    Is the battle damage limited to scorchmarks and the like or is there remolding?

    I have both. Alot of people do by now. To me, it certainly isn't worth whatever money it costs to have 2 more toys that I already have, just because they look like someone sneezed brown paint on them.

    Uhg. Battle damage is such a crappy paint app on any toy.

    I bought a single 08 Bumblebee yesterday for 9.99 from woolworths. maybe i would have waited if i had known of this. but i prefer my clean bumblebee than the battle damage.

    To be honest, the packaging is really, really nice. A good display piece. The photo doesn't do it justice at all.

    Hey Locustreign,

    Screw the Bumble Bees. Are you making a salad? Those ingredients sound like you are making a salad. Also the 2 in 1 shampoo is the way to go!!!

    trust me nothing moves. we have had the same hotrods, galvatrons and thundercrackers for longer than the minicons. i am going to check this guys sighting out tommorrow as well, since my mum needs to pay her car tax anyway, conviniently at the post office down the road from the tesco mentioned.

    and no green clubcard points either! for shame.

    Aye I'm scum!
    Our local tesco doesn't have them either - this is the first Tesco I'd seen with anything other than 3" tits (boom boom) actually. Actually I tell a lie - was in one a month or so ago with Alternators and 6" Tit Soundwave. Went back later and they were gone of course.

    tut tut, we have to keep up an image of caring about what the hippies say, if only until the global warming thang goes away like that 'OMG ICEAGE IZ COMING' that came in the 8/70's. i am going to see if i can see this in store just to say we have this before ayone else ha haha

    Oh, it's ok don't thank me or anything :wink: 

    Glad you managed to get one before they went - I'm having real trouble finding movie deluxes at all these days...

    Was in the giant Tesco in Stockport earlier today, the only deluxe they had was Classics Bumblebee - outside of the twopack in Prestwich, I've not seen any deluxes anywhere for over a week :confused: 

    Have money would like to spend... It's kind of like buying a Wii all over again :rolleyes2
