In a strange turn of events Toys R Us UK have posted a reply to a question on Facebook regarding a UK release of Masterpiece Soundwave stating that the figure will be released on these shores in August of this year!! We encourage fans to take this news with a large pinch of salt but if it does happen expect to find fans rejoicing in the asile for this figure.

Masterpiece Optimus Prime is hitting Toys R Us UK stores this week.  If you pop along to your local store and the figure is not already on the shelf you should be able to pre-order the toy for £99 which works out as $155.  He's taken his time in arriving but the figure is expected to sell well.

Happy hunting

FullMetalHero have posted a reply from Hasbro U.K regarding upcoming Transformers releases. The answer is as pretty generic as you would normal expect, basically saying stock will depend on demand and to try Toys R Us as they have the most listed, but you can view the reply below.

Thank you for your email and we apologise for the delay in our response.

Regarding Fall of Cybertron, we do not currently have confirmed dates as this can change depending on availability and retailer demand but we are bringing in new waves of Deluxe and Voyager throughout next year and Toys r Us will be a good place to find these lines as they have them listed. We are not aware of any double packs scheduled for UK release.

The Kreon Microchangers are currently available from retailers such as Tesco, Asda and Sainsburys.

Kind regards

Great news for UK Transformers fans who, like us, have not yet picked up a MP-10 Masterpiece Optimus Prime as Hasbro UK have confirmed on their Facebook page that the figure has now arrived within the UK and will go on sale in Toys R Us stores over the coming weeks.  Their exact post was "Hi Guys, we're pleased to say that stock arrived in the UK last week. You should see it in Toys R Us stores in the next few weeks. Please keep in touch with your local store to understand their stock plans."

Transformer Toy Sightings

Hello TF@The Moon,

Toys R Us no longer list Masterpiece Rodimus on their website. It seems odd, the toy was released only six months ago, and there are still plenty on shelves. Down here in Exeter, they've always had between 4 and 6 on the shelf - if anything, I would guess they are overstocked.

Perhaps people who were waiting for a price cut or online offer should act quickly to get one while they can!

Over the last week and a bit sightings have started to trickle in of the previous unreleased PowerCore Combiners Undertow and Salvage.  These sightings are spreading across Toys R Us stores over the country so keep an eye out for those as well as on their website.

Transformer Toy Sightings­Following on from the good news yesterday regarding the Kre-O Transformers line, Mike Cicharski has got in touch with us with some bad news if you are a Marvel Universe and Transformers Generations fan - both lines haev been dropped by Toys R Us.

Thank you for your email regarding Marvel Universe and Transformers Generations figures, I have contacted our buying department and they have advised that we have no further orders in place for both of those ranges and that they are being discontinued.

I am afraid we have sold through the remaining stock of the transformers Generations figures throughout our stores nationwide. With regards to the availability if the Marvel Universe figures we do have a lot of stock available in other stores, if there are any specific figures you are looking for we can attempt to locate them and have them transferred to Merry Hill.

Once again thank you for taking the time to contact us,

Yours Sincerely

Rumour - Has Toys R Us UK Dropped the Kre-Os?

This is just a rumour at the moment, as we are trying to get an official comment from Toys R Us or Hasbro, but it appears that Toys R Us may have dropped the Kre-O line ... either that or it's just the Toys R us near us.

When I visited our local TRU a few weeks back there was a large range of Transformers products, the newly launched Kre-O range was positioned right at the entrance.  Roll on a few weeks and they are no-where to be seen, their spot replaced by CARS.

A visit to the "boys toys" isle was one area of the previous Transformers stock replaced with Power Rangers, and the second area halved in space, with a Buy One get One Half Price offer on.  There was also more Grimlock's then even Simon Furman would want.

I wondered around the store checking for signs of Kre-O's.  Would they be in the Lego section .. no.  Would they be in the discount section .. no.  They were no-where.

So, have you spotted any Kre-O's in stores near you recently?  Do you work for Toys R us can official comment on the situation.  Let us know.
