    I've got to give some Kudos to Smyths and their free delivery option. I ordered ER Sunstreaker and Trailbreaker yesterday at 10am and was advised of delivery by the 30th. So for them to turn up today...... thats some seriously good service right there. Oh and Yodel should get some of that too as they did the leg work. :thumb

    If we're talking about the T30 one yeah I agree, not a big fan myself and yeah he must be a nightmare to get but, erf, I need a stupid Gears snif. MT is tempting, thank you.
    C'mon Hasbro, I know you'll do it, give us a new Gears/Swerve.

    That being said, T30 swerve is still one of my all time favorite.

    Naw, afraid not! Mum used to work for Empire stores so we ended up in a lot of random ex-catalogue shoot staff discounted sartorial elegance such as a (massively too big) Joe Bloggs T-shirt, and a number of eye-offending shell suits, among other things.

    Agreed!Have to say Yodel & My Hermes (in particular local lass Sandra) have been vast outliers from both companies' prior reps thus far too!

    Pretty much, yes. Once we start seeing it as just plastic, it's much easier. Especially for the money that some plastic commands for characters who were animated for a grand total of 2 or so seasons 30+ years ago, no less.

    Ha, you'd think so but I can't seem to shift the Aerialbots for a while or heck, even the Stunticons some time ago. Hopefully Thomas will be easier...

    I’ve never posted art here before, but on a notion I decided to draw Trailbreaker. I got into art again a few months ago, and have been drawing with my finger on a phone app since. The general silhouette was traced from a photo I took of my ER Trailbreaker, but 80% of it is non-cheaty!

    Thomas will fly. You can probably find Stunticon buyers in the thread here, I see people looking for reissue news... Aerialbots less so!

    I’d be all over Thomas but you’d get more money selling at the bastard prices he’s currently going for with flippers :’-(

    Yeah. At a sensible price I’d have your hand off.

    Rewatching generation 1 with the wee one. We've flown through season 1 and just watched enter the Nightbird.

    He's loving it but I must say I'm finding some of this first section of season 2 (which feels more like a seasons 1.5 seen as its mostly just the s1 characters ) hard going. Except for changing gears, love that one. I'd actually totally blanked out Autobots attack and traitor, surprisingly so with traitor as that was quite an interesting premise and cool play around with mirage's character.
