    Went back to Brent X TRU, hoping to score the rest of the Legends of Cybertron (is that the name, its either Heroes or Legends, canna remember) and Prime and Hotshot were there as well now!

    So I guess all 4 of the 1st wave are about.

    Bought the only Downshift in Redditch Sainsburys today. Brilliant figure.

    They'd also got the wave 1 basics and Defense Hot Shot.

    Heading out to London on tuesday, so I'll be checking Hamleys.
    Also, may be going to Sainsbury's today for the weeks food shopping, so I may tag along and Grab Downshift.

    Hamleys in London had
    Dark Skorponok: £30, they had about eight shelves worth!
    Supreme Starscream: £70, and they had two shelves of them.

    But I was chatting with the guy stocking the transformers shelves, who, as luck whould have it, is also a Transformers fan, who told me, anytime soon they are getting new shipments of new (to the U.K) cybertron stuff, some of the names he mentioned were, Metroplex, Primus, Override, Galvatron and Megatron
    and a load more.

    They also had in the display case,
    Dark Skorponok, Ransack, Scattorshot, Overhaul, Snarl, and a horribly mis-transformed Sideways.

    ?????? The staff of TFauctions were apparently told by Hasbro UK that they won't be offering Galvatron.

    Well, its not exactly reliable, I mean, he also mentioned the Starscream vs Vector Prime 2 pack.

    Yay, Clocker, Hardtop and the recon team,
    Now I just have to decide which one to get, and I think It'll be Clocker.

    Wrong choice.

    Clocker's repaint - Swerve - is a far superior toy in the colour scheme dept. Similarly Swindle is a decent repaint of Hardtop. Go fo the Minicons.

    Glad I eBayed my GF set when I did !

    Kettering Tesco's has restocked on their Cybertron Wave 1 scouts.
    Although these were previously marked 'discontinued'

    Oxford TRU has got a fresh case of Recon Minicons, Clockers and Hardtopds. They've also got Mudflap and more Dark Scorponoks than anyone'll ever want.

    I also saw Clocker, Hardtop and the Recon Team at Fenwicks, Brent Cross, together with a few Legends of Cybertron figures. Needed new Hardtop - broke shoulder joint of previous one. Take care with this model!

    Also got Energon Powerlinx Bulkhead in Brent Cross TRU. Plenty more there.

    Found Armada Powerlinx Hot Shot in The Entertainer, Amersham. Last one, I believe. £5. Lovely red colour, limited articulation.

    Found Armada Air Razor in The Entertainer, Uxbridge. £5. A rare female-style figure, very dark colours.
