    I've been thinking about this second wave of Cyberverse deluxes - Starscream, Prowl and Soundwave if the rumours are true. If they are doing another build-a-figure it would imply there would be another five characters to go with them... and I dunno, it seems a bit much. The only character I can think of suiting a BAF would be Judgescream, and... yeah, it's not much of a looker.

    After my exclusives run down (thanks to @Seeaich for the three I’d missed! Fresh pair of eyes and all that!), I’ve spent a *lot* on Robits recently....:eek:  And I’ve not touched Scorponok, D’Dealer or even thought about Wave 2 yet - there is simply a lot of product dropping in a very short space of time! Who ever thought we would complain about that?!:oops: 

    Random thought of the evening; any old school Kung Fu Fans in the house? I pretty much grew up on these and TFs so am checking out some Shaw Bros as I type....

    More Unique Toys fun. Just packed these away ready for Earthrise Scorpy for my birthday on Saturday. 41 years old and I'm really looking forward to getting Scorponok and Vintage Collection Slave 1. Two toys I had as a kid but bigger.

    Well, I got the invoice for my Plasma series Ghostbusters figures, so that's one pre-order down with, like... a dozen left to go.

    My... my wallet isn't speaking to me at the moment...

    Welp, after a frustrating turn with the daft-custom-what-shall-not-be-named-as-yet (turns out a nice even coating of superglue does *NOT* in fact help level out rough surfaces the way I was hoping - though I believe I may have a solution!) I set that aside for the day, and thought I'd try something else Hard Mode - Tailspin's shins!

    And, all praise to the Mod Gods, instead it was a therapeutic 10 -15 minutes of quite Zen careful surgical alcohol-soaked kitchen paper scrubbing that got his boots shiny with only a little remedial steel repainting on his right thigh required once the job was done!
    I was dreading possibly losing the toes as well, or more serious paint repairs being incurred but NOPE! Job Done!

    Well, mmmmaaaaaybe one more thing? If I can find some nice missile/rockets of appropriate size to pop under his bonnet/overhead that just might be the Grass Cut for him!

    Also it turns out ID are restocking on Greasepit?

    People have theorised that it'll be one the Decepticon soldiers seen in S3, which I'd be totally down for, I'm still hoping to find a decently priced MMC Kultur somewhere...

    Only thing I can see is SS Leadfoot.

    Anyone know why they mark stuff down as soon as it goes up? Never understand why, maybe an incentive?

    Dealers mobile war crime mode is quite fun and there's plenty of capacity to carry his little friends when they arrive. :D

    I was just hoping for the pre-orders for last Friday's reveals, does make me worry a little about their availability...
