    Wrexham Sainsbury's was bursting at the seams with 4 DOTM 'Bees, some wave 1 & 2 Bot Shots, a couple of Kreo small Optimus' and 8 wave 1 Cyberverse (7 of which were BB) :redface2: 

    Asda had 1 deluxe Cliff, a few dishevelled wave 1 Cyberverse and 3 Kreo Ratchets for just shy of £20.

    It's a regular Aladdin's cave 'round here!

    Sainsburys, London Colney St Albans - Not a lot.

    Prime Voyager Op. Deluxe Bee and Cliffjumper, about 3-4 of each. Legion Bee, Arcee, Ratchet, total of about 6.

    Bot Shots - Prime and Megs launchers, and wave three; Jet Fire (now one less and one remaining), Lockdown, Topspin and Mirage, along with a few wave two; Brawl, etc.

    And, that's it for TFs.

    "Sainsbury's is a bit crap" would be the general theme of this presentation.

    Sainsburys on Winterstoke Rd has had no restock of Deluxe, otherwise still the same Cyberverse and Kreo as before. Asda on Coronation Rd has on each of Bumblebee and Cliffjumper, also plenty of Cyberverse Commanders, didn't look too closely but it looked like Wave 1 only.

    Last on the trip was Sainsburys in Avon Meads and found one Vehicon alongside one each of Hotshot, Ratchet and Knockout.

    If all my dreams felt as real as this then hopefully tomorrow morning I'll be waking up in a king size bed alongside Robin Tunney, Cote de Pablo and Stana Katic!

    *Goes googling names at work*

    Great, now I'm fired and there's no reason to hit Sainsbury's Ladbroke Grove or Finchley Road.

    Still no Vehicon at my local Sainsburys :(  Had restock of HotShot and Knock Out tho, so they obviously got a box of stuff they ain't put on the shelves.

    Harlow sainsburys (even though it has a massive toy section) has stayed true to its word of several months ago by never having got any PRIME deluxes or vayagers in at all,but has everything else including a whole new restock of DOTM mudflaps.WTF!!!

    Entertainer,B&M,Asda,Tesco and TRU has all the usual crap.

    Still about five Prime Bees clogging the shelves in my local Sains (Frome), but due to the recent bot shots restock, one suspects they've got wave three out back somewhere!

    Huh. SDCC Broot doesn't make me want to poke my own eyes out... as much as the regular one, anyway.

    RIP Cliffy - meh, I could do better myself.

    Hot Shot, Knock Out and Vehicon bought from Sainsbury's in Cannock (the Orbital) checked every day since Monday. They'd had none out since Monday, so you may want to check stores with none on the shelf in recent history.

    I'm gunning after the sear-my-eyes-out-with-neon G2 version, it looks so much more eye-catching. :D 

    I agree, a good customiser could do a far better job with some paint & torture equipment.


    Wrexham Tesco today had a restock (shock-horror!). They had one each of Cyberverse Ironhide and Dreadwing, and wave 3 Bot Shots. I nabbed the only Jetfire of those though.

    Still no Vehicon, but I did ask what they'd got out back and was told someone came in 2 days ago asking and walked off with one, and they couldn't be bothered to post the find on here grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr ;D pmsl

    TBF, not every creepy man-child posts here. Their internets are too clogged with terrible Anime things.
