    Some stores getting stock on netfix deluxes again so showing scrapface in stock etc.

    just wondering what are the chances of finding MicroMasters Direct-Hit / Power Punch at retail? Cheapest I've found them is at Indemand but it's as part of a 2 pack with some Cassette guys. I'd rather get them on there own (otherwise I'd then feel compelled to get all the cassette toys... a very real risk)

    Siege: Next to zero, unless you've got an open specialist store near you which has a rogue pair shelf warming. Games & Cards has a single preorder at TRANSFORMERS WAR FOR CYBERTRON - SIEGE: MICROMASTERS - DIRECT-HIT & POWER PUNCH (PREORDER) but I wouldn't rate their chances of having them filled after this time. Might be worth an email though....

    However we are aware that they were due to get an Earthrise re-release:

    UPC/EAN barcode list for modern Transformers toys

    Direct-Hit & Power Punch (Battle Squad): Hasbro product code # E9838, EAN # 5010993704408

    By contrast, for the Siege version, WFC-S47 Direct-Hit & Power Punch (Battle Squad): Hasbro product code # E8531, UPC # 630509886456

    They are due end of the month/ early July at the moment. I'm assuming they slipped due to Covid or something. The supplier is pretty solid and while dates change a lot, stuff always turns up in the end.

    Smyths Cancelled my Netflix Ultra Magnus Order and then put it up again on the site as a pre-order with a delivery in July.

    Thought i'd mention it in case people don't always see such e-mails saying things have been cancelled.

    Wasn't there a deal where Astrotrain was available for C&C very briefly and then not at all? I managed to get one, plus the Netflix UM came in the post earlier this week.

    He's out in smyths stores, just buy from there rather than online.

    Not so practical when I live 50 miles away from the nearest store.
    I just re-ordered it as a pre-order if they cancel it again I can also try somewhere else I guess - but he's going to be a pain to get if the don't let me have it.

    I guess I should buy another set of gap fillers and leg extenders as I think Magnus looks way nicer if he's taller. Shame there isn't a slightly different Cybertron Optimus kit that I don't have that has them or even a repaint as it is I'm going to even up with a lot of leftover bits I don't need. which I don't mind if there is some crossover - but there isn't always. Looks like I'm going to need at least 2 More Dr Wu kits & one other now just to fill all the gaps in and give him a bump up in height.

    Hopefully Hasbro will actually sell the Netflix Deluxes still to people that are not Smyths as Smyths are the chocolate teapot of toystores when it comes to running an online business properly.

    Someone was asking about wanting just Ratbat & Rumble - perhaps you can share.
    Though with Earthrise Soundwave being a cassette player maybe it might be worth relenting and getting the cassettes anyway.

    This is very much not a U.K. sighting, but for Netflix Siege Hotlink it seems the Takara releases will not be exclusives to one particular store.

    Which makes me wonder if Kapow will fulfil their preorders via Takara, because they have not cancelled my preorder yet.

    If you are wanting a preorder then Hobbylink Japan do have them up now, and maybe Amazon.jp will do too. Sorry this is somewhat off topic but desperate times call for desperate measures! WFC-06 Transformers: War for Cybertron Hotlink

    At Comics & Cocktails now too!
    I hope there isn't a Netflix/Smyths Level cock-Up in motion, and that Hasbro have just got the Fan-Channeling right this time!

    That's the seekers pre-ordered with ID toys, looks like I'll be getting the conheads too when they come about, that'll be 6 virtual same molds on my limited shelf space in the long run but damn it if I miss out on Skywarp or Thundercracker

    Went to Smyths in Newry and they had the full contents of a Netflix Deluxe case, at least two cases worth of Netflix Voyagers as well as whole ER wave 1, Studio Series Mixmaster, Scrapper and Megatron. So, their website is a lie.

    Forgot to mention they had Rescue Bots Grimlock. For anybody not in the know a case of Netflix Deluxes consists of:
    Scrapface x1
    Chromia x1
    Mirage x2
    Sideswipe x2
    Hound x2
