    Clearly you don't know about The Great British Conspiracy - as soon as The Revocation of the Declaration of Independance passes, all of the US and Canadian TF sites will be rightfully ours :D

    I dont really think that there is one, but there are quite a few of us UK'ers here. The TF community is not as strong in the UK, due to the exclusives over in the US (how many times have I found a new TF that I liked, only to find it was a Target or Walmart exclusive!) and BotCon and others.

    What would a UK site provide that this place cant? The only things that I really notice is the trade board, where 99 percent of the trades are US based and pretty much off limits to us.

    Yes, there is an English version. This site is entirely in English. :) 

    As for other UK sites...dunno, but there are many members here from across the pond, and some are even respectable.

    It seems to still be active-ish, as there's mentions on the frontpage of the movies, but there doesn't seem to be much going on. And the forum's non-existent as far as I can tell - you can get to it, but there's nothing past a front page, no sub-forums or threads at all.

    Which is our language, and don't you forget it! :p 

    But yeah, the only actual UK forum that I'm aware of offhand is thetransformers.net, and that's still pretty active as far as I know. I'm a member there, but I don't think I've posted, or even visited, in yonks.

    Damn, someone's finally cottoned onto the fact that we're tea-drinking stiff upper-lipped robots. Now where do they list "Hitmen" in Yellow Pages? :p

    Ah, but you said "we, the people, will win". You didn't specify "we, the American people". Therefore you are pwnzor'd. :D
