    Question is if she'll be easy to find for cheaper, what with her being a tail-ender, scalper fodder and possibly only offered by other online retailers as part of a case with figures people already have.

    Kapow Toys still have her at the Sub-RRP price of £17.97, I keep getting tempted grab a third to try a different dye colour on (and see if red plastic plus blue dye equals purple. It's uncertain as green dye made the white and more porous mint green parts of Moonracer a dark teal, not a green/deeper green as one might expect!).

    Got Studio Series Jazz and Lockdown, only one each there, at The Entertainer in Cwmbran. £16ish each! Pics when I'm not on my way to bed.

    Alright, I can't find the receipt, I was drunkish when shopping, as necessary. The claim itself is no proof, but I got deluxe Studio Series 2 bits for £16.80 each. The employee had a go at me because he was presumably hiding them for himself. I was very nice and chuffed, and intimidating. One each of each, but they had them.

    How dare you go into a shop and have the nerve to buy their stock! Did the employee ask if you were local? ;)

    Dunno if it's been mentioned before, but B&M have the TLK Reveal the Shield One-Step six-pack for £29.99. At least the Great Yarmouth branch has.
    Wasn't that an Argos exclusive?

    Also, speaking of Argos, they continue their tradition of getting shit wrong in their catalogues:

    No way. As soon as I leave Bolton to go to University, they start stocking SS Leader Classes. Sod's law.

    Saw the POTP Wave 3 deluxe terrorcons at Portrack Lane Smyths Blot, Sinnertwin and whatever the Terrorcon bird was called. Along with Studio Series Lockdown and Jazz. Might be worth checking your local ones. Didn't have my phone with me so no pics and didn't buy them myself as not interested.

    I was drinking when I found them and forgot where the receipt was. I forgot there was a receipt. I also lost the figures for a bit, then my phone took a shit; but I'm back on the chemical balance and I present you, as long-ago promised...

    Interesting indeed. So I guess there must be an error in the promo materials sent to these companies.

    Unless... Smyths and Argos aren't connected in any way are they? Even if it's just the numpties doing their catalogues.

    Sighting-ish, kinda, sort-of. If you’re into that type of stuff. Morrison’s today.

    Tempting. I'd need to see how it scaled with the Havex stuff though. Not that I have a Range near me anyhow.
    That's the same set that was in Aldi this time last year I think.

    Home Bargains had some Titans Returns deluxe today for £8.99. Twinferno, Krok, Quake & Triggerhappy. No other classes, or anything particularly hard to find, but I picked up another Triggerhappy ‘cause I like the toy :)
