    The Seacons- why can't Kapow not just offer them at what they cost plus overheads? Do Kapow not pay their distributor in advance the full amount? Or do they only pay when the stuff ships to them?

    My guess would be they're reselling from say a Japanese shop (for example) rather than a wholesaler/supplier so are not paying the lower wholesale prices for them and thus charging the higher prices for us. Just a guess though.

    Yeah I received a dispatch email around an hour after I ordered him. Posted the pic after I’d checked in store to see when they’d be getting him. My Aberdeen store said he’s not listed for the next two deliveries to them so would be over a week at least. They also said they generally get things in last so I figured as he was post free I’d just order him online.

    Thanks to an earlier sighting, my Siege Thundercracker has shipped from Amazon.co.uk. From this listing https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B07LFRNNH6/ref=pe_3187911_189395841_TE_dp_1

    However the image there seems to be US stock, so I won’t know until Monday where it’s from.

    And annoyingly that Phantomstrike squad has not turned up on Amazon UK, so I may never complete the seekers set. But meh to paying Amazon USA prices for it!

    Wave 2 was skipped. The only Stunticon we got was Drag Strip as part of Wave 1

    As wave 2 was skipped, the UK also missed out on Air Raid.

    I think our man @waraijj is talking about NuRID Combiner Force? And I'm not sure as I didn't follow the line.

    That's Combiner WARS not FORCE. I think @waraijj means the RID 2015 Combiner Force Menasor

    And yes it did come out here Transformers: Robots In Disguise Combiner Force Ultra Bee and Menasor Found At UK Retail - Transformers News - TFW2005

    Small numbers of grey imported CW Dlx Stunticons showed up at a discount chain in ..... 2017 IIRC

    For these questions look at Mr @Nevermore's Whats Released Lists at Newly released and upcoming toys: Hasbro edition and linked pages

    Ah, grey imports! That explains the huge price tag in the listings I've just been looking at for a toy not that old! (Though 2 years is pretty long in toy shelf-life, I suppose.)

    Both Siege Thundercracker and Springer arrived from Amazon.co.uk, and they appear to be Euro stock. So they seem to be trickling in.

    Just a warning for Siege Springer, mine arrived the other day from IDToys and was missing one of the halves of the tail fin thing in the leg. Being sent a replacement part but just be wary.

    Yea I probably just got really unlucky, as per usual. The first Bumblebee Prime I got had a pin put through at an angle so the leg was wonky.
    Also here is the picture of my Springer:

    Any news on Cyberverse Cheetor hitting the UK? Can see him for 30 quid at ID toys but don’t really wanna splash out that plus postage.
