Slight correction to the holiday dates - I'm only going to be staying until January 6th, as classes begin on the 7th, and I suppose I shouldn't be missing them.
It looks like I'm going to become the Official Supplier of Robot Goodness to the V Forum, as Diamond will no longer be shipping any of the Transformers mini-series to any location outside of North America. And there's no UK distributor yet (and even when one is found, you can be sure that they'll resize the comic to the standard UK comic size), so British readers have to find black market back channels to get their Giant Robots fix.
Someone lock my credit cards away. Yes, I know they serve no use. But they're so cute. Just try and tell me you don't want to see Mr. Pink trying to outrace Amelie on a Tron lightcycle. You can't, can you?
