I love Cybertron Prime, until a little while ago I had mine displayed with Leo Prime forming one of his arms. Although I'm missing one missile and his cyber key.

That Megatron is a cracking deal though, was going to buy one off a guy I worked for as he told me it was complet in box. It wasn't. It was missing it's gun, his cyber key and his box was trashed. I gave it back to him and told him, and he went back to saying that it was complete in box >:oP

I am back on the lookout for Animated Lockdown, which keeps eluding me. Might wait until Auto Assembly though, unless something really cheap shows up on eBay in the meantime!

Or, any tips..? ;)

In other news, Alex Milne is taking more sketch commissions for AA too, over on Full Metal Hero! Just secured a full-body MTMTE Lockdown. *drools*

Stop making me jealous :sad: :lol:

I'm after both animated lockdowns as well he was a fantastic toy. Sadly I gave him away (to a children's hospice) when I thought the desire to collect had left me.

Well, its time to leave work. So I think I will go home and look at Blazing Lockdown who sits atop my display shelves while I wonder where the heck I put my regular version. ;)

Curse you, Ravage XK. *shakes fist*

First deal didn't work out, so still have Animated Sentinel Prime, Jazz and Jetfire-Jetstorm for anyone interested! They might go up on eBay by the weekend.

Megatron isnt heavy but his forward two wheels hang behind him in bot mode, so that may be an issue depending on how you want to pose him.

As for prime, the heaviest part is his super mode jet pack (it's the guns mainly) there's not many poses he can do in super mode, even less when combined. However as you'll discover ;) he is amazing to play with :D

I guarentee those stomp and chomp grimlocks will be a failure as who in there right mind would pay £90 for it plus the toy is inaccurate as grimlock doesnt speak in the film during his 5 minute screen time

Actually they're redcos of other transformers. Grimlock is Scout cruellock from Energon, Slug is from Beast Wars Neo and Strafe is just a blue Terrasaur from Beast Wars :) Hence I want all Three.:P

So I called into symths today to see what TF stuff they had.
They were selling off all the Beast Hunter stuff, voyagers were £14 each but they only had Ultra Magnus and Grimwing. Deluxes were £6.99 but again selection was limited, this time toRachet, Sparkstalker, and Lazerback. They also had cyberverse legions cut-throat for £1.99 and some cyberverse commanders for £3.99 (which were Predaking, Optimus Prime, bulkhead and one lone Starscream).
AOE stuff was the usual dino riders, battle chargers, chomp'n Stomp Grimlock and oddly enough reduced construct-a-bot Strafe for £6.99. To top it off they had series 1 transformers Kreons (which I grabbed one of with some change I had, got Jarguar) these were normal price though.

got Kre-o Microchanger Silversnout today as a birthday gift, so now I have to resist trying to buy any more of the wee blighters.

Also got told the TF Go! shinobi team...Hishoumaru? the bird guy...is on order for me from Amazon, so I've went and ordered the other two as well.

Went on TRU site to see what my local has in stock for collection...bugger all of stuff I want. Nearest store that has Metroplex is Gloucester. they can get that right up them, given the ridonculous price for a neutered Metro. No ta.
assembling a Neo-G1/TF:TM cast. Please PM if you have (or know of) the following at a reasonable price: Classics or Henkei Astrotrain, Sunstreaker, Sideswipe, Blurr, or 3rd Party iGear Ratchet and Ironhide.
Also looking for Universe Repugnus and Overbite, Frostbite and Longhorn and any Webdiver toys.

Well today was a complete turn around for me, went to sedgefield carboot sale and found a lot of nice little things.

Got a Depth Charge missing his gun and sword tail, transmetals waspinator (again missing a few bits like half of his insect legs and rear wings) and two jetstorm drones (one missing head) all for £2 :)

Then another stall yielded me three yellow constructicons, blot and the original toy of the guy who replaced wildrider on the new Menasor. That was £2.50.

The best thing though was getting RiD prime, with box, all complete with instructions for a fiver :D now to track down magus...

The AOE legion single packs are showing up in tiny amounts in regular Asda stores. I got Grimlock and Stinger, they're mixed in with the 'RTS' legions. Shelf label says £5 but they ring up at £3.

At a car boot sale got a complete FOC Bumblebee a Animated Ratchet minus one tool and Energon Superion who is missing one set of goggles.

My friend just got back from SDCC with my bits. Now cant afford AA so wont be going due to having to pay for SOE Galvatron, Hound, Leader Prime and Grimlock, Prime and Grim 2 pack, the botcon packs and SDCC Dinobots set.

Im seriously running out of space.

Also got a complete Bugly off of eBay.

Weird thing is buying toys cost me less than taking my last GF out, the joys and perils of being single
