    Oh... I'm going to be there for sure. This year they've got something called "The Hub" with several demonstrations of how to Kitbash and draw comics. The ability to buy tools to Kitbash yourself. A mega load of dealers from also Germany and England are going to be there.

    But for those among us who also want to go, better HURRY!!!! The online shop, where you can buy tickets in advance for a reduction price, closes on Friday night 24:00 hours. After that, you'll have to buy the full price of the ticket at the entrance.

    Yeah thats me and my wife in one pic

    I had 60 of those Suntorms/Shockwave sets - Shockwaves went very fast

    I angered a few dealers during setup as I wouldn't sell them bulk lots of them and only one each, wanted to save them for everybody else

    Had a great time, tired long, long old drive back to London

    Had a nice time as wel. Sold a lot, not as much as I wanted. Thanks Paul for the nice Unicron! Very happy with it. Same that I missed out on the Ani Shockwave's, would have been nice to get one. See ya next year!

    Ra88 at one off year pic's you said: 'This was ridicilous: The guy asks 650 for Fortress Maximus...AND CAN'T EVEN POSE HIM RIGHT. lolwtf'

    It's not mine Fort Max, but I'll tell you why it's posed that way. That pose was to represent the japanese boxart.

    Nice pics though....

    Haha, I thought the same when I saw that fort max.... But now it all makes sense. I presume it was still there by the end of the day and not sold ? :)

    Didn't sold that day, problem is that it isn't the corect sword I guess. It's the RID sword, need to be the red one.

    I did not notice that. Anyway, the main thing is that we (but I can only speak for myself) had a great time. Too bad my wallet does not always cooperate, just too many things I want and too little cash. Also missed out on the ani shockwaves!!!

    By the way the guy who makes all those prowl customs is a person who is a mentally challenged person who''s likes prowl a bit too much. He make's every Transformers look like Prowl. It's a pretty nice guy that can make a very cool Transformers drawings. People do find it strange (i did also), but when you know how does it, you'll understand.

    Too be complete, it's not the guy in the picture too the left, but he makes kitbashes too.

    Still trying to findout who Soundwave was, I gave her my last set of Decepticon Earrings and would love to know her email/msn/something!

    Pity I wasn't there to see this year. unlike last year's festivity. I was in Liverpool at the time awaiting to see Jeff Wayne's Musical version of The War of The Worlds live on stage for the second time now since 2006. But I'm glad to see everyone had a good time with this bundle of fun. I hope to be in next year's to see if things are going smoothingly.
