    I like bot shots! :)  But early waves I did import as I didn't trust them to turn up.

    Nabbed DOTM Air Raid & Darksteel from Wrexham Entertainer this morning for £6.50. Also got CV Nightwatch Optimus from Tesco for £6.65...alas, the Magnus' were already gone *shakes fist at sky*.

    Took a stroll to Sainsbury's too to check out any remaining wave 3 deluxes apparently sighted the other day. There were none there. Not even a Bumblebee. And a staff member said they hadn't had any new deluxes in months. :confused:

    See my previous reports on local Sainsburys - Deluxe Bee and Cliffy only, with a few wave one Voyagers and a handful of Legion. Nothing more for weeks now.

    I am really waiting for wave three to hit properly. We have seen scattered sightings with pretty much no pattern to them, and even then the Vehicons usually dont make it to the shelves. Outside of FP, I think only about half a dozen people here have found a Vehicon at retail, and if dedicated collectors cant find them, who are out searching and clued in to where they are, you know that they are rare.

    Surely, the entire wave is about to hit mainstream stores any week now.... right?

    Yes mate. That's the company. They have high street branches & bigger B&M Homes stores which stock more toys, think its there the HAs have been spotted.

    The RtS deluxes, which they seem to easily restock, are just £6.99. It's the Jazz, Tracks wave of four. HA basics are £4.99 for the record.

    Our B&M didn't have the larger HA on Sunday so I'm hoping that they get them in sometime this week. They only had 1x Whirl in the basic HA and loads of those Go-Bot things as well as Cyberverse figures.

    Which ones? The recent DOTM wave, the Lockdown / Brawn ROTF wave, and the RTS Jazz, Tracks, Fallback and Mindset wave were definitely £6.50 in a couple of London branches recently.

    Also, for all the complaining about some areas not getting love compared to others, a few years ago the latest TFA and ROTF waves (that Asda had first dibs on) appeared everywhere but London for the first week or two of release.

    They were £6.50 online (I got a Dark Steel) and I am sure that some stores had them at this price too. eBay has them at £10 from the Entertainer, though.

    Sightings in Bristol

    Tesco Imperial Park had one deluxe Ratchet alongside the usual wave 1, Commander Ultra Magnus, Ironhide and a few Dreadwing were also there.

    TRU Brislington had a few of the Kre-o Decepticon Ambush packs, most were situated behind some Kre-o Battleship. Nothing else TF wise, but they did have a full assortment of Lego LOTR, so tempting....:(  One thing that did catch my eye, seeing some Green Lantern figures with the Only at Target stickers on them, anyway it's just more crap filling the pegs.

    Home Bargains Brislington had a few DOTM Ark sets for £9.99, and some HA Basics at £4.99 (no idea which wave), no Roadbusters though.

    Sainsburys Winterstoke Rd and the lone deluxe Cliffjumper has returned again, so no Wave 3.

    That's right, positive thinking! *laughs like a mad-man*

    According to a label on the shelf, it was part of a flash sale that lasted only the weekend (though they were still £6.50 yesterday). They're back to £10 today.

    £10 for a previously unreleased Deluxe isn't bad. I wouldn't pay that for Specialist Ratchet, but that's almost what it cost for mine at the cheaper price + postage (since Entertainer aren't open on Sunday, I would have to pay parking as well as petrol, so the cost is about that whatever you do).

    Asda in west bridgford, nottingham, has the PRID wave 2 deluxes in at 9.79. I saw Ratchet and Arcee in there, amongst the usual Bee,Wheeljacks,soundwaves and cliffjumpers.

    They also have all the Kreo stuff at massive discount. My mrs brought me Mirage for £4.25, and they also had jazz at the same price.

    I think Ratchet and Prowl (the large sets) were around £8.
