    I know what you mean, I was after it for ages too! Picked it up a couple of months ago on eBay, some guy had 10 on there all buy it now! Thankfully I've nearly finished RID, then I'll concentrate on MTMTE!

    It was changed last minute from 1:10 ratio to 1:25 is what I have heard. Only one has been on eBay and that was after release on Aug 6th, sold immediately, and none since. Milehighcomics had one on their site but that got grabbed asap too.

    It's easily the hardest incentive for MTMTE to find. I think I have one coming to me, but I'm not sure yet, depends what my friend can sort out for me.

    Keep your eyes peeled, that's going to be the one missing from everyone's collection.

    All the best

    On the subject of wants does anyone have IDW Prowl Spotlight 1B & or 1C for sale?

    Also after Energon Barricade, doesn't have to have paperwork or accessories and doesn't have to be particularly good condition either.
    Cheers.

    I also joined the Streak club today(cheers Kapow) what......a........figure!!!
    Does the above line sound like I got MP-18 today or I got naked at a sporting event? :)

    Does anyone know why some Dr. Wus swords come with holders that plug into a 5mm port and other don't - even the exact same sword - depending on where it's bought - for example Kapow has no clips.

    Anyone got any idea why ?

    Hmmm that sounds a little like a made up story to me. I think they may have been counting on a 1:10 variant but lost out when IDW changed to 1:25, imagine how significantly they would have had to up their stock to meet all of their regulars' orders for the variant cover in such an instance.

    All the best

    I love MP Bluestreak.

    That made me laugh! Although, it put a strange image in my head....
    Sorry Stevil :)

    After a manic week at work (that's not over yet as I'm having to work the weekend) I got a nice surprise from Kapow. My order of MP Streak shipped and he is fantastic looking. I think I prefer the Amazon.jp launchers on Streak that Prowl. Might be Streaks colours fit better with them.
    I was surprised to see him arrive since I ordered it with MP Smokescreen and expected them both to ship at the same time.

    Had to skim over this thread since I've not been on all week. 10 pages to go though with 40 posts a page is a lot.

    And as for that list of Generations figures that's been posted. I'll believe we are getting all that when I see pictures.

    Dam, sorry to hear that.

    :lol  yet another meaning. haha

    Yeah forgot to say when I read it earlier, sorry about your mrs CZ.
    Thats pretty fucked up for the company to do that to her, as previously mentioned you should look into what legal action can be taken.

    I think all the listing include the hasbro asia releases too hence Sidswipe, but that said shouldn't Prowl and Bluestreak be on there as well?

    it's nice to sort of have a deluxe Rattrap half confirmed though. It will be interesting to see if they give Hard Head the Warpath body in the comics though.

    Speaking of Warpath I got the United version earlier (going to kitbash one of them into Impactor using shapeways parts) and the joints on him seem a lot tighter than the ones on the Hasbro version for some strange reason.

    Thanks guys, we're looking into our options. Had some decent people reach out to us and give us some advice, there really are some good people in this fandom who I'm fortunate enough to call friends.

    Just a ball ache really, life is on hold and we're just sat around waiting for surgery for the next few months, but at least they've offered surgery now which is more than they did when we went through this five years ago.

    Well Streak has finally arrived, and it's only taken 5 days since Kapow posted it.
