Highbrow is in MTMTE? I must have missed that somehow... Maybe he will be the next TR figure I will open in that case! Anyhoo. Opened TR Chromedome and TR Mindwipe. Love them both. Mindwipe has an insanely inventive transformation, and the designers deserve a bonus for him! Chromedome is either a ve...

I used to love the Movie figures. I have loads of them. There are good figures from all Movie lines, but transformation design peaked with ROTF (but many were a bit too fiddly and complex to really be great fun!), and the fun/transformation balance was best at DOTM in my opinion (although they shrun...

I've got a few things recently, with a few more to go (Titans Return has hooked me on the G1 Headmasters... Well played Habsro, well played). Nick Roche signed prints: MTMTE Autobots seasons 1 & 2, MTMTE Decepticons season 2 and Sins of the Wreckers Mayhem Attack Squad. (Thanks Knightdramon!) Need t...

Yup - Overlord is the classic big-bad, with lots of fun but little depth. Tarn is a truly interesting yet terrifying character.

I love Tarn too, and thought his arc in MTMTE was masterfully written, playing out well with a very satisfying ending. He clearly went off the deep end after Megatron changed sides. He showed compassion towards Kaon, but later kills him out of frustration . I worry that attempts to fill in the blank...

Yup. Won't do it for standard release. I paid £16.99 for TR Skullcruncher, because of my poor impulse control and childhood fondness (he was my first Headmaster). I feel that was overpriced. No way will I go to £20!! OK... It has been brought to my attention that TR wave 2 figures will have been pr...

I am amazed people, intelligent people, are buying Titan Returns toys in Europe. Spending £20 on a mainline Deluxe figure with all the compromises and flaws that involves? Whole fandom's got less perspective than Pat Lee. Yup. Won't do it for standard release. I paid £16.99 for TR Skullcruncher, be...

That Megatron looks ace. Would be great if it is official, but even if it's another 3P one, it looks hands down the best attempt so far!

And it's filming at the Quiraing on Skye (Scotland) - one of my favourite places (although becoming rather overdone in cinema of late!).

I really wanted a Brainstorm, and had sold a fair few Transformers lately... But I couldn't decide between the Takara Legends (Generations) Voyager version or Hasbro Titans Return Deluxe version (folk on Twitter didn't help much - seemed 50/50). So I bought them both. Having had them for a week or s...

I'm not sure you and he are talking about the same toy. Generations Warpath was the Deluxe, wasn't he? The Legend (who, I agree, was quite neat) was Universe. Unless you're both talking about the repaint of Miner Megatron, then I'm the one who's confused. :) Ah. Could be. That Deluxe is cool too. I...

Numbat, prints sorted. ;) Dude you rock!

If not let me know via email or text (will PM you ...

Generations Warpath: Pulled this guy out of storage while finally getting around to unpacking and setting up my shelves. Geez, I have a lot of DVDs...... Anyway, I'd forgotten what a brilliant update of the little G1 minibot he is. And I like the futuristic quad tread H-tank look. Yeah - I love tho...

From memory, he has a S1 Lost Light, S2 Lost Light and villains of MTMTE prints, if those are the ones you are referring to. Any preference on which season you'd be after, if not both? We'll renegotiate who'll stand in the line and who'll hog the glory at the event...:lol: Damn, let's go S1, S2, vi...

Depends on availability numbat...which ones are you looking for? Flimflammery! We've spoken on twitter before! I didn't realise it was you because you use the handle Flimflammery.

This and Metroplex. Who do you think is better (or you like more) since you owned both of them? :( I want one, but I don't even dare to ask my wife "can I have one?"......
