    in prep for my planned sick leave next week (manager preferred me to take holiday - was promptly told to shove it), I'm gonna have a mass Netflix catch-up - still got the last third of Jessica Jones S2 to get through - really such a slog - which is a damn shame as I loved the first series - but i'll endure it, then have the following to get through -

    Luke Cage S2
    IronFist S2
    Better call saul (S4- is that the most recent?)
    and if I've got time, I'm going to start Daredevil S3 - am very tempted to bump this to the top of the list as I adored the first 2 seasons..

    Ghostbusters Firehouse turned up t'other day too - easily the most I've ever spent on plastic crack in one transaction - and mother of god, you get a lot for it - it's literally bigger than our coffee table - cannot wait to get cracking with it..

    also had a cheeky win on the premium bonds - nothing massive, but will probably tip me over the edge to pre-order some SIEGE stuff from the mighty Kapow..

    That the lego one? Mate of mine has it. Perhaps the most impressive lego set I've seen outside legoland. Once it's built, you will never regret it.

    indeed it is - it looks freaking incredible - have not been so blown away by a 'toy' in a very long time - although I did see someone building the new Hogwarts at a lego show last weekend and even the wife was spellbound by it.. unfortunately that also means she knows how much it is, which makes purchasing it that little bit harder to justify...

    I just don't have the room for the LEGO stuff I would want - like the Firehouse, Doctor Strange's Sanctum, The Tower of Orthanc or the bloody Milennium Falcon - so I'm seething with jealousy. I got most of the Jabba The Hutt stuff for Mrs Ottertron but had to swerve the Sailbarge due to lack of room :( 

    I have to say, after having just finished the latest series of Better Call Saul, that at this point I actually prefer it to Breaking Bad. It has more likeable characters for one, and Kim Wexler is a total fox for another.I totally gave up on Marvel Netflix, though, as I just find they all drag heavily. The Defenders was the last one I watched all of and I don't feel like I'm missing anything. Don't even bother mentioning The Gifted or Croak And Dagger either. Zzzzz...

    I'll just wait until Runaways and Legion come back, thanks very much.

    @Ukmets - mine is being redelivered on Saturday. I feel a bit daft now after having ordered him before we got to see Siege Shockers but, hey, he cost waay less money than fancy pants cyclops will. I'll probably bung some Reprolabels on him and do a knee mod at some point.

    Still waiting on the Zoids Gannontoise I ordered nearly a month ago though. Grrrrr.

    to be fair, it's very rare that I spend that amount of money on lego - this is very much a culmination of just over a years saving, carefully finding space for it when we redecorated the lounge earlier this year, and a little bit of wanting to treat myself after a particularly trying year - if 2019 is anything close to 2018, i'll probably be sectioned by the end of it ( that's not me being flippant with mental health - I do actually think I had a small breakdown earlier this year) - which should make the building experience all the more therapeutic..

    Still haven't got through Legion S2. I know it's DC but you looked at Black Lightning? That was better than I expected.

    Can't get into any of the DC shows at all tbh. I'm currently living in fear of what they'll do to Doom Patrol. I think I just don't much like comics in any other media other than comics - they always lose a lot in translation. I'm expecting to cringe my way through The Umbrella Academy, despite it being one of my all-time favourite comics :S

    I really hope Master Made do a Sky Lynx, once the 3P Lynx-off starts up in earnest.

    That's a very good price, but I might hold out to see if it gets discounted like Greatshot did. Now watch it sell out and the after market prices to make :lol

    I got POTP Optimus for a £10 thanks to vouchers from work. Then made this on my phone in five minutes.

    It's less than £110 on kapow, I'm impressed and severely tempted.

    Sorry late to the party.

    It took us 19 hours to put that together! Tis an awesome build (you should watch the film whilst building for added awesomeness).

    Okay, Chris, you've made a good start on wee Waverider, let's not rush it though, eh? Just let it cure and do the next step in the morning, yeah?

    Ah.
