    Okay here's the rub:

    I am trying to get the Starscream and Rodimus Convoy Mega SCF's in the U.K. as quickly and as cheaply as possible. I mean look at them! Fact is, I don't care they don't transform (only ever display my toys in bot mode) so surely nobody could argue that these HAVE to be by far the best representations of these two characters available in action figure?

    I have 2 main questions:

    1) Are they worth getting and decent figures? I mean, like, up close? (they look fantastic in pix online - are they as good in reality?)

    2) Can anyone direct me to a U.K. seller, preferably on ebay, but who uses paypal, that I can get hold of with a view to getting them?

    Ebay:
    I'd suggest checking Ebay; you'd have the largest and most accessible list of sellers (UK and otherwise) there.

    I type in MEGA SCF or Rodimus Convoy or Starscream and nothing for Mega SCF.

    But there MUST be U.K. sellers on ebay who have these in stock, I just can't find em!

    Gah!

    As far as if they are worth it, I would say "yes" up to a certain price point.

    They are not very poseable and the joints get loose quickly.
    However, they are exact replicas of the animated version of the characters.

    Plus, the Starscream comes with the cape and crown.
    I found Rodimus Prime, but not Starscream.

    Its funny what a Transformers fan considers "urgent".

    Ebay:
    You could check some of the forums and look for regularly-posting UK members; they might know places to look. You could PM them.

    EDIT: Also, sometimes, you have to use a bunch of different terms to find what you want on Ebay. I found this after searching for "Rodimus."

    EDIT 2: D'oh. Beat to the punch.

    They're old releases, unfortunately, so you might not have the luxury of finding someone in the UK selling one. I think I got mine when they first came out in 2003 or something like that.

    Yeah, you're a few years too late. It's going to be hard to find them, in stock, in the UK, right now this second. You'll have to have some patience and just keep an eye out for them to pop up under the circumstances you want. The days of the Mega SCF figures being plentifully available on ebay and at every retailer is long, long past. Pretty much your only bet is going to have to be wait for one to pop up on ebay, and even then you may be in for a very long wait if you insist on them being in the UK.

    Actually I think the PVC's were better than Tits.
    On a side note, I love talking about tits......

    Have you tried BBTS? They are having a 20% off sale right now. Dunno how much shipping would be however.

    I had Starscream and he was cool. He got boring after the coolness of looking at him went away. I sold him cause I like my transformers to transform.

    Just considering the anatomical possibility of 3' Tits. Would that be circumference?
