    well, Today is the day i'm going to TRU, so I'll post back later with what i managed(or didn't manage, as the case may be), to pick up.
    I already have a great reason for buying three deluxes, I purposely only have £15 in my wallet, and get £5 pocket money tomorrow, so it's a case of.
    "Well, i could spend £10 and get just one, or if you pay my pocket money in advance, I can get three, doesnt that sound like a better deal?"

    (My parents loathe the fact that I buy transformers, as 'It's a very childish thing to do for a 14 year old')

    I know I'm in the wrong sightings forum and DEFINITELY not even in the right COUNTRY, but you can tell your parents that the majority of TF collectors have an average age of 25... So they have nothing to complain about... :thumbs2:

    Big one this. In fact it's one of those moments where rare and cheap combine. Almost as good as finding 15 TM2BAs so cheap it was untrue at the height of the famine.

    The Entertainer in Kingston have new Armada toys in: Airazor w Nightscream, Powerlinx Green Cyclonus and (drumroll) Red Powerlinx Thrust. For a fiver. Needless to say there are no Thrusts left now.

    See here for a pic of the 2 I brought home with me.

    I have seen Universe Railbots before but last night at TRU in York, I picked up Cybertron Railbots. Is this a new thing or have they been around for a while?

    Checking off our delivery today in sunny Argos I came across 4 basic figures. They were:

    Hot Shot
    Landmine
    Thundercracker
    Dirt Boss

    Maybe not overly exciting but it beats the endless snarl/noisemaze combo i've been seeing recently!!

    TRU Chadwell Heath has new Scouts in, Wreckloose, Backstop, Street Spped Minicon Team and the blue repaint of Overhaul are in. They still have their 3 for 2 offer as well, so now's a good time to nab them.
