Re: NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

Animorphs Marco / Gorilla Heh. This guy is pretty neat. The gorilla mode is fantastic and looks great. I love the paint and texturing. The transformation is clever, although pretty basic. The human mode itself is pretty boxy looking and is improved by the mid-morph sculpt the toy has. For a line I'...

Re: New Death's Head Limited Series

This wrapped up last month, and I'm still not entirely sure what I've been reading about. Various characters seem obsessed with Death's Head for reasons that seemed vague and unclear. For Wiccan, it's because he's so consumed with his own self-importance and brilliance that he can't stop poking into...

YouTube and the FTC COPPA Act

Been watching with interest the developments around this. It's basically the latest round of things large digital companies are doing wrong, that are only now being belatedly addressed. In brief, YouTube has been found to be in breach of the Child Online Privacy Protection rule by collecting data on...

Re: The Transformers Partwork Discussion Thread.

Just got through the latest volumes, which have included Autocracy and the RID issues where Megatron returns and Prowl is revealed to be a puppet of Bombshell. The Autocracy stuff was pretty mediocre, it wasn't bad, but just wasn't great. I think if I'd read this in it's original format of a few sho...

Re: NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

Siege Sixgun Saw Sixgun in Smyths and thought he looked to be the best of the bunch (my choice was between him and Barricade. I should be more excited by the Impactor toy... but I'm not. Probably in part due to Hasbro's confused marketing and a lsightly rubbish alt mode. He's a Decepticon now???). ...

Re: General LEGO discussion (inc. collectible minifigs)

It's not that it's intimidating, and I certainly wouldn't expect to be putting together transforming Dinobots out of the gate, or anything. It's just that my interest in LEGO is aesthetic and therapeutic; I enter a kind of zen state when I'm following the instructions that allows me to calm down, a...

Re: What TV shows are you watching thread.

I've watched the first 2 episodes of Watchmen. Seems interesting and a neat premise, be interesting to see where it goes. A bit early to tell at the moment.

Re: NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

TLK Berserker Horrible looking robot mode with some nice paint apps, and a right royal pain to transform. I can't get any of the panels to properly peg in, or get the robot limbs folded up underneath to behave. It's got all the tabs in the world, but none of them in the right places. A frustrating ...

Universe Tread Bolt Neat recolour of the 2006 Classics Jetfire mould. He's a chunky fellow and the mould works better for me as an afterthought repaint of a Micromaster no-one remembers. Just because I can totally disassociate it from the still ace BanDai Valkyrie that was the original Jetfire figu...

Re: General LEGO discussion (inc. collectible minifigs)

I think seeing the amount of clever things folk do online with Lego can be a bit intimidating when thinking about building stuff yourself these days. I tend to like customising sets I've bought and adding to them. I'm still really pleased with the 2013 Castle stuff I bought a few years back and modi...

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

I'm onboard for putting Studio Series Devy together. I like Hightower and Long Haul that I've managed to pick up and I like that the designers have thought that to make Devastator match the hulking thing on screen, you'll need some extra dudes to bulk him out. I think its a very clever jumble of fig...

Re: General LEGO discussion (inc. collectible minifigs)

I've been picking up a few from Series 19. Generally a lively and fun set of figures and the bulking up of the accessories adds value (but one wonders if this to sugar the pill of the mooted price hike for these next year). Was amused my local Lego shop has got fed up of having to have two or three ...

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

Physical format things do seem to be leaning that way, don't they? Certainly the trend for comics seems to be huge unwieldy tomes (still struggle with the ones Denyer kindly gave me a few years back - I feel like I need to be reading them in a library standing up whilst wearing gloves).

Been meaning to listen to those Beeb things. I just can't find the time. Stupid life.

Hmm heard Cradle were tinkering with that after they fiddled about with erm, that other one of theirs (forget the name - was it Duck And Her Embrace..?). I saw them a few years ago at HammerFest, and they were ace!

I dunno, it works for me. It's got that same sort of vibe I enjoyed in Marshal Law and it's nice seeing that on TV. And not turning out a bit cack like Heroes did 10 years or so ago.
