Re: re-issued Beast Wars

Although they've kind of come out with little fanfare, I think Hasbro's reissued them in celebration of Beast Wars 25th Anniversary.

Scorponok's due for a reissue (in what seem to be show accurate colours); not sure about the Transmetals, but I think they are rumoured.

Re: General LEGO discussion (inc. collectible minifigs)

Neat stuff, although I've never seriously considered Legoland Windsor because big builds where it's essentially just basic bricks but stacked to produce curves and textures tend to be a bit... boring, after the first few in a row? It's sort of the LEGO equivalent of pixel art or MS Paint drawing. A...

Re: POST YOUR NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

Kingdom Road Rage I was all set to pass this up, as the internet has said the Tracks mold is awful. I've ended up enjoying it, but I can completely understand why it's no-ones favourite. The design choices are questionable. I don't mind the clear plastic carapace that makes up most of the alt-mode ...

Re: Cyberverse/Bumblebee Dinobots

I suspect that like all the Cyberverse figures I've picked up, the designs and packaging will be nicer than the actual figures. Bit of a shame that Cyberverse seems to have a budget of nothing, so the toys are hollow and basic, but they somehow cost as much, if not more, than the Generations stuff a...

Re: Hey, what does everyone do for work now, anyway?

I'm still doing the same; handling complaints for water and sewerage company I work for. It's been an unbearable year and a bit, from that point of view. At one point, we were the only team still doing our full hours, as everything else got massively scaled back. Levels of contact from our customers...

Re: Hey, who wants to buy a lake house and turn it into a commune?

The sort of pickle only a pandemic, a huge shift in consumer behaviour, furloughing staff, Brexit (to an extent) and a skills shortage can cause. I don't know what it's like elsewhere in the world, but we find ourselves grappling with an acute shortage of lorry drivers to get stuff from a to b. A bi...

I has got some things in the post! Hasbro 35th Anniversary Reissue Astrotrain Not really on my priorities list, but it's in the original western toy colours and it was cheap, so yaaay. Studio Series 86 Gnaw Decent, but not perhaps as good as the Prime Wars version. The robot mode is excellent, with ...

Re: Hey, who wants to buy a lake house and turn it into a commune?

I can also cook and do gardening - I'm not super green fingered, but like having a go (helps to start with stuff that'll pretty much grow no matter what like potatoes). Quite willing to have a go at fixing/ building things (I love flatpacks, so chopping/ sawing wood and building stuff would be cool).

Re: Your Latest Non-TF Toy Acquisitions

Marvel Legends Iron Man 2020 Something of an anachronism these days, but like many Marvel UK fans, Arno Stark has some resonance for me. The figure is excellent. I love the deep burgundy and gold armour, it looks fantastic. The goofy cog shoulder designs make this 'future' version of Iron Man are g...

Cool. I like that Trypticon looks like he's chatting to an indifferent Metroplex :) Kingdom Rodimus Prime Honestly, a really nice figure and I like the trailer is a sizeable thing, so doesn't look crap like Earthrise Optimus' undersized effort or Kingdom Magnus' similarly too small trailer (Siege Ma...

Do love this one, he's probably the best of the RMs. If memory serves this is the metallic version? Looks like the same one I've got.

...no idea! He doesn't look especially shiny and the box is long gone. I think it's just the regular version.

Re: OFFICIAL TRANSFORMERS TOYS NEWS

I'd like Star Saber, but don't know that I want to sign up for this sort of exclusivity nonsense. It's probably a sign of how the toys/ action figure market is heading, mind. I think it's fine for stuff like Unicron, but for things that may have made it into a mainline anyway (particularly given the...

Aye, observed much the same - 'Pandemic's over' seems to be the prevailing attitude. I'm so used to wearing a mask these days, I'm quite happy to carry on. Noticed most shops have wound down their supplies of hand sanitiser and masks now. There's still signs up in shops encouraging people to wear ma...

Re: POST YOUR NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

Generations Selects G2 Megatron Lovely G2 repaint of the underwhelming Earthrise Megatron figure. I really liked the Siege figure, so am a bit baffled why this isn't as good. It's probably the silly sword/ tank barrel weapon and the slightly gormless face. Nice enough, and as I don't own a G2 Megat...

Re: Do people go elsewhere than eBay for old toys/comics these days?

I still use eBay :) I used to do listings, but since moving and needing to sell stuff relatively quickly for space, I've just listed as BINs with Best Offers. I've found it works well for TFs, action figures and licensed Lego sets. Less popular stuff (books, comics, etc) has just sat around. I've do...

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 ...
