    They're quite smaller than older deluxes but I really don't have an issue with the size anyway :)  I'll be shopping with you in future mate!

    Somebody apparently paid for one in advance, and posted a photo of the receipt as proof.

    I think it was even on TRU UKs website briefly?

    I also think it's entirely possible they're not really dealing with Hasbro UK at all on this one.

    We don't really know what's happening at all. We've seen no formal product announcement from Hasbro.

    If we don't see anything at SDCC...it's probably not happening in any market.

    Looks like I'm gonna pull that off - aside from GDO Springer, Hasbro hasn't seen any of my money in about a year, and I don't see them getting any more in the future. Declining product quality + poor service + steep prices = sad collector.

    Noticing some of you have been looking back on your childhood years I have been thinking about my childhood years as well.

    Back in 2000/2001 when I was 12 years old there was a set of small transforming model kits which I believe was called web warriors. I remember having a green one which transformed into an insect of some sort.
    Does anyone else remember these and have I got the name correct or was it something else entirely.

    He is still too busy to even state what the figure is and take a picture, but not too busy to list a dozen MP figures including the price and shipping cost. If he is too busy, just list them when he does have all the details.

    Dammit. I have just realised the one situation under which I would consider getting FoC Bruticus - the Amazon version of Blast Off, Vortex and Brawl, and the regular release of Onslaught and Swindle.

    If anyone wants the reverse (or wants to buy the two I dont want) let me know.... it could happen!

    Hasbro get TFs outside of normal channels (that being Hasbro UK) on a regular basis, such as the recent Scout redecos, Highbrow/blue Fallen, all those Animated Voyagers that showed up a couple of years back.

    Can't believe you lot are going crazy for that new Asian Springer mold - it's hideous! I'm not even ordering it and I'm desperate for a decent Springer (don't like the 3rd party one either).

    Or it could just be that we, you know, like the mould. Different people, different tastes and all that.

    Man this thread moves fast. Lost a lot of interest in buying TF's lately, not much out anyway.

    I have gone a bit Hot Toys mad tho, my order list is getting large and now i'm thinking of ordering the 1/6 Tumbler, just need to run it by the girlfriend. Put in a lot of overtime and have wanted one for 2 years but without a Batman it seemed pointless, but now i've ordered a DX11 Batman the Tumbler is soo tempting.

    I just can't bring myself to put that much money down...
