    Just read Maz's Headmasters article and Napalm's Constructicons article.
    Different styles, both hugely enjoyable, thank you guys, great reads!

    WOWSER!!! You killed it PG, to hard to pick a favourite, they're all amazing.

    Bookmarked, just need to grab a nice cuppa and i'm on this!

    Could you get him to do a bank transfer maybe?
    If you're worried, or smells fishy just cancel his bid, then block his ass too.

    I'm waiting for mine to arrive from Kapow. Pretty excited!
    I wonder if folks will still keep their Takara version on order after having the Hasbro version for a while?
    I fancy drowning in Constructicons.

    Thanks guys. Hugely appreciate the feedback. I've really enjoyed working on this one. Combined the big fella not long ago. Holy fuck. That's all I need to say right now.

    Amusingly, making Devastator was how I spent the time I should have been working on a 121 presentation I don't want to perform after participating in a group assessment I don't want to do for a job I have realised that deep down I don't want. I've been pushed into it/convinced myself it would be a good move after previously stepping away from management and it's 3 and a half hours tomorrow evening I'm just going to turn up for.

    Ah well.

    I have until 5pm should I care to give rigging something up a shot. But shades of 'Been there, done that' accompanied by the glorious ringing of alarm bells are seriously putting me off. I'll show my face. It is a gorgeous face. And I want to keep it as such.

    So does Devastator hate Mixmaster too? Is he always stubbing his left foot?

    With the regular Hasbro CW release, and the eventual Takara version on order, I have to draw the line somewhere, otherwise I'd have said yes.
    When these turn up I'll have 7 sets of Constructicons (8 sets if I include Hulkie).
    And I don't own any Bayverse ones or Giant, Herc or Gravity B.
    In fact, once the Takara set arrives, I will only be after one more set, and that will be a proppa MP set (if it ever exists).

    Are you considering Gravity Builder?

    I'm still on the fence with Gravity Builder and Takara Devastator.
    If I go the Gravity way then I feel like I'll be the only one on here.

    Cheers Vanessa, so glad you enjoyed it!

    All the best

    Targetmasters?
    I still have my childhood Cyclonus and Scourge targetmasters because they rock.

    G1 Cyclonus

    I mean, look at that. 9 quid brand new. Those were the days.

    Or maybe powermasters?
    Darkwing and Dreadwind were ace. I never had them. Almost got them once but was denied at the last minute.

    I still have Darkwing and Dreadwind, they're one of the few G1s I don't plan to get rid of...

    Waiting for the TT Devy and Hulkie (that will be 7 Devys if Engineer General is included) is feeling harder than it should do thanks to Napalm.

    Curse you and your easy way with a phrase and pictographical prowess!

    Back in the knackers-yard with nothing but an endless Internet to take the edge off and a bunch of things I've avoided so far singing that siren song of "buy me, and we will release lots of endorphins to make you less bored" full blast.

    No I'm not considering Gravity B. The individual 'bots & alts are just not close enough to the Constructicons characters I know and love.
    The Constructicon sets I own are:

    Original G1 sets x2, (one opened, one sealed for possible AFA treatment).
    Half size KO G1 set.
    3/4 size KO G1 set.
    Energon set.
    Hasbro CW (incoming)
    Takara UW (incoming)
    Hulkie (incoming unless some twonk on the Hulkie thread hounds me off completely).

    Good luck if you choose Gravity B though, I can't remember anyone else on the UKTD thread saying they were getting it.

    I'm holding out hope for a proper Masterpiece Constructicons set, true to the G1 toys/'toon, not sure if it will ever appear though.

    I hope you can do Snapdragon and Scorponok, as they were the only two Headmasters I owned, and both were awesome G1 toys.

    Here's where you need to draw the line - All of them!

    So, it seems my 9 year old ipod touch is giving up the ghost and refusing to charge - does anyone have recommendations for a good small tablet for me to get? - currently looking at something like the 8 inch galaxy note for size.
