Surely not in the Universe line?

:lol:

Seriously, though, the first release of the mould was pretty perfect as far as I'm concerned, so it's great that folks will get a chance to pick him up if they missed out the first time (postage is not a friend of this guy). At least they've not repacked the Energon colours... *shudder*

New sale thread added with a range of Transformers including Masterpiece, Botcon, CHUG, RID, Movies etc.

Looking for MP-11T Thundercracker and MP-9 Rodimus v2 (Takara version with as few QC issues as possible).


Check out my new sale thread now!

Also items on eBay.

I got fed up waiting to see if he would get a UK release so I bought this tonight instead:

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll? ... :IT&ih=018

and then I notice this and realise hes finally making it to market:mad:

I should be able to sell all the other stuff bar the WST Hotrod(Im keeping that) as I already have it and make most if not all of the money back-Yay free Unicron.
Tho' how on Earth he reckons he can post that lot for £4 beats me.
Loss of job. Will sell for food here.

Let me know which 'mystery' WSTs turn up, and you may have a buyer.

I was kinda hoping for SOME kind of difference, hoping for a more G1 accurate paint job. But no matter, I picked mine up for a tenner due to mispricing at a local toyshop. That made me a very very happy man.

After all, Dead End is worth that tenner!:D

Well unless its a Soundwave w/Ravage(unlikely) I already have all t'others after getting Megs and Jazz for £9 the pair at Auto Assembly(I even talked the guy into giving Clogs WST Screamer and Thrust for £4 the pair-man I can hustle) So the OP is up for grabs and stay tuned for the "mystery" goodness and they are yours Numbat.

Hey, Numbat, don't be pressured to take them. I can always make some extra room. :D
