I'm more shocked by the preceding one:

So Christopher Eccleston's been reduced to working in a toy store in a online comic? Typecasting really has got him hard...

And by "preceding one" I'm guessing you mean "very first" one... ?

Well, he is a (northern) Timelord.

Or I clicked on the wrong back button, take your pick.

Is it typecasting if it's the only thing you can play?

Wonderfully, the French dub keeps in all the stuff about him being Northern, but has a actor with a South French accent doing his voice. Class.

I can actually see a human character doing something like getting shot in the face by a Decepticon, sending Op off into a stilted, overacted rant about stupid apes.

Bless Cakemaster, though. He has all the range of a Hasbro reissue missile launcher.

The arms aren't as ornery as the mustang's, but they're up there.
Yeah, the first few times, it's a real bitch and a half to transform, but I think I've got the hang of it, now, and one of the doors pops off with absolutely no pressure whatsoever. The right hand doesn't like to stay attached either. I like both modes, though.

I wouldn't recommend him, unless you like Scourge/Nemesis Prime and/or pickup trucks.

Thanks bud. I actually bought one--and then learned about the 10% off code, so I went back and bought a second one, and then called to cancel the first one the next day.

But it's still showing that I have two coming to me. So either they messed up and I'm getting 2 for 1, or they never put my cancellation in the system and I'm getting two anyway. I probably should check my bank statement online to see if I've been charged for two or one.

In any case, if I end up with two--maybe I could trade someone for a 20th OP? haha

"only 10 pounds more"? Isn't that like 20 US$ or so? As much as I love London, you guys get majorly screwed with prices. It's like you take everything American, take off the $ sign and put a pound sign in its place. No wonder my Brit friends love coming to the States--it's cheap(er) here.

I don't believe this. My Nemesis Prime which was supposed to ship 7/31 is now on "backorder".

Please--someone kill me now. After all of this, they should just ship me a free Masterpiece Prime for all of the trouble.

That's not cool. Have you called them to see what the deal is?

Man, Hasbro's handling this like a bunch of n00bs.

The messed up thing was that I cancelled my previous order which had an order number of about 20 places earlier because I found the coupon code. If I don't get one cause I'm a cheap bastard who wanted to save $3, I'm going to get so mad at myself. lol.
