    As long as i get my thrust, I'm ok with it.

    Still needed a gigantian planet key to finish off my omega lock. Forgot about it until someone posted a bunch of keys at 2.50. Ask for total with shipping, goes up to 10.50 because he's in italy. Quick look on ebay finds a universe heavy load with key for 11.99 shipped. Hmmmm, i wonder which one i purchased. Quick run with a silver paint and the molotow and jobs a good un.

    In Demand Toys posted on FB that they plan to import some of the Amazon exclusive 2-packs to resell in the UK, but they're less certain of the Quint 5-pack possibilities.

    The only reveals I’m excited for are Bumblebee and Soundwave. It’s hard for me to get excited for the reveal of Exhaust, especially when I’ve owned him for about a week :lol

    Plasticos IGA Transformers G1 Bumblebee - red (1985) with Plasticos IGA Cliffjumper - red (1985) and Hasbro Transformers G1 Transformers Bumblebee - red (1984).

    Hasbro red is darker with bigger sticker, but even the red plastic used for IGA Bee and IGA Cliff is not quite the same!

    Is a Siege Red Alert with a broken foot any use to any customisers?

    Of course Kapow now have Greasepit (and Exhaust) in stock on their site the day after I placed an order. Curse my impatience!

    Im hoping Ratchet gets a solo non exclusive figure cause last time was a ballache plus the new Ironhide mold would be perfect and the roof bit as a stretcher or med table would be epic

    So, the verdict on regular RiT cherry red?
    Sh*te all! Didn't even dent it!

    So back to Racing Red I trotted, and, well, my previously-painted blast effects came out still feeling tad tacky, and there'd better be a WFC Tracks now 'cause I believe I may have a couple of Black Light Blasts! :lol

    Whoops! On the plus side despite not even flinching at Cherry Red my scorpion sting got a great rubyfying from ol' redliable, and Ptero 1 went a nice mid-chocolate/muddy brown, perfect for EARTHWORKS!

    This lad though, this lad went WAY better than I'd hoped!

    Because I dunked him with no hope at all, expecting his grey bits to shift at best (the grey you see didn't get dipped because I wanted to keep the grey treads, and having seen the tan of his torso I'm glad I did - lucky, lucky old man that his thighs are screwed and not pinned like everything else in WFC seems to be now!) but, No! Perfectly Scorponok'ed!
    Winner, winner Bear Grylls Dinner!
    (Because, you see, he'd eat a scorpion, yeah? Never mind, I'll get me coat.)

    Got the tracking for lt02 sorted. It arrived in london last night after chinese customs held it up. That should arrive by weeks end then. Yey. Money for seekers hasn't been taken out of account. No idea when they will arrive.

    I sold more stuff on eBay and ordered this guy this afternoon. Very much looking forward to him. Need to keep an eye on Til All Are One Toys for the next round of Spy Patrols now.

    I got an email off them this morning that said mine was 'processed, and shipping this week'.

    I never mentioned that this is the figure that got me back into collecting, did I?

    Pity I can’t find the other missile rack, last time I saw it it was plugged into PotP Battletrap.
