    Morning guys,

    I've read on here that some of you are liking Dark Cybertron more now that you've read it in one go from the start to chapter 7, well I had also re-read it up to chapter 5 a while before Christmas and still hadn't fallen massively in love but could appreciate the good parts. I wonder if it's less reading it as a whole and more the noticeable rise in quality for chapters 6 and 7 that I have now read twice since picking them both up on Wednesday. They are both seemingly much better than what has gone before, the Lost Light and Dark Universe sections have been real highlights, enjoyed them a lot.

    I'm growing very fond of Raiz's artwork, especially how he draws Getaway and Magnus, and of course I'll still look forward to Milne's return to the regular run. I'm still finding it difficult to appreciate Rojo's artwork and Cahill's covers, but Casey Coller's regular covers are brilliant.

    "And that way anarchy lies..."

    "He's not even the first person called Tankor to yell at me today"

    Brilliant lines :D 

    All the best
    Maz

    Hells yeah! Been that type of morning here too - actually was listening to Cradle on the walk to work to try and wake/fire me up

    Yeah been an unexpectedly expensive one here, so think that’s me done for the foreseeable future…until something grabs me by the retinas and whispers in my ear that I need it……must stay off ebay, Kapow and the like

    It's not the music they like. They're just really big IT Crowd fans.

    My first foray into 3rd party will be coming in the form of Quakewave at the end of feb and I'm after some recommendations on which Con labels to pick up. I've been looking at reprolabels obviously but not having bought any in the past, it's hard to make out what the difference is between the clear and the white background versions.

    Some of the images I've seen seem to have a really thick white border around the insignia that I really don't like.

    Suggestions/advice would be greatly appreciated!

    I am strangely drawn to that Bic Camera Grimlock on the front page, but I don't know why.

    I don't own that mould yet either...

    Gather, children, Uncle 'Hide has a story.

    Expecting a parcel today. From a board badass of this thread.

    Killing time at home, waiting. Decide I'm safe to pop to the shops for a lettuce, some avocado and cucumber. In the EIGHT MINUTES I'm gone I get a Royal Mail red slip. Dammit.

    Jump on the bike, two miles over to the depot. Of course, the postie isn't back yet and won't be for another two or three hours. I leave my slip at the depot and say, Monday re-delivery please. Dammit.

    But ol' Uncle 'Hide don't die like that. Maybe you can fuck him up but you can't kill him. Nope. I'm on my bike, round and round my 'hood, 'cause I know the man with my goods be here somewhere. So I find him, he's amenable like a champ, and I get my parcel.

    Get it home, expecting KO MP Ravage and Buzzsaw - uh oh - this is Ravage and Rumble. Open the box, it's Ravage and Buzzsaw.

    So, not only do I have my first MP (kind-of) but I totally TF'd it without instructions. Because I'm becoming pro at this.

    It's taken me half an hour to take my arms out of their folded position and stop nodding in satisfaction at the mini buzzard on top of my groceries.

    Pro, I say.

    Now all I have to do is stop myself sliding into MP addiction. Buzzsaw isn't helping. His wings fold and he has rotating ankles. You can't argue with that.

    If this is the standard for KOs, I may well crack.

    Also, stevil, will do what I can but can't bust a machine that won't be bust. A lot of it will come down to how much work I can get done this weekend.

    I was just careening through your neck of the woods in a white van with a new mattress in the back. You're lucky I didn't knock you off your bike!

    Solid work there fella. Now you know how good the mp crack is... buzzsaw is totally representative of how good the rest are.

    Also, managed to track down my metroplex after hours of harrassing TRU. Dude is massive. Now for sticker fun.

    Another one joins the club ;) 

    Congratulations and I really hope you enjoy Quakewave - it's an immense figure.

    I used the white outline reprolabels symbols on mine but the chrome ones look nice as well.

    :lol 

    Unbelievably good aren't they. I couldn't tell the difference between them and my originals. The only real difference was Buzzsaw's tailfins are easier to move.....and that's a good thing.

    You can get Sideswipe for less then 20 quid delivered.......time to go balls deep.
