    Well Kapow has just emailed me with an invoice for Apeface, think that’s the last of the Wave 5 figures they were waiting on! Guessing Siege Wave 5 will be shipping out to those who preordered on Mon or Tues now.

    Great of them to import these (at a loss) after Hasbro UK fumbled the ball again as well, I’ve always liked Kapow but I’ll definitely be using them more in future now.

    Oh no, I haven’t got mine! Hopefully they’re just still working through them.

    staked out TK Maxx Brighton for the whole week and today I successfully scored Hun-grrr for the possibly incorrect price of £7.99 (no other tf's in stock)

    Well done, that's the way to play the game this time of year, things turnover so fast you can see stock change between two visits on the same day, both stuff disappearing and appearing as restocking during the day frequently happens.

    Jut wish I could be out looking. Only left the house once since last Sunday's church and that was to get my repaired leg braces from the hospital!

    Wow congrats!

    I went to 4 TK Maxx stores in London today and saw Wave 1 deluxes POTP at £10.

    Have Titan class figures ever turned up there?

    By Jove, you're right! I think Max was the last Titan to turn up at TKM, I think it got overshadowed by him being so cheap with Tesco over that Christmas period. I'd forgotten I saw him at either the Leeds Crown Point or Bradford Forster Square branch around that time. He wasn't that cheap though IIRC?

    Only bot bots at mine too....
    Occasionally you might spot at rescue bot there, but never any cyberverse, studio series or siege stuff.

    Yeah, I don't remember how much they were selling him for, but it wasn't a super bargain. I think I managed to get the SDCC version for less around the same time.

    Yeah, my memory is misty but IIRC he hit the Black Friday sale on the Tesco direct website (besides being in some stores to boot) and they had to delist him because he sold out/due to high demand. Not sure if it actually crashed the site, or at least his listing page at some point? Hmm, musing on this I'm starting to remember I think he got put on a three for two offer, and a few folks managed to trio it out and get him for something ridiculous like £50/60 when split three ways or summink? Anyone else remember better?

    Middlesbrough tkmaxx have Sinnertwin, Cut Throat KO Starscream, some cyberverse blue thing and a big Bumblebee movie Scalextric track thing in store.
    Desperate for a cheap Hunn-Gar to complete Abominus as I've noticed his price has doubled online since these sightings started

    Milton Keynes have a bunch of those giant KO Hot Spots in that were in the other year. I was half tempted but not for £20.

    Picked up a Siege Astrotrain from Warrington Smyths today after work. I almost missed it and was just going to pick up a Siege Barricade instead, as I was walking off I saw the Astrotrain box had been placed side on in a different section a little away from the TF's, not sure if someone was potentially trying to hide it or what but I grabbed it and put the Barricade back (probably pick Barricade up another time no doubt)

    He's ace but I still wish Leader class were the same size as previous series. He is a one man army though with the amount of guns he carries haha.

    Sorry, I only check in here sporadically. Mine was definitely a Sludge. Like I said, it didn't scan at the til, so they had to scan dreadwind twice.

    I can take a photo of the card back later if people wanna see where the stock is from etc?

    Might help, please!

    And if anyone can get an in shop pic plus a note of what else is there. This one is a bit odd, doesn't fit with the known cases unless the rest of his wave is cleared first
