If the hotel deal is anything like last year's, it's a good 'un. :D

I think I paid £53 per night for a single. And I used it very little, running about most of the time.

Not exactly news...

But my Double Dealer and Beast Hunters Shockwave turned up from Crankcase.

I will of course continue to hunt down Shockwave in the shops, cos, you know, I like doing that sort of thing. My impatience and slight worry that he would never appear over here has lead to his current position. On my coffee table.

:grin:

Cheers Crankcase, I owe you a beer at AA :)

Only place I have seen Shark Megs was John Lewis.

I'm about to head out so I will see if I can find anything in Bluewater. Anyone want a Shark Megs if I see one?

Checked Bluewater. Nothing much new to report. The Entertainer had a couple of Kreo sets I hadn't seen; Beast Hunters Bumblebee and Prime. Picked up Bee as it was £8 but the Prime is inexplicably £29, for a set that is only marginally bigger, if at all!

Wilkinson had a BH Dreadwing. Which I may have to go back and buy.

I picked up the prime set back in october for £7 in home bargains. Might be worth a look to see if he's still available there. In terms of brick to box size ratio, bumblebee is deceptive as theres much less in his box than ripclaw or prime. Ripclaw and prime i would say have about the same overall amount of pieces, though more bricks in primes pack are used on him than his pack mate lazerback. Ripclaw has a bigger pack mate in skystalker. The ripclaw set is overall the best value for money. And the best looking if I'm honest. Though they are really starting to hit their stride with the brick-bot robot modes.


Please if anybody sees trailcutter and windchargers sets at retail anywhere, let me know. I'm nearly frenetic over trying to find the buggers.

The 2 small sets in the beast hunters kreo line are Microchangers windcharger and Trailcutter with missile platforms and one small predacon block beast each.

It's the only way so far to get these 2 to buff out a kreon ark crew.

Meant to mention that one as well. Only didn't because I picked it up last time :) £14.99 was a bit of a bargain as well.

I just ordered a stealth bumblebee, Wheeljack and knockout set and the Barricade and Auto Troops set off of a fw sellers on ebay. Prices seemed reasonable so I thought it was a good idea. The Windcharger set is on Amazon for £12.99 as well.

Having a Kreo afternoon :)

Did some one say they wanted a Kickback?

I was passing the Toys R Us at Old Kent Road today and they had 4 of them as well as Generations Megatron, Orion Pax and Trailcutters.

No Beast Hunters though :(

I'm ordering

And I've finally pre-ordered

Masterpiece Bumblebee

and still not sure whether to get Unique toys Soundmixer or MS-03 Radio

:grin:
