They were £8 in my Tesco. Way overpriced I feel.
strafe hasn't hit the UK yet right?
Oh, boo! You beat me to it. Picked one up at lunchtime today!
Note the lack of voyagers and deluxes from it?
Well considering its a Argos book, it would be rather odd to advertise toys that they wont sell right?
Well, there have been times they've had a photo of a certain TF product in the catalogue and then never stocked it. Universe Inferno never made it into their stores as far as I'm aware, despite being pictured, and did anyone find any of the BH Constructbots they had pictures of? Slightly different issue, sure, as we know they're not getting the Deluxes and stuff, but still frustrating.
Sweet, that's me talking the wife into a trip to the Metrocentre over the weekend.
"Oh, while we're here, do you mind if I pop over the road..."
No voyagers in Manchester when I had a look this morning, but those larger 1 steps or whatever they are seem to be moving at a steady pace. With generations being exclusive, and all the other lines having extremely limited variance, does Hasbro realise how badly these toys are going to saturate in the UK?
TRU Colliers Wood: a lot of AOE Deluxes (including about 30 Scorns which is a bit OTT) and a lot of those large one-step shampoo-bottles but no Voyagers. Being as small as the place is I don't know where they would fit any considering just how many FOC Soundwave's are still sitting around waiting for landfill.
Went to TRU Southampton today. Sounds like the same story as elsewhere. Wave 1 deluxes, grabbed Crosshairs, Slug, and Scorn. No Voyagers, plenty of 1 step and flip changer things. Have to say, I really don't like that that absolutely everything comes in exactly the same packaging. I had the flip changer Crosshairs in my trolley for ages before I realised and ran back to grab the Generations Deluxe. This is going to piss off an awful lot of parents.
Slightly diff issue cos those were stuff from different waves in the same line/price bracket.
Dont know if this supports your case or not but i did see some young kids with tfs in Manchester today, one of them was Movie grimlock, the voyager like probably of the one steppy variety.
Went to toys r us Manchester today and they had voyager prime and grimlock, they weren't with the main display near the entrance but further inside where they usually display transformers stuff. Picked up both.
Same deal at TRU Oldbury, they were towards the back of the store in the TF aisle, quite obscured as well.
Same again at Beehive Centre in Cambridge, tucked away at the back of the store.
In other news, Kapow has generations Tailgate and Skrapnel/Shrapnel in stock as a two pack. Ordered because I NEED TAILGATE and always wanted Shrapnel. I'm slowly building up my Lost Light crew!
Has anyone spotted any dotm deluxes for £6.49? Tru website has a lot of em listed for that price but so far only bumblebee I've seen in store . Really want barricade, jolt, armoured topspin n darksteal. Maybe ratchet at well at that price.
If they've got them online, you're probably better to just order them. I can't remember the last time I saw any of those figures in the TRU I go to, most often.
I have a transformers generations impactor of any one wants it? 15 quid
Optimus Prime truck was at Reading toys r us today. Took the nephew down to see him. He couldn't believe his little eyes. The free gift he got is pretty cool too. A little 2-pack of Diecast G1 Optimus and AOE Optimus.
This is the only photo I got on my phone. My sister took the rest.
The free gift. Comes in a nice little box. AOE Optimus on one side and G1 Optimus on the other.
They also have the AOE Generations Voyagers instock. Quite a few of each, and at the front of the store with the rest of the AOE stuff. Picked up Optimus for myself. Didn't much of the Deluxes. Saw a Crosshairs and a Bumblebee. No Scorn or Slug.
Voyagers are in tru chester. Theres one grimlock and optimus left.
Judt got grimlock for now. Hes not bad but maybe i should have got optimus.
