    I'm just hoping everything is really early production samples (the numbers there) because they really don't impress me.

    *grumble grumble* Stupid Amazon exclusives. Of course the Coneheads are exclusives, they're the only ones that were announced that I actually want.

    Typical :lol

    “How come you’re never an exclusive and I’ve been forced to be twice in a row?“

    “I was Botcon exclusive and for years that was the only way for my release”

    “Shut up TC you see retail more than me”

    STARSCREAM: "They'll make me an exclusive over my cold, dead body!!!"

    TC: "That's what we all figured."

    STARSCREAM:"WHAT!?!"

    TC: "Sorry I thought you said "of"."

    If I may be so bold as to derail the thread(!)....this.

    I have to have an annual physical and medical with work to stay in license to operate the heavy bits of kit we have, thing is at the age of 30 and 13yrs experience I still have to do same test as the 25yr olds.

    Sugar is by far the emptiest thing you can stick in your diet, that’s not to say you can’t treat yourself, but stop and think before you reach for the biscuit tin..!

    I'm drawing the line at Coneheads, they won't get done any other way now so I can suck up the ER Seeker for them, but none of the others, I just don't like it enough.

    Tetrajet Sunstorm of GTFO. No, You GTFO!!

    Wheels up on Doubledealer so maybe by Thurs after all.

    Snapdragon when?

    Dark Energon. I think it's the only other use of the mould?

    Dang, Kev. You always bring the good shit.
    Oh shit, I'm going to end up getting one aren't I?

    Hey, at least Skywarp got into RID. Poor old TC had no such luck.

    Amazon prime arrived from the US in 4 days with slow shipping!

    Then the seekers arrive with a huge hole in the box... Luckily I am not keeping the box otherwise I would be annoyed.

    Metal boots on the ground for Decepticon reinforcements at the Robo household. I was wrong about the ER seeker mold, I think Starscreams grey over white was the major put off but Skywarp is the true star of the 3 this time around imo. I can’t put my finger on whether his paint is different to Thundercracker and Starscream. Theirs feels glossy but Skywarps feels almost chalky like a matte style. Love it.

    Just want Sunstorm and Bitstream in the Netflix line as Tetra jets and then once Thrust is up for preorder I’m done with Decepticon Jets I think.

    Maybe could be tempted by an F-15 Nacelle or Slipstream in Gen Selects.

    I'll do a mini review later, but I love the look already.

    Wow, so tempted by those ER seekers. Good thing they're hard to get hold of I suppose. Then I stop to consider just how many times I've been lured into buying all three seekers (and sometimes 6) to complete the set... G1, Robotmasters, first set of MP jets (I LOVE the plain deco rather then the usual faction-emblazoned wings), Armada, Cyberton (even though Starscream didn't share a mold with the others), CHUG Deluxes and Legends... flipping heck. The only times I don't have the full set are for Animated (no Thundercracker at the same scale), the MP-11 mold (Starscream only) and the MMC Hearts of Steel version of Thundercracker.

    Let's be fair - mold reuse is a brilliant trick when it comes to getting the most out of a design, but it doesn't breed good habits! If they're going to make us crave completing a team, give me a team with different designs in anytime - eg Insecticons, Dinobots, any of the gestalt teams - at least I don't feel like I'm only doing it because 'they have to be together'!

    Opened Scorponok at the weekend. Astonishing.

    so got my shipping notification for Doubledealer (Told myself I wasn’t getting it, I lied) courtesy of the fine people over at comics and cocktails so should have that midweek I reckon.

    Seeing all these ER seeker two packs landing and mine hasn’t moved on from “processing” over at ID Toys. Anyone still waiting on theirs from ID?
