    Nothing yet from Kapow on that last Siege wave being fulfilled this week. Hopefully we’ll hear something tomorrow else it’ll be next week I guess.

    Toymaster/Toy Barnhaus in Sutton, Surrey has the usual assortment of Bot Bots and various Cyberverse - including the big Spark Power Optimus Prime Ark Armor whatever it's called thing.
    They also have an assortment of last wave (I think) PotP, Slag/Slugs, Dreadwings, Swoops, at least one Jazz and various Prime Masters. All the PotP stuff was discounted. Prime Masters were £3.99, the Deluxes were discounted to £9.99
    They also had several Siege Reflectors, one Hound and Brunt each, a few Studio Series Movie Hounds and at least one Movie Slash. Not sure if he's Studio Series or Age of Extinction.

    TK Maxx in central Oxford sadly has no Galaxy Primes, just a Studio Series Starcream and POTP Grimlock.

    The TK Maxx stores in Wood Green, Tottenham Hale and Enfield have 2 x POTP Starscream and 1 x POTP Grimlock between them.

    Edit: Harringay Green Lanes didn’t have Siege leaders either.

    Elita-1 sighting is interesting.

    Hope it means there might be more unreported figures floating around.

    Didn't think to snap a pic as proof until I was halfway through taking the price sticker off the box at home (I hate how TK's stickers always come off in bits!).

    Kapow have POTP Sludge in stock so sounds like Sludge should be doing the rounds (in addition to the reports in this thread)

    Any chance of a photo of the KO Starscream?
    Would be nice if there were a KO of the Cyber Battalion Shockwave. In correct colours, of course (or as Astro Magnum/Shackwave).

    The large Rescue Bots thing I saw in TKMaxx was an Academy Electronic Hot Shot. I think it was £12.99, but I might be mixing the price up with something else.

    Ah That Hotshot I got him on Amazon for some crazy price months ago (Less than £5.00) ; I was always a little disapointed it didn't come with Minicons Like the similar Optimus and Bumblebee did. That is still a good price though.


    The Cyber Battalion KO I got was the same as this one :
    #41205

    They do come in a large number of other colours though so it may be possible other colours are around too.
    The Black and red one is very nice it sort of looks like what one of the Cyberjets would look like if it was a 'Seeker'.

    I am not aware of any KO of Batallion Shockwave, Sideswipe, Prowl or Jetfire yet that is of acceptable quality. The earlier ones have metal part KO's though - this one is in a totally different Box to the proper toys though. a large open face one with the name "On version" written on it - it has the look about it of the sort of thing the B&M Toy Buyer would get in.

    Sorry everyone, I think I've missed something, not been online a couple days and I've skim read through the past 3-4 pages I've missed, but couldn't place where the KO Starscream talk originated. Where did you get this KO Starscream from and for how much exactly?

    Might try and have a look in TK Maxx Warrington tomorrow and see if there's a cheap Siege Leader Optimus, been going back and forth on whether I wanted it but for £17 it would be a steal!

    Nothing Siege or POTP in TK Maxx Stratford and Charing Cross Road.

    I wonder if there is a split of allocation between London and outside London. Most likely I am just late.

    TK Maxx for £6.99 (images in the links a few pages up) The packaging looks like this : #41214
    The cross sell shows a Black one too.
    Asia has had these for a while in a number of other colours.
    It comes with two sets of guns (they fit perfectly on POTP Starscream which was one of the reasons I bought it for the spare guns) and it does indeed have knees too - unlike the original mould.
    Plastic Quality is moderate but lower than Hasbro.
