    Just got a cyberverse Magnus from Tesco Basildon! It was in a sealed case so there was two nightwatch prime's left over as well as two regular primes already on the shelf - AND they managed to sell some DOTM deluxes and the R.I.D Cliffjumper, yet there were no cases of R.I.D wave 3 :(

    I haven't seen a Wheeljack or Soundwave, or an Arcee or Ratchet, on a shelf in weeks now. Its just really frustrating. I have never seen a Magnus on a shelf, but he is still new so won't be seen round these parts for about two to three months.

    There is some hope. I sent Hasbro UK an email and got this reply

    Actually, I would say that this is LESS hopeful! If they might have something out, they usually give dates say it is coming in two months, and then still these things are sometimes never seen. For Hasbro to say that the hope to have these out 'some time later' but have no dates or stores pretty much puts the last nail in the coffin for me.

    Seriously, Hasbro? Some time later this year? Pathetic. The line is already totally stalled on shelves. I have yet to see a Deluxe wave three figure anywhere. Anyone banking on these coming out and hitting shelves 'sometime later this year' is most likely going to be very disappointed.

    Yeah, but then.... you have to live in Nottingham! :wink: 
    Hertfordshire is notorious (I think) for even being a couple of months behond the majority of the UK.

    Good news, Toysrus' website have CV Ultra Magnus and Nightwatch Prime in stock (but for £10), definitely ordering Magnus seeing as I probably won't find him in stores!

    Third? That's got to be the most expensive army building ever.

    Cv Commanders wave 3 in Sainburys Hempstead Valley Shopping Centre tonight, They had at least 2 of Nightwatch Prime and not sure how many Magnus as Soon as I saw and picked up the one I bought I didn't bother to look behind for anymore but there may have been one behind him. Don't know for sure though! Sorry!

    Got my jet vehicon and Darkness megatron from Kapow today. Thanks Andy A1 service as per usual. Also picked up a few few more kreon sets from asda now the sale is on - Argos is still cheaper for the bigger sets but Jazz and Mirage only £4.75 so i got 3 of each. Plan on making some customs. I hated the look of Kreons but since iv got some at sale im loving them . so many possibilities.

    Complete restock in oxford street jl, only one figure was missing... :X

    Did get a good look at cyber verse magnus and dread wing. Nice looking figures but I'll be waiting for the voyagers.
