    Welcome to the world of twisted logik.

    I know that Edinburgh TRU still had some Shockwave last weekend. I'd intended to go to it again today, and would have happily picked one up for you, but I'm feeling a bit rough today.

    Why not just ask for help in here?

    Went to fp London last night trying to get a cuddly Nibbler for my Katie and all their futurama stuff was gone so I had to look at transformers instead to try and make my trip worthwhile, they failed.

    Plenty of foc wave one at seventeen quid a throw and lots of overpriced prime, bugger all else.

    Thanks.... I am honestly not sure how much I actually want him, to be honest. I am waiting to see how I feel when I see him in package, and being a little cheaper wont hurt. He is not one that I really have to have right now. If I miss him, it wont kill me, I was just using him as an example of how shortpacking and Hasbro decisions result in one of the best figures of that wave, and one of the most popular, are also one of the most difficult to find. I saw two full pegs of each of Prime and Jazz in my local TRU.

    Westfield Entertainer last night - Kreo mightily reduced - Starscream £10, Jazz £6, Sentinel Prime £15, Prowl £9 - I was almost tempted to start collecting it...

    But... 20% off Prime voyagers - OP, SS, Bulkhead in stock, £18.40 each. Grabbed a Bulkhead, regarded it, thought it worth no more than a tenner, put it back.

    Also BOGOF on the DOTM legends - seemed to have most of the later waves.

    And a shedload of Tuner Mudflaps and Cyberfire Bumblebees for £6.50 each.

    Not an in store sighting, but I nabbed a Masterpiece Prime (the original one with burn damage on it) for £4 at a boot sale. No gun or matrix, but otherwise perfect condition. Plus, I have craptons of replacement guns for him at home. Unfortunately, I was £3 short because I bought a few albums, and so my brother helped pay for it. Annd so now he's taken ownership of it. The bugger.

    Scored a HFTD HA Bumblebee and DOTM Voyager Megatron in B&M today :D 
    They had all the DOTM Voyagers except Skyhammer and Fireburst Prime, had all three Leaders and a bunch of Deluxes and Cyberverse too. Wanted Cannon Force Ironhide too, but I was short on cash :/

    Does anyone know what star wars vintage figures are available at B & M stores??? Only a few in my local store...

    Southend B & M had very few voyagers - only sentinel and optimus' i think, all the various deluxes usually sighted and loads of HA bumblebee but no sideswipe :(

    Leicester B&M had no Star Wars stuff at all :/ I wish they'd had HA Jazz. That figure is beautiful.

    So, a sure seller may not be out for Christmas? Are TRU trying not to make profit or something? Their actions boggle the mind!

    picked up 3 of the kre-o microchanger packs from woopee (toymaster) plymouth today. they were behind the counter (dirty dirty kre-o) so the girl passed them to me, i payed, put them in my pocket and walked out...... didnt check the numbers (school boy error) ended up with waspinator and 2 scorponock's DOH!. as far as i know this is a first sighting outside a comic shop/ebay.

    edit:
    just thought id add the numbers. bulk numbers are different but the end is still the same.
    22261 1 scorponock
    22261 2 waspinator
