    So looking at Smyth's website for Studio Series figures, and for the ones that are out of stock (most of them) there's a message on the listing stating Expected in Stock: No Longer Available. They didn't seem to be out all the long, certainly Ironhide and the VW Bumblebee wave, have I missed something or is Smyth's website just pants?

    I saw an Ironhide in Linwood before Christmas and greatly regret not getting it now because literally the only SS figures they had yesterday were 3 Crowbars...

    I found SS Sideswipe online for £35 should I buy him? It's a lot but the deluxes might not arrive to the UK.

    Omegalock/tfsexpress have him for £23. Even after postage, you're way better off with them than whoever is selling him for £35

    Anyone know if there is anything decent in Cambridge Forbidden Planet Transformers wise? Have a few days off work and was planning on heading over if so.

    Hucknall Tesco have now found some RID warriors from somewhere, priced at £10 each. They had Starscream and the dragon fella plus some others.

    They also had the deluxe Cyberverse. I saw Shockwave there but didn't delve any further.

    Warning for any buyers in Milton Keynes. I just took my misassembled Shockwave back into Smyths. After a frankly bizarre interrogation they refunded me, but said that they would be putting my misassembled one back on the shelves because “no one else would notice”. So if you see one there you’ve been warned. The misassembley was that his lower thigh joint was on the wrong way around. If it’s not an issue for you knock yourself out.

    I'd be inclined to shoot Smyths an email to report that. That's pretty bad of them to put defective goods back on sale.
