    I took back my Orion Pax and exchanged, no questions asked by TrU.

    This one is much much better. Although at first his leg was faulty - the swivel head was too large to fit inside his leg piece. Its hard to explain what I mean. But a quick filing down has sorted him out nicely.

    TRU Gloucester has a load of Beast Hunters stuff (I didn't really look to see what any of it was beyond being BH) a couple of MP Primes, a tonne of IDW Deluxes and now no FoC Voyagers, as I snagged the last Soundwave.

    Sorry to nag but can we be more specific when mentioning what figures are around?

    I forsee much confusion between FOC Soundwave, and MP Soundwave if prefixes aren't used... and considering we're all waiting with bated breath for MP Soundwave to arrive...

    I see the TRU website is also listing the Prime/Roller and Bee/Blazemaster Legends 2-packs. Anyone found those in-store yet?

    Boardwise said this on Wednesday;

    But remember TRU deliveries are "always" on Thursday, except for Thursdays, when they're on Tuesdays.

    Thanks BigPhill. I saw Boardwise's comment. As you said, I am just wondering that TRU may get FOC figures and IDW deluxe delivery between Wedndesday and now.

    Just give them a call, they're pretty good at identifying things. If you tell them it's a £25 figure called Grimlock or Soundwave, or the Deluxes at £14 (ish) with Thrilling 30 written o nthe package, they should be good for finding them.

    Stockport TRU has Generations Soundwave and Grimlock about 4 of each plus the IDW deluxes about 2 of each as at 9am ish today. After one year of not buying a Transformer I bought Trailcutter. I like him,a bit small but he fits the 'Classics' style I promised myself I would only buy if I was to buy again. Also Stockport Home bargains had the prime deluxes @£5.99 including Vehicon who was the last figure I bought due to all the interest in him at the time.

    Just in case it's not been said, the IDW Deluxes at Kapow come with the comics. They seem to be American stock. I think it's been said that the versions without the comic are wave 3 and the ones with are wave 5 but I don't know if that applies in the UK, and I'm not sure if we'll end up with a "10 langauges in one speech bubble" situation if they do come out over here.

    Two UK sightings reports first from my honeymoon in Blackpool:
    - the who shop some old banged up figures from generation 1 right through to the movie lines. Way over priced!
    - Toymaster had wave 1 beast hunters figures legion to voyager
    - Bonny st market toy store (out the back end of coral island gets you to the market across the st) had wave 1 beast hunters figures legion and deluxe. And the other toy market had some DOTM figures.

    Local sightings at my local tesco: Predacon rising figures bar the voyagers and at asda wave 2 kreo microchangers.
