    Is it true aboriginals are like savages? Ive once read that if you go into their territory without an elders approval you aint coming back...

    My bad. I was under the assumption that you were from there. Theres always so much Australia news on Transformers websites, that Im assuming there are tons of transformers collectors out there. Or is it just a small number of people?

    Apparently it is a high source of protein and is 2% fat. I don’t know because I’m vegetarian.

    There is transformers fans in Australia but it’s a hard life. We don’t get much conventions, toys and they’re always exspensive.

    Remember when this thread was about TRU shutting down? Remember when people were angry about Shadow Panther? Remember when it wasn't about fucking boomerangs?

    Ive seen kangaroo in exotic meat markets. In all honesty it sounds yummy. I just wouldnt whack it on the head with a boomerang to kill it. I suppose those aboriginals eat dingos too?

    What? No! Where did you read that!?

    There is remote Aboriginal Communities out in the AYP Lands, but you're not going to be murdered by going there (and there's not much reason to in the first place). They're just a remote communities run by a local government. They do follow traditional laws which can... confuse things in our court systems occasionally but they're certainly not savage!

    It was somewhere on the internet I read that. Cant remember where but years ago. Something along the lines of only a few of them speak english and they are the ones that will get permission from the elders to bring you in. But its an unusual culture. Maybe Ive been watching too much crocodile dundee. But I know its a fact they have 16 foot crocs out there. Ive seen them in pictures. Thats hella scary I dont know how those people survive out there with so many natural predators...

    This was years ago. Besides its not like there are ways to find out about Australia besides the internet. I dont think the people who wrote books on aboriginals are going to have stories about cannibalism. Because if it was true they wouldnt be around to write would they? But I hear Ayers Rock is a sacred area to them. You cant just hike there, throw up a line and start climbing....

    16 foot crocodiles? You must be talking about the baby ones, they are much, much bigger than that! Let’s not start on our god damn sharks, snakes, spiders, jelly fish, octopus, stone fish, poisonous marsupials and drop bears!! I’m often too scared to leave the house which is why we buy our transformers online. We probably have them in stores, but it’s just not worth the risk to leave home.

    Shadow Panther will be made, that's being made principally for the Japanese market.

    The anger and frustration is that many paid up front preorders at TRU.AU and these people will not get their figure and cannot get a refund from TRU. That and for some reason the boomerang discussion that keeps coming back because. Well. Boomerang.
