    For those who don't venture out of this thread, go look in the news section at the listings apparently found on hasbro.com for the next year. The Generations stuff alone will be draining my wallet dry!

    We plastic crack fiends are always vulnerable

    Are those acid free plastic wallets? If not you might want to consider it, they're proably worthy of it right. What are they for(your collection)?

    Thanks for the follows as well guys, been trying to put some different pics on there.


    I don't want to say who it is yet but once the Ceno interview is done then I'll be able to say :) 


    They aren't but they'll be going into acid free ones later on :)

    Quick question, seeing as you fellas are more knowledgable than me about PAK figures... is the new Wonder Woman figure the same scale as the Arkham Catwoman? And what would be the cheapest I could reasonably get her for?

    Really? You should have snuck in a Metroplex on there too.....

    They look amazing, really nice bits of nostalgia. Just started following you on Instagram.

    Why did you have to mention this? 30th Generations Leader Megatron and Jetfire????? :drool:

    Some of those listings sound great, Rattrap, nightbeat and Voyager Roadbuster and Brainstorm will be bought but I am mighty erked that there do appear to be a good number of movie toys being released under the Generations banner, maybe it's so there are complex versions of movie 4 toys for collectors but I'd sooner see a Ironfist, Rodimus or Pyro anyday.

    What caught my eye was MP Starscream.

    MP Sideswipe is also mentioned.

    I see Leader Megatron and Jetfire, and wonder if that's going to be rereleases of the movie figures. Hasbro did say that the new Movie Prime would be released in the Generations line.


    I am not saying that is the case, but it would not surprise me

    i would almost certainly assume some of the new things listed there are from the movie line. with it going to be one of the bigger movies of next summer its about the right time for them to be doing the listings etc

    Yeah but so were a load of other takara products like the cap bots and b&w Donald former so I doubt that's an indication of a stateside release

    Also in regards to screamer a lot of old figures were mentioned also so I doubt it's an indicator of a new release

    Very good points, really hope that some of them are not Movie related. Really had my hopes up for a Roadbuster and Jetfire modelled along the lines of Blitzwing and Springer.

    Fully agree, and its neatly timed with the 30th Anniversary stuff.

    You may get your wish dude! :) 

    Just seems that with a movie inbound, and with movie Optimus Prime falling into Generations that it would make sense if a couple of other movie figures popped up in there.

    Might not though, just speculating.


    Just popped in a pre order for Fortis with Kapow, may have to get one in for Leo Dux tonight as well.

    I think it was more than the TVs they sent to the 500th - My dad was after a Dyson as well (in store today supposedly) and there were none - this is at 8.01 am... ridiculous.

    I would have got excited for the generations stuff but just shifted nearly all my CHUG stuff to fund MP's... would have to be exceptional to make me bite on any of them.

    As for the Hermes thing, my local one is a complete gem, shes a lovely lady, and I've (touch wood) never had a problem with them yet.

    I suppose its horses for courses - can't recollect who, but I think there's a few on here who have some awful posties? I'm lucky that I know mine and he's trustworthy.
