    If they can do it like Forrest Wittaker in Rogue One it should be ok. His character first appeared in the Clone Wars cartoon, but you didn’t need to see that in order for him to work.
    The only time you did need to at least know of other shows was Darth Maul’s appearance in Solo. I still think it’s funny that someone online asked how old Han Solo was, because due to Maul being alive they thought it was set before the Phantom Menace. :lol

    So looks like senator rat face can also hold mp style tapes! But long - ways. Grip isn't as good, but stable enough to pick him up by the tape.

    It does not effect his abilities to lie to the masses. Seen here telling the public he had to fly 300 miles to the autobot base to test his eyesight, being blind as a bat and all...

    EDIT - that scorponok box art looks rather lovely.

    UPS are a disgrace, Hermes are about as good as it gets. And that's not saying much.

    Hey folks. Got that Evil Mirage (or Spectre, as I think someone on the boards coined it?) and was just throwing ideas around about how to differentiate the face from Mirage a bit more.

    What do we think? Moustache or Fembot? Red or Pink eyes (looks pink on the character art on the box itself)?

    Both look good. Purchase two further Mirages; have Spectre, Wraith, and Ghost. :)

    That'd work for me. Just give me the character without a list of required viewing to go with it.

    With Maul's cameo I saw it on YouTube as I'm not watching a whole movie of somebody trying to be a young Harrison Ford and it was news to me because I wasn't even aware he'd been brought back with robot legs in a cartoon until I read the comments section :D 

    @MyTea Boc,
    My nearest corner shop is somewhat lacking in crisp choice but Tesco is only 5 minutes further so I tend to go there. Current crisp favourite is Tyrells cheese and chive, I also used to like their cheese and pickled onion flavour but they only do them in Sainsbury's now and there isn't one of those in town.

    Bless you, Brian but I'm up to my eyeballs in tiny guys, it's different Primes I need! Though, heaven help me, I see @Trentulas is rocking some super-neat Planet Key Prime/faceplates in his Shapeways stall!
    I require a larger rez image to work on my eye & brain strain - STAT!

    There aren't enough TFs sporting facial hair.

    Do it!

    Evening chaps,

    Thank you to all who confirmed they had solid experiences dealing with TFSafari and not incurred customs charges/fees etc...

    I had my first arrival from them today. This little green headmaster:

    Selling these 2 if anyone is interested, looking for a tenner posted each or both for 18. The red target master is a custom dyed aimless.

    Looks like someone is joining more of us on that slippery slope of multiple line collecting. Hehe. What happened to that Masterpiece and OP only focus?

    Me thinks someone is going to be all in on siege/ER. :D 

    Nice acquisitions btw and great shots.

    Am going to look now; partly out of curiosity, but mainly to see what 'bump' variation you've used.

    They said they'll be doing hoxpox in the future at the last Friday thing, right? It doesn't take the place of Jim Lee era for me, but it's close!

    I've just uploaded my latest toy review - the lesser spotted movie (or Universe?) Fracture.



    Give it a watch and good, bad or indifferent, let me know what you think.

    Must have missed that bit, it's probably something I could skip because I'm strictly old school!
