    Actually, from what I read from the call, (one of) the casting company is in London looking for the two leads for TF4, which they will send to Paramount in the US. While it says that locations vary, I see nothing there that actually says filming in London.

    In addition, character background has a Texas heritage, so how is your US accent? :D

    One can hope that the producers have cottoned on to the fact that people come to see robots fighting, and not the angst ridden lives of puny meatbags.

    It's because it says Robots In Disguise on the box, quite simply. It's quite often used to distinguish between the First Edition Prime and regular Prime releases, but it makes it confusing if you want to discuss the 2001 toyline!

    Thank you for speaking for all of Scotland :lol 

    Like CyberShadow said - No! If you want Arms Micron stuff, you'll have to import it yourself of buy from a UK based importer like Kapow, Robot Recruits, Toyz and Gamez or other places.

    I might apply for the male lead in TF4, I'd best polish up my impression of Hank Hill/ Bill Hicks.

    Interesting stuff about TF4 having London as one of its shooting locations, hopefully it'll create some decent jobs for potential extras :thumb s

    Let's hope Transformers 4 will have more robots and charaterisation :Lol
    Anyone see the new Lego sets revealed at NYCC? I'm so giddy that we're getting TMNT sets! Have to admit the Bat and Tumbler set looks a tad disappointing but still a must buy.

    For all those who are interested Kapow have the FE's back up for pre-order, voyagers are £30 a pop and deluxes £18-20 :D

    I just call it "Prime Mainline" it's obvious what is meant from that.

    Or yeah, even just Prime. Because half the line now never had first edition toys.

    That's why the acronym should be Prid just to differentiate it from the domestic release of the Car Robots toys.

    If only it had been called Micron Arms in Japan instead of AM. It just makes me think of Action Masters.

    well...it still doesn't say it on the back! + we all know they're Robots In Disguise ever since G1! so do they really need to continue to display that fact on the packaging.
