    Thanks muchly for the suggestions! Liking the G2 love (I had Archforce at one point; indeed a totally awesome toy), and yeah, Snapdragon's on the shortlist: ta :) 

    As is a copy of the Chinese reissue of Visualworks, as I've just seen I've been diddled by a scam ebayer over the one I'd found on there. How irritating.

    Bad times - hope you get some actual holiday soon as. And cool about the Webb book - didn't know that had come out. Love that blog.

    What was the damage for him, guv'nor? I'd like to keep my options opened in case he's skipped at UK retail.

    @nice sideburns - man, take care dude. Hope this is a fleeting thing and normal service is quickly resumed.

    @motorthing - ah, herpes. Never fails to bemuse. Hopefully this has a happy ending..

    It's 3 mins to 9 so Im sort of expecting that to be a "no" for this evening. To the shock and surprise of no-one.

    I've been working non-stop on this and have a few boxes now of fanzines, badges and posters! They look absolutely fabulous in person!

    £35 including free postage. It appears the guy I bought it from has upped the price though.

    At least he brushes his teeth after every attempt at "binary bonding."

    Nice!

    I'm hoping Iron Factory do a Skywarp variant along the same lines.

    Really loving the Seekers so far, it's nice to get the main ones plus Ghost Starscream all in one hit and they work much better for me in this scale than MP as they take up much less room and are a lot nicer to play around with.

    Thought just occurred regarding the quiz.

    Last year there was a round regarding the guest's careers outside of their work on Transformers, it might be worth looking into that.

    Also, pissy weather better be nice one evening this week, need to spray some purple, do some airbrushing and sealing.

    Tbh, I was looking for RID Bludgeon, as he's been sighted in a Tesco, and I thought they may have him for delivery :lol 
    And there I was, thinking the only other transformer I would buy this year was TR Slugslinger...
