Happy New Year UK sighting contributors!

I had to pop an order in with Amazon U.K. for MP Prime, just had to!

If this comes off then I will have managed to secure the last three Masterpieces for less than £100 in total (with a few hardships along the way, but y'all know about that)! :D


I would get that mp, but i have the battled damaged MP1 who i love to bits so i dont need or want another.

Seeing as ive been away for quite a while, what important news have i missed?

I am now officially, sorta, kinda, onboard with the new downscaled Masterpiece line (dont have a comic book/series clip to hand, but does Sideswipe only come up to the Seekers abs/boobs?)
so I am looking forward to the new V2 Optimus.
MP1 Optimus will be taken out of storage and transformed into vehicle mode for display rather than getting rid of him as most folk may do? ;)

I am even considering picking up a couple of the PCC boxsets just for the Commanders, maybe Double Clutch, Bombshock and Crankcase (unless I can get them on their own without drones) but would also like Huffer, Windburn, Undertow and Heavytread! :lol:

I can sell you Double Clutch for a minimal price, with no drones.
If you ask me at a good time, might even give him to you for free.

I really dislike the figure, flops all over the place. And I only want PCC cons, anyway. [-(

Upsy daisy! :lol:

Noooo, I meant in the comic or G1 series as I have MP Sideswipe and MP 'Seekers' , my point being the MP Seekers have stayed the same height despite being released across different years, whilst MP Prime has been reduced in height and then MP Sideswipe has turned out Alternator sized? :???:

Ohhhh, teach me not to pay attention. I was glad to have a reason to test an FTP app on the ipad. Suffice it to say, it works!

Couldn't get my emoticons to work, but the Australia comment was due to the downsideup picture! :lol:

Currently in the Netherlands, will report on Norwich sightings on Saturday.

Robotmel: Double Clutch is ridiculously bad. Nothing sticks together if not in car mode.

I had 3 sets, and a few commanders. They had extremely loose joints and combined looked really bad. Maybe im just being an old fart lol.

I did like a lot of the commanders i got but i just cant them to fit into my display no matter how i try, so my ocd's just wont let me display them.

any news on timescales for the generations releases?

Also any of you guys still playing FoC?

Not at all. If you were offering to share your Nexus Maximus however that would be quite worrying.

Thought id 'Blast Off' into Reading today for some Christmas money spendature, and after having to 'Brawl' my way to Toys R Us, I stared into the 'Vortex' of Transformerage and managed to 'Swindle' myself into getting FOC Bruticus. I have now prepared myself for the 'Onslaught' of negativity regarding his retail colours that is sure to come. I also got PRID Dead End and Bin Man Bumblebee, making Vehicon the only PRID deluxe I have yet to purchase. Also, still no Shockwaves in site. Grrrrrr...
Transformers Energon is everyone's guilty pleasure. Go on. Admit it.
