    It's fine. I get picked up by the Police all the time and they frequently describe me as glorious.

    Iron Factory's Crystalys just arrived. Need to go to bed but initial thoughts are 'Up there with Soul Reaper and City Commander'.

    Repainting the black parts in German Grey and that seems to have done the trick. Looks less like Kickback now.

    'Tis nothing Nonnef won't be doing better!

    Holy SHAZBOT! Not only did ASDA give me the beat-up TR Bee to Hubcapsise for just £3 BUT Big Bradders Tescos had from NOWHERE sprouted £8.75 Wave 2 TR Voyagers, a second Astrotrain seemed too Greedy but I couldn't pass up Ol' A3 at that price! :eek:

    Well, my Goodness - turns out that the B&M Home store near Bradders Big Tescos has Sixshots, CW Skywarps and a Screamer PLUS the bargain Deluxes & Legends.
    So that means someone is headed home with an 11th Sharkticon to paint up as a Company Officer, a Krok and a spare Perceptor for...Reasons.

    Went into my local B&M today in the hope they'd got their Transformers act together and.. nope. Some bollocks RC bumblebee, some turbo changers and a few TLK legends. I did pick up legends Dragonstorm and Megatron. Megatron is surprisingly good, great lil' desk bot.

    I've also spent a bit more time with MP Barricade, and I like this naughty boy. A lot.

    The elephant in the room here is the static forearms/hands, but at least the hands are fixed at a fairly decent angle The flail weapon will likely stay in the box because to me it looks ridiculous, and I would have much preferred a little Frenzy, even if it was unable to fit into the chest.

    Everything else is great, though. Bazza has heft and feels solid - there's a fair bit of die cast here, and he definitely feels more substantial than MP Bumblebee. Oh, and Dat Car mode...

    BTW, @Brooticus, what a lovely, almost raunchy, reminder of what we started making with TF Noir.

    I don't know how serious @scubaboy31 is, but he is suggesting we competitively neck bottles of Covonia cough syrup at TFN and try to finish it.

    On my way back from B&M, pretty much the same stock as everyone else mentioned and none of it too thrilling aside from GNAW!! I bought 3, because that's all they had. So if anyone else sees Gnaws I categorically WILL take them off your hands because there's no such thing as too many.

    They had a handful of Bumblebees and a couple of Kickbacks, the rest were all RID or small movie toys.

    I got the last Sixshot though - the only other TR aside from Legends - so if anyone wants it, let me know!

    Oh, there's a model shop across from B&M and they were having a closing down sale so I got a bunch of cheap Tamiya 10mls. Which was nice.

    No large TLK figures, no deluxes - bummer, I was hoping for a cheeky Percy - and the only big TR figure was Sixshot. I got Gnaws but THEY'RE MIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIINE!!!!!!!!

    I WILL HAVE ALL OF THE GNAWS!!!!!

    I've been listening to the My Dad Wrote a Porno podcast recently, so maybe I've been subconsciously influenced...

    But yes. Do it. Even better, get shitfaced and record a readalong. ;) 

    So, pictures.

    Hi all. These guys arrived from Kapow yesterday, except TR Overlord. He's only in the pic because Giga & Mega have commandeered his alt mode.
    I swapped out LG Overlord's with TR Overlord's waist as it was too blue for my liking. Gave LG Blitzwing the T30's sword and 3rd party gun.
