    Thanks for the reply. Good to know of that since Tesco is the supermarket furthest from me. If either Asda or Sainsburys have something better then at least I'll not have to travel out to the distant Tesco to see what they had in comparison. And if Asda and Sainsburys don't have anything extra then I'll know it's worth the effort to nip out to the Tesco.
    I believe the Blu-ray is going to cost £13.

    Dunno if folk are aware but A1 toys in silverburn Glasgow has newest wave of drive deluxes.
    I saw couple ironhides, prowl and I think the fembot. I bought an ironhide, this was maybe Friday.

    B&M St. Helens have a bit of assorted Bumblebee stuff and TLK Nitro and Scorn in. I’d have picked up Nitro but I already have SS Thundercracker so i wasn’t fussed.

    Forbidden planet leeds has one siege Soundwave and one siege starscream, no prices on them but expect about 29.99. I left them as I already have both. They also had siege ultra Magnus x 2 for 46.99 I think.

    I don't think Chromia has been seen anywhere UK yet thanks to Hasbro uk's lack of a solid case for her.

    Be interested to see a pic to see if this is imported or if A1 has got a UK w2 mixed case

    two Asda's ( oldbury and quinton ) and one coop later and i have been unable to pick up Bumblebee on DVD .
    Bad enough the Asda has stopped stocking the toys , now they seem to have given up on the DVDs too .

    Not TF related but my local McColls have now started stocking Fortnite figures. Was it McColls or Co-op which had Titan Masters?

    Co-Op got in Wave 2 of the Prime Masters (Landmine & Submarauder with repacked Skullgrin & Metalhawk) for a fiver apiece in the run-up to Xmas 2018 IIRC (some stores may also have gotten Wave 3 but I have no evidence or experience to back that up.)

    Yeah, Hasbro UK's supplying of TFs has been defying all logic well before the Siege Wave 2 debacle, don't get me wrong I was chuffed to get my hands on the wee Pretender customising materials for such a bargain price BUT banging out the second wave of the smallest price point of the last line at a deep discount just as the next line was about to drop was frankly ludicrous.

    I already had SS Thundercracker, but I still picked up Nitro since they just look so different side-by-side, especially if you unfold TC's wings for a more G1 Seeker look.

    Indeed. Nor had my Asda. I picked mine up from Tesco in the end. Rather aptly the Tiny Turbo figure I got free with the purchase was VW Beetle Bumblebee.

    My local Asda had both DVD and Blu-ray but only a couple of copies of each out on the shelf. I remember when these things used to be more of an event when released.
    As for actual TF toys, my branch of Asda have had only a few Rescue Bots and Bot-Bot five packs for ages.
    It's really shit out there in the wild these days.

    So apparently at some point between two years ago and now, Amazon officially stocked the Transformers Tribute Bumblebee three-pack, in case anyone still wants it:

    Anyone heard from Kapow yet on Generations Select Swoop or Ricochet yet? They’re listed as out of stock now rather than preorders but haven’t got any despatch notification. Might be nothing of course but thought I’d see if anyone else had heard anything.

    Mine - and my Siege leader Op - are en route to my Death Fortress in Swindon. I unfortunately am in London till Friday.

    Did you have them grouped with anything else?

    Nope, Swoop on his own. :( 

    Better give them a buzz.
