    Asda Cribbs Causeway have TR Titan Masters Wave 2, Legends Wave 1 and Deluxe, two each of Blurr and Skullcruncher plus one of Scourge. Display is now the opposite side of the aisle just past the Lego display.

    TRU have yet another case of TR Wave 1 Legends plus another MP Bumblebee to keep the other two company (NEVERMORE - barcode will be sent shortly). They also had two of the huge RID Bumblebee's to go out, didn't see a price.

    Smyths just had TR Wave 1 Leaders.

    Smyths Cheltenham - I picked up the only deluxe (Skullsmasher). Beyond that there was only a Sentinel Prime and a lot of RiD. All the discounted Ultra Magnuses and Combiner War torsos have gone even.

    Thanks for that, I grabbed Apeface and Brawn. Still Clobber and Skytread left there. Popped into smyths too while I was there, definitely no wave two in the Thurrock branch yet.

    Update: Got what I wanted, thanks!


    I gotta say this: You Brits are continue to be some of the nicest folks I've met online. :) 

    Never ever minding this annoying foreigner repeatedly interrupting your domestic sightings thread, always cooperative, never questioning my fields of interest... Whenever someone tells me that the British allegedly don't like us Germans, I respond with "you met the wrong people, obviously."

    Andover ASDA has re-arranged the toy shelves. No CW or TR (or any space for them). Just some RiD one step changers, RiD Warriors (Windblade & Scorponok) and space for RiD Power Surgers (or something like that).

    Can confirm TR Soundwave at both Leeds Smyths, sadly no Astrotrains as yet, though Kirkstall had the ladders out next to the TF display and only a smattering of Sentinels so knowing my luck some are due to be put out!

    I was actually in there at lunchtime Seeaich and didn't see Soundwave so they must have put their stock out in the afternoon. Damn them.

    If you spot any Astrotrains let me know mate and I'll keep an eye out as well! I wasn't going to bother with him but the video reviews have turned my head.

    I'll probably make a trip Sat/Sun this weekend. Space Choo Choo is a must, especially with an Octane/Tankor in the works. Finally all three Con Triple Changers at Voyager scale. If I see him I shall give you the nod. :thumb

    Right, so to make sure I've got this right - Asda and Smyths are the best bet for Wave 1 Titans Return deluxes? And Wave 2 isn't out yet?

    Sounds about right, ASDA seem to have gone straight to the Wave 2 Titanmasters and now Smyths seem to be getting in the Wave 2 Voyagers (listed on site as due in stock) and Wave 2 Leader Soundwave (who going by my experience seems is either single packed in-case or maybe packed with Blaster, as there were more Blasters and fewer PMOPs at Crown Point Smyths when I nabbed my Sounders) but both are still on Wave 1 deluxes so far.

    Pity you cant actually order from their site, since I dont have a local branch (which is rather aggravating, to tell you the truth)..

    Excellent news. Went after work yesterday and Soundwave hadn't appeared on the shelves yet.

    Just been to Wallsend Smyths, they had leader Soundwave, one left that i could see as I took one with me. They also have a few PM prime and Blasters, A Sentinel and Galvatron and also a Scourge, Blurr and Skullsmasher lying on the top of the shelf. I could not see a Hardhead, but I didnt have time for a good look and they appeared to only have on each of them.

    Asda on Coronation Road have restocked the Wave 2 Titan Masters, with enough for two sets. Also a few of the Wave 1 Legends, and some CW Legends on the top shelf (Chop Shop, Shockwave). No Deluxes.
