    There's a Sludge in Middlesbrough Forbidden Planet for £56, guy running the store seems pretty confident he can get more.

    Not yet. I think London Comic Con might have caused some delays.

    Didn't scroll back too far, but couldn't see £12 voyagers at GAME in-store mentioned? Picked up Quint Judge today, Megatron E38? a few days ago.

    I've seen people on twitter with £12 Megs, check my game pretty regularly and they're stuck with the same £19 Waspinator and Wheeljack

    For those asking about Sludge in Smyths, my local store had 6 on the shelf, at £55.99 each. He’s still not on the website but stores are obviously getting deliveries.

    Okay, now Smyths are taking the mickey. Drag Strip is back down to £22, but Wildrider has gone up to £24 in its place. Oh, and the price for Motormaster has raised to a whopping £102! If Smyths keep this up, they'll go the way of Toys R Us. :sly2:

    It's not a good look is it? I'd taken to waiting for Smyths on the last few years as distribution improved. But now Hasbro UK have slipped back into their old ways, and Smyths is suffering more than Kapow or ID are. Add in the yoyo prices, and I'm feeling pushed back into preordering online to lock in a price and get it sooner, rather than waiting to get anything in person at Smyths.

    Now, I think this is external factors- inflation causing Hasbro UK to revise it's RRP over and over as supply chain problems erode at the prompt shipments they were getting into the UK market in the last few years. But they're still factors, regardless of the cause.

    Brexit surely isn't helping. Leading figures have said that's why food prices have gone up, so I can't imagine a luxury like toys isn't facing similar.
