    This is second hand information for now but the new Argos catalogue came out today and though I forgot about it myself Scourge 151 texted me and let me know that it has the following new treasures;

    Classics Jetfire
    Titanium Optimus (6" WW)
    85 movie deco 20th Prime (blue gun, no damage, has the talking base)

    He also confirmed that Alt Ravage is an Argos exclusive so well done to them and thanks to Scourge 151. : thumb

    He didn't give me the codes and such but you can find out for yourself when you go there tomorrow. :p

    Cool, when I take back Crotchwave tomorrow, I'll see if I can bag WW Prime.

    Also, how much is Jetfire?

    ta daa!
    Ah good the cat numbers came up alright! Best part of this is you'll probably be able to pick up the entire classics line just from Argos, do take note that for the voyagers, legends value pack and 20th Op you'll have to go to an Argos Extra store.
    I'll have a look tomorrow to see if I can get some deluxes, got Jetfire, Prime and Megs and the 2-pack already.
    Oh and if it hadn't been confirmed before the 2 pack definitely DOES have the DVD in it.

    Also there is a PS3 preorder page near the back :)

    Sweet. The photo doesn't mean that Jetfire will be there from the start, though. It's marked as an 'assortment'.

    Probably not for a long while, though I suppose they wouldn't need to change anything listed there...

    If anyone's after 20th Optimus, try TRU.

    They did have classics Optimus and Megatron in before Christmas so who knows, I won't be the only one going for a check tomorrow so I guess we'll find out soon enough!

    :lol , I just got Jetfire from an eBay seller and for £5 more. Still, I would've used that £5 on petrol getting to Argos.

    Funny that they have Bionicles right under the Transformers.
    Some people complain that the movie designs look like Bionicles.

    Not sure if this is what you're referring to but the "Exclusive to Argos" comment is only for the UK man. ;)

    He may never find it at US retail though...

    As soon as someone spots Jetfire, be sure to let us know. Same goes for Grimlock too. Those are the only two I need now.
