    It's what the customer gets out of it l don't understand, like, "Hey, remember that cable subscription you stopped paying for? Well! Have we got..."

    "If you don't behave I'm putting Disney Plus on!"

    @GT2,
    Yep!, it's admittedly not the most snappy of phrases for subliminal purposes but in keeping with the Disney mindset I didn't put much thought into it! :D 

    @Siege Fan,
    Disney Plus programming should be used as white noise to confuse suspects during interrogations. A couple of episodes of Star Wars Content or Marvel Content ( They're all indistinguishable at this point ) and they'll confess to everything you want! :D

    People going from fighting in the street to what can only be described as bland to bland combat :D

    Of the many things I've seen said about Disney Star Wars that was the most damning :D 

    In other news this arrived,
    [​IMG]Mouse Jaw #1 by Brendan Mitchell, on Flickr
    [​IMG]Mouse Jaw #2 by Brendan Mitchell, on Flickr

    Whilst I'm mixed on a lot of the ToG designs I like this one as it's another Trap Jaw for the collection so I'll call it a decent result in spite of the price....you do get a lot of extras but aside from the flame effect all of it is for the Metalhead/Roboto Build A Figure that I'll probably never own but they're compatible with most Origins figures so could also be used for customs.

    Regular Trap Jaw weapons also plug into the arm but would obviously have to be painted white to be a proper match.

    Not sure who will be next from this line for me but probably from the following,

    Skeletor
    Shredder
    Mer-Man
    Bopsteady
    Mikey ( Might be the only Turtle I get because his He-Man wig looks hilarious on other figures! :D  )

    Out of curiosity, does the effect piece work on ordinary TJ or any other blasters?

    Works fine on regular and mini comic TJ in the same way as Mouse Jaw, haven't tested the Cartoon Collection figure yet!

    It has a peg on the end so you can't slide it over a gun barrel....once I've had some lunch I'll give it a go on Rokkon's chest socket and Mekaneck's club!

    Fuck Yeah! :rock :rock :rock :rock 

    As it ships right before my birthday in July I have just negotiated cash towards it as my present from my folks and got an order in! :) 

    Only slight disappointment is that they didn't reuse the other headsculpt from v1 or the Filmation head from v2 but still looks amazing!

    Thought,
    It's probably their last Trap Jaw for the forseeable future but if they do another one then I hope they go for 200x!

    I have now tested the Mouse Jaw flame effect on the following,

    Cartoon Collection Trap Jaw arm ( Perfect fit )
    Rokkon chest ( Perfect fit )
    Mekaneck club ( Peg is too small )

    There I was thinking Mouse Jaw would be my last figure of the tin tongued dolt for for a while then Mondo say "Hang on a minute...." :D 

    The flame effect works really well with Rokkon as it makes it look like he's unleashing a fiery comet tail attack at opponents! :rock

    Scarlett arrived from Pulse this evening so that's a trip to the PO I can add to my walk tomorrow as the one I use is up a big hill even though there's two others that're closer and on the flat.

    No idea how good the figure is in hand as it's sealed in a brown shipper and it's for my friend but she looked decent in pictures and might be one that I regret not getting but aside from the Cobra Ferret and possibly Shipwreck and Quick Kick if I go back and get those it's not like I'm invested in Classified Series although I still think it's probably the best line Hasbro produce at the moment.

    Well, here we go again. I've seen this film a few times now over the years and just never 'got' it. I just don't understand how it gained such cult status. But since I found it in a charity shop today for a quid I'll give it another try and see if it's gotten less meh as I've evolved since my last viewing a decade or so ago.

    My insurance company thought they'd auto renew for me... at 2k dearer than last year. Could have happened too because those feckless fuckers at Microsoft only forward occasional emails when they feel like it, so I'd logged in and spotted it. The email didn't even state the cost, just that I'd gotten a £10 discount....

    Good mind to phone the insurance company and ask how many old people they've ripped off so far in their role as monumental cunts.

    I don't suppose any of you fine folk have ordered from forbiddenplanet.com have you?

    They have some MOTU reduced but I remember hearing that they never send the goods out as their website is so unreliable.

    Their postage is pricy in comparison but I've never had an issue with stuff bought from FP's website when it's in-stock myself. Pre-Orders for figures is a different matter.
