    Wonder if that'll pique interest and get more "casual" fans going...

    Well, it's a short train journey for me, so I'm tempted; but the danger is, with my lack of self-restraint, I end up spending far too much cash, if there's folks there selling stuff! My "casual" collecting would be out the window, along with next month's paycheck...

    Sounds like a good laugh tho, could probably spend a small fortune just propping up the bar

    If it's like 2006, I'll probably end up picking up a whole bunch of guys to finish an area of my collection I had previous not even considered finishing. Hmm, let's see, AEC - done, Beast Machines - AA 2006, Beast Wars - Botcon 2008, Generation 2....

    Uh oh.

    I tell you what, meeting the people from Europe and England in particular was one of the high points of my trip to Botcon this year. I don't know exactly what it is, but the English sensibility and humor is second to none in my book. I've other priorities to see to presently but as soon as I am able I intend to visit merry old England and one of these Auto Assembly's. I hope you cats across the pond have yourselves a good time.

    Cheers:TX

    Only worth £2000 if they teleport!!

    (although if they only teleported what they were covering... that could get messy)

    Are my eyes bent, or do those Prime and Magnus MP's in the picture have G2 autobot symbols on their right shoulders?

    I ain't never seen that before.

    Hard to say; Prime's doesn't look overly G2, but Magnus' does. I'm tempted to guess it's something to do with the the light reflecting off them, but even so, they still look smaller than the insignias on the left shoulders.

    Maybe that's why they're rare... :p
