    If MMC had waited Tyrantron wouldn't have come out until mid next year. There was a hell of a delay between finalised images and actual release. And to be honest, I kinda like Tyrantron's alt mode. It's at least as good-looking as Milne's design, and is at least more interesting than yet another tank. I have Armada Megs to be my tank-megs.

    I think Hot Flame is around about voyager size? I would imagine Naughty would be a little shorter than that but I wouldn't put money on her being definitively deluxe size, because that sort of size is rare as hen's teeth in crazy world of 3P. Still, this is an interesting tease, innit? The alt mode seems to have a very IDW-looking nose which makes me wonder where it goes in robot mode, as that's a chunky old thing and her robot silhouette looks pretty lean. I'll reserve judgement until proper images are out, but as no other company seems to be doing Nautica, I'm interested.

    Yes.

    Pick yourself up a 2nd hand Nintendo Wii (around £20) then install the homebrew channel, you can then pretty much add any retro emulator you can think of for your gaming pleasure.

    Oh man, I love Grapple with the toy head, if I had deep pockets, I'd get a Grapple and an Artfire to do that.

    Easy as pie, you just need an old SD card and about 15mins.
    Use this, follow steps 1-7. Turn your Wii into a fantastic emulation machine

    Then you just need some ROMs.

    If anyone wants a Wii, for £20, with all the homebrew stuff, emulators and roms already added- let me know. I’ve got one in the loft, but as I build the Retropies now, it’s just up there collecting dust.

    Did I just wake up to confirmation of a deluxe Repugnus? I may explode with joy!*

    Let the speculation begin. They’ve got to use a Titans Return deluxe as the basis, right? Even though we’re balls deep in combiner territory you can’t go giving me a super tweaked Rippersnapper.

    OR CAN YOU?!?!?

    *unless it’s pure shite when I see it.

    I love a bit of folly!

    [​IMG]

    I think it's the creative punctuation that's a big part of why they crack me up?

    -

    A couple of 'lite customising' questions, if I may:

    I believe future aka pledge floor wax is the material of choice for tightening friction joints - but what is the equivalent for building up tabs etc? I used to use clear nail polish, but not sure if that will have an effect on the plastic?

    And for owners of the big trypt; des anyone else find that his hip 'splay' joint (hard to describe - I wish I could directly draw onto my post - but the 2 option movement between his hips sitting parallel to his body or moving out a few degrees) always wants to be 'out'? It does on mine, which prevents the hips from sitting flat in base mode. Any solutions that are known of?

    Ah, now that really takes me back...



    ...down the UK Thread!
    Oooooohh! Are them noice twin guns off the UFO Metroplex upgrade set? Lookin' gooooooooooooooooooooood!

    SWEET ENOLA GAY, SON, don't DO this to me in a morning - I nearly made a real mess of Breakfast!!! So this may indicate BO and Repugnus are in fact your May Mayhem type Promobots and not later Wave members. Kinda hoping that if so they span the lines rather than both being Limbots BUT a Deluxe Reougnus? No matter the gimmick, HE SHALL BE MINE!!!
