    Thanks and yeah it seems like the cheaper options still aren't available - being the cheapskate I am I guess I'll wait a bit longer and hope in vain that things normalise a bit more (especially since I'll inevitably have to pay the customs fee too). Hope your package turns up soon or that you can at least get a replacement without too much hassle.

    It's a Yakshima Just Click 3 I think? They do a Just Click 2 which (you guessed it) takes 2 wirh an option for 1 more. RRP is something rediculous but because the one I did buy was only partially fulfilled I got the upgrade to this one. Got it from an Online Store The Roof Box Company. They've been very good throughout this process.

    I had 3 bikes on it today, 2 adult bikes and a smaller one and it seems to have been fine. The bikes were still there at the end of the trip anyway.

    Popped into The Spacebridge shop in New Milton, it really would be too easy to spend an obscene amount of money. I'm only resisting because I sold a bunch of G1 (so why would I need more?) and thanks to Generations don't really have space for other toy lines. I did come vewwwy close to buying a CW Darkwind/Dreadwind combo. I might cave and buy them later...

    Anyway today I only bought a Scorponok Titan Master (the one that comed with Grotusque) and an Animated Activator Grimlock. Oh and a Jada Toys '07 Movie Optimus Prime, which caught my eye literally as I was going out the front door.

    As I said, dangerous.

    I took the punt because it's served me fine on a number of £15 Kotobukiya Model Support Good orders, and the last one came in a box of Amazon ridiculous proportionally size, 4 or 5 baggies of sprued plastic bits, vac-plastic-ed to a square of cardboard in the bottom of a box big enough for 2 WFC deluxe size boxes! :rolleyes2 
    The irony of an item that would require a decent amount of that parcel space not making it is quite amusing. :lol

    Rotorstorm's looking great! really excited to get him!

    He's the only other Transformer I have ordered at the moment although Sky Lynx will be bought if my other ebay auctions end well in a few days.....in a year or so's time I can pose him attacking a Sentinel :D 

    EDIT,
    Just checked my tracking info and my MFT Highbrow has now arrived in the UK so I'll see how long that takes from this point....my Magic Square Seekers reached these shores early Monday and haven't showed yet but some progress is better than none.

    Doubledealer showed up in Republic before Northern Ireland, conversion between Euros and pounds means he’d be £50 if I bought him there, so no thank you. Still waiting for him to actually show up in Smyths physically in the North.

    Bad? Maybe. Certainly fun though. I did enjoy the little yoda chuckle every time you grabbed a pickup. It was the first Episode 1 game i loved playing though. The action puzzle one where you could kill everyone in mos espa without a game over but anakin refuses to help so you do get stuck anyway. Put in the invincibility cheat, man the jawa turret and go to town on them. Those jawas went ballistic. Literally, five of them doing rapid fire rockets right in your face. Fun times.

    It never ends.

    Think you might need to reinforce the display for the sheer weight of that figure. Not sure Sky Lynx would be able to break Sentinel fall if the figure were to topple over. Still blown away by the weight coming in at a whopping 12kg.

    Take Sentinel over the local park for a photo of the two of you having a kick about. Put him in a United shirt. Lol

    Will have to check the IKEA website info for my bookcases to see what the weight limit is.....one shelf holds all 5 Fan Toys Dinobots with no problem and their total weight must be quite a bit.

    If I get the Sentinel it'll get as far as my back garden if the weather's nice , the nearest park is usually covered in poo and stuff left by the local druggies :oops: 

    I can do a pic of him chilling by the pond :D 

    EDIT
    Looks as if the weight limit per shelf is 30kg so I'll be OK, good thing the Billy bookcases have easily adjustable shelves as it won't take long to reconfigure it and it's not in a part of my room where the ferrets could climb to it either.

    Nice! Grabbed. I paid a bit extra for Apeface to get him early, and I enjoyed him immensely. It’s one less to worry about later on in the year.

    Hey folks,

    I'm back again with a couple of new videos, in case you fancy!

    First up is a look at the Fext Hobby display sets, which are pretty ace.



    Next up is MP Loudpedal because... well, he's awesome!

    Hurm. I hope ID listing this doesn't indicate a likely delay to Snappy's purported mid-August arrival.

    I can definitely recommend X-Force. X-Men is an odd book, as it doesnt tell whole story arcs, but it's certainly ambitious!

    I also had two very nice arrivals today. Amazon Prime and the Iron Factory mini Windblade figure which I probably spent too much on but I loves me Windblade figures ^^'

    Grrr, bit miffed, my Kultur turned up, and it's a lovely figure, but just my luck, one of the ankles is backwards. Just shot a message to the seller, hopefully there's some sort of remedy, but it does feel like I've been cursed by the QC gods lately XD

    Oh yeah, it was terrible. Back then, game magazine reviews were my gospel, and they all said it was utter shite. But... y'know... Star Wars.

    I know. I was part of the problem.
