    Point taken. Just ordered a Kickback from eBay. I can chance it with Gnaw but NEEDS a kickback to go with Bombshell and Shrapnel.

    Of course this means he'll turn up within the next 3 days.

    Amesbury B&M have what appears to be 2 cases of the 1st CW Autobot car wave and 2 each of Onslaught & Scattorshot. Legends-wise I thinke there was Groove, Skywarp & Warpath. Buzzsaw and Viper went home with me.

    The lack of a mass distribution for w2 Legends makes a w3 release more likely. W2 shelfwarming could have killed w3 dead.

    Kapow have a set of all 3 for £40

    Tesco have reduced that 6-pack of 1-steps to 19-80 online (so order it and get it sent to your local 'Express' for the ultimate laziness), as myself and the boy like our simples (simples!), and I only have 2 of them so far, I shall be collecting mine later, possibly avec (crap) dog.

    Oh, and Fort Max has disappeared from their online store, does anyone have the order number to attempt a 'order on the off-chance' endeavour?
    Dankally.

    We can hope. It didn't take Wave 2 to kill Legnds in this Country, Wave 1 is still doing a fine job of that in every TRU I've been in. Wheelie and Rewind, far from being Gold have proven to be a bit of a Peghog.

    Even Colliers Wood which has nothing else TR related oft has a full peg and a half of Wave 1.

    Thanks A bunch Wheelie.

    I registered for a stock alert from Tesco, and they sent me this email the other day:

    "Sorry, but the following product is no longer available to buy.
    Transformers Titan Returns Fortress Maximus
    Catalogue No: 759-4531
    We've therefore cancelled your stock alert."

    The SDCC version is available from A1 Toys for the same price though:

    SDCC 2016 Exclusive Fortress Maximus - Transformers - Exclusives

    B+M Dovercourt have the wave 3(?) Minicons in. The wave with swelter, hammer, back and blue slipstream in, all imported by our friends at STL. Had no price on them, but neither did the legends or deluxes. Legends they had groove, hot rod and Skywarp. I took the only viper. Deluxes had about two prowls and a mirage. Got the only Ironhide. :D

    Popped into Warrington Toys R Us after work and for once I hit the jackpot! Voyager TR Megatron and Optimus, two of each. All wave 3 Deluxes plenty of all, counted about 5 Hot Rod's, 4 Twinferno's, about 2 Break/Getaways and a few Triggerhappy's.

    Left with a Megatron and Twinferno. Really like Hot Rod in package, but the one I ordered online (that I thought would be in hand earlier than retail release) should arrive either tomorrow or wednesday hopefully.

    They have re-arranged the Transformers Section but it is still in the same place. They've added more shelves and put the Premium boxsets on them (Trypticon, the coneheads, Classics OP/Megs set).

    I have a Samsung and it usually turns mine sideways.
    How much are the voyagers in the entertainer?
