Re: [The video game thread]

Another sale, another dip into the wallet! Fishing Sim World Pro Tour (PS4) + Lake Dylan DLC : Haven't played it just yet, but the price was right and it has decent reviews. I haven't been too excited about Fishing Planet since it requires a constant internet connection and it's basically shore fish...

Proofed and ready. I added a bullet list format to your color listing in the beginning. If you don't like the look, it can be removed. :up:

Re: Siege Hound

Proofed and ready for upload. Nice review! I really like this mold, though I possibly like Hot Shot better due to the color palette. Either way, great fun!

Re: Your Latest Non-TF Toy Acquisitions

Lego 75153 AT-ST: Bought used from a local store. Great AT-ST with a rotating hull and 3 good minifigs including Baze Malbus, all from Rogue One. Came pre-assembled, since that's how they display them in store for purchase. Lego 75152 Imperial Assault Hover Tank: Same as above, but disassembled in ...

Re: POST YOUR NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

Earthrise Starscream . A very fine figure for sure, but I'm also a bit disappointed. The great parts are the general aesthetic and detailing, the articulation, a true cockpit in the chest, smooth(ish) transformation, and finally having a proper Voyager-class F-15 Starscream. The downsides being tha...

Re: NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

The G1 toy's rifle is rendered really well and the wrist missile is a nice addition, but by far the most fun thing about this toy is the giant claw game thing that you can replace one of his hands with. Hasbro seem incapable of creativity or fun for it's own sake these days, so I'm assuming it's so...

Re: General LEGO discussion (inc. collectible minifigs)

All right, after 'eyeing' the Lego Star Wars 75155 U-Wing Fighter for about 2 minutes, I had the cash to grab it. Luckily the local shop still had it on the shelf. I'm never in that store long enough to know how fast the used sets stick around. Got it at a great price (compared to what I could find ...

Re: Your Latest Non-TF Toy Acquisitions

Lego Star Wars 75155 U-Wing Fighter from a local shop. Got it used at a great price, with all the minifigs. Near as I can tell, it's only missing the two stud shooters from the inside troop compartment, which should be easy to replace. Great quality too. The ship itself is pretty fun, and bigger th...

Re: So I'm pretty much out of the fandom at this point

I'm not dead yet! My fandom has waned though. I really enjoyed some of the recent toy lines (mostly Generations), and last year I was able to catch up on a bunch of the comics. After a while though, I found my shelves to be too cluttered, so I've had to 'trim back'. Additionally, I wish I could be m...

Re: General LEGO discussion (inc. collectible minifigs)

A bit of a Lego Star Wars haul lately for me: 75172 Y-Wing : From the Rogue One line. I like the design of this one much more than the newer Resistance model from Rise of Skywalker, even though the cost was identical. To me, this is a Y-Wing. The build was fun and decently complex. It's got some nic...

Re: [The video game thread]

Do it, you won't regret it! Yeah, Spidey is easily worth dropping $20 on! It's kept me busy for a month and I'm pretty sure the content will run out before my interest does. I think it might be the best game I've played in a decade or more. Yep, bought Spidey on PS4. Haven't played it yet because o...

Re: General LEGO discussion (inc. collectible minifigs)

Lego Star Wars 75218 Ordered this online since the price was right. Very nice model of the T-65 X-Wing, and I love the S-Foil mechanism. The only issues are the short laser cannons and the missile launchers on the ends of the wings. These are minor things though, as I really love all this set has t...

Lego Star Wars 75218

Ordered this online since the price was right. It comes with Luke Skywalker/R2-D2 as well as Biggs Darklighter/R2-Q2 plus extra plates with stickers to make the ship Red 5 or Red 3 depending on the pilot. Pretty awesome!

Re: NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

Been a long time since I've gotten something new in the realm of Transformers, but I lucked out and found Earthrise Grapple ! Grapple was one of the few 'big' Transformers I had as a kid, and also one of the few survivors of my childhood, so he holds a special place in my heart. This new version is ...

Mortal Kombat 11 Premium Edition on PS Store. It was 60% off. The graphical upgrade from Switch to PS4 is great, and it'll be good to play this with friends. The Switch one is great for travel. theHunter also had more DLC on sale, so I picked up Medved Taiga , Cuatro Colinas , and Parque Fernando ....

Lego Star Wars Duel on Mustafar 75269 My kids and I went to a local shop (more on that later) and they didn't have this one, so I grabbed it from Walmart (sadly) instead. Man this set is fantastic! I love the reds, yellows, and oranges they used for all the lava, and the play appeal is great. The h...

Re: Your Latest Non-TF Toy Acquisitions

They're a bit late. You're supposed to do those before Christmas! :glance: No doubt! I would have taken it sooner! Since I got the calendar though, I was poking around Lego's website and got a few more Lego Star Wars sets through their shop: Resistance A-Wing Starfighter 75248 , and Mandalorian Bat...

Re: [The video game thread]

Now that you mention it, I don't think I've actually paid full price for a current-gen game so far. Anything worth playing is going to sell enough that it'll get a $20-$40ish "GOTY" production run a year or two after launch and be readily available for a long time at a reduced price. Yep. I haven't...
