Hehehehe, Argos is the most mickey mouse shop in the world. If you want anything from an assortment, don't make plans for the rest of the ****ing day... The trouble the staff in some have getting the concept that you don't want the first one Darren In The Storeroom (they're all called Darren) pulled off the shelf is mind-boggling.

So that's where Decepti "I know everything about marketing, I do" Ford****wit landed then. Lucky ol' IDW board...

IDW are actually considering letting him write a Spotlight issue (After months of badgering); and in all likelihood -- they will. No joke. Now I know you're not exactly an IDW enthusiast but . . . Cliffjumper? Cliffjumper?!!!

Leicester Argos has 'withdrawn stock' on the £7.50 6" Titaniums. No one could tell me when any might again be available (that was no surprise, but you just gotta ask). Seems they are concentrating on the new movie releases, but no protoforms.

Disappointed

Argos have pulled the whole movie line until after the 2nd June. Apparently they were made available early by mistake and should be back for sale from Monday 4th June.

Ah-ha! That could explain a thing or two! I also tried entering the codes of two other TF items from the main book, and they came up 'not available'. (NB I didn't enter new movie line codes.)

Guess local Argos, with their infinite ability to fark things up, have stopped all TF sales until 4th June.

On a side note HMV will be selling alot in the way of movie related tat, including a good range of action figures. I should know coz I work there....horah for discount. Unfortunatly we had an embargo placed on them, cant sell them until after monday 4th, which is handy coz that means I pick them up with my Ultimate Transformers The Movie that comes out on monday...ch-ching!!!

The ToyStop in Putney has Leader class Prime and Megs, along with all the movie toys already spotted in Woolies and Argos. I didn't expect to see Megs so early - he has the same 'try me' featire as Prime - a slider on the chest that activates lights and sound.

It's such a small amount.... Well, as the fat woman said, every little helps... Thanks, mate!

AutobotJazz, I shall detour to HMV. The new TF:TM is already on its way to me, so why not?
