    Aside from the aforementioned Sixshot, would anyone be able to get me a Skyshadow at £15? Again, will pay postage.

    Still no POTP Legends in Wandsworth or Wimbledon Entertainers. Huh.

    Went in the Old Kent Road TRU and aside from the stench of death there was very little in there unless you need a singular Broadside or Brawn/Roadburn/Cosmos. And the usual Film Shit.

    Sad scenes, they've removed all the Lego from the back and aisles are beginning to lose other Brand Toys for generics and cheapie-stuff. Still chock full of Barbie stuff though so I'm assuming Mattel aren't fussed about having it back.

    We could do a sweepstake on what the last TF Toy will be on the pegs come closing day. I'd go either Film Grimlock or that RiD Menasor-y thing.

    Sad stuff, Mr. Thing, for sure. Does anyone know if the staff are being kept on to the bitter end, or if they too are being whittled down alongside the stock? Not sure what would be worse for them, tbh. They have my sympathy, either way.

    Regarding the last TF standing, good shout on movie Grimlock. I think I would go for one of those crappy movie figures with the daft battle mask feature that always seem to be hideously over-priced, or possibly another of the many, many unappealling movie figures aimed at the very young/ill informed gift buyer.

    Oh, and I had my shipping notice for LG Slugslinger from Kapow today. Might be worth a polite enquiry if you haven't had yours yet.

    I remember seeing a few weeks ago someone saw some cheap ko figures in a pound shop somewhere and that the weapons were pretty good for potp dinobots. Which shop was it?

    Ive gone and lost the gun for slug and want him to have a weapon

    Poundland, mate, and quick about it! My local only has three of the £5 massive fellas left, and I doubt we'll see a restock of the wee £1 bots outside of Xmas season. They're called "Galaxy Shifters".

    Can confirm that Sky Shadow rings through at £14.99 in B&M despite being placed with Skywarp who’s still £24.99 - took one to a till for a price check and as soon as the guy said £15 I bit his hand off!! Only 2 on the shelves of my local one though...

    Receipt shows same TransF/Leader Titan code.

    OK, if someone can keep an eye out for a Sky Shadow for me I'll reimburse for toy and postage!

    Score! Wimbledon Entertainer finally had the POTP Legends in, and they are now minus a Beachcomber and Slash. £11 a pop. Having now seen Windy's "challenging" looks in hand I'll leave Him till another day.

    Like when He is Tailgate.

    No Sky Shadows in Clacton B&M, just the same three CW leader Skywarps at £24.99 they've had since Christmas.

    The lovely staff in Bristol Forbidden Planet managed to get one of the 2 Windblades from the Southampton store over for me. I collected it this afternoon. So pleased to finally have a Windblade. Whoop whoop!
    Thanks for the tip off guys, this thread rocks!!!!!

    Cribbs Causeway TRU had a mini RID Twinferno for £8.
    Not seen him before on shelf. I was tempted, but alas... someone else can enjoy him.
    Nothing new on shelf otherwise.

    No Sky Shadows or anything new in B&M Cribbs Causeway either. Is it wrong to be relieved, having bought one for £35 at The Entertainer just before Xmas

    My final Amazon.com order came in the mail today, completing my Christmas transformers 'haul'. 13 in total, pretty happy! The only TR figures I still need are Trypticon and the wave 2 legends. 20180113_112727.jpg

    MK B&M has one Sky Shadow (one is under my arm) and two Sixshots. For now anyway, someone else is looking at them!
