    My local Smyths have done what they do best, waited for ages with nothing on the shelves and then restocked things that are two months old.

    Shelves are now full of dinobots, moonracers and boackwings that’ll probably shelfwarm now that everyone’s bought them elsewhere. They did the same with TLK scorn and nitro Zeus.

    No sign of any new Siege stuff unfortunately.

    Will be visiting Edinburgh Smyths in a few hours and expect it to be the same. However the Zeus' didn't shelf-warm, as plenty of us hadn't paid the import prices for him.

    They're always friendly there. I was in last week and finally bought a loose G1 Grimlock after just going in to look at it (well, and the rest of the magnificent displays) on and off for the best part of six months.

    Morrisons in Wednesbury has a good selection of Cyberverse Scout class figures .
    I know these halfformers are not everybodys cup of tea but I really like the robot modes .

    Picked up Slipstream but Windblade looked very nice too .

    Found the whole of wave one (minus the leaders) in toy barnhaus in Redhill so uk stock is definitely available.
    Will probably appear in force after toy fair.

    How much were the voyagers? I know the deluxes are £14.99 at the moment

    Even though they’re not online, always check in store for Entertainer. Last week they said Crawley didn’t have any, and that only Starscream could be ordered in, but they had all wave 1 apart from bumblebee and ratchet when I went

    Hope springs eternal that Smyths will get Siege deluxes in, their website lists them at least, but alas out of stock everywhere.
