Re: Covid 19 / everybody PANDEMIC

@Denyer - good shout. Thanks! Generally been alright with colds and stuff. Bit snuffly through stupid allergies more than anything else.

@Tantrum - hope your health continues to pick up. Sounds like you've had it rough :O

@Unicron - I like wearing a mask. I look like a ninja!

Re: Marvel Phase 4

i can't wait for cinemas to open. I love the little Light cinema we have in Bradford. Hipsters come in and introduce the film. Cute! I did consider streaming, but it's not the same and Amazon were charging more than cinemas do to watch at home, so no thanks. Don't know how excited I am for Marvel Ph...

Re: Covid 19 / everybody PANDEMIC

I've got my jabs booked in, so that's exciting. Also had my first MMR jab this week, as it turns out the Doctor's have no record of my having it (I can't remember having it either. Remember the polio thing, as you got that on a sugar cube, and having the Tetanus acupuncture at Secondary School). Tha...

Re: POST YOUR NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

Generations Selects Bug Bite Nifty repaint of Siege Cliffjumper with Netflix Bumblebee's head. Shame the Beetle alt-mode is absent, but otherwise a great looking figure. I miss the mad 'rad' tattoos of the BotCon version, but it seems ToyHax do a label sheet for that, so might have to see if I can ...

Re: Your Latest Non-TF Toy Acquisitions

Power Rangers Lightning Collection Ranger Slayer Saw this while looking through Comics And Cocktails website and thought it looked absolutely awesome. It was on clearance as the small blaster accessory is missing, and was an absolute bargain. Love the figure; it's got a dynamite mix of pink, black,...

Re: POST YOUR NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

Siege Netflix Deep Cover Blue version of a figure I picked up barely a month ago. Love this mold, it's awesome. Not bored of it yet, despite owning it three times over already. Has the Siege battle damage going on, which is alright. Not sure about the 'scratches' on the windscreen, but whatever. Pa...

Lots of Stuff about CW Devastator I had mixed feelings with this set. It's fun and quick to Transform, and I bet I'd have loved this as a nipper, but does all feel a bit Playskool. I missed the play features of the individual vehicles too! I can see with this, and to some extent, Predaking, that Ha...

Re: Covid 19 / everybody PANDEMIC

I'm chomping at the bit to get my jab. Five minutes into lockdown restrictions being eased and people are already wandering around without masks, forgetting to social distance and cluttering up Primark like it's going out of business. I just don't trust the public to look after their own health, as ...

Re: Remembering that our old toys actually exist!

Cybertron was a very chunky line, wasn't it? I do like a fair few of the designs. There's some terrible guff though, Crumplezone, Override, Skywarp, whatever Menasor and Metroplex were supposed to be... I liked the 'colony' concept of the series, that was a neat, with each planet having its own desi...

Re: OFFICIAL TRANSFORMERS TOYS NEWS

The lack of Predacons in Kingdom is killing me (Fossilizers don't count!). I get it though, good guys sell better and all that and there's the weaponizer gimmick to cram in. Just a shame, good guys are BORING!

Re: Remembering that our old toys actually exist!

I think I like the Cyberbeasts because they're a bit fancy and exotic, and because they don't shed chrome like glitter confetti. I love the Transmetal 2 aesthetic, but the only ones I have now are Blackarchnia and Iguanus*. All the others were starting to flake something rotten, so I sold them all o...

Re: unicron Armada, reflector and catalog brochures, promo posters

I find it funny that the Armada toy was retooled to look more like the character from the '86 Movie...when he already looked like that anyway. At least to my eyes. All the character traits are there, anyway. Beard, horns, massive wings, right colours. I remember Armada Unicron tanked over here - he ...

If you can still find, there's more than one 3P upgrade kit Neat! Might keep my eye out for one. Not essential, as I'm happy enough with the figure as it is. In new figure news: Kingdom Airrazor My my, what a beautiful figure she is. Lovely mix of plastic colours and paint to make her feel quality....

Re: Remembering that our old toys actually exist!

Beast Wars II Cyberbeasts! https://imgur.com/a/Tr1LjVR Took me the longest time to get these together. Not quite as mental as the Transmetal 2 Beast Wars figures, but I like the mish-mash of cybernetic parts with beasty-flesh. Really nice paint apps on all four of them too. I do find Max-B and Thrus...

DOTM Space Case Retool and redeco of the HFTD Terradive mold, here in translucent blue. I just really wanted on. He's sparkly blue translucent plastic and has a big pointy fork and a cross looking face. Love it. Generations Thrilling 30 Blitzwing Had it and sold it. Bought it again. I dunno, I know...

Re: Remembering that our old toys actually exist!

I'd love Universe Silverbolt and the Ramulus repaint (Longhorn?). Silverbolt is an awesome awesome toy (and I like the character too). I did find too many of the Fuzors fell into the ugly-weird end of things. Airhammer and Noctorro spring instantly to mind. The mix of beasts wasn't successful in all...

Re: Is the Dreamwave run available digitally?

Pretty much. I'd quite like to read Energon again, as it was pretty decent. All my paper copies are long gone though. Always thought it was a shame that Hachette didn't get more of the G1 stuff from DW done. ALthough given how awful it turned out, maybe that's a good thing.

Re: POST YOUR NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

Still, 79 after a triple heart by-pass 16 years ago isn't bad going. And if nothing else, I'm glad it was quick for him. If that doesn't all sound too flippant. I think it's a healthy way of looking at it. Sorry to hear anyway. Having parents who refused to give up smoking there's going to be an el...

Re: Covid 19 / everybody PANDEMIC

...I'm hoping I get my jab at all. Things are not looking great on the supply front, thanks to recent scrapes and guff involving the EU, which I can't even be bothered to get into. Suffice it to say, we're still reliant on them for imports, but now there's a hold up. All of which doesn't fill me wit...

Masterpiece MP39+ Spin Out Another Diaclone homage! Having spent time playing with Cordon, I'm a lot more comfortable handling this mould now and appreciate it's cleverness and complexity. The Turbo Tuning Lambo mould looks stunning in this bright red, although the paint/plastic matching isn't so g...
