Re: POST YOUR NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

Bit of a silly week for Transformers for me. Earthrise Scorponok Cor, he's a big lad. Nice and solid too. One of the things I didn't like about the last Titan I owned (and sold) Trypticon was how hollow and rattly he was. None of that with Scorpy (well, not quite true - some hollowness in the chest ...

Neat! The TR Perceptor mould is a good fit for the wily old buzzard.

DOTM Sideswipe (Walmart Exclusive) Picked up this fancy blue and yellow version of Sidearm Sideswipe. It's awesome and rolls really well in vehicle mode. I do like the look of this thing, with its big smiley grill. Such a happy car. Robot mode is capable of standing up, which makes it something of ...

Re: Your Latest Non-TF Toy Acquisitions

Lego CiTY 60221 Diving Yacht I've always wanted one of Lego's boats that float. I seem to have missed the boat, if you'll pardon the pun, on some of their smaller non-emergency service sets and this one looked charming. You get a boat, a couple of figures with diving gear and a bit of undersea terr...

Re: POST YOUR NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

Ooh I'm excited for Snapdragon (I have mine on pre-order) - he was my favourite when I was smaller. Looked after him for many years, then traded him in for a complete set of Combaticons, Groove, plus the Micromaster Decepticon Sports Car Patrol. I just really wanted to complete Defensor and the lad ...

Re: POST YOUR NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

I bought some robot gubbins from the Kapow! Sale :swirly: Reissue Gurafi, Noizu & Frenzy The two Dinosaur cassettes are really cute, but I can see why Hasbro haven't made a thing of the combined mode Deicbel. For one, it's pretty awful and for two, the two tapes connect together only by a port on th...

I think G2 Megs is one I'd have to see in hand to make a decision on. I want to like it, but it's not doing it for me.

Re: Latest DVD Purchases

Continuing my buy up of old British TV comedy before it gets cleansed and controlled from the online world. Peep Show series 1 - 7 Box Set - I recently rewatched the entire 9 series run on All4 and had forgotten how brilliant this was. Never did very well in the ratings - a lot of people didn't get ...

Re: Hi - the prodigal returns

I've never read Alignment. Is it any good? I can't stand crossovers. Mainly from having a big comics reader in the '90s, when everything had some multi-part mega-event. That and Marvel's 'events' from the 2000s have turned me off crossovers. That's not to say they can't be done well - I liked it whe...

Re: OFFICIAL TRANSFORMERS TOYS NEWS

It seems strange to say this, but that looks very toy-ish. I think I would have preferred the Siege mould in G2 colours. The Earthrise Megs seems kind of dull to me. Still, nice to see G2 get some continued love here and there.

I wish I had the time for all this! I appreciate the effort TFN have gone to to do this, just annoying I've been busy all weekend. Hopefully will be able to catch some of this at some point. Thanks for the heads up on the Kapow sale - picked up some bargains which I'm quite excited about :)

Bumblebee Cyberverse Adventures Stealth Force Fusion Flame Hot Rod

Name: Hot Rod Allegiance: Autobot Size Class: Warrior Class So, Hot Rod's got a cool new toy for Cyberverse, right? It's part of the Stealth Force sub-line of the Bumblebee Cyberverse Adventures (no idea) which basically means a black repaint. Because that's shorthand for stealth. Whatever, I saw t...

I've have mostly been picking up some unwanted guff off ebay: Beast Machines Mechatron I passed on the Beast Riders (stop your sniggering) when they first came out as they looked rubbish. Like the Deployers, they seemed to a sort of play accessories that couldn't really be used properly with other f...

Re: Covid 19 / everybody PANDEMIC

We've been kept in lockdown in Bradford for another week, but it's not made a blind bit of difference - people are just going out and about as normal. Hardly a surprise, given the government's excellent 'don't go in each others houses, but do do go to work, pubs, restaurants, the shops and other pub...

Re: Hi - the prodigal returns

IDW did end up pissing on their chips with the shared Universe stuff. 'Like Transformers? Here's some of our other toy properties no-one's cared about for 30 years that you might be interested in!' Thanks for that. And no Jem or My Little Pony? Rude. I'm catching up on all this stuff through the Hac...

Re: Cyberverse Spark Armour Sky-Byte

I've really no idea what they're doing with Cyberverse. I really like some of the designs and toys (even those weird Legends scaled ones that don't transform), but the build quality and pricing is just awful. I don't understand how they can make Rescue Bots and Bot Bots such quality items and then j...

Re: Anyone seen the Netflix show yet? (Minor spoilers)

None of the post-Prime shows have grabbed me, so this is another one to pass on. 6 episodes seems awful short. Why even bother? I'm guessing there wasn't the budget/ interest in doing a 'full' show (hence the no doubt cheaper voice 'talent'). Clips I've seen are all awful. Slow, plodding dialogue de...

Cyberverse Spark Armour Sky-Byte

Name: Sky-Byte Allegiance: Decepticon Drone: Driller Drive I was really excited to see a new Sky Byte toy. As a relatively modern character (from er, 20 years ago), it was just so refreshing to see someone other than the usual line up of important legacy characters. Cyberverse isn't really reinevnt...

Re: POST YOUR NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

Siege Micromasters Stakeout and Redhot, Direct Hit and Power Punch Picked these up because I'm a glutton for punishment. Stakeout and Red Hot look really nice, but are incredibly loose and floppy. Vehicle modes are decent. Stakeout fails to roll well. Direct Hit and Power Punch are both excellent. ...
