    Production window for Voyager Wave 2 is probably closed now.

    So i'd lean towards Never.

    Entertainer, Westfield - 2x Air Raid, 2x grey Topspin, lots x Darksteel, Cyberfire BB, Specialist Ratchet, black Mudflap - £6.50 each. Took my pick of the Darksteel to get the best paint apps.

    Also - the later DOTM CV commanders are in (not seen these in The Entertainer before), all £4.50, was toying with Powerglide but found the last Guzzle in the shop, instead.

    TFP - 1x Wheeljack, Cliffjumper, voyager Megatron, usual prices; smattering of CV stuff.

    ALERT! They are down to their last four ROTF Mixmasters! ALERT!

    Found a cyberverse commander Ultra Magnus and legion class Breakdown in Oxford today, in the department store Boswells in town centre.

    No sign of wave 3 deluxes anywhere yet though.

    Toymasters catalogue is showing Wave 3 of TFP Deluxe. Vehicon and Ratchet.
    But my store has never stocked them in. Every store can order what they want and some won't even bother. So it's worth a look but I wouldn't hold out much luck.

    Ebay:
    there £11.99 which is standard retail price everywhere and worth every penny, great set, really likely not having a big bot or vehicle to build

    Ahhhhhhh good old Boswell's,
    I have fond memories from the 80s in that shop (got G1 ratchet, hound,sideswipe from there, also the toy dept used to be down stairs instead of up, I can still visualise it in my head,
    I've never seen another Boswell's in my life - is it just a unique oxford shop,


    They got lotr Lego on shelf now - but my anticipation dwindled as I'm more into the kre-o minifigs (lotr can wait)

    Gunna try and con the misses into a trip to toys r us Northampton today, hope cliff is there,
    Its gunna cost me tho, as I'd prob have to buy her a new top or something

    Tell me he's as good as he looks,

    Also still need the kre-o bumblebee set (one with bee and redalert miifigs)
    Where how do and how much?

    There's a Prime deluxe Arcee in Tesco Newbury if anyone still needs one (along w/ eleven 'Bees), there was a CC Magnus too, but he's mine now :) 

    No sign of deluxe w3 anywhere in Reading yet tho :(

    And that's a bought! Good spot.

    Looks like this branch of B&M in Manchester is betting big on TFs.

    Cribbs Causeway -

    TRU had the Avengers Helicarrier in stock for £69.99, looks utter rubbish and certainly not worth that price. Nothing new TF wise other than more Prime Voyager Wave 1 than before :(  Just 1 Weaponizer Optimus left, Bumblebee does sell!

    Tesco again sitting on the same stock.

    Asda had a restock on the deluxe, can't tell if it was wave 1 or 2 since there are no Arcee or Ratchet on the shelf, however Cliffjumper, Bumbl....blah, blah, blah....

    Smyths, no change.

    John Lewis still have one Knock Out left along with Arcee and the rest (no Vehicon). Cyberverse Magnus is still there.

    Tesco in Bradley Stoke did have one Commander Magnus alongside a plague of red and yellow, however....

    I did the same then left the store, walked halfway across the car park and then decided I wanted it. Came home to find it's a massive disappointment, the shoulder joints are so loose the arms just fall off! Oh, and neither hand can hold the hammer...

    Yep! Been listed since the end of last summer, also I do believe there was one sighting of the Prime in a TRU going back last Oct/Nov time, but never saw any confirmation afterwards.
