Re: [The video game thread]

A small sale and I downloaded the last map for theHunter: Vurhonga Savanna . Haven't played it yet, but I will in time. There's also the Days of Play Playstation sale starting tomorrow here in the States, so i will check that out (not that I need any more games, but c'mon). And if I hadn't mentioned...

Re: POST YOUR NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

Cliffjumper is a lot of fun. Just a nice lil boy. You soon forget about his size when you're whooshing him around on his skis. He surely is! Out of my new Transformers, he's the one I fiddle with the most. I love that your 7 year old can see the value in Cliffjumper that most of our fandom has comp...

Re: General LEGO discussion (inc. collectible minifigs)

Got 76141 Thanos Mech at Dollar General. Like the Classic set I mentioned above, it has a sticker saying it's only intended for sale at Dollar General. I find it hard to believe that DG would get not only a LEGO exclusive, but a Marvel exclusive Unless there's something special about that particula...

Re: POST YOUR NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

Haven't bought a TF in a while, but came across Earthrise Wheeljack and Cliffjumper . Both are nice. Solid figures with good articulation and simple transformations. Wheeljack is quite good, and I like that he's a slightly off-white. Nice paint apps too. It's been said here before: Cliffjumper is ti...

Re: [The video game thread]

Craving some sports these days, I picked up NBA 2K20 for Switch. It's NBA... with a new year. I probably won't be able to tell much difference yet between this and 2K19, but hey, new is better! Sure, the game will look much nicer and run at 60 fps on my PS4, but I enjoy the portability of the Switch...

Re: Your Latest Non-TF Toy Acquisitions

A few Lego things over the last handful of weeks: Major Vonreg's Tie Interceptor (75240): Nice ship, great colors, fun build. Not a whole lot of play features aside from swooshing and missile shooting, but that's to be expected. The wing design is awesome and very solid for swooshing. Came with Vonr...

Re: General LEGO discussion (inc. collectible minifigs)

Inspired by some of Tantrum's recent customs, plus I haven't done any customs myself lately, I've made a couple things. First is Darth Vader's Tie fighter, which I scavenged parts off of my old Tie Fighter 7263 as well as parts I had on hand. I used a basis of the older 8017 set mostly because I had...

Re: [The video game thread]

I've now been able to play Fishing Sim World a little bit, and I'm hooked! (har har) Nah, it's a pretty good fishing game, but nothing I would pay full price for. The visuals are pretty decent, even if the character creator leaves a lot to be desired. The fishing mechanics are quite fun though, once...

Re: General LEGO discussion (inc. collectible minifigs)

Nice! You should post up some pictures at some point, I would be curious to see what it looks like. I haven't done any MOC work with Lego in a long time. I did a small one with the kids a month-ish ago, inspired by theHunter on PS4. We made a little hunting scene with an elevated hunting stand and s...

Re: What TV shows are you watching thread.

I only wish on Lego Masters that they would show more tricks on how to build certain aspects of the creators's builds. There's a whole slew of techniques these people use, and it would be interesting to see how it works. There's always internet research you can do, but a small tidbit of how to do th...

Re: General LEGO discussion (inc. collectible minifigs)

A couple large Lego Star Wars ships just joined my fleet! 75257 Millennium Falcon : Excellent ship. 1351 pieces and a fun build that the kids helped me with. The whole thing is really sturdy, as the base is made mainly of interconnected Technic pieces. The typical gaps on the top are minimized with ...

Re: Your Latest Non-TF Toy Acquisitions

Two big Lego Star Wars ships: 75257 Millennium Falcon : Excellent ship. Lots of pieces and a fun build. Incredibly sturdy too. The typical gaps on the top are minimized and you can fit a ton of minifigs in the inside. The cockpit is a little cramped though. Came with Lando, Chewie, Finn, C-3PO, R2-D...

Re: What TV shows are you watching thread.

Watched The Mandalorian some time ago. It was enjoyable, but I don't know if it's something you need to see. For a live action show, it's pretty good. It's Star Wars, but not earth shattering. The Child is cute as hell though. Also continuing The Clone Wars , simply because we watched the other 6 se...

I can't remember what or when I did a review last, so I'll give a shot at Earthrise Starscream.

Another sale, another dip into the wallet! Fishing Sim World Pro Tour (PS4) + Lake Dylan DLC : Haven't played it just yet, but the price was right and it has decent reviews. I haven't been too excited about Fishing Planet since it requires a constant internet connection and it's basically shore fish...

Proofed and ready. I added a bullet list format to your color listing in the beginning. If you don't like the look, it can be removed. :up:

Proofed and ready for upload. Nice review! I really like this mold, though I possibly like Hot Shot better due to the color palette. Either way, great fun!

Lego 75153 AT-ST: Bought used from a local store. Great AT-ST with a rotating hull and 3 good minifigs including Baze Malbus, all from Rogue One. Came pre-assembled, since that's how they display them in store for purchase. Lego 75152 Imperial Assault Hover Tank: Same as above, but disassembled in ...

Re: POST YOUR NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

Earthrise Starscream . A very fine figure for sure, but I'm also a bit disappointed. The great parts are the general aesthetic and detailing, the articulation, a true cockpit in the chest, smooth(ish) transformation, and finally having a proper Voyager-class F-15 Starscream. The downsides being tha...
