    Ask and you shall receive! I think this might be more of a big deal than I thought, because I can’t see any evidence of this figure out there online.

    Oh right, what’s the story there? Ex-native gone rogue?

    I'd be all over these if they had proper alt modes. The robot modes are nice, but at the price they are just puts me off when they have this half-and-half instead of proper vehicle modes.
    I'll probably just wait and see if they eventually crop up at car boot sales for like 50p each or something.

    Hasbro UK, and EU, can't sell what they aren't offered.
    This is why Deluxes are a problem at the start of any new line. The US gets first dibs because they're a size class in constant demand, then Europe is offered what is left

    A man after my own (second-hand, but not in that way) heart.
    when I first saw this I though it was the Ratchet one I saw in B+M yesterday, no price though.
    They also had the small and big basic stuff like Megs, the studio series (clunker selection), and the battle masters.
    I bought the ...Shadow Striker? one without knowing they didn't transform a while ago, and again nice bot, but I wont be getting any more given the lack of an alt mode, it is a thing from the series?

    Despite being fairly impressed with at least something to look through in the B+M toy section, this was Clacton, wonder if the Colchester one still has its toy aisle barricaded?....I left instead with some five nights....toys for the boy, and I couldn't resist the party version of the Lego Movie 2 crew, Metalbeard with a keyboard leg, yeah baby yeah!

    Just finished the raisin and biscuit Yorkie Easter egg....wow.

    Laters.

    The Great Yarmouth branch of B&M isn't too bad for toys at the moment. I took great advantage of their Lego reduced section a couple of months ago. Their Studio Series stuff seems to be a matter of lucking out on when they get new stock in, but I've done okay.
    As for the Cyberverse Scouts (or whatever they're called) I got burned on the Grimlock full price back when the world was new and I'm not going to again, even if the robot mode looks good. It's a weird thing when the rest of the series seems to be proper transforming figures and not this half-and-half nonsense. I don't think there's an actual in-show/story reason for it. Pity they've not got a Legion class for this line considering how simple the designs are.

    Also, gotta love keyboard leg Metalbeard. :)

    That seems really cheap. Sure it's not BotBots?

    Cool, curious to see it myself, those are generally about that much for one.
