    I'm in Stafford, I tried to buy a Generations Springer and was promptly informed that:

    "Buyers outside the U.S. cannot purchase the following types of items from sellers: video games, toy and baby items, electronics, cameras and photo items, tools and hardware, kitchenware and housewares, sporting goods and outdoor equipment, software, and computers."

    EDIT:
    Well, that sucks. Cheers for the info.

    Ah well, cheers to you and Simond for replying anyway; I should probably stop clogging up the sightings thread with my Amazon woes :)

    It is a bit of a crap shoot. You need to look at this bit under the product description:

    Heads up! MP Acid Storm is £49.99 on TRU website and Click and collect! Not sure if he's that price on shelf as they hadn't changed the price label on him at the Lakeside TRU but yeah - click and collect him or order him online for cheap! Well worth it - the green isn't all that bad! :D

    If anyone needs the 2nd wave of Kreon Microchanger Combiners (Piranacon etc) they're insanely cheap too, provided you order more than $25.

    Physical sightings: Darlington now has a Home Bargains, they had Microchanger Devs and Predaking at £2.99 each and (rather depressingly) about 50 DOTM Bumblebees. :(

    Nice to see the new Entertainer store in Norwich Castle Mall is finally open. They seemed to be setting up that place for months.

    Anyway, picked me up one of those Beast Hunters 'Beast Fire' Ultimate Predakings for £24.99, which was nice. They also had the Optimus at the same half price, which was kinda annoying as I'd only just bought one from TRU a few weeks earlier at £33. Ah well.

    Also, as I was in the queue waiting to pay for my Predaking, I spotted some little boxed Block Tech kits for £1 each. My young niece likes Lego-type stuff so I picked up the five different £1 sets they had there (two space vehicles with a figure in each, a fire tender, a police car and a contruction vehicle) as extra Christmas stocking fillers. They only average about forty pieces in each set, but she can mash them all together and make something bigger if she fancies.
    Just thought I'd mention them if anyone else was looking for cheapy extras for the kids.

Also they have beast hunters Ultra Magnus and Grimwing instock. FOC voyagers are £19.99 as the website but havnt been labeled up yet. brought FOC Grimlock finally at £19.99.

    Brent Cross TRU has 2x giganto Metroplex. £125. Not held the box in person before. Terrifying.

    Had lots of £50 Acid Storm. Meh.

    Of the latest FOC stuff - only one Sideswipe, no Kickback, shedloads of Magnus and Air Raid.

    Also, those little Optimus and Bumblebee chaps with the targetmaster buddies are down to £10 each.

    Across the road at Fenwick's, they've got a last few PCC commanders, including Heavytread, at £10. Also a later wave of ROTF scouts - Backfire, Insecticon, etc. at £8.

    Retro.
