    Thanks, Phil, but Oof! Not exactly unexpected but still Oof! A tenner on top of a straight rub-out-the-dollar-sign-add-a-pound-sign conversion rate?! Bloody typical.

    My Robotkingdom one was pennys short of £40 at 3am with the additional risk of HMRC's Red Hot Poker up my backside when it arrives.

    So yeah, not that bad.

    I know, I know but in my heart of hearts I was hoping for a sub £30 price tag.

    Is it just me, or are customs tightening up? I used to get stung occasionally, but now it's literally every item marked over $20

    I bring a lot less in than I used to, use Kapow and IDToys for anything of any remote value now if I can.

    If anything I've found I've got more past them in the last year. E-Hobby Magna Convoy was a major victory!

    Hucknall Tesco, as of last night, has what seemed like a bazillion one-step TLK Megatron figures (A solid facing of them).

    Seems as though this guy will shelf/peg warm for some time.

    Was in toyland Harrogate today and noticed they had legions TLK Megatron and 1 of dragonstorm, they both looked good but at £8.99 each I wasn’t paying that for the first time ever. I took a pic if it’s a new sighting? The rest of wave was just prime Bee and grimlock.

    Went to sainsburys as well, found Drift, crosshairs and megatron legions in there too with Bee, prime and grim but again at £9 I cant justify that on a legion size when the same molds were £4 in asda during rotf years

    TRU Old Kent Road had all the same tat I reported last week BUT did have a single RID Bludgeon, Thermidor and Twinferno if anyone needs those elusive Buggers - £17.99 each which is £4 more than I paid two weeks ago.

    Typical. I just bought Megs and Op a couple of weeks ago from elsewhere. That said, the Tescos here has NEVER had ANY TR stock as far as I'm aware so I doubt I could've made use of that discount information anyway.

    It's looking like £9 might end up being the new Legion price. Sorry, shops. I could just about live with £7 a pop if I REAAALLY wanted a particular Legion figure, but at £9? Go suck one. If I want to spend nine quid on plastic crack then I'll go buy a Lego starter set instead since it's waaay better value for money by comparison.

    The Last Knight Deluxe wave 4 Cogman at Amazon UK, not available yet:
    Cogman

    Oddly, the Amazon Germany listings for wave 3 Bumblebee, Crosshairs and Strafe don't work at Amazon UK yet.

    Fair enough. TF stock around my area is so appalling that I'm just surprised when anything new crops up in a shop here.

    I've lost the will to get excited at (or even much remember) sightings and new product reveals because there's a good 95% chance I will never encounter any of that stuff in stores here.
