Cool, here's hoping.
Grapple and Starscream in package images up on In Demand Toys.
That's worthy of a news credit....
Its been on front page since InDemand put them up last week...
Don't forget it's the Sainsbury's Toysale today.
Still out of stock, but Amazon.co.uk are accepting orders for the Siege Skywarp pack again - good sign they might actually get some stock at some point?
Has anyone seen preorders for the two new micromaster sets anywhere? Ie. The combining truck and ravage/rumble?
I don't think so, best to wait for Amazon us to get them, it's where I've gotten the last few from.
Same here. Think that's where I've gotten most from except for off road which I got from games and cards
No. Battlemasters Rung and Singe are also AWOL
At this point it's probably just best to wait and see who gets it in first, German Amazon or UK.
The former says it'll get more stock in within the next 3 months, meanwhile we have no idea what's going on with Amazon UK.
Only just saw these images on their site, don’t use FB and had missed the posting on the front page, my bad.
Thanks they cancelled mine so I reordered it. Glad it's still not super expensive at least. fingers crossed on the 3 pack being available too soon.
Has anyone seen anything of note in Sainsbury's yet ?
Anyone gotten Barricade from InDemand Toys yet? I got the full payment request for mine over a week ago but it hasn't been sent.
Rung was handed out to people at one of the comicons so he does exist. Likewise Ratbat and Rumble
I got some Transformers in Sainsburys anyway nothing to exciting (some Botbot 5 packs and some Cyberverse Scouts) but it was 1/3rd off on the brand. I also got a couple of reduced Hotwheels Batmobiles too. They basically had the same sort of "Tat" that ASDA laughably get in in their "Toy events" (i.e. stuff you'd be embarassed to be seen selling at a Carboot sale) the only branded thing they got in worth a damn that they didn't already have was some additional Lego & a Sylvanian Family house.
All their Transformers are gone now - not that they had much last week before I got there today In fact I don't think they'd sold much if anything at all that wasn't there last week. Perhaps when they restock now they might get something newer and more interesting or at least restock their Scout wave with the one with the Scraplet in it. Shame they don't sell Rescue Bots.
Speaking of which if anyone notices Rescue Bots on sale in ASDA please tell me as I want to buy a Medix but I don't really want to pay £11 for him.
In Demand Toys on FB says
He's not coming this week: In Demand Toys on FB
I also in the same boat but spoke to them today over phone. Sadly Hasbro has let them down with Mirage and barricade and only sent impactor so now ID Toys have loads of impactor sat there waiting to go out to people who ordered him with barricade and or Mirage. They said they don’t think he’s coming by Friday but can turn up any day. Smokescreen might arrive Friday but again should be by end of month.
The Sainsbury's toy sale was a bust for me. Nothing different than usual with regard to their standard poor Transformers selection. Lots of Lego in varying states of discount though so I bought some of that instead. These days Transformers seem to have made me a prolific Lego collector.
Speaking of Lego, Tesco have some Hidden Side and Harry Potter sets 20% off. Plus HS J.B.'s Lab was £18 down to £10.50. Argos have some Hidden Side cheap too. For example, almost £37 off the Newbury School set. Almost £18 off the train set. And others.
Picked up Authentics Megatron and Optimus from B&M to go with the Grimlock I got the other day. Are there any others besides the Bumblebee? Also, what's the case breakdown? Seems to me to be one Optimus, One Megatron and two Bumblebees.
Finally, that new Cyberverse Optimus and Starscream double pack in Tesco was half price, so from £30 to £15. Essentially £7.50 per figure if you want to look at it like that. Dunno if that makes them more worth a purchase to anybody.
Hasbro why must you make collecting be so hard for anyone outside of the US? Oh well, thanks for letting me know, guess it's time to play the waiting game.
