    both those have gone back up in price but still cheaper than they were to begin with.

    trypticons 126.92 stg and the insecticons are 49.99 stg.

    by the way for those interested both are "prime" so once its over 25 stg its free postage to ireland.

    i mention it because theyre doing age of extinction snarl for 6.50 stg and age of extinction drift for 10.99stg and if ya bought them you'd get hit by the postage costs as even together theyre under it.

    im looking at two DVDs for the brother that only come to 20 stg and am thinking of using one of em to push it over the limit.

    :D

    oh and battle core optimus prime is going for 23.99stg too.

    im raging i didnt get the trypticon when it was 78 pound. with the exchange rate recently it was working out as circa 112 euro . still its early in the new year and they might do a "sale" back to that price yet.

    Toys R Us have randomly got Generations Double-Dealer in stock and for delivery: http://www.toysrus.co.uk/toys/transformers-generations-voyager-double-dealer/015295107

    Smyths have added listings for CW Wave 4 limbs: http://www.smythstoys.com/ie/en-ie/toys/action-figures-playsets/c-344/transformers/?page=1&pagesize=12&viewall=False&sort=sortattr_createdate%20desc&fz=False

    Given they actually stocked Ultra Magnus, perhaps there's a chance. Where's my white Prime?

    In Toys R us at Blanch if anyone's after this Monstrosity


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,988 ✭✭✭ constitutionus


    They had prowl mirage and sunstreaker in tallaghts smiths today too .

    I reckon battlecore prime is a cert as it'd be a bit mad to have all the limbs and not him .

    By the way no comic with em so its not the stuff I've seen goin on amazon . They got more magnus s in too along with a smattering of whirl / rhinoxs for 15 quid ( limbs are 21.99 )

    Hmmm, he's gone now. That's a shame. I wouldn't mind getting him at that price.

    here mark meant to say thanks for that post.

    went over last week and picked him up so now ive got a complete optimus maximus.

    :D

    someone was trying to hide the fecker though as there was none obviously on display and ya had to go rooting behind a hotspot to find the two of em that was left.

    oh and trypticons back up on sale for £99.99 on amazon which is about €133 or so. its another prime one so free post to ireland.

    just had a walk through tallaghts smyths today and all the limbs for OM are gone now. only a load of dragstrips left.

    still a few mangus's though for those interested.

    Masterpiece Sunstorm supposedly down to 30.00 GBP on TRU UK.

    Kinda gaudy... but how often are you gonna get a Masterpiece that cheap these days?

    (Argos Skywarp was 6 years ago)


  • Registered Users Posts: 10,722 ✭✭✭✭ chopperbyrne


    Combiner Wars Ultra Magnus is in Smyths Tallaght for €63 (I think?).

    Was very tempted.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,139 ✭✭✭ MarkHall


    He's a great figure. Be more than tempted. And get him.

    I actually think he looks nice in person, as a jet at least. There's not too many legit yellow Masterpieces.


  • Moderators, Entertainment Moderators Posts: 1,773 Mod ✭✭✭✭ ChopShop


    No retail sighting yet, but CW Onslaught appeared on Smyths website.

    Think he and Scattershot were seen *somewhere* at UK retail recently...

    And a solitary CW Prowl and Battle Core Optimus in Smyths Jervis St this morning.


  • Registered Users Posts: 79 ✭✭ Arquinsiel


    Anyone happen to see a lone Streetwise shelfwarming anywhere? I decided I totally need him after months of not caring when I noticed Prowl in Smyth's Swords just before Christmas.

    Easons in town?

    Or are they all out?


  • Registered Users Posts: 79 ✭✭ Arquinsiel


    They were down to just Legends class last I was in, and while they were actually the cheapest I've seen them since 2014 the Deluxes when they were available were pricier than anywhere else. Argos might have some lurking around, but they're asking 30+ for them.


  • Moderators, Entertainment Moderators Posts: 1,773 Mod ✭✭✭✭ ChopShop


    Masterforce had a few listed for 12gbp.

    With Sterling a little weaker at the moment, and if you ask them to post it without the packaging, you might get closer to local price?

    went by smyths in tallaght yesterday and theyve got the white optimus in.

    still no sign of any limbs though beyond dragstrip.

    they seem to be doing a major upgrade or something as half the shelves are emty and the TFs have been moved to an aisle as opposed to the end of one near the DVDs where they were.

    oh and that trypticons gone back up to £131 on amazon.

    have no idea why he's bouncing up and down on the cost stakes as it seem to be the same sellers putting him up so if ya still didnt get him i bet its just the wait of a month or two to see him back below £99.

    Arnotts? I never even would have thought of that. Thanks man. Stupid boards not notifying me at all though... I'll check tomorrow when I head into town.

    Combaticon Limbs appeared on Smyths Website.

    They may never materialise, but am kinda surprised it even got this far.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,139 ✭✭✭ MarkHall


    Not sure I want to go for repaint limbs. since i have most of them several times now.
    But I may get Brawl and Onslaught as I quite like the look of them.


    And Onslaught has a dance partner on the shelves

    And a new lot of Springers and Skybyte are on the shelves for 15 bucks again.
