    No problem. If anyone else buys, can they let us know?

    Smyths currently have SS wave 1 Optimus and 21 ROTF Starscream for £21.99. Pretty sure this is gonna be the cheapest you’ll be able to get that Starscream.

    He’s a pretty good figure, some tabs don’t quite line up in robot mode on mine, which sucks but it doesn’t detract much from the figure

    If anyone wants a titans return broadside there's two in forbidden planet Birmingham totally randomly.

    Cliffjumper is the only new figure in wave 2, everyone else is a carry-over from wave 1.

    Found siege Soundwave x 2 in forbidden planet leeds, 29.99 each. Left them both as I'm expecting him delivered from nottsbotsco this week.

    He wasn't recognised when he was scanned at the tills.
    Sainsbury's had the Bumblebee Movie Legions on offer for £5.25 rather than £7, so they just put Cliffjumper through at the offer price.
    Do size classes still share the same barcode or does each character get their own one now? I mean if all the other figures in wave two are the same as wave one, do they change the barcode on those too or would it have been just Cliffjumper with a new barcode that didn't scan? If that question makes sense.

    Same happened with me when I bought mine on Christmas Eve!

    Each has their own EAN on its packaging, but there's still an assortment EAN which the individual EANs should be linked to. Cliffjumper presumably hasn't been entered into the system yet. Since Hasbro still hasn't released any stock photos more than three months after he was found in Australia and Germany, I can only assume his release is officially intended to coincide with the home video release of the film.

    Wherever you heard that it's blatantly false.

    Here's a UK-based seller on eBay that sold a 38 Optimus Prime in European packaging (second, non-stock photo) and is listing an EAN I didn't have yet in my list (and just one digit up from Rampage, which makes perfect sense; the final digit is just a check digit for those wondering).
    Transformers Studio Series 38 OPTIMUS PRIME (Bumblebee) UK Stock - MISB | eBay

    And here is a listing for Barricade at Amazon UK. Since I found the listing by looking up the EAN, it's also European stock.
    https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B07KMNH2KQ

    Forbidden Planet is listing Barricade with an EAN, due April 30:
    Hasbro: Transformers: Transformers: Studio Series Action Figure: Barricade from Transformers @ ForbiddenPlanet.com - UK and Worldwide Cult Entertainment Megastore

    Animegami also has the complete wave 5 in stock. Since their SKU for the wave is HASE0701EU44, it should be European stock as well.

    EDIT: Voyager wave 6 at Animegami too:

    Also, a solid case listing at UK wholesaler NDA Toys for 38 Optimus Prime (code name "Hero"):

    What was the original RRPs of SS voyagers?

    Notice too Smyths have “only at Smyths” on some RH figs. Haven’t seen that tag on figures there before or have I missed something?

    As far as I’m aware the original RRPs for SS figures in the uk were:
    Deluxes - £25
    Voyagers - £35
    Leaders - £65

    But on release they came down to £22,£30 & £50 respectively. And most preorders are saying that future Deluxes will be £20.

    Typical. Recently I keep buying stuff on discount only for it to show up even cheaper elsewhere around a week later. I should just stop buying anything.
    Any other characters?

    Nipped into The Entertainer Warrington today. They had the Siege battlemasters and a few Bumblebee Energon Igniters, but was mostly surprised me was the glut of TLK Deluxe Hot Rods, voyagers and allspark tech. I’m starting to think sights like that might be why shops like TE and Smyths seem to have been quite late to the newer figures lately.

    I left OP on the shelf. I'm not sure if the VW Bumblebee was among them, but picked up the Camaro one by mistake thinking it was the VW one. Also picked up Barricade. Didn't see if Hot Rod was amongst them, but would've picked up if he was.
