    The one-step Wheeljack is actually quite fun, even if his head is a bit squished. I like how this wave have built-in weapons for robot mode. Wheeljack's shoulder-mounted jizz-missile is neat, firing but not firing off to get lost under the sofa. The one-step version #2 Megatron has the same thing, plus is a much better figure than the version #1 one-step and has a neat transformation too. Also no stupid pink morning star hand. If you ever encounter them on the cheap I'd say at least give those two a go. :)

    The new one step Shockwave looks ace too.

    I didn't even know there was one. Just Googled some images and it looks neat enough. Alt mode is a bit clunky though. But then I only found one angle of photo for that.
    It's just like a normal non-springloaded push missile, but when you poke the rear of the missile launcher the thick, round-ended bolt shoots out as a shaft of blast, except the back end remains fixed to the launcher. So it gives the impression of a weapon being fired, but the shot doesn't fly off across the room to drop inbetween the sofa cushions. It sorta hangs out the nozzle of the cannon like a sad plastic emission.
    And then you push it back into the launcher to let it 'fly' once again.

    Just wondering if Kapow has stocked Commander class Jetfire yet or not?

    Not as far as I know, him Springer and brunt all seem to have been delayed. The only ones they've shipped are red alert and refraktor so far.

    A1 toys in Braehead, Glasgow have Refraktor, Red Alert, and Ectotron out on the shelf. Very tempted by Ectotron but I've got to go and pay a customs charge on Power Baser so I figured I should be sensible.

    FP Bristol now has five (!) Refraktors for anyone hoping to make a camera. 3 Ectotrons on the shelf too, along with everything I listed last time.

    Smyths Toys Southampton in Hedge End has 7-8 Siege Shockwaves at £46.99 but also I can confirm they have an “£5 off £20 on Transformers”. This did stack so they are now 1 Shockwave lighter and it cost me £36.99.

    Well plus the stuff that I bought for my daughter but that wasn’t strictly Transformer cost so I’m counting this as a good discount!

    FP London had Ectotrons, Refraktors and some car-mode Dropkicks in last night.

    That sounds like they've had some mixed cases in - Hound is the figure packing out w3 deluxe, Soundwave w3 Voyager.

    Be interesting to see if these are US or Euro packaging

    Just when I can't justify buying any new Transformers for a bit after a bit of a splurge. :banghead: 
    Oh well, guess The Burt will have to wait :D

    Well, they only had three last week, so they must have just brought out the rest of the case. I had one of the ones from last week so maybe they have more.
