Pics of ss Ironhide have surfaced, looks like he has really short arms and teeny tiny hands.
Did you know that apparently Top Trumps cards are NOT standard playing card size?
I ordered a bunch of cases from Amazon... and their internal length is 95mm... and the cards are like 100mm... so they don't fit. SHIIIIT. This means I can't supply the cards with plastic cases as I intended. Because of this anyone who HASN't paid yet only has to pay £9, and everyone else I'll refund that £1. It's really annoying, I wanted these cards to be protected and now? Ugh. I dunno.
Oh, BTW, the cards normally have white edges, I coloured in my own set's edges black.
Oh, another BTW, I have 13 people on the new waiting list, once it hits 15 I'll get another run done!
Have another edit, why not. That's everyone who's already paid refunded their quid. As I say, everyone else just has to pay £9, but no plastic case. Boo!
Today’s deskbot is bare pranging innit doe fam.
He's a triple changer. That's just his Jeremy Beadle mode.
Oooooooh, they ol' grey slip of Dooooooom!. I did have my suspicions I might not get away with a TF-Direct order over £20, mentally prepped to get hit when Huge Dragon lands now though.
I am the only one that is feeling unexcited or uinspired about Transformers at the moment? I just don't seem to care about them anymore. I was not even at all bothered about receiving a shipping notice for the other terrocons. This is the first time that I have ever felt like this.
Can I make 14?
Happened to me before. I think it's just a natural cycle, especially if you are in it every day. Just step out of it for a bit and focus on something else until your interest comes back.
Must admit, nothing new except the bw MP's have me excited. Selling things off, i don't feel sad/bad to see them go. It's par for the course. Just don't force yourself into liking it or being excited.
You certainly can. I'll add you to the list!
Same thing with me at the moment.
That was until Crackup arrived who restored a little faith.
Terror-cons (fuck you Apple, I want to spell it my way!!!!) That is the Terrorcons are out the door at Kapow and on the way. Phew. All four limbs will arrive together and that's the first time I'll have done that with a modern Combiner thus far. That wasn't a CW Box Set. Or any other qualifications.
I'm actually pretty pleased to see some new Deluxes come in.
Haven't had an invoice on Primal yet - should I be worried?
They have TR Galvatron at £27 in the Entertainer, which would have been OK-Ish two years ago but it's right next to POTP Startscream which is £19. In what Universe does this make sense? You crazy-wacky God-botherers you......
I have to say I didn't think I was in for a new prime, but if this magic square one does turn out to be MP size I think I'm going to bite.
It just has a look about it
Thanks Mr T, sorry you had to refund the pounds back....
The packing wasnt great so the box was rather dinged but you dont keep KOs MISB so i wasnt bothered
Abominus will be my seventh full combiner, after Computron, Bruticus, G2 Menasor, Sky Lynx with dinobot limbs, and two custom combos with Flame!Scattershot and Elita 1 as torsos. And I have enough limbs for another one if I got a torso to go with them. Somehow this just happened... I wasn't even looking to get into combiners in a big way.
Well, the Mech suits are a mixed bag, though a lovely ambulance white the KO DA-08s come without stickers (or at least mine haven't come with any) buuuut even with the Customs it's more of a fingering than a bumming as they are still cheaper than RRP. I shoulda trusted my instincts and nabbed some in Andy's sale as they are now back at full price but with postage at sale price at the time it'd have been a similar amount but with the red cross stickers I wanted for proper medical unit markings, that'll learn me to lean on filthy KO imports!
I do have a couple of cross stickers from the non-TF decals to do CW Ratchet but they're a bit rough, might have to keep an eye out for a better solution.
They're still swish wee buggers though, and DA-09's got a rather tidy Submersible DSV fanmode without nabbing any of those modular vehicle parts so overall this scrapes into the 'Win' column!
*vaguely human squealing noises*
That’s one grail down!
REFLECTOR LOVE FOR ALL!!!
It's a fantastic set, the individual figures are great and whilst partsforming isn't always viewed in the best light I think the way all the camera bits become weapons is very well executed.
