    We’ve got a core class Laserbeak coming but it’s DOTM, would have been nice to get a set for this version of Soundwave. Feels wrong just to have one, and it’s not even the original bird boi.

    I wonder if Slammer is narrow so he works better with Generations Metroplex.

    Bit off topic but has anyone used zatu games ( You are being redirected...) before, or have any preferred board game stores? I'm looking for the aliens expansion sets and they seem to be reasonably priced and have all in stock

    I couldn't find Crown Point's supposed 2 for the life of me, if they aren't hidden out of reach behind the upper Sparkless Seeker there may be a discount bin or additional TF shelf bit I just didn't spot?

    That is the Go Better Studios kit, I've got that one and its really good the way it hides the hands. You can get it here:

    Go Better Studio GX-23 GX23 Gap Fillers for WFC Kingdom Huffer Upgrade Kit

    I assume the Road Ranger version will be a straight recolour, but it will be interesting to see if any changes are needed for Pipes / Puffer and their reversed cabs.

    I’ve ordered from them once or twice before. No problems, and they were good prices.

    Well I can also have an extra look at crown point Smyths… I have 5 Masterverse figures I am tempted to return and re-purchase to save a bit of cash!

    Bit disappointed they’ve ruled out a Metroplex 2.0 by saying directly he’s intended to be displayed with the 2013 version.

    You'll find 'em somewhere really obvious now, Sod's Law, innit? I had such a time trying to locate 'em I thought I was misremembering which store had them in stock but when I tried to check on Smyths' website it wouldn't recognise the server of my roaming internet and blocked me from it!
    Clearly none of the Crown Point copies were meant for me! :lol 

    HLJ Black Friday Sale TFs have dropped and are, well, uh, a limited selection, or for very unorthodox tastes!

    Sorry I meant to type Birstall! That's occasionally good for some.
    Fairly easy for me to do the pair in one trip.

    IIRC I think I did see at least one there in amongst a heap of the Netflix Primes that I passed on as Quints was the main objective (and for sure the larger branch might have one or two, muggins said to himself). Good hunting! :thumb

    I know it sounds daft, but that purple crest totally kills any desire to have it. If that figure had his crest match the rest of his helmet, I'd be after it no doubt about that.

    Cheers for the offer. Someone on the facebook group has said he found one for me so no need to go hunting on my account anymore. But it is appreciated.
