Motto: ""A beast form is the right of all sentient beings.""
Weapon: Battle Blades
Just arrived today;

MP-12 Sideswipe: gotta say, LOVE HIM! With all the QC issues I was worried, but apart from the doors being a little too dark, he is great. Don't know why people keep saying he is too small, the scale with MP-10 is perfect.

Dreadwing: what a piece of crap :-( Robot mode is ok, but jet mode is terrible...

Thundertron: always been a massive Beast Wars fan, so was looking forward to this guy and he is even worse that Dreadwing :-(

PRiD is steadily becoming a major letdown...

I just picked up FoC Onslaught, Swindle, Brawl and Blastoff. There was no Vortex to be found. So close, and yet....

But they are pretty nice figures.

Also, last night I placed my first ever BBTS order for the Dark Energon Starscream.

Motto: "...and hell followed with him."
Weapon: Twin Photon Blasters
Just got back from my local TRU, and when I went in, my jaw dropped. They had everything. An entire aisle devoted to nothing but Transformers. MPs, PRiDs, FEs, GDO, and I found a set of FoC Combaticons. I bought Swindle only, thus probably pissing off another Transfan who wanted the whole set, but i don't care because I think Bruticus is hideous and the Combaticons individually look dumb, save for Swindle and possibly Vortex, but I don't like the robot mode on him so I passed. My TRU still has RoTF stuff!

Popped in B & M Home Store yesterday, such a treat! Really was!! :D

They had loads of Dark of the Moon bits and bobs and a fair few Roadbots too which I have listed in the United Kingdom Toy Sightings thread.

I picked up DOTM Voyager Skyhammer (my second one, keeping one MISB!), a DOTM Cannon Force Ironhide (the one with a G1 red style deco) and a DOTM Human Alliance Tailpipe & Pinpointer!

All very nice too, and cheap as B & M had a 'friends & family' 10% discount to top it off!

I got a FE Vehicon yesterday, and I'm not too sure how I feel about it. I think the PRID one is superior. FE's nice, but I guess FE hype made me think it would be mind blowing.

I think most people will agree that PRiD Vehicon is the best deluxe of the entire line. Never mind the best Vehicon toy.

Just bought FOC Jazz. In hand, it isn't quite as bad as some say it is. The promo pics seriously exaggerated the ape-like proportions. While his head does seem to float over his empty torso, a bit of adjusting will lessen the effect, bringing his "collar" closer to his head.

Was planning to get the "pimped out" Takara version, but decided the missing paint apps on this one is a perfect opportunity to try my hand at customizing. Plenty of panel lines and a removable front grill "engine" just waiting to be painted.

Popped into Northampton town centre yesterday afternoon. Bit chilly strolling about but found a few bits including this...

Transformers Dark of the Moon Mechtech Roadbuster

He was a 'bargain' from Home Bargains for only £5.99! Cant argue for that sort of money! ;)

I got GDO Megatron and Brawl last night. I really like the ROTF Bludgeon mold, and I like this version of Megatron, but, as so many people have already said, this mold is not Megatron. I appreciate it in that Universe-love kind of way, but if the intention was either to reference G2 or Armada Megatron as they were tanks, the similarities stop with this one being a tank. It's not a very Megatron figure, but still, I'm good with it.

Brawl, meh. I guess I don't see what's so great about this mold. It's crazy posable, but the transformation is lamely awkward to me, and it's not that impressive looking a robot. Sure there are worse figures, and I don't hate him, but he's kind of just....alright.

I love the mold too, so much that a paid $80 shipped for Botcon Gigatron and $30 for the Headrobots upgrade.
