RTS Lugnut Yeah he's awesome. Alt mode still looks a bit too chubby and short to pass as anything particularly realistic, but damn if the robot mode isn't the most coolest thing ever. ...kind of wish we got more Animated reimaginings like this. He is awesome indeed! I would also like to see more CH...

No longer a problem on my MP Ironhide - my cat randomly bit his foot really hard so there is no 'moulded detail'.

Anyone want a cat?

Give me a shout if you want me to get one for you from a UK retailer, but the added costs of shipping to me and then shipping to you + customs may make this more trouble than it's worth. Which UK retailers have Deluxe Groove? I'm struggling to find one, but if I did I would seriously consider getti...

Also got out RTS Wreck-Gar and Generations Junkheap. So their transformation is a total pain, but there is just so much fun to be had with a Transformer riding another Transformer!

Couldn't agree more!

Makes for more interesting collections too, I think. Everyone has different reasons for how things end up that way.

...collecting is escapism and an impulse to have control of a tiny bit of the universe, and frankly there's enough sucking negativity around without imagining that people preferring one bit of expensive plastic to another is a value judgement on people that like different ones or collect them in a ...

Eras of toys I don't really miss, but would probably snap up a loose example of Motormaster if I saw one cheap just because it'd be nice to have a complete example representing the one I got as a quiz booby prize via TMUK a couple of weeks ago... maybe the green version. I guess you mean ROTF Mixma...

I would say individually they are fun. Menasor? Meh Undoubtedly Menasor is a mess, but I find him to be an inordinate amount of fun. :swirly: I have CW Smokescreen and Sky Lynx and never bother finding other limbs to combine them. For me, they are just individual figures to fill the gap. I dunno......

So... Unite Warriors Galvatronus : My first and sadly last CW figure. First and last? Shame. I found the Stunticons to be great fun, despite their obvious flaws. I also really enjoy UW Devastator but he's really a bespoke figure given he doesn't follow the standard CW template. I'm very tempted by ...

I think Skyquake slowly but steadily sold me on Skybyte. Perhaps if one can be sourced for cheap at TFnation... Generations Skybyte was kicking about shops in Stirling a few weeks ago, reduced. DM me if you want me to pick one up for you if they're still around, and let me know your price limit (ex...

My cat randomly attacked MP Ironhide, and now he has a small but irritating dent in his foot thanks to the cat's tooth. Cats. :rant:

It'll be interesting to see if we get Battle Gaia or the Hasbro Ruination colours at any point. There are so many versions of Ruination to choose from... They could also re-release Defensor as Guard City with minimal changes to the original Protectobot colour-scheme. Do you think we'll see G2 Defen...

Looks like Takara are redoing Combiner Wars Bruticus as Baldigus from Car Robots. Well, I say Combiner Wars rather than UW because they seem to have gone with the Slingshot mould for Shuttler. Rather than, y'know, the brand new mould they made specifically for Blast-Off. Mad. Nice! And unexpected! ...

Has anyone done Generations Sky Byte? If not, can I please? :) Yeah, I did claim him a year or so ago, so it's fair to say my reserve on that has lapsed... I'm not likely to have time to review anything soon either, so go for it! (I really like the figure though - if anything I have begun to feel o...

I got Figma Motoko Kusanagi New Movie Version. She's really great, as I expected owning the Figma Stand Alone Complex version of the character. The new design of Motoko from Ghost in the Shell Arise brings her closer to the original Manga in look and character than any previous anime version (not sa...
