    Heading to Belfast tomorrow, hoping to get a few robits. Have siege deluxes been seen in the Entertainer there?

    One last bit before moving on. I do like this gag on page 22. Apparently Brawl normally has the impulse control of a five year-old.

    I was in a few days ago and the TF section was packed but Siege-wise there was only two Starscreams. Their site however has some older Siege deluxes listed so you never know. Forbidden Planet was down to a couple of more recent deluxes like Mirage and Impactor at £20 each. Smyths at Forestside had Thundercracker and Megs about a week ago. It's fucking slim pickings in Belfast...

    I hope that's on a ball joint lol.

    No it's snapped. It should rotate, it did rotate only it was the plastic joint tearing. Looks like the joint was stuck.

    Ouch! I noticed it didn't easily rotate so I just left mine as was, but they should definitely spin!

    Just ordered those new Earthrise listings from Amazon (Arcee and Alicon, see news page) - at £22.58 each they're having a laugh, but hopefully that won't be the final price and it's good to have options in terms of eventual cost and availability. I'll cancel them if need be. Could wind up needing dupes of them anyway if the alt modes are good.

    Hope to god that mirage is still there tomorrow, he’s the last siege figure I’m really interested in. Thanks!

    and yeah, seriously slim everywhere. Besides Cyberverse, no Smyths I’ve been in has had any quantity of TF’s. Plenty of Fortnite Pops on clearance, so clearly retailer money is being spent elsewhere.

    They're on the support pillar at the back, or on the floor around it. They've moved stock around a little to accommodate things like WWE and Diamond Select's new stuff.

    thanks for the pointer! My father’s a fan of comics, so we’ll be heading for FP anyway.

    I never got any preorders in for these, I think I'll just get the black and orange coloured one. Shame how little enthusiasm I have for this line now but I will still got one of each main robot.

    No probs, and just so you and everybody else knows, The Entertainer website has had a mini Siege update - just ordered Spinister to the store for £17.

    EDIT - The pick-up date was the 26th, so that might be a good indicator for anyone else who has orders in elsewhere.

    Says it all that sites are selling ER stuff while stores are still desperately trying to stock the last wave of Siege.

    Huh, my friend only found Hound and Brunt at Walgreens. Maybe at least he’ll find Bluestreak in Walmart.

    I think a lot of stores put Siege on clearance since ER has hit. That's why all the unsold Battlemasters are slowly appearing in discount stores over here.

    My friend is on a family trip to Chicago and he said he’d try to get me hooked up with a Ratchet and Bluestreak.

    Yeah, my mate in Texas is sending me Ratchet and Soundblaster next weekend. I hate exclusives!
