    Pretty similar in Boucher Road and Ballymena.

    Ballymena had basically nothing, but when I went they were in the middle of a huge shelving change.

    Boucher had all the expected (for Northern Ireland) siege stuff, but much less than they had before. They also had the new cyberverse ultimates in stock.

    I can only hope it’s a shelf shuffle followed by actually stocking things over here this year. We have had next to nothing all year round.

    Random question just on the subject of empty shelves around christmas time - does anyone remember toys r us saying that they didn't use to get new toys in until the end of January? I remember going a couple of times looking for new figures years ago, and every time 'oh we don't get any new deliveries in til the end of January'. Is that still the same with other toys? Don't know wtf that was about or if it was just my local toys r us (formerly metro centre)

    Just been into Smyths in Speke. Don't know if this was a new find or not (I don't recall him being mentioned before)
    He looks like it might be fun. 20200102_124743.jpg

    Come across those myself recently but in The Entertainer instead.

    I’m still not sure if they’re new or not but can’t remember if they’ve always been there and I haven’t noticed or they are in fact new.

    I'm pretty sure they're new. I think I saw Shockwave in The Entertainer in Manchester Arndale yesterday.

    I guess that’s an unofficial news credit then for those of us that have spotted them since it’s only recently they’ve been showcased in this thread

    I went back and checked my locations for those new Cyberverse BAF to try my luck and all the bike girls have gone I’m guessing they must surprisingly be really popular I figured they’d be shelf warming until Easter.

    Smyths in Maidstone had all the new studio series deluxes, the two new cyberverse leaders with the energon armour and a very good selection of siege, most of the deluxes for a start. I got siege mirage and studio bumblebee (no. 49).

    Smyths in Wallsend had 1 soundwave (now gone), 2 Bumblebees, 2 Arcee 3-pack, 2 ww2 hot rods. Still quite a few siege voyagers as well.

    Has anyone been in the Nottingham smyths? I want ss bee but it's a bit of a trek for nothing and the whole wave is showing as out of stock for that store (bee isn't even on the website)

    I think that ID Toys still have some import stock for him at £19.99 if you can’t get your hands on him in person.

    I really recommend him though he’s a good figure.

    Their import was £25 last i looked. I'm willing to wait until the uk stock comes in to save a fiver, and want to get megs and shockwave too, but if he's at £20, then I'll be nabbing him now. But yeah, he's definitely on my get list.

    Hmm, that’s strange I’m positive I bought mine for the price I stated when I got mine from their website a few weeks ago. Maybe I’m wrong though, I’ve been quite lucky to buy some more transformers since then.

    Transformers Studio Series Deluxe Chevy Bumblebee IMPORT STOCK

    PRE-ORDER Transformers Studio Series Deluxe Chevy Bumblebee

    The import is 23.99 and uk stock is 19.99. Maybe you got it mixed up? Doesn't matter anyway, the import is out of stock. :lol

    Aha yeah apologies, my mistake. I snapped up the import as soon as I could when I saw it go live after semi stressing about either preordering him or looking for him on eBay. He completed my SS 2007 lineup of Autobots.

    On a random note ID toys has had a sneaky restock it seems, SS-38 Bee movie Prime is back in stock and I just snapped him up since he’s basically been a myth to me up until now.

    You would think these stores would get the hint about how long Cyberverse stuff sits on the shelves compared to the more “mature” lines.

    I wonder if that’s just a re stock about to happen or it’s the aftermath of a post Christmas sale?
