    checked the one in Rayleigh, just one steps and a few power battlers (all hound or crosshairs now) for a fiver. no CW legends anywhere

    grabbed the one step slug though. actually pretty nifty as the transformation is very similar to the big one.

    So I emailed Hasbro about Wave 4 and if it will include motormaster in the UK (Big mistake, I keep forgetting they'll never tell)

    Amazon.com and buy each figure individually to avoid customs fees.

    ASDA Colindale has a NuRID Bumblebee Blaster thing, which changes from a car to a blaster. Weirdly for a Hasbro product it doesn't even shoot NERFs, but it's own custom darts.

    Nice to see, and the price looks ok ......

    ..... till you realise Kapow had em (and still does) for £70!

    Transformers Platinum G1 Seekers Ramjet Dirge & Thrust

    Also encouraging for Perceptor, Blaster and Trypticon finally getting a UK release!

    (Blaster's tapes, in the Blaster & Perceptor set, have never had an official UK release but were available as Chinese grey imports in 94/5)

    Did you see Viper? If yes, that's wave 3. If not, seeing Warpath means squat, as he and Groove are available in the UK as part of wave 4 together with Rodimus and Skywarp.

    You pay it upfront through them if the sale is from Amazon itself, rather than a seller. Takes the £8/£13 fee to the Post Office/Parcelfarce out the equation.

    Thanks for the head's up on Motormaster. Really glad I didn't drop the £35 people were asking for him at Auto Assembly yesterday.

    If ordering of Amazon usa it can often be cheaper to break the order down to avoid the £15 customs charge. However they are just as likely to combine into one package for actual shipping.

    I tried it yesterday, ordering the limbs and Battle Core Prime separately, but it actually came out slightly more expensive doing it that way, than as an individual parcel.
