    Forbidden Planet Birmingham has Siege Skytread , Hound , Cog , Sideswipe and micromasters .

    Was my first time seeing them in retail . Wasnt too interested in the larger toys , but i did pick up the Race Car Patrol and Air Strike Patrol .

    I think your best bet is to use a web proxy there are plenty of free ones - but I can't say I've seen a UK very often

    Smyths website is useless in general terms frankly. Still listing zero Shockwave stock anywhere but we know he’s all over the place now.

    Can anyone give me a guesstimate of when Studio Series Cogman will be landing? I'm more up to speed on the WFC end than the movie line.

    Not quite a sighting but I just found out they are opening a Smyths in Romford Town centre in April...that will make 4 in my area along with Loughton, Barking and Lakeside...I am very happy as the three I mentioned are all at least a 30 minute journey for me

    Hell officially froze over last night as the wife bought me 3 BB legion figures from Tesco last night.

    She got me Camaro Bee, Barricade and Hot Rod for £1.75 each.

    What are Transformers at the supermarkets like these days? My wife is making me go out in the rain in a bit to get some washing up liquid and I thought I’d at least go somewhere I might be able to get something for the weekend.

    I've barely seen any in supermarkets lately, they seem to have given up on them.

    Brent Cross Fenwicks have Siege deluxes and voyagers.

    Brent Cross The Entertainer had Funko Pop, with a tiny selection of some (Bayverse?) TFs.

    Smyths Staples Corner had 2 Siege Megatrons and a Sideswipe.

    The single blind packs of botbots appeared at my local Asda for £2.97 each. Grabbed three from the very top shelf where they hold additional stock.

    Interestingly the shelves normally holding transformers toys had stock removed and were empty. Wondering if they are preparing for new products.

    Couple of Seige Micromasters in Forbidden Planet Cardiff, the military ones and the Race Patrol, I think. Two Studio Series figures too; a Ratchet and a Stinger. Nothing else, though - not in FP or anywhere else. Shelves are still clogged with Lask Knight tat.
