    That looks “filthy” good. Genuinely looks like he’s jumped through some flames and been knocked about by explosions now. I didn’t realise how plain the white makes him look...

    How’s the alternate modes?

    Haha! It's been a while since I did proper galleries of toys, but these Earthrise figures are so much fun to mess with. It's like Small Soldiers up in here....;)

    Put in a redelivery request for my prime. No idea if it will work. Guess we'll find out friday, rather than go trudging a few miles in the mild hope that's where it is.


    I would say a gothic stylised Gotham would work when in a bigger universe. Not the over the top one of the cloony one, but btas and burton ones would. Why shouldn't a city have it's unique identity? It would have to be some distance from the others, not the other side of the same lake, but it could be believable.

    And here are two of the rainmakers! Woo!

    May add some red to Nova's wings.

    Faffy to get to but solid once you get 'em all clipped together, I dig 'em - a huge improvement on G1 IMO, he's my new favourite dirty basterd!

    I have him already he’s still one of my favourite figures to pick up and mess with, what did you use to add the black?

    I really want to panel line my ER Starscream.

    I had the G1 toy briefly as a kid, dad bought it for me complete in a badly banged up box from a car boot for about £25 I think. It was back in the days of Armada so I barely remember.

    I unfortunately sold him on not realising what he’s actually worth these days.

    GSI Creos Mr. Hobby Aqueous Hobby Color Smoke Grey, plus a wee bit of extra dabs of black in some of the vents and recesses.
    Bollocks, contemplating the fact I may have to hand in my Yorkshire Card for not twigging to "Mucky Apeth"!

    Contra (Known as Gryzor on micro ports and Probotector for every european console entries for years) was released by Konami in japanese arcades 33 years ago to the day.
    I'm not sure if it's possible to find a game - or really any media- that encapsule the 80's as much as a mishmash of Sly, Arnold, Dolph,Canon films really, sandinista revolution, Ronald Reagan, and ALIENS.
    I don't even want to think about what would be nowadays equivalent... *shivers*

    Anyway, the series that spawned a lot of really great games (and some pretty mediocres) is 33 today and we're just gonna celebrate that by... Listening again the Megadrive first level music because if I don't do it who will ?

    Dammit..... I am starting to wonder if I can pick up a few Alternators online now.....

    I think that I am just over it all now. So tired of the sexualisation of the fembots as its become an easy route. Part of the issue is that its Windblade, too. That fan vote character, developed by the community, lauded by Hasbro as proof that they were opening up TFs to be more 'female-friendly'. A character who, up until now, has generally been treated quite well, and included in Cyberverse and just been a TF who happened to be female. Its just disappointing and feels like a real step backwards, and from an official license too. I wont judge people who want to buy it, or like it, thats fine. But companies who try to make a statement about values and pushing the accessibility deserve the praise, and when they turn around and take a step back, they deserve the criticism.

    Good morning to all!

    A bit breezy out there today but may have to make the long and Pokemon Go filled journey t'shops with my lad again?
    Tried setting up data tethering from my mobile to his one (no sim just handset) so we could both play Pokemon Go but did it via bluetooth so wasn't very successful? :( 
    Need to rethink that one.

    Lovely pics Liam! I wonder if anyone with ER Screamer will consider cutting his hip skirt into three parts as each part appears to be connected separately? o_O
