    You lads have just written Transformers: Infernal Affairs/The Departed (depending on whether you go Lau & Mak or Scorcese)! :lol

    @Avon @Insurgent I think it's that time, summer coming to an end and we've all probably pushed ourselves a bit .I think it's our bodies reminding us autumn is coming, and with our a chance to rest and recuperate

    I too am feeling exhaustion setting in. The last few months have been non stop for me. Currently trying to find out how to complain to aunts care home. They denied her acres to hospital after a fall claiming it never happened and it was all dehydration induced imagination as there's nothing recorded in her log. After fighting with them and getting her to a&e it turns out she has a fractured spine. Not sure how she's imagined that , which means that the care home staff were actively trying to cover it up.

    Bloody hell, i hope she's gonna be ok. Get some standards agency on those buggers, trying to cover up something like that is utterly disgraceful.

    I had a Go bot Optimus Prime wannabe when I was a kid (still love him :D ), then picked up some Robo Machines ones in the late 90's. My Crasher has black stickers instead of blue as seen earlier in the thread. From what I can gather Go bots were released by Tonka, Machine Robo was released by Popy, but only in Japan, and Robo Machines was released by Ban Dai.

    It's a crying shame Punch/Counter punch got most story in the Headmasters series.
    also a belated happy birthday to @Braddock who is no longer missing in action ;)

    Love this idea, with the music to Hart to Hart as the theme tune.

    Also, I didn't post any speedrun in a long time cuz I was waiting for Teej to beat Celeste 30 minutes any% run and he just did.
    And it's beautiful.
    I mean, when he was at 34 minutes it was already incredible to watch, now it's pure drug.




    Des bisous !

    Christ, it's kinda weird seeing the X-Men as a vanilla team like that, compared to how complicated things have gotten in the last decade or so in the comics. I'm not even a reader of the X titles but have absorbed enough vicariously to have a vague idea of how much of a clusterfuffle it has become.
    Agreed on the others (especially Airazor) but does Rattrap need to be MP'd seems decently detailed and the right size in his T30 toy.

    When there's £100 a pop to be made, TakaraTomy will leave no character unturned in their search for the dollar. Or yen, I suppose, in this case.

    Also, these boys arrived today.

    I never thought I'd find a Slugslinger for less than scalper prices, so this is a blessing. Krok, I got because I love the crocodile mold, and those colours! That scavenging! Those colours!

    I don't suppose anyone has an idea where one might avail oneself of an OTFCC 2004 Exclusive Omega Spear or the Rodeo Magenta Energy Spear besides trawling Ebay and/or taking the US shipping hit?
    I have nefarious plans for a spear of such a hue!

    Yeah, I do think Rattrap does need a MP at some point. This is just a revision of the character, ultimately I want something that matches the show appearance for more. Do remember, it wasn't that long ago when people questioned the need of a MP Primal when there was the 10th anniversary update.

    Anybody fancy this Reveal the Shield Optimus?


    8811682C-60A5-42BB-B87B-1CA676E91826.jpeg

    The sword and shield have found homes with other figures and he’s been transformed twice. (Robot to Trukk and back)

    £5 for TFN dropoff or £6.50 posted?

    The 10th anniversary one being the one with the surf board? Well that one WAS utter gash.

    Ah yes, being born in 1997, all I got was the back draft of the 90s cartoon and comics. It's all I know of is a small team of x-men, kickass Spider-Man and glorified gun-Ho transformers. Pretty good being born in that period, just before the information boom of technology to still have a childhood messing about with toys :)
