    Wasn't Soundwave rare at first but now they're pretty easy to find? Hopefully Vehicon will eventually become the same. It's ridiculous on Hasbro's part to only supply 1 a case despite it being a troop building figure, Hot Shot doesn't even appear in the series and he gets 2 per case.

    I think it's because it used to be "bad guys don't sell" but I think it's reversed now with the amount of Bumblebees and Cliffjumpers on the shelves. Also Cliffjumper only appeared for what, 5 minutes? We see Vehicons on screen all the time.

    If I see Optimus I'll probably grab him, but I'm not going out of my way

    Given this is wave one - and if it actually gets a decent release, which is not assured at this point - I would assume that these three will be on shelves until Christmas at least.

    Thanks. Interested in Prime/Shockwave but not Jazz so much. Whatever happened to the Optimus Primal/BW Megatron that were supposed to be released at some point? I really wanted the Primal.

    Or was I dreaming about them?

    Sorry I bought two Vehicon's from there a week apart from each other, a few weeks back. I wanted two to go either side of Megatron.

    Went to Reading John Lewis to see if i could get me a CC Ironhide and CL wave 3, but they've got nothing new. Only Wave 1 Legions, Commanders and about 5 Deluxe Bumblebee's.

    Also went to the Entertainer to see if they had the DOTM Air Raid wave in, but again, nothing new. Instead of the Air Raid wave, they've decided to put out more DOTM Wave 1 and 2.

    So, a crap day for TF Hunting.

    Feltham Asda is living down to its usual nothingness and has only the mini Kre-O Optimus (loads of them), a few wave 1 and 2 TFP deluxes and, for once, something I've not seen before: Cyberverse Series 2 wave 2 legions. Are these commonplace? It's odd seeing movie toys in TFP packaging...

    I picked up an Evac and the redecoed DotM Soundwave as I'm addicted to blue robots. There's still at least one each left of each of the wave if anyone's after a movie Mirage (a bit rubbish) or a TFP Breakdown (pretty nice, but I'm not big on TFP).

    Nothing in Cardiff city centre, although Forbidden Planet does have a 2007 Movie Incinerator for £20. Everything else sucked though, John Lewis there has no deluxe figures only cyberverse including the play sets.

    Anyone Know if Argos has Wave 3 deluxes??? I suppose if they did they woudn't put them on offer as they'd be selling.... but you never know!!

    I imagine smyths will do the same soon also as they often copy argos' deals when it comes to toys :)

    Cheers for that dude! May pick up a powerizer Bumblebee now. Too bad I've already got all of the wave 1 deluxes, voyagers, and cyberverse..

    Argos also have pre-orders for TF: Prime The Game, seems that the release date is 2nd November, but the best part is how incredibly cheap the game is! On the Nintendo Wii and 3DS it's £23.99, and for the DS it's £20.49..all with free delivery to boot! Not bad.
