    Still haven’t gotten around to opening MP Sunstreaker yet (!) but I did receive this chap today in the mail today and I’m rather impressed with him :)

    I'm hoping for a g1 skids; it's like a race between 3p mp and legends classes.

    Love it.

    Ha ha ha! That's going in my top ten 'creeps posts list.

    If this time last year you told me I'd be collecting 3P, and not that fussed about TOTP I would have thought you were nuts. IMG_20180112_220918.jpg
    But these guys have been so much fun. It's going to be nice to add to their ranks :D

    It's essentially a gussied up version of The War Within Megs innit? It's a bloody simple transformation though, so at least MMC could have done it easily enough if they'd waited a bit.

    Yeah, pretty much. But I'm a simple man, my Tyrantron is 100% MTMTE Meg so, you know, even with a proper alt mode I wouldn't have transform him (and I'm fine with it!) haha.

    Relay race Mega Man 1 to 3 incoming <3

    You've lost it Avon, to even contemplate compiling a list of such bewildering folly would surely lay you open to accusations of possession of the most feeble of minds. Just sayin'

    I may have to crack out the toy head, I’ve gone full-on orangery, but the black contrast is so much more TT grown up

    Ah yes! Ta mrs brum. Think this was one I was pondering, the grumbles about the audio spooked me. Do you find it a problem?

    Thanks! The world of Raspberry Pi is beyond me so far. Is it a happy place to live?

    That scale is great! Would probably hate to see the bots next to each other mind you

    Yes sir this’s my baby:

    Has anyone handled SXS' Hot Flame before? How is the quality and scaling to CHUGs? I kinda want my Nautica to be as tall as Brainstorm, but the other part of me wants her to be scaled with Skids.

    And yes SXS is coming with an IDW Nautica

    Whilst this cover excites me greatly I'll be too scared to read that run because I know in my bones it will end so badly for a number of my favourite characters :'(

    I feel you.

    But deep inside my heart, I know Misfire will end up savior/ruler of the entire multiverse.
    Then he resigns and goes play shoot shoot bang bang.

    I haven’t encountered any audio issues so far, Sonic was delightfully retro gold, played a few others like Golden Axe, and all good so far.

    That was a wonderful race.
    And now... Punch Out and Super Punch Out played at the SAME time on ONE pad Oo

    Aaaand 1 MILLION DOLLARS ! <3


    Meanwhile, that Punch Out thing is nuts.
    Reminds me of that time the 4 Nes Mario were played at the same time by the same inputs (massive nuts).

    Ok he just perfected MIKE TYSON, while playing both games. Finished in less than 24 mns.

    Des bisous.

    Yep the whole Retropie setup is remarkably easy to get started running and includes MAME and most 8/16 bit systems with a nice menu setup. For he price it’s a great emulation system for the pride and size

    Sorry. :) 

    These are from the archive:

    Christ, I'm such a pimp for these figures.

    In fairness the scale isn't ideal next to anything but the Autobot cars - where I love the fact that the seekers are so much bigger. Never understood the way the Decepticons could hold their own next to the Autobots despite being outnumbered. Once you realise what monsters an F-15 would seem like next to a Porsche it all clicked into place.

    If I had my ultimate scale FTW dream come true the car-bots would all be the same size as they are now (though at a more exact scale with each other), Prime would be about an inch taller than he is (truck mode scale would match the cars better) with Megs the same height. Magnus would scale proportionally to Prime's new vehicle mode, Soundwave and Shockwave would all be around an inch and a half taller than they are (one reason I went back to Quakewave) to closer match Megatron and these OS seekers and the Fuso trucks would both be at least Prime hight, maybe a cm taller. You can stick the cartoon scale chart up yer arse. :)

    Last year's Christmas production at the school that I teach was the Nativity told through a TOTP format. The kids had absolutely no idea what on earth TOTP was, making me feel st least a bazillion years old.

    I may have mentioned that I love this figure. Gimme a red one.

    Milne Tank? Hmmmm. Heretic it may be of me but I actually prefer the MMC Smooshed-SpaceJetDrillthing than that. Apart from a gratuitous amount of Spikey-bits that design just looks.......uninspired? I love the Guy's art but I'm guessing Don Fig, Guido and Santaluca are the go-to dudes to actually translate daubs into Toy Designs still.

    Ok, well maybe not Don anymore.

    And on designs: Unrustables. Nope, just not doing it for me. It's original Characters with a ton of posebility so I should be fully behind it but they just have too many nags to make me want to pay the full whack for a Bikeformer. Maybe I'll warm up to future iterations.

    Happy Saturday's y'all.
