    Went in to our B&M today and they only had the zombie taxi driver. Are they the same line as the terrordogs? Would be interesting to know whether they have any different characters coming.
    They also had a Stay Puft marshmallow man and a double pack of Venkman and Slimer - they look like POP vinyl figure but are die cast.

    Yes I believe they are - my local stores still have the prevous wave that contains Gozer, Walter Peck and slimed Venkman.

    The new wave has The Library Ghost, The Terror Dog and the Taxi Driver. I was in there today as I said and Those Aliens Mini-mates are really worth a look - just so cute ( The Aliens more so than the Humans ).

    My local B&M has had the terror dog and Walter peck at the same time. No library ghost though. That was last week though so could easily have sold them now.

    Easier to show what St Helens Smyths had as of this afternoon. All that has been reported elsewhere (Moonracer etc) picked up Sludge & Snarl. Still some left. No terrorcons.

    Ahh, no way! I’m from St Helens too, I was in there this evening. I didn’t know there was anyone else remotely close who even liked Transformers here! I have seen the Terrorcons in there previously, but didn’t pick them up as I’d already ordered mine online.

    Did someone say they had wave 3 now in a CO Op store ?

    Also is it actually wave One (with Cloudburst) ?

    I think i can answer this before Payres gets here: No metalhawk and skulgrin are packed in with wave2... It's wave2. Clouburst appears in wave1 only.

    Someone did sight wave3, it was through the grapevine rather than a user here.

    I was in Redhill today and stumbled upon a full complement of Siege wave one (minus the leaders of course) at Toy Barnhaus in the Belfry shopping centre.
    Prices, £6 for weapon masters, £11 for Micro Masters, £17 for deluxes and £23 (I think) for the voyagers.

    Thanks for the Toy Planet tip-off, I picked one of each up from their Midco Toys branch in Burton.

    Actually I’m from Widnes (as is Death of Prime in here too) and yes, there are a few Warrington based folk (but they seem nice..) and I tend to cover Widnes through to Manchester for sightings due to moving frequently between the two, occasionally Speke for Smyths but St Helens is better for me (When I was a lad blah blah St Helens blah blah Toy & Hobby, blah blah now an Argos, blah blah bought Scorponok and Metroplex there #mistyeyed #Geewoner )

    Think I’ll check Salford Smyths tomorrow and I must get to an entertainer too.

    Have we had all limbs on the Terrorcons?

    Actually it’s just dawned on me, they had no Seige there!! Already gone perhaps? Like the Prime. Megs is meh

    Oh my god, you remember toy & hobby?! I LOVED that place as a child, nothing was ‘ever’ as exciting a place as going there. I was too young for Scorponok & Metroplex but my earliest memories in that place are of the micromasters & getting the real ghostbusters toys, I wish I could remember it clearer.

    Then I went to ‘Children’s World’ in Warrington for a few years (where I picked up the Micromasters Countdown base) before finding the Toys R’Us there (when I heard it was shutting down I went in specifically to buy a Transformer, was just like old times!)

    I don’t think we got Rippersnapper from PotP Wave 2 but I definitely saw the rest of the Terrorcons there in Wave 3. Let me know if there’s any you’re looking for & I’ll keep an eye out! I don’t think St Helens have had any ‘Siege’ in yet, but I heard Wigan’s Smyths had some in briefly the other week.

    BTW, hi to @Lockdown91 and everyone else in the local area! There’s more of us than I thought (though knowing there’s one more Transfan other than me who’s local was a shock till today ha)

    Picked up from Toy Planet Derby today. They had a few of all size except leaders.
    Also had Cloudburst Titan Master in, among others.

    I live 5 mins away from what used to be toy and hobby. I always had something on a payment plan there as a kid there's probably no shop now that would let you pay off a G2 megatron for £1 a week intrest free.

    If anyone's interested, Argos have reduced the Rescue Bots HQ from £49.99 to £9.99.

    Not a bad gift for young kids/nephews/nieces or grandkids.
