    I got Wreckage recently, having pre-ordered him a couple of months ago - £14.99.

    Now I see they have separate £9.99 and £14.99 listings for Wreckage. :(  I want to get Swindle but I'm going to wait as long as possible before pre-ordering him.

    Also, I'm still waiting for Classics Astrotrain & Grimlock, and Revoltech Megs. Are Play.com ever going to have these in stock? :(

    Wave 1 deluxes found in TRU! Well, I say "found," but what I mean is, "box was lying on the ground, and my mate cut it open and bought everything in it before anyone could catch him." He got me a Bumblebee and Barricade, so I'll be heading around there in a day or two to see if I can gets me the rest!

    It's so f**king not fair that the Sainsburys my brother works at isn't considered big enough to sell the toys.

    And it's going to be the same situation with the Wilkinsons.

    3 sainsburys within a short driving distance of my house and none of them had a thing.
    Gave up on TRU on Sat and ordered Wreckage and Barricade along with pre-orders for Dropkick, Longarm and my personally most anticipated figure Payload.
    Wreckage and Barricade are already in processing. :D

    Damn s'a pity that Argos start getting in the ones I really want when the 3 for 2's over.
    I just bought Bumblebee and Barricade from HLJ. Should work out about retail price, and Bumblebee will have nicer windows. :D

    Oh for f**k sake, the moment I get cash and the bastards end the sale, sorry TRU, you just lost a customer, I was going to get all the Wave 1 deluxes and both Wave 2 voyagers, but if the offer is over, the hell with that.

    Londonderry branch (that's here in Northern Ireland, that is!). The deluxes only popped up on Monday, but as I said earlier, they weren't OUT, they were in an unopened box on the floor, and were snapped up. The Voyagers appeared on Wednesday morning, and there seemed to only be two of each - a friend got a pair for himself, and when I went to get mine in the evening, someone had made an attempt at hiding them in the back of the shelves. This cunning foe was summarily thwarted. I was also still needing Brawl, Wreckage, Jazz and Scorponok, but there were no more deluxes out, but I asked an assistant, and he quite happily went and got me a case from the back room, so that was me happy as larry for the rest of the evening. :)
