well, I finally got the invoice for the customs charges for my Crossfire United Burritocus. £7 tax and £14 "clearance" charges. Meh, fair enough. What's grinding my gears is that it's at a depot in a different city, so I can't just go pick it up easily, and the letter says next day delivery if I pay online, but the website says Tuesday, which isn't the next day. Monday is the next day! So much for paying EMS shipping to get it here quickly.
:( Trying to sort out a lift there tomorrow to pick up, but have to phone in advance apparently, so it'll be an early morning for me.

Liking the look of the TF Go! combiner dudes, but maybe too pricey for me. Hoping in vain for a Hasbro release (they couldn't be hooped to do Breakdown, so it doesn't seem very likely they'll do new Japanified characters).

Oh, and considering which Metroplex to ask for for my Birthday. Metroplex for my birthday, yes...it is the 80s again!

I just had a quick visit to London and went to Forbidden Planet. I don't normally get stuff from there as they either have nothing I want or it's just silly prices. However today they had the entire Wave 3 FoC deluxes (Magnus, Kickback, Sideswipe, Starscream and Air Raid) as well as Voyager Soundwave and Soundblaster. They also had Prime and Jazz, but I already have them...

The deluxes were £17.99 and the Voyagers were £29.99. I picked up Soundwave as I have wanted him for ages (and I already have all the tapes) but couldn't really justify picking them all up (I really would have, but my wife might have been a tad "upset".)

I was happily putting in tapes (I know they are Discs but I'm going to call them tapes anyway, because I am old skool innit) and edjecting them across the room when my wife called to get me to pick her up... Damnit I was having fun woman! Why cant a 35 year old bloke sit in a room on his own and giggle gleefully when a small plastic Robot Bat flies across the room?!? [-(

Made the long cycle ride over to Toys R Us in Bedford this afternoon to find not one, not two but three seperate displays for Transformers!

As reported TRU are still trying to get rid of DotM figures, Voyagers and Deluxe etc.

Of interest where TF Prime Voyager Skyquake and Dreadwing plus all the other TF Prime Voyagers. :D
All the TF Prime Deluxe figures where on show minus Airachnid with the highlight being not one, not two but three VEHICON deluxe figures!!!
This is the first time I have even seen a TFP Vehicon Deluxe hanging off a peg in a shop! :shock:

The usual Weaponizers and those weird Cyberverse Battle Suit thingys clogging up a couple of shelves, but MP Optimus Prime still looking sweet in amongst everything! :D

I remember getting Metroplex, Ultra Magnus and Scorponok all within a very short timespan. Too young to remember but maybe my folks came into some money at the time or something? I didn't get a proper Optimus Prime until the gold-boxed Classic Heroes though and that was one that'd been broken, returned to the shop and sold as such for only a few quid. Hot Rod was the one I waited til my 20s to get.

Lots of Kreon goodness today courtesy of me old mucker Sven Harvey, full set of the series 1 Microchangers and a second set of the wave 1 combiners.

Image

With my other Kreons.

Image

I've left the 'vest' pieces off wherever I could get away with it, I hope to see less use of those and more of the plates that just cover the back rather than the printed detail on the front of the torsos as the line progresses.

Nice Kreons Waaaaagh (Ork player?) I wish I could make some more shelf space to display mine better. I also like the idea of having a couple of sets of the combiners, I'm aiming to have 2 of all of the Micro Changers line but am somewhat foolishly determined to blind bag them for my second set (usually getting the Mrs to pick random ones from the display box in Morrisons) which has thus far led to a surplus of Warpaths! (I know I could just look at the codes, or purposefully buy them from a reseller.. but, you know, it just isn't the same!)

I really should post some pics of my collections. It's tough finding people who actually appreciate them. I may have to dust first...

Thanks.
Oddimus Prime wrote:(Ork player?)

Kind of, not so much a player as a painter these days. I've been slow burning some Bad Moons for the last couple of years. I started using waaaaghlord as a screen name about 10 years back on the old Epic forums and it's followed me around since. Funny moment at AA last year when Siegfried called me wag-lord and I had to Waaaagh! at him. Almost as big a faux par as pronouncing 'Seibertron' 'Cybertron'.
Oddimus Prime wrote:I wish I could make some more shelf space to display mine better.

I'm in desperate need of more shelves! Over half my stuff is boxed up at the moment. That crate has just been emptied of my modern Thundercats stuff to make room for the Kreons. The guy who owns my house is in the process of selling so I'm holding off adding any more display space until it's sold and I know I'll be staying on as a tenant with the new owner.
Oddimus Prime wrote:I also like the idea of having a couple of sets of the combiners.

I said I'd be doing that as soon as I saw pictures of the sets. In an ideal world every combiner would be displayed this way, an overly expensive option most of the time but cheap enough to indulge in with these little guys. I'll probably do the same with the legion Terrorcons when they hit.

If it's a method that works for you then all is good. If you end up with any unneeded Insecticons or when series 2 hits Vehicons, Scourge/Sweeps or Bombshells feel free to give me a shout, I have a weakness for troop builders. I blame the wargaming years.

Always good to see collection pics. I've been threatening to do a thread for years and still haven't put in the time.

Best bit with those is that with the Lego/Sun/WHSmiths/TRU promotion they only cost me £10. I just wish mean lady in the shop had let me have more than 20. Some bloke in Cambridge managed to grab 300 and shunt them straight to ebay.
Oh, and they came with a ballista each but I only built those 2 and all the ammo. The equipment racks and ammo hoppers were built from the ballista parts and other spare pieces I racked up across the week.
