    They were £24.99 in Leyton and Old Kent Road B&Ms initially and then went to a tenner at various times when the boxes had been mauled to near unsellable condition. Still one Jetfire in Old Kent. No Starscream or others when I looked this last weekend. London as usual bringing up the rear.

    If I see a Smokescreen I may pick up for yet another custom. If.

    No Seekers, RiD Minicon armour packs or minicon deployers in Amesbury B&M.

    There is however, a couple of sets of the Sky Reign CW limbs. Also for just £3, a really cheap 3 3/4" soldier action figure with what appears to be a KO of the original G I Joe Fang helicopter...

    Checked in at Cribbs Causeway today...

    Toys R Us had an ever dwindling shelf space being slowly overrun by Marvel stuff, I believe. Still has the ridiculously priced Platinum Sets (Autobot Heroes £199.99, One Shall Stand One Shall Fall £99.99) amongst some £20 Warrior Class figures. They also had Legends Wreck Gar and Wheelie at £5.99 each, according to the tag...next to Titan Masters for the same price!
    They only had one Voyager Optimus and one Voyager Megatron at the reduced price of £16.49, but Megatron is now sat at home beside me (had some horrible excess plastic stopping the arm from locking though). Leader Soundwave was there too.

    Smyths had plenty of cheapo Combiner Force Warriors at £12.49 each, CW Wave 5 Voyagers at £9.99 each and Titans Return Voyagers at £18.99. Only Generations deluxes were Scourge and Highbrow (hah) at £14.99 a pop.

    Asda is a barren wasteland, but they had Rouge One on DVD so all is forgiven.

    B&M had that RiD Sideswipe vs Anvil floating around for some acceptable price under a tenner, and plenty of those awful "Robot Heroes" combiners.
    Also £25 Skywarps.

    I really hope TR Wave 4 materialises soon. Also surprised at no apparent TLK street date breakages. How polite. Grr.

    TRU in Stirling had a good selection of TR Deluxes reduced to £12.49 (I noticed Hot Rod, Getaway, Scourge, Doublecross, Triggerhappy) yesterday. Otherwise shelves full of overpriced RID figures, with poor variety.

    Broadside and Sky Shadow have been removed from the Smyths website! Yay.

    I mean, I don't want either of them, but the Deluxes are what I'm concerned about. Hoping Wave 4 doesn't go the way of Combiner Wars Wave 2 and that RiD Wave with Bisk and Ratchet.
    Then again, they'll probably turn up at B&M in a years time anyway.

    Its annoying for me because one of the main ones I want from this wave is Broadside; I don't know what it is about it, but I just need to have it. Maybe because I am going for all the triple changes.

    Maybe it's your innate sense of TF Awesomeness which his Sidesness has in SPADES!

    I couldn't risk my final Wrecker getting Wave-skipped but I do hope he gets on UK shelves, this figure needs all the love it can get!

    Smyth's have popped TLK Voyager Optimus onto their website for £32.99 (pfft!). Good job he's out of stock, or I'd have nabbed one and spent the night hating my lack of plastic-crack restraint.

    Stock expected from the 24th April, apparently.

    I find it almost incredible that when you look up "transformers" on Forbidden Planet's website, it says there are 147 results that are actually toys, but as soon as you apply the "in stock" filter, it magically decreases to three! The only things in stock are Fort Max, Liokaiser and Year of the Goat Optimus Prime.

    I was out and about Portsmouth way so...

    B&M Fareham had the usual Sky Reign limbs but also those oversized brightly-coloured CW Protectobot knock offs (of Rook, Firstaid, Streetwise sort of things) all 3.

    Smyths Fareham had TR HotRod & Firedrive reduced to £14.99, Voyager TR Optimus Prime & Diac reduced to £18.99 and CW Scattershot reduced to £10.

    B&M Portsmouth had the usual Sky Reign limbs, the oversized CW KOs but also the big Skywarp without price, alas no Starscream.

    So, highlights of a quick sweep of west Ipswich today:

    TRU: TR Ravage and TR Laserbeak still, plus CW Buzzsaw. TR Bumblebee and TR Kickback also (no Gnaw). TR Triggerhappy and TR Doublecross reduced to £12.49. TR Megatron, seemingly at £24.99. Pricing error?

    Copdock Tesco: No TR at all.

    Whitehouse Asda: TR Hot Rod, Triggerhappy and Breakaway. The only Breakaway came away with me. Multiples of TR Bumblebee, 1x TR Kickback, 3x TR Gnaw (of which one came away with me).

    If I remember correctly my CW Blackjack had the same kind of thing.
