    I bunged the first part of my Gunpla build chronicling up on my Patreon. I've kept it short, as I figure it's better to be able to provide smaller, more frequent updates. Please give it a read and share it about!

    Picked up some essentials for the upcoming weekend: beers/rum/JD/coca cola/crisps/chocolate/monster - all very healthy!

    List wise, I don’t really have anything on the agenda...probably just wander and pick up anything that catches my eye.

    Looking forward to meeting up with everyone who helped make last year so enjoyable and meeting new peeps!

    I’ll be wearing a variety of t-shirts in order to combat any funkiness that may occur but my face will largely stay the same:

    Looking forward to seeing everyone, to those not attending, I hope you enjoy TFN from afar!

    Yep, it is, although it belongs to someone else. It's fine, very tight joints. I saw your note about the leg on yours - very bad!

    I just realised earlier, i have my custom classics warp and cracker still. Think orange on one for sun storm and gunmetal the other to be one of those generics from the toon pilot.

    Exactly!
    When it comes to realistic model making, well, that's getting a bit too real!!!
    That it's a mass-produced model to boot, mindboggling!

    Picked up an on sale Ultimate Riders Wolverine whilst browsing Comics & Cocktails the other day and think the eyepatch head is way better than the snarling sculpt so it's staying on for the foreseeable future although I'm looking at a couple of custom options as well.

    Bullseye arrived a couple of days ago but didn't do much with it straight away as I was searching for Oreo and by the time he was safely back in HQ I wasn't in the right mood. Very nice figure overall although the extra hand with the effect that's supposed to look as if he's throwing some knives looks like a big, floppy claw when it's on the figure so I'll display it without that.

    I really like both headsculpts and it's one of the newer ML bodies with the butterfly joints at the shoulders which I really like as it increases the options for various poses.

    The wad of cash he's holding was bought off ebay in a set of 10. I'm going to see if I can get some playing cards for him next.

    Now I have Kingpin & Bullseye I'm itching for a red costume Daredevil but will either wait for a new Hasbro one on a better body as the existing ones are a bit clunky or see whether Medicom do a MAFEX version.

    I've had Black Cat for a little while now and am pleased to finally get her in a decent pose as the heels make standing the figure without using some sort of stand a bit awkward.

    "SORIGHT?" "SORIIIGHT!" was the first thing to pop in my head. That Uniskull just tickles me for some reason.

    Uh, Can I maybe just buy that head?

    Loving the smashed eyes look, I guess that'd be an alternate faceplate maybe?

    Can post you one if you'd like?

    Also, can I nab that Megs and Prime shot? I reckon I could use that to recreate the cover it's from. Cheers!

    Thanks!

    And also Thanks!
