    Hmm, looking at last years calendar thread I had the 2017 calendar ready by mid October...

    Righty, that means that once I get the Shitbot card done I'll be rocking up to the printers to get a quote...

    Edit
    Ha, but these cards are gonna be slightly downsized cards, I'll work out a 'proper' card release further down the line.

    Well, I am mighty tempted by these upgrades. In fact, I'd like two sets of the upgrades, and two of the weapons kit (in grey - currently OOS). Are you thinking of getting anything from Nonnef, @Seeaich? Could another bulk buy work?

    Did a couple more shelves in the Detolfs today, tried to go for a 'Rebirth' theme but have been scuppered by HasTaks lack of Autobot Targetmasters and the rest of the Monsterbots in deluxe size....Hmmmm.

    I was going to use TM Hot Rod, Kup & Blurr. However I realised that I never found a United Recoil for a non-eye watering price so Stepper and Artfire are filling out the ranks for now. I'm also still not sure if I should get a Walgreens B'storm and switch the SDCC one out?

    The rest of the Throttlebots wouldn't go amiss either!

    The 'Cons have fared much better, although like many of us I'm still down a 'Slinger. I've preordered the LG one so it'll be a while yet until that gap on the left gets filled. I still need to get my arse into gear with risers to balance the aesthetic side of things out.

    CALENDAR UPDATE

    Sorry to spam the hell out of it but seeing as I had these out by mid October last year I'm gonna say the deadline for 1st run preorders is going to be September 30. If you're not part of the first run you'll have to wait for a second run to build up to a minimum number and that might not happen.

    So, once I have numbers I'll get the quotes, work out price and start tapping people up for MONIES. So yeah... you should have the Calendar in your hands by November if things go OK...

    Probably a really fit stepmum projected onto the side of a class rock club.

    I tend to use PicsArt and Pixlr together, and composite images between the two.

    PicsArt is becoming a bugger to use though of late. Ads, compression, microtransactions, forcing you to make public your gear to its users.. not good. I am looking elsewhere to do things, but its array of effects remains pretty top notch.

    Sorry, I won't be taking a lead in a group buy of these. I like Percy a lot but, aside from a slight pull for wrist swivels, I'm not feeling the Percy set. The modular gun and pistols haven't grabbed me as necessary as upgrading Broadside was.
    Feel free to moot in the bulk buy group chat though, I'm not gonna get all territorial about it. ;) 

    Might be risking for a greater prize come payday!

    I've put you on the list.

    But if anyone else wants in please PM me, so I don't miss their request! Getting orders between here, FB and Twitter and it's all getting confusing.

    Fair enough, @Seeaich. Is that the TR Siege boxset you are after? That is such a nice looking set. IMO it knocks the Chaos one into a cocked hat. I hope to get the Takara Decepticlones though. They look so good I can't resist! :lol

    £150?! I am actually quite intrigued by the colour scheme on it, but as an owner of the Cybertron version which I paid £50 for at UK retail; they can sod right off.

    That's triple the price in 10(?) years....I'm fairly sure inflation isn't 200% in that period or am I missing something?

    Does anyone else think they originally wanted to call the Dino-combiner 'Volcanus' but someone went '...errrrrr.....hang on a minute' just in time?
