    One birthday to add (if no prob) - my own, on March 20th. And Sixo is spelled 'Sexo' - but that might be on purpose :)

    For June you've written "father's bday". That's meant to be Father's Day right? :)

    Reassured it could be 6-to-8 weeks, and that it actually entered the post the day after dispatch notice too, which means cheeky Amazon US Cosmos will most likely arrived before the TR Legends set gets here so...yay?
    But also:

    Honestly mate from my experience if it's not here within 4 weeks it aint coming. I got one in 2 weeks this month. It can take longer if they have parts though I suppose.
    I had one go missing in April that had been 5 weeks and with some 3d parts in. Had to get another sent.
    I dunno why Canada posts sucks so bad. It only takes a week or less to air mail a letter from here to there. Maybe its slower as its cheaper shipping rate.

    Now I can't unsee it. There is something about the way the arms connect to the shoulders that seems a little weird. Still an awesome looking combiner. Can't wait for all the POTP stuff. My bank account on the other hand would like a good long rest...

    Really nice indeed. Is it just because Dreadwing is a bit bandy legged in that pic, or is Hot Rod a fairly big deluxe?

    Glad to hear you are ok. My soon-to-be sister in law was knocked off her bike by a truck driver 2 years back, and he drove on. The coppers caught him, but he somehow got away with it. Not even points on his license.

    Sucks about your stickers mate, but I'm sure they'll turn up. Good news about Arcee though. hopefully it won't cost the earth.

    Well, I put experience over hope so I'm not hopeful but I am resigned to politely waiting out the stated time, as I'd rather wait than demand a replacement only to have them turn up as soon as I've done so, Sod's Law-style, and be all guilt-riddled about it.
    Plus factoring in a Bank Hol and a day's delay in dispatch there's definitely a very, very slim, almost infinitesimal chance, I know, I know...

    I hope not, I'd actually quite like a second to Minerva-ise for more Headmaster diversity.
    Plus Worst Case Scenario Takara have gotta do their version, I mean they can't do an Exo-Suit Spike-to-Cerebros head with Bee and not round out the Rebirth cast, yeah?

    Ok.

    1/ Magic Kev strikes again.
    2/ It was @PAPY OPTI's birthday ? Shit, I'm very sorry I missed it brother. Joyeux anniversaire mecton !
    3/ The TF vs Visionnaries thread made me want to drink a rasperberry/lemon juice.
    4/ I don't have that at home and it's rainning. Urgh, why do I go outside the Toy subforum sometimes. It's only get me wet and not in a good way.
    5/ I have no clue at all about why I suck like this at the Sonic Mania's special stages.
    6/ Good game tho'

    Well, that's quite enough of me moaning, time to accentuate some positives!

    At least Pinpointer 2:Rebirth Boogaloo is shaping up pretty well!

    I suppose I really ought to get myself a Kup, now where's dem shelf-clearing sales, eh?

    EDIT: Hmmm, actually looking at him at one remove in that pic, I think he may need a different tone on the arms to de-empasise the horns/antennae like I have on Blowpointer for a more Crosshairs-ish head.

    Wait, I'm down as av sideburns... oh I get it! :lol 

    They're a bit broader and fuller now but yeah, average is fairly generous given the state of them at the time of TFnation!

    @Brum Bot: sorry to hear about your motor mate, glad you are ok though.

    Yeah, I'm totally ready for POTP now. Rodimus, Dreadwind/Darkwing, Terrorcons, the pretenders... oh man.

    Bit of both I think. There's nothing to insist that the smaller robot in the leaders has to be deluxe, of course....

    Really happy with Triggerhappy, never thought Hasbro was gonna make an official toy of him that wasn't a repaint.

    Though his new face reminds me of a certain someone and makes me want to grab a Cybertron Overhaul to keep him company for some odd reason...

    OH! Yes, I forgot to mention.

    SO THAT LAST PAGE OF LOST LIGHT THEN!

    About time that Scorponok came back. And it just fuels my desire for a Leader-class toy of the big green weirdo. And the Magic 8 Ball! Good to see Furman's plot threads being treated with more respect than they were in the AHM era. As in any respect at all.
