    Really? On the shelves? This is early!
    Merged Post:
    I think this is only for online orders as I couldn't find any in store stock! I was about to get in the car and drive to the store as it's open while 11pm up to Xmas.

    Ordering before 5pm tomorrow would get them a day early... I'm waiting for on shelf stock.

    Well they were putting them on the shelves at the Smyths in Londonderry. They were just starting so all I got today was 6" Lion-O and Mumm-Ra. I was told to call back in a few hours and they would all be out but I could not wait. Going back tomorrow or Wednesday for the massive haul. :thumbsup:

    The toys have hit The Entertainer in Birmingham as well - I went there this morning before work and they had everything - I picked up the large scale Mumm-Ra and Lion-O. The small scale figures I ordered from the Entertainer website last week - and most are still in stock.:)
     
  6. Thundercats are indeed now in stock and wow it was like stepping back in time for me tonight as i walked into smyths and seen all the toys...its the first time ive been into a toy store in years and all i can say is the thundercats looked awesome displayed together. Picked up a large scale Lion-o at £12.99 as you can see..pricey toys nowadays back in the day figures were like £4 lol. Ill be back for more in the coming weeks. Enjoy folks

    Awful that the price sticker is right at the front. Are they all like that at smyths and did they have all the figures inc classics and delux?

    I won't be buying them if they have prices on them.

    Xmas has come early for me

    Ok, I've been to meadowhall at lunch after phoning the Entertainer and checking they had put stock out.... they had!

    The designated stock area was only small (the entertainer store in Meadowhall is very small). They'd mostly put out just one of everything but they did not have out the Thunder-racers, the Tower of omens and the claw shield.

    I bought the following.....

    Deluxe Mumm-ra
    Deluxe Grune
    Deluxe Lion-o
    Deluxe-Tygra

    4" Lion-o
    4" Tygra
    4" Cheetara
    4" Mummy Mumm-ra
    4" Wilykit
    4" Wilykat
    (already owned 4" Panthro)

    6" Mumm-ra
    6" Panthro
    6" Lion-o

    Classic Tygra
    Classic Lion-o

    Lizard Cannon
    Thundertank

    I'd have bought the Thunderracers if the store had them out but it was absoultely packed in the store, there were no baskets to carry things to the counter and there was a big queue (+ I only get 1hr for lunch and was pushed for time).

    The toys look so beautiful I don't want to take them out of the packet but I will and just buy again.

    Toys R Us are not selling early nor is my local smyths. The cashier at the entertainer said they'd been told to put them out on the shelves as a competitor was selling earlier than expected and they were instructed to get them out early by HQ.

    FYI - The entertainer didn't have any price stickers on.

    The full range is up on the Entertainer website (in-case this hasn't been posted before)

    LOVING the shots of the new toys... it feels like the 80's all over again! :)

    Going to venture out into Central London later to see what I can find... any recommendations?

    ok, here's an interesting insight. I phoned TRU yesterday and they told me the Thundercats would be out on the shelves today for purchase. I turned up at TRU to buy a couple of missing items (Entertainer didn't have in). Which was the 2 x Thunder-racers and the Tower of Omens.

    TRU didn't have anything out on the shelves. When I explained that the entertainer was selling and so were Smyths stores they'd told me they had got an email to delay until tomorrow.

    I was mega cheesed off as I'd taken up my lunch hour and a £4 tram journey to fetch the missing items.

    On my way out of the shop a sales assistant chased after me and said a manager had said it was ok to sell me the items :D . Although the staff at TRU were arguing amongst themselves that it wouldn't actually go through the cash registerl I was happy for them to try and they did go through the till and I'm now the proud owner of 2 x Thunderracers and 1 * ToO.

    See pic attached.

    In case anyone is in the area - this was TRU at Meadowhall retail park in Sheffield

    I'm going to Meadowhall monday :D Hopefully they have a Grune as I'd like to get him first.

    Oh and if anyone is interested, The Mirror newspaper today has a £5 off £20 spend at Smyths. Unfortunately there isn't a Smyths toy store near me :(

    If your planning to spend £20 or more on ThunderCats toys before Saturday 10th December might be worth picking up the paper tonight ;)

    Neil, I went to TRU at Meadowhall retail park yesterday and they did have some Grune's in. In fact I think they had everything in.

    The awesome thing was there was this kid there, about 5-6, and he was so excited about the Thundercats stuff, he was naming all the characters and telling his parents which ones he wanted, it was really nice to see and I can't even stand kids lol.

    I didn't pick anything up myself I just wanted to see them in hand. I'm not fussed about the new style stuff and I was going to get the Classics but think I'm going to wait for the 6" Classics now. But those 8" Classics are really big, I wasn't quite prepared for how big they actually were in hand.

    I did however get a sweet Thundercats t-shirt from Primark in Sheffield, it was £6. I will try and post a pic later.

    Edit:
    Here's the pic:

    Yeah I got Grune from The Entertainer at Meadowhall :) Where abouts is the Toys R Us? Is it accessible on foot from the main shopping centre? I've only been to Meadowhall twice in my life and I'm not really that familiar with it.

    Cool! :)

    I kinda expected them that size in hand and was prepared with what to expect. I know what you mean though! It was the 4" that took me by surprise :eek: I just didn't realise how small they would be in hand (especially Kit and Kat) until seeing them in person!

    Damn! I didn't go in Primark. Ah well, I might be going into Nottingham soon so will look then ;)
