    Finally Smyths in Hedge End Southampton have 1 Siege Ultra Magnus, 1 Siege Megatron and (did have) 1 Siege Cog. I took the Cog away with me, nice.

    No Siege leaders in the lakeside Snyths, they had all the deluxes and voyagers though plus a few studio series deluxes and botbots.

    No Siege leaders in MK Smyths. I got the old “they won’t be on the shelves until the date on our website” line. Hahaha, whatever amateurs.

    Someone on Seibertron claims they work for Smyths, and that stores across the country should expect leaders between 5th and 12th.

    I read that post on seibertron too. From what they said, that would seem like what’s happened. I picked up the seige deluxes about a week ago in the Aberdeen store and they had two of each on the shelf but, as usual the online stock checker said there was only one of each, which reduced to zero after I bought my ones. When I went in on Saturday they had several more deluxes on the shelf though they only had one Shockwave so someone else must’ve bought Ultra Magnus. So, like the poster on seibertron said, they must only get one initial box and it’s then supplemented shortly after by the full delivery.

    Yep that’s what the site says. Sounds like they’ve been put out early in some places though.

    Only Megs and Prime in Bury Smyths... However the Smyths on Elk Mill Retail Park in Oldham had plenty of Megs, Prime, Sideswipe, Cogs, Skytread and ONE Hound (which I bought). Also had one Ultra Magnus and an empty space where Shockwave should have been.

    Popped down to Luton Smyths to pick up a Siege Shockwave and cancelled my ID Toys preorder. Sorry guys but I can’t be paying over the odds for a figure that might not arrive for three more weeks while it sits postage free and cheaper on shelves now.

    There was an Ultra Magnus left.

    Thanks all for the heads-up, scored a Magnus from Northampton Smyths.

    He was the last leader on shelves, only a voyager Optimus in stock, Siege-wise.

    Pretty sure Fenwicks own the Bentalls in Kingston, will swing by there for a peak when I'm in The Smoke next week to see Mum. Actually spending the week in Pig Hill for a change!

    Smyths website is useless for me now. I keep getting redirected to their new under-construction German website, and direct links to specific listings on the UK site no longer work.

    Will companies never learn? Maybe people actually want to view another version of their website and not their own localized version? Hasbro keeps making the same mistake.

    Salisbury Smyths has Siege: 1x each leader and 2x each deluxe (apart from Flywheels, as I bought one).

    They also have 1x Optimus and 3x Megatron, which they’ve had for a while.

    Received an email from IDToys to say they're receiving the Siege Leaders this Friday. For those who've not found them in Smyths, this should mean their website will carry stock soon.
