    And of course, that's only safe to say in here. The Defence Force in the MP Threads have been drumming discussion of just those points out of town. Let's just say at £300+ for Prime and £110 for Lady Spider they've lost my custom.

    Which just leaves more for.........

    Just seen that review for Siege Brunt. Army Building Ahoy! I'm going to have to up my order for a few more aren't I?

    A sneak peak at what I'm working on right now, before I focus fully on my war within constructicons. I felt the world needed more lugnut Work In Progress.png

    Courtesy of Mr Jhiaxus on the ol' Twitters, picked this unit up today! I need to replace some of the stickers but am not mad keen on the whole Toyhax set. It's a shame you can't get additional sets of original stickers for anything except Geewun :(

    Cheers, bud, despite not getting the figure meself I tried to channel my affection for the character to do a set I'd want if I was. Can't take full credit for the gatling guns though, they were in the brief from the backroom boys at Toyhax, it turns out me falling down the rabbit hole of the Forgotten Weapons Youtube channel finally paid off when it came to executing some decent-looking heavy machine guns!

    Yeah, it's a bugger alright. The LG version skips a few stickers I still hanker after, like the Cybertronian "MP 01" decals at his flight deck tips, and besides Toyhax the only other option was the Eness set which as well as being (IMO) a bit bland might also be a waterslide set, and also now a bit like rocking horse shit to find listed anywhere. I actually couldn't find an active listing for the Eness now but I just thought I'd mention it FYI in case it took your fancy and you wanted to look out for it.

    For me it’s been the shift to Beast Wars. It holds no appeal for me so it’s been easy to skip. I’ve always been mainly a Generations fan anyway but the full shift to Beast Wars has saved me a lot of cash.

    Finally got me a decent Iron Man figure. I much prefer the bulkier armours of the earlier MCU films.

    Preach it brother!!

    Love it. Never twigged with me that was a killing joke reference!

    Balls. I may ask Andy if I can throw him the extra postage and split my order of micromasters and battle lads. I'm in no rush for the battle boys, but I've a mighty need for the cassettes.

    Nice work Chris! Looks good. But Fuck you for making me reconsider getting chromia!! :p 

    I expect it'll get a fair chance to make something of itself given IDW have announced second runs of the first few issues? I'm not overly keen on it so far (haven't read the latest issue though). But still better compared to Costa's first few books.

    G2 Dinos would be great. Green slag for the win!

    Niiiicccceee.

    Thankfully Rick is not as floppy as some are reporting theirs are.

    Struggling to sleep so will perform nightwotch duties tonight.

    Latest arrivals, if you please:

    B73FD094-0694-4AFA-AB98-264C31A03AD7.jpeg

    Got siege megs to go with prime (thanks again @Avon!) and SS bee to go with my SSBBOP - so now I am going to need to get a SS shatter and the car mould of SS dropkick, aren’t I? Bollocks. I am running out of bloody room!

    Just read the latest instalment of idw tf 2019; Pleased to report the same as what someone else mentioned earlier, the new comic picks up with issue 5. Naturally, won’t say anymore than this other than to say I am keen to get my hands on the next issue, which is something I wouldn’t particularly have said after the first four issues.

    Night time listening:

    EACDD8B0-EFF1-4BF7-BC77-FE41CBD10FD6.jpeg

    Seem to be going through a phase of rediscovering megadeth since listening to this recently for the first time. This, endgame, thirte3n, united abominations and the system has failed are on rotation at the moment. For me, United abominations is the album that gets closest to capturing the giddy heights of countdown or R.I.P.

    Just remembered, I met Marty Freidman once at radio 210 in what must have been the late 1980’s, before he joined the band. Nice bloke, modest from what I recall, given his amazing talent. Every now and then, the rock show would have guests in and one night it was Marty Freidman so I pootled along to meet him. Got a signed copy of his Dragons Kiss album IIRC, not sure what ever happened to it though because I don’t own it any longer? Probably went the way of my amp, foot pedals, etc; leant to mates only to be never seen again! If you’ve not heard his solo stuff, give the track dragon mistress a listen, I love that song from way back!

    Anyway, boring the arse off everyone no doubt with off-topic talk of metal.

    I should probably try sleeping again, work in a few hours and a first year appraisal to look forward to :-( wish me luck!
