    Yes, I’m that old! Oh I can vividly recall the Shop, and it’s interior. Truely TF heaven for a young lad that I was. Just had a quick google and found a photo of it. Just as I remember ^_^ ah to think instead of one of the base TFs I was going to pick up some figure called a Jet Fire! It was birthday money so one or tuther each year.

    Never came across any Gnaws anywhere Death Of Prime, so pleased you got me one.

    Smyths in Salford was shite today. In terms of TF collectors. Good place for a toy shop as they had very little to show in terms of figures. The TF section has shrank which I didn’t think it could in a smaller store like it is. No Seige, one Voyager, Inferno (about 5 units) one box of Snarl/Moon/Black and more Studio Voyager/Deluxe. And a shit ton of Squeeks heads filling up the space

    Alas no new TFs in Kingston tonight when I looked on my way back from the hospital. Had hoped for Siege but alas Bentalls didn't deliver. Someone had snatched the Bludgeon since my last visit and just Sludge & Snarl remained from w3r1. Plenty of Cyberverse and Studio Series

    Entertainer had the SW: Solo 3 3/4 inch figures which I'd not seen at UK retail previously. Surely someone told Hasbro UK that the film, and thus the toys, had been pulled forward 6 months?

    Popped into Salisbury Home Bargains at lunchtime, they had 2x each of Krok, Quake and Twinferno. First time I’ve seen Quake in person, but wasn’t impressed enough to buy...

    Pretty impressed by Fenwicks in Colchester, the smaller Movie range (Bee etc.) they have re-stocked the POTP wave 2 Dinos, and most of the movie stuff.

    I was in the St Helens branch late Wednesday & there was none there, looked like they hadn’t even got any Siege figures in yet. If I go later I’ll have another check though, hopefully they’ll get ‘some’ in before Christmas!

    That'd be the one. Never managed to get there though. It's not a Toy Barnhaus. It's Toy Town (I think) so doubtful it'llhave anything

    Bought the set that includes the ice cream unicorn and I kind of feel like I've bought all that I need of these. They are cute and I can see them appealing to a certain type of collector, but these aren't for me.

    there are multiple sets with the unicone.
    I bought different 5-packs for my 2 little brothers for Christmas, and they're both getting that one.

    Bury Smyths had both 8-packs and 5-packs of Botbots priced at £9.99 tonight, and they honoured the incorrect price when the 8-packs rang up at £14.99. Might be worth seeing if they've corrected the mistake or not tomorrow.

    Preordered SixGun from kapowtoys. Works out 20.50 with shipping which is the cheapest I have seen.

    All of wave 2 is up on their site. Only downside is you have to by both sets of micro masters/cassettes together

    Finally nipped into Smyths St. Helens again. They have POTP Moonracer and the Studio Series DOTM Ratchet and Shadow Raider. Couldn’t see any VW Bees tho. A few Botbots packs too.

    So better to preorder both then cause getting them as singles upon release will be like finding Unicorn poo
