    I popped into Chatham TRU yesterday and they had just about everything short of Leaders and the non-preview deluxes.
    They had all Robot Heros, legends and both waves of Real Gears as well as the infamous Transforming toothbrush, a novelaziation of the movie and a wash kit on the shelves.

    All signs seem to be pointing towards the deluxes and leader(s?) appearing before the end of this week. Don't know if any TRUs have the new Transformers display up (that big wall of Doctor Who that you see as soon as you go in is being torn down at last and replaced with a giant TF one), but I was told it was going up on Wednesday, and to expect Prime then.

    They were moving stuff around when I was at the Reading TRU earlier - there were some cases of Deluxes lying about, had a look in one, all Protoforms, no others.

    Third hand info suggests that the BB and the others will be about two weeks.


    ...and while i'm posting, in case others missed it elsewhere. There are at least some Cullen versions of the voice changer in circulation, with the lower product number on the box. Some had the injection molding mark, some did not.

    Next week - I get money. I buy leader prime and some proper deluxes.

    This week... I settle for buying proper deluxes off Amazon.co.uk :)

    Wirral Woolworths stock so far:

    RATCHET and BLACKOUT Deluxe
    IRONHIDE, PRIME & STARSCREAM FAB's
    PRIME arm blaster
    Cyber Stompin' BUMBLEBEE (which really tempted me!!)

    Not much, but it's a start! I know someone who works there but they weren't in today. I may ask tomorrow if there's any more gear in the stock room. I was really looking for the Loc series...

    Heh, my rather determined friend was around bothering TRU again to see if they had Prime. Apparently, they actually have both him AND Megatron, and he ALMOST got them to bring them out of the storeroom for him, until it was discerned that they actually can't be sold before Wednesday. Oh, the rage was palpable. :) 

    In other news, happened upon the Cullen-voiced helmet today.

    TRU in Chatham has the leaders now but still no deluxes other than the protoforms. The leaders are beautfiully done, don't know if I'll be getting them though, I don't really have anywhere to put them.

    Grabbed the leaders from TRU this Wednesday m'self. Although once again, even after allowing them the lowest possible expectations (to actually have the display up on the day that they said it would be going up five days after it would have made sense to actually put it up), they STILL hadn't managed to meet 'em (in that they didn't have the display up). Useless buggers.

    £39.99. Though the BOGOHP ended on Wednesday, so I was able to snatch 'em for what amounted to £30 each.

    Huh. Girl behind the counter told me it was the last day when I bought the two leaders. Ah well, that's good, then!
