    Did we see Euro Outbacks and Cindersaurs before?

    As per elsewhere, solid cases of Siege deluges, no Chromia

    I thought someone had mentioned Prowl being there before, pretty sure Outback and Cindersaur have been there quite a while too, bearing in mind FP doesn't exactly stick to official UK stock...

    I lose track who’s reported things as I bought Ironhide a week or so back from Orbital

    I bet when you guys go to a strip club you pay more attention to where the dancers got their shoes from!

    IDToys have stuck up pre orders for the remaining revealed Battlemasters and Micromasters for July.

    PRE-ORDER Transformers Siege Wave 3 Battle Masters Set of 2 Caliburst and Smashdown | In Demand Toys
    PRE-ORDER Transformers Siege Wave 3 Micromasters Highjump and Powertrain | In Demand Toys
    PRE-ORDER Transformers Siege Wave 3 Micromasters Blackjack and Hyperdrive | In Demand Toys

    They think both Micromaster packs are W3 - which was what I suspected - but their Australian Toyfair announcement said one was w3 and one was w4.

    Toyfair Australia 2019 part one - new toy reveals

    For those following the ongoing online retailers vs Hasbro UK fun and games, IDToys don't say where they're sourcing these.

    EDIT Asked on FB: Hasbro UK

    I'd not seen them on Euro cards before! Yes FP import, but if it's a Euro card they've almost certainly got it from Hasbro UK.

    From memory, that leaves Leader OpOp and Novastar as the only POTP retail toys not seen here in Euro packaging.

    Ironhide was to be expected, his solid case arrived at Kapow and IDToys at the same time as they got Sixgun.

    Looking at the whole picture the only imports I can see are the SS Stingers (top right), POTP Legends Skrapnel (right) and Thundercrackers (bottom row)

    I didn't see Nitro Zeus or Scorn at my branch, but they did have Voyager Megatron and Hound. Would've been better priced at £12.99 each like B&M usually do for Voyagers, but for anyone that hasn't ever seen them out in the wild before it's still a pleasant find, even at twenty quid.
    Still tempted to look out for Nitro Zeus, even though I picked up SS Thundercracker less than a week ago for £19.99 and actually much prefer the blue on him to the rather boring grey of Zeus. Scorn I'm divided on. I already have the AoE Deluxe.

    Quick Segway, horribly impressed by my WfCS SS Voyager and I’ve noticed he has two display peg ports so I’m gonna get some as the mould at least deserves one. Can anyone help push me in the direction of where to pick some up UK-way. Amazon no stocky...

    Newcastle forbidden planet now has WW2 bumblebee's. Minus one. Also have a DOTM megatron and now have siege deluxes for wave 2. Wave 5 should be full out by the end of may?

    Sorry about the late response. Yeah, they were. They were up on the shelf, above the deluxes and next to the TR Overlords.

    Not sure what you mean by clear peg if these are't suitable, they have clear peg attachments as well as the clawed hands.

    Doesn't seem to be a picture of the pegs on the amazon listing, but that's def what I bought - the top of the listing tells me when I'm logged in - and it has them.

    <checks box> the claws fit over the pegs

    I’m afraid I didn’t really look but they did have the time before as I bought my set from there.

    I'm absolutely shocked to report that Middlesbrough Forbidden Planet have transformers in stock!
    Siege Ironhide (£18.99) SS Optimus (about £30) and that little diecast optimus truck thing.
    Anyone who knows Boro FP knows how run down that place has become. Gone are the halcyon days of shelves full of reissue predakings, binaltech and vintage sixshots.
    Think the last transformers I bought from there were cybertron Repugnus and Shortround!
