    Cheers dude. I was hoping Kapow or ID would get them but there's been no sign yet. They are available on eBay, from the states, but that comes with the caveat of impending customs charge.

    Yeah she's a very rare find nowadays. Been looking for her for the past 6 months, she appeared on one of the Facebook groups last week. £34 was an easy price.

    De nada, mate, I'm lucky it hasn't hooked me but I know the frustration I'd feel if I was after it. It's a real prisoner's Dilemma at the moment, when we can't trust in even limited supply being guaranteed.
    BTW Do you know ID Toys will aparently have them at TF Nation? If you're going you might want to wait for that?
    Firmly seconded, and even though it's not as necessary for Ratchet I'm still up for Roof/sled/shield and weapon pack upgrades.
    I hope they haven't forgotten Chromia/Thunderblast, there's still a dearth of both boat-bots and fembots in the line that she'd neatly slot in to ameliorate!

    As I espy heading back to the Grind after this weekend, the Mod Gods have smiled upon me - WE HAVE LEGO!
    And now Comms is a whole lot less draughty!
    DSC_0045.JPG
    After mulling it over, I decided to go with keeping the interior neat figuring that the exterior recessing would hide any LEGO underside sins on the exterior, and I'm chuffed with the results!
    DSC_0048.JPG

    Max now has a more convincingly-sealed exterior but I can show off the glazing better by shedding more light on the subject!
    DSC_0047.JPG
    Aw, YEAH! Autobot Blue FTW!

    Though I'm kinda Non-plussed it took me this long to figure out this solution, it's so logical with the amount of LEGO I've been fragrantly misusing in customs!

    Oh god, it's going to be a right scrum for Siege toys on Saturday morning, isn't it? I'd hoped at one stage that I might be able to snatch the wave 2 battle masters, but I'm not sure I even want to if it's going to involve elbowing other people aside.

    Incidentally, I'm not sure I understand the schedule for Saturday morning. According to the site, the opening ceremony is at 9am, the doors open to weekenders at 10am, and everyone else at 10:30. So who is in for the opening ceremony?

    Usually the doors open at 9 or 9:30 for weekend, half an hour later for general and opening ceremony at 10 or 10:30. I think they just made an error on the website.

    If my friend can't grab a brunt or springer at tfn for me, I'm just gonna throw my hands up an get them from amazon. Is it playing into their hands? Yes. But if the merchandise isn't being made available, what can we do? That, or miss it entirely.

    I'm feeling a bit down in the dumps today and can't quite put my finger on why. Switching over from ESA to income from my partner's new job is proving to be a bit of a bugger, so I can't even engage in the ol' TF retail therapy. Especially galling, since I can hear the discount Shockwave's at my local Smyth's calling out to me! :( 

    I'm gonna knock back some pain meds, crank up the TF 1986 movie soundtrack and see if I can get some housework done before my back gives out.

    I did not know that. I might wait then, though I suspect they’ll be long gone by the time I get through the doors.

    Halifax car insurance can piss right off - been with them for a year at £190, they want £336 to renew - I've made no claims or changes. I guess they don't want loyal customers...

    Yeah, this is what I'd assumed. I need to start planning what time I'll want to get there, to be honest. I rarely drive further than a work commute, and while Birmingham's hardly a great distance, I'm so unused to driving unfamiliar routes I reckon I'll need a bit of forethought.

    Hope the Housework Achievement helps alleviate it some, @Skjalddis!

    BTW Anyone who's sticking with stock Refraktor over the box set might want to swing by the Matrix Workshop...

    @Seeaich It did! Also decided to get the Autobots out for a group shot. This is everything I have, other than repeats of the same character (because in this house, you can't have too many Grimlocks, Bees, Rods or Magnususeses!)

    Autobots assemble! Wait, that's not right...
