Re: POST YOUR NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

I'm behind others on piecing together the Studio Series Devy, but yesterday I got SS 42 Long Haul and SS 41 Scrapmetal in the mail. Due to the heavily overpriced aftermarket costs, I went the route of KO's for these. I would prefer to have the real ones, and honestly I was worried that the quality w...

Re: [The video game thread]

I only found that I could play Skyrim via Switch. At least it was portable, I could play for short chunks, and also long chunks here and there. Good game, IMO, but I likely won't play a second time. I also bought Overcooked! on the Switch last week on a good sale. Mostly because my kids played it at...

Re: POST YOUR NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

After getting SS Mixmaster, I've been impressed enough to hunt down the rest for SS Devy. I was able to find SS 60 Scrapper and SS 55 Scavenger at Walmart the other day. I like them both. Scavenger has such a strange design, but it's really quite fun. The lower wheel rotates well on carpet and the a...

Re: POST YOUR NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

SS 49 Bumblebee Nice figure. I basically feel the same way about this figure as SkyQuake mentioned, so there's no need to retread that. :up: SS 51 Soundwave Another good solid figure. The transformation is simpler than other SS figures I have, but in a good way. Even though he doesn't show much col...

Re: Your Latest Non-TF Toy Acquisitions

Lego Speed Champions! How did I not know this line existed? My son bought the 75891 Chevy Camaro (like a stock car), which I thought was rather solid and great looking. So in order to race him, I picked up the 75890 Ferrari F40 . Both cars are really slick, and fun to build. To increase our garage, ...

Re: POST YOUR NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

My kids got me a new toy for Father's Day (which seems funny, right?): Studio Series 53 Mixmaster . Quite nice, and I kinda like his insect-like robot mode. I first thought the transformation/pegging was going to be a chore like it can be with SS Barricade, but I figured it out and he snaps together...

Re: [The video game thread]

A couple new pickups over the last few weeks: Ratchet & Clank (PS4): Half off sale. I wanted something lighthearted to play with the kids, and it does the job. God of War (PS4): Also half off, but on disc through Amazon. Not kid friendly (LOL) but a very good game. Haven't played too much of it, but...

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...
