    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.

    No problems on the having it sourced, saves me a trip!
    And I agree on Galvatron's crest. That's the bit that finally made me cancel it.

    Core 'Bee Shockers is neat but the big bulbous eye of the design really doesn't help on the super deformation/chibi front, and is it me or does he look utterly enraged at being in tank mode?

    Just absolutely furious, seething, the sheer self-loathing fury of a tryhard novice yoga parctitioner convinced they're doing it wrong perfectly embodied in a sub-4" transforming action figure.
    Maybe it's because Skywarp keeps humming "Face Down/Ass Up" every time he trundles by?

    Seeing peoples pics of Fire Guts made me take a look at Sixo’s review. Thoroughly impressive.

    I ordered the regular Power Baser God Bomber combo last week and didn’t realise they had space for the Headmaster Juniors to sit in the cab.

    Genuinely can’t wait for it to arrive.

    Can confirm it is appearing and hey I bought something from you the other day! :D 

    I find Autobot Impactor's Autobrand looks purple in most photos. I think it's an optical illusion because of all the surrounding purple. No idea why it'd be the case with Jackpot!:lol 

    Funnily enough the more I see of this guy's altmode the more I like it, heck I think I might prefer it to my Siegewave! It has this great Snowspeeder, skimmer kind of look to it IMO :) 

    They'd probably have to fight Disney's lawyers:

    Yeah :( 

    :lol 
    I'm still puzzled by the Core release :confused: 

    @Insurgent My Gigawatt had a similarly speedy dispatch! :eek: 


    Aww :oops:

    Yes the promo! Don't really get chance to watch much wrestling recently (and try avoid the chat in here too much as it seems to get opinionated!) but it does feel that AEW are making the most of characters that stand out. Lost faith in WWE when they refuse to push Cesaro, despite his talent.

    One arrival from the past week or so…
