    The current FP cheaply priced terrorcons appear to be imported with exactly the same label as the current home bargains wave 1 POTP. Hope for a wider release maybe? 20191108_183254-1.jpg

    MBC import anything they can lay their hands on and have done for as long as I can remember.

    I'm told these to have both an English and Asian (Chinese?) instruction book, like the Home Bargains POTP, which indicates the same ultimate source.

    The date code in the picture, above the import label, says they were produced Sep 2018 which, like mine above is later than the initial run.

    Hmmm, if you can grab us a pic of the area with the text on the door and the date stamp on the toy, embossed inside the leg - not the Hasbro product code which is written inside the other one. This has got me intrigued now......

    Yeah, not a good pic of the date stamp. Starts 811

    One of my recent purchases, possibly PotP Hun-Gurr had an Asian manual. Ironically is was helpful as the purple on grey highlighting they use for Decepticons is kind of tricky to make out at times but seemed clearer on the Asian manual :D

    More transformers at home bargains just now. An old set and a bit pricey but they're digging all these out from somewhere 20191109_140500-1.jpg

    Haven't seen these oversize KO's before.

    And they really are oversized. The deluxe molds are about Leader Class size. Only the 4 of them. No Blastoff mold.

    Also managed to pick up the last Voyager Scorn.

    If they're what I think they are, they've been about for a bit. Blast Off does exist. A friend bought all 5 and discovered the combined head is missing!

    Thought it might have been old news. I haven't been to B&M in a while.

    They have been out a few months - I have tinkered with the idea of buying them - they rarely have a full set though.
    I don't think they all have a missing heads - I think that is just a manufacturing error - I suggest they go check the others on the shelf in their local store. I kinda dig that yellow Vortex though - perhaps if I buy one to see what they are like I might get that one.

    [edit]

    Correction I don't think they have a combiner head at all the image showing the combined mode on the box has the Onslaught head on it and the Onslaught I look on the shelf this afternoon in a branch has no head either.

    Sorry, but what’s FP? Is their an equivalent in Northern Ireland or in the South? I need me some terrorcons. Also, what’re the chances of late-wave POTP voyagers showing up? I remember CW onslaught showing up for €20 in a cheapo shop above a JD sports in the Republic back in 2017/2018.

    IDToys have posted saying they're getting the POTP deluxes wave 1 and 3 for very cheap. Believe the Terrorcons will be around £8 each or something, not 100% sure.
