Re: NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

There's a place for chunky retro, and the Springers fit in different line-ups IMO. There's enough to differentiate them without one just seeming like a step backwards. Unlike the half-arsed recent stabs at Jazz or Prowl, or getting to a stage where it feels like Mirage is in every line, etc. Can't c...

Re: NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

Mmm, sure it's a common reaction but it doesn't feel as if the leader concept has been thought through with the "voyager + some bits" concept. If anyone is after Siege, it looks like Smyth's have had their Xmas stock in. Also picked up a Sixgun since they've clearly opened or been shipped some lefto...

Re: International shipping from/to the USA about to get more expensive

Yeah, saw that on Facebook. In the US to UK direction it's been fairly noncompetitive for some time (I think the last thing I got from a US seller was a set of Pretender Monster shells) and the exchange rate tends to prohibit UK to US sales. Amazon US haven't been too bad though.

Re: General LEGO discussion (inc. collectible minifigs)

Word of warning if anyone's after LDD -- the 4.3.12 installer on the official site seems to have a very outdated brick definition file (missing various joints and more besides) and is a much smaller download than 4.3.11 -- fortunately the previous version is still available; https://www.eurobricks.c...

It's the sound of an era. To put it into context, I'd recommend this compilation from the time --

Re: Some thoughts on the Marvel TF comics

Weird oversight, isn't it?

Also couldn't get into a book ignoring G2. Did quite enjoy the "Transformers '84 #0" one shot that came out recently though.

Been doing a bit more research, and it appears Jerac's published instructions -- the Smurfs dreads in the post above are an iteration further ahead in some respects, but this is funking cool; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h7hoDu5B3Ic https://www.brickvault.toys/products/dreadnought-warhammer-40k h...

Re: What TV shows are you watching thread.

Couldn't get through the first series of Preacher, personally. I get the impression it moves onto the "great American road trip" arc eventually in the more recent stuff though. If anything, my view'd be that the comics could do with some abridging rather than padding out -- it's a great series but l...

Re: NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

Speaking of pre-orders it's going to be ****ing hard to justify Seacons at the suggested TT mall prices -- getting to 3P combiner heights. Are they really, though? Generic deluxe figure for Titans Return was ~$17 to $20, and it's Takara counterpart was typically $40 by the time it got to this conti...

Springer, but holding off on opening until Impactor puts in an appearance too.

Re: General LEGO discussion (inc. collectible minifigs)

I realise this is my own little niche interest, but I'm pretty sure the Castraferrum ones are new (2016) rather than I've just forgotten them... and that one in the middle is particularly neat. The design as a whole captures the squatness in a way I basically ignored (haven't really modded them sinc...

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

As far as Kickstarter-type things go, I'd rather have seen something like those 3P pretenders -- stuff that would probably never justify a big enough retail release but a toy company could make work and come out of at least cost neutral and with kudos.

Titan Trypticon, he's so bloody massive he looks ridiculous in my tiny house. He's bigger than our cats! Mmm, and ours (who isn't a small breed) -- but does look nice on top of a couple of display cabinets with Metroplex and Fort Max in city mode, plus some MMs, etc. Was cheap enough to feel like a...

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

Not surprised at all. General lack of certainty over many things doesn't incline most people to drop that amount on a single item that's an impractical size. Whereas done as Titan class size and quality it'd probably sell like hot cakes. Also, prices are going to go up because of tariffs. That threa...

Sort of Transformers... what's more interesting than being a MOC is that it's alternate build of a specific set, so if you wanted to follow along you could go get it: https://alanyuppie.blogspot.com/2019/08/instructions-for-lego-transformer.html https://i.imgur.com/YJxwzJm.jpg https://i.imgur.com/YJ...

Re: Some thoughts on the Marvel TF comics

Culture doesn't exist in isolation from biology, sure. in most continuities Transformers are either built in factories by other Transformers or spring fully alive from the ground.
