Asda are stocking cases of red, blue, yellow, blaze and tronic.

Argos and Smyths seem to have Gold as an individual figure

Amazon have the cruise and smash beast bots (expensive though...)

No word yet on who's getting the silver ranger, or jax, roxy, the new red fury, drill monster or evox figures either. Keep an eye out!

Entertainer have cruise & smash bots as available on their website. Talking of Entertainer my local store had a very small, disappointing, display (just a small side cap end) with just the basic figures, electronic Zord, Morpher & 12" figures. Although they did have x2 items I hadn't seen before being the Beast blaster & a single Tronic figure which I quickly grabbed. This is the first time I've seen this figure at retail & was honestly concerned that it was never going to be released over here given it was never part of Smyths first or second wave of toys, nor is it listed on their websites (although A1 are now showing the figure).

Is it just me or has it become increasingly harder in the past 12 months or so to buy 'childrens' toys. A large number of items from Bandais final waves of PR toys never saw release in the UK. And the same has gone for Hasbro, retailers have refused to buy Star Wars toys for the past 18 months. Endgame only saw a handful of basic figures released over here (and we never got past the first wave of Infinity War figures). While Far From Home has been limited to the Disney Store (and even then it's been high street only with a complete no show on their website). Has anyone else found that it is becoming increasingly difficult to buy toys within the UK?

We're been entering the next recession for the last two years, all levels of the supply chain for lots of things get impacted in tiny little ways which lead to odd cumulative economic changes. The trouble affecting the back office affects the high street, which compounds the problem of people not using the high street for certain classes of items.

B&N have these wird BM figure
They appear to be similar to the weird basic Marvel figures which have been out for a few years, however, these are bigger than 5". Coming in closer to 9/10 inch

Might be nice for people who like to custom paint.

My local Entertainer now have the x2 Beast Bots in, looking at them on the shelves they seem a little over priced for 15 but in honesty what isn't these days. Still they look a 1000x better than those plastic statues of a deluxe figures Bandai did with the red & Blue NS figures (slightly cheaper too).

Below is the window display they had set up

I only just noticed they're still called "Saban's Power Rangers"

I'd love to know why. Wonder if its something to do with licensing the franchise from Saban before they bought it outright or if its something that will be on PR merchandise going forward.

I'd imagine Saban wanted his name on the franchise he created, but there could be other contractual stuff. It was probably discussed somewhere here.

That's what I was thinking.

On a different note has anyone heard if/when we'll be getting either the micro mini or Playskool blind bags
