    and Kapow said on facebook that Jetfire arrives Friday.

    Yeah I've had loads of stuff from Smyths, toys, games etc by post in the last few years, generally quite fast. As soon as its dispatched you should get a tracking ref if you log in to your account.

    Their customer services team I've generally found to be good too if there is an issue.

    No, Springer was the only item in the order. It's disappointing that you had to pursue the issue with them to get things moving forward.

    I tried emailing them a week ago, but only received an automated response. Where's the best place to contact them?

    Cheers!

    They were Argos for a tenner when last seen quite a few months ago, if you can get their number for them you never know if they still have any kicking about in stock.
    Don't overpay for them though, they look nice and I wouldn't want to lose mine but articulation is very poor and the shoulders can be very loose especially,
    you are most likely to find them on FB Marketplace as they are perceived as very young toys and get thrown in with Rescue Bots bundles, there was one on there the other day actually but I would expect you will miss the gun/sword accessories, oddly I have a double of one of the swords I think, cant quite figure out how I did that.

    Laters.

    Heads up peeps. Siege Refraktor is listed as appearing in Smyths Kidderminster on their website so might be worth checking your local ones for Deluxes over the next few days

    A friend who works at a store in Scotland has just posted pictures of the w3 deluxe and Jetfire having just turned up.

    Brunt, Refraktor, Red Alert and repacked Hound is the w3 deluxe case so that makes sense.

    Knowing who Springer is shipping with would be useful - the options are:
    * solid cases, like the specialist stores
    * with Starscream, like the w3 case
    * with Thundercracker (has he been seen outside the specialists yet?) as was the originally planned w3 case
    ?????

    I noticed Ratchet was in stock in Argos today too.
    I think they get their Botbots Restocks in soon judging by the date you get when you try to order some.

    Today in a Tesco I got One step Prowl, One step SkyByte, & One Step Shockwave, I also Got a Scraplet scout too.
    They also had a packaging variation on some of the older one steps with the other including Hot Rod, Wheeljack, Bumblebee and Axe Optimus.

    No Botbots anywhere though - no shelf label either - Sainsbury's had the label but not stock in all the stores I checked - and the single packs have just gone back up in price too to £3.00 again.

    Been off the radar a few weeks to focus on finishing this year at Uni and work, forgive me if this has been covered in great tedium already, but have Rainmakers and Micromaster 10 Pack appeared on our shores yet?

    Not outside of the odd Importer at rather steep prices thus far AFAIK.

    I got Bluestreak from them a while back. Did their stock come in multiple batches?
