    I didn't grab too much.

    Scampers arm.
    Scampers other arm, but no post. It has a date with a drill, glue and post.
    Action Master Jazz (kudos to Red Leader! Getting names wrong here...)
    ROTF Mindwipe.
    Henkei Hound.
    Generations Cybertron Prime.

    That was pretty much it, and I also grabbed a Bishojou Dark Phoenix from the comic store around the corner, which is why I ran off just before we went to Pizza (not so) Express.

    Cuz you know. I am a dirty dirty pervert and T&A often distracts me from things like food.

    I didn't get as much as I hoped - as folks were probably aware from Friday's events, it appears I've used a 'compromised' cash machine at some point as some See You Next Tuesday cleaned my current account out on Thursday, leaving me some £600 short. :(  Hopefully it'll get sorted soon, but in the meantime my family was utterly awesome enough to put a couple of hundred into another account to tide me over until I get my money back. :)  (I utterly love my dad for lending me the money and my fiancee for arranging the transfer). So my haul was somewhat smaller than hoped for but I got:

    Aveo Swerve
    G1 Skyhopper
    G1 Skyquake (free of GPS, so far!)
    WfC Prime
    WfC BB
    WfC Megs
    MOSC BW Terrorsaur in t4e's clear-out auction.
    Various Robot Heroes
    Also got my grubby paws on Punch/Counterpunch, he was paid for months ago but I'm counting him in my haul just to boost up the numbers!
    On the spare parts front I got the remaining ramp & gun I need to complete G1 Countdown, the individual guns I need for my Protectorbots, various parts rescued from Kapow's junk box including G2 Onslaught's chest piece, a G1 cassette case, G1 Swindle's tech specs and RiD Prowl & X-Brawn's weapons.

    Nonetheless it was an epic weekend, and the toy-buying has become secondary to the social event itself, seeing old friends, meeting a bunch of awesome new people and getting up to all sorts of shenanigans! :D  Bring on Botcon & AA 2011!

    Of all the things you could threaten to ban me for after this weekend, that shouldn't even be on there :lol 

    Me and Matt Messenger (who was helping on Andy's stall with me) got the only two in the building just before doors opened on Saturday.

    Ratbat is LOVELY ;)
