    I think somebody said Energon Igniters Ironhide and Soundwave had shown up in HB for £6.99 each. Neither is in my branch though.

    There are restocks coming on a lot of earlier studio & siege figures by the looks of it (not just on amazon).

    I paid the eqivalent price ordering ss32 from amazon japan this week along with a few other bits although prices have now gone up. It's obviously in the takara box rather than uk/english though ordering from jp. Got next day delivery too from to the uk.

    Omegalock has got the latest studio leader, voyager, deluxe waves in, including mixmaster and scavenger but not mv1 megatron.

    Smyths now show the studio series soundwave/bumblebee deluxe wave as no longer available so looks like it was a short lived release.

    So Kapow Toys just restocked Siege Omega Supreme and TR Trypticon (£129.99, i wish we got those $80 ones like America does).
    Also in the comments someone asks about the current Studio Series wave and they said some have come in and the rest should arrive this Friday.

    TR Trypticon had been on clearances for ages between uk sellers inc amazon (£75 on amazon). FP Birmingham had a couple in at £60 in July.

    Siege Omega is @ £150 is a tad high. Presume discount incoming.

    Yeah, funny these ones, bought in for sales like the 2-pack Op and Scream that started at 30 and went down to 7-50, and the RID Warriors a while ago, odd that they are getting these 'B+M/HB' lines in too, it used to be they would only stick the one-off bigger items (electronic Bee springs to mind) for Christmas sales and the like.
    Anyway, keep an eye out for them going down in a few weeks, but I doubt they will go under a tenner, and personally I didn't want any of these particular figures, typical (to my cost I bought a few of the RID warriors then ditched them to my dealer mate for space).

    There's none in our local, I was hoping for a restock but have been waiting since it was reported.

    I see studio series shockwave already out of stock at omegalock. They seemed to have loads when I ordered at the weekend.

    Presume high risk of not making it to the uk officially in widespread distribution still.

    Smyths seems to have a drought of TFs this week still.

    Any idea when ID are getting their studio series in? Kinda annoying that everywhere else, even Smyths, is getting stock before the one I ordered with o_O

    Kapow just said today that they've only received half the figures for the wave so far with the rest due on Friday.
    ID are probably in the same position.

    No, no UK release, no "importers" have had them save for the couple InDemand had at TFNation.

    I'm told Target has them reduced - Ben's World of Transformers - if you can find a chum in the US to get you one.

    They have started to show up in Home Bargains and Quality Save if that helps? The £3.99 ones. Seen them on two branches so far

    Apologies, I meant studio shockwave. Siege shockwave is still £30 in smyths though.

    Astrotrain is still £49.99 @ kapow. That wont change until we get the earthrise wave repack as release has been v limited IIRC.
