    They have different discounts for different brands, 20 for tfs, 10 for Lego. Some stuff was up to 30 so if you have kids you could probably do well out of it.

    nothing really - There is (or was on Friday) 1 of the Platinum Autobot heroes sets, a lot of TLK Dinobots and a shelf full of TR Twinferno and Broadside.

    I managed to get a masterpiece bumblebee at the croydon toys r us, cost £40

    They had twinferno, cosmos and seapray and a couple of titan masters from Titans return.

    They had various other movie and other TF bits, but they arent my thing so didnt pay much attention

    It was really sad to think that will be the last time I will ever go into Toys R Us

    Nothing exciting was there yesterday, The TF aisle at the front of the store was pretty much replaced with girl stuff (bar the all spark tlk things)

    The tf section facing the lego had an ungodly amount of rid stuff with a few prime masters hanging about, the section next to marvel had shrunk to one little section and had some tlk things, the only thing of interest was Deluxe Bee but i didn't see the point of getting him when we will be getting the Studio series soon.

    Was a shame really, hoped it would do well after Christmas, looks like Smyths will probably get the exclusive stuff from now on.

    In all honesty Smyths where I got most of my stuff anyway. Very rarely got stuff from TRU, only tended to be when Smyths didn't have it or when they got it first. Smyths is closer to me so yeah...

    There's one in Salisbury. You're in the middle of a Smyths-shaped black hole.

    Either that, or they'll all become pound lands like last time a major retailer went under. ;)

    Popped into Bristol FP today and noticed they've got in POTP wave 1 voyagers and leaders - there were still x2 of each when I was there, but I expect at least some sold later in the day. Voyagers £29.99, Leaders £54.99.

    I doubt this will happen. Wikinsons kind of taken on much of the role of woolworthes except say as many toys and music they sell quite a bit similar. Hell they are probably struggling too.

    I mean it would be nice to see them. But they would have to be so on it and supply things people want.
