    It's been long established that Smyths operate a deliberate "Surprise Stock" policy where stores will often have at least one of an item listed as out of stock for that branch on their site, probably in part to protect against shoplifting "wastage"/"but your site said it was in stock" incidents but also as an impulse buy marketing ploy.

    After a scrapface and keeping an eye on York’s stock, though I thought it was still only click and collect? Are stores allowing people to go into stores now, was thinking it was from the 15th?

    Just Northern Ireland stores are fully open for now. Don’t know about the rest of the UK. Also, don’t trust their website when it’s gonna be physically open.

    Does anyone know what this range is? I haven’t seen them before but they turned up in B&M but aren’t priced yet. They had G1 versions of Starscream, Megatron, Grimlock, Bumblebee and Prime. Very basic, hollow (Bee is essentially flat) but quick and easy transformation for kids.

    It's a shame we miss out on Authentics Wave 1 Titan Changer Optimus Prime.
    I wonder if they will get Ratchet and Soundwave as well (another scale).

    Now have to split the pre-order. Kind of annoying, they were originally all due August so I ordered them together.

    Yea, he is due in this Friday.

    They still have stock for pre-order too.

    eBay prices on Scrapmetal at an all time high too.

    I bought the sole Scrapface at Belfast Forestside this evening- to save any NI folk a wasted journey.

    I only order by size class. Much easier as most things come in at seperate times nowadays

    I saw them in my B&M today. They rang up at £12.99 each so I didn't buy them. Felt too expensive for what they are, especially in a discount retailer. It's the kind of thing Home Bargains would sell for around £7.99 if they stocked them. But I suppose the Alphas in B&M already being £7.99 they had to up the price because of the larger size.

    Smyths website has listings for Earthrise Doubledealer and Quintessong Judge, as well as some of the Cyberverse battle call figures.
