    Tried poly cement old chap, or is that what you mean by fishy glue? Personally find the poly works great for styrene and is a damned sight cheaper than epoxy!

    Well that’s Cyberverse season 1 completed. It’s bloody good actually, really enjoyed and probably more than any transformers series since Beast Machines. The final few episodes of the season were spot on and has me looking forward to season 2.

    On a not so good note I opened siege Jetfire last night, and there seems no way that battle mask is going to stay on....

    Classics soundwave is now complete. Much better clean.

    Seems to be a somewhat common issue, how would you feel about disassembling his head to get the spring out and work it a bit to lessen it's sproing? I only suggest that first as I've read some have tried nail polish/other additional friction fixes that have then caused an issue with the stowage port in the chest armour. If that's your preferred method (and I wouldn't blame you, seeing as I won't be splitting his head again if I can help it) then you might have to remove a wee bit of material from there too to accommodate any peg thickening and maintain proper stowage.

    I had the opposite problem, the battle mask was quite hard to remove. I fixed it by putting mask and chest armor in an unlabelled box, at night, with no recollection of which house it was.

    This stuff. Utterly hopeless. I'm only making a small bit of landscape anyway so I'll have enough epoxy to get pieces stuck on. Question is do I stick them on before taking the blowtorch to it to help smooth down joins? I have no idea how it might react.

    Pre-ordered Marvel Legends Stan Lee with Star Action Figures who's out in March. Looking forward to swapping the headsculpt onto various figures :) 

    I also have a package on the way from my pal in the States who I sent the cash to get me the ML vintage wave 1 brown costume Wolverine and Vision from wave 2 and he's also put the left arm for Sasquatch in as he got it with Deathlok and wasn't going for any of the other figures in the wave so I am now literally an arm and a leg away from completing the big hairy fella.

    Current shelves,

    As @Seeaich says, giving the spring a workout is probably your best best bet, followed by shaving some plastic down from the peg.

    The head is a bloody nightmare to disassemble though. The screw cap is your first hurdle, then separating the head halves - on mine these required ten minutes of gentle persuasion to part.

    I'd be interested in the Micromasters and Kup depending on prices dude?

    Also, does anyone want Siege Springer for £21 posted? Complete and comes with two free Botbots.

    I don't think there is a straight answer yet. They're not out anywhere yet. I think it's safe to say they'll be out before Christmas, but it's a flip of a coin whether they appear in actual shops.

    Kup may be sold, but the micromasters are not yet claimed. Does your enquiry include groundshaker? If so, just so you know there's a bit of damage to it and it's not complete.

    I don't suppose I could interest any of you good folk in this fine specimen.

    Revoltech Hot Rodimus, boxed and complete. I've only ever had the figure itself on display as the stand is still packaged and stuck to the back of the internal tray.

    In fantastic nick, was looking for £20 posted:

    Bless you Sir, I am indeed. Slow (and very boring)going but I'm on the path there.

    Stuff. IMG_20191013_170041.jpg
    Still can't stand Siege Prowl, but I like Bluestreak and this Guy. Weird, but there it is. Takes all sorts.

    IMG_20191013_165958.jpg

    Yeah it's just a rip on Boba Fett - the most overestimated character in Modern Popular Culture - and a cynical one at that........but already I love it. It takes me back to the days when a cool Toy was a good enough thing on its own merits to justify a purchase and the real fun was inventing your own head-stories for what that You was and could do. So I gave one of them a Light saber. Because why not? Now it's even cooler.

    Now watch the series ruin it by being fucking dreadful..............

    Good late afternoon/early evening all!

    The weekend is nearly done with so I hope all has been well.

    Ooh he looks nice and clean! If those cheeky BMB/BPF/KLF KO folk get their hands on those hot CAD's then this is what he'll look like. Kinda!;) 
    Those MP cassette-bots look good with Siege Soundwave!:D

    I don't know what the DNA DK-11 kit wants me to do and I never want to look at it again.
