    Colchester Tesco - Nothing
    Now really annoyed that I didn't go to Pitsea Tesco when I drove past it this morning.

    Well, that saves me a wasted journey, I'll check in the Clacton one after work tomorrow. They have to have something to fill up those empty shelves surely?


    Oh, who am I kidding!

    Have you seen the state of Clacton's toy section recently? It depresses me remembering the RotF to Prime days when the shelves were absolutely bursting with Transformers.

    I think the most stupid thing is that they got in two boxes of tiny turbo changers, sold one lot for £3 each, hit a sales slump, reduced to a pound each, sold all but five of them, then put the price back up to £3. Don't think they'll be getting series two any time soon...

    Does anyone know if or when TLK Legion class wave 2 will be released?

    I sent an email to Hasbro UK about Trypticon's hips a few weeks ago. They said they would have to pass it higher up and get back to me. I received a response today. The official statement reads: "We have been advised that there should be no issues with this item."

    Considering all the reports so far I find that hard to believe and they also acknowledged the problem at SDCC.

    I suspect this should be filed under "Hasbro UK don't know jack"

    Surprise, surprise, Tesco Clacton had new transformers in! A handful of TLK wave one legions, and a new lot of tiny turbo changers, all series one. No new RID :(

    I went to Tollgate Colchester Smyths on the way home and took the only Thermidor at the sickening price of £17.99 but at least i've got him now. There was one Bludgeon left and about six Puff The Tragic Dragon left.

    If anyone in the St Helens area wants Tripty Smyths on the retail park have just the one. I say if you want trypticon in a box that has been dropped from a plane as is it passed over Widnes, kicked all the way down the bypass then punched into a shelf space half its size to make it fit then St Helens is the branch for you! Still I got the last Computron there which had a squished corner and took the 5% discount the manager offered...

    Ugh. Didn't go to Pitsea Tesco fast enough, so managed to snag Bludgeon but missed out on Thermidor. Hope to catch him either there next time or if he shows up at my local Smyths for double the price... :(

    Beaumont Leys Leicester Tesco has Bludge/Therm/Twinf on the shelves. £10 is proper good value too, it's the sort of price we paid for deluxes 15 years ago.

    I like the new head on Therm, but it's a shame the arms and legs are silver rather than the pale blue on the stock photo on the back.

    Glad I did:

    100_4065.JPG

    (Dunno what happened to the front on shot)

    Proves the benefit of going back to stores and going regularly.

    From 0 to 8, so that's almost certainly a full case.

    Four repacks - Op, Strongarm, BB, Grimlock

    100_4066.JPG

    Four new toys: 2 Twinferno, 1 Thermidor, 1 Bludgeon

    100_4067.JPG

    I can see the logic, Twinferno is the new mould here and Thermidor & Bludgeon are repaints ...... but instinct says those two are going to be more popular just cos Bludgeon is Bludgeon and we didn't get Bisk.

    Bludgeon's orange is a bit pale and the re should be burgundy, almost brown but apart from that it's near perfect.

    How hard can it be to get a child on the spectrum to smile happily with a photo so people can know he's pleased with his toys?

    VERY.

    No Thermidor or Twinferno in Reading Tescos (Napier Rd).

    Finally found TR Legends Brawn at TRU. They also have TLK Leaders and TR Deluxe wave 4.

    Also noticed those bouncing ball heads figures in those £1 machines near the exit. Took a pic but Photobucket isn't letting me upload to this site.

    This is what they look like though for those who haven't heard of them before.

    Tescos New Malden also had the Brawn Legends wave (4) for £11

    I skipped Roehampton ASDA this morning but a friend tells me by text he's found £6 Legends wave 4 in his!
