    £7 each for the One Steps, not a bad price.

    Titan Changer Bumblebee Shatter & Optimus Prime found in B&M Bargains
    [​IMG]
    Only price on shelf is for the previous Titan Changers from RID. (£9.99) doesn't read if you use the B&M Barcode App.
    Damn you beat me.

    Curious. I think this is the first time B&M have carried new TF stock and not older imported lines. I noticed that now do a large branded Lego section too in the Home branches which must be a change of policy. Bodes well.

    Yeah my local B&M has the Bee Movie titan Changers too - i'd be interested to see a review of the Decepticons if somone buys them (I take it you can't buy them as they won't scan ?)

    There seems to be a problem with ordering Big Powered on Kapow. Orders over £100 have free shipping, but if I select the 10% deposit then I still get a shipping fee at checkout. Is anyone else having this problem? Should I simply forgo the deposit?

    IIRC the full amount including that postage will be deducted from the Cost on your Full Payment Invoice.

    yeah, exactly this - you pay a postage on the deposit, but then that subtotal comes off the final balance for payment- from what I understand, it's just a quirk of how their ordering system works..

    @Fort Max I checked out Orbital Comics today. Didn't pick anything up, but thanks for the tip all the same.

    Half worth mentioning that the Transformers Bumblebee Greatest Hits Soundwave and cassette pack at Argos are down from £54.99 and £31.99 to £39.99 and £28.99 respectively.

    Matters not, because they still aren't in stock anywhere or available for home delivery, but at least points at them getting back down to that price whenever they do become available.

    I just picked up the dropship and the other three vehicles they had in the store as an early Christmas present from me mum. Including the vehicle I bought yesterday that's quite a chunk of fun for just £45 total. The box for the dropship is pretty big and the actual ship inside is bigger than that when assembled and then the pop-out wings activated. Not often these days you buy a toy and it actually fills the box it comes in (Lego and TF, I'm looking at you).
    The mechanisms in a few of the smaller vehicles are a bit iffy, but they're still fun enough. Hopefully Home Bargains will get in the other vehicles they didn't have this time. I really want that space ship that looks like a cross between an X-Wing and the Milano.
    This is the kind of thing Hasbro should be putting out, but with Legion TF cars instead of the mini cars. This dropship will make a fun playset for TF.
    That kind of thing really bugs me. It's bad enough when they never actually get stock of something in, but then to discount it is just rubbing salt into the wound.

    So what you're saying is we need to stick some wee magnets in/on our Siege Micromasters, yeah?
    I'm kidding I think Siege MMs will be a bit too big at Decoy Suit size, innit? It'd have to be vintage MMs. :p

    I'd just like to point out that yes, this is indeed European packaging!

    Meanwhile, Amazon has finally fixed the images for Studio Series wave 3 Deluxe Bumblebee:

    Still no sign of DOTM Ratchet or Shadow Raider.
