    Watford ASDA surprised me aweomely today!
    In terms of Transformers, they had a bunch of deluxes (RiD) wave 1 and 1 Arcee, Optimus Maximus for £35, some bot shots, CV Commander Wave 1 and 2 for about £7, the two wave 1 cyberverse vehicles for I think £18, the shelf plan also had a section for "Generations Deluxes". They had Kre-O Rotor Rage for £23, Decepticon Ambush (WOO!) for £12, Ratchet for £10, but the Lego section was amazing! Lots of summer sets stocked and at pleasantly cheap prices, Lego SW Desert Skiff was £20, Saesee Tinn's Jedi Starfighter for £25, Lego Monster Fighters Vampire Hearse for £20, and so on.

    Went into my local Tesco today to find Bot Shots at £2.74, they only had Mirage and Topspin left but other branches might have better selection. £2.74 is a lot cheaper than the average £3.99 or even £4.99 some places charge.

    Which is good as long as they send the item and not claim they have then say it must be lost in the post then make you wait two weeks for a refund.

    It's two successful and one failure from them with me, they got me Vehicon and botshot Ironhide but failed with CV Ultra Magnus so I'm willing to give them another chance.

    They have Ultra Magnus!? I can't see it on the site.

    I've ordered with them twice and they've been excellent, one time a Deluxe Vehicon and next a Deluxe Ratchet and Knockout.

    Wrexham Asda Living have shuffled all their shelves now too. They've certainly been busy with the TF's; they now stock...(drum-roll please!)....Bot Shots and CV Commanders. Bunged on the edge of a shelf. That's it, everything else has gone. :confused:
