Sainsbury's are having their toy sale. Minimum of 20% off and upto 50% off on ALL toys.
Pentwyn B&M - 5 Roadbusters and a Jetfire, BUT - they have the Power Attackers including Galvatron, Lockdown, Optimus, Snarl and Slug, which are lesser spotted here unless you manage to find them on sale in Smyths, for £5.99 each. Not a bad deal.
Found this in Tesco this morning:
Also, although not TF-related, I was looking for some cheap Lego baseboards and found a nice compatible green one from a line called 'Blox' in Wilkinsons 28x56 pegs in size for £3.50. Does the job nicely without breaking the bank and a handy size if you wanted to build a little town out of a few of the small Lego shop sets. I might just buy a few more of these boards.
£6 postage and £5 for each minicon wouldn't even qualify for customs duty as long as you buy each one separate
What might this new store be called? Actually forget "might", what IS it called? Is it an indie?
yeah got RID Alpine Sideswipe..... Nah RED ALERT in there for £3.50 earlier
My leader thundercracker has only just been shipped from Amazon.com n I ordered it over a week ago.....wtf so they half the price n the service it seems
It's called The Toy Store. Looks too spanky to be an indie, as we think of them. It's for Oxford St tourists who are Christmas shopping and don't know the correct price of things.
Lego Simpsons' house, £220, for example.
Seems it's a well established Saudi company.

Going for the Hamley's market.
I really wish I'd not seen this. I went to check out their sale and ended up buying six Lego sets from various stores. Although compare prices in-store with Asda's toy sale because some sets are slightly cheaper in there than in the Sainsburys sale, even if it's only by like 40p.
With regards to TF stuff in the sale, Great Yarmouths Sainsburys had RID One-Steps down to £7.49. Was almost tempted to spring for the repaints of Grimlock and Strongarm. They also had that huge transforming simple RID Bumblebee for around £34, down from £49.99.
In Great Yarmouth B&M I spotted that the basic TF Hero Mashers have been further reduced to £3.99 each.
Thanks for the tip-off! I shall keep an eye out.
As for Sainsbury's, I went to a couple of our 'local' stores yesterday and they had been stripped. However, one had some RID TFs still and the other had just the 1st wave of the TF Mashers. I think they were £7-something.
I can advise that Transformers Combiner Wars Wave 4 has been distributed to Toys R Us at the beginning of this week. Please contact them for more information about when stock will be on the shelves."
May aswell go ask your local TRU's if they have any Combiner Wars in the back and they might bring this out to you. Gonna try this later so, wish me luck?
Good news. Let us know how that goes. I'll have a look in a TRU tomorrow.
So, with Hasbro UK's record for accuracy, that means we'll soon have either Wave 5 or the Stunticons cropping up in TRU UK.
Wave 4 Found at Liverpool One TRU, Minus Ironhide (Apparently sold out) and Minus white prime
Also with new paper instructions
B.B got con Bots £1 each..
oh hell yea
Thanks for the heads up!! I picked up Prowl and Sunstreaker from TRU Cribbs Causeway Bristol. I will pick up others when on sale. At least one of each left on the shelf.
Hucknall B&M have 1 each of Roadbuster, Whirl and Brainstorm. However, the Hero Mashers are still marked up at £6.99
Wilkos across from it had a lonely Rhinox. They still had quite a few BH Legions in front of Commander Unicron Megs and Bludgeon. No price for the Legions but the Commamders were £5.
No wave 4 combiners in Poole TRU. Was hoping to grab Mirage. Still no Brainstorm in Manning's Heath B&M.
If for any reason this changes tomorrow (I know there's a couple other posters in the Poole area) would love a heads-up as I'm not planning on checking again til Friday.
