I haven't forgotten. I just haven't acquired anything TF-related today. I accept donations though.

Getting told off for owning/buying too many TFs? Use my solution

1/ get a PO Box &

2/ Don't tell anyone about what you acquire (well, except for us here )

Ah I know what you're talking about exactly! Though it hasn't happened to me in the past 3 weeks since I've mostly gotten Lego.

Two ways I get around this stuff:

1.) Leave it in the car and smuggle it up when everyone's asleep.

2.) Send it to the Missus' place

3.) Send it to a friend's place

SCORE!! I just picked up Universe/Classics Prowl and Octankor at Kmart - 15% off!

I went there to buy them, but a staff member had obviously left one of last week's sale tickets on... I asked the nearest guy (who turned out to be the Toy/Leisure Manager) and he said it was a mistake, but that I could have any TFs for 15% off!

With an absolutely massive thankyou to Demonac & Iceburn, a package showed up today with a loose but complete Cyclonus as well as a MISB Scourge

Well, I contemplated keeping Scourge MISB but then I thought "Nah!" & finally set him free after 22 long years (Now, I'm starting to feel just a little queezy breathing in that 22 year old air )



This was the first sealed G1 I've ever opened & it made me feel "kinda special"
