    Quick question, is that the only Toxictron figure they have or do they have the others? Also I'm guessing it's £24.99?

    I'm pretty sure that was the only one, and it being Forbidden Planet, most likely £24.99 yeah

    That’s interesting cause Carlisle never had him in and that’s one of my closest stores so I check there a fair bit.

    Also have there been any sightings of the new SS wave in the UK. Specifically Shockwave?

    Remember with Smyths' "secret stock" philosophy "0" on website doesn't always mean "0" on site! Possibly worth a flyby your local if it isn't far out of one's way.

    I wouldn't have my TR Trypticon from Bradford Smyths if not for that, and being able to trade in my defunct TRU card for a little extra off to boot!
    Where else are you speaking of?

    I’ve usually found they have 1 more than they list.

    Damnit... I really need to check my locals at some point once I have sorted out redecorating.
    And GAME used to be like that, and I cannot remember if they still are. A lot of change has happened in the last few months with the company and they changed their till systems (fun fact, they used to be a nightmare to deal with).

    While I know there is a hidden 1 but that apply to store location too?

    Also my Smyths has been long out of stock when it come to Primal and I have no idea which is the next nearest Smyths? Even then I wouldn't go anywhere due to not being familar with the location and how to get there.

    Oh, yeah, GAME, of course - though in my experience it's less deliberate and more slapdash in there case, where Smyths seem to have it as an actual strategy!
    I direct m'learned colleague to my prior post, cf. how I ended up as a TR Trypticon owner, on website at the time stated "! Out Of Stock, Bradford", yet there the magnificent discounted beast was.
    It's no guarantee but it's sometimes a rewarding dice roll!
