    Clacton Home Bargains have those Bumblebee movie one steps that aren't one steps for £3.99, except Ratchet went through at £7.99. The store manager had to do an override because it had a different barcode to the Bumblebee on the shelf.

    I saw those in the Yarmouth Home Bargains but there were no shelf-edge prices and none of them would ring up so they refused to sell them to me and took them off the shelves. They also had the Bumblebee Movie Nitro Igniters, which also didn't ring up so they removed those from the shelf too. Irritating. Guess I'll have to check back another day once they've pulled their fingers from up their useless arses.

    I dunno. Something new for TF finally crops up in a shop here and I'm not even allowed to buy it...

    The Range did that to me a few years ago with a Bot Shots three pack, so I know your pain/mild irritation. (Delete as appropriate)

    I've gone back a few pages to see if it's been posted, and can't find it, so sorry if it's been posted already, but Argos have the TR Soundwave "Bumblebee greatest hits" for £19.99, and the Bumblebee TR cassette pack (Ravage, Buzzsaw & Frenzy) for £8.99.

    Looks like there's plenty of stock around :)

    I was going to get that, but with the announcement of more Siege cassettes, I think i'll pass on them unless I feel the sudden urge to pop into the Black Horse St. Argos.

    It's actually the worst FP i've been to for them, and it's my local. Until these came in, since the end of POTP there has been zero representation on the shelves but an entire aisle dedicated to Funko Pops. I'd advice checking out a few toy stall at con itself, i'm there the Sunday (damn bar job not letting me out on Saturdays!) so will be on the hunt for Siege boys.

    Sad times we live in.

    picked up the Bumblebee Greatest hits pack from Argos, it was only £8.99 and I've wanted Frenzy for ages, the other cassettes are nice too, the one step Bumblebee is fun as well!

    Shame Mirage doesn't look like the manufacturer image that version looks a lot more appealing to me.
    Price is a bit owchy - I'd like a couple of powerdashers - But I don't expect i'd get much selling the other 2 on to anyone.
    I ended up practically having to give away the Botcon Mirage I had to sell - speaking of Mirage though the Machine Wars deco might have been an nice alternative for them to have made in this set.

    Thanks for the HB notifications of new BeeBeeMovie toys - are any of those sighting in Norfolk/Suffolk or Cambridgeshire ?

    Hmm, Worthy Captain America out in forbidden planet Birmingham. Debating whether to get one after mine from Kapow got lost in transit.

    Plus all the usual latest studio, siege, generations select and masterpiece Inc mp17+ as expected here and previously reported.
