    I found some Cyberverse Deluxes in my local Home Bargains today, specifically Soundwave and Prowl (someone must've beat me to the Hotrod), plus Megatron, Bumblebee and Windblade. £8.99 each.

    Warriors rather than Deluxe?

    It's all the same to me. I call them Deluxes because fundamentally that's what they are.
    Does anybody *really* call them Warrior Class? Everyone knows what I mean when I say 'Deluxe'.

    I imagine the clarification was requested because they're bringing out Cyberverse toys which are actually being called Deluxes now/soon, specifically the ones which come with a part for the Macadam build-a-fig, which are more elaborately engineered/detailed than the Warrior figures (I believe)

    Okay. But I doubt such things would've been hitting stores like Home Bargains at this time if they're so new.
    Plus I don't really follow the news (the stuff reported I rarely ever actually find so no point keeping up with it) so I didn't know about 'Deluxes' now being their own thing. Although now I do I think it's pretty dumb.

    It's fine, I wasn't trying to make you feel bad, I just thought you may be unaware :) 
    I agree it's confusing them using different class names in different toylines for what seem to be the same. I suppose maybe Warriors might technically have slightly lower parts budget or something but I've no idea if that's the case ^^

    Yes Warrior Class is simpler than a Deluxe, *and usually cheaper*
    The sort of description people tend to be a bit lazy about that general no one give much attention to would be calling the Energon Igniters "One-Steps" they don't actually transform in one step but they are packed similarly and are the same sort of size so I think that one usually just slides by - I do people call the Energon Igniter "Scout" class Legions often too - which I kinda agree with as calling something that size scout is needlessly confusing for anyone old enough to know what size scout/basic class actually is supposed to be. I just roll my eyes when Hasbro do stuff like that (such as the endlessly confusing multiple uses of 'Titan' as a term). It wasn't at all helpful muddling up Legion and legends either and then turning around and making a new (small basic size) and calling that legends too - especially when Takara has entire Toylines with the name "Legends" in the title that really wasn't helpful - but then neither was reusing R.I.D. at least 4 times or Cyberverse twice.

    But yeah In this case i'd recommend getting into the habit of calling Nu-RID & Cyberverse Warrior Class by that name as there is an "Actual" Deluxe class as well it would mean you'd likely end up talking at cross purposes now that is the case.

    Thanks for the heads up for Jetfire from Bargainmax, he arrived today! Also for the tip about the £10 code. I ended up tossing in a pack of My Little Pony Top Trumps to push it over the £50 threshold :'D
    He's a chonky lad! I quite enjoy him though :)

    I Don't think Smyths are terribly trustworthy to order from when it comes to pre-orders really they sometimes flake and leave you chasing things.

    I'm pleased Prowl and Soundwave Warrior class have finall showed up - those were something i'd not gotten yet (due to lousy distribution) It would be nice if the other Ultras showed up like Alpha Trion and Prowl too. Or the later waves since Argos seemed to have flaked out on getting newer stock of warrior class and precious few places sold them in the 1st place. Some of those One-step are proving illusive too such as Black Bumblebee (never seen one yet).
