Anyone watch Masters of the Universe Revelation? [spoilers]

Starting with the negative... it really suffers from the Netflix approach of releasing a few episodes, a long wait and releasing more. The first five gets it to the point of starting act 2 and a fight back by the good guys, with a little bit of a cliff hanger that'll probably be of the old Who varie...

Re: POST YOUR NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

My Doubledealer's knee detached because I was mistransforming him. It's not a permanent problem, just a peg sliding out of a joint. But, the sculpt of the leg make it a pain to slide back on. What does yours look like? As far as I can tell the mushroom peg (which does slide slightly) would take for...

Re: POST YOUR NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

I'd call it a success for our very limited demographic and a fragile what-the-hell-were-they-thinking mess no kid is going to get at the price. No wonder House of Fraser cleared the Primes and was stuck with these. Folded and got the spy patrol cassette re-colours pack to go with Doubledealer. If h...

Re: Latest DVD Purchases

Not feeling particularity human. Unsure if many people buy physical media any more. Picked up a 4K of Coppola's Dracula to see if I can get a good enough quality still of the "young Dracula" painting -- http://paintingsinmovies.com/m/view/id/173 -- to get a print of it. Not sure if the drive I've go...

Re: POST YOUR NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

Airrazor and Warpath. Also should have a cheap Doubledealer coming from someone who got a duplicate in the House of Fraser sale. Which is still on, by the way, but appears to just have voyagers left as far as Earthrise goes. And it's random which one they send. https://www.houseoffraser.co.uk/search...

Re: OFFICIAL TRANSFORMERS TOYS NEWS

It must work, because they keep doing it, but it doesn't make any sense to me. Somehow not just work, but justify additional tooling. Highly doubt I'll bother picking up the set unless it gets clearanced to B&M over here or something similar but if I do will keep people here in mind for the other f...

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

Agree on all of Firecons, Triggercons, Stalker, Thunderwing and Leader class Scorpy. I'd like to have seen full Micromaster teams at a higher price point. Some of them like the Rescue Patrol and Astro Squad have a lot of nostalgia. A few modern Pretenders at voyager size (and probably leader price t...

Re: [FAN EDIT] Transformers (1986) - Prime lives!

First experience probably counts for a lot. I think I may have seen the Ladybird book adaptation first, which doesn't have the same impact, followed by the UK home video release that has a Victor Caroli voiceover promising that the story isn't over and Prime will return. Even the film as released ha...

Re: Covid 19 / everybody PANDEMIC

I expect investigations into Benefit Fraud committed during the pandemic will go about as well as HMRC looking into all those companies claimed government hardship loans that they definitely needed. SFIS predates the pandemic by years. It ties in with the IDS era of UC and all of the representation...

Re: Remembering that our old toys actually exist!

I appreciate the puzzle of them as much as something say, like a rubiks cube (as I am sure many people do) without necessarily being able to 'see' how the parts are going to end up. Before and after photos have certainly gotten handier as designs have gotten more complex -- too much lining up panel...

Re: [FAN EDIT] Transformers (1986) - Prime lives!

Archive.org isn't much different from any other file host in that respect, it just happens to keep abandonware and public interest content up longer through general acceptance. The film's reissued regularly these days and it's unlikely that relatively short edits would count as transformative fair u...

Re: Covid 19 / everybody PANDEMIC

Benefit investigation went from being coordinated by local authorities (where it was quite effective, despite financial disincentives built into the model -- effectively they lost out for each fraud successfully pursued) to most of the investigators being TUPEd over to the DWP. Ex-colleagues who mad...

Re: Covid 19 / everybody PANDEMIC

Yeah, particularly their history of handling of concepts like not reallocating NINOs and what's happened to fraud referral since they absorbed benefit investigation staff. And the first couple of reviews of UC by the NAO were masterfully written. I'd prefer less information (with any grade of pseudo...
