    Were you in and they just haven't tried or were you out and they haven't tried?

    Can't make out from that if they have tried 2x now and/or you have provided details of a safe place etc.

    Some retailers are not allowing hermes to leave parcels now.

    I paid for next day delivery with my bargainmax order and hermes did indeed delivery next day.

    Our hermes team have been pretty good round here so far too.

    Also female drivers.

    Upgrade kit for Sunstreaker, Slag (currently absent), a very nice new sword for Grimlock and some kind of marvelous halo man as a freebie.

    Well done everyone for taking part, to @w00dimusPr1me for winning, for @MyTea Boc for his donation and of course @LorDZeeD for organising and donating prizes!

    PMd with tentacles crossed for Seacons :S

    That's the best I've seen him look, BUT, the slits in the cape make it look really crappy.

    If it goes on sale, maybe, but I don't think I'll bother.

    Draculus is indeed BLEH! The de-headmastering has decapitated my angle of interest, and all the best puns have already been done, which bites - though in this case I won't!
    Not even for "soft goods" (which BTW sounds like a really creepy euphemism for stuff like fleshlights, 1:1 *Ahem* "Companion" Dolls, etc. "Soft Goods? Aisle 3 next to Miscellaneous Vibrators.")!
    Also no Titan Mastery means there's no opportunity for "Bela Lugosi's Head" puns!

    BOO-URNS, Hasbro!
    Is that it for Walmart's Geek Out? If so then this is almost as disappointing as a TF Fan Friday!

    Did anyone who ordered road rage via IDT get a shipping notice for it?
    Very weird to buy something and then 20 mins later get an email saying it's been shipped...

    They did say it was due very soon :p  fastest I’ve had anything from those guys anyway. Kapow still holds the record with my Gen Selects Super Megatron. Ordered on a Sunday night I had it in hand by Wednesday morning using regular 2-3 day postage.

    Hold the phone Barry, how'd you get hold of a colour prototype of the new Victory Leo? ;) 

    In other news Pulse UK have managed to actually ship me one of my preorders!

    The Ark's arrived just in time for the weekend :) 

    Cheers all!

    It was fantastic. 12 years in the comic had no right being this good. Though, to be fair, this was pro the final high tide mark.

    Legends, all three of you. Amazing work!

    I slipped the guy on the front door a fiver and promised I’d have round for homemade chips and deep fried pizza.

    Victory! Size of this dope!

    Hey Teacher! Leave those Gundams alone! :confused2 

    Why do I get the feeling the New SS isn't going to look that visually impressive?

    All the regular delivery folks for me are nice. With the exception of parcel force guy. Who keeps leaving stuff at our neighbours down the road.

    All credit to your good self and @w00dimusPr1me !

    I'd the honour of owning these guys about 10 years ago. Although saber lacked his jet hilt and blade. And Leo had zero weapons. But the size of them was impressive. He looks so good tooled up.

    Also I was able to track down a ko saber and use its hilt n saber.

    There's no denying the presence of the G1 though. Nothing is gonna beat that.
