    Ok, drunk robot question: would you count Inferno as a Wrecker? He was working with them in the UK comics as an advance recon type, but was he actually one?

    (And happy birthday, @barry!)

    Nope! Too goody two-pumps. Autobot cars can’t be Wreckers; the Mothers of America would not approve. :) :p :D :cool:

    The Cyberverse Alpha Trion seems to have been skipped over entirely for UK release - unless anyone has seen it anywhere - it may be a bit of a brick but it's also perhaps the most like Alpha Trion in terms of appearance of any official toy which is some reason perhaps to get it.

    Oh and i've been watching Cyberverse a couple of episodes at a time at the weekend and much to my shock it doesn't suck. Considering the short size of the episodes I was expecting it to be very slight fair - but it's actually packed full of "Lore" & Nods and winks to prior Transformers content. It can be a tad annoying or childish sometimes - but that is mostly Bumblebee and one tends to give him a pass for that.

    I was somewhat amused that the Black Wheeljack Duplicate that caused the rust plague seemed to match the deco of the Black repaint Toyworld made - I wonder if they did that on purpose or if that was a happy accident.

    I expected Vince at TFN this year, but Cullen is good and explains the price rise!

    I did see one in Smyths but haven’t seen it again since, so they’re out there.

    Your 'Friend' might like Episode 3 even more than. It has shiny silver balls in it.

    The tfn announcement is massive but its looking like both Cullen and Welker may be at Liverpool comic con which is a bit annoying if tfn (I'm ashamed to put this) only has Cullen.

    SHAMELESS SHILLING

    More £1 start eBay auctions ahoy! This time it's NuRID and I have quite a few of those for sale, from Warriors to Team Combiners, to Minicons. If you ever felt the need for a cheap Crash Combiner NOW'S YOUR CHANCE!

    I also have 4 boxed Micron Legend (Armada)/Superlink (Energon) guys and also a MIB KO G1 Shockwave! It has a broken battery hatch but otherwise is pretty much immaculate!

    BID BID BID!

    Got a shipping email from Show Z Store for Transform Element Blackarachnia today! :) 

    For the time being Beast Wars Legends will go on my computer tower as I can fit the initial 4 figures from the various companies on there easily but will look to get a shelf cleared in my main display upstairs as the roster expands.

    Shiney silver balls indeed. This show has single handidly reignited my interest in new Star Wars. I love the artwork over the end credits too. That's a nice touch, as I have always enjoyed seeing concept art.

    Can't say I like this early dealer room access for those on the Cullen package milarky, hopefully there won't be too many paying out the 220 but I can see the dealer room being picked clean of its treasures before general access which hardly seems fair.

    Full weekend ticket holders have always had access to the dealer room a little earlier than general admission day tickets, going back to the days of AA.
