Re: NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

Yeah, really like Sixgun as the Siege representative in a line of CW Strafe, TR Hardhead, and POTP Ricochet (although the latter-most needs a TM to have a purpose). He's the only one out of the mixed two waves of deluxes on the shelves at that point I'd not got and would have regretted a bit not pic...

Re: NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

Received my copy of the Cybertronic Spree Kickstarter album, it's actually more techno-ey than I thought it would be. Cool. Never heard about it, but hopefully there'll be a general release now it's out to backers. Looks pretty cool -- https://www.outrightgeekery.com/2019/09/21/until-all-are-one-th...

Re: NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

The Aoyi Mech Sai Star Commander KO of SS 38 Bee Prime, which adds die-cast and was less than twelve quid shipped... had to straighten and reinforce with glue antennae as it was shipped unboxed (should've spent the extra quid, but it pulled through). Excellent quality. Currently facing off against T...

Re: Dalek and Warcry's Endless Star Trek Thread

I think the issue is probably that a lot of people don't want Trek to change. Or at least, not to change in the direction that some of the more recent stuff seems to be pushing it. The franchise has always had an optimistic slant that set it apart from it's contemporaries and it would be a shame fo...

Re: Dalek and Warcry's Endless Star Trek Thread

Anyone else find that the sequestering of Discovery and Picard onto obscure subscription services has really killed your interest in it? Don't really keep up with any TV or films whilst they're "hot" for the most part. DVD or downloads long after the fact -- not much justifies buying on physical me...

Re: Latest Music Purchases.

You'll probably be familiar with a lot of the picks on the first two shows, if even I was. The 2016 Dusk and Her Embrace is earlier recordings... not really familiar enough with the one that got released in 1996 to compare them objectively, but they do sound completely different. Both are clearly ea...

Re: Transformers (2019-?) #1 [SPOILERS]

By this point paper singles have lost out because they're crap -- more expensive, fragile to read, hassle to store, don't hold value versus collected editions, etc. Most adults with other demands on their time aren't bothering to make specific journeys to comic shops to catch up on monthly releases,...

Re: NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

Given a body that doesn't have a strong existing character vibe (which is a preconception kids won't be stuck with) have to say I actually quite like the play pattern -- it's a shame there aren't more suitable voyager-class moulds. Needs more 5mm weapon holes though. https://i.imgur.com/ZYFJox0.jpg ...

Re: Transformers (2019-?) #1 [SPOILERS]

It's nice to have series in one place for a proper read, but they do vary in success a great deal -- IIRC without double-checking the Planetary one has noticeably thin paper, or things like the old 2012 Annotated Sandman (like a lot of DC/Wildstorm titles of the era) has a cheap and porous matte fin...

Re: NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

The Entertainer [...] were left with a load of Thundercrackers no-one wanted. Light's too low to get a photo now, but I liked the transformation on Nitro Zeus Thunderwing and whilst ideally the paint would be a more purple-y blue, bend the knees a bit and it has enough kibble and pointy bits to loo...

There's some good recent ones too, if anyone's looking to dip their toes in.

Re: Custom Paintjobs

AFAIK frenzyrumble is still selling -- https://www.flickr.com/photos/accardi1/ Not sure that prices are likely to cover the time investment. I've bought custom-painted stuff, TF and 3P, a handful of times (or things with upgrade kits already added) and it's usually been at or below original cost; un...

Re: NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

If for some reason they did Brunt in green, would be all over it -- someone's already done centurion warrior customs based on that design. The Spartan helmet design for Impactor is iconic, but it's borrowed iconography that isn't particularly faithful to the original comics. People particularly keen...

Re: Official Transformers new/upcoming releases! Hasbro, TakaraTomy and more

Assume retailers, they've fixed it, or both. Do they take payment when it closes, or at pledge? If not the latter (and they admit and adjust for payments bouncing) would expect the final total to be a lot less. Might be sold on Scorponok, but if the price hike on things such as the Seacons is anythi...

Re: Snowpiercer tv series official trailer + official animated clip

Seems to be ripping off decades of similar one-note science fiction ideas, with lots of CGI, loud noises and sexing up.

Re: Star Trek Picard series official trailer

Is this a new trailer? Can't say I'm enthusiastic, having spent the last quarter of a century absentmindedly following the continuing adventures of the timeline, including series like Titan and New Frontier (although the less said about the way the latter turned out the better). To toss that for "th...

Re: NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

Impactor, CW Magnus and a KO of that Perfect Effect PC-17 white Prime to turn it into a real Magnus. Rounds out the working area nicely.

Anyone still reading this? I was thinking #12 might be a logical jumping off point before a new arc, but it's basically a xeno-sociology spotlight from Nautica's point of view, and if Ruckley's going to keep up this quality (plus it's going monthly and easier to keep track of) I think I'm in, probab...

Re: I have a few questions I want to ask

Different world in many respects -- it was was normal to rest things and move on to others, even with viewing or reading audiences that companies would kill for now. The comics went the same way. Toy tie-in material wasn't something that carried much if any kudos with Marvel staffers, although some ...
