  1. In stock here: http://cyberstore.decepticon-matrix.com/posters.html Well worth it - I've had it a few years now, and it's completely awesome. Still can't find Apeface though.
  2. Disappointingly, you're missing nothing at all. Here's hoping someone goes and sells custom-made Cliffjumper heads to replace it with!
  3. I've had one of these for a while - must be over 2 years! It's actually rather nice quality - I'd recommend it. Here you can see the results of me attacking it with a bit of paint (not the greatest job ever, but this was before touching up!)
  4. London is a surprisingly terrible place to go shopping for old toys - I can't honestly recommend that you actually waste of of your time over here looking for old ones. In my own personal experience everything around there is done either online or at collector's fairs, there are very few shops buying and selling in the Greater London area, and bear in mind also your terrible dollar/pound exchange rate will mean things are ridiculously priced for you. If you live in the USA, going to a place like TRU will only make you feel sorry for us at the limited release of stuff we get over here. Harrods and Hamleys may make you want to slit your wrists at the prices. The only toy store I can actually recommend in Central London is Orbital - it's just outside Tottenham Court Road tube station, across the road from the Astoria - look for the sign on the outside as otherwise you'll miss it!! Sometimes they don't have much, but other times they can have some cool - albeit sometimes a bit expensive - japanese import stuff like Transformers.
  5. I'd love to see those G1 figures that originally sucked quite badly made into great figures that could happily slot in alongside any G1 collection. Therefore I'd like to see... Ironhide and Ratchet (surely two of the worst G1 bots) Sunstreaker Almost any of the combiner teams, because their individual bot modes were, on the whole, pretty terrible
  6. They manufacture all sorts of construction machinery, but the 'classic' JCB as it were is a Backhoe loader... see here http://www.freefoto.com/preview.jsp?id=21-09-5
  7. Would look a treat in the same room as this... check out the pic in the top right corner of this page.. http://www.millionaireplayboy.com/toys/jenslegodesigner.php
  8. Gaz's version hits the nail bang on the head. The E-hobby version just burns my eyes! It's almost like looking at a photographic negative!
  9. Well it's Prime, but I think I'd feel dirty buying this. It just seems a little lame, like Prime sold out!
  10. I think it's quite amusing the fact that anyone would keep Fort Max, Metroplex, Masterpiece Prime or any of the other TFs that come with a windowless box MISB, let along have it AFA graded... Wouldn't you ever wonder what it looked like in there? Doesn't it totally and utterly defeat the point? I can understand why people will keep a G1 Prime or Magnus MISB, or collect the Binaltechs MISB, because they still look kinda pretty inside the box, but the others? Madness I tell you.
  11. How do they know that there's actually a Fort Max in that AFA sealed box? Surely if it's MISB, with all the polystyrene you couldn't tell if there's a toy in there or not. It might just be full of bricks. And if it is.. I say MUHAHAHAHAH!
  12. I know this is a bit of a crazy plan, but what you COULD do instead is save the slightly scary amount of money it takes for a fat man in a basement to say something's 'AFA85' or whatever, and instead buy yourself more nice TFs or something else you want!
  13. Is this the first time that E-Hobby have gone for an actual remould of the figure (the tape deck) rather than a simple repaints? And how do you manage to get through the E-hobby site with it all in Japanese?!
  14. Gutted. You didn't get Nightbeat, the finest minicon evah!
  15. I bought a brand new beast machines Jet Storm and T-Wrecks the other day from a place in Southampton for £10 each, as was feeling rich. Was rather pleased!
  16. Woah, sounds like someone really needs to get his priorities straight. Accidents happen, mistakes are made, it's how we learn. Doesn't make the whole thing any easier - I'd be most upset if this happened to me - but to be fair, there are more important things in life (this is assuming you actually have one!).
  17. I bought a few things from this guy, namely the e-hobby Clampdown and Deepcover repaints - they did take a fair while to get to the UK, and his communication was practically zero - but they were at a good price!
  18. Oh hush. Everyone needs Wheelie. I've found that actually I've stopped buying TFs except for G1 and Binaltech, because I'm not that bothered about Cybertron at all. Of course, I may change my tune once we start seeing them out here properly!!
  19. To be honest, I'm sure that you could have better spent your money elsewhere than buying a big stack of Starscreams. Like so many other people here, I fail to see the point - aren't you running out of room?
  20. Apart from the Grimlock arms-popping-off problem, I haven't had a problem with any of the BTs - and I have them all - so perhaps you're just unlucky. Mind you, I haven't taken Prowl out of the box yet - he only came this morning - so will wait to see if his mirrors snap off as has been widely reported!
  21. How on earth do you afford this when you're still in school?! Are you a bank robber? I have a well paid job and I can't afford to buy all those TFs....
  22. I've always liked the scale of the WSTs against the citybots, so perhaps I'll look into these... where did you get them from, and how many pennies?
  23. On a related note, the Natural History Museum in London actually has a very nice condition G1 Grimlock in their dinosaur exhibition as one example of the toys based on dinosaurs!
  24. Check out the winning bidder's recent purchases (via his feedback) - seems like the lucky guy has a fair bit to spend!
  25. Try and exorcise those completist demons. They are the downfall of many a toy collector and their wallet. Get what you want but be sensible!!!
