    Plenty of Siege wave three deluxes in Forbidden Planet on the quays, €19.99 each

    Impactor and Mirage listed as "No longer available" on the Smyths Irish website, despite not seeing any release here and several reports of them appearing in shops in the UK. Nice to see Hasbro UK cares about us

    Do Smyths UK and Smyths Ireland order items separately? If not, it seems a bit like they sent then to UK branches first and left us in limbo.

    Hasbro UK are 'trying' but smaller retailers are having problems getting orders filled.


    I saw a couple of Imactor / Mirage / Barricade in Sub City yesterday if that's any use to anyone.

    one UK dealer told me they have Impactor, the other two are due in about a week.

    On that basis, FP might have the other 2 in the next week or so.

    Smyths has TR Overlord for half price, same for Smyths UK. Still no sign of Apeface anywhere besides Forbidden Planet.

    Anyone seen Cyberverse Tiny Turbo Changers anywhere? Not on Smyths website, hoping they show up in Toymaster or something.

    Toymaster stuffed with siege. Five refraktors and a few Red Alerts, as well as a load of Megatrons, Starscreams and Springers. Still a few POTP roadtraps. Possibly around a hundred series 1 Botbots. A few series 3 botbots, but they seem to have already rifled through, mostly figure 9’s and 11’s. still a load of series 1 TLK turbo changers, sadly no Cyberverse ones :(  TLK voyagers on sale for €20, deluxes for €18.

    Omega Supreme showing out of stock for most smyths locations.

    Trypticon went from I think, €130 down to €100. Don't recall exact prices but it was that proportion of reduction.

    2nd-hand info tells me Smyths ordered a lot less of Omega than Trypticon.

    In other words, those of you waiting for a heavy discount might not see history repeat itself.

    Ken Black toy shop in Carlow had Omega Supreme today. They have other shops in kilkenny and portlaoise, might be no harm looking there too.

    Big Bang Comics in Dundrum got some last week.

    If that's any use to you.

    Edit. Smyths Stock Checker says Jervis St Branch has three Omega Supremes,
    Tallght has one.

    Thanks Folks!

    Looks like the "expected in stock 9-16 November" message was reliable after all! Will pick one up this week.
