Re: Covid 19 / everybody PANDEMIC

I always imagine a bubble like one of those big things you can climb inside. Or that dreadful Jake Gyllenhaal film - something so awful I'm amazed it wasn't an Adam Sandler vehicle. Hope the cough goes soon! It tickles me watching everyone recoil when someone coughs or sneezes on a bus. At least whe...

Re: OFFICIAL TRANSFORMERS TOYS NEWS

I'm a bit puzzled by the Studio Series '86 stuff. I think it's a great idea...but some of these characters are getting concurrent releases in Siege...so I don't quite understand what Hasbro is going for. Or is it that some characters will only show up in Siege or SS '86 and vice versa? Quite like th...

Re: General LEGO discussion (inc. collectible minifigs)

Those are cool. Kre-O was alright, wasn't it? I had the Prowl set and was surprised by how decent the bricks were. Usually off-brand Lego is cack. I like The Beast!

Re: Covid 19 / everybody PANDEMIC

I am enjoying the confusing Wedding Cake system we now have (it's made up of Tiers. Or Tears, if you will). And Wales now going into a complete lockdown for 2 weeks. For me, well, I've had a funny time lately. This whole situation has put a lot of strain on my relationship with my partner, and we sp...

Re: POST YOUR NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

WFC: Siege Netflix Mirage and Scrapface Due to the pace and scale of reveals and hype, these feel rather old hat now, although they're new to me. Sigh. Collecting's a funny game in the age of the pre-order. Anyway, these are really quite lovely. Scrapface looks great with his strange grimy mix of d...

Re: POST YOUR NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

Bit of a silly week for Transformers for me. Earthrise Scorponok Cor, he's a big lad. Nice and solid too. One of the things I didn't like about the last Titan I owned (and sold) Trypticon was how hollow and rattly he was. None of that with Scorpy (well, not quite true - some hollowness in the chest ...

DOTM Sideswipe (Walmart Exclusive) Picked up this fancy blue and yellow version of Sidearm Sideswipe. It's awesome and rolls really well in vehicle mode. I do like the look of this thing, with its big smiley grill. Such a happy car. Robot mode is capable of standing up, which makes it something of ...

Re: Your Latest Non-TF Toy Acquisitions

Lego CiTY 60221 Diving Yacht I've always wanted one of Lego's boats that float. I seem to have missed the boat, if you'll pardon the pun, on some of their smaller non-emergency service sets and this one looked charming. You get a boat, a couple of figures with diving gear and a bit of undersea terr...

Re: POST YOUR NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

Ooh I'm excited for Snapdragon (I have mine on pre-order) - he was my favourite when I was smaller. Looked after him for many years, then traded him in for a complete set of Combaticons, Groove, plus the Micromaster Decepticon Sports Car Patrol. I just really wanted to complete Defensor and the lad ...

I bought some robot gubbins from the Kapow! Sale :swirly: Reissue Gurafi, Noizu & Frenzy The two Dinosaur cassettes are really cute, but I can see why Hasbro haven't made a thing of the combined mode Deicbel. For one, it's pretty awful and for two, the two tapes connect together only by a port on th...

Re: Latest DVD Purchases

Continuing my buy up of old British TV comedy before it gets cleansed and controlled from the online world. Peep Show series 1 - 7 Box Set - I recently rewatched the entire 9 series run on All4 and had forgotten how brilliant this was. Never did very well in the ratings - a lot of people didn't get ...

Re: Hi - the prodigal returns

I've never read Alignment. Is it any good? I can't stand crossovers. Mainly from having a big comics reader in the '90s, when everything had some multi-part mega-event. That and Marvel's 'events' from the 2000s have turned me off crossovers. That's not to say they can't be done well - I liked it whe...

Re: OFFICIAL TRANSFORMERS TOYS NEWS

It seems strange to say this, but that looks very toy-ish. I think I would have preferred the Siege mould in G2 colours. The Earthrise Megs seems kind of dull to me. Still, nice to see G2 get some continued love here and there.

I wish I had the time for all this! I appreciate the effort TFN have gone to to do this, just annoying I've been busy all weekend. Hopefully will be able to catch some of this at some point. Thanks for the heads up on the Kapow sale - picked up some bargains which I'm quite excited about :)

It's part of the Stealth Force sub-line of the Bumblebee Cyberverse Adventures (no idea) which basically means a black repaint. Because that's shorthand for stealth. Whatever, I saw t...
