HA, even Hasbro can't transform their own toys! Man, did you see Megatron's tank around the front when he is in robot mode with his arms up in the air like he surrenders.

hahahahahahah, and I thought TRU was lame for the Prime shots.

Dude, if you think that's bad, rummage around and take a gander at their attempt on RiD Magnus... it's embarassing - and also the image used in all their advertising...

The one that's in the Titan books? It's pathetic... they don't even get the truck mode right, and he's bloody boxed in truck mode!

Yeah, i cked out www.toysrus.co.uk and the hasbro.co.uk

I can't believe they don't have the stock like the .com counterparts.

It is really odd that we are ahead of you guys with toy releases, but supposedly London is one of the worlds first trend setters...
wish you guys could get the toys regularly like we do.

Nearly all the best punk bands were from London ['ceptions being The Avengers, Television, Ramones and allegedly Blondie - a great band but not really punk]...

Erm... aside from that, though...

I dunno. Londoners pretty much started the fashion of supporting Manchester United over the past ten years...

Yeah, it sucks, you're not even allowed to order from the .com websites and get the stuff sent to an address outside of the US. Um, why????

All I want to do is give them some money, is it that hard for a business to take money from a customer? Sometimes I think companies are looking for ways to deliberately cut their profits.

It's good that Armada is starting to show signs of release over here though, I wants to get me a Starscream. Without paying shipping costs higher than the price of the toy.

yeah, he is definitely one of the coolest Armada figures.

I still say Megs is the best, but when the Deluxe Prime comes out, that will be a tough call.

Dead Kennedys granted... never heard much of X or Operation Ivy, will try some downloads - any song recommendations? And Rancid are about as punk as Offspring. Or Blondie.

It's just sad that they don't even put enough thought into transformering their own toys. This lack of concern is probably the same reason Galvatron is just a repainted or Megatron... again!

Those are fighting words and you just pointed out your ignorance on the matter. Rancid used to be Operation Ivy.

And what about the Dropkick Murphys?

Sorry, do I have to know a band's total history to like them or not? I mean, what band did Sid Vicious play drums for at one gig before he replaced Matlock? If someone doesn't know, it doesn't mean they can't have an opinion on the Sex Pistols [admittedly, they'd still be able to talk about most of the band's recordings, what with Sid not playing on nearly all of it]. And I just said I'd barely heard Operation Ivy - I think one or two tracks at a club. That probably says more for my ignorance on them than not knowing their Rock Family Tree... I did ask for download suggestions to help my appreciation, after all...

Dropkick Murphys? Heard a selection, not impressed. The Avengers are the best US punk band I've ever heard, it's a shame their recordings are so bloody hard to track down... Especially on vinyl, the medium punk was made for...
