Not a problem and totally agree with you.

30 years of design improvements will do that...

New toys: Another movie-themed pack, with Hot Rod, Kup, Galvatron, Scourge, Cyclonus and a generic Junkion trooper (Scrap Heap, presumably a remold of Wreck-Gar) and the PCC Minicons get themselves repainted as Recoil, Firebolt and Fracas (Targetmaster companions to Kup, Hot Rod and Scourge, respectively).

Sadly, it's e-Hobby exclusive.

Actually, it's apparently Recoil, Fracas and Haywire (Blurr's partner). I thought that was kinda weird, but since the Minicons are apparently a separate set on their own it actually makes sense -- after all, Classics Hot Rod wouldn't be able to hold any of the Minicons unless they were remolded to include a handle he can use.

Want. Just him. Screw the rest of the guys. I'd love a generic Junkion for Wreck-Gar to ride around on.

Yeah, my first thought when I saw Wreck-Gar was that you'd need to get two for the complete experience.

Bunch of new Minicons but they are European exclusive. Maybe to compensate for the lack of Spastic in the UK?

Yup, those poor broke children of ultra-rich rockstars. He's also apparently a history student, and didn't know what the Cenotaph was (though "The Glorious Dead" would give most people a clue). Clue, mate: it's a monument to people who fought and died so you could have everything you've got today. I don't generally agree with papers like the Daily Heil or the Torygraph, but personally I hope they hound the ignorant twat for a few months. Or just cut him up and leave him in bins.

In fairness though, I've no idea why a relatively obscure Paul McGann Doctor Who comic has its own monument. Yes, it's the longest running srip DWM ever did, and yes it has the Master and Kroton, the Cyberman with a soul, in it. But giving it a proper memento with a flag and everything, well its no wonder some random woman was pissed.

EDIT: Wait.... "Son"... That's a man? I take all me completely serious post back.

I'm actually pretty sure I read one of the papers callin him a woman before they dug up the dirt.

As a young'n I often get lumped in with scum like that. I'm just glad I'll be a copper in a couple of months so people will know which side of the riot shield I would have been standing on.

On topic: if those minicons are eu-exclusive I dont think it'll be enough to convince me I live on the right side of the pond.

I already have all of those moulds in original colours, which I do have to admit I actually prefer... But they are largely great Min-Cons, and worth picking up if you don't already have them in some incarnation.

I'd take them over Spastic anyday, regardless of name.

I dunno, some of them atually give old Spazzy a bit of a run. Dive Plane? What does that even mean*? Heavy Liftor? Have Mattel trademarked the letter 'e'? Ironside? Why isn't he a cripple? Iron Claw - are they just jamming random words on the end of 'Iron' now and just relying on no-one giving a shit? Reachout? He sounds like a damn care in the community scheme. Barrel Roll? He was a prat in GI Joe. Bah. I'm so old and grumpy.


* = note to Waki-nerds and other joyless pedants: I know what it ****ing means, it's just stupid.

Buckshot's name is cool enough for the lot of them, frankly.

Gets over the problems with Rumble and Frenzy because now you now effectively have a Grand Slam with actual robot mode
