    Glad to hear it I hadn't properly messed with it in years are you still interested in Snarl and Swoop?


    I have the overwhelming urge to pick up a pretender Starscream at TFN

    Ahhh, you messaged me on IG about it! I fiddled around with mine and, yeah, no issues with it, so may be a QC issue OR need some lubrication.

    He's also going to have a bunch of his awesome covers as prints and sketchbooks too - there's a killer Jazz cover from Optimus Prime and his Wreckers Vs. Squadron X piece. He's done me a Ratbat commission too :D 

    Welcome to enablement town @Kohakuriko !!

    Let me look at my TFN budget tomorrow with Mrs. Ottertron and see if I can squeeze these into it - I planned on buying them anyway so if I can do it now, via you, it helps us both out.

    So I posted on the third party board and someone had the same problem. The piece the head is on has been installed back to front. So going to get a screwdriver tomorrow that will fit and switch it round.

    Love the figure though. So imposing.

    Some blurry new Studio Series reveals. Hard to get excited about another Bumblebee, but Dotm Soundwave looks great. The Studio Series line is probably quite rare by the fact that it's very Decepticon heavy, and the majority of them are great.

    I will definitely be passing on the Motorbike trio, however. They could be the most accurate, articulated, high quality figures ever, but that wouldn't change the fact that those designs are Lovecraftian nightmare fuel at the source - and that's coming from someone that likes the Movieverse Aesthetic.

    Oh, MAI! If the UK isn't an irradiated apocalyptic Mad Max-hole by 2020, I might just have to snag and repurpose an SS Sounders!

    the only drawback is that Winston Wolfe might come knocking on your door wanting your help to clean some Meerkat blood off his car upholstery ;)

    That reminds me: don't leave unopened cans of Pepsi max on the passenger seat in hot weather. Boom.

    I don't know where you've been, but I'm glad to see your pics appearing again. :) 

    Ss soundwave is very much a yes, unless they do something to ruin it like Prime's trailer. Now to brave the news threads to see those other reveals.

    If their robot modes weren't quite so "Lovecraftian Monstrosities" the bike gals would be pretty neat, it's cool that they'll actually scale with the cars but OOF!

    Also the tweet with the clear official Images is HERE if you want to stay in the boat?

    Cheers, i made a swim safely. Hot rod looks good and unexpected but pass since i passed wwii bee. The bike trio look great in bike mode, and I'm really happy they have three unique moulds. But definitely looked better on screen. They'll be a pass (don't look like they combine. Good.) Unless i see them going cheap. 07 bee, fantastic that they've done him in ss scale, but the toy has a lot more black than the render and he's quite a bit mistransf0rmed. The original 07 bee is safe on my shelf. But if they do a d0tm retool, then I'd be looking. And siundwave, i hope he's more silver than that toy on show. I want him like jazz. If not, I'll do it myself but he is bought on sight. That headsculpt. Wow. Laserbeak is smaller than i was expecting but he looks great. Doesn't look posable, but not a big deal.


    And ruined Prime's trailer is too strong. They didn't ruin it, they made some cost cutting choices that severely reduced my excitement for it.

    I hope that Hasbro repeatedly hints that the bike trio do combine, only for it to turn out not to be true when they are released - just to be historically accurate...

    I watched a review out of curiosity and, to me, it looked like the core Voyager figure was cheaped out on to boot. The silver non-clear chest windows did not impress. Maybe they should've gambled a stamp on him being the first Commander Class Studio Series figure and really done him justice?

    Just binged the new season of She-Ra and got hit in the nostalgias thanks to an appearance by Tung Lasher. Not thought about him in forever, but the moment I saw him, all my memories of the toy came flooding back, right down to remembering where the colour had worn off his tongue. Funny how the ol' brain works.
