    Kettering, Northamptonshire stocks SWTF's, Vader + Obiwan, plus, they are included in the 'buy 1 get 1 half price' sale on Star Wars Stuff, Toymaster in Kettering also stocks SWTF's, they had Grievous + Vader, almost bought Grievous, but decided I'll save my money.

    On another note, Cybertron wave 1 is out!!! (nah im just kidding)

    Yeah all the Argos price drops are promotional only. I'm not sure exactly when the sale ends but if it goes much past mothers day I'll be surprised.

    On a side note I've been keeping an eye on what stock we've had in Nottingham recently and theres no big surprises i'm afraid:

    Deluxe - Sideways and Snarl
    Voyager - Crumplezone and Vector Prime
    Ultra - Jetfire and Scourge (really need to pick him up before he goes!)
    Leader - Op Prime
    SWTF - Vader, Obi Wan and Grevious.

    SWTF seem to be selling pretty well as everywhere locals completely out and waiting for stock to come in, but the rest are doing average at best im afraid to say!

    So, no more Cybertron from Hasbro UK then, and a flood of SWTFs. :)

    Wow, the two surrounding counties, nowhere has any ultra's for sale, and I really would like to pick up Scourge.
    Same situation with Scouts, I would Like to get Scattorshot to go with my GF Backgild, for a 'Before + After' shot.
    Still, I'm going to E-mail HasbroUK tonight and ask them if wave 1 will see release soon, and if there are any news on anymore coming, or are they just going to screw us over and drop the line over here.

    I'd ask after the specific toys rather than Wave 1 as I doubt Hasbro will know what you're on about.

    The Argos in Greenmbridge, Swindon had an Ultra in stock yesterday but the queue was so huge I wasn't keen to hang around that long for a customer view to see if it was a Scourge. The main town store had nowt today. Argos' site will do you a store check on all items - type the code in, go to purchase, select the reserve option and it'll tell you which store has them near you.

    Mailed Argos to ask about how long the TF price reductions would last. They did reply, and within 24 hours, but it sounds like they and Hasbro have the same customer services devision:

    So probably not forever then

    TRU Manchester has the micromaster trains, Cybertron Overhaul, Scattorshot, Ransack, Vector Prime, Crumplezone and Starscream, and Energon Scorponok and Landmine (at full price). Might be checking out Argos to see if they have a Scourge

    My Argos has ultra's back in stock the first time, since the 21st March, and that was Jetfire ( My friend bought it), I have one on reserve, and Here's hoping it's Scourge.

    Well, I checked out the Ultra, It was Dark Skorponok, his Photo on the box makes him look real bad-ass, but still, I passed him in Energon, I'll pass him in cybertron.

    But thanks for the heads up!
