    Personally I'd go for comic accurate, as Marvel UK is "my Transformers".
    That being said, with that purple head crest, Selects Galvy isn't going to be 100% accurate to either source, so just go with what looks best to you, pick & mix the stickers for most pleasing aesthetic maybe?

    Too true bud.

    It's worth dropping them a Facebook message or subscribing to the mailing list btw as they regularly give out codes for a further 10% off :cool:

    Getting tempted by the cheap X-Pants, though really have no home for it...

    Man I feel this so much. I've come to realise fighting about it doesn't actually change anything so i just have a rant (to not her) and move on!

    My vote goes to Selects Galvatron. The purple on the normal release is crayons-for-lunch levels of wrong. I ended up keeping legends Galvatron because of how well its purple goes with Kingdom Cyclonus and Scourge.

    Cheers for the recommendations! :) 

    The next Legends wave has a figure I want in it (Jake Roberts in blue tights with the cobra) so I think I'll send 'em a message to see if they'll be able to get that.

    The Crüe served me well until Titans Return happened, though they did need a bit of tightening up with additional friction at the hip mushroom pegs, and another joint of two to my memory.
    Losing those hammers was what hurt the most on my parting with them. Gorgeous bit of weapon design, if a little worrying on the handle components' size front. I still miss them.
    You read my tiny mind!
    Too right! And where's the Purple Griffin retool of his Magnificence, eh, Hasbro?
    Look, you can call it GRYFF-1 and lock in that copyright, I've basically done half the job there, so go on, chop, chop, old son!
    We all want Sky Lynxenfurter!
    If it's a small robot head with a lightening bolt that sez "Toy Connections", then yes!

    Hasbro wonders if they own it.

    They are both much bigger than I expected. The Ravage is sweet and maybe we’ll get other core class cassette minions later next year.

    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!
