    Well, bugger, while I was messaging an eBay seller about the paint defects on their 35th Anniversary Megatron, some savvy shopper swiped it from under my schnoz.

    Anyone looking to sell theirs? XD

    Is this site a scam? It’s glabool.com. It has some stuff from Siege, SS and Cyberverse. 08465168-402B-4E7F-AEF5-C03D8A0BEA49.jpeg

    Quick Google says they're new, only accept card payments, and their contact info is incorrect, so probably steer clear.

    Jaysus willy-shaking christ! That is crazy prices.

    I'd be fine with a Micromaster, but I'd like him in big lad size just like universe countdown and the lads.

    Coincidentally someone was asking about the same site on one of the FB Funko pages, they're not UK registered according to one member and I had a quick look at one of their info pages and it was littered with bad spelling errors. Avoid like the plague...not the current one the older ones....actually this one too.

    The ideal for me would be a blue redeco of Cyberverse deluxe OP with that trailer that appeared for a split second a year or two ago. It’s more frustrating than others because it’s a pretty straightforward way to get more use out of an OP mould but nope, all we ever see is Nemesis Primes all the way down.

    Good morning! I've just uploaded my review of perhaps the worst ever Transformer - Titans Return Triggerhappy!



    If you've watched any of my reviews, I hope you've enjoyed them. This may be the last one for a week or two. I've used up my 'bank' of reviews, so I want to get a couple in the can before I upload the next one.

    I wouldn’t touch them with a barge pole.

    Not on companies house as a limited company given the UK contact/address details.

    No mention of GDPR and what happens to client/customer data.

    From a quick look over the TOS they have some apparent US connection under Section 19 Governing Law which I wouldn’t have too much faith in given grammatical errors and cut/paste with different fonts etc... within the site. Proper hatchet job.

    Such cheap prices clearly are too good to be true and for that I think we all know something isn’t right.

    Wait, what? TR Triggerhappy is one of the most lauded figures to come out of Transformers in the last few years. I know opinions differ from person to person, but I think this is the first time I've ever seen someone have this feeling towards this figure. And worst ever is a pretty bold statement when there are figures that literally cannot be transformed because they explode into gold shards if you even look at them funny... :lol

    I have the opposite problem, that peg on my Aragon is really loose and his torso and legs detach really easily :(

    :)  Just a little joke... I'm firmly with the crowd on this one, he is one of the best figures made (so far).

    From personal experience the specific type of Weaponizer is no guarantee of good QC tolerance. It's a total Lottery affair.
    My Cog had great limb pegs but needed nail polish in the torso peg port, of my four Sixguns there was wild variation from "drop off when so much as looking at 'em" to a fantastically well gripping set of pins that now belong my remaining Metroplex minion still Sixshot, the next best pegging legs are on Sixbore, Sixiron's legs are okay (I believe they were originally the first Sixgun's that needed a bit of a lick of nail polish in the barrel ports), mainly down to the best hip pegs, and the loosest legs ended up on Hexbomb but the dyeing process tightened 'em up good & proper meaning they're technically the best pegging overall now but as they are no longer the stock colour they're disqualified from taking the top spot of "tightest Sixgun Legs". Also it was quite the musical chairs finding out which Sixgun missile/gun barrels were the best tolerance and didn't spin like tops in weapon mode!
    I love 'em but it seems like it doesn't take much in material variance to throw off the tolerances of 'em.
    From what I've handled it seems only Brunt and his derivative Zetar haven't had any major loose bits in any of my copies.
