    I've got orders with zavvi and Amazon. No sign of either though :( 

    If by some magic they turn up I'll put one on here.

    In other news, my eldest just reminded me that superted was a thing, and it used to be pretty big back in the day...

    IDT/Kapow usually get Takara but the usual 5 minute window applies...

    Rejecticons are YouTubers who are mostly into Hasbro toys, so Kato, Larkin's Lair, etc.

    I shouldn't like such a superfluous bit of kit so much, but on top of ALL OF THE EVERYTHING ELSE, this little bit of back feels like that final flourish of flair. I'm a proper nobhead, me.

    Only downside is the lack of 5mm port on there, but it's detachable so.. eh.

    Can anyone point me in the direction of someone that sells suitable size postage boxes for Takara Legends sized boxed figures?

    Good morning N,

    Like you, I got this part to complete the figure and I agree it does that really well. I’m pleased to have got it.

    For anyone considering this part, you won’t be disappointed. Napalm’s photos help to show how good it is.

    Locker Toys would be your best bet, but I don't know if they ship to the UK though! Probably do but check just in case.

    I also have this part and it does feel like a perfect finishing touch to the figure. The fact it transforms really makes it feel like a proper product. Small part, but very effective as that gap in truck mode annoyed me way more than it should have. I keep meaning to order the nonnef kit for the trailer, but every time I go to gworks and put it in the cart, I'm looking at the price and thinking "That's the price of a voyager figure." I just can't bring myself to purchase once that thought sets in.

    I have the KBB MP10v trailer. When I look at EROP’s trailer I cannot help thinking how lacking it is. Even the original G1 OP trailer was better quality than EROPs trailer.

    Like you, I look at the Nonnef trailer kit thinking it will help improve the trailer but the price irks me and I also swerve pressing ahead with it. This expression comes to mind for me:

    Is that Sebastian the Flute, playing Sharkticon (his new instrument or single), or Sebastian the Sharkticon playing the flute? o_O 

    You need to play on shared letters, so it's gotta be PLAAANE NOT CAAAR, or something :p

    Hahahahaha!!!!

    How does mp10v trailer look on er prime? I'm guessing it doesn't hitch but does it at least look like it does? Sit flat, good size, and so on?

    Hold on, what exactly is this YouTube drama thing? I’m a bit confused. They made a YouTube cabal against leaked figures, but some of them have spoken about leaks in the past...?

    This is an awesome, list - thanks! My Hot Flame arrived yesterday and i just spotted the Nautica tease on the instructions - well excited for that. Hot Flame is mega squeaky though, never had that issue before it can grate!

    You know, i was quite happy with the CHUG Swerve, but these eBay things are selling way better than i expected so i may end up upgrading!

    AAAAHHH - I love all these pictures! Do you post these on IG or anything? I wasn't going to pick up MT Tailgate as i was alright with the Habro, but you've tempted me now. The only fig i don;t recognize is Nightbeat with the yellow chest - is that an upgrade or a new figure?

    So Max has jumped to near the top of the list - though the additional expense of an upgrade kit is putting me off. Is he decent (accurate enough) without it?

    I think you'll find it's pronounced "Scavengers" :) 

    Thanks all, we've got an awesome list going! Quick question - has anyone picked up MMC's Roller or Thunderclash? those are two more i'm thinking of

    You've always needed a Meatloaf figure. We all do.

    @MyTea Boc I'd do anything for a Meat Loaf figure. But I won't do that.

    Good morning folks!

    Telly is on in the background, found Transformers Cyberverse on POP! Looks fun actually but I would still have preferred a TF Prime 2 TBH. ;) 

    Also received email notification from C&C for the TF Prime 2 pack, glad I paid in full - Huzzah! :p 

    Taking a page out of @Large's book, I watched TF The Last Knight err.. last night. It was alright. :rolleyes: 

    I see Borat is trending, with Trump's ex-lawyer dismissing his activity linked to the new movie. LOL! Apparently its out tomorrow on Amazon Prime Video - with that and Star Trek Discovery that's my Friday night sorted.

    Ooh there's new Stand Up To Cancer on too - all good stuff. :D

    Hey thank you friend, that's sweet of you to say that. I don't post things anywhere else than here (ok the Tailgate ones I did tweet them back in the days of new MTMTE/LL issues release day), and anyway unfortunatly I don't shoot my toys really much these days, compared to 2016-2018...
    But yeah Tailgate is awesome and you'd have a blast with him and indeed this is an upgrade for the T30 Nightbeat, making him really swell !

    One of my bigger rock regrets was getting tickets for Meatloaf and a Feeder concert and not realizing they were both on the same night. Silly younger me opted to go to Feeder. Haven't had the chance to see Meatloaf since then. Yet seen Feeder a good 4-5 times since.

    I keep telling myself the new borat movie will be shite, but I can't help but be a little excited to see it.

    Althought I do have to confess that my favorite picture of mine is a rare sweat oddity.
