Let's try to get Fort Max, Skywarp, Tikgnat and that Aussie guy who showed up asking about London involved. Make a capital Nerd Day of it.

Or any of you that ever sometimes swing into town. Let's get some dates up on here.
I'd be up for that. No later than May I would suggest, keep it as far away from the Olympics as possible....!!
My feedback.

So chaps, I finally got round to ordering the BW Sourcebook, which came today! That thing is immense - I thought there were only about 30 bios in it!

And on a related note (for once), have you guys seen this fella's artwork: Beast Wars Fan Art. Amazing.

As for soundwave, grab him, he's a great figure, if not a tad small.
He probably looks the part next to deluxe Starscream.

Tesco are clearencing most of their DOTM stock, saw fireburst prime and shockwave and sentinel for 9, I don't understand though why the deluxes were actually being clearanced for more than they were.

That is stunning! Hope he does Silverbolt...

I too am hoping for BW megs to get into the HoF, Goldlock. Gotta say though, I'm a little shocked at the amount of comments from people who believe that BW megs is just another Megs from another continuity. Someone needs to school these naive nippers!

Where as my Tesco's are stubbornly holding at 18 a voyager. Still don't think I'd buy prime or shockwave for that, though!

Mine doesn't even have a single Voyager. They restocked on the Deluxes, including the exclusives, and have some DotM Legions and an Ark, but zero Prime or anything else vaguely interesting.

In Shepton Tesco's defence, they did get in Thundercats classics (and I have everything crossed they'll get Turtles Classics in, too!), and they briefly had a tag out for the Prime Cyberverse Playsets (before Hasbro had a hissy), but for the most part they're pretty slow on the TF uptake.

I would have thought Hasbro getting pissy with their customers and denying them stock would be the absolute last thing they would want to do with their 'new' version of one of their mainstay lines...

I will fully admit to knowing almost zero about business practice, but I would love it if someone, somewhere could explain how this was a good idea? To cut off all supply of a brand new line to all stores, because one chain broke the street date, meaning that the store that broke the date are the only store carrying the line. It just smells of Hasbro UK throwing teddy out of the pram.
