Update! My TRU contact has now corrected himself, its masterpiece Soundwave that should be in stores mid august according to him. He got his 'waves' mixed up apparently!

Hey guys, just thought I'd pop in for a quick chinwag about my latest encounters.
Constructbots Elites are reduced to £11.24 in argos, if you're interested. And why wouldnt you be? THEY ROCK SO HARD.
I've only got Soundwave, but man put me down for the rest...

He even has MINI-CON POINTS.

Smyths have BH bots at 25% off, I nabbed a Lazerback for £9.50. Nice.
Apparently Sainsburys have a similar sale, but mine has had the same DOTM legion Mudflap and Prime Cyberverse commanders in it for the past 3 months.

There you have it.

Oh and while I'm here, I might as well plug a bit of fiction I've been (slowly) writing.
It's here http://www.seibertron.com/energonpub/scattered-a-story-in-pieces-t96165.php
I originally had it on FMH, but I figured if I chucked it on Seibertron, it might get put into next's week's creative roundup, and I'd be well chuffed.

Tried Toys R Us at Lakeside last week, they have no deluxe generations at all! had a handful of Soundwaves and 1 Grimlock, but do have MP10 still.

Any one else noticed a glut of Overlords on ebay the last week?

Anywho, Saw a comic shop in Brighton the other day had the triple changers constructibots in. Not a fan myself as the transformation is pretty much the same for each toy unless its leader or triple changer.

Still to each their own.

Keeping an eye out for Metroplex, waiting for a notice from HLJ about MP Prowl and Streak.

Any one going Roll Call Roll Out?

Morning All!

I can confirm my local ASDA (Old Roan/ Aintree) also has Wave 3 of Beast Hunters Deluxe!

Bagged myself a SkyStalker. Looks really nice next to Skylynx, there's a real noticeable weight difference between the 2 of them, but I really like that mold, it's got a lot of neat little engineering things in it that make it a bit more than the 'stand up, flip out head' deal that it looks like, you can put quite a few transformation variances between the two to make them stand out from one another more.

To get back on topic:
They also had Constructbots Starscream and Ironhide basics, Wheeljack and Soundwave elites.

And Kre-o Microchangers wave 2.
I bagged six last night,
Acid Wing, Blight, Lugnut, Powerglide, Bulkhead and Groove.

Some nice nourishment for my thoroughly understated kreon collection.

EDIT:
Does anyone know where I can still scoop up a complete set of wave 1 (series one, not the preview wave), or at least a supply of the blind bags?

Wave 2 are available on tesco direct for £1 each, but are currently out of stock. I set up a stock alert, and will post back when they're back in stock.

Nice on the Wave 3 :) I have seen them a few times here and there (and of course picked them all up first time I saw them!)

I managed to bag a complete set of Wave 2 Kreons at my local Morrisons. I also picked up all of Wave 1 there. I have been slowly trying to make a second set of each so I can display as bots and Alts. I have a few spare Wave 1's and my Morrisons still has a nearly full case if you want a hand getting them I'd be happy to help out. I have spares (in their unopened plastic baggies) of Warpath, Singe, Blast Off,Rampage and Quick Slinger (Slingshot).

Yeah, I'd be really happy with that! PM me with pricings? I should get paid on the 7th

You got a multi region blu ray player then? It's US only. But I don't know the blu ray regions like the DVD ones.

Nope, its amazing what you can find on Amazon Germany:

http://www.amazon.de/Transformers-Prime ... mers+prime

European region with German and English dub it would seem.

That also where I got Armarda from for €10 ish for the whole 52 episodes.

Be careful, as there are many DVD releases sold from Germany claiming to have English audio, but actually don't. The biggest offender that come to mind are the releases of thevarious Power Rangers series.

Hey, can anyone recommend or un-recommend (that's totally a word) the Grimwing mold? Because I've suddenly realised I rather like the look of Darksteel's robot mode and may have to pick one up if I see it at a nice price, I just want to make sure that it is, in fact, worth the cash.

I was a bit unsatisfied with my Darksteel when He didn't peg together in the chest. It all just kind of hangs there pretty loosely, even when I used a bit of clear nail varnish to thicken up some of his pegs.

However, I since realised that when you peg his weapon into his back, with it's head facing down, it gives him really awesome back spikes sticking up behind his head, and his missile fits into his hand as a pretty convincing Axe if you remove the string attaching it to the launcher. That made him look awesome enough that I stopped caring about how loose he was.

Whether you take these words as a recommendation or a warning is up to you though.

As far as I know, everyone loves it. Definitely worth 20 quid by all accounts.
I haven't got it yet though.

I may well start looking for one then, I just really love the colour scheme of darksteel, that deep blue looks so good.

Also, picked up a kre-o jazz for 2.99 in an oxfam today, sealed, and had far more fun with it than I intended to-built it into a pretty decent car mode, not tired robot mode yet. Desperately hoping it doesn't end up selling me on the kre-o line, my poor wallet would start bleeding...

Grimwing is slightly mis-transformed out of the box. Did you open his alt head mouth as it slides over the chest bit to hold in place. Mines fine, think you've not transformed him right.

So, yeah, if anybody is still looking for cheap Vehicons I'm afraid you won't have much luck in Stockton town centre.

Image

Takes me up to 18 deluxe Vehicons in total I think, plus 12 legion and 4 of the troop builder Kreon packs. Total spend for the day came in at just under £100 including the Tower of Omens and the 4 mythological bootlegs.

Why? Because despite Bandai's rush to fall out of love with Thundercats I'm really partial to the redesigned stuff. Oh, the Vehicons? Because he with the most Steves wins at Transformers.

Name each of them, or naming Vehicons "Steve" has no point.
I'm gonna say the one with his head back on the right is Lenny.

Where does "Steve" come from anyhoo?
Why don't people use a more imaginative name like... Reg.
Or Santiago.
Or Sir Christie Pontefract Higginbotham.
Or Dave.
