That one came from Kapow [alongside the other fellas in the pics]
Brunt from Smyths, Impactor from Kapow.
Watching Omegalock and Kapow talking minor smack at each other on Facebook is weird.
To make matters worse, his other half was sitting on my paper shredder...
You can see why KT may be a little annoyed if they’ve been working on this agreement for a while (whilst also expressing to TO that it was likely to happen) but it’s you pick your choice and take your chance, TO may get theirs quicker, kapow may get theirs quicker, TO may get theirs cheaper and vice versa. Realistically there is a chance TO may not get theirs at all - especially having to rely on third parties and the associated risks you get by essentially being a reseller. I’m sure both will be fine, but there is obviously things that have happened that we may not be privy to
Heyup! I finnaly got my TR Targetmasters together with their Siege brethren!
And actually, finishing off the Targetmasters with their Targetmasters is very very satisfying. Yes.
Righty, I've been spectacularly lazy and not done anything on the calendar yet, but the moment I drag my carcass to The Works and buy a calendar to rip eer... 'reference' I'll go all in I reckon. But yeah, no preorders yet, because I have nothing... yet. And actually the way things are going I reckon this'll be the first year I may not have a pic in myself... which means a new slot may very well open up! We'll see.
As to where I've been (as in not online), well. John Wick 3 came out on BD on Monday... so I bought it and first thing I did was rewatch John Wick. Then John Wick 2 on Tuesday. It would have been the third today, except tonight was the first day of the Archery course I've gone and enrolled for. Gonna add bows and arrows to my weapon list, oh yes.
Unfortunately I did shoot kinda poop today. Very strange shooting with finger guards and stuff. We'll see how I do next week. Great fun though, even though the beginners bows (12lbs IIRC) are rediculously light. I mean, there may as well not have been any resistance at all.
Tried using up the orange left from my rodimus custom to make sunstorm, but it seems citadel paints have a very short lifespan. Poor sunstorm looks like he has leprosy. So guess that's some orange getting added to the paint order. Good job i tried that before i ordered.
Unless i make him gold....
Bit more work on the Combaticons...
Hasbro Transformers G1 Headmaster Fangry with Brisko (1988).
I was very late to the 1988 Headmasters scene, but the Decepticon gang are proving far harder to find than the Autobots, especially in this condition. Fangry's colours are simply incredible.
All the best
Fings crossed for a Monsterbot-buck-based retool in WFC Chapter 2!
If they do do it I wonder if they'll use the monster arms for the legs over the shoulders look due to the nature of the transformation.
When you're still unemployed and this is the year of MP 43, MP44, and Omega Supreme.
Ok if anyone is getting the Wolverine/Jean Grey/Cyclops 3 pack but doesnt want the Wolverine then please let me know, I really want a cartoon accurate Wolverine but dont want the other 2 figures
Guys. I knew that Generations Drift would be a cool toy, but no-one told me it would be this cool. Just transformed it back into car mode, and even that was fun and intuitive.
Come on now.
Is there any chance it'll still be a Headmaster? Is the upcoming Apeface a Headmaster?
All the best
ACK! Good luck hunting, my fine fellow!
I'm sorry. I suck.
'Why I loved Prime Wars (inc.T:30): part 4'
So, I've said it a few times, but one of the things that got me back into collecting TF's was the IDW comics, particularly MTMTE. Inevitably, I really loved every nod the toys gave in that direction, whether it's something as small as Rewind and Chromedome's headsculpts, or incredibly faithful renditions like Skids, Springer and Magnus (or even just getting Nautica at all). My CHUG shelf has always been my IDW shelf, so it really has made collecting the CHUG stuff that more pleasurable for me.
When the IDW continuity wound down around the same time that the new WfC toys were being released, I felt a little sad. Looking at that very non-IDW Magnus it really did seem like the days of the IDW homage were behind. How nice then to see we're getting Rung! I hope we'll get a few more nods as the years roll on.
With regards to Nautica, I think the way that the new comic is sticking to the original Milne design strongly implies there's no new toy on the horizon, which basically gives 3P companies free reign to fill that gap in the market. But then they could have done that for years and they haven't. I want my Nautica! Come on MMC!
Oh, and sorry for stealing your schtick Barry with the Seeker writeups I've done so far. I mean, I say sorry but I'm going to carry on with the others so...
Fingers crossed you find something soon buddy!
Here here. I'm calling a red redeco of rung into a cheeky Kaon at some point.
Fuck me folks... Jet fire is a beast.
It is! But I doubt Fangry's got enough clout to get a full figure release somehow. The Apeface Titan Master had people whining their faces off about "needing" a full-size version but there was no real outcry when it came to Fangry. But then, I've been proved wrong before.
