After a barrage of Masterpiece purchases and 3rd party review samples, the back end of January 2015 has been quiet in terms of new toys, and that's great news as it gives one the opportunity to go back and appreciate what's been bought, reviewed or long since locked in storage. The recent Human Alliance appreciation is a result of that. However, that said, when a couple of sealed Animated deluxes which usually command higher than average Animated prices - namely Swindle and Samurai Prowl - were offered in the UK, I jumped on them. I've wanted a sealed Swindle since he became one of my Ten Holy Animated Deluxe moulds (Blurr, Swindle, Cyb Optimus, Bumblebee, Lockdown, Rodimus, Ironhide, Earth Ratchet, Oil Slick, Arcee and Soundwave. Is that 11? Screw you). Samurai Prowl was bought because of the exceptionally good price. And that's it, really.
All the best
