    Yeah, I can see that. To be fair, I never saw the Prime Masters at retail anywhere either. I'm mostly annoyed because they're holding up Ironhide & the Micromasters. I'm hoping I'll get them before wave 3 gets released!

    I've still got some of the TF ones on my desk here at work, those things never go off do they?

    In other news, continuing the occasional 'KO MP Megs comes across the latest behemoth oddity that Ralph has picked up from some deviant shopsmith/open air market stall.....'

    Megs - "Oh, what the f**k is this now"?

    Oh, this is my bedside table by the way.

    Laters.

    My stand out films were:

    (Not seen Ant Man & Wasp, nor Captain Marvel)

    Winter Soldier
    GOTG
    GOTG2
    Endgame
    Infinity War
    IronMan
    Civil War
    Cap America: First Avenger
    Avengers Assemble


    Liked parts of the others.

    Ones I thought were poor films (although I still like the characters just didn't rate the films) were:

    Black Panther
    Thor: The Dark World
    Ironman 3
    Spiderman: Homecoming
    Hulk


    I thought all the films brought something to the party, even if it was Carlsberg Special Brew!

    I just watched the Brunt video, and I have to say that he would make an excellent Tankor.

    I will accept an Armada Demolisher retool too.

    Hey @bcm77 , just saw this up for preorder at Oh My Primus...

    It’s very tempting to have a physically relatable superhero figure, I must say.

    As for Brunt, I wish he was taller and had a proper mount for his shoulder cannon. Thankfully he’s such a looker I can overlook the ‘transformation’

    Wicked sick! I actually really like the way the old Prime Wars trilogy Voyagers look with thew Siege boys.

    Fucking great shot. That's what it's all about, right there!

    The more I think about Brunt, the more tempted I am. I haven't got Trypticon, but he does look fantastic in his own right.

    Perhaps I should get him and try to find a cheapish Trypticon?

    It's certainly a change from the chiselled look of most superhero figures :D 

    My question for that company is "Now you've made a fat guy body where's the Nick Frost figures?"

    Surely they can do Donny Battermen from Hot Fizz or Ted from Sean Of The Unliving? :D

    Well, when you're talking ACTION figures, a Nick Frost as Bajie from Into The Badlands would work! :p

    Uh, It's not looking good fellas, just seen a reply on FB to a query of "Any sign of the Battle Masters?" and it is:
    I think I might just have to throw in the towel and cancel 'em with Kapow after all, and at least clear out what I can from Andy's shelves instead of keeping 'em clogged up.

    I think you're quite entitled at this point, Kapow have obviously been dicked about on those items and they are probably holding up a lot of preorders and taking up warehouse.

    I did, indeed, buy a Saltus.

    I'll figure out what to do with him later.

    Let's just say someone's just bought Aimless & Pteraxadon from Amazon US (£13 posted as pretty much RRP was hard to resist, no point waiting until they shoot back up in price as they get rarer post-next-release). If by some miracle they suddenly materialise at Kapow before I can amend my order, well, sod it - more grist for the Custom Battlemaster mill!

    Nabbed me an Ironhide, and, for some reason I can't fully understand, I picked up a new TR Optimus after selling mine ages ago when I got Classics OP.

    I think at some point getting my hands on Octane made me fall in love with the mould and now I've gone an bought one again.

    Ironhide's a wonderful figure, and so large for a Deluxe, too!

    In other news, something actually happened in an IDW2019 issue and I'm almost shocked.
