    IIRC the year before Amazon UK got POTP Nemesis Prime.... I'm a bit fuzzy on if the got the Prime Wars Trilogy but think they missed out on Arcee & Repugnus.

    Alt Universe Op is still unavailable at Amazon UK so it's probably saving us from harm!

    I pre-ordered AU Op from Amazon.com just to be safe. I'm intending to use him as my own take on Nemesis Prime as he kind of reminds me of the TFP design for Nemesis and I'm not keen on the teal on the actual Nemesis Prime. Also means I can nab his Matrix for Siege Prime as the description makes a point of saying it's still the vibrant Matrix ready to be passed on.

    I hope Amazon doesn't let me down, scorponok has now dropped to £118 with preorder guarantee so that's going to be a lovely price if they do

    My friend gave me some of these for my Birthday but I cannot for the life of me work out how the Optimus bends at the hips. I don't want to just force it because these things aren't the most sturdy feeling. It goes one 'click' and then doesn't want to go any further. What's the secret?
    I thought these things were supposed to be simple for the kids?
    And yes, I extended the abdomen area as shown in step one.

    Ta fer the reply. In final frustration last night I applied great pressure to it and it did finally move, albeit with a butt-puckering crunchy snap sound. I think it's the two ridges along the blue part putting pressure on the red part where they meet.
    It did result in some stress marks around the bottom of the post where it meets the back of his buttflap though. Is there any stress marking on yours there? There's no really solid area on the red flap to safely apply pressure to.

    Not TF talk but do remember some of us talking about North West London/Brent Cross. There is a burst water main on the A406 so if anyone is planning to go there, best not!

    Don't suppose anyone was seen any siege shockwave's around at not ridiculous prices. I'm in the west midlands and can't seem to find one.
