    Apparently they register as 'out of stock' if there are less than 5 on the shop floor because of the way TRU does it. Acid Storm showed as out of stock everywhere but weeks after this happened I found a couple in TRU Luton.

    You could always try calling them up and asking staff to check the shelves for you?

    Grimlock isn't out here.

    Thanks to all those who have bought some toys off me over the last week and at Auto Assembly yesterday. It was a fantastic day and great to meet fellow fans such as Kit, Steve, Stuart, Matt, Adam and many, many more.

    Still got a lot of stuff to go, so if you're interested please check out the following thread: http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/items...sformers-sales-thread-everything-must-go.html

    Message me via this site or email me at [email protected] and I'll be more than happy to oblige you. Ta!

    MP Sunstorm is about £75 (including shipping) and MP Prowl is about £63.50 - so Sunstorm is fairly well priced but Prowl is rather expensive! D:

    Toys R Us has almost nothing I want to click and collect.

    I'm tempted to get the Leader Optimus from Argos, they bumped £6 off his price. Drop £20 and you got a deal Argos.

    Who'd have thought that we'd be (potentially) able to walk into an Asda and buy recolours of Beast Wars figures in the space year 2014? I mean, wow.

    I like Beast Wars.

    It's crazy how old the mold is.

    He's like 20... THAT'S OLDER THAN ME!

    I do want to get the Purple Triceratops (Slug?) But idk if I should click and collect again incase another Strafe arrives.

    That might be something TRU.com is preventing you doing... and it might indicate that MP Prowl is supposed to be coming out in the UK, hence you not able to ship it from the US.

    They did that to me with something else... which was out in the UK but was significantly cheaper in the US... Hasbro's Force FX twin Darth Maul Lightsabers?

    I've tried myself and it works fine. Both items will ship to the UK so not sure what you are doing wrong. Make sure you select your country from the basket page and then go to checkout. This forwards the information to iparcel to place your order.

    I really like the Slug and Grim (''He's after me with his huge arms"!), but re-packaging those legends Bee and Prime, ick! Being a boot trawler, I must have at least 10 of each. They could at least have recoloured them, but yes, I will probably spend the cash...I'm so weak.

    Won't work for me. I get "international shipping not offered" however I try to work the various pages or payment methods to get Sunstorm.

    If some are getting them here and others not something is obviously up with their site. It's TRU so somehow I'm hardly surprised.

    Assholes.

    Edit: yep, just tried through someone else on a non-apple platform to get one and they can't either. So, whatever it is, it's not consistent. More assholes...........

    Looks like Evilbay then.
