    Now that an extreme toy hunt...

    Finally nabbed FoC prime (at retail, no less. Feels odd!), and I take back everything bad I said about the figure when we first started seeing pics. Yes, he's small, but lots of fun. And he looks great holding RTS primes sword. I also grabbed Shockwave. I'm still not that interested in him, but we'll see what happens when I open him later.

    If you want Vehicons and don't mind paying slightly more you could just get a couple of Arms Micron ones from Kapow, they're £25 eacha t the moment which is quite a good price for them.

    Which one of you silly bastards was in North Ealing this morning?

    There I was, running the first ever Ealing Half Marathon with my wife when we pass a stereo speaker system fixed in to a wheeled cart, painted purple with a Decepticon logo on it and an image of Beastbox on the side. Playing naff and inspirational music to the runners.

    Aw yeah.

    I have no words to explain my complete 'awe' of how amazing that looks, surly no one else has an mp seeker collection that big,
    Dude i must come round one day and play, i would also hate to think how much this lot costs, but if you ever are in need of a couple of grand im sure these would help,
    i still do want your cone heads (hmmm must find out where you live and must also buy a grappling hook)

    Im sure there was another reprint and its the purple one, might of been i-gears but i have seen pics of it before,

    2 quick questions if i may,
    1.. Does anyone have a mp rodimus takara BOX and plastic insert they would like to sell to me, please as i collect the boxes aswell (and not for resell purpose)
    2... How much should it cost to buy the lego avengers hellicarrier breakout set, its the one with hulk, thor , hawkeye and loki,

    I dont suppose anybody is looking for an RID Omega Prime? Because I have one that I want to get rid of. Optimus is 100% complete, Magnus is missing the white missiles. I only have Optimus's instruction sheet. I also have the RID Megatron form the same series for sale, he's complete but has no instructions. They 'll be going up on ebay otherwise.

    Anyone watched the new turtles yet? Saw an advert on tele for it today and it starts on nickleodeon tomorrow i think

    Watched the first 5 mins earlier and kept thinking that donatello sounds like the original rapheal. A quick look at IMDB and it is!

    After watching avengers in 3D im gonna go through little avengers fad, nothing fancy, just getting the crew in lego form,
    Well surprised to see blackwidow sells for around 20sheets, i guess its cause you can only get her through the expensive jet thing set,
    Personally don't think lego should pay god like this,
    And im surprised i want her the most, and i don't know why but must have

    Just the adverts, they look pretty smart but downside is my son keeps karate-kicking things across the room, so we may have to skip them :)  Has got me digging out my old graphic novels which is no bad thing.

    Blatant plug but I'm selling my PP05 accessories from both Ratchet and Ironhide on eBay (apologies if this is not the place to mention it).

    If by "pay god" you mean "play god" then I have to disagree. Not only does that require a visit from the hyperbole police, but it's perfect marketing. If I was wearing a cap, I'd doff it in the direction of Lego's marketing department.

    I wanted em all (well the four main heros) in mega bloks form but tracking down a hulk is nearly impossible seen as though he was only available in sets ages ago when the last hulk film was out :(

    The Hulk figure is bloody awesome - some friends from here got me one as part of my wedding present - he's currently holding Loki upside-down.

    Got it by other sources the other day watched the first 2 eps and it's not bad but it's nothing like the original comics April is a teen but my 11 year old found it very funny.
