    Will do in the morning, work and wife don't appreciate me playing with toys when I'm meant to be spending time on them :)

    Most English-language TF packaging has Hasbro Australia details on it these days, i think.

    Does anyone want to buy my stealth BB and deadend from wave 4 or shall I send them to eBay and try my luck?

    You did....but they're both 1 per case IIRC.

    Apparently Tesco ordered them too, not sure if anyone mentioned that?

    Airachnid is truely shite, shame tho,
    Her legs can barely move, due to the massive amount of helicopter on her back, seems pointless giving her ball joints,
    The way the arms fold out is horrible and we all know about her hands,
    Head has little movement due to the fact she has a cockpit behind her,
    But for some reason when I re-attatched her blades/spider legs she looked OK, I kind of like her as a display piece, just got to find an OK pose (even tho her limbs barely move) she's tall, about same size as dead end head wise but her slim figure give a smaller look,
    But what pisses me off the most is why give her shitty weapons paint apps when her legs needs it the most, she is also lacking alot of gold colour,

    I an see alot of radicon mods being made on this one,

    Nell I'm still interested in your black bee, ile try and pm you my thoughts tonight,
    Nell have you had any experiance with the rid bee mold??

    Yes. Ironhide and Dreadwing have been found in Sainsburys so far. A mate just picked em up for me today! :D  £8.99 each.
    Has Breakdown been seen anywhere or new Legions?

    I think I am going to keep Dead End but so far unsure what I will do with the Shadow Bee.

    Also of note both black bee and dead end look great in bot mode, Hasbro has done very well with the repaints in the prime line, I for one will be keeping both

    Hey mate. Are the Prime rid deluxe wave 1 cards usa versions backing cards any good to you? No bubbles on them. Also Do you need a Bumblebee one?

    I've no experience with the rid bee at all. Don't intend keeping this one either tbh. I'm only going for show characters with the prime line no repaints here.

    And not sure how much to ask as kapow still have em for £18

    If you're happy to let it go for £18 I'l bite, if you want more, ebay might be the best way.

    Really? I just assumed that Dreadwind and Ironhide were the only ones in this Commander wave. Who else shares the wave with them?

    I finally got my hands on the only Bee that I am interested in.... and sourced the NYCC set for a decent price. I think that the only RiD Bee version I am vaguely interested in is Hot Shot. Stealth Bee looks OK, but is one I will wait to see on clearance if at all.
