    Have to agree, a new powermaster prime is at the absolute top of my wish list for classics but this is not it.

    Well you'll see reviews of the trailerforce stuff when it's released. It's as simple as that.

    And smokescreen is out sometime after hasbro/takara have announced its coming?

    It's hardly a crap day. It's just plastic toys. Granted they are wicked toys but plastic non the less.

    On anoter note I pick the keys up to my new house on Wednesday. Getting very nervous about moving such an amount of stuff with me and not wanting to break anything :(

    Good luck bro, just use lots of good cheap bubble wrap and everything should be fine. :thumb

    Yay for new house. As Fort Max says, just use lots of wrapping and packaging and everything should go okay. :thumb

    Predaking is really tempting.
    And we already got a huge dragon Megatron during Beast Wars :p 
    Though I was disappointed at the lack of beast figures for Beast Hunters.

    Hopefully Omega Supreme will be up for international shipping, much like the G2 repaints of the FoC Combaticons

    Twinstrike will be standing in for Sinnertwin on my Classics shelf when he's released.

    Thanks for that. Grabbed a couple of things for my youngest nephews birthday and a FoC Jazz for myself.

    I've been on the fence about cancelling my pre-order for the G2 versions. Though I think I'll keep it. Can always sell them later if I change my mind.

    Wha?

    Booo.... Was hoping you'd be getting the Non-Stunticons so I could order them through Kapow. Disappointing news. Guess it'll be TFSource for me since I got hit by customs when I ordered the G3 Trailer from BBTS recently.

    Strange, I can see Aaron Eckhart saying that to Christian Bale while sitting around a table :p 

    The few times I've ordered from TFSource, I've not been hit by customs. Though I think the last thing I ordered from them was eHobby Twincast

    It really comes down to person preference.
    For me, the individual robots of Hercules look more like Classics versions of the characters though for me they seem to large, while Giant's combined mode looks closer to a Classics version of Devestator, while the individual robots have a bit more artistic licence added to them.
    Personally though, I'm leaning more towards Giant for the two of them, and hopefully I'll be able to get one, one day. Had to cancel my pre-order for Green Giant :(

    I found that absolute funny as hell, how did you do that,

    Sorry to hear court,
    Did he take your i phone as well, or was that a separate issue

    In other news,

    Is this common knowledge or just me being Stupid?
    The 20% toys r us voucher, i always thought you could only use it on one item,
    But turns out its the complete discount on every thing you buy,

    I used it to get a Lego Quinjet, decided to hold off building it until Boxing Day, every year I find myself totally bored so this year there will be something to look forward to!

    Technically not everything, certainly not video games and consoles, baby products, gift cards, etc.

    Predaking is looking really good to me. Did just cancel my G2 Buticus pre order, just couldn't get myself interested enough in them to keep it!

    I used black magic.

    Or so as not to be racist, African American magic.

    Wait, that's probably worse isn't it...

    Sorry to hear that, that's a pretty shit day indeed. Don't want to die though, want to live so you can make life hell for the people who did those things to you.

    Where did your phone get stolen from?


    And for everyone asking about Erector's voodoo -
    Let me google that for you
