    Till are are one toys must have the smallest inventory ever for a shop.

    No real contact details either etc.

    Presume they are facebook based / ebay mainly?

    If it's who I'm thinking of it's one of these one man operating out of his house style operations. Or small number of staff? Either way, it's a small independent retailer, which makes sense for why he would have a low number of stock.

    If it's who I'm thinking of.

    What is with Hasbro UK fetish of not letting us complete teams? Studio Series Rampage got a limited release as far as I know, Siege Skywarp only got phantom listings on Amazon and now it looks like the tapes are going the same way preventing people from completing Soundwave's normal 5.
    Hopefully this is just because of the virus and once everything eventually calms down stuff will be imported properly...who am I kidding this'll happen with one of the Coneheads too, won't it?

    Between:

    Omegalock, kapowtoys, Indemandtoys, comicsandcocktails, gamesandcards, staractionfigures, amazon uk, smyths, the entertainer, forbidden planet and various uk based ebay sellers we have had the full release schedule and more.

    The first three have us covered for everything inc coneheads and siege skywarp (when it was out) . Often before the usa gets them, esp with indemand import stock.

    Rampage was back in at various not so long ago at rrp and you could buy from amazon usa for £25 delivered inc shipping and duty for ages recently.

    Amazon japan ships dhl express to the uk when fulfilled by them and pre corona that was door to door often in 24-48hours. They are also often cheaper or the same inc shipping and duty. You could get most of the studio range from them in jan and feb this year still at great prices.

    I think we have it better than the usa.

    Sorry but when did Omegalock, InDemand and Kapow have Siege Skywarp? And the Coneheads haven't even been announced yet, how do you know they're covered?
    Also I was specifically talking about Hasbro UK, I'm fully aware that we can import from Japan and America for stuff like Rampage but the fact we have to resort to that because Hasbro UK won't bring certain things over is a problem still, we shouldn't have to.
    I think the USA has it easier since various retail outlets stock more than the few UK ones we have they never have to worry about something not being distributed in their country even with Japanese releases thanks to Hasbro Pulse.

    I'm sure ID + Kapow did but maybe I imagined it. I went via Amazon USA for mine.

    Both kapow and ID have stated pre orders up soon on coneheads.

    Unless they took down the listing I'm pretty sure they didn't and iirc when ID went to Hasbro UK sometime last year people asked them if Hasbro was planning to bring over the set and they said no.
    Also are you sure you're not thinking of the ER Skywarp + Thundercracker set? Because luckily Kapow has confirmed that the set is going up for PO soon.

    AFAIK They've said Pre-Orders "Soon" for the Earth Mode Seeker 2-pack of Skywarp & Thundercracker not the Cneheads, the Coneheads 2-pack is suspected to be the mysterious "Amazon Earth Mode 2-pack" listing, as the pair from the OG trio are a Target Exclusive, and hasn't actually been confirmed yet?

    EDIT; Ya ninja'ed me @AlienKing!

    Hmmm, must have imagined it re-skywarp then. Amazon USA came good though and at sensible rrp.

    I'm sure they announced they were going to at one stage though but maybe not.

    Yer I'm thinking of the ER Seekers.

    Trying to get a decent stock of Transformers as a small independent is like playing 4D chess with a blindfold over your eyes and your hands glued to hyperactive weasels.

    For anyone after the Selects Tapes pack, the owner of Til All Are One posted on the Facebook page Transformers Selling Unlimited asking those who want it to tag themselves.
