Re: So I'm pretty much out of the fandom at this point

Aww thanks, Auntie Slag :) And hello Knightdramon! Good to hear from you again. I think as life moves on, it is harder to keep the enthusiasm going. I'm exhausted from work at the moment, as it's a strange and stressful time, but it's nice to come here and just blah. Even if I don't have anything in...

Re: Latest Music Purchases.

The B-52s are AMAZING. One of the greatest bands ever in the world ever. I love their 'Mesopotamia' and 'Whammy' albums, still to track down their first one, so thanks for the nod! Found some amusing mash-ups with them and Slayer and Slipknot on YouTube, which work better than they should (Search 'R...

Siege Megatron

Which is an odd thing to say for the revolutionary-cum-dictator. He is after all, responsibl...

Re: Covid 19 / everybody PANDEMIC

Boris has told us all to stay indoors now, after everyone went outside at the weekend without thinking.

Mitchell & Webb look more prophetic by the day....

Re: Doctor Who Series 12 Thread

I could do without Gallifrey too. I liked that it was kept in the distance in the classic run. It is a bit disappointing to have it all smashed up again, but it's only the Timelord citadel that's been done in, not the entire planet (at least that how it looked to me), so there's scope to tell differ...

Re: Covid 19 / everybody PANDEMIC

I've read some stuff shows that pollution levels in China and Italy have dropped, and the rivers in Venice have improved in quality. So there's some good news that limited human activity helps improve things for the environment. Bet climate change deniers love that... :P Been out for a walk today, w...

Siege Storm Cloud & Visper

Name: Storm Cloud & Vipser Allegiance: Decepticon Size Class: Micromasters The Decepticon Air Strike Patrol were an awesome group of bully boys. They had sleek jet forms (er, well expect for Tailwind) and cool robot modes. So it is actually quite nice to see the team revisited for Siege. They're mo...

Re: Covid 19 / everybody PANDEMIC

We've just massively scaled back on all the work we're doing, just concentrating on urgent water supply and sewerage supply issues. Which is fine, but meant we've cancelled all non-essential work, which includes fitting meters to help customers reduce their bills (for those unaware, due to the gradu...

Re: Cyberverse actually has some neat new characters and designs, doesn't it? (Hammerbyte)

Those two look really cool! I'll keep an eye out for them. Although I expect I'll be disappointed by the price point. Cyberverse toys seem very expensive for what they are.

Yeah, also intentionally screwing employers out of business insurance by not mandating closures. Which I'm pleased to see they've thought about a bit overnight. Just been checking my emails and it's full of businesses saying they're closing until whenever. We got told at work today that as we're an...

Re: Siege Spinister

Spinister is awesome. One of the best of the Siege line. Have to say, I've generally not minded the price hike for Siege (with one or two exceptions) as the figures have, overall, felt like quality bits of work (although I've really kept to characters I want). I certainly feel better paying this sor...

Re: Covid 19 / everybody PANDEMIC

I think my favourite has been Boris' helpfully vague advice today, which basically boiled down to 'people should start isolating at some point and don't go to the pub'. Well, cheers.

Re: She-Ra / Raccoons / Voltron reboots

Well, if it's skewing younger then that's fine and dandy. Honestly, I think it's great to have these shows still around in one form or another, even if it does whiff of no-one having any great new ideas. They might not appeal to me, and that's right and proper. And the original's still out there if ...

Re: She-Ra / Raccoons / Voltron reboots

Is the new She-Ra Netflix or something? I think I'd be disappointed by it. I loved the original (thought it was much better than He-Man) and the premise, with the Horde having over-run Etheria.
