    I feel another purge approaching. But I bet you feckers are all saving your cash for TFNation, aren't you?

    On that note, I have an alarmingly small amount on pre-order. And have nothing arriving in the near future, either. Going through an un-enthused phase, I think. Stuff like TR Overlord and those clone fellas are just calmly passing me by with barely a second glance. Maybe I've died inside.

    Sorry for the delay, been in Westeros for a bit!
    Well, Amazon sez Thursday but Yodel sez...*tappity tappit click*...on or before July EIGHTEENTH!?! :eek:  So maybe tomorrow?! I might have to lie down for a bit!

    Your pics deffo make him seem wider and a smidge taller if not deeper than wee spray (and it could be his lack of depth is explained by his internal cockpitless solidity compared to the regular legends), that's why my money's veering towards the 'bigger' being slightly more material but also the extra engineering (the skeleton or at least some shared bones of 2 transformation schemes) and partscount (looking side-by-side with Seaspray, Cloudraker has a three to four component arm, depending if you count the shoulder joint. Without counting it he still has fists/forearms/upper arms compared to Spray's mere two sections of forearm/upper arm).

    A skate rail that turns into a railgun? More like how could you not?! How could I not? Too much spent on TFs in quick succession already, in fact. Lovely colour scheme too though!

    Missed the clone 2-pack, eh? Will I rue the day? Or be selling Fastclash for PROFIT! to fund a Takara twinpack buy? Tune in Post-SDCC to find out TF-Fans? Same TF Site! Same TF Thread!

    I've always got funds for you, Ben.

    In other news, my Rioter Despotron and Striker Manus are still for sale if anyone's interested.

    I'm also still selling DOTM Murderbee and GDO Swerve, plus a PSP 3000 with lots of games and accessories.

    Other than that, I'm currently enjoying CW Computron and pondering whether to sell UW Breakdown (Grand Galvatron set)

    Kinda feeling the same, maybe not so extreme but deffo not excited for anything in the near future. There are plenty bits I would like but everything I really want is so far away and it's like I'm in some holding pattern. IF Bruticus is the only thing that I could be really hyped for in the short term but who knows when that will show up, and other than that it's just "fine, go on then I guess" as far as the eye can see.

    That said, if something good comes out of those GT beast/Zoids/something bots shown at TFCon things could very easily swing back around. I can see me getting very in to that line if it turns out as lovely as the designs they a basing them off. But not enough for me to go off on them quite yet.

    Let's have a deskbot, those are still fun.

    Chars dude!

    Working backwards, sinker...line......

    They're a bit more simplified due to the nature of the the source, but I've tried to put a bit of my own spin on them

    There are quite a few things I like the look of, but in most cases that would involved going down a route that is far too expensive: MMC! Lots of nice figures? But the price point is just too high.

    Enjoying TR at the minute and finding it manageable in terms of hasbro deluxes + Takara everything. MP's are also limited to main characters and that is currently keeping me happy.

    Best figure recently? Black shadow. Just pure fun to transform. I have quite a few 3rd party figures but none of them hit that spot of fun and being not afraid of breaking them.

    my 2 cents on the clones - very nice indeed - and I do wonder (as postulated on twitter last night) if we're looking at precursors to updated pretender inner bots - Cloudraker in particular is only a minor retool away from Cloudburst, IMHO - which is never a bad thing - I also love the ingenuity of wingspans transformation - that little step where you fold in the arms and the tabs for the wings fold out at the same time - really nice and clean...

    Not so excited by Breakdown, but if ever you feel the need to move on Thrust I'll be there like a shot.

    That's an intriguing thought. Thursday can't come quick enough!
    Titans Return has been such an innovative line, with Clones and Titan Masters just being the most obvious examples. I really hope PotP can keep it up, so to speak.
