    Yup, thirding the Orbital vote. It's just by Leicester Sq tube.

    Otherwise, Central London means LOL-random-possibly-great finds in Talgarth Road Sainsbury's or a trip to the Bayswater TRU (in Whiteley's). Of course, this is mass retail toys we're talking about, so scant pickings at present.

    London drinking - let's say 29 November, then - our choices are faux German Beer Hall in Hyde Park or at the pub where the landlord is a TF fan and will make sure we get good treatment.

    What are people's preferences?

    simond - what's the chance of getting you along for beers?

    Very low at the moment, my dads in hospital at the moment, so can't take more time away from seeing the kids unfortunately.

    I was just about to PM you fine fellas :) 

    It looks as though 7th Dec may be the date in that case.

    Is that ok with everyone Notts based?

    Sorry to hear that, mate. Hope your dad makes a speedy recovery.

    No offense intended, Jack, but your prices look far too high, especially as postage is not included. Everyone on TFW is incredibly savvy about prices and equally mean, so they'll pay as little as possible and still whine about it. Not quite the welcome I had in mind for you, but I wish you well with your sales.

    When's your birthday mate?

    Yep, I agree. I love Prowl, but prefer Bluestreak. Wonderful figure. I love the head sculpt.

    No worries at all, I thought the prices were pretty good after checking eBay sales and the uk online stores and as they are all brand new and sealed (except Overlord).

    I'll leave them for a bit and then maybe shift them to eBay in a few days if no interest.

    Cheers,
    Jack.

    My rushed posts on my breaks are poor - it was meant to mean those are the dates I can't do!

    29th sounds good for me. Ironichide keeps asking me on Facebook in French to bring 3 buckets or something. Freak... :crazy:  Seriously though, I know I have to bring Sandstorm for Ironic, anyone else need anything?

    I've got original pages for MTMTE, if Maz comes shall we all colour them in in front of him? G2 coloured Drift anyone? :bay 


    His prices are the same as mine/Kapows/Ebays so I don't know why you think they are far too high? You then go on to say everyone is mean, will pay as little as possible and then still whine so why should he put them lower?

    Case in point, I did the big sale last week and I still got emails from people wanting lower prices. One guy asked if he could have stuff that was £200, marked down to £95, for £55!

    Can we have the original welcome you had in mind for him now? Christ, you'd have sworn this was the third party forum for a minute :lol 


    Don't worry about it man, your prices look okay. You could list a MISB MP-11 for £1 and someone would still offer 50p so list above the price you want cause people will haggle.

    simond - sorry to hear it, all the best, etc.

    Genetic - ah, yeah, I'd be so up for trolling Maz like that. I'll bring crayons. Do you have a preference for venue?

    Jack - don't know about anything else but *swoon* at that Overlord. My £2 offer still holds firm. Call me, let's make this happen.

    Some of the prices seem a little high, but they're all within reasonable ranges imho. At least I never asked for a discount on Trypticon, means I now have an almost complete one as I already had the accessories :) 

    Thanks, it's pretty much just him getting old and having a fall, so not life threatening but may well need lifestyle changes from him.

    I'd be up for drawing characters into the background of those pages... that would probably push Maz over the edge! :ev: 

    I suppose you need to enact the final enablement on the Feralcons to me don't you?
