Re: POST YOUR NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

Fans Hobby Master Builder MB-12 Athena. Very much older voyager or MP scale and thus not going next to the other Headmaster Juniors I was going to display her with. Very white plastic -- keep away from sunlight and that may not be enough. Very fucking fragile ankle joints, either it was a freak cast...

Re: POST YOUR NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

Earthrise Scorponok. If you're short on space, in BFS alt-mode the tail assembly will wedge upright behind him at 90 degrees. The claws add to the general sprawl. I think I need to find a cake cooling rack or something so that I can rise him a bit and still print without moving him every time. Not t...

If it is I'm guessing the ratio of vehicle to animal alt-modes will be about 50% animals.

I've just had a bounce from cox.net saying that the mailbox doesn't exist, which would explain why nothing was getting through. Did you change the email address at all?

I've just tested and the forum's able to send email and I've received the test -- the trouble is a lot of email providers tend to block forum notifications by default. If you've got the option of whitelisting tfarchive AT gmail DOT com it's worth a try, but I'm not sure Cox would give the option. An...

Yeah, it's a terrible costume but fits with the era of BoP I was going for -- had to get a base though, the balance is terrible. The more recent two pack with Peej is pretty good too... in fact a lot of the New 52 line are decent. Shame about the comics.

"Hammerstein" style 1995 Judge Dredd movie ABC Warrior prop photos

Someone linked this, and it's probably another of my niche interests like 40K LEGO but the original is currently for sale so there are some neat high resolution pics you wouldn't normally get to see -- https://propstore.com/product/judge-dredd-1995/full-size-abc-warrior-robot-with-animatronic-remote...

This prototype? -- https://i.imgur.com/ukFOsqK.jpg -- I'd definitely have bought one. https://i.imgur.com/ukFOsqK.jpg For my money of the ones that have actually been produced, the iGear Delicate Warrior is a lot better than the photos here suggest; http://wikialpha.org/wiki/Delicate_Warrior Actuall...

Re: POST YOUR NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

A store holding out for a street date for something already put onto the shelves would be the end of my custom, that's for sure. the thing that makes me so impressed with it is how they managed to evoke the original Grimlock figure. Mmm, that's why I've actually got it out on a shelf over any number...

Re: POST YOUR NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

as an update of the original G1 Grimlock figure, he looks really good. Sometimes giving into curiousity can be a good thing. Which size class? The bigger one looks okay enough in dino mode to display (despite them not bothering with a jaw) but the small one they didn't bother with the dino arms eit...

Re: POST YOUR NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

The Kubian "Cool Become Brave" KO CW Devastator -- standing with the shoulders a couple of cm taller than CW Bruticus, I'd recommend it as a CHUG display choice. It really shows up design issues with the tabbing in the original mould though, and the likelihood is some of them will wear or snap if yo...

Maybe I'm under-thinking this, but I'd imagine if anything it may be more straightforward in the US -- refuse critical vaccinations and health insurance be invalidated.

Re: Latest DVD Purchases

Vaguely remember VI (The Freaks) being alright as a kid. Scooby Doo on Zombie Island, some more old Cradle of Filth discs to go with PanDaemonAeon (Heavy, Left-Handed and Candid + Peace Through Superior Firepower) and a box set of Victorian Kitchen Gardens plus the two BBC series that followed it.

Re: POST YOUR NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

True, and I suppose there'll be Omega/Devastator/Predaking displays out there too by people who mainly collect legend, voyager or MP car class who swell the numbers by Omega being the only Autobot that fits. Our local store (Smyths) must have sold some of them at full price, ditto Trypticon and expe...

Re: POST YOUR NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

I think you're their ideal customer... personally I don't think the gestalts and Omega fit at the titan class size point, it's just the four citybots, but if you're skipping those it fits into a collection better. Not sure where the hell I'm going to fit Scorponok in scorpion mode. Possibly displaci...

Re: OFFICIAL TRANSFORMERS TOYS NEWS

Not sure you could get a passable Centurion out of existing TFs unless it was a pretender shell, regular action figures might be a better base. Rotorstorm's been in comics recently enough for some crossover sales. This is just half-arsed planning when they've gone to the trouble of weapon paint apps...

Re: OFFICIAL TRANSFORMERS TOYS NEWS

It's like they don't get any feedback first, isn't it? Most people will have thought a) green Centurion droid, and b) Spinister's head is too distinctive so for a repaint that'll sell include one in the original mould.
