    I know I'm the other side of the country but the only place I ever saw them was in Hamleys, I know some people said ASDA had them but I never saw any and I checked loads. :(  glad I grabbed the ones I saw when i did as I never saw any other Prime Masters again.

    I don't get why their distribution is so bad

    ASDA didn't seem to differentiate between Prime & Titan Masters, that might be a part of it. The Bradford ASDA Living had a metric fuckton of Wave 1 Titan Masters out right through into Power of the Primes, I never saw any Prime Masters in there where they were definitely stocked at the Leeds Crown Point ASDA Living. When ASDA dropped them to £3.70 Leeds Living is where I managed to nab a Metalhawk & some Skullgrins for customising, I'd also tried the large ASDA superstore at Owlcotes (Pudsey, near Leeds) but all that was left was the sale price shelf marking which had the discount price but read Titan Masters not Prime Masters.
    As they didn't differentiate between them I reckon stores where the Titan Masters didn't shift so well just didn't bother getting them in stock.

    They flashed through months ago and I was lucky enough to get them. I've only seen wave 1 and Moonracer in there since.

    Having given up on Tesco and Asda I decided yesterday to see what my local sainsburys had in store .

    It was much better and was I able to pick up crash combiners of Bisk and Saberhorn I found a TLK Dragon Storm legion figure I did not know existed .

    Not only was he highly detailed and beautifully painted for such a small figure ... he only cost me £4 .

    Oh I saw Cyberverse Ultra Grimlock and Starscream in Portrack Lane Smyths yesterday. Didn't have my phone with me to take a pic unfortunately.

    Saw TLK Optimus Voice Changer Helmets in Great Yarmouth Home Bargains for £14.99. Weren't they originally some horrifying price like £80?

    I really hope they get the Megatron mask as I've been waiting for that to be reduced for a while.

    Tesco Hucknall had Cyberverse one step changers Blurr, Bumblebee and Soundwave tonight but no price.

    They had found some TLK legion Bumblebee to go with the 5 Grimlocks as well as a RID Legion Bumblebee.

    Forgot to post these fellas which I found in Brand Max in Shirebrook (Sports Direct's version of TK Maxx) on Sunday.

    Has anyone been up to the Leicester Smyths recently ? Just wondering as I’ve just checked their website and apparently every single POTP deluxe is not in stock bar 1 Dreadwind which is odd as I doubt half of their transformers section Is empty

    A lot of Smyths seem to just have RiD, movie stuff, rescue bots, maybe some of the new Cyberverse, and of course lots of PotP Starscream/Grimlock. Seems very common for them to have no PotP deluxes at all at the moment.

    Not sure if this has been picked up on before but Amazon UK have Wave 2 Studio Series Voyagers and deluxes up for varying prices, Megatron is just over £30, Jazz £22, Lockdown £24 and Brawl £35, rather bizarrely.

    Yup, And with the Novastar listing being dropped from their website and Wave 2 Deluxes appearing in-(some)stores with spartan-seeming online stock, it's not looking good for the Collector-focussed line on UK store shelves, is it?

    I said I wouldn't buy any more tfs for a while after TF Nation. Then I picked up TR Wingspan on a Facebook sales post. But that's it. Until I grabbed POTP Inferno from Smyths crown point Leeds. But that's it for now....I'm pretty sure...
