    Mine arrived today and it's probably a case of them working through a dispatch list several miles long. I know they've been slammed getting the Fanstoys restocks out the door too.

    First time poster, hello from London.

    I'm only interested in Studio Series, but happy to check out other items if people are interested as I do my best to pop in as often as possible.



    Fenwick Brent Cross: A lot of Crowbars, some Stingers and original Ratchets plus one Blackout at normal prices.

    The Entertainer Brent Cross: All I saw were Thundercrackers down to 19.99
    The Entertainer Westfield London: Bought Grimlock for 39.99, the rest were Thundercrackers

    Smyths Friern Barnet: Plenty of Stingers, Bumblebees (SS01), Lockdowns, Starscreams (SS06). Was impressed to see a Starscream SS21 and Megatron SS13. Prices were on offer at the time and I bought Lockdown for 14.99, but the website seems to show they have been moved back to original.

    Noticed also that Kapow Toys' great prices on some Voyagers has ceased now, luckily I bought Brawl and Starcream SS06 just before for 16.97.

    I just found an Energon Igniters Ratchet in Sainsburys' No sign of the Green Bubble Botbots yet - but they have almost sold all the red bubble ones now - so likely won't be long.

    Most of the series 2 Botbots in Crayford Sainsburys have gone, though I'll admit most were bought by me...

    Newport Entertainer yesterday had Studio Series deluxes down to £10.50 or so - Lockdown, Jazz, Stinger and....I think maybe another Stinger? No great reductions on the other stuff there unfortunately.

    Ricochet and Smokescreen ordered. It's strange, though i'm all about that G2 life G2 Megatron just does nothing for me. Siege Megs will suffice.

    If anyone’s not picked up a Siege Prime or Megatron from Smyths yet, you might want to be quick - according to their website the pair are ‘no longer available’. Everything else is showing up as July restock wise.

    My local Smyths had no Sideswipes so I ordered one off amazon. Now on my third one cos the other two never showed up (the second one was apparently rejected by me... even though I wasn’t in the house.) At least this one was free!

    Absolutely nothing new in my local Smyths aside from these two. I’ve wanted them both for ages but at £50.99 I really can’t justify that.

    Went on the monthly hike around Central London, bought an Endgame Poster.

    Forbidden Planet Shaftsbury Avenue had quite a selection of TFs for a change, Siege Soundwave, Starscream, Prowl, Magnus and Shockwave in abundance and at similar to Kapow prices - not the usual Mark-ups on retail. They had a bunch of Studio Series (I'm sorry, I don't have any interest in these but there's a fair few of them) Jazz, those Predator-haired Car Things, Armoured Car Bee and the likes of Blackout and the same stuff Smyths has.

    Also the leftovers of TR like Inferno, The TerrorCons, Jazz, Twinferno, Outback and Blackwing.

    Orbital had a ton of Siege Starscream, Soundwave , Ironhide and Prowl as well as the last Richochet in the glass cabinets at the front.

    Makes a change to see a LOT of stuff compared to the recent drought. Still no Chromia though. We got screwed on that one.

    Oh is that so? I'm heading down to London in two weeks, I don't suppose you can recall which Terrorcons where available, save me importing them...

    Hound and Flywheels are already vanishing from shelves, I really ought to get the rest of Siege wave 1 before they're gone.

    Both are still £39.99 on the entertainer website if that’s any good for you :)
