    Here we see a robot riding a dinosaur, underwater. While a brave guardian regards life with serene gaze.

    New info about how the Magic Square Stunticons are being released has dropped,

    3 sets,

    Motormaster & trailer
    Breakdown & Dead End
    Dragstrip & Wildrider

    No colour prototypes or packaged images yet so I'd imagine it's still some way off.

    Yeah, will be interesting to look back in a few years and see how the 3P/hasbro 'relationship' has changed.

    Super good point on the road map front! Guess the same applies to power rangers - his touch not likely to be felt for a while. Hm, poor metaphor.

    I dabbled a bit during the 'Thrilling 30', but Combiner Wars was what really got me back into the hobby. So thank you, John Warden. You wallet-emptying bastard:lol

    Depending on how Kingdom goes, Siege stands as not only my favourite TF line of JW's tenure, it's also my favourite TF toyline of all time.

    For me it's been uphill all the way since T30 Springer showed just what could be done, and after the slough of WFC1 I basically couldn't be happier. Well I could, but it would be churlish to even mention how.

    And whatever is revealed today........it's going to have to be planet-bursting to top this:

    Now THAT'S a Titan.

    Much appreciated! Think I ordered it with Amazon Germany way back when (?) but I just ordered 2 sets here and can always sell the other set!

    Btw, the wishlisting was how I secured Dead Space Dad, shipped this morning! Thanks again!

    My favourite TF toyline is Combiner Wars (when Generations became SUPER exciting and it was clear all bets were off!) followed by Titans Return, Siege/Earthrise, Beast Wars Neo, Cybertron...and POTP floating around there somewhere....but I'll always have a soft spot for FOC, PRID, and DOTM, as that's where it was at when I came in. :) :cool: :D 

    And I do love me a Bayformer....:eek: :rolleyes: ;)

    that
    Amazing isn't it?
    At the grand young age of 46 I have an area of shelves to put my stuff on, with the added irony that if my wife is on a video call my TFs are her background by default, snigger.

    My son asked me if he could put some of his FNAF and Bendy and the ink machine stuff in so I gave him a small shelf, good validation to the theory but darn he beat me to it by 36 years!!!

    I messaged Wish that they can cancel the refund on my now-here OS KO Dinos, but not sure that the 'comments' field is run by a being of flesh and bone....

    That judge set is amazing, I can actually hear ID and Kapow (for we love them both), fighting over the exclusive rights to that one coming into the country if it does....

    I bought a disco-coloured Bee one-step at the ickle boot this morning.....I can't figure out how to transform it though....
    proud I is not.

    Laters.

    Top bloke, cheers :)  I’m still undecided because I quite fancy the idea of my Siege Datsuns being the same model but built for different purposes in my head canon.

    Smokescreen is a next generation NASCAR prototype.
    Prowl is a prototype interceptor made by the same fake company for the police district.
    Bluestreak is a concept production car from the same design.

    Love this hobby :rolleyes:

    The WFC Trilogy as a whole looks like it is a Magnum Opus of a toyline, I have sympathy for whoever takes the reins next because WHAT a flippin' bar to clear he has set!

    Just Cheked my Amazon US orders for the Pre-Order and noticed my Phase 2 of MMS are DELIVERED?! Better check that post box!
