    Not really sure about Hasbro's setup for MCM. In Demand are good people and it makes sense collabing with established YouTube reviewers but the result was a very cramped area where it was hard to actually look at/photo the toys because people wanted to hang around to talk to the YouTubers. I lost a good half hour trying to take photos of 1 case because 4 guys and a YTer decided right in front of the case was the ideal space to chat.

    Also reminds me of how companies that used to exhibit at MCM started deputising. In particular GoodSmileCompany from Japan made a push a few times and then sublicensed to a UK company who literally just showed up with some Ikea cabinets full of figures.

    Went to the FP in central London a few days ago, I was surprised to see a big full shelf for TFs compared to the last time I was there, especially with the Cyberverse dinobots…?
    They also had some 86 Sweeps and wreckgars at the very bottom.

    their big display cabinet had the toon deco 5-pack and some selects/MP as usual, along with the GiJoe crossover soundwave.

    also I haven’t been keeping up with the sightings but @Black Convoy is this the first UK sighting of the page punchers?

    voyagers, leaders & new deluxe look like rrp and the older deluxe look to be cheaper than online.. shows how many years it's been since I went to forbidden planet London, they always used to be above rrp in the past, it you were lucky there would be some "sale" stock at rrp somewhere else in the store.. might pop in there Tuesday when I'm in town

    Thanks man, but damn it Nemesis has already sold out :(  Does anyone else know where I may pick up Nemesis for that price? As Hasbro labelled him ‘outlet’ I’m assuming he’s gone for good from there now.

    Smyths may have her for that price in store.

    MAY as in listed on website, but none showing in stock anywhere which means it's a 1 left situation

    I agve up on a cheap Nemesis - I kicked myself after passing up on indemand price drop last year where I had it in my basket and decided I spent too much that month.
    Missed the Smythes discount and again missed the Hasbro Pulse, saw it climbing up to near £200 agia on Amazon in March this year and found one at £170
    Wasn't going to end up with another Earthspark Titan Scorponok where after the initial lot that arrived in the UK it never came back and then jumped to £300
    REALLY hoping Tidal Wave gets deep discounted as not attached to the character really, but Nemesis was a must to match with the Ark

    Given what happened with Black Zarak and various Legacy toys, wouldn't surprise me if Nemesis shows up at one of the dedicated discount sites.

    I'd keep checking Pulse for a little while, as it may briefly come back into stock. I had that with Classified Sgt Slaughter last year. Absolutely gutted I missed out on it but I kept checking and a few days later he popped back into stock briefly.

    Thanks guys, I’ll keep an eye out! I was hoping bargainmax or the line might eventually get it in, I’ve always bought at full price before and the ONE time I don’t :lol

    Ok so Ultimate Primal from Maqio had arrived FAST!

    It was dispatch yesterday (thought it was going to dispatch last Monday but forgot it was a back holiday) and it arrived half an hour ago.

    That being said, it was not cool that they didn't send me an email it was on its way. Only learned of it by accident when checking the tracking number again minutes ago. It was left in front of the house! Prefered to have it delived at the side door since it is harder to see at the side door when compared to the front door!


    You just gonna have to be paitience and wait for the long game now. It may show up at a discount sooner or later like in GAME or some website. Definitely be on the hunt on Black Friday. If you're lucky, Hasbro Pulse will have it on sales!

    Yeah I got those two emails aswell but not on the same day but that was intentional (I bought it on the weekend but they got the weekend off).

    I just find it strange that they don't send an email saying it's out for delivery like Amazon or other websites does. Like seriously if I didn't check the tracking number, it would of been still on the front door for longer!

    thats down to amazon shipping not maqio. if you register the parcel against your amazon account or at least ensure the parcel has contact details saved you DO get those updates by both email and text.
