    ...oh fucking SWEET. Thanks for the heads up on the toys d00d!
    However... £39.99 for the Leaders. To be expected, but GOD DAMN. I'll be getting them in the US for about half that, I think.

    Oh I love the mistransformations and wrong pictures. Deluxes have LOC Jazz and then Voyagers have Deluxe Jazz.

    Check out Jazz's arms:

    It's very common, especially with Argos, for them to use proto pics; I remember when they had BM Deluxe Jetstorm in there; all the blue chrome was silver.
    Oh look; Ratchet's mistransformed too, in alt mode (look at the rear fender). And his robot mode pic is flipped.

    Wa hay! More sending the assistants back and forth saying, "No, that isn't the one I want!!!".
    It's tempting, but I think I'll wait until I see them on the shelf in Woolies. My local Argos is a depressing place...

    I quite like the cover to the UK 'comic'. Guess we're stuck with the kiddie graphics so I may as well get used to them.

    You want me to pick you anything up in the US Red? I might be able to fit a couple in my case.

    You're a gentleman!
    Seriously, that's a cool offer (I love this place!!!) but I'm sure you'll be weighted down with your own stuff? :thumb  :mail

    I'll be quite (pleasantly) surprised if the Leader assortment' contains anything other than Prime.

    They're on offer in Argos at the minute. No one in store seems sure what the offer is, but looks like "buy 2 save £5". I just picked up Voyager Blackout, Voyager Ratchet, Deluxe Protoform Prime and Optimash Prime for £49.96.

    Optimash s for my 4 year old. Honest...

    Wow, that's unexpected... A new Transformers line almost at the same time as the US, that can't be right, though I guess this means I can kiss goodbye to any hope of classics wave #2 deluxes seeing release in proper brick and mortar stores.

    Leeds Argos have them in stock but I'm stuck in work ARRGGH

    20 Mins to go
    MUST BUY TRANSFORMERS

    Also... major shock having these in the UK so soon, We're still waiting for most of the classics line to come out!

    Just tell them it's for your 4 year old, that's what FatMick Prime did!!! ;)

    Oh wow!

    I picked up a lovely Voyager and the Legends 4 pack... I'm so excited I can't open them, I never thought I'd see them until July.... I think I'm finally psyched.

    They are doing some deal alright, I got the Legends for Half Price.

    Can't wait to find Jazz. That mistransformation is interesting, he looks taller than normal? I think I'll play around some more.

    Are the Deluxes out yet though? When I was there they had Starscream, but I'm not that interested in him.

    Problem with this stuff is that when Argos gets stuff in, they very often only get it in once and not again. Meaning we may never see the Deluxes in there, which is a shame. Argos are a bit dumb like that, but they skimped out on Spider-Man 3 stuff as well.
