    it's getting hard to resist buying a new figure, thinking about picking up the MS Avengers Hulk just to have something new to mess with.

    So apparently this is iGear's magical month when the PP05's will finally be shipped, can't wait to get them and sell them, gonna use the money for Hot Toys Hulk so hope i can sell them prior to p/o's.

    Turned 22 today, birthdays dont half get rubbish as you get older. I kinda miss the days of having lots of power rangers or beast wars to unwrap.

    Leadfoot was done with this pen. UNI COLOURED PAINT MARKER PEN MULTI SURFACE OIL BASED OPAQUE OUTDOOR MARKING | eBay

    It's very fine and a nice brighter silver than a sharpie. I still go "outside the lines" sometimes though. Got a black one which is good for wheels to fix that lol. Still got the problem of the silver rubbing off on my fingers the most. Examining ways to fix that.
    I've done a lot of custom work with paint pens recently. Nearly done so when I have I will show pics.

    I think I did Kup with the Sharpie colour.

    So you were the person that got that :lol  Got a text from Shockscream going "bugger, my eBay app didn't remind me about that Erector, and it only went for £7!" :lol 

    Happy birthday mate!

    There is another...

    High profile footy matches are a great time to nab a bargain!

    Happy Birthday DKR! 22? Oh, you poor soul! ;)  The best thing about getting older is that you quickly realise you can buy your own presents for yourself... all year round!

    I have this section of the HMRC site bookmarked as I find it a little easier to understand. HM Revenue & Customs

    Section 3.4 I believe I posted about a few weeks ago and may be of some use to some people

    Happy birthday dkr! Same boat as me eh, well it's as Broot said- just ask for money, and buy yerself a huge stinking pile of crack.


    Plastic crack :D 



    I prefer being this age for the simple fact I CAN buy all my own goodies all year round. No more scrimping and saving, just lots of toys and games. When my first proper paycheque with a proper job comes along, I may joygasm and die.

    Happy birthday dude, hope you've had a good day
    seriously can't remember my 22nd

    I'm confused,
    His app didn't remind him that an item was gunna sell cheap,
    So what if the app reminded him?
    Would he of canceled the auction, or did something unspeakable like get a mate to bid it up,
    Otherwise what could he of done to alter the winning price,

    I'm not knocking anyone, I'm just saying

    Here here
    Also when you buy your own pressies you always get what you want - which leaves out any major disappointment,

    I still remember crimbo 85 opening a soundwave shaped pressie, I ripped open the wrapping paper from the side revealing a pic of the wave man himself - I started to cheer loudly but this quickly turned to sorrow when i un-wrapped the front revealing those stupid transformers walkie talkies, thing is I had to keep up the cheering as not to upset my parents or seem ungrateful,
    I did get alot of use from those walkie talkies, maybe they wernt that bad after all,

    Thanks guys! I've bought myself a ton of plastic crack this year, the annoying thing is i have to wait til the end of the year and beginning of next to get it all. HT Hulk is gonna be epic tho, my grails have always been a massive detailed ("MP") Hulk figure and a true G1 MP Starscream, thanks to MP11 i have one of those, next year i should have the other :) 

    In other news, man that Jap Knockout is ugly, the severe lack of paint apps is bad enough then they give you terrible stickers and put ports all over him. Probably behind the times here but my Tesco just got the Ratchet wave in.

    The ebay app alerts you when an item your bidding on/watching is about to end. Usually the last 5 or 10 minutes i think.

    Its saved my bacon loads of times when ive been watching something for several days and forgotten about it.

    Happy birthday - enjoy! Yep you're not wrong. As others have said, the blow is softened by buying your own tho'. 22? Wow don't remember that at all.....

    Again, nice work! Will have to get some of these. A black one is a top idea though, will hide my ham-fisted attempts. :dunce 

    Didn't know that the app could send alerts. Doh! That would make life easier. Cheers.

    Oh boo hoo, turning 22.

    Turn your music down and get your hair cut.

    By my age, all you get on your birthday is indigestion and mouse cack on your cabinets.

    Maybe a utility bill in the post.

    Grr. Youth.

    I'm off to listen to Radio 4 and shout at all the people who are wrong about politics on it.

    On topic: Transformers are a thing I like.

    (Secretly: Happy Birthday.)

    Its very useful. Its how I finally won a classics Jetfire a couple of years back. I was round the mrs's brothers really drunk and my phone started vibrating....

    Excellent final tonight, its a shame the Italians got hammered as they looked good for the first 30 minutes and were decent throughout.

    Spain are on another level though.

    Podemos!

    Sorry but I am snickering at the people that believed the first pictures of it being metallic red. ;) 
    Luckily Reprolabels will fix both the Hasbro and Takara versions...

    Haven't been following any prime toys, just seen that on the news page and was shocked at how bad it was. Those stickers look pretty good tho
