    Home Bargains, £29.99

    Had a tip from a friend who'd found them in a Home Bargains in Bury.

    Turns out the info was Kosher, and another friend hauled them from the Home Bargains near him in Selby.

    European Packaging, which I don't think we've seen on these before

    Silly Season is ON!

    There's a known EAN for Siege, see UPC/EAN barcode list for modern Transformers toys, but this set was unknown to exist in a European box till 30 mins ago!

    @Black Convoy, sometimes, because of the way your writing comes out in English, I read your news posts as though you're like a Latin Fred Rogers.

    Primus it took this long for the box set to reach UK shores?

    I think that settles it. Hasbro needs significant upgrades to their distribution system.

    It's the time of year when things change very quickly. I'd go back again regularly!

    Was a bust in Swindon tonight but it's made sure Home Bargains gets checked every trip out now

    I long for the nostalgic world of thirty minutes ago when reading this news opened exciting vistas of possibility, rather than the bitterly disappointing void of the present, aka standing in Milton Keynes Home Bargains at quarter to eight on a freezing cold November evening.
