    Sainsburys in Purley Way had a couple of Voyager Optimus Primes in, but also some legends figures too. No deluxe class at the moment. My search for Roadbuster continues.

    Just been out exploring... Romford Tesco's is a desert...nothing but revenge of the fallen legends an PCC two packs....
    The Entertainer in the brewery has stuff in, loads of Cyberverse single figures. Loads of deluxe Bumblebees, and I think about 2 Crankcases, (I had the last Roadbuster, Starscream and Ratchet.. :)  ) They had 1 Voyager Megs, 1 Ironhide, and about 3 Primes.
    Since that shop cost me about 75 quid I decided that was the end of the trip :)

    Talk about taking one for the team, I sullied myself by looking in Forbidden Planet London, a special place where price competition does not exist and children apparently get £100 per week pocket money.

    DOTM Voyagers - Megs, Ironhide, Prime, £30 each
    DOTM Legends/Legion - didn't see the price, but probably at least £500 each
    DOTM Deluxes - none, nada, not here
    RTS Legends - all figures including mega, starscream, goldbug as well as the common ones - £5.99
    RTS Voyagers - lugnut, strafe, grapple, blue fallen £30
    RTS Perceptor - loads of them £15 of £16 IIRC
    RTS Wreckgar x 1, RTS Tracks x1
    Loads of RTS Bumblebee classic, and G2 Prime
    PCC Heavy tread and Skyhammer, plus all the others - £12.99 each

    NO Windchargers! having been there everyday for the past month nearly, whoever said they had 2 in was hallucinating. They do have dozens of Hubcaps though.

    Also in the 'discount' section, they are selling a BROKEN Banzaitron for £15. and PCC combiner sets for the 'discount' price of £23.

    Sainsbury's Leicester (The one near Abbey Park)
    DOTM Voyagers, Megs, Prime and Ironhide
    DOTM Cyberverse.... commanders? Megs and Prime
    DOTM Cyberverse ...... erm, the cheap ass wanky looking ones... Skids and Barricade

    A smattering of RTS stuff too.

    Was tempted by DOTM Megs until I saw him in the flesh. Looks a bit "meh".
    One to get when I have a "must get platoc crack NOW" mood, or he's reduced.

    After a ride by Smyths and TRU, seems like TRU is the best place for prices on DOTM at the moment. Smyths have the same Mechtech and Cyberverse range as TRU, but the voyagers are priced at £22.99 as opposed to £19.99.

    Entertainer Westfield still has pretty full pegs for most of the DOTM stuff so I'll just post what they're down to the last of.

    Only 1 dlx Starscream, Crankcase and 1 voyager Megatron left. £13/£23, respectively.

    (Very sweet, saw a mum buying her little boy a Scout OP and legends BB. He was chuffed. Tear-in-my-eye nostalgia.)

    Well, my mind fucking boggles...

    I was in Great Yarmouth town for the first time in weeks, and since it was DotM toy release day too thought I'd have a scoot around and see what's what. Sainsburys: no DotM at all. Tesco Express: not DotM at all. Asda: no DotM at all. Debenhams: no DotM at all. It was like the new toyline didn't exist. And this was mid-morning too, so it wasn't like I'd ran into the stores as soon as they'd opened and not given them a chance to put the new stuff out yet. Nor was it like I was too late and they'd all been sold because there were no spaces or shelf edge tickets for DotM. All there was were the same tired old figures that have been on these stores' shelves for the last few months.

    I did finally locate a few DotM figures in Kerrisons but I have no intention of paying £25 for such small Voyagers. Or any Voyagers really. Besides, the only Voyager out yet that I'd have wanted, Megatron, looked to have already been snapped up since there was only Ironhide and scawny Optimus left on the shelf. Along with these were Optimus, Megatron and Ironhide Cyberverse (or whatever they're called) for £8.99 and Bumblebee, Topspin, Sideswipe and Barricade Legends (or whatever they're called now) for £4.99.
    So weedy figures, lack of availability and horrible prices means I'll be keeping my money for the forseeable.

    The most 'exciting' thing was Tescos has Scouts (not PCC two packs) priced at £3.97. But then the only Scout they had was Oilpan. Yippee...

    Went to Toys R Us Lakeside after work. Stood looking at the Legends (Cyberverse.. Whatever). £5 is too much for repaints of toys I probably own at least 4 times already and only paid £3 for when ROTF launched. So walked away. But they did have a shelf full of Masterpiece Grimlock at £60 each. First time I've seen him round these parts. Also a shame I've got 2 of them or I would have snapped it up.

    Went on my first hunt for nearly year since being at uni...god its good being nerdy again!

    Anywho, went to Nottingham and Derby Toys R Us and found at both:

    DOTM Deluxes Wave 1: Bumblebee, Starscream, Skids, Roadbuster, Crankcase and Ratchet
    DOTM Voyagers wave 1: Optimus Prime, Ironhide and Megatron
    Had Cyberverse stuff as well, but I'm afraid none of it appeals to me so I con't say who was there- although they did have Ironhide.

    Bought Roadbuster, Crankcase, Megatron and Ironhide :)
