    Yeeeeeeah, *Looks at still-pending Firestormers Amazon UK Pre-Order* that's a pass from me.

    FYI Greasepit back In-Stock at In Demand. Snagged myself one to Autobot-ise, and a discount Spinister for a Rotorstorm fist-swap and likely a custom attempt at either a "Blackout" or a "Tomahawk", as I doubt dark purple fisted Spinister will be that much of a sales draw! :p

    I have a one year old who currently refuses to sleep earlier that 11pm if you want to babysit to fight the boredom? I'll pay you in all the kisses you want.


    Ooooh the Titanium bots. Such a nice idea, but such underwhelming execution. To be fair, the Magnus and Rodimus weren't awful, just not quite there. The scourge wasn't all bad either. But fuck that Soundwave. And Megatron.

    Looking forward to see which was the copter bot goes dude.

    I'll have to sign up for Amazon Prime to watch it but don't mind doing so for a series with Pegg & Frost!

    Went out a little earlier to do a bit of shopping and also popped to the local community bank to see how much had built up over the past few months and I now have £60 towards a Sentinel :) 

    Shopping whilst wearing a mask is a foggy experience because my specs keep steaming up every few seconds which adds to my usual supermarket angst but possibly assists the effectiveness of my death stare if someone stands too close so it's swings and roundabouts :D 

    Idea for a Star Wars crossover,
    Child/Yoda ( It can be like Hot Rod into Rodimus! :D )

    Sold to the man with the unreasonable confidence in my childcare abilities. Actually, I do believe the children are our future. So there!

    Rodimus and Magnus were for me both coasting on the all in one alt mode, which hadn't been done for either of their G1 representations before. Remove that from them and they're both a big rubbish. Rodimus was the closest I ever came to liking one of the toys.
    I loved they attempted War Within designs, but they were just gash.

    The Fallen always looked good but I've never actually had one in hand to fiddle with. Happy with the Make Toys one now.

    I had Magnus & Megatron. Magnus was great in robot mode on shelf, but more like a statue than a toy. Megatron was horrible. I did quite like the look of the Jetfire, but never saw one in person. Of course, compared to modern toys they're all crap

    Anyone know where I might be able to get hold of Siege Red Alert? I missed out on the In Demand sale where he was only £12, and now fancy having one.

    Hello! Sorry to sort of jump in...
    I’ve been lurking for a while, and finally decided I should just sign up, given I most definitely seem to be hitting the point where I can’t deny I’m collecting these lovely chunks of plastic...
    These last few lines of Transformers are like catnip to my nostalgia. All the toys I wished I could have when I was a kid, redone with neat articulation and better looks. Brilliant.
    I got in with the tail end of Titans Return when I found a reduced Sixshot and Soundwave, then Trypticon got reduced, and I thought ‘Why not? It’s only the one big silly toy.’
    Then along came WFC with Brunt (got to get that for Tryp), and Skytread and Crosshairs. And then Omega Supreme.
    And now these last couple of weeks have had me splurging like nothing before with Earthrise Prime, Skylynx and Skorponok... followed by catching up on some Siege characters I missed out on coming back in stock, rapidly followed by the two two packs on US amazon for preorder, and now today In Demand have Skywarp and Thundercracker back in stock - I’ve been watching you all getting them and kicking myself for not preordering (I guess it also means I need Starscream too...)
    Guess I probably need a Detolf or three now.
    So. Yes. Hello!

    Nottingham robot company found one in their stock so they had one earlier in the week.

    My seekers have turned up. Yey! Think I'll stop buying for a while now.
    Lol, famous last words.

    I'm sticking with .com. Co.uk has been too unreliable in the past.

    Welcome friend! Sorry to hear you've been afflicted, if you're looking help this is not the place. If you're looking for enablement, sounds like you're already in the midst of it.

    I never got a detolf or display cabinet cos of space, but I do need to find a solution. My toys are all dusty and I'm not sure how to clean them without scratching the paint (on the one's I've painted) My lego city is worse though. That stuff is an absolute dust magnet

    Doubledealer and Lio Convoy samurai thing from Iron Factory have arrived! Many thanks @Red leader, you know why.

    I really should have gone to bed ages ago but needed a hands on impression of big DD first.
