Re: Remembering that our old toys actually exist!

I think I have Delta Seeker and X-Gunner - the Robot Masters two pack lads? Horrible clashing colours, but strangely appealing. I agree, the Cyberjets are pretty awesome. Although I think the toys had their sides switched as Strafe (the Camo one?) had Decepticon symbols on his tailfins. Or at least ...

Re: Marvel Phase 4

Been out to the pictures twice! It were alright. Saw A Quiet Place part II which was unbearably tense. Both in terms of what was on screen and the atmosphere in the cinema. It was everyone's first time back, and a lot of people were crammed in as the Vue in Leeds where I went had the worse luck of a...

Re: Latest Music Purchases.

Woo I've been to the record shop a few times since March... Evanescence - 'The Bitter Truth' (2021) Fancy boxset release that comes with a journal, some prints, the album itself and a cassette of demos and farting about in the studio. Album itself is alright. After Synthesis hinted at an interesting...

Re: POST YOUR NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

Kingdom Galvatron Behold...Galvatron! I was going to hang on for the Selects version because Marvel UK, but decided the extra tenner that costs wasn't worth it (and I don't like the snot green Matrix). Besides which, the purple has always really suited Galvatron and it looks brilliant in person. Mi...

Re: Covid 19 / everybody PANDEMIC

Yup. The mask thing drives me bananas. Like you, we've decided this Monday was "freedom day" so now no-one gives a ****. Our feeble NHS Covid-App is pinging people like crazy (who'd have thought that having so many more people out and about would mean there's a greater risk of transmission/ spread a...

Re: Human being roll call

I'm still here also. Hello! Hope you're all alright :) I'm currently sitting on a pet cooling mat I bought to cope with this silly heat.

I don't understand TikTok. Something else I'm too old to understand.

Re: OFFICIAL TRANSFORMERS TOYS NEWS

I think I'd be more excited for Fangry if he was a brand new mold. Between Boxsets and Exclusives, it's been a torrid time to be a Transformers fan. I think it's made worse by Hasbro turning out some excellent product. I can kind of see the point of some of the box-sets, selling more minor character...

Re: POST YOUR NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

Hardcore cartoon fans are buying six of them to make an army of Sweeps, of course. How boring. As if Hasbro wasn't going to wring some more money out of such an obvious reuse. Earthrise Decepticon Clones Basically what Takara did. Putting figures that are part of a set together in a box. These are ...

Re: Which characters are you still waiting for a good toy of?

Hasbro are doing Galvatron in toy colours, which as far as the comics go is close enough. It'll do me, anyway :P I'd second seeing some of the Euro G1 characters. Rotorstorm was a treat and I'd love to see the likes of Clench and the Stormtroopers (Rage, Drench and, uh, the other two), and Skyquake ...

Re: POST YOUR NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

Studio Series 86 Kup Ah, the flinty old warrior. This is nice. I liked the Titans Return toy but I like having the character looking something like without the Titan Master gimmick. The robot mode is nice and clean, so much so you wonder if this thing actually transforms. The pop off limbs is a fun...

Re: WFC Kingdom Cyclonus question

Mine's got the Decepticon sigil tampo'd on his chest in robot mode. There are a terrific amount of KOs about at the moment, but seems to be mainly Live Action Movie stuff and Masterpiece. Not seen any of the Siege stuff bootlegged ...yet.

Re: Covid 19 / everybody PANDEMIC

Since the shops opened, seen a lot of folk now just paying lip service to wearing masks. Or should that be chin service, given that most people seem to be wearing them like they're stopping their jaws falling off. Meanwhile, the Delta variant continues it's merry rampage thanks to our superb border ...

Studio Series 86 Jazz Had my eye on Jazz for a bit, and what a great figure he is! The robot mode is very tidy and he poses like a champ. Comes with his blaster thing and looks like a proper dude. Transformation is pretty inventive, taking what the original did and just fancying it up a bit. I like...

Re: POST YOUR NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

The number of folks you see on other sites pining for an "Earth-mode" retool kind of baffles me, though. It already looks like an Earth car so unless they're going to make him a licensed Countach, how would it be any different? You'll be pleased to know one is showing up as an Amazon exclusive with...

Yup. All sorts of shenanigans going on. Employers Furloughing staff, claiming loans and still making staff work. Fun times. Can hardly say we managed things much better.

The aim was to create a system where medical records could be easily accessed when people were admitted to hospital. Like everything else, the gover...

Generations Selects Tigertrack This nicely scratches the itch I've had for this figure for such a long time. Of all the funny G1 repaints of the 2000s, this is the one I'd wanted since I clapped eyes on it. I like the MP version but those things aren't fun to play with. This is just lovely. Nice br...

Re: Remembering that our old toys actually exist!

...I didn't mind Optimal Optimus feeble alt modes. The size and bling were enough for me, and I liked the light up laser guns. The 'blast shields' are annoying though and I see the POTP figure loses those, which are no great loss. I was just indifferent to the POTP version, I didn't care about it on...

Re: OFFICIAL TRANSFORMERS TOYS NEWS

I suppose the kind of fan questions at these things are going to skew more towards G1 / heritage stuff, because that's the kind of stuff that dominates fandom. Interesting that Hasbro weren't sure a full SS86 line would be a goer, so hedged their bets by sticking some in Kingdoms. Would have made mo...
