    IIRC, they pinch the transwarp box that Tarantulas built from the Nemesis just before the fireworks, then fit it to the shuttle.

    Cripes! Sorry to hear about that.

    If you use Avast antivirus, there's a feature on it that locks the computer with a password, then if someone types in the wrong answer 3 times, it sends a text alert to your mobile and allows you to remotely lockdown or wipe the hard-drive of the computer. Plus Avast keep a GPS track on it. It's free and well worth getting if you've got a tablet etc.

    Damn man, sorry to hear about the theft stevil, hope they catch the bastards who did it and you get the stuff back undamaged.

    Regarding BW/BM
    With no Predacons running around causing trouble the Maximals could easily have salvaged a lot of the materials needed to create a transwarp drive, especially since both Rhinox and Blackarachnia are technologically gifted for that kind of thing.

    I have set up a topic, since I consider the opening two parter one story it should probably be discussed together.

    However upon second thoughts, I am starting a brand new social group especially for the watch through so there doesn't have to be any middlemaning in order to join in.

    Do I go open public group or do we go invite only?

    Sorry to hear this. I know it's not much consolation with your stuff gone, but the kind of people who do this, their punishment is the life they have to lead. They tend not to come to good ends either.

    The punishment for theft should be far more severe. The mere thought of some scum taking something someone values and has worked for and probs just binning it makes me so angry. Sorry its happened to you i hope it all gets sorted

    Sorry to hear that, what a complete nightmare. They are lowlife. Next door was done last year, and they rifled through all the kids stuff, got away with laptop, blue-ray and more but the saving grace was the police found them and charged them. Hopefully the same will happen for you.

    I don't come here for 36 hours and there's 30 pages of posts? Fuck.

    Not wanting to resurrect any debates but the FIRRUB thing came up on another thread recently where some yank flamed me for referring to the blue cassette as Frenzy. When I pointed out that the only place the blue cassette is Rumble is the G1 cartoon he shut up. As far as the debate goes, to each their own, same for who became Scourge and Cyclonus.

    It is odd to think though that Sunstreaker and Sideswipe were mixed up FIRRUB style.


    RK specific.


    I saw that story in another thread but RK is usually the first company to alert everyone to KOs, how to spot them and don't stock them so I'm not sure how true it is.


    I would have thought that it's more to do with Unique Toys who MMC are competing with over the Predacons. RK and Unique Toys are very closely related to the point where I believe RK is an investor in the company or something.


    Seem to be hearing that a lot sadly. I haven't bought them yet and am really not sure whether to or not.


    I sold one on Ebay 3 weeks ago, final closing price was £4.99 so not exactly awe inspiring.


    Please tell me it's this one.


    Pro tip: Never live in a place that has sash windows. They can be opened in seconds from the outside.


    Stevil33 - Sorry to hear you've been burgled. It's never happened to me but it's always been something I've dreaded.

    Agreed, we thought that's about as low as it gets. Kids have been traumatised ever since. :( 

    The only good thing was that the tossers went from the back of the houses across the fields at the back to the main road and there was a policecar sat in the lay-by and caught them red-handed with the stuff. One of the neighbours heard the alarm go off, checked and rang the police and luckily they were passing :D

    :lol 

    Yes, really strange how that worked out. Would never have believed it until seeing that article by Maz. Still think that if an MP Sunstreaker comes along then a red 'diaclone' repaint would be pretty cool.

    Bloody brilliant band, (if you like 90's dance music :thumb  each to their own......:) ) saw them at the Leeds festival a few years back, the bass nearly ripped my fillings out - did BM really use it as the theme music?

    Sorry to hear about this, Stevil; hope they catch the bastards, and string them up by what very little testicles they have!!

    On a side note, imagine my surprise when I went into TRU today and found some NanoBlock sets, that were Japanese imports!
