    Thanks a lot folks.

    I agree their postage is a bit hefty. There are a few Masterverse bits on there as well as Origins Roton which I have my eye on.

    VERY Happy with how this swap to make 'Kamakura' into a 'Throwdown' went - NOW Sean looks like someone trained by Snakes, Tommy, & the Arashikage!

    Less happy it's now £7 cheaper at SAF to do this now, especially as I was hoping to shift "Training Outfit" Nunchuck!

    Ah, well, at least there was the unexpected bonus of getting a proper pistol to go with the V.1 Snakes' holster and suppressor (that came with the naff NERF gun with a hole in it as stock), which could then go to my Custom "Transitional" Snakes so Sean could get his own holstered pistol & suppressor! SCORE! (With a bit of a deduction for the extra £7 quid!)

    Just finished xmen tas. Except for the second half of season 5 where they changed animation studio amd the writing seems to have gone wonky, that show more than holds up. Also means I can now start 97 tomorrow. I believe I'm 5 episodes behind. Easy enough to marathon up on.

    Further to (re)watching Short Circuit 1 and 2 recently, I decided I needed a little Johnny 5 in my life. Couldn't decide which I preferred out of these two so shrugged and just bought both...

    Sick to the back teeth of dealing with fucking incompetents. Got a 'Popcultcha' email saying my item had been delivered. No box containing a hundred pounds worth or even a card. The Parcel Farce tracking says delivered. After ten minutes of running the parcel number through various trackers I finally get a picture of my neighbour's front door (I think) - who still isn't home all these hours later.

    If they'd left a card I'd be happy enough but all the fucking around boils my piss. It's completely unnecessary.

    Thoroughly enjoyed "Casino" but that was no surprise as I have yet to see anything from Martin Scorsese that I didn't like and I've only scratched the surface of his body of work.

    After I've seen "The Irishman" again I'll probably be giving "Gangs Of New York" a go.

    Paid a deposit on Pantera from the MOTU inspired Legends of Dragonore line,

    The other colour scheme for this figure was apparently a BAF but this one looks nice and the scale and style should be a decent fit with MOTU Origins.

    No knee articulation is the only real miss but I'll see how it goes, as yet there isn't any of the other regular sized figures that have caught my eye but the dragon looks fantastic!

    I'd be surprised if Mattel ever made Granamyr for Origins like they did MOTU Classics so something like this might make up for that!

    If you have to tack a License onto your Parody, you very clearly aren't confident in it's inherent comedy selling it!
    Why would any actual fans of Golden Axe tune into a show taking the piss out of the thing they enjoy? "Hope you like your orange juice with a turd floating in it, guys!" :rolleyes2

    My thoughts exactly. I'm just glad they didn't get a hold of Streets of Rage!

    Speaking of poor decisions, why would you design a decent Joe update like Classified Nunchuck, then give him two huge swords, when he originally had one, two sets of funky claws (Neat!), but two pairs of nunchucks that are scaled like he got them from a kids ninja costume set?
    It's not that they're unrealistic, actual nunchucks are probably that relative scale IRL but most Classified Joe weapons are a "Heroic" 1:12, the actual chain length isn't so bad but all four handles are about half a hand to a full hand short for PRESENCE!

    I looked at Quick Kick and he's got the exact same, so I guess I'm fabricating my own if I want to furnish Storm Shadow with his missing V.1 weapon!

    Sorely tempted by the even-more-clearanced SAF Joes but I just know if I punt on Tomax & Xamot Pulse UK will finally have a Power Day/Outlet the Crimson Strike Team!
    If they haven't been hoovered out by next payday, I may just have to nab a Zarana to Custom (into "Goth" Cold Slither Zarana), and a Snake 2-pack or two for MOAR wolves!

    Every time I see the price drop on the twins I keep having to tell myself I don’t need them, despite nostalgia hitting me as I had them as a kid haha.

    Just binged X-Men 97 eps 1 to 5. Absolutely loved it. Even though I've just watched the full old series, seeing my xmen, with their proper voice actors, kicking arse together in that first episode as their tune olays, it really did bring a tear to my eye.


    As for episode 5.....

    FFFFFFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I need a rest after that. I'll watch ep 6 tomorrow because holy fuck! I need processing time.


    Hands down, best X-Men content since first class amd X2.
