    Just managed to place an order for Nemesis Prime from Smyths, so I don't know if this is one of the "order Bumblebee before sunrise" situations again.

    Cancelled purchase? Excess stock i.e. they bought some extras themselves? If it's the latter, I'm shocked they haven't increased their price to account for having money tied up for 18 months

    And sold out again, probably a good job so I didn't get tempted to do something stupid and order it :lol  it does look incredible to me but I can't justify it, have no space and usually prefer to wait for reviews before ordering things, that and the fact there were never any payment plans for it. That's a lot of loose change to dump in one go.

    I will be incredibly jealous of anyone who owns it though.

    Okay, I feel daft as I don't know why I didn't put any pre-orders anywhere for Studio series 86 Hot Rod or Scourge, anyone know anywhere still with open Pre-orders for them? I have a feeling that waiting for and trying to get general stock might be a little bit of a mission.

    I see most places have them as supposedly arriving next month.

    Edit: Was kinda hoping Smyths would have had them on their site and thus could just get them from there but they've not had them as of yet on there.

    Smyths told me they aren't having the 2 voyager figures or grimlocks. Or had no plans to in December

    I really hope this isn't true because I didn't preorder the two voyagers thinking Smyths would get them

    Damn I also hope this is false. But the fact they're not on the website and supposed to be released in the next couple of months lends credence to what you've been told.

    I have most sites I can think of on Email alert for both of the voyagers :lol  I'm also in for Kup and Jazz but feel they will be significantly easier to come across so not gonna pre-order them and wait to see who gets them in first.

    Not too many figures on my radar this year tbh, Some of the Studio Series 86, most of the G1 only figures from Kingdom, Inferno is coming around to me even though I've been happy with the POTP figure, Huffer looks decent. Rumour wise I'm interested in Kingdom Tracks and Pipes, and selects toy colours Galvatron and Artfire.

    Unsure on Magnus, those recent in hand pictures do look good but I've spent a fair bit on upgrades for my Siege and customized it quite a bit that I pretty much only prefer the alt mode of the Kingdom one, and the two bot modes are level on how much I like them from each other. I mainly want to see if I can use the shoulder armour of Siege on Kingdom to see if it matches colourwise (Close enough anyway) and if it'll still fit in Alt mode.
