Re: Icons

Mirrors of GeoCities and similar are probably your best bet. eg http://www.geocities.ws/prime357/tfdownloads.html http://www.angelfire.com/vt/ValorDracul/TF.html There's a handful on his DeviantArt account as well. Obviously best to grab what you can and mirror/rehost if possible, as who knows how l...

Re: Your Latest Non-TF Toy Acquisitions

I'd be all about a flocked Moss Man. Apparently there is one, released a couple of years ago through TRU so a bit hard to find now. -- https://www.toysonfire.ca/shop/product/pop-television-masters-of-the-universe-vinyl-figure-moss-man-flocked-568-toys-r-us-exclusive-66690?search=Funko&page=95 Also ...

Re: Figures that could make a good Xaaron?

Did a first few coats in snatches of time and am fairly happy even if it stays like that for ages. Vallejo yellow ochre is matte, has good coverage and dries to re-coat very quickly. I'm minded not to cut off the mount, it makes a nice minimal armament. https://i.imgur.com/6WRGcHT.jpg https://i.imgu...

Re: Remembering that our old toys actually exist!

Is it too early to wax nostalgic on Titans Return? I like figures that have added posing options because of their transformations, and Windblade being able to meditate is a nice one. The sword is a cast by the chap who I bought a repro Bludgeon gun+turret from, which was very kindly added to the ord...

Sneaky bois. https://i.imgur.com/h9u2zwc.jpg https://i.imgur.com/h9u2zwc.jpg edit: It wasn't so bad when exclusives just meant only being available at a single brick & mortar chain that I'd probably stop by anyway.

Re: WANTED: MP10 left wing mirror

They look similar enough that you could get away with casting a copy of the right wing mirror and cutting it to fit? Clay would be the person I'd ask for tips. Or find a non-TF model to buy and get two matching mirrors off when charity shops are safe to go round, some of them might get 1:28/1:30/1:3...

Re: Remembering that our old toys actually exist!

Plus die-cast. Don't think I'm going to touch this with customising as it's too nice. The yellow is a little more orange than the typically bad photo shows, and the figure's a great example of upscaling and better materials showing what the MP line could have been. Much prefer this older sculpt to ...

Humble Comic Bundle: Hasbro Comics Crossovers by IDW Publishing

https://www.humblebundle.com/books/hasb ... nuxreviews

It's mostly Transformers-related, plus a bit of other. For the asking price of one TPB I'm morbidly curious in enough of it to go for the lot.

Re: Your Latest Non-TF Toy Acquisitions

They've gone to a bit of effort with the plastic used on the head (looks better than renders and that photo doesn't quite capture it) and apps so for the more normal price it doesn't feel like too much of a rip off. Not looking to go far down the rabbit hole but seeing they've done Tung Lashor and M...

Re: Custom Siege Pinpointer (or: babby's first dye job) [and other random customs]

Effective (also, crikey that's bad yellowing). I must find/replace the bottle I'd got and have a go at the Getaway, Air Raid, etc. that are in tubs. If we have any more good weather. Seen some great videos of people doing this with huge tubs and old console/computer shells. Shall we make this a gene...

Re: Remembering that our old toys actually exist!

:up: With the G2 Megatron talk I fished out RID Bludgeon -- this one's had the cannon shortened and in the second pic you can just see that the bellows piece has been retained (since it's necessary for the tank mode to not have a gaping hole) but plugged onto his back with a 3/4 Technic pin. Great m...
