Smile Skywarp Vs U.Magnus coming to Woolworths UK

Just been onto the Woolworths site and the have a listing for Classics Skywarp Vs U.Magnus on their website, comically they use completely the wrong toys but still cant wait for it to come out!

Its Priced at 29.99 which is fair enough (Classics starscream 10 + Optimus prime 20 = 30)

no news on when its released though. Glad i didnt import it for a silly price either!

That's a relief - I got them for around 27GBP online. Always worries me that I could lose huge money ordering exclusives online...

But it's great they're coming out at a good price in the UK - they are an excellent set!

ah, my Skywarp collection continues to grow! Funnily enough, I was just looking at the costs of getting this set imported.

Glad I'm not as impulsive as I used to be.

Slag! No Woolies in Leicester now. This means that I have to find some reason to take the journey to Loughborough to find this set, which I absolutely need!!! Or could go to Nottingham, I suppose....

Ooh! I wounder if it will be cheaper now for me if I import from here or from the us?

I REALLY want the classics line because i've never fully collected a line, it's cheap, and there isn't one toy i don't like!

If any of you know please tell me which would be better.

Are you gonna collect the whole line? I don't really see the point in the minicons and am not sure why they were included in this line!

Out of interest - what's on the special DVD in the OP vs Megs box?

Isn't it some thing going over Unicron series? That's all there might be more I think it says in the review.

And I don't plan on getting the minicons.

For my two pennies worth, I actually like the Mini-Cons in the Classics line - it's just a pity only Bumblebee & Cliffjumper seem to be able to link with them.

They are hit and miss, I agree - but Mini-Cons seem to be removed from the general laws concerning transformer proportion conventions these days, and need not have great articulation or be terribly sturdy to support huge weight, so you get novel transformations. Some of which work, while others don't. I enjoy the Dinobot team's transformations loads, but they are a bit weird, and I am looking forward to the Dirt Digger team.

But, hey, they are a bit of an odd inclusion in the line - but one I am glad for.

And the two pack will apparently have an introductory price of 15. If I'm around in the summer (slim chance, admittedly) and see this to pick it up, anyone want a cheap Magnus?

Or you try the Melton Mowbray Wollies...they won't have it as its a small one, but you could try
They did have the Voyager (I think) prime and Megatron for 19.99 each.

EDIT
Dam!! bugger, just checked http://www.woolworths.co.uk/ww_p2/pr...l?pid=50839161

And Bumblebee for seven delivered. Nice find.

Sounds as if that one's packed in a very high ratio...

Wow 7 is really good for Bumblebee. Play must be doing well for the TF sales as they've massively expanded their range in the last few months. Hope they continue to do so as it makes getting hold of things easier. And they don't charge postage!
