    With the Japanese manufacturers Takara have more leeway and have managed to get licences with nearly all of them. Soooo I'm hoping for the Datsun brothers to turn up. If not may have to ask Tigerblade if he'd consider commissions!

    A stupendous job mate. These look amazing.

    Gaaah, moving into a new flat sucks.

    + = I get to find a new awesome place to display mah robots.
    - = landlord tells me "you need to phone the utility companies to get the bills in your name." I say no problem, and who do I have to phone? He says "well I don't know, the last tenant didn't say anything."

    fml. OH WELL.

    If I wasn't hemorrhaging money I would be all over that. That is an amazing deal.

    Given the current state of the Alternity line, I think that you will be waiting a long time. If we see another Alternity figure - especially given the direction of MP Sideswipe - I would be very surprised.

    Just phone up one utility company and tell them that you would like to switch. They will probably be able to tell you who you are signed up for!

    Or build fires and collect rainwater yourself. The government doesn't want you to know this.

    I sold a Human Alliance Skids on ebay on 1/8/12 on a buy it now. The buyer paid promptly and i posted it 1st class recorded on 2/8/12. I checked the tracking the next day and it stated the item was at the sorting office waiting to be collected. A week went by and and I checked its staus again and it was still the same. I contacted the buyer who thanked me for letting him know the item was at the sorting office but there was no card left for him. I replied and told him to take id and collect the item. The status on the royal mail tracking states they still have the item. I have contacted the buyer two times since but he does not reply. Is there anything else i should do, i have not withdrawn the money yet from my paypal account but have paid the selling fees. I don't want the item returning as the buyer seems to not want to collect it then have to pay to send it out again.

    Tricky one that, surprised no card was left - but yeah there are crap posties out there, maybe the card was mistakenly thrown out as junk or was intertwined into other junk mail and disguarded,
    Think its only 3 weeks they hold it for, before it gets returned to u - usually by 2nd class,
    None of this is your fault/problem - all you can do is sit tight, the buyer has all the rights and if he so chooses he'll get his money back through eBay regardless of his total lack of ability to get off his arse and go to his local sort in office and his lack of respect for you,
    My advice is do nothing and just wait and see,
    Sucks when this sort of thing happens,

    Anyone interested in the following as it saves me listing on eBay
    1.AM prime breakdown
    2.RiD prime bulkhead
    3.encore G1 jazz
    4. Arcee, bee, cliff -as one lot
    5. Lego millennium falcon
    6. Lego shelob set (minus the mini figs)
    7. Kre-o sets (minus minifigs) I have ratchet, prowl, sideswipe, bee, sentinal, megatron, jazz, mirage, basic bee

    Been looking at Kapow and I think Andy has some subliminal messages hidden in the site as now I'm tempted to buy AM Darkness Megatron, AM Car Vehicon (even though I have the Hasbro version), AM-W01 Grab, AM-W02 Bal, AM-W03 Dai and AM Swerve/AM Breakdown.

    Been to Asda in Edinburgh today and they didn't have them out.

    AM-W01-3 are excellent, Darkness Megatron is almost too tempting though I'm trying to resist, I have enough Vehicons and AM Breakdown is excellent. I've actually ordered AM-W07-9 too as it just seems wrong getting one but not the other.

    On that note, anyone have any spare Prime Microns they don't want? ;)
