    I've a few I'd be happy to part with - after anyone in particular?

    Nice!! and excited to see you are working on Bugly next!

    Good luck with the move dude.

    Kudos to the good folk at Kapow! I've been more that pleasantly surprized at the pricing for the Siege stuff and now the price on Big Powered is more reasonable than I'd expected. Couldn't not sling a wee deposit down on it.

    I'll have to be more stringent with my bot-buying from now on. The wife and I are expecting a baby in March! So it'll be bottle sterilisers, nappies and the like I'll be spending most of my dosh on :)  We're off to get one of those creepy '4d' scans tomorrow - and hopefully we will find out if it's a boy or a girl. Regardless of gender, it'll have to contend with Papa B trying to foster love for transforming robots.

    That is from the last scan. Doesn't it look like the wee'un is wearing a Halloween mask or something?

    Anyway - seems like there are listings for Barricade in the Siege line. Prowl repaint, or mislabelled Studio Series figure?

    Massive congrats Brian! That is lovely news. When you're getting the scan done, don't forget to ask if it's Autobot or Decepticon. Seriously though, made up for you man!

    Autobrat or Deceptikid! Cheers guys! I always expected I'd be shitting myself at the prospect, but so far I've been just really excited!

    I expect the terror will set in first time I have to change a shitty nappy.

    The Disease is in me! As is easily guessable by one of the other Lego cart contents blatantly showing the nascent possibility of yet another shell mod (fairly guessable from a single item in it's case) even though I'm running out of Primes to bung in 'em! (Good Job there are those Special Eds?) It's just a matter of do I cave sooner or wait in the hope that Kapow have a clearout on the last wave of fellas. I also have a neat idea what to do with an extra Landmine but his Wave Hi'ed then Died so I dunno if I want to go to the extra effort/expense to do that. I guess I'm just not ready to let go of the little guys yet, even though I'm so looking forward to siege!
    AW! Congratulations and Bestest of Wishes to you and the Missus Boc! That's one way to ensure a renewed hobby fanbase! :p 

    Going back to my illness:

    Amalgamous is suited and booted as Waverider, he's just waiting for his mail-order melee sidearm!

    Trying my bestest to show off the tiny wee sliver I glued in place to give him his wee rebreather mask bit (yes, what a surprise, Mister Pernickerty couldn't let having the exact same visor silhouette lie).
    This Waverider might be a little scruffy and not-quite-factory finish round the edges but he is mine!
    Plus I'm quite chuffed about how my attempt to keep some character dec in gun mode worked out.

    Ship-shape indeed, me Lubbers!

    before I forget: congrats, a new life is always reason to celebrate! (brace for impact! :) )

    and here's Furman's last addition to Earth Wars storyline


    also, and if anyone has time, during my last stream (reading out of infestation)
    I ... did that thing where you watch a (music) video clip and instead of singing the song u sing what you see... well I wasn't singing...
    its NOT slapstick commedy, but its funny.. at times... it takes a sec to kick inn... anyways :
    the question: does anyone have any suggestions on what title to give the video
    or any advice (if its funny or not, should i just take it down?)


    have a nice day ya'll

    Not a bad weekend brain guess, Brian, big lizard heed for a big lizard heed it is indeed! Not sure about what body to nab for the head yet, gonna compare & contrast with the lads I have in hand and ponder it.
