    I wonder if the Female Ghostbusters figures will be $400 a piece in 20 years time as they were so unloved in 2016.
    Or is there some Ross and Ollie in 2036 that will still have them unsold for $5 ?

    In a funny way the whole trend for Multiverserse that Sony failed to get off the ground was supposed to start with this, then is was supposed to start with Venom.. and so on and where did that Multiversal actually origin end up in Madam Web.

    Well, that's me all caught up on xmen. I just want to watch more. The last show to get me this excited and invested was picard season 3 and before that was....... i forget the last time a show had me like this while it was airing. Plenty on catchup (like game of thrones last year). But none while it was airing. Probably chicago fire is the closest.


    Well, guess it's now time to switch to power rangers zeo and continue the zordon era. See what I missed all those years ago.

    I dispise Parcel Farce. Last month, they said they were unable to find our address when delivering my son's new XBOX. I then requested delivery for the next day - nothing arrived.
    I then again requested delivery for a Friday but they delivered the Thursday whilst no one was in! They'd delivered it to our next door neighbour instead.

    Just last week, they tried to deliver some car parts whilst we were away for a few days. I thought "I won't rearrange delivery until we are back". Guess what? They tried delivering it the following day without us requesting it even though their card/tracking tells you to rearrange delivery yourself.
    Luckily our other neighbour was in and he took it in.

    I've had I think 4 deliveries from Parcel Farce over the years and all have had issues.

    In other news, I broke and treated myself to a few MOTU bits courtesy of Forbidden Planet:

    Cannot go wrong for a shade under £60 posted for the lot!
    I'm loving the look of Beast Man with the fur.

    [​IMG]Trap Jaws by Brendan Mitchell, on Flickr

    Other Trap Jaws in my collection not pictured,

    Origins ( mini comic & Turtles of Grayskull )
    Mega Construx ( mini comic )
    Funko POP ( classic and mini comic )....they're both unopened but I can't remember where I put them for safe keeping during all the reorganising of my room as I make space for the new Ferret HQ and occupants.
    Masterverse ( Revelation)

    Pre-orders,
    Mondo Toys v3 ( mini comic )

    Not sure what else could be next, if I could sell some stuff to raise the funds I'd be willing to get the Club Grayskull Classics figure even at aftermarket prices.

    [​IMG]Beast Men by Brendan Mitchell, on Flickr

    I haven't done much with Mondo Beast Man since I got the replacement shoulder pad but will eventually try one of the other heads and give him his whip.

    Because prices dropped on him so quickly I have a second New Eternia Beast Man for the other look but he's with LoP Beast Man in a box whilst my reorganising continues.

    The first Origins Beast Man is using the whip from Classified Series Croc Master.

    The writing style on Toy Habits is very clickbaity and childish, but they're on the ball with getting pictures of new stuff....with Spikor they got an assist from the uniquely voiced Mr Home Arcade who's grown on me a bit of late because he makes me laugh and I want to keep listening to see if his voice ever gives out on him :D

    They're fucking shocking. I've genuinely had more luck with Evri and Yodel.

    Having enjoyed Frozen Empire, wife & I have started Afterlife on the BBC iPlayer (cheers @Insurgent for the nod). We're only about half an hour in, loving it so far - FE was perfectly acceptable entertainment, but this is really good.

    I like the slow buildup and low-level spookiness so far. Not that it feels British but it's more in the line of British ghost stories, with the flickering lights and the scary house and the moving chess pieces. America always has this Muscular Spiritualism going, where ghosts rub shoulders with demons and aliens. I'm sure Afterlife will get there (Frozen Empire started there) and I'll enjoy it too - but so far I'm really enjoying the more, well, spooky vibe :)

    Spikor loves Christmas. Or water balloons. I dunno.

    'Rules from the Bone Throne.' The Masterverse descriptions keep getting worse!

    Stick a bit of string in the top of those accessories and they look like a very old school bomb! :D 

    At least the bio implies Snake Mountain is in one piece and hasn't been scattered into the four corners of the cosmos like Castle Grayskull! :D

    Oi! Webstor is a genius!
    ...

    Supes had gone full hipster and taken up knitting.

    Freddy's sister was an even bigger bitch than he was.

    This shot had to work. Dick already looked laundrette-foolish.

    I'd forgotten Webstor's role in proceedings :D 

    Superman looks like he's enjoying himself a bit too much! :D

    Anyone watch this show?

    If not you really should, especially if you liked Beast Wars.

    I've been tempted to get this superman since the action comics 1000 goes for silly money. And this one smiles. But the other one has a deeper blue that would probably go with gadot wonder woman and arkham batman better. And this one, the cape just isn't quite as nice. What hands does this guy come with? Fist and flying? Does he have a flight stand?

    Fists and splayed fingers hands from memory (I immediately throw spare hands in a box!) and a flight stand. I wouldn't actually recommend this guy though, that headsculpt is AWFUL in hand.

    Oh dear. Guess I'll just keep an eye out for action comics 1000 then. Unless mcfarlane does a proper christopher reeve version.

    They're doing a Reeve but whether or not they can get the headsculpt right... or even put it on the right body! Every other decision recently has been dumb as a rock and screams cost cutting as their RRP increases.

    They are? Oh sweet, I'll hold out for him. Do you know when its meant to release? I'm ok with the suit not being 100% accurate as long as it's close enough, but they gotta get that headsculpt right. Hopefully with a decent shaped cape, fists and flying hands and a flight stand.

    Not sure when but it won't be long, Todd puts out figures at a rate of knots. I'll keep you posted. FYI, you need to PO now. Somewhere like Props and Replicas or Comics because the production runs are stingy now.
