I thought so. The quality's not great, so I guess it's debatable as to whether or not it's a shame that there aren't any other Protectobots to go with it.

This one, also available in other colours (not my photo)? https://i.imgur.com/Bo7aK4c.jpg https://i.imgur.com/Bo7aK4c.jpg It might be a box set if it's the one I'm thinking of. Seemed overpriced considering the apparent quality. I think that's the one...it didn't look like a box set to me, as the f...

Spotted this in B&M Bargains Pontypridd the other day. Not sure how much as I didn't buy it. It's obviously an oversized knockoff of CW Hotspot, and there don't seem to be any accompanying Protectobots, despite this still having the combiner ports and it being called a combiner. EDIT: Image won't up...

Not sure if this is the right thread, but I can't seem to find the old UK thread, so here goes nothing. Spotted these in Forbidden Planet Cardiff the other day. £18-19 in price, each is stickered. Haven't checked the other places, may have time to do so today; will update this post with more info if...

Kapow's FB says they're getting some in May. No preorders though as they don't know how much stock they'll get. I messaged Kapow about CW Groove the other day; they got back to me with the vague answer that preorders would be going up "soon", but didn't elaborate further. RobotKingdom and PremiumCo...

Spending the weekend at the MCM Expo London Comic Con at the ExCel Center in Canary Wharf, where I picked up the rest of the Protectobots alongside my previously-acquired Rook to form Defensor! Cracking good set, and a great gestalt too. Been looking forward to completing the bunch, and am very hap...

Oh, get the **** over yourself. Seriously. Yeah, I get that a lot. You'd think by now I'd have learned by now to just turn a blind eye and not f***ing bother, but I guess I'm just a glutton for punishment.

HASBRO is very likely not an official representative of Hasbro. In which case his pretentiousness kind-off pisses me off. I'm usually quite happy to make a fool out of myself, so long as it actually benefits somebody -- but not for some sh!thead troll's personal amusement. That just offends me, and...

? The kind of response he gave to one guy whose opinion contradicts/opposes his own, strikes me as a fair bit unprofessional. He's supposed to be Hasbro's representative to the fanbase. One would think he'd answer this kind of verbal challenge with a composed and intelligent response, as opposed to...

I'd love to see an open-world Transformers game one day, but if War for Cybertron is anything to go by High Moon probably aren't the people to do it. WFC was almost painfully linear, and about as far as you can get from a sandbox game like GTA. I don't think High Moon has much experience with anyth...

Finally after patiently waiting for over a year. I've bagged myself a v2 misb fansproject city commander for £146 delivered. They have 7 more on their eBay listing and have excellent feedback. Described as genuine fansproject and not a ko so perhaps it's one of the recent reissues that were made ea...

Just been informed that my Generations Warpath was dispatched on Saturday. Can't wait for it to get here, and the seller is UK-based so it should be here in the next two or three days. Am I the only one who hates that Gen.Wave 7 has had such wide-spread (cough*global*cough) distribution problems? No...

though if what's been said about them having a table at Botcon is true Hasbro don't seem so bothered to stop them. Possibly for Cliffy's reasoning that anyone spending the cash on these things almost certainly spends far, far more on official product. I have to say, as lovely looking as he is, I su...

Direct KOs are more of a concern for me (which aim at the same market, and may even undercut HasTak), and that's where I draw the line. But each to their own! I also totally fail to see the difference between City Commander Ultra Magnus armour and Presser Impactor (for instance) in terms of ripping...
