    There's nothing quite so truly Christian as buying your stock at clearanced Wholesale then listing it at full, first-released RRP, eh?

    I found the Wheeljack and Arcee Beast Alliance figures at my local B&M. So they might still pop up for people. Got Pablo just for the fun of it.

    Was Rodders ever that expensive? That's £20 more than I paid at release!

    WOW! You're RIGHT he was around £40 squid originally!
    And my opinion of "The Toy Shop" was already so low!

    That’s Game. Not The Entertainer.
    I found Hot Rod at the same price in the Argylle Street Game in Glasgow.

    Amazon have the little ROTB Battle Masters Airazor. Can’t remember if she was ever released at retail here. A little pricey but if you need her for your collection you may want to hurry. There’s only 3 left.

    They’ve also got Core Tasmania Kid. I know he’s been a hard one to get. Sold by Amazon EU.

    Also I got my answer with my store having three SSGE Optimus online but none on the shelf weeks ago. I bought one and there's still one left if anyone interested. Let me know asap cos I assume the last one won't be there for long. EDIT- Someone has already PM me to get the last one.
    Oh almost forgot, this is a clear case of store to store basis as the till ring him up as £20 until I pointed out the sticker. That being said, from the website it "appear" he is sold out in every stores or possibly could still be around as the hidden last one that don't appear on the website.

    Lastly the last Strongarm was £7 but it was place on the exit side of the clearance table when I saw Optimus. Saw her when heading out but pop back in soon afterwards.

    Went to Smyths in Carlisle yesterday. They had all the current stuff including Magmatron out on the aisle and in the clearance section they had Primal for £30, passed on because I already had him, and WFC Bee for £12.

    I wish Smyths would get their stock listings sorted on the website. Finding something in store is just a roll of the dice!

    Usually it’s a safe guess to add 1 to the stock list.

    I seem to have bad luck with clearance and Smyths. Either nothing or I get there before it's even reduced but it's on the clearance section at full price...
