    As I often say: Where are my bloody Seacons Hasbro?!

    This line does have a lot of potential. I'm quite interested to see how it pans out.

    I prefer to think of myself more Alpha Trion, an impossibly old bastard with a vast (mostly useless) knowledge of Transformers History, and a penchant for fiddling with some figures' fates.

    With some of the repaints we've had I honestly can't decide if this is real or a joke....

    Kapow have got Stepper and red Swoop up for pre-order at £20, less than previous Prime Wars trilogy exclusives...

    Well I rather doubt the Seacons will surface (ha) as they would need a considerable amount of retooling in most cases. Tentakil might even need a new mould. In Stepper's case the Jazz mould had never been reused (aside from the MAGA-free variant) and as we know Hasbro almost never let a mould go without at least two uses. Kickback, Beachcomber, Battleslash, Roadtrap, RID Blurr, Twinferno and Soundwave all have gone without remoulds or redecos so I think they'll be higher priorities.

    Netflix have now cancelled Daredevil so I've cancelled my subscription as there wasn't anything else on there that I watched.

    It would seem Disney are making sure their characters are all back with them in time for the launch of their streaming service so maybe there's a chance it could continue there.

    @Convoy,
    Glad your last day went nicely, good luck with your next move!

    @Large,
    Great work with the recreations of the old game covers!

    Morning all

    Before it goes to eBay, I have a minty Da-01 ex I have decided to part with. Unused sticker sheet. No cracks in wings but usual slight stress marks on cockpit section. Really only ever been displayed because I have hero colours da-01 which is my go-to-toy and da-06 as well. Gutted to have to move him on but it seems gratuitous to have all three at Xmas when there are presents to buy... :-(

    Looking for £110 plus shipping.

    Apologies to all outside the uk but I do not ship internationally.

    I also have a da-02 for sale, looking for £20 plus shipping.

    Select's really put me in a quandary about whether to pursue a non-paint wearing CW Bluestreak, as I'm really starting to wonder if the Prime Wars Trilogy and it's omissions were always intended to create a catalogue of designs for repainting in a collector line like this and the Special Eds were a feasibility test.

    Flippin' rain, rain go away! One cannot experiment with an electric kettle outdoors in this inclemency!
    And Twinferno's dis-assembled for dyeing far easier than I thought!

    I'd always thought his wings were pinned, I'm actually half wondering if I should look at sorting some wriggly scorpion legs for him too as they come off so easy.

    That Ricochet is mighty tempting, especially since I never picked up the original Jazz mold. Will probably have to wait till I have some post-Xmas finances though. Hopefully, they won't be 100% cleared out by then

    Well, that's a lot of pics to grab so here's said proto with the Wildfly bot & beast mode IDW & G1 art, a pretty basic colour change and new bot head and he's done.

    Slog (black & Gold fella) might be either a cheeky straight repaint of Hun-Gurrr or the Grimster and thus the least G1 but the rest would be fairly simple recolour/remoulds or they may do Dinoking over Monstructor and give 'em straight Dinobot recolours/remoulds (remember also that wee twin cannon over his head oh the proto missing from retail Snarl).
