    Ipswich entertainer had legends bombshell, wreck gar and shockwave in the penny sale. Tk maxx had 2 cw cyclonuseseses and a Hotspot for a tenner each. B+M had Onslaught and Scattorshot and pipes, Buzzsaw, Chopshop and shockwave. No price, but the guy filling the shelf seemed quite interested in the legends.

    If anyone else pre-ordered Titans return Sixshot from Kapow I've received an email today saying mine has been shipped. so excited I may have pee'd a little! Although that could be a separate medical issue....

    Which B&M? West side of town (nr TRU), or east side?

    EDIT: Or the third one that appears to be on the town centre now? (Blimey, that's a lot of B&Ms for one small town!)

    TRU Old Kent Road has had a restock of TR Wave 3 Deluxes, a couple left of all of them when I popped in lunchtime, even Getaway but they are back up to £16.99 (Boo!) they aren't in the usual Action Figure aisle they are in one of the novelty aisles by the entrance. A couple of TR Soundwaves (back up to £50) and that's your lot. Unusual for this usually awful TRU to get restocks of "hot" current items.

    Nothing CW or TR shaped in either the B&M or Tescos at Dunton Road.

    Sainsburys I've given up on lately, they aren't even trying.

    the one in town which used to be a 99p shop, and before that a QD. Or maybe it was the other way round? :lol

    I wouldn't say Sainsburys aren't trying, I recently picked up all 4 Bruticus limbs for £11.33 a pop, which was nice.

    Haha I saw this and was grumbling to myself "damn it, should have gone with Kapow over In Demand toys" and then checked my email on a different matter and had an update from ID toys saying my Six Shot had been posted haha :D  this will make me happy when I get it in hand over the fact that there are still no TR Deluxe wave 3 in Warrington Toys R Us (Unless anyone spotted some since I last checked on Monday) They definitely had a delivery as every isle but the transformers one had boxes piled up ready to be put out.

    Anyone going this 'for the love of sci fi' convention near the Trafford Centre over the weekend? Hoping for some potential goodies (last years Star Wars one they did I got Transmetal Tarantulas and a few other bits)

    Will say hey if I see you there then. Last year there was a really cool stall (where I got my Tarantulas from) that had a bunch of different pre-owned figures in a few different boxes so hopefully at least that vendor will be back.

    Found this RID MiniCon four-pack in Great Yarmouth TK Maxx for £9.99. Is that new for the UK?

    Somebody in here mentioned wanting a Swelter MiniCon not that long ago. This is the Blizzard Strike version, but it might suffice.

    Even the TRU at Colliers Wood - officially the smallest and most useless TRU that actually has shelving in the UK - had a couple of Wave 3 Deluxes left this afternoon.

    Sod all in the Savacentre Sainsburys and only Chromedome and Highbrow at £13.33 in the Wimbledon Entretainer.
