Yeah he combines with Energon Swoop, not 100% but I think only the pair can combine unlike the other Energon autobot deluxes.

Im not too big on the energon combiners thing they look like something out of a power rangers show oh and the plastic on the energon remold is top notch too as the toy has no loose or shaky parts and everything snaps together perfectly

the recouloured voyager grimlock is a bit better too in my opinion as the paint scheme is more glossier and feels more complete

As much as I want the Grimlock set, the prime evolution set is more of a priority for me. Though now that I think about it an lockdown set would be nice :P

Also I like the Energon combiners to a point, but things may of gone better if they had set pairs, may have worked better with colour schemes. Plus they reminded me of the multiforce from Victory.

Hey all.

Not much to report here, my local Asda had the Wallmart 2-Packs, only had Grimlock + Optimus and Slug + Stinger. Picked them up because they were £8 and I absolutely love Slug's choice of mould.
I know have 2 of that mould, Triceradon and Slug, I really want Killer Punch though :) Absolutely one of my favourite Beast Era figures and has made me want to get more Neo nonsense :) Btw, if you haven't seen Thew's review of him on Youtube, watch it now. (and then watch all of his reviews, as Thew is awesome.)

http://youtu.be/5LeuMYri84E

On another note... How are those £8? You get a legends class AND a Scout or Deluxe (I know Grimlock and Swoop are both scouts, but there is no way Slug is, he is too big and too complicated to be anything other than a deluxe!) A single AofE Deluxe is £14.99, unless you buy the evolution 2 pack in which case you get a mini con and its... £14.99.

What is going on with Hasbro's pricing? I know it is always odd but this is just seven shades of random weirdness.

Also had a Jet Vehicon turn up from eBay. I am now only missing 2 moulds from the entire Prime range (5 if you count first edition, still don't have Prime, Cliff or Bee... Crap or the Deluxe Prime and Meg 2 pack... Ok I am counting First edition separately now!) which are Breakdown and Gaia Unicron. I honestly could care less about Unicron but I NEED Breakdown. Just wish I wasn't going to have to fork out a fortune for it.

Anyway, hope all of you are having all of the fun at Auto Assembly. I wanted to go, but unfortunately I opted for a week in Rhodes instead. Which was awesome. If anyone want's to buy me things, I will more than happily give them monies :)

Wow ths post turned into an essay really fast...

To be fair with regards to the asda stuff £8 is the reduced prices as my local asda have them in with the exclusive legends figures (want grimlock for my Predacon mold collection, and is it bad that I want both the exclusive figures?).There's no telling when they'll go back up.

Hi, so today I was looking around my local shops to see if they had anything new in, and in my local Asda I noticed they had some of the Wave 2 Legends figures (They only had Grimlock and Stinger) but as I only get the deluxes and higher, I did not pick them up. Not sure if anybody elses Asda has these.

Also my local Toys R Us has recently got some Evolution 2 - Packs. I picked up Strafe and Bumblebee, but I already had Slug so the evolution pack for him was practically useless for me, and as for the Grimlock one I already have leader Grimlock.

However I did not see Evolution 2-pack Optimus Prime.

Still no Wave 2 figures though :-x

Had a double haul of bumber uber wonderful joy yesterday :)

Part 1: Leader Class Prime and Grimlock. Finally got round to picking them up from Argos, £39 is each, still mad expensive, but I wanted them.
Part 2: Grimlock Evoluation Pack from Toys R Us. Love the Energon Grimlock, he is ADORABLE!

Part 3: (Most exciting) Thanks to the excellent, awesome, gentlemanly, amazing and other words to that nature Va'al I have a haul from Auto Assembly that I shall nab from him at the station tomorrow :) Hurrah! The haul includes some nice new treats and more wonderful Beast Wars Neo madness to add to my Neo Madness shelf.

Va'al I am beyond grateful!

You are more than welcome! :D

I have bought so many toys this weekend, and only two of them were actually for me - it feels weird. :P

I'm posting the toys in the Poses Thread, and the artses in the Comics Haul one, for anyone interested.

I insist on your attendance. I need a fellow northerner to prop up the bar throughout the day. We also need to enter a Seibertron.com team for the pub quiz!

Its the northern uprising!

I would like to make it along to an AA meeting sometime to help prop up the bar and have a bit of a giggle at all the Transformers nerds! :lol:

I am just the worst at trying to save money for these sort of things though, even something fairly local like Collectormania @ Milton Keynes tends to come around a week/days before pay day which aint good!

Ive been meaning to ask, perhaps I missed a post but whatever happened to Banjo-tron..?
