    My Skywarp still hasn't shipped but have ordered Thundercracker on amazon incase I don't pick him up this weekend. He is just under £20.

    So I stopped fiddle-fucking about with other stuff and finally opened Redwing.

    He's not bad.

    Still umming and ahhhing over whether that head goes on 'Screamer or not. The smirk looks a bit more like it on the dead/cream/Manson face.

    Hasbro UK 1988 Transformers Headmasters “Buy 2 Get 1 Free” (as long as they’re £15 or over) offer - choose from Chromedome, Hardhead, Mindwipe and Skullcruncher!

    But not Highbrow, who’s pictured.

    Maybe because Attack Helicopters were big in the UK of the '80's?


    And even a blue one in particular!

    Just some of the paperwork I had in storage that I finally have a chance to go through and photograph, all part of the clearout. If I get a chance, I’ll do a write up summary of all of them under a common theme just to have them in one place and photographed/scanned in better quality :) 

    All the best

    Having grown up with G1 and having been knocking around the fandom for long enough, I can safely say I’ve not seen a lot of it, so I’d be interested!

    Unrelated note;

    @incapable hulk Still OK to buy those Comic Books form you at the weekend?

    So I'm currently thinking "can I go all of TFN without buying anything for myself?"

    Swing by my stall Sunday and ask how I've done.

    The time and tide of collecting, I'm at the high tide of payday burning a hole in my pocket and thus far too easily tempted!
    I've held off on Matrix Workshop stuff as the white handles look a bit unfinished to me BUT that goddamn Sideswipe over the shoulder rocket holder looks damned GOOD and the unpainted bits look pretty close to his stock off white plastic, bundle in Jetfire bunny ears, and the Magnus filler kit as a test purchase, purely for the Hound rocket so, uh, anybody need Magnus fillers? Bueller?

    I'd actually be interested in the fillers, it's one of the things I was looking at.
