    Thanks! (it wasn't me however)
    I saw their FB posts on Friday and Saturday so ended up having to put 2 separate orders in due to them taking so long to put the stock up.
    Dead Optimus for my Brother in law and this for me :)

    TK Maxx at Wandsworth now has 2 X GrimWheel, Buzzworthy Shatter and 3 x ER Arcee. No Sludge or Slugster.......of course.

    This was one weird selection of Bots to just suddenly appear like this. Where do we think they got dumped from?

    Following a tip off on Facebook, I popped to the national sci fi museum and there he is! £2700 tho.

    Some other nice stuff too, but no bargains

    That's obscene.

    It's also not a US exclusive.

    Everyone in the UK got the option for £605 delivered, from Kapow.

    Wow.

    They have to try and justify (to people who don't know) why they are asking so much and trying to rip people off lol
    Hoping for that one day an idiot who has come into some money or knows no better walks into the shop.

    So far I've seen WWII Bumblebee and Bumblebee & Charlie - not found car Shatter yet - who I wouldn't mind owning.
    I hope they keep getting more like this - heck imagine if they got a stack of World's Collide sets - people would go nuts.

    I still don't regret passing on him, as I still don't like the gaps, the missing paint and the colour choices and I also think it's at least £200 over priced as well. I could buy an actual sized stuffed pony with a metal interior frame that you can sit on for £600 or a fairly decent replica 1-1 scale model Dalek or a stuffed Pokemon that is nearly bigger than I am. So I didn't think it was well priced really.

    That said people are paying £1000-£1400 for them these days sometimes one will get bid up to £1600.

    I'd consider it if they ever repaint it in a colour I actually like - but the default one is just not my bag.

    Do you think the *cough* idiots *cough* paying this are doing so from FOMO or thinking that it's an investment?
    I'd already missed the boat on him when he was able to be ordered originally sadly but the second I saw them on eBay from the "fans" who bought them for these prices I knew I was out. No amount of FOMO will ever get me to pay that much knowing the person selling it is likely making a fortune off of a lucky bet.

    I regret ordering 01-Studio Cell when I had the option and regretably more so Pumpkin when he was less than £200 from Show.Z.
    But still stand fast and laugh out loud to myself when I see him being "sold" in FB group for £300+
