    It doesn't seem like it. Unless they turn up as grey imports like the Thrillling 30 Voyagers at some point, but I wouldn't bank on that.

    So I spotted 14 Brainstorms at TJ Hughes Liverpool today, 14 of the damn things, I don't think I counted all of them.

    Devastator at around 80 pound? Deal!

    There's a TJ Hughes in Eastbourne. Don't know if they do toys, but if B&M Poole haven't got any Brainstorms by Friday, it seems a good spot to try.

    Eastbourne T J Hughes did have a toy department when I was there last year, don't know if they will have the same stock as other branches though

    Paint the blue into white and you have Red Alert.

    Cannot believe that Gen Brainstorm is shelfwarming after everyone was crying out for one. Even Hucknall B&M have one in and that is saying something as this was the 1st restock since the Gen voyagers first started appearing.

    And yet no Brainstorm in either of the B&Ms I've been in (Leyton and Old Kent Road) recently, or any TRU I've been in either. At £13 I would pick up a spare. It seems geographical distribution is up the pictures as usual.

    I think a lot of people gave in and shelled out an extortionate amount of money for him. I know I did. Gutted.

    Went into B&M Biddulph on a whim. While I was standing there with my brother talking about what they had, some kid was standing there in the aisle by us. He sorta looked at the toys a bit, then while I was looking at a Brainstorm he pulled a Jetfire down off the shelf. At first I was kinda pleased to see a kid his age interested in a Generations toy, but then he held it out to us as if he meant 'for you'. I told him 'Aww, thanks, but that one's kind of expensive.'

    He seemed disappointed as he put it back on the shelf. Still, I ended up buying a Brainstorm, leaving another, a Whirl and a Roadbuster.

    I think the best outcome for us UK folk in terms of CW Wave 2 is if wherever B&M gets their stock in grey-imports them. CW Deluxes at £8 each... we can dream, eh?

    Shelfwarming everywhere except the one town I could guarantee them a sale! Don't think Manning's Heath will ever get them as they've reduced their Voyagers to just one facing now.

    TRU Poole must be the only one without CW wave 4. Was also hoping they might finally have some Force Awakens Black series stuff, but to no avail.

    Fingers crossed for TJ Hughes tomorrow.

    Then you, Sir, are a legend! You may have single-handedly made Orbital into my favourite shop in Central London. I hope you got a promotion, or a pay rise or something?

    Indeed. Great Yarmouth B&M currently have four Brainstorms, I just hope something similar eventually happens with Doubledealer.
    Yeah, I saw CW First Aid in Yarmouth TK Maxx about a week ago.
