Bloody hell, @stevej is back.
I once built a Preowned Lego UCS star destroyer with missing bits where it was all mixed up to start with! Luckily lived in a house by myself at the time and the living room became a building area for 3 weeks!
Cheers KT, who makes it because I need a decent rack.
Beast Wars Megatron riding his dragon form that also transforms into his Noble Beast Machines form that turns into a gun for the robot when Beast Wars Megatron becomes the head of G2 Megatron who is using a repaint of Blitzwing's body. We need more silliness like this.
I go through phases in this thread. Sometimes I lurk, sometimes I post, sometimes life gets in the way... So it goes.
New Takara Tomy Mall Transformers Exclusives: Earthrise Skywarp & Thundercracker, Doublecrosser And Siege Ratchet - Transformers News - TFW2005
Really hope that makes Ratchet a little easier to get in the long run for those who need him. I wasn't in a position to ask for two when someone was already doing me a massive favour but I'd like another for the alt mode!
I feel your pain... But sure it'll be worth it.
I built the UCS Imperial Shuttle last year. No numbered bags and 90% of the pieces are white. So much white!
I'll have the opposite problem soon... Before we move I have a Death Star and UCS Falcon, Shuttle and Slave1 to take apart and box to be transported safely. The Death Star will be the real bind as it's my son's and he wants to sell it so I need to go through the instructions backwards to make sure it's complete. Now that's a weekend (minimum) I'll never get back. Wouldn't be so bad if I thought the lad would help me!
Ahhhh it wasn't just me! I got the email confirmations through and my PayPal debited, so I guessed it was just the website being pants.
More Siege Ratchets being available I can live with, though for mould variety I'd prefer an Earthrise one alongside my Siege Ironhide.
IDW1 re-read just got to Chaos Theory. Such a step-up in quality, and Milne is making me want to track down that massive 3P stealth bomber Megatron!
Yeah, I’d be really interested to see what a reimagined ‘low baggage’ transformers for the 2020s looks like.
Is that a new Tracks in that picture??? If that's a Kingdom Tracks then I'm having that
thought I'd google some of those rare and ultra rare micro machines holy shit people are already asking for $200 for a pack with a gold car. I thought Hotwheels Super TH's were bad.
Yup, but it's all just a rumour at the moment!
Precisely why I bought one last night in Tesco, the only question is to hang on to it for ages since it's series 1, or try to sell it during the excitement lol
It's just existing art he got from somewhere to illustrate the rumours.
*Knocks on front door*
"Hello, sir, have you considered letting the power of Modelling Styrene into your life?"
"Stronger than card but not stronger than plastic, a segment of appropriately-shaped and sized tube or beam, and job's a good 'un!"
I did get my hopes up it would be Earth Mode Ratchet, and even though he may be due relatively soon, I reckon Siege could be a necessary buy for anyone who wants to do the full G1 sled for Ironhide and/or possibly Ratchet himself though there's a chance he might get a waldo arm launcher if he gets extra gear.
I think that's just the Earth Wars in-game character model as a placeholder image unfortunately to stand in due to him being rumoured for Wave 1 of Kingdom.
Just in case you prefer Amazon or are struggling with availability...
Smyths ER preorders with free home delivery on some but not all orders
Well my Gnaw and 3rd party weapons for Insecticons arrived from China safe and sound.
Now I've tested Chinese eBay seller I'll up the ante and order something over £10.
Still liking the look of snapdragon, I get the jaw complaints but I'm pretty sure I can angle it a way that I'll like it.
They definitely sacrificed the beast mode for the jets on the horrorcons which is a shame as I feel it should be the other way round but that being said they made horrorcons, we are well spoiled at this point. I kind of think if you want mp/3p quality then go with that you get what you pay for, personally I know I'll be happy with him.
Kind of wish they had pulled off the dragon wings the unique toy legend managed but let's face it that was too much to ask and even the KFC 3p didn't pull that off.
I think this might be the first time I have taken a pic of Astrotrain in his robot mode. He's been hanging round the sidelines of toys I may or may not give a shit about and often finds himself put back into his box (much like Earthrise Prime, BUT THAT'S FOR ENTIRELY DIFFERENT REASONS). Indeed, his main purpose to me - and it ain't exactly a bad thing - has been forming a bridging part between various Earthrise setups utilising his caboose.
However, this mode became awesome to me yesterday. Something about how dense that armour is.. remember when Dreamwave explained away the bullshit size of his shuttle form, how it condensed down to create a well 'ard bastard? I do. FML. I'M SUCH A NERD.
Anyway, he's also a fucking great toy when all is said and done. Well engineered, solid as a rock, very pretty and fun to arse about with. If you haven't, you should.
Happy Birthday @doucoo - have a great day!!
