My name's not actually barry. I'm so very sorry. Nov 23, 2016

      Harry, Harold, Barry Barrold! I solved the equation, your name is really Barrold!

        Barrold is my mother.

      You are being an ass and needlessly calling out people for a flamewar. Especially me, who never even replied to anything you said. I am too old to be baited by that and engage you on the same level, but consider this as a warning. Won't hesitate to report you to a mod next time you do this.

        That’s remarkable. A lesser actor would almost certainly have broke by now. Perhaps it’s a little too close to asking for trade secrets, but I’d be interested to hear which texts or practitioners have informed your work.

        Remarkable! A lesser troll would have given up trolling by now. Man, you must be some super-regenerating uber-troll. I bet you have 5 heads and 20 arms and the like. Must be a sight to behold.

      The Bulkhead review was absolutely delicious! Summed up the figure and some of its inspiration quirks great. Man, Animated is in desperate need of more love.

        Hi, Bob. I cleared out the great correspondence. Down from c2400 to c700. Looking forward to getting back up there.

        None really worth sharing, beyond saying the news threads can get a bit silly sometimes (see the current 'debates' on grey/blue in the Galvatron Selects thread).

      Your name isn’t Barry? I feel betrayed. Just like a British person to do that! /s



      (Also, I’m certain that this is a totally original joke that you have never heard before)

        I would ask you to retain the accusations of betrayal for the English. I am a Scotsman! From a place where 'barry' simply means 'very good', or 'deid good', as we might actually say.

        Whoa, I actually didn’t know that. Thanks for teaching me something new lol. Also, I just want you to know that your wordy tangents and semi-speeches are honestly quite awesome, and I find your website quite interesting as it provides a younger fan with more context of what this hobby is like for an older fan. You’re basically like the cool, wise uncle of tfw, now that I think about it.

        Nobody, but nobody, has ever called me wise, cool, or awesome. Or uncle, for that matter. Old, I have definitely been called. Wordy too!
        Thanks man. It’s genuinely nice to know that all my rambling is interesting and even relatable to younger fans. You know you’re the same age as my girlfriend’s daughter. Some world, huh?

      I just read your name isn't barry, and now I don't know how to feel about that... But you're great on a joy to read, so it makes the deception mute.

        Imagine how my girlfriend feels. Two years in and still refuse to tell her my name. And she doesn't even like my writing.

        Thanks, man. It's always nice to know that someone genuinely enjoys me rambling on.

        I love him! I'm not sure how much of it is new toy buzz, but he might be one of my favourite Siege figures. Loving him WAY more than Ironhide.

      You said Miami Vice vibes for POTP Tailgates alt mode. Now idk if you played Vice City but when I see Tailgates alt mode I just hear The Whispers - And the beat goes on.

      Hi there! I see that you've built up a healthy collection from POTP. Could you help me out by scanning the cards the toys come with? I'm trying to document each variant.

      I definitely prefer the sunbow cartoon model to how they drew him in TFUK.
      I can't even imagine him looking like this in the show or movie.

        Heretically, the show (TF:TM aside) doesn't matter that much to me. I was, and am, pretty much all about the UK comics.
