    Count yourself lucky. mine had a single cyberverse and single voyager Megatron only for the longest time. Popped in today to find a shelf full of DOTM arks.

    Tempted to pop down into Notts, but wondering what they got down there is worth a trip?

    Wave five has just turned up in my local sains. Just in case there is a sale on weds, I stashed a Dead End and a Kup behind a load of those Sainsbury's exclusive car set things. Non Branded stuff is the last thing to go when those sales hit! I'm an evil genius!

    Excellent tip - cheers! Snap - the Avengers & LOTR ones look really smart - can see a few battles vs my son with them. Nice 1.

    Getting really tempted by the Super GT Alternity....and then saw the 10,000 yen price - problem solved. No longer interested :)

    I had no luck finding cheap DOTM in Home Bargains, well the ones that I wanted, B&M Bargains though had Skyhammer and Rescue Ratchet.

    Ratchet now has Ironfist's head and will be painted over the week I think and Skyhammer. Is actually pretty meh, his helicopter mode is nice but his head is guff, he doesn't have leg swivels at the appropriate place (above the knee)

    Think I might keep him until the head robots kit comes out then I can paint him up to match.

    I think Shadow Command Megatron is seen as quite a bit more scarce though.

    Prime rumble is a neat little dude then, I kind of want to swap the feet over though as, to me at least, they look like they've been put on the wrong way round (I want to have the pointy tips as the heel). Those who own him might know what I mean. I'm pretty sure doing so wont affect the transformation, but getting them off is proving tricky.

    19 and Daddie's still paying for your plastic crack? If that's true, it even sadder. Maybe.

    Trying to find the post but 100% sure that at some point in the last 2 years since you joined, you said you were 13. Hence why a number of people have referred to it previously.

    That's a very valid point. Unless it's an unconventional daddy, but let's not go down that route!!! :lol

    Aww, come on guys, there's been an unusual amount of snarkiness in this thread of late, and it just doesn't suit us. Don't let the attitudes that pervade other corners of the forum infect our bastion of calm, friendly robot love!

    Ah, don't take it too seriously I'm just poking. I don't care either way if you're a strange young lady or a creepy middle aged man, whatever floats your boat.

    Finally managed to swap rumbles feet over, and I think it looks loads better! See attached pics! It doesn't seem to adversely affect his transformation. Sorry, I should have taken a 'before' shot! It's simple enough to do, but use caution, it requires a bit of force to pop them out of the sockets!

    The thing about Rumble is that his alt mode reminds me of Animated Bumblebee (or am I the only one who sees it?) Haven't seen one in the flesh yet though.

    It is a bit animated bee-ish, just a bit less squat. I hated it to begin with, but it actually looks pretty swish (if not a little Max Power ish) with the reprolables set.

    Also, did anyone see this? I reckon I may have to make a purchase if it turns up round here!

    The circle is complete ... Lego rips off Kre-o that ripped off Lego
