They're usually somewhere around £12 or so. Which still isn't too bad. Shame there's nothing worth getting.

They had some last animated deluxes which I'd not seen before - Waspinator, Elite Guard Bumblebee, Blurr and Swoop.

Where the Animated deluxes on clearance or at a good price. Wouldn't mind getting Swindle and Waspinator.

I don't really take much notice of animated prices, but looking at the website gives a price of £7.69 per deluxe.

Think they had one Swindle and a few Samurai Prowls.

Ooh, Hoist and Mixmaster! Interesting to see what's in stock and prices in the UK. I always read on TFW2005 about the UK missing out on chunks of certain lines, but it seems they've been getting quite a bit of stuff that we've been missing out on.

Glad I can keep you guys informed - I'm not really into buying much myself these days, my money goes elsewhere...

They were selling the ROTF G1 Mixmasters by themselves in Malaysia, could have picked those up for about $25-30 NZD.

Packaging type? There are different versions for G1.5 and G2, and I collect and still need G1.5 versions (don't collect G2)
