    Speaking of nefarious porpoises, this might be the Poifect Crime!

    I did not expect him to come together so quickly, especially with my doubts about the wee helicopter snap model I used possibly still being a wee bit big for the process (I thought 1:144 scale would be the better size match but the 1:115 Apache model was so cheap, £3 posted, that I thought, why not try before you buy a more expensive but smaller scale model?) but, by Gum, if the last bits of metallic blue didn't half go on easy!

    Just a bit of snagging to do now, and maybe some green at the feet and sides of the shell back to pull 'copter mode together a bit more visually but, as ever, I am well chuffed!

    Right, who is the douchenozzle who ordered vhs boxes for the surprise I’m making that didn’t take into account they’re slightly slimmer than I thought and may not fit the intended purpose? Yep.

    Fingers crossed it will all still fit, or I’m going to have to get something rush printed instead. Thankfully I’ve got a design which will work, just not what I intended - boo

    Is that in Chessington? Looks very much like a street I used to visit for..........reasons. Lots of reasons.

    MP Dinobot has no tracking update since it left Tokyo where others have been receiving theirs left and right even with SAL. Patience may indeed be a virtue, but it also sucks.

    Thanks guys. Honestly, I'm not sure how she'll be. At 86, a fractured spine could mean she never walks again. It certainly will limit her already limited mobility. It sucks extra because she fell trying to answer her room door when a dementia patient was knocking in the middle of the night. We brought this up with the management on the first day she moved in, that it wasn't appropriate to mix patients and even the carers told us the dementia patients can get violent. The manager said they were looking to rehouse the dementia patients else where and it would take a few weeks. 2 months later, nothing done and this happens. Also worth pointing out, £1200 per week that place cost us.

    I'm looking into how to complain, the Care Quality Commission seems fairly toothless. I think there's social care ombudsman so they're next on my list.

    On another note: Will definitly have got to get Dinobot because it's August 12, 2018 and Blueyesferno is still my favorite MP to date.

    @Braddock @Underlord @barry This Gobots thing really is an interesting development. i know Sweet FA about them. Part of me excited to have a new 'thing' to look into. Transformers has become such a big part of my life the last few years, I feel like I know too much. I miss the mystery. It wasn't so long ago I had to tfwiki any combiner to try to find out the component bots. Part of me is scared about my free time/money

    Cheers guys, and good advice C. Incidentally, crossblades is in the comic, so it's nice seeing your current project.

    And yeah, convoy, that sounds aweful!

    Hilarious! Love me some 90s xmen. And if you're paying scalper prices anyway, the mezco one:12 one is on the horizon...


    Intriguing!

    Cool, Danny John-Jules (Cat from Red Dwarf) will be on the next series of Strictly - It may give me a reason to actually watch it.

    Greetings gentle threadizens!

    Presenting tonight, just for you, the proof that The Last Knight is G1!

    (Spoiler-tagged for anyone who hasn't seen either.)

    Evidence no. 1: introducing.....Nemesis Prime!

    01-Nemesis Prime is G1.jpg

    And he's mad at Bee!

    02-Here's Bee in trouble with him!.jpg

    So mad they FITE!

    03-FITE!.jpg

    It doesn't look good for Bee...

    04-It doesn't look good for Bee!.jpg

    Bee
    : "I am Bumblebee, your oldest friend!"

    05-Prime, listen to my voice!.jpg

    Bee
    : "Optimus, I would lay down my life for you."

    06-That's right, I have a voice and am not R2D2 as you may have thought.png

    Nemesis Prime
    : "Bumblebee?"

    07-CONFUSION.jpg

    Nemesis Prime
    : "Your voice...I have not heard it..."

    08-Quintessa's spell.jpg

    Optimus Prime
    : "....since Cybertron fell."

    09-is broken!.jpg

    Optimus Prime
    : "What...have...I...done?"

    10-insert TLK quote here.png

    Optimus Prime: "Never mind, come here..."

    11-Awwww.jpg


    Optimus Prime
    : "...and have a hug."

    12-Winnage! Now attack evil sky world!.jpg


    Bumblebee
    : "Thanks, boss. But Cybertron is still falling....into the Pacific Ocean so it can eat the Earth because the Earth is really Unicron, so we'd better attack our actively evil carnivore homeworld in order to rescue our slumbering worldeater adopted home, which will be easier if you remember you can fly, because reasons."

    So there you have it. Bayformers is G1, which means the Beast Era is Bayformers, and of the chicken and the egg, the answer is MUNKY.

    Who's blue, of course, like the baboon in the song.

    Danny John-Jules was a dancer before he was an actor, right? Isn’t that... kinda... an unlevel playing field?

    I was wondering that myself, like he's actually a hoofer, innee? Maybe he's just not daft enough to refuse a tasty paycheck just because a coked-up Beeb researcher didn't get past 'Red Dwarf actor'?

    I think they've done that sort of thing several times before, mind you he'll be 58 so that'll slow him down a bit.

    Actually had a day off work today, first time since I went to Iceland in January!

    Have been having fun with some (mostly) modern CHUG.

    That does look very good, I do wonder if it might look out of place with the legends. Probably have to upgrade all the ones I have. :lol

    Well that’s the plan written out. 50 minutes should be fine (hopefully)
