Y'know, Ryan's not particularly impressed by his 2-million-or-so post forum disappearing either. But we're doing what we can and making the best of it.


Really, he told me that he LOL'ed for hours when he realised what had happened.


You forgot about the beer.

Hey guys, ihas there been any word from hasbro UK about whether we'll be getting the Ultra Magnus/Skywarp set and the classics constructicons?


I'm going to go ahead and guess 'no' :P but still, worth an ask.

Hey Chaps,

I tell you what, having a good clear out really does make you appreciate what figures you've got and hanker after others! I've cut my collection by a good 90% and I've got to a stage where I want to just "fine tune" what I want.

Ironically I've gone to the dark side and all but three figures I own are all Decepticons now :twisted:

The sigs now work of HTML, rather than PHPBB code... Personally I dont see the point, but hey, it's not my site.

>Profile
->Edit
-->in the box for the sig code:

Code: Select all
<img src="*image address*" border="0" >


That should do it.

I have no idea how to do quotes, and have forgotten the code for links.

I can't even get into my profile yet, but I can wait - I'd be more worried about not accessing my PMs!

Tis' a shame though as I think I need to have more of an evil sig now that I have a stack of Decepticons overunning poor Optimus, Jetfire and Hoist...

Considering the news about new UK legislation on replica firearms makes it very unlikely that I'll get my wants - TFC Megatron and MP Megs.
