    My Dilemma

    Has anyone ordered anything from www.play.com?

    Ive just ordered what I hope are deluxes Jazz and Barricade at £9.99 each, the problem I have is that there is another version of the deluxe figures at £14.99.

    On the £9.99 versions, the picture and description is of the deluxe version but the item heading isnt classed as deluxe where as the £14.99 does say 'deluxe'.

    Im just hoping its a site error that hasnt been updated and that I havent ordered the FAB's:( 

    Anyone else confirm im okay as I cant get in touch with anyone at play.com and the phone is constantly engaged.

    Any help would be appreciated:)

    I'll check Sainsburys tomorrow, hopefully I can bag myself Brawl and Barricade.
    Hopefully....

    Luckily, the Sainsburys nearest to me also has a Wilkinsons nearby!

    I ordered the £9.99 WRECKAGE and he was processed and sent with no trouble. That was a couple of days ago so he hasn't turned up yet (and with tomorrow's postal strike, it'll be next week now!!)
    Just order the cheap one, there should be no problems. Play.com often duplicate listings like that.

    Cheers Red, thats eased my worries a little.

    I had visions of FAB or LoC Jazz and Barricade turning up at my door.

    Bloody strikes lol, they only work half a day and get a decent wage. Lazy buggers, if you dont like the job description, dont go for the job! Still, Bonecrusher will keep me happy till they arrive, Bonecrusher HATES postal workers:ev:

    TRU offer extended till 5th July now.

    BTW, anyone have any idea where I might be able to get the Takara version of Bumblebee? They had it for preorder on BBTS, but they've sold out there. Is there anywhere in the UK that imports?

    Checked both Sainsburys near to me, no luck, same with both nearby Wilkinsons, I think online is gonna be the only way I can get the movie characters......damn.

    C'mon TRU.co.uk, get the real deluxes in, not the stupid protoforms.

    Starscream and ironhide were out a TRU near me today. only saw 1 of each and that was not on the main wall display but mixed in with the other action figures. I left them on the shelf in the hope of getting G1 coloured starscream - any news on if we will get it? although a lot of robo-vision primes are availible at £40 from places such as ebay or amazon i wouldnt pay anything near tht for starscream (or prime for tht matter)

    Picked up Ratchet and Ironhide at Chatham today, no deluxes, and no restock of the booster real gear.

    Getting annoyed about this whole deluxe thing now.

    No sign of any Deluxes apart from the protos around here. Where are they?

    They are showing up at some select few Sainsburys and Wilkinsons.
    I personally am on the edge of just ordering online, save myself the hassle.

    EDIT: Oh yeah, also TRU will carry Beatmix BB, so yeah, its not a US exclusive.

    Wave 2. Wave 1 is (IIRC) 2 X Bumblebee, 2 x Barricade, 1 each of Jazz, Wreckage, Scorponok and Brawl. Sightings of any will indicate the rest have been there or are residing out the back.

    Oh and don't forget the UK sightings thread at http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/showthread.php?t=86570&page=57
