    I didn't notice - are they a lot later than the American dates ?
    I didn't pay a lot of attention to them so far since they are not out until 2022 and nothing jumped up and screamed me as a "must have" enough to be worth the bother & expense of importing it. I might have imported Skids if he was a bit less "meh" and I won't rule it out if I decide to order something else at some point and that lowers the postage charge.

    Oh and just to say that I got an e-mail from Hasbro Pulse to say that my Shattered Glass Gold Bug had shipped.

    No biggie I know but Jetfire has been out somewhere provincial as I picked him up minus one arm at a boot a few months ago.
    not seen Drift before, might go 'uptown' on Saturday for a quick look (and to finally pick up my Sisters of Battle comics).

    Thanks dude.

    Forbidden Planet in London has Waspinator in stock. Solid case, just happened to be in store as they arrived so got the first one!

    Hamley's finally delivered my Roddy today, huzzah!

    They also sent me someone else's order, in its own separate box, but also somehow addressed to me?! It's meant for an address in Ilford (according to the order slip inside) and I'm in Wales, so no idea how they've managed this cock-up?

    Not sure why, but my local Co-op has (as part of a small smattering of Christmas toys and novelties) got hold of a pair of Titans Return Titanmasters. £7.99 each. Apeface and Skytread, I think.

    The wee Mini-Vehicles ones? Probably some remainder stock from around Xmas 2017/8 that got ridonkulously discounted down to a fiver a piece they've found down the back of the warehouse racking?

    Reading Smyth's have tons of SS ROTF Bumblebee and Jolt. Tons of Kingdom Wheeljack and restocks of Airrazor.

    Picked up a Galvatron with corrected shoulders. They had a couple others but I think they also had some with incorrect shoulders. It's hard to tell in bad lighting. I recommend to anyone who isn't sure how to tell, to take a torch and see if you can tell if the tops of his shoulders are smooth. If they are, then you've found a correct one.

    Sonner Toys took SS Sentinel Prime off their site, so I emailed enquiring and they said they weren't sure if they can fulfil it so asked me to choose something else! So much for "All items ordered are guaranteed"

    Hasbro Pulse has the 25th as his release date. ID tends to be a week or two beforehand.

    Just got an email notification that Gen Selects Galvatron is available to buy from ID Toys, I thought it was just pre-orderable again but it was add to basket so guessing it's come in to stock early? (their pinned Facebook post notes December release)

    I thought maybe it was import stock, but searching the website doesn't bring up 2 separate listings if that were the case.

    Hoping it is in stock, but otherwise at least I have a potential order in if its a December release.

    In Smyths Barnet I spied:

    SS-86 Gnaw, Wreck Garr
    SS: Thrust, new Bumblebee with Sam, Jolt
    War for Cybertron: quite a lot including Galvatron, The Ark and lots of spoiler packs on the top shelf
    X-panse (pants?)

    Mainly went in for Jurassic World stuff for my son, I think if ROTF Sideswipe comes out that will be my last of the new lines, if not I'm pretty much done as my son has gone off Transformers.

    Finally caved and ordered Kingdom Ultra Magnus from Hasbro Toy Shop UK on ebay for £34.99.

    A few other TFs with discounts include Beast Megatron for the same price, SS86 Grimlock for £40.99, SS86 Jazz for £17.99 and Kingdom Cyclonus for £19.99.

    Also worth noting they have the "Tricranius Beast Power Fire Blasts Collection" for £36.99 but with free postage, unlike Hasbro Pulse.

    Yeah I had a think about this as the October expected date came and went. Sent a message to Collectible Kingdoms a week or so ago to ask whether they’d heard anything from Hasbro and got no response at all. Has anyone preordered from those guys before?
