    Was in Warrington town centre today so took a better look at the 3rd Party Snarl in cash converters, its Toyworld Roar for £49.99, not my cup of tea but still cool to see, they still have that Dinosaur King Grimlock in there too for £24.99, so tempting but holding out that we get a set of classic Dinobots eventually.

    Entertainer: Nothing of much interest. B&M cockhedge: 2 CW Ironhide, couple of CW Legends and RID Minicons, Deployers. B&M Riverside: those large leader sized-ish CW Rook/Smokescreen, CW Onslaught and Scattorshot, RID Minicons. Asda Cockhedge: Nothing of much interest, no wave 2 combiner force warriors. Has anyone spotted these in the Warrington area?

    Not looking forward to Movie stuff taking up the shelves soon :(  not into movie stuff anymore, my taste sort of soured on them. However some of the dinobot voyagers look tempting (Damn it!) Mainly Steelbane and Scorn :p  maybe I could shoehorn them as old Knights of Cybertron, or Steelbane could be Onyx Prime...hmm I will have to hold strong and not cave in to my plastic addiction!

    Went in to our local Tesco on Tuesday night and the RID Warriors are now back up to £8.99 each, according to the label on the shelf. However, they didn't have any stock of them.

    Plus, the time/petrol money we spend searching for them, might as well just buy them where we see them for decent prices.

    This is true. Saw the £8.99 price last night, and did the same for my soundwave

    I was lucky that a few friends found them cheap for me - although I got Blurr for £8.99 (and his wheel came off)

    I just popped into my local smyths toy store at west one retail park and some of the last knight movie figures were already on display such as a solitary voyager optimus prime and grimlock for £33 each , voice changer optimus prime helmet and some 2-step changers of optimus and bumblebee for £25 each
    there was clearly room for a lot more figures which will be on shelf by Monday and since I couldn't wait until price drop I got voyager optimus and I will likely get berserker and barricade next week too

    Toys"R"Us is getting ready for the TLK launch next week, and they've already put up listings. I know it's not really important because wave 1 soon easy to find blah blah and also because ZOMG rip-off prices, but here you go:

    1-Step Turbo Changer Bumblebee
    1-Step Turbo Changer Autobot Hound
    1-Step Turbo Changer Barricade

    Legion Class Bumblebee
    Legion Class Grimlock
    Legion Class Barricade

    Knight Armor Turbo Changer Autobot Hound

    Legion Class figure (blank; possibly Autobot Drift, Crosshairs or Megatron)
    Legion Class figure (blank; possibly Autobot Drift, Crosshairs or Megatron)
    Legion Class figure (blank; possibly Autobot Drift, Crosshairs or Megatron)

    Premier Edition Deluxe Class Barricade
    Premier Edition Deluxe Class figure (blank; possibly wave 3 Bumblebee, Crosshairs or Strafe)
    Premier Edition Deluxe Class figure (blank; possibly wave 3 Bumblebee, Crosshairs or Strafe)
    Premier Edition Deluxe Class figure (blank; possibly wave 3 Bumblebee, Crosshairs or Strafe)

    There better have been some exotic birds in there!
    And by that I don't mean some overly made-up mature women from Chichester.

    Twice the size - but with less than half the poseability.
    I thank Armada for revitalising the toyline but I'll take more agility over size any day.

    TRU colliers Wood had..........Very little. A couple of Twinfernos at £12.99 some TM Wave 2s and a Legends Bumblebee at £12.49.

    The Savacentre Sainsburys across the road had Cyclonus and Hotspot at £12 to clear and one RID Wineglass at full price. Definite drought conditions.

    Sometimes Autocorrect gets it more right than we know. She looks the type.

    Smyths at Cribbs Causeway have the TLK figs up for sale already. Plenty of TR Primes and Megatrons at 18.99. CW Scattorshots reduced to a tenner. TR Highbrow at 14.99. Didn't get the chance to check Asda or TRU.
