    Asda Living Wrexham had TLK Deluxe wave 2 today for a "bargain" £17. Not sure if Slug & Steelbane and have been sighted in the UK supermarkets yet?

    So anyone after them, fill your boots!

    Saw them in Gravesend Asda this day too, along with wave 3 one steps. Not much else though.

    A standee of TLK stuff (couldn't be bothered to see what was in it) has appeared at Andover Asda, opposite the Pharmacy (which is probably where you'll need to go after you've looked at the prices). Otherwise, the only TF-fare is the Bludgeon wave of RID warriors at full price.

    dunno if others have seen these, but I spotted RID Scorponok for £8.99 in TK MAXX at lunch - literally the only TF in sight, but interesting nonetheless...

    not doubting that, but could also mean the likelyhood of more RID turning up there... plus the price is much more palatable than the £18 or so TRU tried to charge for it...

    I spotted Warrior Thunderhoof in the Warrington TK Max the other day so there are other warrior figures in those stores.

    RID Bludgeon and his wave mates still in TRU Old Kent Road.

    Are the Warriors slightly larger RID Toys because there was a larger than Deluxe Thunderhoof in the open box-front packaging in the same TRU?

    The Warriors *ARE* the deluxe size.

    I suspect you saw the 3 step version of Thunderhoof or more likely his repaint?

    Just thought I'd point this out in case someone ever notices it and the question pops up:

    The Reveal the Shield figures (Tiny Turbo Changers 3-pack with exclusive Steelbane, 1-Step Turbo Changer 6-pack, DOTM Voyager Optimus Prime redeco) were released as Argos exclusives in the UK months ago. In the US, the 3-pack and the 6-pack were Target exclusives, and the Voyager was said to be as well... but then ended up as a TRU exclusive instead.

    The weirdest part, though, is that the TRU US release is lacking the "Reveal the Shield" logo in the lower left corner of the packaging which the Argos version has:
    Reveal_The_Shield_Voyager_Class-Optimus_Prime_packaging_EU.jpg Reveal_The_Shield_Voyager_Class-Optimus_Prime_packaging_US.jpg

    Voyager Prime was also released in Asia in the same packaging as the US TRU release (i.e. lacking the "Reveal the Shield" logo), just minus the TRU sticker.

    Hope those Smyth listings mean we'll also be getting Voyager Scorn at some point. That'll be my last TLK purchase.

    That looks like the Dicke Toys light up cars that are normally £3 RRP on their own. They're defo diecast.

    speaking of dickie toys, found these in my local tesco, metal figures and vehicles of Last Knight bots. Wasn't aware they made these so don't know if it's a new sighting or not. (they're not on Dickie's own website?)

    If anyone's actually interested in these I can go back and get better quality pics of the whole range
