    Always nice to see your pictures here, particularly loving the Action Masters and the Mini bot comparison shots :thumb

    I might still dip my toe in with that one but wanted to try a voyager size first.

    Publicity still from season 3 of Chancers of Velocitron.

    Season 3 is well regarded by fans as a high point in the show's run, with a tightly paced story arc from start to finish. When this image first leaked, fans went crazy over the reappearance of season 1 villain Nova Prime as well as the crossover of Autobot combiner Infernus Magnus from the main Transformers series.

    What surprised many was that Nova Prime actually joined the Chancers as a full member for several episodes, although the alliance was not to last. In a dramatic two-part season finale Prime formed a partnership with Mega (who had discovered her true identity as Megatronus in a memorable mid-season twist) and the two joined together to defeat the villain Azalea, before absconding together for mysterious reasons.

    Sadly season 3 featured a greatly reduced role for Hot Shot after his star turn in season 2, with few appearances and almost no spoken dialogue. This was due to his voice actor Phil Stiny's recent diagnosis of throat cancer which prevented him from returning to the role. While Stiny since made a recovery Hot Shot was re-cast for season 4.

    Preferring a more sleek 'Toon look for my Camera Bros, trying to figure out what exactly to do with the rest of 'em has resulted in this G1 Megs-alike monstrosity!

    It's great that game worlds can be so big but it's still nice to have a more linear experience and I've been taking a break from Spidey the past few days and have gotten further into The Last Of Us which is really wowing me, it's got a lot of zombie apocalypse story clichés in it but the whole package is done so well it doesn't matter, I don't play through many games more than once but am already looking forward to going through this again on a different difficulty level.

    When I got to the first bit where your character rides a horse I wondered whether the physics would compare with Red Dead 2 but Naughty Dog thankfully didn't go there.

    They do get bonus points for including a random appearance by some monkeys and for being the 3rd PS4 game in my early collection that has squirrels in it :D

    Question is, does that gun fire like a machine gun, or more like a cannon?

    Went in the entertainer today and checked out their selection. A good nice fresh load in there now. Mostly cyberverse and bumblebee. Not enough SS for my liking though.
    Cyberverse, the Leaders are nice a chunky couple of bots, maybe a bit oversized for the warriors But really the warriors and the ultras are trash.
    Bumblebee, some good cross size class gimmickage, the Nitro class figures feel a bit like the allspark figures of this movie, big hollow simple shells of transformers that have a gimmick that fits inside, feel and .look like there's nothing there, the power plus figures look like cheap trash too though. The one step replacements the power figures look fun and simple though. drop kicks car mode is neat.
    Alot of almost tempting stuff at the current 25% off.

    I did pick up ultimate cyberverse Megatron. But after playing with him a bit immediately regretted it, not because he's a bad toy I'm sure he'd be great for kids, but he doesn't feel like something I should be owning
    For £23 I may end up gifting him to someone at Christmas.

    P/CP is coming! - tracking say it'll be here by close of play tomorrow - fairly certain it'll show today - superb!

    need to get a dedicated sales post uptogether, but in the meantime, CW liokaiser & POTP elita1 & Moonracer remain on the sales board -

    will also listen to sensible offers on TR Nautica, and most of the TR leaders are probably up for the chop too..

    Same! Mine's showing at being at the Leeds delivery hub from about 6:30pm tomorrow, so I think there's a fair chance I might see him today too!

    If there was two characters that I really wanted to make it through Lost Light it was Magnus and this guy.

    So, I finished watching the Power of Grayskull doc last night and the thought occurred, after having heard the Filmation team's woes with Standards & Practices regarding He-Man being "too violent" and the following doubling down on She-Ra, did our beloved cartoon show end up the "better"/more enjoyable show because on the sheer violence they could get away with because they were "just robots" because our robodudes just straight up brawl with a frequency He-Man could never get away with? Also child psychologists of the 80s were apparently SUPER misogynist, the only physical power move they'd permit her was "mostly accidental ballet kick"?! No wonder MOTU & She-Ra were so dull!

    In the process of moving into my room and found that the my Best of UK soft back was coming loose at the spine. A lot of double sided tape, large board and a few pins later, I have a canvas :D
