Anyone who doesn't have Animated leader Megatron and Bulkhead but meant to pick them up- they are now available (with free Activator no less) in Toys'r'us for the bargain price of Â£19.99. Woo!
"I used to think it was a terrible thing that life was so unfair. Then I thought, 'what if life were fair, and all of the terrible things that happen to us came because we really deserved them?' Now I take great comfort in the general unfairness and hostility of the universe." — Marcus Cole, Babylon 5 — A Late Delivery from Avalon
Popped into Sainsburys whilst home visiting my parents to find they had indeed a 2 for 1 offer (the Taunton branch actually carries toys!) and got an Ironhide and Silverstreak.
They had Silverstreak, Acid Storm, Sideswipe and Galvatron left. If anyone wants one, give me a bell before um, 10am on Sunday and I can pick them up whilst I'm still here. But Galv is a fiver on play.com so you're better off getting him there
Tssk. My local Sainsburys had a single Universe Ironhide. I wish I could have combined it with an Animated Sentinel Prime.
In other news, FPL are selling 'cut price' Henkei Ironhide and Galvatron for 13.99 each. I'm almost tempted to buy the Galvatron, even though I have his Universe equivalent. The silver paint on the gun turret is quite nice. Ironhide looks quite good in a decent shade of red, though I've been put off by the reviews on this and other forums.
The Universe Delexus have finally turned up in the local ASDA. But they are not £6! They are...£5! Galvatron, Ironhide, Acid Storm, Sideswipe and Silverstreak. They are not in the regular toys section, nor the sales section. Nay, they are placed in the home entertainment section, beside the large screen LCD TV's. Who knows how long they have been there. I noticed them by accident, looking for cranberry juice!
In the other news, the Animated Activators which were £5.86 are now £4.86. Previously, they shelf warmed. Now they fly off shelves at a mighty rate.

Acid Storm is a lovely little toy. He is a good mold, with a very effective colour scheme. I paid the full thirteen earth pounds for him and think he is well worth it. For a fiver I would say you wouldn't go far wrong.
Poor Ironhide has Last Item Syndrome. ASDA blew through their stock in two days and he has shuffled around the store ever since. I have found him in several exciting locations, including the fruit bit. I felt it was my duty to return him to his shelf. But now the Universe shelf-tag has been taken away. He will not be joined by any of his Universe chums.
I fear Ironhide may be doomed to roam around ASDA...forever.
