    Can confirm exprime is pretty awesome

    Until you realise he combines with the team leaders and then you need to find those as well.

    And then you are halfway through the line and may as well complete the two teams for some mix and match combiner fun.

    It's the trailer from DOTM ultimate Optimus prime - it forms armour for the (missing) Optimus prime figure.

    Always a toy I was curious about. I hear the core robot was pretty good, but the powered up mode just looked odd.

    As @Brooticus asserts, the trailer armour without the Optimus that goes in it, and by the looks of things missing some trailer side wings & the honking great Lights & SFX MAHOOSIVE B.F.G. to boot!

    Had a chance to play with these two and they are good fun. Magnus is a big beefy boy and is so posable.
    Think I might build a background out of Lego at some point, mixing the two hobbies might be a bit fun.

    Is what is says in the listing. However that is hilariously mistransformed. I have a pic of his royal badassness kicking about somewhere. Great toy.

    Meanwhile I learned (or rather got reconfirmed) that there are far too many impatient people who have a hard time reading.

    Snag anything for the stream? I got me a Prime Darksteel. Yey.

    I didn't get Exprime, unfortunately. However I did get Beast Wars 2 Galvatron, whose pink, phallic ridiculousness has been an object of desire for some time. I also grabbed Nitro Zeus and Animated Voyager Bulkhead.

    Stroke of luck, IF Lord Scorpion just appeared on eBay, not the best price but it is on the difficult to track down list so I grabbed it. Will look nice next to the new Magnus.

    The flight stands I usually recommend for (smallish) Transformers items are the black logo ones - they are solid and look pretty cool, work with MFT/Vecma stuff perfectly too. The dirt cheap clear ones are OK for tiny stuff - but they are not very good at staying up - I had one with a Vengence and one with a Batwing on it and they both drooped after a while - they work brilliantly for things like Masterpiece Ratbat though.

    I did consider getting one of those christmas tree looking multi-stands but they are not easy to find - they'd look great covered in decepticon jets though. Multi-stands would be nice for the smaller stuff - I saw someone (maybe on here) do it with Iron Factor seekers and it look really terrific.
    --------

    I hope Soundwave and Optimus actually come into home delivery stock on smyths I'd really like that Soundwave.

    It is 8:36 am on a Sunday and Royal Mail just delivered a Transformer I won on eBay Thursday.

    So yeah. Soundwave Sunday I guess.

    Wow, that's missing everything! I chucked one of these away ages ago and it looked exactly like this.

    Re: VAT on overseas orders.
    I looked up whether Aliexpress charge at the point of sale the other day, which they do. However, this was on an order under the £15 threshold (order total was around £8 Inc shipping) - is that right?

    As far as I know, yes. I'm fairly sure the under £135 vat requirement is for everything under £135. Or rather, I don't recall reading that there's an exception to it, save individual-to-individual stuff.

    SS Dino looks very very nice! Just watched a review on him. The transformation looks like a fun thing to fiddle with, and his vehicle mode while not accurate is actually really very nice!

    Also i just wanna talk about the new Cyberverse toys here, i am PUMPED for Deluxe Cheetor, Ultra Ramjet, Deluxe Slug and Ultra Sludge! Cheetor especially i freaking love cheetor, and loved him in Cyberverse!
