    According to the Unicron thread he's back on pre-order with Kapow. Apparently it was a site issue. Best check yourself though, as I've not looked personally...

    No it's been down for hours now, pretty much since I got to work this morning.

    Reading's Entertainer has Cyberverse Spark Armor Cheetor. Don't know if he's been seen at UK retail yet. Decided to leave him as i'm still hoping we get a more accurate version.

    They also had 1 Siege Starscream and 1 Springer, and the new Cyberverse Scouts including Scraplet.

    I can confirm that for those who’ve still not ordered/on the fence about Unicron, KapowToys Website is now back online & they have Unicron listed as back in stock to preorder. I’ll be putting in my order for him later, can’t see him not being funded now.

    Hey folk, does anyone know if Mirage is, or ever was on the Smyth's website? I can't seem to find him, did he sell out that fast!?

    Well, in what can only be described as unholy hell in a mixture of traffic and people a Saturday visit to Warrington’s Smyths yielded the only Impactor for me (apologies to the guy with his gf looking at Jetfire) as there was little deluxes left so I added SixGun to my collection too. No other deluxes bar Barricade and Red Alert. The staff member who went up the ladder to nab me Impactor works at the St Helen’s branch and reassured me wave 4 is in there (which can’t be said of a visit to Salford’s Smyths on Thursday) but it was Warrington with the £5 voucher. FYI - you don’t need to print it out. They can scan the link posted earlier off your phone

    I think he might not be listed on the website due to being the shortpacked figure of Wave 4's assortment, I managed to pick the only one at the Leeds Crown Point today (after an unfortunate incident/possible QC issue accelerated with my first) and my first port of call the Bradford branch had everybody in stock bar him.

    You just can’t see him as he’s Mirage ;) 

    But seriously no, he’s never been on the website, for some reason he was overlooked. He is there in store though, I can confirm as I bought him from there! However like I imagine you’re trying to do, I couldn’t see him online to check stock beforehand.

    I can confirm multiples of all Wave 4 are in stock in St Helens, as that was where I picked up the above Mirage & was in there again last night swapping Impactor (due to an awkward QC issue with the first) Multiples of all Wave 4, at least there was yesterday.

    Reflect(rack)ors?? Cba trekking out to Speke but might go by St Helens if they are there in quantity?

    *edit: What’s the QC issue on Impactor? I’m thumbing the box at the moment.

    They didn’t have 3 Reflectors, but when I was there they had 2 of them. Checking the website they’re still there, they ‘may’ have a third in stock somewhere not on the site but stashed away? I wouldn’t like to guarantee it though.

    With my Impactor one of the leg panels wasn’t pinned in all the way so it kept coming away from the body:
    46888E7D-7EF9-4953-A79A-D29BBBB11844.jpeg

    Also, the long pin that goes through his chest wasn’t put through all the way on mine (see here):

    But it doesn’t affect the transformation at all, & when I looked at the others in their packaging they all had this same issue. I have the Fan Vote 3-Pack Impactor as well & he doesn’t have this, so I don’t know if that’s linewide or just a few that ended up here.

    For what it’s worth he really is a wonderful toy (if the QC is good!), for me as a fan of the original comics he’s one I would have got anyway but he surprised me with his height and fun. Definitely one of the highlights of Siege for me.

    And to anyone still on the fence about him, the Single Pack head actually looks pretty good in person, quite a sullen and dour expression that’s hard to capture in photos.
