Forgive my stupidity, but is Doom-Lock amongst the wave 3 basics?
I wish you would take my radio to bathe with you...

nope, he's apart of Wave 4 Basics, due out soon, and consisting off the first part of the Gestalts...they're listed as Wave 4, but probaly won't be released at same time as Command Ravage, Doom-Lock and the others.

Actually the Repaint on Strongarm and Signal Flare are Wave 4, Doomlock and Command Ravage Wave 5 and the Combiners are Wave 6.

I can't get over $70 for Alt Smokescreen.. Poor people in Balcultha


I'll have a report on the TF situation in Oamaru tomorrow, as I am heading there. Drive = practice even though I can't afford the petrol.

Cripes, those are some horrendous prices at that toyworld. How can they justify it?

Good prices on Megas at farmers though. Are those specials nationwide?

1x Acree
3x Insecticon
1x Strongarm
1x E Saber

Farmers had 4 of those Clear Spychangers ... 2 Wars, 1 Crosswise and someone else. Bout time they got these other TFs that people have reported on seeing in other Farmers. Stocked to the brim with Deluxes, so I doubt they will get anymore soon.
