    Smyths have some (possibly all) Kingdom figures up for pre-order.

    looks like the voyagers have gone up by a quid, they’re on at £24.99. Is this gonna be the new price or is it just for Kingdom? I’m assuming the former.

    leaders are up to £49.99

    EDIT: deluxes are £17.99 so everything’s gone up in price.

    Has anybody seen ROTF Soundwave in brick and mortar yet? He's on the Entertainer site but not Smyths and I don't really want to pay shipping for it

    It's supposedly just kingdom. I wish they'd hurry up and put orders up for trailbreaker and sunstreaker

    Entertainer Singe & Rung - can anyone who's grabbed one, or is going near an Entertainer, have a look and tell us if there are any import stickers?

    If there are, can we have a photo please?

    Ditto the Primemasters if possible, but less of a concern as they've been genuinely sighted previously

    Anyone here used Sonner Toys before for preorders? I checked up the reviews and they seem legit and it turns out I've been to their physical store in Portsmouth before but I remember it just being Funko POPs and Hot Toys but their online store has Transformers and G.I. Joe.

    Ordered SS Blitzwing off of Amazon when he was on "Temp out of stock, more back in soon" and that was the 18th of September and haven't heard a peep since, should I give up on getting it or what?

    There's a freephone customer service number. It was phoning that on a friend's advice that got them to source me a Scorponok elsewhere in Europe.

    Worth a try. The agent that took my call said Amazon's system basically abandons any long standing out of stock order, so phoning is the only way to get it moving.

    They're still insanely busy sorting through the two months worth of product that arrived from Hasbro, some folks have got blitzwing from them though.

    Ah, well. I'll keep that in mind for the next time this happens, be easier to just cancel it and go with Smyths. Thank you.

    Following up on their stocking of Soundbarrier and Smashdown, Forbidden Planet Manchester today had Slitherfang and Rung tucked away in the top corner of their TF section, along with Snapdragon on the shelves below. If I didn't have one on order from Kapow I'd have picked up Snapdragon there and then. Luckily for someone else, he's still there. I really should start taking pictures of these things.

    The Entertainer, meanwhile, had 2x Studio Series Cliffjumper and a single Topspin, along with a legion of Wave 3 PotP Prime Masters (and I think a few Battlemasters towards the back of the swarm).

    Popped in to Warrington Entertainer and couldn't see any Battlemasters Singe or Rung, bummer as I was hoping to pick up 1 Rung and 2 Singe, did someone report seeing them in there? They had the Prime Masters so I may have mistaken someones sighting of them for the Battle Masters.

    Ah well they've gone now, had a sweep of the store to see if they'd been put/dumped anywhere else and couldn't see them, nor could I see a shelf edge label for them or gap on the shelf for them.

    Oh well maybe somewhere else online will get them back in at some point (though I'd rather get Earthrise Rung for the map piece)
