    Glad I held off on Jetfire. Him, Drift, Dropkick and Hightower all came in stock on InDemand. Kinda wish I’d waited for Hightower and saved £4 though...

    Micromasters in Southend Toymaster (Toysntuck on Queens Road) confirmed, sadly all that was left was a Stormcloud and Visper this morning, the off road guys had gone :( 

    I messaged both Toymaster Stores in town on fb last night and they both replied today, the other one (Argosy Toys) does have siege figures on order but not had anything in.

    Mine was outright cancelled by them a couple of weeks back, so I'd be interested in whether or not this happens.

    Absolutely fuck all in Newport Smyths, figuratively speaking. A couple of the new Cyberverse armour packs from each class - huge Optimus looked rubbish but the deluxe-sized one with the plane and chain guns looked quite nice, was almost tempted with £5 off the £24 asking price but I'll wait for the genuine reductions.

    The only Siege they had was one Shockwave and a few Cybertron Optimii. Most of the rest was Studio Series voyagers and deluxes - lots of Jazz and Starscream/Optimus, and a couple of Grimlocks.

    Didn't even see that many Rescue Bots, but quite a few Botbots (wave 1 mostly I think). It all looked a bit sorry.

    Anyone remember those awful KO giant-sized Protectorbots from B&M? Well, hold on to your butts people because they've expanded the line... to KO giant-sized versions of the Fall of Cybertron Combaticons. £13 each or two for £20. I saw a Brawl, Swindle and Onslaught, and there may have been more but I wanted to get the stank off me and left in a hurry.

    Also present was the old Sgt Justice / Firenado combo pack, if that's what you're into.

    I got an email from Kapow earlier saying my pre-ordered Springer has been dispatched. I completely forgot I pre-ordered and paid in full! I love when that happens!

    Might be worth checking to see if thy have any left, I doubt we’ll be seeing them out in the wild any time soon.

    Haha I literally cancelled my preorder two days ago because they said it might not be in until Sept. Sigh.

    I literally pre-ordered on last payday because the release date said mid August. I was expecting it to be delayed, that’s why i forgot about it almost immediately.

    Got notice from Kapow meself an' all! Not to be a negative ninny but I'd strike a note of caution that they might be getting some prep done pre-TFNation to lessen the Post-Con weekend workload.

    I'm a bit confused, on FB someone's already posted a "Pickup from TFN" on one of the UK FB groups, is their a Thursday Preview night type thing? I thought it was Friday-Saturday?
