    Oof, not liking SS Ironhide. However, if someone is liking the look of it and looking to shift on their HFTD deluxe, hit me up.

    Yeah, just roll with it bud. I think we all go through it. I dip in and out of TF collecting; I'll go back to lego or get into a creative hobby of some kind, but I always come back to TF's - usually when a pre-order I put in months before drops and BOOM. Back in the game.

    I think I'll be having a quiet word with Mr. DPD driver's boss. Third one on the trot theyve fucked up so its deliberate. And we're not gonna take it........

    You aren't a fan of the new DPD exclusive "Battle Damaged" packaging then? ;) 

    As much as I love new toys, it's the nostalgia that keeps me attached to toys and to me there is nothing better than a bit of vintage action :D

    Because like this he fits right in Max's forearm, even with the OP/Octane Twin blaster still attached it can still be closed.

    Also taken a punt with my occasional employers to see if I can convince 'em to get these lads sorted properly.

    These homebrew crosses are a bit ropey for my liking!

    Awful, impromptu photo, but I just can’t contain my excitement! They scale perfectly and they look amazing!

    Fucking lovely stuff there Bazzer :thumb  If pushed I'd say my favourite G1 Protectorbot would be Blades, and my favourite CW version Streetwise.

    That's what I don't like either, every time I see them I just think to myself why can't these people be this patriotic all year round rather than just a few weeks every four years :lol 
    Although to be fair my five year old son did get excited when he saw some England flags the other day, and asked me if they were the flags of where we live, which made me smile.

    Glad you're liking them, I've got my set displayed with the various Iron Factory Decepticons and think the scale & aesthetic works really well.

    @Underlord,
    I agree, if you're going to be that passionate about the flag do it all year round and not because there's a football tournament on.

    Did you tell your son "It's where we live but don't behave like the people that say Ingerland instead of England " :D

    I still say hasbro should have used cyclonus in their liokaiser boxset.

    At some point, I'm replacing the dragstrip jaruga with that hound. If only it had been announced when i started. I'm sure I'll be able to do something with drag jarugar.

    I may have a loose but complete one shoved away somewhere. When I get some free time I’ll have a look.

    They needed to re-use the Sky Lynx mould somewhere.

    So the Entertainer in Norwich suddenly got a some Wave 4 TR Deluxes in. I took the opportunity to snap up Krok and Quake. I'll be on the lookout for Hasbro's Twin Twist and Takara's Skullcruncher at TFN, and then, aside from a chance at Nautica, that might be me done with TR.

    Krok is a wonderful little bot. The purple/black/lime just works, and the crocodile mode looks very nice. Also, huge. He's quite the lengthy altmode, comparable in size to some Voyagers. The articulation and the opening jaws on the head are great, they effectively make the mode for me. In robot mode I continued my luck from getting Highbrow- His legs are sturdy, and he can stand upright and hold a pose. Loving the articulation on his arms as well.

    Quake is great, nothing I haven't already experienced with Hardhead, but still as good a figure in this form as he was then. The new paints look good, the maroon/grey/blue is a great colour scheme, and that lightning-bolt-angled-Deceptibrand is very nice. And he is handsome.

    Then I get home and get my hands on the new issue of LL. Roberts delivered the feels and a satisfying end to this arc. Good stuff.

    True. Maybe just go full Dezaras on it so he's the colours he was meant to be, and have cyclonus as Liokaiser. Put them both in the boxset. I don't know. I'm getting dizzy from a food coma.

    It's this kind of an evening.




    Hmmm. Let's see if I can grab LL this weekend. Gonna go back and reread the last two issue first, so I run all three together.
