    I think it's an "official" 'shop to show the chosen deco and the slight tweaks that have been made to said head and face. It looks like cg to me and not a physical figure.

    My laptop broke down, since Sunday. Find it hard to believe, it’s only a little more than 2 years old. It says hard disk cannot be detected!

    Payday today. Going to see Mandy on the big screen tonight, finally. Wish it was on IMAX though :( 

    I'm going to take a mooch out to a couple of local Home Bargains tomorrow - if I come across a Chaos boxset I'm fairly unlikely to want the Prime, clone or Rodimus Titanmaster, so is anyone interested in any of those three?

    Kapow said earlier in the week that preorders are being sent first, and general stock o deluxes should go up for sale either today or monday.

    Am I crazy or wasn't Rescue Bot Academy supposed to air this year ?

    Where is it ?

    I'm wondering as someone was kind enough to point out the large Hotshot Rescue bot is a Bonus item on Amazon : so where is the rest of the toyline - its not being shown off, and where is the catoon ?

    I'm curious as I wanted to know if the new Characters are going to be compatible sizes with the existing toys - or if they plan to change the line any. I'm also super keen to find out if they are going to be doing any more Rescue Minicons ( I love those things - even with the half-hearted Transformations) - they are great just as "Pets" for Transformers. I love the way they often match the colours of a larger toy too.
    Such as Silverback the Gorilla matching the Boulder Snowmobile.

    Speaking of which if anyone wanted the Bumblebee and Boulder sets they are not half price on Ebay at a few sellers and are totally worth it for the Minicons alone.

    I would be so much more excited for Clones if the full set wasn't such a bugger to chase (other than as Takara versions). Darn Hasbro lying their tailpipes off about them being "Bigger than a Legends" they are so not - they are Legends class toys.

    Though the theoretical idea of a Generations Scout+ Class is a nice one.

    Skytread is both great ; and a little bit irksome - he has a Titanmaster to complement him - and yet isn't Titanmaster Compatible (not even in the Legends like way). I don't think he even has any 1.5mm posts on him for them to stand on. So all he can do is hold his vehicle in weapon mode.

    There is a certain disjointedness going on here. We have Six Gun, Brunt and Cog clearly designed to go with Generations toys & Optimus even has a perfect slot in his chest in robot mode for a POTP Matrix - and yet that same line is purposefully "Different" enough that it doesn't match the rest of the toys they have already made.

    It's a bit frustrating - I can only speculate that they are forgetting play value and cross-line play (to some extent) due to it being a prequel. That said the Siege line does have a degree of incidental compatibility to it.

    But The went and made a "Battlemaster" Blowpipe and never show it being used by Slugslinger. The other one is clearly made with POTP Rodimus and TR Hot Rod too.

    As for The Titan master Rodimus - I'd suggest a good use for him is to crew seats in base modes and turrets (or toys that hold two figures) or simply to use as an alternative head for The Takara Legends Hot Rod to make him look even more distinct.

    He's a nice figure, mine arrived today and is currently sat on my desk prior to heading home to establish his place on my shelves. The only issue I had with Amazons delivery though, was that somehow the blister packaging was completely mullered. So much so that the plastic had split, I'm glad I'm not a MISB type of person.

    You are indeed, but you're not alone. Of 52 orders 27 have still to pay. There's no rush, as long as I get it a week before the 25th of November it should be good, as I'm not giving the order until December.

    Anyone else got any shipping notices from Kapow yet for the Siege preorders, yet? I'm not that anxious since I'm still in America until Tuesday, I was just curious since the invoices went out days ago.

    If you find two box sets on the shelf, please pick one up for me! Would rather have the whole set, will happily pay £30 plus postage plus a bit extra for your trouble :D 

    The same goes for anyone else in here on the hunt this weekend, I’m starting to think they’ll never make it as far South as Dorset/Wiltshire...

    Alas, another day of TF hunting, another blank! Can’t believe I can’t find the box set at six different home bargains! Anybody else had any luck yet? Anyone with a spare they’d part with?
