    Bit ropey when zoomed in but you can't tell in hand.

    Last term as I was going through a bit of a depressive episode I had a colleague ask of me "How's life?"

    Completely unbidden I found the words, "Life? Don't talk to me about life!" pour forth. I mean, Marvin's despression was always played for laughs, but I suddenly found myself relating hard.

    Oh, and didn't you say a while back you had something on my pre-TFN shopping list that you were willing to exchange for cash? Can't remember if it was HFTD Lugnut, ROTF Mindwipe or Generations Drift. Or... if I'm mixing you up with someone else.

    Oh wow that is beautiful.

    They've rescheduled the flight for tomorrow. Trouble is, we're meant to meet up with the wife's side of the family and fly to kuala Lumpur together, then on from there on thurs. But we won't make that flight now. So queuing at the desk, see if we can get straight to kl for thurs morning and catch everyone then.

    It's times like this i miss beer.

    That would be Lugnut, might part with Drift at a later date once the flame toys kit comes out

    Ah, I remember now. Did you say you had an unpainted one as well? While your custom work is great I’m after the WW2 style design.

    Is this the Beelzeboss kit with the IDW chest piece and a briefcase for Brainstorm? Or another kit?

    My TFNation Haul! As always it’s was a Blast! And goes by quicker than a Thanos Finger snap. It was good hanging out with @Skywarp SCS @nice sideburns @Ukmets @Rotorstorm @Loosecannon & sorry if I forgot anyone else’s name. I got home & Rotf was on the box(enough to put me asleep)

    My TFN Wristband has found a new lease of life to go along with the 2018 one!

    I can't "Like" this, what a ballache, and how slack to not be sorting out folks ASAP. Hope the rearranging goes smoothly!

    Talk about the thread mood turning on a dime, this was proper :lolol .

    Had the chance for first transformation robot, to car to chopper, and, well, I *respect* the transformation but I don't yet love it. It does seem that with great Springers comes great finickity!
    I suppose it doesn't help that flipping between his modes takes some brave, hefty clicking to lock down (of a force that would have probably broken T30 Springer) - unless I'm doing it wrong - EEK!
    Plus once again carmode requires an exacting alignment of his legs to pull off properly - unless I'm doing it wrong - EEK!

    Chance still favours the prepared mind though!

    Yep, two spare Lionizer's are a totally acceptable toll to pay. And he does look goooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooD!

    Also, a question for fellow Springer-now-havers, does anyone else's rotor section have one click of extension/retraction on the central articulated peg?
    Mine's seems almost like it's supposed to have a locking point when clicked either one way or the other but it doesn't?
    Though the weight of the blades means it pretty much clicks down whenever given a decent spin, particularly with both effect bits on (perhaps the reason a "locking point" was abandoned but the cause of the vestigial clickpoint?).

    Yes, it does seem that a really great Springer issues a challenge that you master his transformation to really appreciate him. It is the price to be paid.
    Aren't the great-looking ones always high maintenance though? :p

    Oh, this Jetfire! Someone who loves Transformers very very much worked very very hard on this. Commander Class is the new sexy.

    Any love for this creepy boi? Very glad to have him back in my collection, and for a fricking fiver!

    I'm thinking he can live amongst my seige figures but under a new name. Any thoughts? I'm thinking Noise Maze or Jetstorm.

    He makes for a terrific Noise Maze now you've suggested it.

    Noizemaze seems highly appropriate, especially if you consider the name of Tarantulas’ weapon against the mind in SOTW

    I love the colours on this version. Anyone have experience with this mould?
