    Well if I've got this right handovers have happened in the past, and no one got murderballed and left in a ditch, so I think its OK.

    If Brent X is on the cards I will do (PM or summat).

    On another note Reynster, pop your head in the UK discussion thread, generally all non sightings but UK toy related go in here.

    Went Smyth toys Rayleigh today to find Bot Shots WAVE 4 on the shelves - give me a news credit cause no one else has seen them yet :D  Also had the wave 2 3-packs (shockwave one and skyquake one) and more wave 1 with a couple wave 2 deluxes :)

    While checking out Asda on Coronation Rd this afternoon I noticed they have removed the Generations price tag, also the only Transformers on the shelf have been reduced to a handful of Commanders (Prime, Bulkhead, Ironhide).

    Found & purchased a Amoured Topspin in B&M so it appears the last wave The Entertainer got their hands on is more widespread. He was the only wave mate on the shelf so unless he's an oddity I'd assume Air Raid & Dark Steel are also around.

    John Lewis Watford: 2 Deluxe Knock Outs, 1 dlx Hot Shot, 1 dlx Arcee and 1 dlx Ratchet.
    They only had 2 cyberverse legions; Arcee and Ratchet, CV Commanders mainly Optimus Prime (didn't bother to check which version) and Starscream, there was also an Ultra Magnus which I snagged :D  Plus they had the Cyberverse vehicles for £20 but only the Jackhammer.

    Oh and my Tesco has had a restock of Prime Toys, 2 More Cliffjumpers & 4 more BB's, to add to the ones that were already there.
    Nice.

    Saw Prime Deluxe Wave 3 into TRU at Cribbs Causeway, sorry but I bought the only Vehicon. They are also running down on Wave 1 Voyagers, wouldn't be too surprised to see Wave 2 make an appearance in the next couple of weeks. Noticed price reductions on the new Kre-o sets, Devastator was down to £59.99 and the Prime/Megatron is £29.99.

    John Lewis have Prime Deluxes down to £9.70, they had one Vehicon (left it there ;)  ) along with the other case mates.

    Both Asda and Tesco had no Deluxes.

    EDIT - Forgot to add, Smyth's had new Botshots in, noticed single carded Powerglides and Shockwave in a three pack.

    Thanks for the heads up, just grabbed the Vehicon and Commander Ultra Magnus, as well as the Transforming Fireman Sam figure for my little boy :D .

    Strange thing though, Vehicon and Magnus scanned in at 12.95 and 8.95, while the shelf tickets showed them at 9.70 and 6.70. Got em scanned at the right price eventually :D

    Speaking of shelf edge tickets, yesterday I bought a TFP Cyberverse Ultra Magnus in Great Yarmouth in the big Tescos in town and it was ticketed at £8.97 and rang up at that, but in the Tesco just a few miles away in Caister Cyberverse Commanders are still ticketed at £6.97. I had a moan and got the difference back.

    Yes!

    Finally after over 4 years and 364 posts in this thread someone has managed to benefit from one of my sightings!

    I got the bike from TKM a while ago, and it was awful.

    Cheers,
