    It is weird that it's consistently the smallest size classes that are causing the most problems.

    Yes shame it's not cheaper though.
    If anyone is looking to buy this more with a mind to get Mirage & Or Impactor - i'm looking to buy any stray Aragons that might be going spare.

    Amazon have dropped the price of Siege Jetfire by £6, to match the £6 off £50 spend at Smyths I assume.

    The Skywarp and Firestormer packs are both sub-£35 - neither in stock, but very decent prices if they ever actually turn up. Skywarp was almost £37 when I ordered, but don't want to cancel and reorder in case I get bumped to the bottom of the queue!

    Are those the smaller versions? And if so, price?
    Additional:
    Ah, didn't see this post until after I made the one above. I have the bigger Optimus, Megatron and Grimlock and think they're kinda neat. Obviously the quality is far lower than we usually get, but not so terrible that they feel like those waxy plastic multicoloured knock-offs from the pound shop.

    Thankee.

    Took a trip out to my local B&M, which is a quest and a half right now as they've had all the junctions and lights in and out of the road where that branch is mired in big roadworks for weeks now.
    Anyway, managed to scoop up the five Bravos and decided to just buy the remaining Alpha I'd skipped previously (Bumblebee). Better than trying to get back to that store again anytime soon after inevitably changing my mind.
    Just wish B&M would put their stock out in some kind of sensible way. Two of the Bravos I found together at the end of one aisle. Then two more on opposite sides futher down. And then the last one I wanted (Starscream) was nowhere to be found. My heart was sinking at the prospect of having to fight my way back to the store again another day in hopes of fresh stock. Then I spotted one crammed between some random crap on the far end cap.
    Triumph. But it could've been so easily missed.
    You could put the erratic stock spread down to browsers and customers moving/hiding stuff, except the whole frigging toy aisles are always like it. It's bloody frustrating. Not that there are ever any shelf-edge tickets to match the stock up to anyway. And I thought TKMaxx was bad.

    Siege Omega Supreme available to order on smyths website as of this post for home delivery. With the voucher code you get £12 off (code: WM12)

    Personally going to stick to my guns and hope they arrive in the Warrington store over the next couple of days and pick one up in person, can still use the voucher up to the 27th I believe.

    I received mine from Kapow yesterday, checked it over as its a christmas present from parents. God to say, as much as I've liked the others, aside from Trypticon it seems to be the most solid of the titan figures so far.

    Did you mean the £29.99 listing by some comic shop or is there a cheaper one with a nonsense name like they tend to give to things ?

    The Smokescreen and Nightbird are being sold by Comictoyz or whatever it is. They’re both £29.99 yes. I have also bought from that amazon seller before they’re very good.
