    Whoops, meant to say Tarn's faceplate. I'll find a body to stick him on, and kerboom. Cheaper than £110, for sure.

    Sadly no restocks of the TR Wave 2 Deluxes into The Entertainer in Bristol, still with the same stock they've had for last six or so months.

    And after the brief on the shelf appearance of Transformers into Portishead via Sainsburys, looks like they've now given up as there is absolutely no TF's at all now. They did however redeem themselves with offering Event Horizon on Blu ray for £5.00!

    Two RID Warrior Screamers in MK TRU with 25% off- so £14.99. They're by the entrance not with the other Transformers.

    Had to go to Lincoln yesterday for a hospital appointment (on a Saturday?!). Couldn't get to all the stores as I ran out of time, but did manage to get to TrU. Found NuRiD Starscream (they had two, I nearly had a heart attack!) but no Paralon. However, I did find this:
    [​IMG]

    Did we know about this one? He's pictured on the bottom of Starscream's box along with Paralon, but I can't remember seeing him here. I found him at the back of some old Construct-Bots Prive Vs. Megs sets. I don't know if he just fell off the peg (likely) or if someone had hidden him, but he came home with me! :D  He has the £19.99 sticker on the bottom of the box but rang up at £14.99. Is he another TrU exclusive figure?

    They had all three Dickie Prime-with-trailer die-casts too, but I only took the "Roll Out" one; hope to get the others when they're on offer.

    Also found the TF mag in Tesco. This month there's a Grimlock grabber! Was going to pass, but then had a moment of nostalgia for those grabby things on a stick I had as a kid (I had a shark!) and caved. He's really good fun! :lol 

    Otherwise, no TF sightings, but if anyone collects the DW Time Squad figures they're £1.49 each in Poundstretcher.

    Yeah, he is in the same wave, but that wave is a TrU exclusive and I don't recall anyone else posting that they'd seen PS Prime in stores. There was also a regular Prime there; same mould but the more familiar red and blue rather than this white and blue version.

    I hadn't noticed until you said it, but yeah, he really is!

    Edit: Bloody buggering hell! Just opened my Starscream and his legs are wobbly as all get-out! Anyone else's Screamer like this? Lincoln only had two yesterday (one after the one I bought) so not sure if I should bother taking him back?

    Anyone got the skinny on the current stock in Orbital and Forbidden Planet? I'll be in The Smoke tomorrow and thought I'd pop in having dodged shelling out on TR Soundwave and the reduced CW Skywarp today.

    Hucknall Tesco also have the RID one-step box set in.

    Also informed that Newark Asda also has the cardboard RID display. Yes folks, hell has officially frozen over - NEWARK ASDA HAS TFs!

    Picked up a mp sunstorm at the weekend thanks to we_are_forest. Saw some of the titans stuff, they look good but I find the hollow forearms and legs too distracting. I understand it aids the transformation and keeps, already ridiculous, costs down but I think it really hurts the aesthetic. Now I just need a legal way to make spending money for mp's and 3rd parties.
