    They came and went in my nearest Toymaster in the blink of an eye, and have yet to be restocked. So quantities may be on the scarce side for a little bit yet.

    We could all buy the proto forms while they're on the offer and exchange them when the other deluxe's arrive LOL:lol

    hehe might just do that. but there's proabably soemthing on the system to stop you doing it. grrrr.

    are the one that people have seen already in the euro packaging with the toy pic on the front? cos a lot of british online sellers have the US versions.

    oh woolies have finally caught on with the BOGOHP offer. Hopefully it'll carry on once the non-proto deluxes come in.

    GAH! My Toys 'R' Us... as most probably everyone elses in England has a Huge Transformers Wall, it has basicly every toy, Sticker book and everything else. It has a huge Bumblebee staring down at everything, its really cool. Usually when I go in there, there are aload of people crowding round it ¬_¬ it all belongs to me damn it!

    There's a fairly good chance that the remainder of the early movie toys won't be seen until BOGOHP is over.




    Euro packaged versions have been sighted in several different retail shops.



    Not that i know of.

    Strangely my local Argos now has no sign of tyhe new toys at all. The had a whole page devoted to the new toys when they were released and now... Zip, nada, nuthin. The was no sign at all that the stuff existed.

    Has anyone else seen this elsewhere?

    Haven't seen the deluxes anywhere! I asked in my local Woolies if there were any more boxes upstairs, but all they could find were the Real Gear wave 1.

    Went to TRU in Chatham this evening to see if they had any non-protoform deluxes. Still none there, but I did pick up Voyager Ironhide and Starscream! I think SS is my fave of the movie voyagers :)  I would have got the two leader toys as the BOGOHP is still on til tomorrow but even at £30 each I think they're a little expensive. Especially when you realise that in the US they cost about the same as we pay here for a voyager or alternator!

    I got my leader Prime from forbiddenplanet.co.uk for £28 and a little bit o' shipping. Was delivered in about a week and a half. :thumb 

    This wait for the deluxes is getting tedious, watch them appear on shelves after the offer ends...

    Wait, they have Ironhide in now? Might have to take a look this weekend.

    Well Woolies has onyl just started the BOGOHP offer so I'm hoping that they'll get the Deluxes in before it ends. I think soemwhere on this thread is the mention of 30 June as the Deluxe release date so I'll take a look in the shops on Sat.
