    Anyway, while I choose a few, here's what my photo gallery looks like :lol

    Likewise, I just picked up a heap of them from my parents' house a few weeks ago - seems almost all of my childhood collection has survived (though not necessarily in fantastic condition :p ), including the chap who started it all off those many years ago...

    Wow! Thank you for those, seriously, big fist bumps ahoy!

    The darker greyish or black heads seem to go well with the grey looking chest and black shoulders of SS Thundercracker I think.
    Does TCs head transform or is it more of a Prime Master effort?
    :)

    It's just a solid chunk, no transformation, just like Nitro Zeus's head was.

    Anyway, here's 10 I think look pretty good

    Lovely head you've given them all, just lovely!

    If I had to choose just one it would be... Triggerhappy, closely follow by Swoop, Highbrow and Scorponok!

    Great job and soooo many Titan Masters! Shame we didn't see some of those nimble fingered folks overseas selling just the Titan masters loose? ;)

    I will let you finish up re-heading whilst I tidy up and get sorted for bedtime as work in the morning.

    Thanks again to everyone who have helped out tonight giving me advice and cheeky photos of head. You're all lovely! :p

    Looking very nice! Looking forward to getting the POTP Wave 3 Deluxes Down Under (apparently they've been spotted!).

    Nice!

    Spent the Sunday experimenting with my airbrush gun and started envisioning some customs:

    -MP "like" Paradron Medic from the WJ Arcee
    -Titan Returns Scorponok (from Twinferno)
    -Titans Return Nightbird (from Kup)

    Trying to decide where to get bodies for the Ultra Magnus and Rodimus Prime heads. I liked @Seeaich's Roddy Prime from TR Voyager Optimus, but think that might be more suitable for Ultra Magnus. For some reason I want Rodimus Prime to be a flyer, so maybe another Nitro Zeus body?

    And a belated Northern Hemisphere Happy Father's Day to the Dads/Step-Dads/Guardians out there!

    Best regards,
    Dazz

    Well I’ve popped that in the other thread so we’ll see what happens....I’ve never had hands on with POTP Jazz so I’ve no idea how doable any of this is!

    Sorry to hear you're both having a crappy time of it. I hope things turn around soonish!

    Teasin'! You know I'll lap up a proper Flywheels Hasbro, you saucy sods.

    Lads!

    So I leave the internet alone for a single Saturday and there's news about Counterpunch and the preview for LL#19. Man!
    It's fine. I saw Hereditary and drank a lot.
    But Counterpunch/Punch coming with Prima is interesting. So that just leaves us with Amalgamous and Nexus Prime Masters? Is Blast Off still coming Megatronus and Repugnus with Solus or might there be a last minute change to squeak everyone out, so to speak? The confirmation that it's definitely a dude with twop 'bot modes is very intriguing indeed!

    Finally got a wee bit of time with my Terrorcons yesterday afternoon. Man, Blot! He's incredible. He might even surpass Rippersnapper, who I thought was sure to be the star of the show. Love the transformation sequence for his monster thumbs and robot legs. Very inventive! I think the Terrorcons are going to be the crowning achievement of PotP, pipping the Dinobots to the prize. i've enjoyed the line more than I was expecting to but it still feels a bit oncoherent. Not the Terrorcons though. They feel 100% like the main event here. Abominus looks stunning all put together. I daresay I'll get some photos in tonight. That said...

    Same here. I assumed I'd just got one with shit QC, but it sounds like you've got exactly the same problems.

    Bot of the day is last year's big lad. Still a total stunner! Citybots be too big for lightboxes.

    thanks all for the nods of support - bit shit, but hindsight, saves a few hours commute a day...

    did also learn some VERY interesting gossip from one of the cleaners (honestly, if you want to know what really goes on in a place, get pally with the cleaning staff) - apparently golden boy was given an almighty chewing out by our director after hours one night - key quote was "if you can't do the F-ing job, then eff-off and i'll get in someone who can!" - it would be massive immoral of me to use this to my advantage, wouldn't it? lol....

    weekend contained obscene amounts of football, learning the dark arts of cutting a fitting coving (basically, work inside out and back to front and you'll be fine..), fair bit of whiskey & bloody awesome Terrorcons - seriously look incredible next to UW Computron.

    am heading up London way on Saturday for my annual pilgrimage to Orbital/Lego Flagship store - anyone know if there's much vintage stuff in Orbital at the mo? - may also grab some Studio series stuff- may well cave on Prime today as he's a decent price on Amazon...

    Went in Orbital on Saturday afternoon and honestly it's a bit dry at present, unless you want Vinatge Mask or MP40 - who is definitely not a popular Boy by the number left in the display cabinet - there's not a lot going on compared to their usual stocks. It's that time of the year when current TFs have sold through and they are waiting for the next Wave I guess.

    Morning all.

    Taking the Diaclones for a walk..........

    I don't think it's QC, Mr. Wom, I think he's not supposed to be able to fully straighten out, the mass of his robot head blocks the bird noggin, he's designed like Grotusque with a perma-hunch. It all makes sense when you read his G1 bio, he's a glider not a flyer. I know it surprised me too but he's written more as a Kaiju!

    Thanks, luckily I had another viewing on friday and the guy made an offer as well which I accepted after a bit of haggling, so touch wood should be a quick-ish sale as he's a cash buyer.

    Ah, I meant more the loose and popping off. The dangers of broadly quoting. The QC on mine is dodge as fuck. Even his head fin was popping off.

    Fingers crossed for you!
