Knockout arrived today, and I actually really like the little guy, once the transformation is done correctly!

Still needs some paint, though. Shoulder spikes, wheels and maybe the inside of his hood, and shins. Ratchet is on his way too, but he's getting the Reprolabel treatment.

I've said it somewhere else, too: I think there's too much covering going on with the stickers, and I'm not sure about spending more money on him. I already have the paints, just not with me, and I've started doing what I could with Sharpies.

Still a work in progress:

Spotted (and bought) these two little beauties at my local Tesco yesterday afternoon.

Transformers Prime deluxe Arcee and Ratchet for few nice price of £ 9.97 each!

They where the only two on the shelf apart from several Bumblebee, a Cliffjumper and a Wheeljack.

Looking forward to the new Argos catalogue which is out next weekend for more Prime and hopefully FoC goodies? Heres hoping!! ;)

Still nothing in East Anglia, but Ratchet arrived today from Buyforless.
I like him! So far he's ranking well with Soundwave, in the PRiD line.

Reprolabels should be arriving soon for him, too.

This is because there is only 1 of each to a wave 2 case. So out of 16 available slots across wave 1 and 2, 14 of them are the wave 1 figures (that have now been out for 6 months) with Bumblebee most heavily overpacked. Add to this the tendency for companies to over order on early waves and the reasons for our difficulties in finding non yellow TFs become clear.

In light of Hasbros ridiculous decision not to release Breakdown in the west, I've pulled the trigger and ordered the AM version today off eBay.

I'm not a fan of these Micron's either. Any 3rd parties making a more show accurate hammer?

Glad you got Ratchet, Va'al, he's pretty good, eh?

I too appear to be having to order Breakdown off of ebay. He's vanished from Kapow, when I would have ordered him last week if not for their "no pre-orders and in-stock items in the same order" rule. Still there's a few sellers with the Bulkhead and Breakdown AM figures in a set, so I should be able to pick those guys up together and save on postage after all.
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.

He is! My one complaint is the face: too grumpy. :P

I did see one really good deal actually, turned out to almost £35 per figure once the order was made. Was still on eBay last time I checked.

there's a seller on ebay offering the whole AM line so far for what I worked out as about £23each after shipping. That's including the Voyagers. If I had the cash, I'd have it, and toss the few I don't want on here or ebay. But I don't have the cash. :P

Oh, thanks! ^_^ My first news credit! *squeee* If you'd like some extra info;

Sighted at TRU Exeter, Devon.
There were only two Bumblebees - No Primes at all.
The shelf-tag said £34.99. This is pretty high for the size and complexity of the figure, if I may say so.

woo. scored a Classics Hot Rod. Can swap him into my Protector armour and have Challenge At Cybertron Hot Rod with...umm...the original version of the guy who got rereleased as Blesser. FP Firebolt, anyway.

Also got me a KO Magnus and City Commander set. Yes, KO, but at a 3rd of the price of getting a legit Magnus and City Commander armour. The armour is at least easy to get, but the Magnus...keeps going for too much for me for what's basically a skeleton for the armour. It'll at least let me weigh up my options on what it looks like, and if I do really like the idea of it, but maybe feel the quality is a bit poo, or the inner robot/cab is pants, I can hunt down the expensive ones later.

Got last minute sniped on the Blurr I was going to get though. Still, with GDO Wheelie and Springer, and FOC Magnus if City Commander doesn't do it for me, and Motobot or the 3rd party Arcee I'm currently winning on ebay...my S3 Autobots might be a damn sight closer to completion. Just still need to find the funds for Giant and possibly Hegemon. And something else, and something else after that. IT NEVER ENDS! ;)

Been out today, Sainsburys had nothing new, just wave 1's, my Tesco did however have Ratchet and Arcee, however I already have both figures so didn't buy them.

Went to Toys r us and they had both the Optimus prime and Bumblebee weaponizers, they didn't have a place on the shelf but there was a box unopened with 2 bee's and 1 Optimus on the floor, Wasn't interested in them so didn't get them, but the Prime did look cooler in the box in hand though.

Getting sick of hunting, it's always the same stuff. I just want a Vehicon! :P

Not to burst your bubble, but the UK is actually yonks ahead on distribution, compared to the rest of Europe.
Still, I wish you best of luck, and that the plastic may replace the philigrane.

Went into Liverpool today, their Forbidden planet was bare from anything new. But I went into their World's Apart shop, which is similar to Forbidden Planet and they had 2 Prime Hot Shots! Which means recently they'd of had the Vehicon and Knockout as well, they were just sold out of those :/

But I bought a Hot Shot any ways simply because I was determined to buy something, and I agree with what people have said about the little guy, the mold seems to work better as Hot shot rather then Bumblebee, even though I quite liked Bumblebee, the paint and colours are just full of Jammy goodness!
