    Titans Return Bumblebee , Brawn and Roadburn for £6.99 . I dont recommend the Roadburn though ... one of the least satisfying transformations i have ever done .

    Soundwave with Doombox was there for about £34 but Argos had that for about £18 in the toysale .

    Everything else was the usual price .

    Are Bristol and Brum the same FP company? There's two.

    I seem to recall something about the local shops being franchises which would imply some autonomy in pricing.

    Interesting there's suddenly a bit of POTP Deluxe w3 doing the rounds, always thought there was leftover POTP sitting in a warehouse somewhere. That's also the second time someone has seen TR Legends w4 in recent days too. Buy the Brawn if you've not got it, it's superb. Best Legend for my money.

    Just picked up Cyberverse Spark Armor Shockwave at - of all unlikely places - Wilkinsons in Basildon. About £16.

    They had Prowl in the same Battle Class too.

    Now I feel better about getting my Scraplet at Kerrison Toys last week for £6.99. I was sure I'd overpaid. He's fun, but there's really not much to him.

    Liverpool Forbidden Planet swamped with Terrorcons too. My first thought was "These will be here for the next 2 years"

    Oh I wonder if all the stores have done their reset for toys - as I find they tend to be horribly slow to do that usually and then clearance everything by feb. Did they have any other Transformers - all mine had 2 weeks ago was the usual Fake lego and unbranded toys cars and blind bag tat

    He'd be the coolest little thing if he could curl up into a ball but size wise they complement TR Sharkticons quite well I may buy at least 3 of them for that reason. I'd say it's the best figure in the Scout line perhaps - though Windblade is kinda decent too.

    I looked at their main website they are still full price - does any of the store that have them at the lower price do mail order - I happen to live in a dead zone that the only POTP toys that were ever seen was Wave One Legends in a single Toymaster. Or if I travel a bit further they did have POTP Starscream - but he's easy enough to get - Deluxes though were a complete lack. I've only picked up the few I could find online so far.

    Got the bin lorry Grimlock in Argos earlier, the grimlock is pretty good but the armour doesn't work as well as bumblebees sadly.

    I wish Smyths' online store was so well-stocked. I do not have a Smyths I can reach near me :(

    Oh, neato, hopefully my comic shop gets them in this week as well so I can pick up a Mirage.

    Sorry, I don't recall anything beyond those two. Was too chuffed to find Shockwave amongst the usual Wilko guff.
