I finally grabbed the last 2 of 4 decks off layby from my mates skate shop (hes had them on hold for months now haha)
each deck is ltd 1/100 and is designed by Melbournes street artist Meggs

i wont post a photo of them but heres a linked picture

my mate said he cant get them in anymore but i had a quick search and there are a few available from the website. just beware, by the look of the site the ones they do have arent all matching skate deck sizes so if you wanted all 4 it might look a little strange

here is the link if anyone is keen

Just out of interest are these licensed products? Did we ever get a licensed Transformers skateboard other than the Beast Wars skateboard? I'd probably get a TF skateboard if I saw one locally. :)

Pretty sure I saw one a couple of months ago at TRU :confused:

I don't think they are. The pictures to me look a bit generic with the exception of Ravage and Lazerbeak/Buzzsaw.

TRU was when I last saw a Transformers skateboard too.

Of course, this was in 1998 and it had Rhinox on it. :p

From the userguide (http://www.otca.com.au/boards/showthread.php?t=2) dude..

This is bad 'netiquette', because it draws on the host's bandwidth every time the thread is accessed, including by those not wanting to see the picture, and those who already have seen it and are replying to any follow-up postings.

Saw a Transformers Animated skateboard in the Target catalogue tonight. Don't know if they actually sell them as it was being used as a prop for one of the male models and didn't have a price. It is on pages 8/9 (http://target.dynamiccatalogue.com.au/portal/dynamiccatalogue?CatalogueID=12876146475366&pageview=two).
