United Kingdom Transformers Sightings

No UK Thread sightings thread you say ???? Is now.

Please remember to give the name & location of the store where you saw the toy.

Only use this thread for actual sightings in a store.

What the postman has just delivered to your house is not a sighting!

Please don't promote your "for sale" threads here either!

Please use this thread for sightings only and the new thread for discussing Transformers toys and related merchandise. Guidelines have been posting in the first post about what is acceptable in that thread.

Reviews and feedback of figures still goes in the Feedback forum, modding figures goes in the Radicons section, eBay links are to be posted in the eBay forum and sightings in this, the UK Sightings thread.
TRUs are getting the Supercon Prime & Blurr assortment at last.

Also sighted in the John Lewis in Brent Cross.

TRUs also getting Wave 2 & 3 minicons.

Yeah I did see that with Omega Supreme... its just the whole thing of charging 60 for a mass market toy, its madness.

Spotted Cybertron in Brent X TRU, Scouts (7) and Supreme Starscream (50). No sign of deluxes yet though.

Fenwick Brent X also has Cybertron Scouts (7) and Voyagers (Crumplezone and Vector Prime) for 20.

On a side note TRU also restocked on their Actionman ATOM stuff, looks like Hasbro UK are trying to get stock out before Half term next week.
