    They'll sell out of it eventually I guess.
    Smyths are pretty good about changing stock.

    Unlike a certain Toymaster who are still charging full price on the dregs of early Energon toys.



    Ehhh...... I could bring annother two at least.

    We could do worse than try..... something.

    Perhaps a meeting of minds over the nations faovurite tipple?

    I have to warn you though, the only other transfomers fan I personally know is my four year old son, and he's a bit of a demon with a few beers on him... :ev:

    I, too, saw exactly these same toys in my Smyths here in Londonderry, Northern Ireland, just this evening. Woo!

    Nothing I don't already have due to importing, but it'll be good to see new stuff on the shelves finally. It's been 6 months...

    Ditto. Pity it takes something like to make all the other Irish members to make a post.

    While we're on the subject, is there any way of finding out how many Irish members there are? I'd certainly be interested to know as I'm the only 30 year old I know who openly admits to being a toy fan (there is one guy I know who's a closet Care Bear collector, but thats for a whole different forum...)

    This reminds me of how Transformers New Zealand started out a few years back. Just go on guys, I'd really like to see an Irish fansite we can add to the Trans-Europe Express group soon. :)

    Seeing the new packaging for real.... it looks even better than I thought.
    Same with the white on Vector Prime, always thought the Japanese colours were so much better, but seeing it in the flesh now i don't mind the white at all.

    Hope they hurry up with Hot Rod, Red Alert and the like

    Ah but the name is Hot SHOT... so it must be a totally different character.
