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

...Plugged in, and ready to fall

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?

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.
