leaders - no FABs - both role play blasters, Blackout remote control helicopter, Nightlight to Flashlight transforming torches and the like.

    Well we know that it may be possible to get these items early if you just type the codes into the stock checkers instore, worth a try, I could sure use a bumblebee but I have Robovision OP already...

    2-pack is £24.99.

    Also, it may get overlooked as it's not in TF section, but Argos has the Transformers Death Star for £39.99. Available August.

    Crap no Argos store in New Zealand! Looks like I will have to pay the little bit extra and buy him off eBay.

    This all relates to the UK. As far as I know, the US one is a general release.
