Anyone seen any of these in any store in the UK yet? Argos promised me they would be available on 26 August but it never happened! Surely they must be here somewhere soon!

    Isn't the official release date today? Sept 1st. So I'd expect to see them cropping up in WHSmiths from now (unless they are still trying to shift the boxes of series 7 I still see everywhere. And occasional boxes of series 5 and 6...)

    They are in Brand Stores nationwide as from today and also Tesco and then they will go to other retailers from the 1st of Oct.

    There were 4 boxes worth (give or take a few bags) at the Tesco Extra at Milton Keynes (Kingston Centre) this morning. The barcode on the bags wasn't recognised at the register, so we had to get a supervisor to manually enter a code. The big Tesco Extra in Bedford didn't have had any (checked before driving to MK).

    Nothing yet at Surrey Quays Tesco.

    Should add, after grabbing some breakfast in Subway, we went back to get a couple more & they had all gone from the Tesco MK store, so I guess someone cleared them out.

    Could it be that in series 8, Lego has resumed adding spare parts? I had the Brezel guy today, with two feathers for his hat.

    Popped into Handforth Tesco - no s8 there, no CMF's at all. There was a Desert Skiff for £19 something, but whilst it spent some time in my trolley i left it in the end.

    S8 figures are available on Tesco Direct. Sadly you can only purchase up to 99 at a time!
    If you're signed up to Top Cashback you can get 3% cashback (I think) on an order, perhaps more if it's your first time.

    Do you mean October? Or September?

    It seems that for very small accessories (such as the feather) this is the case, though I wouldn't expect to get a spare pretzel any time soon.
