    "What's in all these crates cadet?"
    "6 phased plasmacasters, 6 semi sentient rocket launchers, 3 auto rail guns, 16 semi automatic disruptor rifles, 30 liquid fragmentation grenades, 600 brain bullets, brass knuckles, sharp sticks, a feather duster and a book of harsh language."

    I had no idea, I only mentioned Motormaster as he clearly wouldn't work! :)

    Kuro kara kuri SG optimus prime, by flame toys. Highly expensive, highly expressive. Non transformable though.

    I reckon he could have pulled it off with a set of alt. feet & chest but AFAIK it was only a bonce so, yes, a travesty in potential!

    What is everyone's favourite Unicorn Trilogy mold? You have one choice. Mines...

    Cybertron Evac. What a bloody amazing helicopter with fun gimmicks thats dont effect the robot at all. Plus gold cyber planet key. I remember asking my mum to look out for him while she went on a visit to TRU and she actually came back with him. What a night that was. Cybertron gives me such good memories of being a kid and playing with Transformers.

    Only one? Hmmmm. A few spring to mind instantly, but if it is only one from the whole trilogy.... I'd have to go tidal wave. Three boats that form an aircraft carrier that looks cool, that turns into a big robot that also looks cool, and has some nifty features like the aircraft hanger lift.

    Ooh I need to update the list.

    I'm missing one limb each from Superion Maximus and Constructicon Maximus.

    Lol, all good! Hope the garage transformation is going well.

    Congrats @Q Prime, enjoy the Summer!

    Edit:

    Not that I have handled all of them but Energon Demolisher for me. That green with a massive insignia! The missiles too. I might give him some Battlemaster guns if they are compatible.

    I've discovered Arms Micron (e.g. I read it on Wiki), has anyone had any experience with collecting them? It sounds like a massive black hole!

    Some potato cam pics for @Astro-Furby

    It wouldn't take much for an enterprising 3p company to osko the legacy one, tweak a few things and end up with a really nice MP scale figure.

    And for @number13 I transformed a DS seeker.

    Compared to maketoys, it's a lot more complicated. Not the easiest by a long shot.
    But not bad, and once you know where you're ending up, it gets much better.
    The instructions are rubbish. Watch a video or three, and it'll be smooth sailing.

    I can’t be the only one who thinks it’s dumb to sell the whole thing to a man whose surname means ‘moron’, right?

    if you missed the Decepticon 4 pack for £100 on Pulse, its now £101 on Amazon, or £109 from Amazon EU, but the EU one will apparantly arrive way sooner which is odd.

    I like Javelin very much. She also came with a free Chromia repaint, but who cares about that? She's Chromia without the elevating factor of actually being Chromia. Although I might give her gun to Chromia. I said Chromia way too much there, it's starting to sound weird...

    If anyone wants a Kaskade - without gun - just let me know. You can have it for postage.

    I've been considering Senator Ratbat, but on reflection (ho ho ho) I think he might well be too Legacy-shiny.

    And here it is, one of the ones I was hoping for.

    Now take him out with one punch Gears!

    Loved this as a child. The Complete works were read more than anything else in my younger days.

    Loved Mirage losing an arm, Op getting his arm blown off, the whole thing, with Man of Iron cemented my love of Transformers



    I'm not a fan of the brown colour


    He'll probably want a drink and sweets too............and he will probably get it as I am softer than a soft mint in the centre!

    Afraid not, the button is no longer available! I have substituted a trolley token for the button.
