    I've always hated the feet on the original, it basically stops it being poseable, very happy to have Titan Class Megalo Convoy in my collection as I sold by Galaxy Force version years ago.

    Won’t lie, I think Skywasp amd Ransack are the nicest bots in the set, Ransack improves on Kickback too somehow

    I have the Galaxy Force version in my Legends of Cybertron collection - if he comes with a Legends figure to show the scale, he’s in scale with a Legends figure, which means he’s Legends scale. :) 

    Plus I wanted the metallic version of Galaxy Convoy.

    Anyone still waiting on Tarn from IDT? Seen some have got him, and some have got dispatch emails, but I've had nothing and it's all paid up (and he's ordered alongside SG Soundwave, which is in stock so that's not holding it up..)

    I am shockingly just watching for the first time ever Episode 2 of G1 Cartoon...the animation ranges from absolutel carnage to really quite lovley! Such a mixed bag :lol 

    As a previous Animator I find the random changing of gears from one colour to another an absolute hoot..lol..someone dropped a clanger there!

    Am I red or Blue?

    Its pretty strange that I only now am I finding out more about some the G1 characters I have bought toys of but literally know nothing about. Hopefully it will give me a better knowledge of the history too. I am going to watch a few Eps each day and then do all the others in order :)

    Still no sign of Velocitron Wave 2 but I'll keep an eye out! Found listings for both the gimmick (mainline?) and Studio Series ROTB figures however.

    Hey folks - my wee lad is showing an interest in Pokémon cards (all his pals are trading at school).I have no idea about Pokémon at all. Like nothing.

    Anything I should watch out for/avoid/look at? I don’t even know where to start with what to get him first - like a starter pack from Amazon or grab something second hand from EBay?

    I don’t even understand how the card game works or how to tell real from fake cards.

    Any help appreciated from anyone who knows about such things!

    "We've got your GAME parcel" says EVri. Probably the most exciting and terrifying message at the same time.... :eek:

    Why does "Evri got your package" sound like a demand for ransom?

    Tarn and Leo came!! After having Kultur for so long, this guy feels a bit shrimpy and small. But he is a fine figure. Tarn was shown to be smaller than Megatron, so he's a more chug appropriate scale. If megatron is robo-Stalin, my head Canon is Tarn is robo-putin.

    Articulation is great.

    FIND. KILL. CLEANSE.

    Be aware that the dvds had them in the wrong order. There's a proper episode list so that episodes aren't out of order.

    If that matters, for a 40yr old cartoon, of course!
