    Guys need help with something, I want to import some Dark Knight Rises Movie Masters from Amazon.com, how much extra than the actual price would I have to pay for them to ship it here? For example I'm ordering Movie Masters Bane who is $16.99, how much would I have to pay on top of that?
    Have to say I'm probably gonna buy MP Prime,so much toy goodness! And I thought Thundercracker's UK release was cancelled? :/

    So... Shockwave, Soundwave, and company will be released just after the game is out? Makes sense. Excellent.

    I call it that when ever my friend wants to go in the shop. I mean how else are you meant to say it.
    The shop annoys me as they play annoying music annoyingly loud.

    They also leave the CD player in easy reach of the public in the Worcester branch. I kindly replaced their generic crappy metal music with a Captain Beefheart album. The staff were befuddled to say the least.

    It sounds like a dyslexic porn shop. False advertising or what! :p 

    The local one somehow always has the distinct aroma of strong B.O., even in winter. It's disgusting. Yet they wonder why no-one goes in there. :puke:

    Were they in stock? If they weren't they have had them on the website since the DOTM toys were available in shops.

    Do you think the FE will be a full line or just a one off?

    And will they be released in UK stores, in anyway possible? We deserve them more than the yanks!

    Pardon me if I've somehow missed it, but has there been any official word as to whether the MP Thundercracker is going to be released in TRU's here in addition to the US? Thx in advance!

    So there we have it. FMH posted that prime breakdown is having no western release. More rage and ranting. I'm glad I got my am version from kapow when I did I can see the price going through the roof now

    Ebay:
    If i was to ever bite on the wreckers - I think I would swap out the arms and legs from blue foc blastoff and slap them on the white jumpstarter, he's just too damm white,

    Going back to my 86 leaders rant - some good points were made, I think the problem with galvy is that he's megatron,
    Just need to now scrap that idea and let him be his own person,
    IDW did it,
    Tfprime is pretty much a new continuity, so why not do this,

    I would of been 11 when prime died and megs was reformatted, I think I was gutted but I did embrace the new leaders, can't blame them for the brands decline,
    Reasons could include - the kids were getting older,
    Novelty wore off, fads only last a couple of years, toys became way too simplistic, to big, too plasticity, too predictable and needed gimmicks to sell (don't get me wrong, I loved the head/target masters) but sparkbots, pretenders, triggerbots, none were a patch on the original takara products,
    I'm now finding a new appreciation for the true ruler of the con army,
    All hail galvatron


    WoW glad I'm kept my am breakdown order after all,
    Hasbro must have their reasons and I'm sure swerve, and Silas breakers will still pop up,
