    Most of the kingdom wave 3 are now listed as having early to mid august release dates now on smyths. Pulse hasn't followed suit yet.

    Game's ownership, or at least some of it, is as per House of Fraser's, so see earlier in this thread for the lottery saga. Watch out in case Game's refund process is the same as HoF's.

    Is Grapple available for a bargain price anywhere without going through a lottery purchase?

    yes. just buy 1 from HoF/SD. Its almost certain to be Grapple! I ordered 5 voyagers and it was 4 Graps and 1 Screamer!

    Or you can take 1 of mine for £16 posted

    Forgive me if this has already been asked, but is there any word of any UK stores like Kapaow or ID (perhaps even pulse) getting the worlds collide 4 pack, the origin bumblebee, or the beast wars ravage? I'm aware these have only hit shelves in select regions seemingly ahead of street date, and the ravage is an con exclusive, but with the nature of the mainline, and especially exclusives, I want to jump on these before they cost me an arm and a leg

    Ravage set is a pulsecon exclusive for later this year, it’s currently only up on Hasbro Pulse US hopefully the UK one to follow suit soon, I don’t think any of our retailers re getting them sadly

    AFAIK the BW Ravage set is a/the TF Pulsecon exclusive, I believe it's been pre-listed on Pulse US but isn't on Pulse UK as yet (as confirmed by @jon trooper whilst I was composing this post). Pulsecon is likely sometime in August so he may drop then. Pulse UK does have some of the prior Buzzworthy Bee exclusives on-site so fings crossed that they also might drop the latter ones around the same time but nothing's set in stone, I believe the only retailers to do the Worlds Collide thus far are TF Source, and RobotKingdom so both known listings accessible to us Global TF Fans so far have been pretty pricey import options.

    A lot of the Buzzworthy stuff has been easily available through UK sources so far so I don't think it's panic stations yet.

    I got my Worlds Collide for £120 inc shipping from Robotkingdom who are now sold out. I can easily sit that, and the studio series vs packs being Home Bargains/B&M fodder as silly season aproaches

    Take this as a "He tell me" but I have a friend who works for TheToyshop.com/Entertainer, and he said they were offered the Buzzworthy Bumblebee line for the UK and Ireland, but they didn't take it.

    So aside from importing, Hasbro Pulse UK is your only potential option, and with it being released in the USA, they may start popping up on EBay or sales group.

    Huh! Looks like the gamble paid off after all. Didn't see that one coming. :eek:  Well, I also ordered Sky Lynx from Sports Direct, but I wasn't expecting any delivery this early. Maybe tomorrow?

    At thirty quid for Red Alert! Pull the other one, OmegaLock. I expected better from you. :rolleyes:

    My Game has now moved into the new sports store that just opened. Not only do they not have any new Transformers, but now they don't even have the TF they did have on the shelves right before they moved. :(

    I can pick you up the sludge if its still there tomorrow if you want. Rrp plus whatever the postage is. I'll also be in St hellens then Warrington for hospital appointments so I can see if they have snarl aswell.
