    What I have to say to Erector, I say to you as well. And shake my fist at you!

    :p 

    Wish I had done the custom class that year.

    I'll need to get some then. Looking forward to setting him up.

    I hate you.


    :p 

    Fantastic!

    Alternative Spike Headmaster component? I can wish.

    Excellent!
    Looking forward to completing Superion.

    :lol 

    Ohh nice. I regret on passing on the first set of tapes when they were released. Saw a set in Orbital London when I was down in August and was tempted even though I have all the original tapes.

    That reminds me I still need to sort my Onslaught with the Headrobots set for a Classic Fort Max.

    Arkham Asylum looks great.
    And I think pics of the Rancor Pit have been seen. It adds onto Jabbas Palace.

    There was a new animated Lego Star Wars special, similar to The Padawan Menace, on in America last week called The Empire Strikes Out. I enjoyed it. Hopefully be out here to buy around Christmas time. Nephews love the previous one.

    Cheers for the FM/Detolf query replies fellas, I was just making sure that it would fit on top of the case without parts hanging off, had no idea the mahoosive mutha would actually fit inside one!

    Been meaning to Get one for years, it's probably about time, just waiting on Tuesday for my next pay date. :D

    Cheers for the links. it is too easy to get suckied in to lego.

    I got the Millenium Falcon a couple of weeks ago, really great set then the lego bug hit me so I bought the most recent Slave 1, not as good as the Falcon but still utterlt superb. I personally think that slave 1 and the millenium falcon should be in every lego star wars collection. My only gripe with Slave 1 is toy cant display it in flight mode you can only display it in landing mode, essentially on it back. I eventually made myself a stand to display Slave 1 in filght mode.
    The desert skiff set is a good set too, found that one is tesco on sale and you can never have too many boba fett's.
    I'm currently after Darth Vader TIE advanced set. I'm really only after the iconicsets from the films.

    Instead of placing my preorder for fort max I have bought another two components of Hercules (God damn you Andy for having Exgraver and Heavy Labor for such good prices.)

    Because of them I think I am done with main line transformers for a while, I've got the G2 combaticons ordered and I'll pick up Masterpiece Optimus but following getting AM Breakdown with two right feet I am less than impressed at the moment, especially wiht distribution.

    Has anyone contacted Takara asking for replacement parts before and managed to get said part? It wouldn't be so bad if the feet weren't angled, it's doing my OCD in!

    Actually, I have a mate in Japan at the moment :D  I could just ask him but I need addresses etc.

    You made the right choice, imo.


    Breakdown...MAYBE if your mate contacts them, but even with a Japanese shipping address, i think they're just going to tell you go talk to the vendor.

    Not easy when you're half way across the world though that's the problem.

    All else fails I could just get said mate to pick me a second one up for JP retail it should work out a lot cheaper than the £40 I paid for the first. maybe see if he could pick me up a second jet vehicon.

    Really am loving Exgraver and heavy Labor, Breakdown is kind of cool but next to the lime green bots. I'm far more excited about Hercules than I thought I would be, I'm not even a big Devestator fan, Defensor and Bruticus were my favourites.

    Only now have I decided that FP Flameblast actually looks really cool (clearly, ahead of the curve as ever!). Does anyone know what kind of prices this guy goes for these days? If he is too expensive then I will just move on.

    Tfsource apparently have i gears brawn and cosmos in stock ready to ship, plus dragongames83 on ebay (I've used them before and there a good seller)
    So finally it can't be long now,
    I am tempted to just buy the mp coneheads seperatly, buy one every other month or something,
    A seller from Italy has them for around 125 each,
    I know sending to Italy seems to be a no no, but what about buying from Italy?

    Stupid tablet,

    I will say that trying to download apps for the samsung galaxy seems such a chore,
    A mate gave me his pass code for sky go, so i could watch skysports on my tab, but the skygo app only works on i pads,

    Wasp - are you aware rather than editing a double post you can just delete that post? And also I got my notification from tfsource this morning so mine should be here in around a week! Looking forward to these guys. No pack in details about future releases though.

    Don't like not having an ankle tilt and he feels cheaper than the MP-03 mould and it's a shame the silver parts are just grey plastic and not painted I like him and I now have the 3 main seekers but I still prefer the MP-03 mould.

    This thread is dangerous. This morning, FP stuff was nowhere near my mind. Within hours, I am hovering over the 'buy' button for him. But, that's still £40 + import tax (which would be about £15) for basically a Scout figure (even if he is cool).

    I think that this is one I will need to sleep on. Thanks.
