    Found a lone Dragonstorm in B&M Dumbarton so bought him

    Still some TR Gnaws, TR SixShots and a TR Kup. Plenty of TLK Legion and Leader Primes.

    Yeah £5.99. I'd all but given up on them appearing here after reading that they, along with their shelf labels had been and gone elsewhere. Just waiting for the Legends now!

    I nipped into Golden Square’s Entertainer yesterday, no POTP. They did have a bunch of Sky Shadows for £27, and the TLK Leader Megatron for £32, which was slightly tempting. Really surprised no one’s had the POTP Leaders in yet, didn’t expect Smyths to get the Studio Series before them.

    Ah bother, that explains a lot. Might need to head down to Warrington’s TRU to see if they’ve got any before they close.

    I've been checking every few days to at least once a week and they've had absolutely no potp of any size in at any of the times I have been there.

    Starting to wonder now, if with the impending and possible closure of TRU's are they even likely to catch up with other TRU stores and finally get any potp in?

    Can’t imagine they’ll be getting many deliveries in now that administration is under way. I’d recommend checking The Entertainer and Smyths in the meantime

    The Nottingham Robot Company site also has the POTP leaders for £50 a pop, which is slightly tempting (although I’m torn between that and the Studio Series now) and Amazon have also been updating with the new POTP figures (no Optimus sadly, but they have got Rodimus.)

    Yeah Warrington Entertainer got the potp legends in early December I think but I don't think they've had them in since. None of the 3 Asda's have had the Prime Masters in (unless they've had them in the last week and a half as I got tired of checking them) and TRU has been a bust every time. Checked Smyths last Friday and they only had potp Grimlock and Starscream.

    When potp was beginning to see release, I limited myself after buying Grimmy and Starscream online that I would only purchase figures upon seeing them in hand. After buying Windcharger/Slash/Beachcomber in store I have since gone back on my limitations and bought all wave 1 Deluxes online after failing to find any of them in store haha :rolleyes:  I keep telling myself that I 100% am going to wait til I see Rodimus in hand before deciding if I want him as he just doesn't fit in scale wise with my other figures. I was going to try and limit myself to only buying wave 2 onwards in store, though I have my doubts if I'll stick to it due to how difficult wave 1 has been for me :oops:

    Forbidden Planet has had a couple of batches of POTP deluxes, legends and prime masters (or whatever the decoy suits are called). I heard rumour of them having had wave 1 voyagers too, but I didn't see any in person.
