    Both of those are site-wide as best I can tell, the £1-off is on Prime orders over a tenner, and the card thingie shows up everywhere, so it's not as if they're doing their best to shift poor old Exhuast XD

    Fair point well made. I did pay the full balance as well, so the money has already come out of my account.

    WHAT WHAT WHAT WHAAAAAAAAAAAAT?!?!? NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!

    I'll be on the lookout for more Centurion drones when they turn up and there's plenty of folks who only want the accessories. Worth keeping the preorder.

    Thanks for looking @Siege Fan , I won't cry about not having the UNIT lads too much as I've got a Brigadier in the Daemons set with Mr Magister and the chap with the wings.

    Still waiting on an MFT Iron Sky that was ordered from eBay last month but has a potential delivery date of September 22nd (!!) - reliable seller though. so I'm not too worried - but the UT Dragoon I ordered just over a week ago from ShowZ arrived today...

    He's a hell of a thing but the instructions are absolutely bobbins so I had to watch a Benscollectables video to figure out his complicated leg transformation. Broke a wee bit during it too -

    [​IMG]

    Looks like the back half of the lower hinge on his side gun was deformed and sheared off against the ridge when being unfolded. No big deal, though, as it doesn't affect anything and isn't at much risk from further wear and tear.

    Argy-bargy aside, he's quite the step-up from Rendsora and no mistake!!

    He came with a spare head for UT Challenger with a spring-loaded twirling two-face gimmick -

    Anyone need this?

    @Siege Fan,
    Nice one!, just sent the cash a couple of minutes ago! :) 

    Watched Thew's Sky Lynx review a little while ago and had a good chuckle at his names for the various modes...I particularly liked "travel slab" as a description for the carrier section :D

    Were you just trying to play it run and gun style where you just hold down the fire button constantly? Because that just makes it harder. If you play it the "hard" way and pick and choose your shots and concentrate on getting your multiples of 3 you'll be much better.

    I recommend you learn each level by: playing through without firing and avoid everything, then play through just shooting white enemies without any flak, then play through again shooting black enemies to learn attack patterns, then just play the level without firing but bullet eat as you go to learn to switch. Once you've gotten proficient at each of those techniques, it's time to string them together, and you should find it easier than just holding down fire and getting loads of flak on screen. Minimising flak is key in later levels.

    Never forget you can complete the game without firing a single shot.

    Oh, yes so you know my style? Tbh I got rid of it long ago. I did just check it out, and it turns out it's hella expensive now! Quick get it for free!

    Edit. It's only £7 on steam though. I think it's time to sell the gamecube!

    I think that sums up my experience with schumps in general, I like them but I'll always be terrible at them. :lol  Randomly remember turning an old CRT TV on its side to replicate TATE mode when I last played Ikaruga a few years back.

    Ah, of course! The ol' blunderbuss approach to "GET DIS AMAZON CREDIT CARD!" and a cursory flick through some more random listings it appears the listings it isn't on are probably not direct from Amazon offerings which makes sense!

    Evening all!

    If Rodentus hasn't sorted you out then I have a few Alternators left including a lovely Shockwave available in my sales thread!
    Drop me a PM if you're still looking? ;)

    Unfortunately I ended up wasting Rodentus Time, I had hoping alternators were deluxe but I think they're more voyager. So my search for a deluxe shockwave continues

    I remember when I had it before I felt it was a little skinny in the legs. But now that you've mentioned it I'm thinking it might work. Anyone selling?

    Can I recommend a Deep Pro? Sturdy with a see-through top, perfectly proportioned and holding a lot in, you can buy one at S&M. Er, B&M. Pug not included but make me an offer, those farts would see off you know what.

    All joking aside, I use one of these for all the Marvel Legends/Transformers bits and pieces, and the latest one here is storing the ridiculous amount of stands I need for those most dramatic of poses. Can't recommend these enough!

    Any of the Cyberverse Shockwaves fit the bill? There was the recent Deluxe or the similarly sized Warrior class version?

    If I can find mine and dig him out of wherever he’s been hiding for the last two years, we can work something out? He’s complete to my knowledge just remember him being very dusty :)
