    If they were to do Overlord now though then he'd end up having hollow pieces and being voyager sized. I'd rather see the original reissued for £170. That sounds about right and would be fantastic

    Ha, i love that little back and forth, brilliant,

    Erector - how much you asking for target 2006, is the titains edition the same as the g1 UK comic,


    Dude you must buy if he gets reissued,
    I hate, hate the thought of selling and regretting, especially one from your childhood,
    I remember selling my G1 snarl on ebay and i totally wished i didn't,
    I ended up speaking the buyer and asked him if i could buy him back,
    The response i got was "yes but double the price" i wasn't gonna be held to ransom, so my heart still stays broken:( 

    In other news,
    Man oh man i need me some i-gear coneheads
    So far no reply to my want thread,
    My only other option is an ebay seller has all 3 together for around 300sheets,
    Its a good price i know, but i don't know if i can drop that sort if money,
    Also there is no way i could escape a custom charge, (can you imagine the size of the box with these 3 badboys in it)
    Im now a dirge fanboy, just love the way the masterpiece figure looks, all blue with umm bits of yellow...
    Great,

    Honestly, given the fact that these retailed around that price (mine came in at $430 shipped on the pre-order discount - I ordered the very day that they became available), and the fact that they are no longer made or available, I dont think that you will find them for much less than the £312 on eBay, and I dont think that they will be any cheaper in the future.

    If I had the cash, I would probably pick up a second set at that price and be happier than if I had ordered Fort Max (but, thats just me).

    Just look at it as 100 a piece. Would you do it then separately? If so and you can afford to drop 300 on all three at once then I'd do it. Especially if your really pining for 'em.

    I think I would be more excited for an Encore Trypticon than Max. Dinos are cool =P

    Nellie I will pm you soon tonight.

    Wasp you missed out! I got all 3 coneheads a few months back from an eBay seller in the Philippines. Even missed customs. Worked out about £80 each I think. I even had a spare Ramjet I sold. Sorry mate. They do seem to have dropped off now.
    I believe TFSource are still listing them for sale

    Trypticon has been doing the rumour rounds for about three years, I heard it from a very good source way back.
    But then again, very good sources reported the Dinobots for the Takara reissue books, and look what happened there. I treat encores thusly: when Takara announce it, I believe it.

    How wide is Fort Max, will it fit on a detolf? I have 26" of clear space in height above it currently occupied by boxes so I reckon if it can go on there then I'll buy one.

    Does anybody have a comparison shot of MP10 with classics voyager Optimus? I'm contemplating getting MP10 and using him as my classics Optimus.

    I'll be listing some new stuiff on ebay on monday but if anybody is interested in a list give me pm and I'll do a deal before they go on ebay. I have some G1, some animated, some 3rd party and two customs going up for sale. I also have an Independence Day alien attacker ship for sale.

    MP-10 would be way too big for a Classics Prime. Faith Leader is about the right size. Closer anyway

    Courtesy of Tarrn and Brooticus, my Prime collection (sans two Vehicons I'm unsure about) is completed!

    Left to right (for bragging purposes): Wheeljack, Arcee, Bulkhead, Bumblebee, Cliffjumper, Ratchet, Ultra Magnus, Optimus Prime (Tokyo Toy Show 2012), Megatron, Dreadwing, Starscream, Knock Out, Breakdown and Soundwave.

    I am a happy bunny and a half.
