    Not long till Scorponok then too....

    Given how quick jetfire dropped to c£50 on amazon for a sustained period then bargainmax firesale, I can see SL doing similar.

    Strangely Omega Supreme has held value. Presumably due to order volumes and price thresholds so commander class over saturates volumes.

    I went for the first time in 2018 after living in the midlands for years, and annually being tempted to go since it's relatively close by. I probably would have gone through the same decision making process this year, but it's been decided for all of us now.

    Still, now they get an extra 12 months to figure out how to host a show just as safe as it is great. Have they said whether their insurance will insulate them from taking a hit because of this?

    I've checked and Sky Lynx is also arriving at Comics and Cocktails on Friday. It's cheaper than pretty much everywhere else too!

    The others - Chromia and Scrapface - are too but aren't showing on the stock checker thanks to being 1 per case and each store getting 1 case at the moment

    Say since people have been asking everyone about Skylynx did anyone think to ask if that was the only thing due soon (say like Double dealer) ?
    Also any idea if anyone else is going to get Netflix Deluxes in - as I'd like a Scrapface and in Demand is out of stock, so I was wondering did anyone ask in demand if they have more on the way, or if any of the other stores are going to get them.

    In Demand's prices for Earthrise deluxes wave 2 pre-orders is pretty good too at £16.99 each.

    ID have said that Scorponok is due in June, and that Snapdragon and Quintesson are due August.

    This may not be the case: I believe these two are now shipping in separate waves elsewhere in the world - Snapdragon in w2 with a repacked Starscream and Quintesson in w3 with Megatron. The change occurred just as they were solicited so a great many places are still advertising them with the same arrival date

    A similar thing happened last year with Thundercracker and Springer.

    What that means for the solid cases Kapow and IDToys receive is unclear but be prepared for one to arrive in advance of the other.

    Placed a random order from Smyths for Ironworks, had absolutely no intention whatsoever to pick him up, but my plastic crack addiction pressed me to buy it.

    What I didn't expect was to get to Smyths to find out their whole click and collect system had gone down...nationwide. I patiently waited mostly at the amusement of watching everybody else who was waiting, as their frustration and trying to con around the system and not getting their own way (I was waiting about 20 minutes longer than anyone else). The guy handled it really well and explained very clearly that they couldn't just give items out to people without say so from higher up, because they had no way of confirming the orders or checking what people had actually ordered (and therefore confirming receipt and payment from the orders) but the whole time people were complaining for managers, demanding money back from tills etc. :rolleyes:  I hate customers some times and I don't even work for Smyths, felt for the guy.

    Anyway rant over, got my order in the end and just opened him up, cool little dude along the lines of the other Weaponisers that came previous, he'll be a nice little add on to Omega Supreme!

    Their main post, the pinned one, on Facebook has Quintesson and Snapdragon listed as both arriving in August, I was just going based on what it says there. It may be subject to change though.

    Netflix Ultra Magnus is up for home delivery on the Smyths website. Just placed an order. Fingers crossed!

    Edit: It's Friday night, but it's already gone to Ready for Dispatch status, so hopefully will arrive some time next week!
