    Swindon TRU had

    Mudflap, Leobreaker & Evac
    Backstop, Street Speed Minicons, Wreckloose & Brushguard - so we may have missed Clocker, Hardtop and the Recon team.

    Oh yeah, I forgot to mention, the TRU by Surrey Quays has the new Star Wars TFs out, Boba Fett, Darth Maul, Anakin Skywalker and Luke Skywalker.

    It totally slipped my mind!

    G1 Prowl Reissue spotted at Brent X TRU. Interstingly, the image on the inside of the cover features Skywarp, Autobot Tracks, Red Alert and 20th Aniversary Optimus Prime! With long smokestacks and battle damage paint.

    I guess that means we can expect him soon.

    Spotted in Edinburgh Toys R Us over the Easter weekend:
    Backstop, Wreckloose, Brushguard, Auto Minicon Team, Dirt Boss, Landmine, Evac, Mudflap, Leo Breaker, Dark Scorponok, Megatron and Super Starscream.

    They also had a few of the Arielbots and Constructicons micromasters, but I don't know how many of each.

    Also Tesco Extra at Corstorphine had a few Cyb Snarls but were cleared out of any Micromasters they had.

    Kettering Tru had 'buy 1 get 1 free' on all Energon Micromasters, but they'd sold out.

    Plus Snarl has either gone, or fallen off the shelf, there may be a new case arriving soon.

    Just been to Brent X TRU, spotted a lone Mudflap. He's not there anymore though.

    Tons of Evacs and Energon Bulkheads still. Guess Hasbro UK like their choppers.

    Edit
    Forgot, Reissue G1 Inferno was there too.

    Just a heads up to anyone with spare time this weekend or may-day, At Milton Keynes they hold a free-to-enter event called 'Collectormania',(see www.collectormania.com) and there is a guy who is always there selling large amounts of TF's, Japan reissues, E-Hobbys, exclusives, newer stuff, hordes of G1 Stuff, plus there are loads of other people selling TF stuff.

    So If you can make it down to Milton Keynes centre form this Saturday 29th of April to 1st May, come along, buy some stuff, chat to fellow fans or collectors.

    Snavej, I take it you bought the Cybertron - armada remolds from the same guy that I bought Alt. Ricochet from...who then put on display, after I was then £25 short, Cybertron Galvatron.

    Damnit, I would have gone without the alts if I could've gotten Galvy.


    Also, your Sky-Lynx, i take it that that was from
    'The Spacebridge's' stall?
    My friend bought one of his 'Brutici' (Plural of Bruticus)
    for £60.

    That truly was an awesome weekend.

    Collectormania - still manic

    I think you're right - the stall in the south-east corner. I almost walked right past it. You could pre-order that Galvatron at Toyzandgamez.com for £39.99 & postage.

    I've been keeping an eye on this thread in case anyone spotted 20th An. Prime in a Toys R Us yet - I noticed on the TRU site that its due in May but not in stock yet, so does anyone know what date it'll be available?

    And Forbidden Planet Newcastle has
    Kup and Wheelie reissue
    Yellow Ramble
    more BTR stuff than you can shake a stick at
    The Thundercracker/Skywarp Robotmasters two-pack

    All for the usual exorbitant prices.
