    The Entertainer, Kingston, has £15 voyagers - Starscream and Thundertron - as well as £10 for BH deluxes, including Smokescreen, which I hadn't seen in the wild before, and £8 for Prime deluxes - early waves including Soundwave and Cliffjumper.

    John Lewis had the voyager wave with brown fish Megatron.

    I saw Smokescreen in either Sainsburys Richmond Rd or Bentalls (both in Kingston) a couple of trips back home ago.

    Kingston Entertainer looked like a bomb site when I was in there on Tuesday!

    Sharkticon Megs is in Reading John Lewis - may have to pick him up at some point, looks better than I expected.

    Further to Zidane's post, there's a printable voucher for use in store until 31.01.14 knocking around online too

    Cheers,
    Doug

    TRU 'exclusive' generations FoC cassettes found today in B&M. £3.99 a pop. Found these two sets a good home. Just need to get a SW now.

    Hopefully that means we might see more Generations stock there in future! Or that TRU couldn't shift enough of them and just looked for anywhere to sell them on ;)

    Nott'm TRU had a couple of FOC Kickbacks in stock. It was the first time I'd spotted him in there.

    They also had 2x YOTH MP Prime's, 3x Metroplex, 1x MP Acid Storm and 1x BH Prowl

    Also spotted them in my home town. It would be nice if others showed up but I am guessing it's just TRU getting shot of some serious over stock on these guys

    Hope the Generations Voyagers appear soon and the next wave of deluxes, sick of ordering them online! The FOC wreckers also need to get here pronto as does the other 2 FOC Voyagers -.-

    Anyone know if MP Soundwave will be restocked? Or am i wishfully thinking here?

    I ain't seen sight nor sound(wave) of him since he first appeared. I think it's looking v unlikely. Wish I hasn't of hesitated when I did :/

    Sightings wise I spotted the Construct-a-bot leader Megs and OP twin pack in sainsburys at half price. £17.50 thereabouts if your that way incline. Not interested myself but others may.

    Thinking of visiting Bull's Bridge TRU?

    Want anything other than the tiny Generations Bumblebee with helicopter minicon, the FoC Starscream deluxe, or some hideous TFP junk?

    Then don't bother!

    Unfortunately, when I was trying to track one down for my son just before Christmas, I was told by a toys r us employee that they were no longer a stock item (ie no longer being carried) and they only had what stock was left on shelves. Luckily enough, I tried another branch and they had one left (he wasn't getting my one.... Son or not!!!!).

    But then again, this is TRU and anything can happen... Year of the horse anyone ;)
