    Yesh, I'm with Siege Fan on this Chris, I think you'd be without your rights to drop them a 'where the fuck it at' e-mail now.

    See now we need a re-do of the weather girls singing about it raining snakes too.

    Operation metalhawk continues, decided to cast t30 doubledealers wings and push the peg further. Used wilkos 2 part epoxy resin, nice and clear and not bad for 3 quid

    I honestly don't know how the collectors market will take to them. I cant see them sitting at 200. With a HW super you're getting improved paint and the nicer real rider wheels these are just really shiny. Maybe if they stick around the price will stick I guess it also depends on how rare they are. If it's one silver car in every case maybe they will settle at double or triple retail. I think that's the case for normal HW TH cars. Supers are something silly like 1 car for every 10 cases... but how many of those get stolen is another question. Supers values are wildly broken due to theft at the factory.

    Nice work so far dude. Those wings turned out really well.

    Evening all.

    New comics day today. Picked up the following

    Transformers: Secrets and Lies #1
    X-Men 10
    X-Factor #1

    Secrets and Lies was.....ok. Decent art from Guido Guidi (as ever) with that nice retro vibe.

    X-Men is rapidly losing me. X-Factor was a joy.

    Anyone else get anything? Knonw there's a couple of comics buffs on here...

    Evening All.

    Hope everyone has had a great day.

    Not long been online and saw someone had posted this in the ‘Most Recent TF purchase thread’ showing they had received Rotorstorm:

    Agghhhhhhh why is Thew so good at making me like things?? Like, Jetfire was of no interest to me, but if I see Sky Lynx drop to £50 or so later in the year, I might have to go for it, if only for that lovely base mode...

    Sidenote, I know it's old news, but Christ checking out the thread for the new Windblade thingie was a mistake, it's like a bugzapper drawing in the most aggressive users. I'm not gonna fall into the folly of acting we're a perfect bunch compared to other fans, but I don't think I've ever seen vitriol like that in this thread, it's honestly a little scary how people are verbally beating the shit out of each other because the Sexy Robot's underwear has changed shape.

    Was on the fence about him, more so leaning towards getting him once I heard about and saw the new head but that looks awesome.

    Ugh...it’s that time again old pal *grabs wallet*

    A Happy Birthday to @doucoo.
    Looking back on it, Jedi Power Battles is kind of a bad game... but of course Star Wars obsessed younger-me liked to force much less interested friends to play it with me. :D I still have it, laying in waiting for me to inflict it upon others.

    Mind if I ask which delivery method you chose? I have something waiting in the 'private warehouse' for me to ship it so I wonder if it's worth risking it.

    Sky Lynx is fun and much like Thew says I feel like both he and Ironworks have made me really appreciate base modes.

    I went for lowest SAL/Small Air Packet but I don't think it can be selected right now due to COVID Protocols, according to the current Shipping Info by country, which wasn't the case when I took the punt.

    I PO’d Rotorstorm the moment the figure was available. I like the mould. I’ve actually gone just a week without placing anymore orders. Quite surprised at my restraint. It won’t last. My wallet is appreciating the break but I keep getting drawn to G-Creation Grimlock. I’m about to receive 3 Daban Constructicons and if they scale well with Siege/ER, will push the button on the other three. Sigh- G-Creation Grim will have to wait a little longer. Like others I’m waiting on Snapdragon. When will this end? :D

    Good old play dough, I keep meaning to do a proper casting using clay, silicone and resin but I've just not got round to it or found anything I want to cast that desperately.

    This is just a simple push mould and 2 part epoxy mixed and poured in.

    :D 

    Yeah, he looks spot on, and is crazy moveable. My ratio of robots is currently way lower to classified/Mcfarlane/marvel legends preorders. And that’s no knock on tfs!


    You finally said it! I ... love spending time with you too.

    I’ve got the trades for men and x force on preorder; feels like ages since dox started so I’m looking forward to getting started with it.
