    The only place I can think of that has that certain Lego piece recently is the Lego Minifigure Viking where it's used as horns on his helmet.

    Argh I'm so stressed for this school year (not grades wise , I'm getting As and A* luckily)
    , GCSEs are coming up and the governors decided that school should be from 8:30 to 4:00! Bloody ridiculous! Since my school is 2 hours away by commute I won't be able to watch TF Prime on TV at all! Ah well at least YouTube saves the day. From the Prime line I think I'm going to order DLX BB, Arcee, Voyager Prime and Bulkhead and all the cyberverse figures, can't wait :)

    Sounds about right. iirc they come with spares of that particular piece, but I used them all on Megatron.

    Well my TFCC Sideburn arrived but the end of the missile is well and truly bent (the end that plugs into the missile launcher.) The missile can't go in the launcher because of the bend. The plastic isn't broken so it must have happened during manufacture. very disappointed.

    He's the Rodimus repaint, right? I may be able to knock something up for you.

    Quick question- would you guys say classics Mirage's front wheel axle- the round bit just inside his wheels- is 0.9cm in diameter? This has to be pretty precise to work.

    NICE, thanks man! That was so quick it's almost as if you had the measurement on hand :p  Would you say the wheels themselves are slightly bloated mid-width? Just a little barrel-shaped? I want to say there's a 0.5mm difference in radius from mid-width to wheel edge.

    Gimme an hour I'll I'll measure out the whole wheel. (Doesnt matter that I'm measuring off Dragstrip does it?)

    You should really look into getting a set of digital calipers.

    That'd be absolutely grand mate, thanks a lot! Nah don't imagine it'd make any difference.

    Yeah I was thinking that when I posted last. Could probably make good use of em at uni and beyond too, will have to have a look around for a nice set.

    Awesome, thanks mate! You're scarily good at this stuff :lol  Would you be able to measure the cylinder on the end of the struts that connect the wheel to the body? That's it then, ready to start rendering. Thanks for helping out man, let me know if there's anything I can help you with :)

    Thanks, yes it's the blue Rodimus repaint. I've email the Collectors Club to see if I can get a replacement missile. It's not soft plastic so I don't think it could be straightened.

    I must be like the only TF collector in my area, my local TRU (Reading, Berkshire) is a fuckin gold mine. Casually walked in today and saw HA Jazz and MP Rodimus just sitting right there. Also got the Kre-O Bumblebee (the cheap, small one), which is kinda cool, I'm not much of a lego guy but itsok i guess. I lol'd at the manual having a small warning saying "does not convert".

    Found a tomahawk in TK Max for £6. I'm incredibly underwhelmed by him :(  was hoping to for him with my classics but he just isn't doing anything for me.

    Nope. Reading my local TRU as well... and I reported on the MP Rodimus in the sighting forum. Just doesn't interest me :D

    My Tk Maxx hasn't had anything in months, let alone any decent HFTD figures!

    For £6 he can't be that bad, right?
