    Cheers for the Win8 feedback fellas, 7 has done me no wrong and is lightning quick with a ssd so I may just stick to that. Like suggested it's probably best to demo it in currys or summat.

    I'd still say Kapow as you won't have to pay import duty and it hasn't got as far to travel so less risk of damage.

    lol with a small Unicron head hanging off it!

    I'm selling it cheaps ;) 

    Totally forgot to reply last night. I can only find black ones if that's any good? Could coat a black one and your white one with the same paint so they match? Let me know if that's any good for you.

    I get that Kapow's price is an import price and that is the price needed to make a living and you'll get no arguments from me about it, it's just that extra £10 is a deal breaker for me for a figure that I'd quite like but I'm not desperate for...especially given my track project. Gotta keep that on track.

    I'd love to see The Beast

    *hides*

    Oh, to anyone considering buying anything from the US soon, you might want to bear this in mind. BBC News - Sequester: No deal in sight on automatic US budget cuts
    Interesting economic times are ahead for our friends over there.

    EDIT: I know that the Dudicus craze has come and gone but I finally managed to get a configuration that I'm 100% happy with and here it is:

    +1 for Defensor.

    I just want a Hot Spot that doesn't have a cab for a chest.

    And Groove. A modern Groove would be great.

    Something pretty radical would have to be done with Streetwise and First Aid to make them stand out, though.

    Hmmm, Monstructor?

    not a huge amount really, if your looking for things other than standard retail. best bet is Orbital Comics which has a good bit of vintage stuff. What sort of thing are you looking for?

    Forbidden Planet currently has less toys than a tesco express at the moment. I seriously wouldn't bother going there unless you want a FOC Prime or MP Rodimus for £270.

    Hows everyone feeling about this supposed news that the MP Lambo license is in danger? Is it it swinging anyone towards picking up Tigertrack? If they lose this license a western release is surely buggered and prices will start to rocket... Oh sweet speculation...

    LOL

    Bloody Forbidden Planet. I guess I have a soft spot for them as that's where I picked up the first two figures that got me back into figure collecting (Classics Ramjet and Movie Bonecrusher) but some of their prices are absurd. Let me guess, that MP Rodimus is from the first, flawed batch and it's loose right?

    Was a Western release even on the cards? It seems to have been passed over in favour of Soundwave and Acidstorm. I dunno about Tigertrack.....a yellow Countach would be cool but reading between the lines he says it's just for the current LP500's and Sunny is a separate license application.

    TCracker in the speculation thread.
