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.

All Argos stock of the Leader class, Titanium's etc are currently in the warehouse (Distrubition center in Stafford, UK) and should arrive in store Monday or Tuesday.

However. You can ring and reserve the figures ready for collection on Wednesday.

Loads of Cybertron deluxe's (Mostly Unicron) and Primus figures.
Cybertron mini cons and Legends figures.

Attacktix (spelling ??) figures

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?

The HMV here's had the odd toy before... usually only a handful of whatever's ultra-trendy whatever week (Darth Tater etc.) or as a big tie-in (I seem to remember them doing a few X-Men around one of the movies, and Lara Croft), but it's not exactly shocking to hear they'll be selling a few TFs. Shame they're likely to subscribe to the same philosophy as they do with the rest of their non-sale stock (i.e. look at RRP; add 1.50; smash case in; file in a totally arbitrary genre section; employ staff on bizarre system where they're rated by number of piercings and/or hilarity of trendy facial hair and ability to say a few stock phrases like "Scarface is an awesome film", "The second album wasn't as good as the first, they've sold out, man" and their ability to leave piles of stock in any aisle).

HAHAHA....you've hit the nail on the head there, cant argue, been working there for 6 years and thats true. We've done toys before, Mcfarlane and the like but I'm just looking to get discount on them...cant argue with that really.
