    I have but a single Optimus (Toyworld Orion), and didn't get a Dr Strange email. How will I ever be accepted as one of teh TruFanz™? ;) 

    The one thing you can say about Amazon exclusives, is at least we have bloody Amazon in this country!

    Wreckers wrumours: The G2 Leadfoot from Mirage speculation is presumably fuelled by his appearing that way in the new Wreckers comic; I'd be interested for my IDW1 shelf... I'd have thought Titans Return TwinTwist (and Misfire, for that matter) would be obvious candidates for the Retro Headmasters subline, though I can see how the Salt Man redecoes will appeal to some collectors, hey maybe both will happen... wondering if the Bulkhead remould would be Pyro... appeal of Thunderclash from Motormaster depends on how good the new Motormaster is, and whether they'd just leave out the pricey trailer... would prefer Sandstorm to Springer personally as I'm happy with lanky T30 green lad but don't have lanky T30 orange lad... if we're getting weaponisers I'll cross my fingers for Rack&Ruin.

    "Heh... It appears that Sector 7 will be getting it's second robotic unit rather sooner than expected..."

    - The Transformers S04E15: 'Sector 7' (4/5)

    ===

    Optimuses? Despite being a confirmed non-fan of the big red dork, I do still have a few.

    • RID2K1 Optimus Prime
    • Armada Supercon "Bendy" Prime
    • KuBianBao MP10V + Trailer
    • AOE Silver Knight Optimus Prime (I only really wanted the Grimlock it came with)
    • Generations G2 Combat Hero Optimus Prime (moonlighting as G1 Overload)
    • Siege Galaxy Upgrade Optimus Prime (it was going cheap at TK Maxx)
    • Earthrise Alternate Universe "Deadimus" Prime (providing the trailer for Overload)
    • PotP Optimus Primal

    As for Megatrons:

    • RID2K1 Megatron (Gigatron)
    • Energon Megatron
    • TLK Voyager Megatron
    • MMC Tyrannotron (MTMTE Megatron)
    • Generations Selects G2 Megatron
    • Kingdom Beast Megatron

    It irks me that I have more Optimuses than Hot Rods / Rodimuseseses.

    +1 to furai model kit falling apart .. it is possible that this improved in subsequent iterations since my kit was gifted to me before any had gone on general sale

    I have paltry primes compared to you lot .. so I’m including the few that I sold

    g1 power master prime (sold)
    Action master prime
    G2 optimus prime (sold) (the one with the sound box)
    G2 octane prime (sold) (the one with the blue discs)
    G2 optimus prime (sold) (the one with the air pump cannon .. that was an optimus prime right ?)
    MP1 optimus prime
    Furai attack prime
    ER prime

    and want me a nemmy if smyths still have them when I’m back

    If primals count then I have the 3 cartoon based from the original BW line

    Looks to be USA only for now, nothing showing on Sky :( 


    As for Primes, my collection is quite specific (1 bot for 1 character in the G1 cartoon and Beastwars) so this limits me somewhat, however I do have:

    • Earthrise Prime
    • G1 original prime (just missing a hose head)
    • Core class Prime from combiner wars / titans return?
    • MPM-12
    • WeiJiang oversized cell shaded MP-10 KO
    • Ghostbusters MP10 re-deco
    and TE-01 OP Leader is on pre-order with Omegalock

    So, I watched Hawkeye. It was ok. I'm enjoying Tony Dalton's presence very much, but the whole thing does feel a little flat. Fingers crossed it perks up. Suppose I'd better chore Get Back now.

    Oh, and Yodel notice tells me Jackpot is due today. Looking forward to seeing how much of a mess his head is.

    I've had and sold on many many Optimii, in most of the available flavours (G1, classics, CW, TR, movieverse, ER etc), but currently all I have are:

    Siege Optimus (still my favourite)
    Kingdom Core Optimus (he's diddy)
    SSBB Optimus (stunning achievement)
    TLK leader Optimus (was cheap and I really like the samurai kibble).

    Oh, and Kingdom Optimus Primal, if he counts.

    And that really is it. Wow.

    Megatron? Well, let me think...

    Siege Megatron (Netflix deco)
    Kingdom Megatron (Barney)
    Cyberverse Battle Call Megatron (silly)

    As you can tell, I have barely any TFs left after the sales, but I've owned many a Megatron in my time as well. My favourite was probably the original War for Cybertron game one. TLK Voyager was fun too.

    I always thought the live action movies could have taken more inspiration from BT/Alts. Kind of got there in the end with Bee I suppose!
