Just gonna order TF Prime on blu ray as we speak.


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.

One of them can be Carmichael

Why don't people use a more imaginative name like... Reg.

I think to be politically correct you should have a disabled Steve, who can't quite transform properly or spell his name.

Im sure sTeV will become an instant fan favourite.

And sTeV likes jAaM.

I definitely transformed my darksteel properly, with beast mode head mouth open for robot mode. I'm wondering if the damaged box I mentioned in an earlierpost just messed mine up a little. I've noticed his paint is ridiculously fragile, and he started to suffer paint wear after just 5 minutes of having him in hand. Again, probably due to whatever high temperatures he was exposed to at the tesco direct warehouse that melted/warped plastic in his packing bubble. At least i got an £8 partial refund when I complained.

Wouldn't want this to put people off ordering from tesco direct though, I ordered skylynx from them since and he arrived in pristine condition.

I gave my 5 vehicons different names. Steve,Frank, Todd, Gavin and James.

I'm having exactly the same dilemma with my Skyquake! I keep hoping I'll find a second one to make the decision for me.

Lakeside didn't have him when I was there last week, picked mine up in Poole.

Anyone spotted MP Soundwave yet? I have the money literally burning a hole in my pocket!

Nothing else to report here. Picked up another Steve at TRU Medway, only because I had a £5 voucher that had to be spent and there was NOTHING else I wanted. Still that worked out to £2.99 for a Steve, so not all bad :) I'm not quite at Waaaaghlords levels, but I have 9 Deluxe, 9 Cyberverse, 1 First Edition, 2 sets of the Kreo Troop Builder and 2 Micro Changers.

Hey dude, it won't let me PM you (probably because we are both kinda n00bs.

Anyway, I popped over to Morrisons again this morning and did a raid on the Kreons. I got a few I was missing off of my spare set and picked up a bunch for you. If you are still interested I now have 10 / 12 of Series 1 on offer. They are: Rempage, Quick Slinger, Springer, Insecticon, Warpath, Inferno, Dirge, Singe, Blast Off and Hook. Only missing Bludgeon and Airachnid (They definitely don't have them at my Morrisons). I used the codes on the packets to make sure I was getting the correct ones.

Let me know if you're still interested! :grin:

Anyone else wanting Kreons, Morrissons has been a really good place in my experience, I have picked up all of Series 1 and 2 there and they keep a pretty good stock.
