    If anyone doesn't want those Ark-looking diorama bits of card from their Siege Netflix figures, let me know! I'm using them to adorn the TF shelves in my Detolf.

    That hat is a joke. I've managed to get mine holding on with friction quite snugly, but as I said in my initial rant/appraisal.. that was absolutely a 'fuck it, we're done' moment, possibly about time the money ran out? The torso does connect in two places though - there's the main bit where you slide it in and then the big wheel plugs into Overload's canopy. What do Overload's legs do though? They just sit there, yeah? Fiddly fucker. But individually some sublime lunacy going on. I have no regrets!

    Happy Monday everyone!
    I've seen The Conjuring and just checked trailer for Sinister - yep seen it too but still gave me the chills! LOL! :eek: 

    My missus is the same, she will not watch any scary movies with me - I remember watching horrors and the like from an early age - we used to have a dodgy pirate video man who used to drive around hiring out movies from the back of his little van! :rolleyes:  Dodgy VHS copies? More than likely! Registered as business? I shouldn't think so! LOL!
    I swear we once hired what I seem to remember being a kind of horror version of E.T.? Always had it in my head as E.T.T. with a tag line of 'what's six feet tall and eats people?' but this was the early Eighties and my memory is a little fuzzy! :p :confused: 
    I wouldn't mind giving The Orville a go actually but can't seem to find it without buying it? We have Amazon Video and Netflix - what platform is it on? :confused:

    Todays deliveries. Thanks to Indemand and Baba. Only took two weeks for Baba's free shipping so not really bad at all.

    Can't wait to get Devy together. FT Blurr and Warpath should be here tomorrow too.

    Hey guys! Even though I don’t post in here much, It’s always a relief finding such a relaxed safe haven here, compared to the general toxic mayhem of some of the other threads.

    Have a preorder for Sky Lynx with Kapow but he’s with the new Doubledealer, struggling mightily with wanting him in hand now after seeing some of the amazing photos of him in here! Hopefully the rest of Wave 2 is out soon, as I’m getting new toy withdrawal symptoms here.

    Weird question, does anyone know any for sale sites where they don’t charge much? I’ve got an old retired Lego Parisian Restaurant modular building kit that I’ve had in my attic for ages, it’s still sealed & in perfect condition.

    I see they’re selling for £240 on eBay but ideally I’d like to sell mine cheaper & pass the savings on to the buyer, I’d be looking to get £200 for him but no idea where to start?

    I'll PM you with a link when I'm next on my pc with the bookmarks. It's one of 'those' platforms I watched it on. The ones where a pop up blocker is a must. ;)

    Aye, I'm hanging fire on Rung & Slitherfang to pad out the rest of the order with the other tiny guys because the need isn't as mighty to have them NAOW but I do want 'em all (and I'm curious if Groundhog might be torso-swappable with Roadhandler for a cheeky Tailspin conversion, so if it works I might even want more).

    If going to The Range in Barnsley wear a mask, went there the other day after our social distance meet up and there was some cretin in there coughing and paying no attention to social distancing. Pissed me right off as I’d taken my mask off for a minute too, if I come down with the virus I know where I got it from

    It looks good. I like the fact it's about deluxe size. I take it you're replacing him withe Earthrise one?
