I went this year and managed to score a Universe Onslaught for a decent price.
Plus I got the HeadRobot upgrade kit of a friend who had a few to make him into Fort Max.... if I ever get round to doing these upgrades.
Him, Battle Tanker and Skeletor are all waiting to be sorted.

Looks like FansProject are going to be releasing their Function X Headmaster soon. First up it seem to be Chromedome: http://www.tfw2005.com/transformers-...motion-176478/
As much as I'd love a Classics version of Chromdome the fact customs fees would be slapped on puts me off. Plus I'd like to see the figure first since the images that were shown at this years TFCon didn't inspire me much.

Not headmasters look neat, not ordering anything from bbts though, they're an absolute customs magnet.

TFSource sell much the same range of TF merch as BBTS, and are a lot less likely to get you collared by customs, if you've not used them before.

With these Headmasters in the works, wouldnt it be great to find some good condition G1 versions to display with them? If only we knew where to get such specimens.... I know that this will disappoint a lot of people in this thread... but the faux fur coat has now been sold. Sorry guys, you were all too slow.

These new Headmasters have me in turmoil (first world problems, et al). I always far preferred the Autobot versions to the Decepticons, of which the one I liked the most was always Skullcruncher. However, the FP Skullcruncher in Prime colours looks pretty bad to me, while the other two Decepticon versions look by far the best of the bunch. I really like Chromedome as a character, and he would have to be really bad for me not to buy him to be honest, but I wasnt wild about Brainstorm when images were first released, and even Chromedome looks..... fragile, if thats the right word.

The only thing that I am not confused about is that I am not interested in Minerva.

The current news rumour from TRU is it won't be out until January.
Ofc saying that it will appear 2moro now! But if you're able to I would try and find one. You will probably end up paying less than you will here but also get it faster.

I'd grab him if you see him, the constant ping-pong between Hasbro UK and TRU is odd at best, unreliable at worst.

"Great news fans, we have this 100 toy you're all clamouring for in the warehouse, *but* we're going to wait until after Xmas when you've got the least amount of disposable income before we put it on sale. That way we can blame low UK sales on why we don't bring figures over to the UK and not our own incompetence"

And if you find a GDO Wheelie I'd love you forever
