    Smyths at Cribbs Causeway had one each of Arcee and Ratchet. No other changes TF wise. Lego LOTR and Monster Fighters are now available along with Spider-Man Dr Ock Ambush set.

    TRU have restocked the Weaponizers with plenty of each. Also Lego LOTR and Monster Fighters.

    No change in stock at either Tesco or John Lewis, didn't bother with Asda since it's becoming a waste of time walking through there. Also Chavs, and lots of them. Ugh.

    Wrexham Entertainer had more CV wave 2 commanders earlier; and Asda Living had a deluxe Arcee knocking about and CV legion wave 2 - only one of each scattered amongst a ransacked shelf. Except they didn't have Evac. I only wanted Evac.

    Asda had the vomit-green packaged movie Spiderman figures too; first time i've seen those anywhere.

    No sign of CV Magnus anywhere here still.

    Why don't you phone them and ask. It does no harm and saves time and petrol on a wasted trip.

    Does anyone else have a B&M near them that is stocking the American packed DOTM Deluxe Bumblebee's?

    As if we don't have enough of them, we're now getting the U.S's back stock of them!!

    Sainsburys Enfield (the one in the retail park opposite the TRU) has CC Magnus and Nightwatch Primes, I didn't look too hard for numbers, but CCs are £7.99 IIRC.

    TRU Opposite had nothing new unfortunately.

    Just BB I'm afraid.

    I did look for others as I wouldn't have minded a Ratchet.

    See, the conspiracist in me jumps to the conclusion that the US are now sending us the Bee's that they can't sell and keeping the good parts of the wave.

    Whether or not this is the case, the fact that this is where my brain goes is a pretty poor indicator of the state of things.

    There was cherry picking with * new * case assortments before (remember the Ice Cream Van incident from 09, and Barricade and Sideswipe disappearing from Wave 2 cases last summer?)

    So even if it's not directly *Hasbro* sending us cast off Bumblebees, but another party, i do think it's possible.

    Actually, for that matter Hasbro Asia were shipping straight cases of DX Soundwave..... This is a fairly loose set of evidence, but what Cybershadow is suggesting all seems very possible, likely even.

    ASDA Cribbs Causeway had Prime RID Deluxe Ratchet (I bought it) which is a good sign that they're finally starting to go past wave 1, I also picked up an Arcee a few months back. They also had Bot Shots wave 3.

    Toys R Us and Smyths also had the Bot Shot 4 pack with Optimus and Megatron launchers with Brawl and Bumblebee.

    Also Hasbro UK have confirmed that Fall of Cybertron figures will be exclusive to Toys R Us and Smyths. They are to be released late August / early September.

    I wonder if this is a bulk deal for the HA that turned up a while ago. Were they same region packaging? It wouldn't surprise me if they were sold to B&M as long as they also took a load of Bee.

    I just can't see any retailer picking up Bee deliberately unless they can afford it otherwise. It does kind of make my blood boil, though.

    Is this the same Hasbro UK that said that...
    - Good news direct from Hasbro for UK FoC fans!

    Hasbro UK, memorise this. There will be a test!

    Perhaps they meant to say FOC won't be exclusive to any ONE store.


    In reality though, maybe everyone else didn't want them.... Smyths haven't been too quick to put any RID DXs past Wave 1 on their shelves, and i'm not sure TRU have been any better.

    Maybe retailers are starting to go 'either or'.
