    No, no Titanmasters released post w2 - Ramhorn is w5 - though Hasbro swear blind w3 was available.

    W5 has been quite widely available through a number of online sources, Amazon.co.uk had it themselves at one stage iirc (as opposed to a seller on Amazon UK)

    I don't know about other people's area but I only see the Cyberverse Warrior wave with Optimus/Bumblebee/Starscream/Shockwave over and over. and I recently managed to fine a lone Hot Rod all be in wrecked packaging - but no Prowl, Windblade or Megatron at all.

    I don't know if they will be re-packed in a later wave - I suspect I've missed Acid Storm completely too as I can't see them reissuing him.
    I managed after a lot of hunting to get a decently priced Thundercracker online, and Slipstream is about a bit. But I don't know if they will ever do Skywarp, or others. It's a shame they were not on their A-game with the mould though as it was always going to be one they heavily repaint, and there was things to improve on with the Nu-RID version.

    Glad to see the ASDA Botbots sighting - something new at least.

    Not sure how reliable Zavvi is for these things, but noticed they have pre-orders up for Siege Astrotrain, Spinister and Crosshairs, due end of October.

    Edit: And Apeface too.

    Kapow and IDToys have been saying October since they were added to the website, pretty sure.

    FP's pricing is nuts (unless that's an 'International' branch) - they're £23.99 in Bristol FP

    Not sure what the international branches are, but this ones a bit of a dive, worn carpets, next to no stock, dated to hell.
    Not like the flash store in newcastle

    There seems to be two separate entities/franchises (I think we've discussed this before) - ForbiddenPlanet.com is your main one with stores in Bristol, London, Southampton etc.

    Then there's ForbiddenPlanet.co.uk - which tends to be called Forbidden Planet International. The one in Cardiff is one of these and matches your description :)

    I don't know if there is any RID fans left but I liked the line enough to think this worth a mention - an eBay Seller in Taiwan has the Sideswipe Activator for £15.99 in their sale. :
    eBay item number: 123837630958

    I thought i'd mention it as I am unsure if very many - if any of this one made it to the UK at normal retail - and someone might want to complete the set. If the price still isn't good enough - I expect Topcashback UK will have a bonus next Bank Holiday to get you a bit more off it.

    I know I’ve posted about similar things spotted in HB recently but not spotted Ratchet and Hot Rod! #brainfried

    well that’s Hot Rod on his side on the left of the picture. I don’t tend to follow the simpler lines but don’t recall seeing Ratchet out in the wild so thought Hot Rod might be a new spot too. Plenty in the Salford branch I was in on Tuesday.
