    Speke Smyths have apparently opened up a box of wave 4 (I think?) POTY Deluxes. The had a couple of Snarles and a Moonracer on the pegs. I grabbed Moonracer, partly because her colour scheme is nice. They've also had a bit of a rearrangement but I can't tell if that's in anticipation of Siege or just general Christmas chaos.

    I think Hamleys must have gotten the Wave 2 revision case then, as they had all bar Rippersnapper. Also SS wave 1 minus Prime. London Forbidden Planet had all of wave 2, SS wave 3 minus Bumblebee, PotP legends wave 3 and a couple other things.

    Oh yeah, Smyths Speke also had Darkwing in so I'd say it's definitely that case.

    Toy Barnhaus/Toymaster in the St. Nicholas Centre Sutton, Surrey seem to have pulled up some stock from storage or something. They had a single Twinferno (on discount) and Blackwing each which I snapped up but also had one Sludge and (I think) just one Moonracer. They also had various Bumblebee movie toys and other lines but I didn't pay much attention to those.

    Blackwing, Sludge and Moonracer sound like another sighting of the w2r1 POTP deluxe case as mentioned higher up the page!

    If anyone can tell me why the open swipe on my ipad would not work this morning when I wanted to take a photo in Bentalls, Kingston, then I would be most grateful!

    What I was trying to snap were the wave 3 Primemasters: Bludgeon, Octopunch & Bomb-burst, which I don't recall being spotted before.

    Without a photo it's hard to be sure if FP has imported stock or not but the balance of probability is they're probably euro ones given I've seen them and a friend says his coop had them this morning

    My Siege figures arrived from In Demand Toys and it is definitely European stock. So don't be surprised if retailers start getting stuff soon. [​IMG]

    Quick heads up, Smyths website is now showing listings for Siege Megatron and Optimus. They’re not available to buy yet but worth keeping an eye on over the next few days possibly.

    So that'd be about £90 shipped, or around 100 Euros, which would be what buying the two on Bay from the US amount to even before those crazy overpriced US shipping costs.

    Would any of you nice British gentlemen be willing to help out a EU citizen with getting Soundwave and the Cassette Pack? :) 

    I'll be able to PayPal the money next week.

    Looks like Siege is on the horizon - listings for Optimus & Megatron have popped up on Smyth's for £23.99.

    No online or in-store stock yet though.
