UK Beast Morphers / Lightning / Playskool Toy Discussion



Welcome to the 2019/2020 UK Toy Discussion!

It's time for a new toy line for a new season... And a new franchise & toy owner too!
The official release date for the toys was slated for 1st July 2019, but items did arrive a couple of weeks early online and in stores at Smyths and A1 Toys. Other retailers will follow suit very quickly!

What to expect from this thread? As with previous years, this thread can be used for many reasons!
  • Keeping an archive of items released in the UK
  • Speculation and discussion of upcoming products
  • Sharing sightings of new items
  • Discussion of links to order online
  • Concerns with what we may not get and planning ahead with importing



Current online store links

Right now, there are several places that are offering pre-orders. Some may be more of a case of importing straight from the US rather than through Hasbro and official UK distributors however, so please don't consider any of those as confirmations of what are official, wide-spread UK releases, although it is very likely.
Please keep in mind that your mileage may vary when it comes to stock availability, release dates, any problems etc with those sources.

At the moment, these are those UK-based sites with pre-orders:

Forbidden Planet
Toku Toy Store
In Demand Toys
Kapow Toys
Star Action Figures
Comics & Cocktails

As of this post edit (28th May), there is currently only one "official" retailer with listings ready, which is Smyths, albeit with no pre-orders. You can find their current listings at the link below.
Smyths Toys

If you're aware of any more, feel free to post them and I'll add them to the list.

It's finally time for some news.

The UK section of the official PR site is now open. Toy-wise, it currently features a small selection (nothing pre-orderable) but it does confirm that the toys will go on sale on shop shelves from the 1st of July.

I'll update the first post of the thread shortly.

I really wasn't expecting these until July or even August so getting confirmation they had been dispatched was really cool & exciting. Just hope they don't take too long to arrive

Ordered mine from Star Action Figures, first time I've ever ordered from them.

Order arrived today, exteremly well packed.

The figures themselves are fantastic, my only complaint (and I wouldn't even call it a complaint) is my Lord Zeds leg joints are a little looser than I would have liked, making some poses a little more a awkward

Smyths continue to add more items.
There's not very long to go now. Just a little bit over three weeks!

Edit - I've just given the first post of the thread an update, putting together all of the confirmed UK releases so far.
As I mention in it; I'm just listing what's been confirmed as coming directly from Hasbro UK to UK retailers, so even though other things have been popping up, like the other Lightning Collection figures, some are those are imports, so I'll wait to add them until they are listed/found via an official UK retailer with stock directly from Hasbro.

I got my lightning collection! I like them for the most part, the legs are a bit loose, the feet are a bit stiff, so getting them in a stance is the most challenging part.

My white ranger (the one I wanted most) has a loose torso so it falls forwards and backwards like a rattle. I am asking Hasbro if it can be exchanged as I know the store doesn't exchange for 'functional issues'...

All in all though, it's like a completely different experience to what we've had for the last few years. The civilian heads make it. The special effects pieces which I wasn't expecting to be wowed by, are actually rather enjoyable!

Cool pick

I've been rather fortunate and it appears only my Lord Zed has looser hip joints than I'd like but it's not as bad as some figures I have (I'm looking at you Legacy Yellow Ranger)

Beast Morphers and Playskool toys are now beginning to appear on store shelves in Smyths, slightly earlier than the 1st July date announced previously.

As usual, there are some slight differences with the packaging compared to the US.
