yeah, I spoke to a Tesco's emloyee about that last night, and they said if you ring customer services when the Toy dpt people are working then you can talk to them to see if they have it in the warehouse.

TRU Brent X now has Voyagers, (Vector Prime, Crumplezone) and Leader Class Optimus Prime.

No sign of deluxes anywhere though... the only deluxes I've seen ANYWHERE are Sideways and Snarl in Tescos, where are they elsewhere? I'm really looking forward to scoring a Hotshot. ('Scoring'. I sound like a junkie...)

I hope they do release Wave 1 + 2 of deluxes soon, I'm getting fed up of seeing Snarl and Sideways when I own them both.

I don't think we're going to see them - Snarl and Sideways seem pretty widespread. They're Euro stock - different Earth Planet map - so know they're not some imports to fill the gap + they're solid cased, which is a Euro strategy for new toys. We've started late behind Europe and the last time that happened we missed toys too....

There was an unsubstantiated report of Hot Shot being sighted in an Argos over the last weekend. Deluxes aren't available in quite a few places where other Cybertron toys are,
so it may yet appear.

I really hope that's not the case, I mean, U.K fans (I'm guessing) are going to be mighty ticked if they can't get some of the main characters from season 1, Hotshot, Landmine, Red Alert, Thundercracker, Override, Not-really for Dirtboss, I mean, He just sort of dissapears in ep 17 and doesnt comeback, (well not yet anyways).

Yes but Hasbro UK are so used to ticking us off by now that i doubt they notice any more. TBH tho, most of those Deluxes, either Cybertron or GF version are available, at about the same price, from import stores or online sources in the UK anyway and (personal
opinion) Nitro Convoy/Override isn't the greatest mold but the paint job on the Hasbro version is pretty hideous compared to the Takara version.

So the next wave of Deluxes will be 8 X Dirtboss per case then.

Don't worry, I had no intention of getting Override, I only want her key, and 9.99 for a key, get real!

About 8 Dirtbosses a case, suits me, I (seeming to be a minority with all the hate Dirtboss get's) actually intend to get him, and 8 to a case, I can get one to keep as Dirtboss, one to either keep MiB or customize.

(On another note, Tesco's responded to my request with a simple 'no', and 'We dont know' when asked about Cybertron Scouts)

A few pages ago I said that Tescos had scouts in, (just Ransack, Scattorshot and Overhaul) as well as the two deluxes.

And, on a totally hilarious note, Hamleys has Cybertron Deluxes in... I'm talking 50 or so... of Sideways and Snarl... Hmm, I think the Hamleys buying manager might be a bit pissed with Hasbro UK's sales team...
