    That Seeker shot is epic! No dispatch notice from ID for mine yet.... :( 

    I got mine here;

    Transformers Takara Generation Selects Seacons Full Set Action Figure Toy

    Hassle free, the owner posts on these very boards I believe, escaped customs and only took 12days to get here.

    Hope that helps :)

    Arcee, Chromia, Scoop and Windblade. With a Pteraxadon thrown in for good measure.

    aha... yep, one of the best deals at BBTS. I just got myself another Scoop for a few bucks, worth every penny. Those Arcee and Chromia are still some of the best, but T30 Windblade aged badly I think...

    You are too kind, the blocking is way off, I believe a real photographer could master and vastly enhance that shot!
    Fings crossed yours get their wheels up soon!
    Honestly, for me they're worth the wait of pretty much the entirety of Generations thus far, and Thank F*** they weren't Rainmaker rates though!

    I am starting to wonder whatta gwan ahn with Kapow and the other Select "Reveal(ed)s", I've been swinging by to check in over the weekend as I probably will pick up at least one more Greasepit to Autobot-ise seeing as this Chapter is likely it for Deluxe Base Bods, and thought I'd bundle 'im with a couple more Ironworks for further industrial expansion (still on the lookout for a spare Grapple grabber if anyone wants to cash in theirs?). Hopefully they're maybe waiting to clear out the dispatch backlog, and they're not being dicked about by Hasbro UK again.

    Having only recently gotten back into collecting the figures it was a way to get Windblade that wasn’t Hideously expensive or a Cyberverse version.
    I’m not a fan of the new Arcee or Chromia mold so these two were a no brainer.
    Scoop was the only double target master I owned as a kid so this is a nostalgic purchase.

    Was wondering the same myself as I kept checking in to see if Greasepit and another couple of items would be available to add to an order I was placing. Keeping with the optimism, aside from the backlog hopefully they're just having a nice relaxed weekend break and not updating the site till Monday.

    Though I decided I was already spending too much and placed my order anyways - looking forward to Sky Lynx and the wave 1 Earthrise deluxes. :D

    I'll remember this.

    I won't see you at TFN this year.

    Or next year.

    But I will remember.

    And I will see you.

    Oh yeah it's a great mould, combiner wars gave us some good stuff, it's nice to have some separate figures to pose rather than losing them all to serve as limbs.

    I think combiner wars figures are probably the easiest to customise as well with being so modular and reasonably easy to disassemble.

    Hallelujah!

    Ha! I’m not surprised. I did think people made too much of Warden’s comment that CJ and ‘Bee wouldn’t share a mold. Especially after the Hun-Grr/Silverbolt thing. I imagine it won’t be long before people are crying out that Warden has lie...

    Christ, that was quick.

    Zing! Eagerly ordered from the hotel in Brid. Come on, lad!

    Right! Bit of a damp squib that. I’ll be managing my SDCC expectations accordingly.

    I’m inclined to agree.

    Right! To be fair, I think the fandom group mind does run away with itself with these comments (see any conversation about scale or even -god help us- what’s cannon in WfC). It’s publicity speak, not a solemn vow.

    To quote Whitney, it’s not right but it’s ok. There are things I’m quite stern about voting with my wallet about, such as getting very ‘classic’ takes on characters twice in successive lines, but I’ve made peace with overpriced exclusives.

    Well played, my friend. Kudos!

    Thanks for laying these out so helpfully for me.
    ‘Bee: fine. Nothing outstanding about him apart from perhaps the vehicle mode. Keen to see what he looks like with yer partsforming shield on his back. That could make or break it for me. Interesting to see if he winds up in ER wave 4 or if he doesn’t get a ‘conventional’ release until Kingdom. I’ve not actually watched the stream, but a friend noted that there was some suggestion, possibly strongly implicit, by the stoner presenting that ‘bee wouldn’t be in ER.

    Those are nice photos. Pair of stunners.

    I think those got debunked by the lad that finds all the online listings.


    I was right at the front of that there charge. A useful reminder for everyone who thinks I’m a know it all prick when it comes to speculation (waves to the back row).

    Brid was lovely. It really was psychologically beneficial to get out. Though the train from Hull to Brid was research rich for anyone interested in the ways ‘nudge behaviour’ is fuck all use.

    @barry I'd definitely advise taking it all with a pinch of salt. That being said I don't think the guy can really "debunk" them without providing the listings for the next part of earthrise. I'm sure we will see them soon enough though.

    An awful lot has come true off that first list, 11 out of 16 so close to 70% already, shrapnel and needlenose were in the fan vote and I'd say runabout is gauranteed.
