Can I retire from the human race and pick a new one? People (other than the ones that haven't) have more or less just been disappointing so far.

Re: Covid 19 / everybody PANDEMIC

Bottom line for me is: try to get this bunch of the (deleted expletive) entitled to obey anything they’re told. Should the government have moved faster? Yes. Would it have made a difference? Possibly... i salute NZ, since getting humans to comply with anything official is worse than herding cats. No...

Re: Covid 19 / everybody PANDEMIC

What Denyer said... I’m not blaming the government, if I’m honest, for more than mixed messages given out as the Titanic is sinking; reacting to an impossible situation and finding out a few more lifeboats would’ve been nice. I’m just so angry with the self-centred bunch of oiks who carry on as if t...

Re: Hi - the prodigal returns

For a retro book, the modern digital colouring looked off to me. I think if it had the old 'flat' colouring you used to get in the '80s and early '90s, it would have looked much more the part for the era it was trying to represent. Since I have the series in digital format, I’m happy with the colou...

Re: Hi - the prodigal returns

Just done some serious catching up and my bank account is weeping... Grabbed a lot of TF stuff on ComiXology and got stuck in... MTMTE and Lost Light are clever, tongue-in-cheek and generally well-crafted. Loved the moment Megs was pushed to say Optimus’ iconic line and the quantum stuffs going quan...

Re: Covid 19 / everybody PANDEMIC

We pretty much escaped the major wave of horror here in Leicester/shire, but ended up being placed in two extra weeks of lockdown when cases suddenly rose. It ended up highlighting the clothing industry sweatshops everyone knew did not exist (since about 1981, if I recall right from my Unemployment ...

Re: POST YOUR NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

Netflix Seige Autobot Mirage and Decepticon Mirage. My first acquisitions since forever, so I'm damned well posting here. Former from Amazon and the latter, at rip-off price, from eBay, because my local Smyths Toystore had none and the website would not redirect any by post from such Primus-forsaken...

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

It was the lips. Seriously. The lips. LIke Megatron was actually Overlord wearing the ol' bucket. I keep remembering the lips. It's terifying. Other than that: yeah, tolerable. Voices okay, within tolerable limits. The big McGuffin and additional McGuffins everywhere. Then the sudden reveal that the...

Obviously, it all went quiet, because they knew I wasn’t paying attention.

Well, then: here’s hoping the next movies and series in the franchise bring joy, wonder and fun :grin:

Re: How popular are Licorice Allsorts?

“A person dressed like a chemist then appears and scoops some out into some scales (old ones, done in pounds and ounces) and gives you them in a paper bag and you pay in shillings and pence.”

Ye gods, that’s expensive. I used to pay 3d for a bag of sweets out of the jar that’d last all week!

Re: How popular are Licorice Allsorts?

Licorice? Licorice? Errrgh yuck! Piers Anthony got it spot, having Smash Ogre eat his way out of his all-time nightmare: licorice horse poop. I have to confess, though, that since I got my hands (briefly) on real chocolate - the real deal - the handmade stuff - I don't like anything else. I sincerel...

Just saying hi and hoping you're all keeping well :wave:

Have just acquired a Seige Mirage and I'm thinking: time to return to Cybertron. What have I missed, guys/gals?

I picked up a portable Seagate 2TB for the gaming laptop as the desktop one is a brick: a really good quality brick. That's in: just as big as and heavy as.

Spent out. Will be saving for a new drive to pop in the gaming pc.
