    SDeems Home Bargains are getting lots of DOTM stuff for cheap. Saw Sentinel Prime Leader in TK Maxx but it was 29.99. I still want to gether that Human Alliance Basics Quad bike (cant remember the name). Seems here we're getting every basic except that one. Le sigh.

    Is that the blue Sandstorm repaint?

    I'm sure my local HB has him in. Let me know if you want me to pick it up for you and we can sort postage out.

    Prime Legion Fallback, Tailgate, Wheeljack, Knock Out and another BB repaint in Liverpool One John Lewis. £4.95 a pop.

    Well, Fallback was there, but he's coming home with me now. :)

    Haven't been to Makro for aaaaages,
    Used to be quite good for toys, as long as you remembered to add the VAT on :) 

    Cheers,

    Boswells in Oxford have got:

    Cyberverse commanders latest wave with Skyquake et al
    Latest Deluxe wave with Kup, Rumble and that repaint of Wheeljack
    Weaponizers
    Wave 2 Voyagers
    No FOC though.

    I picked up Airachnid. I got home and opened Airachid. I wish I hadn't picked up Airachnid.

    Tesco at Neasden had signs of the new deluxe wave (aka a single black bumblebee mixed in with a hotshot, ratchet and of course...bumblebees), but no Dead End or Airachnid in sight.

    They also had the black Bulkhead and Skyquake commanders...emphasis on had though eheheheh ;)

    Yeah, Makro used to be very good, but alas no longer.

    They also had wave 2 TFP voyagers (saw a Starscream) and wave... 3(?) Deluxes, I saw Knockouts, Hotshots but no Vehicons.

    Crayford Sainsburys had wave 4 legions briefly though I sort of cleared them out for myself and tikgnat :) 

    There's a rumour that the Sainsburys toy sale is due to start on Wednesday though I can't guarantee it!

    I've heard all sorts on that too :)  Some say its not happening this year others say it starts first day of half term or next week - just have to be ready and waiting :D 

    On another note nothing new anywhere - Tesco Southend had only up to wave 2 deluxes :/ Good job i've already got kup and rumble!!! :D

    Why does everyone complain about Airachnid? I got her yesterday from Gillingham Tesco (they still have Kup and Dead End, no Rumble though as I Bought him last week!). Airachnid is fine as far as I am concerned!

    Ye thanks for the name. They replenished the deluxe range this week but no basic HAs :( .

    Well its not a very good transformer when compared to other stuff in recent years. Limited Articulation and its doesnt look all that pretty.
