    ‘Fraud not, they’re all boxed up. They’re the Diamond Select ones. I have the whole team plus Zoltar and a couple of unmasked variants. I’ve got a 12” RAH one and a set of Gashopon PVC figures too.

    I was gutted when they discontinued the figures before we could get a Spectra henchman - one of the coolest designs in cartoons and I’d have loved to be able to army build ‘em :(

    Hope the wife feels better dude. Excellent work on xxaron.

    Great figure. I have the RTS version, but the united version is pure sex. Definitely one of those molds Hasbro should have used more than once.

    Some dusting of the shelves around my house has taken place - I daresay that these particular shelves are of the most interest to the denizens of this thread (spoilered for the benefit of anybody who doesn't want a dozen big pics unexpectedly flooding their screen ;)  )...

    Valentine's night is all action in the Boc household. The wife fell asleep right after dinner. Snoozing on the couch. Pregnant people are super sleepy apparently! Thought I'd take a few snaps of one of my latest figures.

    She awoke For a brief moment. And through bleary eyes said "we need to talk about the elephant in the room" gave a giggle and fell back asleep.

    Damn I love that woman.

    Also love this figure. Really compares well to modern CHUG stuff.

    Neo is one of my favourite toylines. I don't really care for the cartoon but the toys have a charm to them I don't get from many toys. The 3rd modes that Takara insisted are a thing are crap though. Apart from the dead dino mode in Guiledart. That's just genius.

    I know what you mean. Stampys weird scissor mode was pants.

    Got to love magmatron. Amazing figure. Definitely my favorite beast wars figure I own. Although bug convoy is turning my head a bit.

    Fuuuuuucking hell - just sold some comics and ended up using everything I earned to buy the last few bits I needed from Shapeways because the bloody prices have gone up on some odd things. 2 4mm Titans Return neck adapters cost a fiver each!!!!

    Massively dischuffed. I’ll have to put the bloody prices up for Fulcrum if I do another run dagnabbit!!!

    I passed on the United version because they still had him green with purple bits. Big purple people eater is the only colour scheme I wanted so the RTS became the first figure I painted up with acrylics over base coat and I never looked back

    This, the detail prices were actually cheaper than the standard so I didn't order another Ironfist backpack as it was literally twice the cost!!!

    I spent the mo ey i stead on a mould making starter kit and shall try to mould a version of it instead

    Oh, new Siege reveals? *checks*

    ...and absolutely nothing takes my fancy. Certainly not Springer, who can’t be as good as his T30 incarnation. I’ve been after a good Thundercracker for ages but this one’s too big and will tower over my other seekers.

    Funny thing. Siege is full of great toys but they’re doing their level best to have me not buy them by releasing characters I already have and don’t want to upgrade.

    Loving two amazing figures? Sounds like yesterday.

    Live with that all the time.

    And yes, I'll buy Springer as well.

    Hnnn. My big boobed boy is looking awesome here. I love the Generations one but he ain't half slim all over. This rectifies that with chest for days.
