    Nothing in Liverpool TRU today. Still loads of new SW bits and bobs, though, and one Grune The Warrior.

    2 HFTD voyager Optimus Primes in Lewisham TK Maxx this evening, 12.99 each. As a fan of bargain Transformers I was tempted, but it's really too similar to the half-price leader and deluxe movie Primes I already got.

    ..is the first time we've seen good pictures of these?

    If so, it might be News and Rumors worthy?

    Someone should PM the news mods - oh and try to include the packet in pics too please if anyone has it.

    I got some regular ones in ASDA Friday £3.45 - they didn't have the bigger ones though. they had put them in with the Easter Eggs for some odd reason though - they also had a stack load of new Star Wars toys too.

    Is it wrong of me to want Star Wars Transformers or Gi Joe Botshots too ?

    No bot shots in Stafford unfortunately - anyone who can pick me up Barricade, Screamer, Sentinel or the Megatron/trailer will have my eternal thanks!

    Not a sighting I know, but does anybody have a non-ebay source for FE Voyager Prime?
    I feel like I need it in my life now.

    Saw some bot shots in the asda they were first sighted: basildon :)  They had none of the bigger sets but had a shelf label for them and had all the standard bot shots minus barricade... Sentinel looks more like ironhide than sentinel and optimus and starscream looked very nice :) 

    The TRU nearby had 10 undertow's and 1 skyhammer as well as crappy DOTM stuff half way across the store...

    Saw a new star wars vehicle though - clone trooper with aqua speeder or something like that :)  Looked really nice - don't know if this is new news to anyone though :D

    My local Asda in Crawley has plenty of all the bot shots. If anybody needs let me know by email ASAP as am off there today only. Cost plus shipping. I could really use Prime Soundwave if anybody has one to part trade for bot shots...

    picked up all bot shots minus bumblebee from asda Gateshead there was still plenty left except for sentinel (think there's only one of him per case?) no launchers or prime deluxes but they did have shelf tags out for both deluxes and voyagers. 10.97 and 19.97 if that's of interest. also w h smith had tomahawk and sidearm sideswipe for 5.47 didn't even know they had tfs!

    also family bargains Gateshead had animated voyager prime (not the shoulder variant) for 9.99 though can't imagine many people still need one of those it's good to see other places with tfs.

    Sainsbury's, Finchley Road, ALL TRANSFORMERS ARE HALF PRICE.

    Alright! They must have loads of great stu-

    Oh. Four lots of CV commander BB with his ickle battle station, £5 each. One solitary Lazerbeak deluxe, £6.49.

    Oh, and a black repaint legends BB. Didn't check the price.

    If, however, this is a universal Sainsbury's 1/2 price offer, it may be worth checking out a nearby store.

    Half price Legions would be nice if they have them half price too ??

    I was in ASDA on Sunday, No new Botshots but they also had the shelf labels for all the prime stuff - they'd but a big seasonal display out full of stuff - nothing mega exciting though partly due to the assortments having so few characters in them.

    They did have Wave 4 Thor figures including Destroyer !!, and some more Captain America (including Heroic Age Cap) They had the most awesome looking 4" Lizard figure ever! a very nice Scorpion too in the Spider-man figures. and a bunch of Marvel Universe figures some of them were £5.00 and the Spider-Man were £7.77.

    I think the Spider-Man wave they had was this one (not 100% sure though as was mainly looking at the villans) :

    Sorry that is a bit off topic but I found it interesting enough to mention.

    I saw this but owing to the usual chaotic nature of sainsbury's shelving I assumed it was just the old deluxe prime shelf ticket that nobody had bothered to remove!

    I found a Transformers: Prime lunchbox and drink flash today in Asda at Wembley, and they currently have a couple of the Rescue Bots human + mini vehicle sets.

    Welp, Sainsbury's Ladbroke Grove is picked clean. There is literally not a single TF on the shelves and no stickers to indicate that there ever where.

    Apart from the little Kre-O BB.
