Apparently one in the Midlands has the same offer, so I think it's general toy stock they've got in. Shockblast, Swindle and Silverstreak have been sighted. Clamshell packaging.

Trying to decide if I can be arsed -- Swindle's likeable after fiddling with a friend's, much more balanced than Binaltech Hound. Weather today convinced me otherwise, though. I get the impression Shockblast may look better up close than in most of the photos online.

This isn't getting enough contributions to make it worth having at the top of the news forum, IMO. Maybe we can shuffle it back and forth seasonally?

Bit late, but Shockblast's alright if you ignore the pathetic engineering on the head...

Check our nearest Tesco because today I found uni voyagers down to £15 and ulras down to £20. I missed out on Leo Prime and Overlord as I had to catch a bus.

Some walmarts seem to be running a sale on movie Voyagers for $18. Got Mixmaster and Demolisher yesterday and saved $10, whoo.

Seasonal is the key. Most stores run their sales during the holiday prep season. Middle of summer, not so much...

Those are still preposterous prices. You're most the way to a proper toy for that amount.

Those prices don't look any different to me than my store has been selling them since they came in months ago. Though we have now cunningly put Silverbolt in with the ROTF toys in a cunning attempt to shift the bugger.

Just a heads up to all my fellow Canadien Transformer Animated fans out there, seems Zellers is having a sale on Transformers Animated figures. Picked up Megatron usually $59 for $49. Deluxe figures are going for $9. a pop.


Cheers

Toys R Us is having a sale in the UK, Animated Deluxes are a fiver off, Animated and Classic Voyagers are half price, Classic ultras are also half price and the Whirl and Bludgeon twin pack is a tenner off. I didn't get chance to check everything else but I'm pretty sure its a price slash across the board so check it out instore or online.

Anyone in Ireland, and more specifically Cork, Discount World on North Main St got in a bunch of Deluxes; Wave 1 Universe and Waves 1 and 2 Animated. Picked up Prowl, Sunstreaker, Tankor from the former, and Prowl, Blackarachnia, Ratchet, Cybertron Prime and Bumblebee from the latter, €8 each.

Heh. For those that don't have a TRU, go to Wal-Mart and comp it. I'll probably get Voyager Megatron today then.

Careful with that TRU sale. It's only on Universe. They tend to list "Voyager Class Transformers" but only mean a certain line. I ran into that a few months ago when I tried to get some Animated voyagers at half off with a similar sale.

The Range of all places sells Transformers at a tad under retail price (just a pound or so) and have ultras for £15 but they only had Silverbolt so I passed.
