Ah yes. Um. I should... probably go and check, shouldn't I?
Possibly not, the figure is also notorious for *Checks notes*...the stock larger sword handle snapping off the hands' thumbs, as well as suddenly-snapping ankle joints and Mech Alive femurs at the knee! Primus bless @Ottertron for taking mine off my hands, the RELIEF!
Oh, preorders and stuff?
I -finally- paid off a massive CC purchase from this past summer. Good thing to get some collector items out of the way but never the f*ck again am I doing multiple high end preorders with so close pay off dates.
On the radar? I have one fully paid PO for a macross accessory set coming in very late December, and Fanstoys Goose paid for in terms of a deposit. Also have the deposit for a FT Roadking but I think I'm overStunticon-d in the past year. Might just cancel and call it a day.
Bar those items, no other figures PO'd. Think I'll do one more Macross item before the end of the year, but unless it's a jet or high-end jet collectible that transforms I don't think I'll splurge the cash for it.
As somebody said last week or so, the days of me spending over 200 quid on figures are long freaking gone. And with "Halloween" potentially coming into play [still think we'll have a "Halloween"-ness Halloween] it'll probably mess up prices of figures and other things quite a bit.
Still a bloody good figure though, love the sword storage in both modes!
Bit of a Butterface for me but an excellent and ambitious design that fell a little short in execution, and, it turns out, longevity.
Classical Samurai sword stowage is great, as is the Mech Alive Tanto deploying but if only they could have made the sword fit his hands without breaking too!
What a hectic day. Bit of a rollercoaster, but we're finally at the end!
Got a couple of new bits for sale, let me know if anything takes your fancy!

Found 10 bucks on the ground whille on a walk at school
Rotf bludgeon has it's issues, but it's part of that whole 'lets try everything crazy and see what works' phase from hasbro and i love it. I've been lucky with the thumbs so far, but he has had a tread break on me.
That's great news! Fingers crossed for your recovery.
The siege tetrajet mould. I don't know. There's something about it that just doesn't click with me in person. So I'm sat here playing with galaxy force starscream and it occurs to me. Three of this guy done up as the rainmakers would work wonders. He doesn't have the long wings nor the greebling of siege in robot mode, so would be a lot easier to paint, and the thrust and dirge versions should be easy to get a hold of for a good price. Hopefully. I haven't looked. But it's something to ponder on...
Q: Is Siege really all that much fun?
A: Yes. For reals.
Aaaah, you bugger @Recon734 !! I only ever see Madlaw for sale when I'm short on cash. Grrrrrr.
Saw that film a few months ago and very much enjoyed it - Sam Elliot, it's a given really innit - but it was absolutely not quite what I expected, given the title!
He stands next to Banzaitron amidst his people and DOES NOT MOVE!!
Rough assemblage of Clench with a temporary Skyquake noggin!
It reminds me of a dreamwave era poster.
Needs more crotch thrusting for that.
Alright then, a Don Figueroa Dreamwave era poster.
Good enough to forgive the occasional ropey Bigfoot moment, though a less than impressive Bigfoot kinda worked in context. It was the sort of mature storytelling that many modern genre would like to claim to be but actually aren't, I'd love to see more films of it's ilk on a larger budget but that's unlikely. A wee gem to be treasured.
Pleased to report he's suffered no damage other than a spot of dust and a funny green mark on one tread. All the hard plastic is still intact, and he remains a pretty magnificent bugger. Really can't wait for a decently large Thunderwing to put him with.
Spinister and singe
LEGO Wipeout AG Systems - a MOC designed by Marius Herrmann (SteppedOnABrick) - combining my love of Lego and Wipeout.
This is an utterly fantastic build and looks insanely good in hand, plus it's not of insignificant size.
Wipeout and AG SYS forever!
All the best
Found the one I'm thinking of.
A Lego Wipeout model which transforms into Jetfire? Amazing.
All kidding aside, first two Wipeout games were genuine moments. Great memories. Tried the anniversary collection a few years back and it's not the same. Sometimes it's right time, right place.
Also my local Smyths has a shit tonne. If you want I could pick one up for cost plus postage?
