    Does anyone know of a good place to buy Newage figures from? I've looked at omegalock, tfsafari, and eBay. I know I can probably find them on AliExpress but wondered if there were any other good places to look.

    after getting Armada tidal wave, i realised that older lines are just more my bag. i have memories associated with WFC stuff- were it not for that, id probably sell half of it.
    almost certainly yes, from what ive heard. not sure if the original source was leakers or what.

    how can the one of the most wealthy media companies on earth, who made billions off of 2D animation, make a show this visually uninteresting?

    Cyberverse Dinobots look awesome!
    Are they here in the UK yet or did you have to import them?

    Can't disagree with that! :D 

    @Dead Biscuit,
    I've got my last 4-5 Newage figures from Show Z Store, the most recent one being the metallic version of Shockwave.

    @Siege Fan,
    Like MODOK I will be ignoring Hit Monkey because I think resorting to crappy looking animation for those characters is a copout. Live action or GTFO.

    Show-Z have a good selection and reasonable prices, I get most of mine from them.

    I got mine from Amazon US import but BBTS also have them for a comparable price and will likely packae them better.
    I’d suggest waiting for a UK source but the Cyberverse stuff seems especially difficult to get here.

    @Lothar Hex no worries, shoot me a pm please.

    I just tried to have a go at putting Cang Toys Ferocious in arm mode. After 20 mins of wrestling it together I just gave up. Cyberverse one step changers for me please!

    Genuinely surprised you're moving miladdo on! I have to admit, though, that even if I could afford the real thing, I'd still buy the KO. Wish I could take those weathered Dinobots off your hands though mate.

    We're not expecting any Pulsecon TF stuff aside from the Ravage set and Reformatting Galvatron are we? My wallet hopes not.

    With all the news and leaks, there's only 32 OG names left for standard-sized MOTU Origins figures (!). It's no wonder they're pulling off licencing miracles and eeking out vehicles etc.

    Ohhhhh fuck me - someone in the FT Acoustic Wave thread just got their invoice. I'm praying that Kapow get theirs later rather than sooner since that's who I ended up preordering with. :'O(

    Thanks, I'll take a look.

    Thanks for the offer, but I'm trying to limit to mostly season 1 figures (and maybe a few repaints) to bolster the Kingdom core class. I've got manero (jazz) and am tempted by prowl, Porsche shockwave, barricade/roadblock and possibly the toy version of soundwave.

    The Newage Nissan mould is great, I've got silver and blue Bluestreak and Barricade and they're all very nice!

    I also have toy colours Soundwave who's a bit good as well, he also has my favourite Legends scale figure of Ravage as whilst the Magic Square one had more articulation it actually worked against it and is a pain in the butt to get in a decent stance.

    Anyone have a junker BW primal? I'm loving the reissue one, but his left arm's bicep-ratchet-locking piece is broken, so no matter which position the slider is at, his left arm spins at the bicep.

    The bicep is meant to lock in for the chest beating gimmick, but the tab either snapped off or wasn't filled in by plastic while the part was being molded.
    Working right arm:

    Broken left arm (notice the tab doesn't stick out as far):
    20211017_231436.jpg

    I've taken him apart and know which piece is broken. If anyone has a primal they're willing to take apart, I'd pay for the part.

    I have a complete RiD Fireman Optimus Prime and for so long I wanted the Magnus to combine him with, but it was not to be. Prime now stands at the back of my Op Prime collection, thinking about the.. simpler times! ;)

    I have a RID Magnus (missing his missiles) if you want to finally feel the might of Omega Prime. PM me.
