Not sure if it's been mentioned in the other thread but Galvatron showing up in Who could have a lot to do with Andrew Wildman having storyboarded all but one episode of series seven.

Maybe. But then again, he's had enough of Transformers since he started. Image

Loads of the single figures I've been wanting lately have been getting sold on my usual place TFSource only as part of sets (Blaster, BH Ratchet, TrailThingy and Stealth Megatron - in particular) so it looks like I might have to go back to Kapow. Heck, they're likely to be getting a huge chunk of money from me for Metroplex anyway, since I wouldn't be surprised if shipping that beast from the US would cost more than I'd save in the currency conversion.

I'm a bit irked at this whole idea of selling things only as wave sets. Sure, let people who want the whole wave save a bit of dosh, but I don't want to buy stuff I don't want just so I can get other stuff I'm not bothered about. :(

One thing I'm still not seeing anywhere for ordering is the BH Cyberverse Abominus set. Sinnertwin is in my TFSource stack, but they've none of the rest up, and I don't see them on Kapow either, yet we've seen video reviews of them, so I assume they're out. Anyone know where I can get my hands on the rest of the team?
assembling a Neo-G1/TF:TM cast. Please PM if you have (or know of) the following at a reasonable price: Classics or Henkei Astrotrain, Sunstreaker, Sideswipe, Blurr, or 3rd Party iGear Ratchet and Ironhide.
Also looking for Universe Repugnus and Overbite, Frostbite and Longhorn and any Webdiver toys.

Holy monkey, it's been a long time since I was here.

Well, I've seen Forbidden Planet (in Bristol at least) have the wave 3 FOC deluxes and the Soundwave/blaster voyagers in.
Of course at slightly extortionate prices...

Erm, I guess that's the only sighting I've got to talk about...
Got a Blitzwing from kapow this week and completed my FOC Bruticus with a Vortex too.
How are y'all?

Thanks to Electron, I got my Breacher today! :D
If Scouts/Commanders keep being this good for the next movie line, I might reconsider collecting.

Oh yes, scouts were the pinnacle of excellence around ROTF/HFTD, Breacher possibly being the zenith. I miss them, lovely little bundles of 7 quid perfection that they were. If you want to collect any movie toys, make it the scout class lot.
It's a shame that you can't get change out of a tenner for a sterlingly solid bot anymore. Commander class figures just do not compare, they're so much smaller and less involved.
I'd recommend the Skystalker mold if you don't have a version. I have Sunspot and he is a favourite of mine.
The Scattorshot mold is also good. I hear Firetrap might be the best version, but I can only speak of experience with Scattorshot himself and another repaint, Flak.

I own Brimstone, Backfire (meh), Breacher, Skystalker and Ejector. And except one, I love them all.

Hatchet and Guzzle are good, too, especially the Tiger/Jet. He's a teeny meany leany killing machine-y. :D

I thought Flak was the tiny tiny Legion/Legends class AMV?

HFTD Flak is a repaint of ROTF Scattorshot from the sainsbury's exclusive Ravage infiltration set.

Wasp! I was wondering where you'd got to mate. I've been good, if a little slow on the collecting front, due more than anything to my lack of motivation to actually bother to go to any shops :lol:

Not bad, had loads of uni work to do over the past few months...
And probably spent quite a bit of money. I've got all but 1 of the FOC deluxes now... Most Prime figures... A small horde of bot shots...
And a good few more Iron Men... You'll see it all on me youtubez.
Including a massive G1 haul that blew my mind. I got a MIB '84 Optimus and a MIB Jetfire amongst others...

Just thought, did anyone post on here about the £12.99 PRID voyagers in TK Maxx? I bagged me a Starscream a couple of weeks ago.

I had not seen that repaint, thanks!

As for TKMaxx, nothing over here in Norwich, but TRU is swamped by Ultra Magnus boxes.
All for £14.99 each, as are Thundertron, OP, Megs and Starscream. Only saw one Dreadwing.

No want Dreadwing! Want Skyquake, Hasbro, give me Skyquake!

oh, and Va'al, Breacher looks great. I've been really resisting catching up on the non-movie Movie toys, but some look great, and my love for the PCCs and HA Basics means I'll probably dig them a lot. Breacher looks like he might be a decent Roller stand-in/replacement/upgrade. Also tempted by some of them Scout motorbikes and the Deluxe movie-Lockdown. I have Axor and he's great.

It's getting active here again, we're seeing a few of the old(er) faces and there's some conversation going on rather than just sightings. I like this. I like this very muchly yes.

Trying to think about the different characters in that team now.. :-?

Banzai-Tron would hack enemies to pieces, once Mindwipe has stunned them with his 'powers'. Sell everything to Lockdown, who is helped by an unsure, but loyal (and GLORIOUS), Lugnut. Skystalker just prances about, poking things.

Skystalker would just stick to mindwipe and not be able to pull his own weight, I think.
I mean you can make about a thousand different combinations with them-adding an extra set of wings to mindwipe or just fleshing out his back somewhat.

True.

What about Powerdive, though?


And in other news, who's doing AA this year?
