    Asda Portrack Lane had the wave 3 Titans Deluxes on the shelf, they had 3 hot rods, 2 triggerhappy's, and twinfernos and a getway. I took nothing as I have Twinferno and Triggerhappy already and the other two don;t interest me at £19.

    ASDA Gravesend has had a big stock up on Transformers by the look of it. Titan Returns legends and deluxe wave 3, RID crash combiners, and one of the 5 packs of the RID die cast figs. They look pretty good so looking forward to how the TLK ones turn out. Not sure if those Rescue Bots have been seen here yet. Wish I picked up legends Bumblebee now. I don't really collect G1/Generations but he looks good for a smaller figure. IMG_0368.JPG

    A little late but @Nevermore's RiD Archive doesn't have a confirmed UK store sighting for these toys.

    The Strongarm & Sideswipe Minicon battlepacks showed up on a catalogue's website waaay back in August:

    And on the Entertainer's website in Jan:

    There's been a couple of instore sightings since then:

    But nobody's grabbed an instore picture till now. Kingston Entertainer this morning:

    ASDA Colchester has followed the trend, with a rather more impressive TF display, I have not seen the ickle Rescue animals before, cute!
    I picked up a Gnaw, first time I have seen one in the flesh, they have 2 left of each in that wave, sure I will buckle for Bee next time.....

    £10.66 as per price tag in the picture.

    Slightly confusingly the earlier assortment is nearby for £8!

    Yeah, I was just hoping on the offchance. I've almost ordered Strongarm from the Entertainer but can't really think of anything else to make up the order.

    Would seem so. Wave 3 was in shops before far-East importers had them but not this time so, normal service resumed.

    First toy run in ages yesterday to my local Big Sainsburys (Wandsworth) and they had......one CW Brawl and a restock of CW Cyclonus and Hot Spot - five each of the Buggers at £23.

    Yes, that's just what everyone needs.

    The Entertainer over the road had TR Optimus and Megatron at £21.60 which seems an oddly specific price. And TR Wave 2 Dlx refugees at the comedy price of £23. That's not going to fly Sonny.

    They are pretty determined to keep trying these stupid, Line killing price points it seems.

    They are that price because they are on sale, 20% off. They are normally £27, which is ridiculously overpriced. I paid double that to get 3 deluxes and a voyager from Toys R Us (albeit on sale)
