Re: Covid 19 / everybody PANDEMIC

I'm chomping at the bit to get my jab. Five minutes into lockdown restrictions being eased and people are already wandering around without masks, forgetting to social distance and cluttering up Primark like it's going out of business. I just don't trust the public to look after their own health, as ...

Re: Remembering that our old toys actually exist!

Cybertron was a very chunky line, wasn't it? I do like a fair few of the designs. There's some terrible guff though, Crumplezone, Override, Skywarp, whatever Menasor and Metroplex were supposed to be... I liked the 'colony' concept of the series, that was a neat, with each planet having its own desi...

Re: OFFICIAL TRANSFORMERS TOYS NEWS

The lack of Predacons in Kingdom is killing me (Fossilizers don't count!). I get it though, good guys sell better and all that and there's the weaponizer gimmick to cram in. Just a shame, good guys are BORING!

Re: Remembering that our old toys actually exist!

I think I like the Cyberbeasts because they're a bit fancy and exotic, and because they don't shed chrome like glitter confetti. I love the Transmetal 2 aesthetic, but the only ones I have now are Blackarchnia and Iguanus*. All the others were starting to flake something rotten, so I sold them all o...

Re: unicron Armada, reflector and catalog brochures, promo posters

I find it funny that the Armada toy was retooled to look more like the character from the '86 Movie...when he already looked like that anyway. At least to my eyes. All the character traits are there, anyway. Beard, horns, massive wings, right colours. I remember Armada Unicron tanked over here - he ...

If you can still find, there's more than one 3P upgrade kit Neat! Might keep my eye out for one. Not essential, as I'm happy enough with the figure as it is. In new figure news: Kingdom Airrazor My my, what a beautiful figure she is. Lovely mix of plastic colours and paint to make her feel quality....

Re: Remembering that our old toys actually exist!

Beast Wars II Cyberbeasts! https://imgur.com/a/Tr1LjVR Took me the longest time to get these together. Not quite as mental as the Transmetal 2 Beast Wars figures, but I like the mish-mash of cybernetic parts with beasty-flesh. Really nice paint apps on all four of them too. I do find Max-B and Thrus...

DOTM Space Case Retool and redeco of the HFTD Terradive mold, here in translucent blue. I just really wanted on. He's sparkly blue translucent plastic and has a big pointy fork and a cross looking face. Love it. Generations Thrilling 30 Blitzwing Had it and sold it. Bought it again. I dunno, I know...

Re: Remembering that our old toys actually exist!

I'd love Universe Silverbolt and the Ramulus repaint (Longhorn?). Silverbolt is an awesome awesome toy (and I like the character too). I did find too many of the Fuzors fell into the ugly-weird end of things. Airhammer and Noctorro spring instantly to mind. The mix of beasts wasn't successful in all...

Re: Is the Dreamwave run available digitally?

Pretty much. I'd quite like to read Energon again, as it was pretty decent. All my paper copies are long gone though. Always thought it was a shame that Hachette didn't get more of the G1 stuff from DW done. ALthough given how awful it turned out, maybe that's a good thing.

Re: POST YOUR NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

Still, 79 after a triple heart by-pass 16 years ago isn't bad going. And if nothing else, I'm glad it was quick for him. If that doesn't all sound too flippant. I think it's a healthy way of looking at it. Sorry to hear anyway. Having parents who refused to give up smoking there's going to be an el...

Re: Covid 19 / everybody PANDEMIC

...I'm hoping I get my jab at all. Things are not looking great on the supply front, thanks to recent scrapes and guff involving the EU, which I can't even be bothered to get into. Suffice it to say, we're still reliant on them for imports, but now there's a hold up. All of which doesn't fill me wit...

Masterpiece MP39+ Spin Out Another Diaclone homage! Having spent time playing with Cordon, I'm a lot more comfortable handling this mould now and appreciate it's cleverness and complexity. The Turbo Tuning Lambo mould looks stunning in this bright red, although the paint/plastic matching isn't so g...

Re: Latest Music Purchases.

Alright, been a while, but here's what's been making my ears bleed for the back end of 2020 and beyond. Delain 'Apocalypse & Chill' (2020), Ad Inifinitum 'Chapter I: Monarchy' (2020), Beyond The Black 'Horizons' (2020) God but I love orchestral metal. It's so loud and fast and a tiny bit silly. Thes...

^Agreed. I love it when Transformers comes up with something fresh looking. Speaking of fresh looking, let's have a look at some money for old rope with the Platinum Edition Autobot Heroes and Planet of Junk Clash - or Studio Series 16, as I like to call them -seeing as I have them on some shelves r...

I like the Dinobotty colours on these and instantly got them out to fiddle with. Yes, my collection probably is ...

Re: POST YOUR NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

Thank you :) He was 79. He'd had a bit of a rubbish year with his health, and had a heart attack which was unexpected. It's been a bit overwhelming, tbh. He was a Teacher and Methodist minister and a circuit one at that, so we've had so many people getting in touch :) Still, 79 after a triple heart ...
