    Is it common for Amazon to cancel orders on exclusives? Manage to throw in an ironhide/prowl order but it was out of stock. So I'm not too hopeful.

    No flogging required! Been waiting on an Alicon since 1986. Can't wait! :D

    2 Allicons in Smyths Hedge End Southampton today. I didn’t buy because I got one coming from IDT and... I’ll get them discounted for army building, if they ever hit discount.

    Allicon was in Forbidden Planet in Bristol today, along with er Meg and airwave. No Smokeys or Arcee. Bristol Smyths barely had anything.

    Saw Smokescreen in my local Smyths but that was it. Still on the hunt for SS Blitzwing.

    VERY common i it's Amazon UK.

    That set is not due out for a while yet. As it's showing as Not In Stock, rather than a preorder, they'll charge you now, cancel the order down the line and refund you..... by which time the more reliable US pre order is sold out.

    Order from .com if it's a set you want, or at least have a back up pre order in there and cancel the one that doesn't ship first

    Alicon at Smyths, Newry. They had Skipjack, Smokescreen and the Quint Judge still there.

    Anyone after a 5-faced freak, take a squint at the Quint on Smyth's.

    (translation = Quintesson is in stock for delivery)

    Had my invoice for Arcee from Kapow Toys. Might want to be quick though, limited stock so the invoice expires on Wednesday, or at least mine does.

    From my searches this morning, she's still in stock at Smyths and ID Toys too so shouldn't be too much trouble.

    Talking of Earthrise Arcee...

    I found her, plus Airwave, Allicon, Smokescreen - so all of Earthrise Deluxe wave 2 - plus Earthrise Megatron on the shelf in Smyths Toys, Chelmsford. Not unexpected but good to see!

    They also had Studio Series Blitzwing but didn't take a photo of that.

    Smyths website is a tiny bit ****ed this morning, thanks presumably to people trying to buy the new X-Box

    So if you're after w2 Earthrise from them online you're going to need to wait :-(

    Ordered my Airwaves Saturday, got them Monday.

    Yeahh I was really hoping to check if the Warrington Smyths tracker had Arcee and maybe Quintesson Judge and maybe Megatron in stock online so I knew I wouldn't be wasting my time popping in before work to get at least Arcee.

    As it stands without being able to check I'll just hope it comes back on later on and might have to pop tomorrow if she/they are in stock.

    Seriously don't know whether to pick up Earthrise Megatron. I've done so much customizing to my Siege Megatron (painted inside of his legs red, toyhax labels, modded him to give him wrist swivels and more) but I really desperately prefer Earthrise Megs's abdomen with the vents, and the bigger fusion cannon and the Alt mode.

    And still undecided on Quint Judge as I really want the pit set and only have room for one Judge, but...it remains to be seen how easy/difficult the pit set will be to obtain.

    Went into Bolton Smyths today, had a gazillion Allicons but no er megs or the rest of wave 2. Give it a week and I'm guessing they'll be in store.

    FYI in case you haven't noticed his arms are Mushroom pegged and they seem identical (barring ER Megs simplification of 'em), I'm looking at swapping out the arms myself to get rid of the naff black section at the back of ER Megs, as well as head swapping, so you might at least be able to salvage your wrist swivel work?
