    Cheers :thumb  I really hope the other home nations get to compete in 2020, it would be nice to have more than one team to root for.
    Oh, and I completely blame you for this enablement...

    Agreed. Everything feels so lethargic. And the plot is built around searching for *things* rather than being led by characters. I didn't care about a single death in the series ever. Honestly it's stuff like this, that thinks it's edgy and appealing to an adult audience, that makes me embarrassed to be a TF fan sometimes.

    I ordered mine from here a couple of days ago,
    Takara Masterpiece MP-41 Dinobot - Pre order

    It came to a few pence over £236 with shipping from the Netherlands but if my past items from there are any indication there won't be any customs charges.

    Pricing isn't ideal but ebay prices are worse and many of the ones there are from sellers with dodgy feedback and with no guarantee of a second run I decided to bite the bullet and go for it.

    Yeah, considering how short the episodes are, there's a lot of standing around just staring blankly. Maybe there should have been more casualties, hardly any of the characters actually did anything

    Edit: also worth mentioning, there are actually some jokes in there but they're disguised by not actually being funny. Also, on the points of forced edginess, whats up with the swearing?! it adds nothing except make characters look stupid... ok I need to stop ranting...

    I'm not sure when it ends today perhaps but UK Cashback site Quidco has a £2.50 bonus cashback offer on all their affiliates accept eBay (boo !! no eBay) so i'm just mentioning it in case anyone wanted to buy something from the Entertainer or someplace like that.

    Since they might have something online someone wants as well as the hundreds of other retailers of course.

    oh! @Convoy mentioning all our customised bots just reminded me, now I know how to strip paint off, as well as doing a remaster of Punch, I can do a remaster of my Skywarp. The white on him is hideously lumpy, I've never been happy with that. But as my first full body repaint, it was a big learning point for me. Will have to see if cracker needs it, but yes. Oh yes, I'm gonna remaster all my old figures.

    @Convoy I used to just do stickers! Start small n' cheap and work your way up (or slip downward into the spiral), follow the advice you can find but most of all do. Don't settle for "I couldn't", try until you can!

    I dont suppose anyone here has an OSKO TR Hardhead and TR Clobber?

    If so could you post a pic of Clobber in the OS figure?

    I want to see how it looks for a potential repaint

    FUCKING HELL

    E-Er I mean... looks good! I'm as enthralled by 3P making 4000 different versions of MP G1 Trailbreaker as anybody else, but a few left field choices like this can work wonders. And in this case it has. That is one superior Soundwave!

    I like that 'try until you can'. not bad CH, you should make a motivational meme.

    Right, I'm going to create a project & use to learn stuff a long the way. I decided to go for a fembot from beast hunters Starscream. On a blast-from-the-past tangent, I just picked one up from ebay seller Lena81822, remember when that account used to sell super cheap thrilling 30 stuff before it was even released. I took those glory days for granted!

    [​IMG]

    for inspiration, there;s a ton of Slipstreams online, that I can slowly build my way up to


    [​IMG]

    Although, I've also realised this figure has a very conspicuous COCKpit, that I can't unsee...:eek:  it even has a hinge

    Edit: I'm not planning to do any big customising, I'm not looking to make slipstream. Just look for bits to paint or colour in. I'll try everything on Junkers before I go to figure. It'll just be something to work on maybe for a loooong time

    Nice. Invoice for Nemesis Prime paid, can't wait to get my hands on it. The Optimus version didn't click with me, but the repaint is all sorts of good looking.
