    Well, there's this:

    So as I mentioned in passing earlier (CALM! BLUE! OCEAN!) I suspect these notices may be more preparatory not annunciatory.

    That’s cheating. I know you dealers do all your purchasing when everything’s done on the Sunday ;) 

    Cheers dude! Hopefully can find the time for it just after TFN.

    All the best

    No TFN for me again, slightly jealous, but the money that would have gone on hotel and admission can go towards TFs instead. Though I would have liked to see if I could (as unlikely as it is), if I could have found a TR or Legends Misfire for less than the fifty odd quid I've seen them going for on ebay/amazon etc...

    However, I did receive Sixgun, the Rescue and Off-Road Patrols today from Games and Cards today. I do like the Micromasters, with fond memories of them from my childhood. Stakeout has a head swivel!! and really loose hip ball joints. All I'm missing now are Laserbeak/Ravage, Sports Car Patrol and ten pack. Sixgun is also a fantastic figure, all I need now is a Slammer and Metroplex has got all of his crew!

    So instead of packing at 7PM like a sensible person I decided I could finish Hyperdrive Thunderclash

    Only think I didn’t manage to paint was the shoulders, no time to do them now as I need to get my shit together for picking @nemisispringer from the train station at 9!

    So THAT'S why a lot of people these days identify as an attack copter.

    Oh nice. A Voyager prime rifle looks suitably tempting. Among others.

    Wouldn't that be a 1:1 scale with human adult head?

    Great work! That totally works for him.

    Hope everyone has fun at tfn!

    Coming back home after two weeks vacation under the sun sucks.
    So I went shopping.

    [​IMG]


    Always a smile when I see a TF in a french store so I could I resist ? Honestly did look for Shockwave or Hound but nah, nowhere to be seen, just massive seas of Magnus, Sideswipe and Ironhide. And this guy. One lonely Prowl. So hey, he'll do.
    + the very first time I drop one cent into something movie related so yeah, big day for surprises.

    Hope I'll enjoy both and hope y'all fine guys !

    Des bisous.

    Yo dudes, hope to see some of you this weekend, I’ll be shilling my wares in the forge, table 21 ;-)

    Let’s hope we can pass the weekend without drama, people being accused of misogyny, or people demanding everyone carries a can of lynx (I’d rather smell BO than lynx Africa!)

    Pffft. Who needs to pack? Your skill was needed elsewhere! He looks great dude.

    Naturally!or what's the point?

    Enjoy TFN you hoodlums! May your paths be filled with cheap & plentiful bargains and the booze chilled and free flowing.

    And watch out for squid attacks.

    I havent had them opportunity to check out the Brave STD Build Tiger, how is it combined?

    I only ever got one or two STDs in my day, easy to do when you're being Brave. Nowadays I like to go for virgin condition, or at least keep it sealed so I'm covered. #shitjokereach #apologiesforcasualmysogyny

    Am I finally posting something again? Yes. Did I catch up to this thread? Absolutely not. But I’ve decided that might as well put a “goal” to where I have to catch up which is only around 200 pages...

    Anyways, passing by to say Hi to all of you wonderful people and I hope those going to TFN (that’s this weekend right?) enjoy it, cheers all.

    For all those going to TFN, have an absolute blast. I'll have to try and arrange our holiday to fall either side of it next year. He says, having said this for how long now? Hoping the Wave 3 Gods have smiled sweet fortune upon the dealer room.

    For those not going to TFN, I've just spied restocks of Siege Jetfire at TFS Express. And did I? Of course I did.
