    I'm in the minority not feeling the Max buzz. Had him when I was a kid, and he spent most of his time in city mode as he was just too bloody big to play with. Preferred Metroplex by far.

    Good for those who haven't had/played with him tho I guess.

    Anyone got classics Sunstreaker/Sideswipe they don't want anymore? Junkers are fine as it is the heads I'm after primarily......

    Is anybody interested in the Dream maker WFC kit for Optimus? I have a spare, £25 all in.
    If anyobdy is curiouse to know the kits dont come with instructions so if anybody got one and thought they were missing then dont worry.

    I'll raise my hand in the not-interested-in-Fort-Max gang.

    Cityformers just not my thing.

    Except Skorponok or Trypticon because they were cool - modern iterations that aren't Cityformers would be more attractive.

    So a proper, IDW Fort Max would stoke me more.

    Also, second place in the Pat Sharp Mullet League and I intend to stay there. San Dimas too far out in front already.

    Ive been rock bottom for ages, so need to change things around in it

    I could do with swapping some players around as they all seem to be getting injured

    Here's a question for anyone thats preordered the FP deluxe insectiocns. What with the noticeable absence of Venom in the upcoming insecticons which fiigure would you use as a substitute for Venom?
    I'm leaning towards one of the FOC insecticons at the moment however if Prime Hardshell does get made I may switch to that one, especially if its a voyager. And as a last resort I'll see if I can find some Beast Era figure. Just to be clear I dont own the G1 figure and I dont want him.

    I'm umming and ahing about fortress, but I just remembered how much I liked Headmasters the series and the little Kabaya kit is pretty cool.

    Plus I do have scorponok. I'll just explain it as an investment (goes to preorder with ToyzandGamez)

    I'm only 108 points clear... :D 

    Off work today with a bit of 'flu (wife's orders!) so going to watch the new Red Dwarf episode that I recorded that night, sounds like it's pretty decent. Think I'll watch Cowboys & Aliens too.

    Also, I have a MISB ROTF Bruticus Maximus that I've been holding on to for a while in the hope that Fansproject would re-release Munitioner and Explorer, but now that they've been confirmed I don't know if I want it any more... (typical eh?) I was thinking about putting some stuff up for sale anyway. Not sure what to do, is the FP combined Colossus really that good?
