    Another win. Absolutely loving these, it’s what Siege should have been rather than future Earth looking trucks and cars.

    Ah, didn't know that, cheers! This'll be my first Combiner, y'see. Not a fucking clue where I'll be shelving him or any others, but life finds a way :D

    Asking on behalf of a friend,

    Is there anybody buying the Behold, Galvatron! set just for the main figure that'd be prepared to sell the bits and bobs for Unicron?

    Hmm, depends, if they are 8-9 inch with Mafex/SHF levels of articulation then thats not an extreme price, its concurrent with the recent Play Arts Kai figures

    I think there is a lot of us in it just for the small figures. No one was biting on my offer of a Galvatron

    I think they're 8 IIRC and I wouldn't say the likenesses are good enough for that money, personally. Plus you can get quarter scale Bats from NECA for around 130.

    If we're talking Menasor I'd guess middle to Q3 of next year. However with shipping as it is anything could happen. I just hope we don't hit a situation where the UK skips a wave and we end up missing a limb!

    Apologies, I will rectify that for any future waves.
    I must admit I'm a bit of an easy mark for the bigger deluxe and BAF toys.

    Cheers all!

    Do you reckon, if they'd been exactly the same films but these designs as earth modes they'd still be dumbass popcorn effluents at best. Possessed of a compelling plot and narrative arc across the whole films would make it less like the whole Scooby Doo franchise turd sandwich. TINO

    Excellent, many thanks! With things that should have been Legacy now Kingdom and the movie getting delayed, it'll certainly get interesting!

    Look at how Brendan has embraced him @Skywarp SCS it's not hard to do if you'd just open your tiny undersized heart....give a space rooster some love at Christmas...

    He'll be a shell of a man after that.

    Hopefully not. Didn't Hasbro UK skip wave 2 of combiner wars - the one with 4 of the five stunitcons? I would hate to see history repeat itself

    Interesting idea splitting the bonnet and windscreen like that. Not seen it before. Wasn't particularly interested in him for the Rodimus Shrine, but the new transformation has me curious now.

    I do wish they're stop with the weapon that can also fit a larger figures 5mm hand port. They're too small, just make them fit these guys and not have the awkward double handle.

    Ultimately, he looks fun, and costs a tenner. I'll pick him up.
