    Bradford TRU still had the single Sentinel I left there last time, now nestled amongst the CW Voyagers and some TR Wave 1 Legends as well as CW Legends. ASDA Living a single remaining Clobber and a smattering of Legends including some TR Wave 1 too.

    So I am after Ratchet from Robots in Disguise Warrior Class wave 8, due September. Was reading somewhere that RID figures are on their way out...but warrior class figures like this still get quite major coverage at Smyths/TRU right?

    I certainly hope so, because if I don't get warrior class Bisk I swear to God i'll kill again.

    Could anyone give me the EAN barcodes for the new Clash of the Transformers Warriors (Power Surge Optimus Prime, Paralon and Starscream), specifically the UK TRU releases?

    If I'm not mistaken, they should all have the same barcode.

    No RID Starscream and co. in TRU Basildon! The whole store was in disarray though to find any one to look out the back! ASDA Eastgate looks to be resetting their toy aisle in the next week too (had the stock layout sheets up) but there seemed to be a distinct lack of Transformers on them - but time will tell!

    If it's like the other ASDA toy rotations, then Transformers will be getting a space equivalent to what the Marvel section currently has, and also right beside it.

    I've been to 6 ASDA in the last two weeks and they've all been laid out like that.

    TRU Enfield report:

    Titans Return Optimus Prime was there, but no Blaster or Soundwave. Also the small TR head things, and the Legends Wheelie, Rewind and the ugly orange bird.

    RiD Starscream and Paralon were also there (at £19.99). There were three Starscreams, but only two now.

    Nothing like that on their layout sheets unfortunately! There were only 3 transformers items listed and one of them was rescue bots, right down the bottom of the new Marvel layout - but things can change once they actually sort things out I'm sure! There's always been room for Transformers there, although it has been slipping of late!

    Yeah I was in there in the middle of last week total ghost town.

    The Pips Hill one and Shoeburyness were no better. Its a anti-southeast Essex conspiracy I tell you!

    Waiting for tesco and sainsburys to come online in the tr sweep stakes. Correct me if i am wrong but we are still waiting for them to have anything tr.

    Have yet to see hardhead in the shop, saw wheelie yesterday and the masters wave 2, no deluxe tags on the shelves, in my asda but £13 for a legend f-that and need to pysch myself up to pay £6 for a master. I will wait alittle more. Need deals on these things...

    Hopefully won't regret anything...

    The way Smyths have been restocking TR Wave 1 Deluxes and ASDA seemingly joining the fray has me thinking it may turn out to be easy to pick 'em up at seasonal sale prices and that finding Wave 2 (at least on-shelf here) will be the issue.

    AFAIK you're on the money about Sainsbugs & Tesco, the last time I checked local Sainsbugs stores the TF-carrying ones had the CW Wave 4 Bots and some Combaticons (I want to say Wave 5?) and the odd CW voyager (they have stocked CW Legends). The Tescos nearest my locale seem to be only carrying NuRID, and not a lot of 'em in my experience.

    Still can't quite get my head around TRU being a cheaper place to pick up TFs than a mainstream Supermarket! What happened to Bulk Buying/Loss Leading, eh?

    Popped to Rayleigh Smyths, full lot of Wave 1 TR Deluxes, plenty of Galvatron/Sentinel/OP/Blaster and Soundwaves. Nothing notable in RiD (one BS Drift). Oh, the whole lot has been moved from their normal position to an end cap at the back of the store: don't panic!

    Sainsbury's around the corner had Sweet FA, so don't bother.

    Really we need strong stocks of deluxe wave 1 and 2 because those are most the main HMs. Hopefully we get that and hopefully Tesco and Sainsburys get some to help scoring sale prices. Need wave 1 voyagers, i want to be tempted by galvatron...

    Tesco and Sainsburys leaving it late, maybe that is deliberate ploy on their part.
    Asda have had quite allot of new toys, they had Batman mighty minis series 4 a month ago which i indulged and i also notice they have that lovelly double ecto 1 hotwheels set at the mo... Good one of them is somewhere on the ball.
    Right going to hit TRU tomorrow, come on baby lol.
