Yup, that's me jiggered too!
Called Toymaster in Morpeth today - they have only TLK Grimlock, Prime, Slug and Drift. Apparently they are having a restock at the end of January but they don't usually get any new transformers until 'after the show in May'. Whatever that means
There were a couple of Six Shots in B&M Old Kent Road last night – no price label, but I imagine they're going for the £15 reported elsewhere.
I've already got him so I left with three TLK Legion figures instead, for £2.99 each: Dragonstorm, Barricade and Hound. Absolutely LOVE Dragonstorm. Lovely deco and looks great in both modes. Superb for that price.
Also picked up TLK Legion Megatron from Toys R Us Old Kent Road. Quite pricey in comparison: £6.39 down from the regular price of £7.99. Stock is 20% off thanks to the closing down sale. Terribly sad in there.
Not much else re: Transformers in there. The main TF section has been cleared out, it just seems to be the small section at the front of the store. Saw Infernocus for £16 after discount. Generations-wise there was Twinferno and Triggerhappy for about £14 each after discount (I think). Got Cosmos for a mate for £8.
If anyone has space for that enormous Star Wars Black Series TIE Fighter it can now be yours for less than £50.
It means they haven't a clue!
There's a nugget of truth in there though, generally new UK stock shows up late Jan/early Feb post toyfair. A comparable situation would be in 2011 when we got to around this point in the year and RTS Windcharger & the Legends suddenly showed up in ASDA before a US release - which in the end never happened!

Might be worth keeping an eye on the Supermarkets for them getting new stock if Legends w2 are in the distribution system.
IIRC a similar thing happened with the Titanmasters for Titans Return, with Wave 2 hitting shortly after Wave 1 - before in many places.
Stupid prices alert! Wandsworth Entertainer has just jacked their Legends prices to £14 - no wonder they still had the POTP lads sitting there!
We might be in for more chancing their arms to see what sticks if that's repeated.
There's some posts above where they're tagged at something like that but ring up at £11
Still says £11 on the web (not in stock) Transformers Generations Power of the Primes Legends Class - Beachcomber - The Entertainer
Just popped into Smyths in Colchester... have they been ransacked or something? The same old overpriced Wave 4 TR deluxes and tonnes of crash combiners but i've never seen the place so devoid of stock before.
Oxford ToysRUs - nothing new to my eyes, unless you still haven't picked up a Brawn/Roadburn. They do have the G2 Primus for £50 (I was tempted, but didn't really have a way to carry it home) and Trypticon for £99 though
For anyone who hasn't got Voyager Hound (like me) he's on a massive offer on Amazon.com. It makes him under £14 shipped to the UK.
Thanks to tfu.info for posting the price on twitter.
that's a phenomenal deal! - thanks for the heads up
Absolutely no Sixshots or Sky Shadows in Bulwell B&M - just a load of CW Skywarp. That's now both Hucknall and Bulwell as well as Newark's which don't have them.
I feel as though they are avoiding Nottinghamshire on a whole!
For those who don't fancy running around:
POTP Legends Wave 2 preorder at IDToys
Transformers Power of the Primes Legends Wave 2 Set of 3
Yep, I ordered from there yesterday, I don't mind paying a bit extra for the convenience...
FP Bristol have got the PotP Prime Masters wave 1 in. 1x Micronus, 1x Liege Maximo, 6x Vector Prime (@ ~11AM today) - all £7.99 each.
Decided against buying any.
They've still got some TR Misfires, Hot Rods, Windblades & Twinfernos too.
Well spaff on my ring piece and call me Dawn, £8 for TR Topspin, Kup et al at MK Tesco? Don’t mind if I do.
Oh yeah! I saw those in Yate recently but forgot to post about them... Sorry!
Kings Meadow Tesco in Reading have TR Astrotrain and Alpha Trion for £8.45 a throw, picked up A3 at that price
If anyone could grab me the two duocons I’d be well greatfull, I’d even along tounaome extra cash for the effort
Went into the Toymaster in Leigh today and all they had was Cosmos, Seaspray and a few deluxe Titans return figures. B&M had sod all.
Hucknall Tesco have finally reduced the TLK deluxe bit it's royally pissed me off as the Sqweeks that I had my eye on has gone. So has Steelbane and Drift to be replaced by a solitary Bumblebee which wasn't there before.
First world problems, eh?
They also had TLK voyager OP and Grimlock reduced to £15, those crap flip down mask things for £6.50 as well as 1 step Megatron for £3 and change.
Forgot to mention yesterday that Bulwell B&M had TLK one step Cogman for £3.99 (never seen him before). They also had Scorn and maybe Drift too
