Studio Series Ironhide: an absolute beaut on the whole. Really nails the chest (instead of having it as floating wings or cheaty parts), subtle paint apps, great weaponry, love the folding bits on the legs. The "whatever" gaps on the tail end of the Top Kick are a bit cheap but yeah. Maybe a bit mas...

Recent-ish buys, mainly from Studio Series, which is abysmal in terms of value for money for normal people but great for me: 74 Bee: lovely details but some of the transformation is a pain; not sure if I bummed out on QC but the windscreen/roof section detaches far too easily and it's a shame the gu...

Rewatching Red Dwarf after charidee shop find of the Just the Shows DVDs. Most of it stands up very well despite the few dumb plots but i swear 7 & 8 get worse every single time I see them.

Yup, watching the Sanctum. Plausible fudge IMO - in the comics it's rare for him to leave it full stop no matter what. Respectable workarounds for Clint and Scott too. Valkyrie is the biggest elephant - one of the producers or directors have said she left the Asgardian ship with civilians on escape ...

Yep, this could work. TBH scaling things back was something that should have been done for AOE rather than this need to get bigger and sillier every film, resulting in the genuine turd of TLK. This goes for cheap shots galore with its' High Noon character models and Stranger Things 180g Vinyl Vaporw...

Caught up on Marvel Phase 3.1 or whatever it's called. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 - bantzy. Fun action comedy, cast growing nicely into their parts largely, ridiculously over-powerful Yondu, obvious plot, bit of obviousness, some good jokes, Nebula still might be the worst 'character' in the whol...

Just like with Hasbro trying to push Jem or Rom or MASK or whatever...did anyone actually ask for this? The Jem film is amazing; if for nothing else that they get Juliette Lewis in it and don't let her sing. The thing is it seems very rare for these revivals to really take off. Transformers and MLP...

Young Justice getting a third season has promise -- S2 was rather grim and too bound up in overall arc but hopefully it'll get back to the heights of S1. Eagerly awaiting a Firestick to catch up on the show. This Roar thing might be fun taken as a fan-made YouTube deal -- presented in those terms i...

To be fair there are a couple of bits of the Countach that look a bit cruder than more recent figures, like how you can spit through the chest, and his Golem head always grates as a really crap last minute design fix. I wouldn't be gauche enough to spend 3P money on it but if T-T make it through the...

With a shit name.

I'm hoping the Chinese get their nefarious hands on the Sunstreaker mould, I could go for a cheap Random Policing Item as a comparison with Badcube Sunthing then.

If people want Thundercats to be an ongoing thing, this is what it needs to do. Yeah; and the thing is if it takes off there'll be a chance of some trickle-down for the TC equivalent of the Geewuners, just like there has been from the Bay films or those dippy films with the same names as the Marvel...

It's already seriously upset a fair few fat thirty-somethings who seem to think kids TV shows should be carbon copies of everything they watched as a child (because they turned out to be real winners), which means I'm all in favour of it. IIRC Thundercats tried the fan-friendly broody update thing a...

It's not that bad, once you headcanon Andy Dwyer over Peter Quill and accept that the female characters are a post-Buffy PC blandness overload. It's certainly better than either of the first two Avengers films, which I realise is a low bar.
