New January 2009 Argos Catalogue – Confirmed Transformers for Sale

Written by Big Bot on January 18, 2009 | News,Toys | Tags: , ,

The bi-annual event of the new Argos catalogue occured yesterday and its now time to analyse the 1802 pages to see what Transformers offerings are inside. Animated Bumper Battlers are shown twice, and Animated Deluxes seem to have a price increase, but Leader Megatron has £10 off.

Transformers: Animated Bumper Battler. Cat no 387/7405 – £9.79 or 2 for £15 (Nightwatch Optimus Prime pictured)

Page 1668
Marvel Transformers Crossovers. Cat no 387/7498 – £14.69 (Spider-Man & Wolverine pictured)

Page 1674
Transformers: Universe
25th Anniversary Deluxe. Cat no 369/7795 – £12.69 (Starscream pictured)
Legends 5 Pack. Cat no 387/7931 – £14.69
25th Anniversary Voyager. Cat no 369/8048 – £19.59 (Inferno Pictured)
25th Anniversary Ultra. Cat no 081/5099 – £24.49 (Silverbolt Pictured) Extra Stores Only

Transformers: Animated
Animated Activators. Cat no 387/6530 – £6.79 (Patrol Bumblebee & Grimlock Pictured)
Animated Bumper Battlers. Cat no 387/7405 – £9.79 (Nightwatch Optimus Prime Pictured)
Animated Deluxe. Cat no 369/7647 – £12.69 (Blurr Pictured)
Animated Leader Megatron. Cat no 369/7692 – £29.39 (Megatron Pictured)

Ironically, on page 1674, it mentions that 2009 is the 25th Anniversary of Transformers. This makes no sense as Hasbro UK (wrongly) said that 2005 was the UK’s 20th Anniversary!
