    I must have been! Was in late afternoon after 3! Gonna pop up to TRU again late april. Got a fiver off spending £30 voucher so I may use on TF's or 4 turtles classics.

    On a sightings note local B&M has a Kreo bumblebee set in. I wasn't paying much attention to it but it was fairly big and might have said "stealth" on the box. Also they had a few red DOTM Voyager Ironhide repaints in.

    Me too, and also GT News. Not managed to find a Galvatron though. If anybody has one spare (or would be able to pick one up for me), I'd be happy to pay for it, plus postage and time.

    Hucknall Home Bargains had the red Ironhide and Megatron DOTM voyager wave in as of Sunday.

    It's the first time I've spotted them in HB as B&M usually have that wave in.

    Orbital Comics in London has the Generations Voyagers in stock, but their prices are a little steep. £35 for Soundwave and Soundblaster, and £40 for Grimlock and Blaster. They also had a few sets of Data disks to go with them.

    There was also a MP-13 Soundwave with the Amazon exclusive 2 extra Energon Cubes for £175 at the front of the store.

    DaftRaider - welcome to the boards! Swing by the UK toy discussion, why not?
    Also, Orbital is a lovely place. Catch you in there sometime!

    On a sightings note, heading to Bayswater TRU tonight, see if I can't forlornly look at toys that aren't quite enticing me, such as FOC Combaticons and data discs.

    They're not that steep for imports, Kapow sell for similar prices. That means I'd better not visit there for a while though as I may get tempted :)

    Ah, bugger! local asda re-done it's tiny toy isle after stock take. Only TF stuff now is botshots.

    The annoying thing is they are selling the Kreon Micro Changers on their website but not in store >_<
