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.
One of them can be Carmichael

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.

Both Steve and Vehicons are perfectly generic.

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.

Darn tootin.
And Hot Shot is no handicapped bot. You don't need a learning disability to enjoy JaAm. (Official spelling there.)

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.

That's awesome. I'm pretty much finished with series 2, picked up 3 more (hardshell, perceptor & vehicon) this weekend, and I won Arcee on ebay. I have bids on Scourge and Hoist at the moment.

As for series 1, I won six packs on ebay just this weekend so I'll need to wait until they arrive to let you know which ones I need. Fingers crossed I manage to get Airachnid and Bludgeon. Definitely still interested in buying these from you.

Woo Hoo! found a Motorvators Gripper at a boot sale today for £1.


It's a cool toy! I had him as a kid and he's sitting in my loft somewhere in terrible condition. I don't recall him having had stellar ground clearance and his chestplate is all scratched up. Missing his sword and probably some of the tires. I was a horrible child.

I was very lucky to get mine.

I appears we are getting Australian over stock, all the current batches being put out in the Toys R Us's have distributed in Australia details on the bottom of them.

Keep an eye out, they are trickling down again, which also explains why so many are appearing on eBay now. Will keep an eye out for any more.

I got a Skyquake from the first batch to appear earlier in the year, luckily, a friend snapped one up for me.
I'm not so sure about the Aussie overstock idea, most figures we get have Australian details on them as well as US details. BUT, if you look, somewhere on the box will be a sticker showing that they've come from a distributor based in Manchester, who are clearly not Hasbro UK.
And therefore must be a far superior company.

Got the German Armada and Prime disks, both have English audio and work in the UK.

The Prime Blu Rays are actually region A, B and C.

According to board members on TFW2005 MP Soundwave is out in the UK, he ahs been bought in the north of the UK apparently.
