    Was in woolworths earlier today and I picked up their new 'Big Red Book' which shows all the transformers they plan to stock this summer. Including the Classics Ultra Magnus and Sky warp Twin Pack for only £14.99.

    Also the movie is apparently out in the UK on 27th July?!?

    Other mistakes include the Wrong images for UM and Skywarp and the Classic Voyager figures apparently have light and sound.

    I don't think the person who designed this page has ever heard of a transformer!

    The Magnus Skywarp pics are pretty funny. :D 
    And great news! I may just become a completist if I get these two and go after Cliffjumper.

    Unfortunately, this is true.

    July is still the Summer. It's actually closer to the school holidays so I think perhaps that was the intention. Still, I'll get what I want of the toys and go and see the Movie while I'm in the US for Botcon.

    I think they are doing the same as argos and just giving a general description for any Transformer of that class, and then just selling what they can get their hands on.
    So far they have only had in store Alternators... Swindle, Dead End, SilverStreak & ShockBlast and Classics BumbleBee.

    P.s. I'll try do a better scan tonight at home. Had to use my works scanner which is designed for Maps upto 40" wide.

    Have Hasbro UK finally realised that there is a market for TF over here? Not that I'd bet my last penny on it, but...

    And Alt. Sunstreaker without having to import - yoink! :D

    Actually they have *every* clue, because that is indeed the classic Ultra Magnus and Skywarp that they're showing. So you can't fault 'em for not knowing their stuff. ;-)

    And, yeah - general "BOO!" on the whole getting-the-movie-three-weeks later front. Although I did predict that ages ago. (As did everyone who lives on this wretched little island, I think.) And to think that I thought that non-worldwide release dates died with the release of Fellowship of the Ring... Heigh ho...

    Man, I don't know why people are complaining about Classics Ultra Magnus being a white Optimus... that looks like the armored UM to me!

    ;)

    cool about the alternators (seeing how they showed what they had last time we might actually get sunstreeker and richochet)

    i know about the movie coming out nearly a month after the US as well as it being the last place in the world to get it

    which is ghey

    UM Vs Skywarp for that price is worth it. Just. Good work, Woolies.

    Nice, I like all the false advertising, especially with Ultra Magnus.
