    Anyone know what kind of stuff is left in The Entertainer these days? Any PotP legends or stuff like that?

    My nearest two branches both appear to have been cleared out of what POTP Legends they got in and still have a shedload of Seasprays & Cosmii.

    Ah well, I have a yearning to get a new TF to take into the screening of Bumblebee I’m going to see tomorrow but can’t think of anything I especially want from Smyths.

    Out -of-town Clacton Home Bargains had a few Chaos boxes in, Not sure I would see this as a nationwide re-stock as they were notable at the start of the hunt for not having any at all and this could just be a box they found in the storeroom, they had one on the shelf yesterday.

    The Entertainer Northampton had the worst selection of Transformers I have seen in the modern era of collecting. Few ultimate class Cyberverse things, few one steps, few TLK legions. Just awful.

    Southampton Forbidden Planet continues it's move to being a Funko Pop only zone... TF wise, some POTP: Dreadwind, Snarl, Outback and Cindersaur stick in the mind. There were also send me Studio Series figures but I've already forgotten what they were. Now I'm in my late 30s my memory is starting to fail

    Sounds about right for "THE Toy Shop", a travesty of TF stock is starting to seem like company policy!

    I’ve been trying across 6 different branches within a 40mile radius since they were first spotted and had managers chase around and was told the northern warehouse had sold out, fingers crossed they get more.
    How many were there as think it’s 3per case?

    Took one off them for a mate,
    but not actually sure it that left one or two, I suspect one.
    have told my local TF mates around there too so make sure you ring ahead before you do any kind of endeavor.

    Hi! New forum member here, getting back into transformers after a very long time and have some hopefully useful information:

    Toymaster & its ‘spinoffs’; Toy Barnhaus etc. Are currently selling studio series deluxe wave 1 figures for £14.99. Finally persuaded me to pick one up. Crawley Toy Barnhaus had plenty of Ratchet, Crowbar and Stinger, I nabbed the last bumblebee. Croydon had tons of each though.

    I love going to Leicester vintage. A couple of weeks ago they made me a cup of tea cos they could see I was frozen. I don't often buy owt, but that's because I am sadly both skint and tight. I did get a near complete motormaster a while ago to complete my stunticons tho.
