    Preordered OP from IDT. Happy with that since missing it first time around.
    Would love Bonecrusher but need it in its original deco

    With all the appalling news, I thought I'd contribute

    DCE5BB36-B8C5-4591-98F1-D633468CA52E.jpeg Bonecrusher has All Hail Megatron on his alt mode, somewhat disguised by numbers, as well as both faction symbols. It’s cool, but it’s so overwhelmingly grey and drab

    Hmm, not sure about the GI Joe Classifieds going Pulse only...if their stock levels and prices are fair then it will be ok...the only reason to go elsewhere is to save a few quid on the cost.

    Downside is less likely to find them in a sale as Pulse seems allergic to them.

    It makes sense as to why they did it, I just hope they dont use this as an excuse to screw us over even more than before

    Pulse do sales fairly frequently, and the Hasbro eBay does them too. So I’d imagine there’s likely to be bargains possible still, just need to see how long till the next one happens….

    I don't think there's any way they'd be able to store adequate stock and likely wouldn't want to because of the warehouse costs. That's on top of just releasing things on a whim meaning you can't budget and shit sells out.

    Also you've to pay postage on top of already inflated prices unless over £50, and the level of service is fucking shocking. I think it's a dumbass move for all concerned if it gets confirmed.

    Does anyone have any type of Siege Ultra Magnus core figure they'd want to get rid of? I'd get another KO Siege Magnus but I really dont want to pay more for a figure I already own just because Aliexpress now has to add a stupid tax onto their items.

    Just picked up my 70 quid Black Zarak from the Silverburn Glasgow Entertainer. Looked like they had one on the shelf if anyone is interested

    Just checking the Smyths website and saw that Blitzwing has been reduced by £15. I still need him, although I have him preordered at Star Action Figures, but in case any one else has missed it… 9E9D11E5-C6BC-4231-A755-9D7AABC8292E.png

    Do we think Smyths might drop the price any further? I still haven’t picked him up yet.

    My bet is there is a floor. Look at Ark 99.99/Rodimus 59.99 - they have been stuck at those discounts for over 6 months and in spite of stock not moving they have just left them at those price points..

    PS tbh, for a massively overengineered Voyager, this is now probably the right price point..

    Soooo, in a search for any possible available custom LEGO printing service I have discovered flatbed UV printers, so if I ever win the Lottery and have £2000-£6000 watch out!

    Er, in the meantime sticky-back vinyl it is!
