    GOOD LORD!
    The surgical spirit worked TOO well on the Cloudbursts, it actually leeched some of the red out of 'em as well as stripping off the paint!?!
    Looks like Skyhammer's shell will be getting a dye-dip too!

    Hopefully it's an indication t'other of the wee buggers will dye black easily!

    Slightly more successfully, I couldn't wait for Nonnef so one former Construct-Bot Thundercracker peg plus one vintage Sinnertwin grenade launcher equals...

    The vintage gun is a wee bit darker than the peg but it's blimmin' close enough for me!

    On things it took an embarrassingly long time to twig...

    What can you do with a spare Vector/Metalhawk?

    Funny thing is, in the course of this is the first time I realised that, besides his knees getting looser, my first VP also had two right arms JUST LIKE MY LANDMINE!
    What're the chances of that, eh?
    Luckily VP 2 has tighter knees AND the correct allotment of rightly (& leftly) oriented appendages!

    Star Saber is a great toy! Very jealous! Would love to have an original but I do have the KO which despite some odd colour choices in places, (blue face, really?) still shares enough of what makes the original great to be a good toy in its own right.

    Another Japanese toy I love from jg1 was Sky Garry. I have the brave repaint which, again, opts for different colours but does have an equally rubbish name (death Garry gun!) and is still up there with the best of ‘em in terms of fun and playability.

    Cockpit for micromaster, check.

    facility to carry more micromasters in spaceship mode, check.

    Can turn into not entirely convincing base mode with gun placement, check.

    Comes with micromaster trailers x3, check

    Fun transformation, check

    Just enough Japanese G1 goodness, check

    Please excuse the shit pic, lighting and lack of thought that went in to this. Loft conversion is in full swing now so everything is everywhere! Could only lay hands on 2 trailers as well!! Arghh!

    I think I got everyone there - wow, quite overwhelming, thank you all so much! This really is the best place on the interwebs. Just got the little one to sleep, so now it’s enchiladas, cider and beers!

    Had a nice birthday - mrs was teetering between money for TFN and something else as a gift, she chose the gift which is a pre order for .....

    7D6F8E79-E872-4604-A13B-52D665113342.png

    And the new blu-ray as well. Happy days I’ve always wanted one of these!!!

    Also, we decided that we wanted a playmate for Bailey... so we went to the rescue centre in the week and got lucky.

    Note from Mrs Brum Bot: Bruno wasn’t that chump’s choice at all. It was mine and he’s just a glory seeker. Thank you :)

    You definitely need to get Bruno a wee white doggie vest so he can save Nakatomi Kennels!

    "Oh, man! Am I gonna have to get a 3P kit now too?"
    "Nope."
    "Why not, Brain?"
    "You still have a Beast Wars Primal, you numpty!"
    "Oh, yeeeeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah!"

    Plus we are very welcoming as our household is 50% Yorkshire. Any more takers for Curry-Con between the close of main hall and Stan Bush on saturday at TFN?
