    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.

    Definitely feeling the love for that Springer :) 

    Dino-Riders - I do still have a couple of the dinosaurs somewhere back at my parents' house - I'm sure that they'll turn up whenever I finally get around to clearing the last of my stuff out from there ;)

    Wow - that Springer is the best mainline figure I've seen in a long time.

    I was just trying to say that I think the placement of kibble is less obnoxious on the Bumblebee Movie (Beetle) Bumblebee Masterpiece than it is on the G1 2.0 Cartoon style Bumblebee - the ill fitting backpack - gaps under his arms and badly implemented car windo storage - looks like the to needed more work - not that 2018 Movie Bee is perfect - his weapon storage could be better and they could have done a better job with the car doors.

    I think the IDW one if fine for an IDW collector or someone displaying designs of that style - but it's like the distinction between Classics/Generations Kup and Titans Return Kup. They are for different purposes personally I think it's likely going to be an improvement over the Thrilling 30 one - if only because it might tab together a bit better than the Thrilling 30 one fails too.

    There is no problem with there being multiple versions of the same character really - just look at how many toys Soundwave and Shockwave are getting lately. I'm not going to get in a pickle because Hasbro made another Springer ; especially as The Siege theme seems to suit the Cybertronian / Future look of the 3rd season of the Cartoon era quite well.

    Said a final goodbye to my niece yesterday, it was a really nice service and everyone was asked to wear something pink as it was her favourite colour.

    Springer is one that I'm definitely tempted by. I have a Gen30 one from the Platinum set, but his colours are weird and I don't like him sharing a body with Rodimus, even if it was his body first, Rodimus was here first.
