    Anyone after Kingdom Red Alert - ID Toys have him for £17.99 which given what robot kingdom was charging is a lovely price.

    Yes I do check out my Instagram linked in my profile. As for an MP Primal Size comparison... I think I have one around here somewhere...

    As that somebody who bought RA from Robot Kingdom, all I can say is “You’re Welcome” :D

    Alternatively I’d any version of earth mode prime on sale anywhere at present. The 3 pack one would have been perfect but there was none for home delivery!

    And a fucked log-in attempt was my undoing (not my fault, the usual 'computer says no' with IDT) as there was only one left, but thanks!

    Hopefully our other vendors get him in. I am fucking sick of exclusives :banghead: 

    Oh, look...

    Really hope ID do get a restock of Red Alert. Missed him by about an hour (and I blew this week's toy allowance on Smyths Kingdom discounts).

    This was my concern so I didn't spin the wheel, I would have thought that Hasbro would have more of him left than Space Dad so getting him would be more likely, still a nice price for him though.

    Busy weekend at straining the floorboards even more with my second hand toy hoarding, picked up a job lot of Dino Charge PRs and a Playmobil Police station for my boss on Saturday, then more Playmobil and some bits including a bag of Lego/Kre-o with what looks like the Galvatron set in it - I do like that set, and Kingdom Blurr yesterday (from Retroformers at the boot), however equal amounts are leaving the house so all is fair in love/war and toy collecting.

    Favourite pick-ups would be the Venomised Iron Spider Pop or Optimus Maximus's gun yesterday, nice, or actually the Playmobil, because it is better to give than...you know..

    Thanks to our mutual friend for the company, I would tag him...but I don't know how (told him I was pants at computers).

    Laters.

    I gave up trying that many moons ago :p 

    Tis a fair cop, springers head doesn't exactly glide through that chest panel when transforming does it?

    Is 140 for star Saber alone?
    Also any word if it'll be siege jetfire sized commander class or roddy prime?

    Typical eh?

    And gone before I could even click on. Damn

    I didn’t really mind getting either although I had a strong preference for prime. I did think about buying 2 but the one result I didn’t want was 2 double dealers !!!

    Fucking Mrs. O took so long coming back to me to tell me if my eBay money had hit her account yet that I missed him.

    I'm in a fucking lousy mood today.

    5 off 25 at The Entertainer. The usual rules apply in that they've probably nothing you didn't buy two months ago for cheaper, and they'll email you at five in the morning about one copy of something that'll be gone when you log in. All the stuff in their stores you might want isn't listed online. That free fiver will likely only eat up the delivery charge.

    Really thought I wanted a corrected shoulder galvy. Went smyths, only had the non-corrected type - didn't care. He looks absolutely fine and if I do care down the line, I'll just fix it myself.

    Wow, What I've Done comes on the radio and all of a sudden it feels like 2007 again.

    I've had a REALLY self-indulgent week. Flix Soundwave is on his way, as well as Beast Hunters Ultra Magnus, but for now, here's reformatted Beast Hunters Optimus Prime, getting to grips with Predaking.
    Simple, chunky, but good fun to play with. Absolutely perfect:

    He's a lovely bot and a vastly underrated one at that.

    Same applies here. One of my favourite Prime figures.

    I thought with his feet and hands hanging out like that, I'd be annoyed, but he's REALLY good fun.

    I wish his jetpack was more collapsible and it gets in the way of him delivering and upper-cut to Predaking, but apart from that: love love LOVE him!
