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.

A week in the life of a minifigure collector.

Image

That full week's Lego grabs including two lovely piles of parts for future builds. The stretched version of the construction vehicle is more or less a mash up of two of those sets with the police boat, I think I had to grab the hinge for the hopper from the Uruk set.

Home Bargains had Voyagers for less than £11 (only the first Ultra Magnus in mine) and Deluxes for (I think) £5.99 - Knock Out and Hot Shot sitting warming those shelves at my local.

Damn it, the KO/Hotshot case should have a Vehicon in it and between work commitments, staying with an old friend next weekend and being incredibly tight on rent after forking out for the utilities it's going to be a couple of weeks before I can hit up any Home Bargains. On the plus side I've got a flight plan around Teeside that hits up to 5 stores including a few out of the way ones so might still turn something up.

Spoke to mother bear and she's going to have a hunt around Ripon and York branches this week. Told her to look for Vehicons and she said 'yes but what's the name?'. Took an effort not to say Steve.

Grrr I don't have a Home Bargains anywhere near me :sad:

I think I'm going to take some collection shots later so watch this space...

No spares of anything useful on the Kreons front Waaaagh, but I'll let you know if I get anything. I too am sucker for army building, but I am attempting to restrain currently (I stopped at 6 PRiD Vehicons, and I think 9 or 10 Cyberverse.) But I know what you mean, it's in a Wargamers instinct to hoard troop models! Loving the Uruk Hai, wish I had gotten off my lazy bum and got some of those when I had the chance!

In shopping news for this week, I have done my usual circuit of stores (Bluewater shopping Center - Nothing of note to report. Toys R us Chatham - nothing of interest, I even popped into Wilkinsons and the y only had a few Prime deluxes at full price.)

I'm off to Toys R Us again later as it will be the last chance I have to spend my £10 voucher before it runs out of date so I'll let you know if any miracles occur!

I only have a Vehicon and a Jet Vehicon, one bought in Norwich, one in Italy.
The obvious names are Steve and Mario.
The Cyberverse ones are Kenny and Roger- two people.

I've got one Vehicon. He's plenty enough awesome. I wouldn't mind a Jet Vehicon at some point but not after it enough to pay full import price on it.

It's a nice addition, I agree. Kenny and Roger were bought as I was hunting for Steve and got frustrated about not finding him.

Because you can do this, and it makes it all better:

wow, Swerve was right. "put two decepticons alone in a room and within minutes they'll be standing on each other's shoulders trying to combine"

I'm jealous. My Vehicons seem to have formed a slightly camp Dance Troupe

Thanks to the kindness of mother bear I'm better off to the tune of a PRiD Vehicon and Kreo Jazz (mainly for the Kreon of course). I also splashed out a whole £2 for CV Fallback/Outback since that was the last of the repaint wave I needed, shelf tag said £2.99 but it went through the till cheaper. In total we went around 3 Home Bargains and 1 B&M. Stock was a bit mixed between the HB branches, one had PRiD deluxes and voyagers (same case assortments already reported), another just voyagers and the last one no PRiD but a handful of DotM leaders at £24.99 and Kreo Jazz at £3.99. B&M had the usual DotM leftovers, Botshots and Kreo they've had for a while although they seem to be sold out of the Ark now. They are also starting to get some Prime as well. Voyagers (Op, Bulkhead, Dreadwing) at £12.99, legion (repaint wave) at £2.99, Op battlesuit at £24.99 and 'Bee battlesuit at £14.99. No sign of any PRiD deluxe or the CV vehicles I was hoping they'd get in.

Oh, and since I've got plenty of leftover parts from the combiner sets I've given my Jazz and Mirage Kreons some wheels on their legs.

Bugger, just realised there is an entire thread about that. Sigh, that's what I get for working for 34 hours over the weekend then sleeping all day Monday.

Back to bed for me.

On another note, any one ordered the European region encoded Blu-ray of Transformers Prime from Amazon Germany? It has both English and German audio, was just wondering if any one had it yet and if its any good.

Pity we wont be getting it in the UK, but its a decent alternative don't you think.

Is that the whole 1st season? How much did that set you back?

Just won the 3rd E(vil)bay auction of the weekend, which means I now have Armada Prime, Armada Jetfire and Energon Ultra Magnus to look forward to being delviered over the next week, and all for the total of £61!

I'd sell you mine, but I don't wanna. Seriously, Omega Prime is bloody fantastic, and that Magnus on his own is awesome in plastic form. Hope you get one soon because you'll love it!

ThunderThruster: that's a nice haul. Especially for the price, as that Energon Magnus usually goes for quite a bit. I have the Powerlinx repaints of Prime and Jeftire, and the whole thing combined with Magnus is one of the sweetest looking bricks ever. You can stick about a thousand Minicons on them as well to really amp up the armaments. If you don't already have them get the Emergency Team, the police car is a decent rifle, the chopper becomes a dual gatling gun and the fire truck is an awesome missile pod thing!
