    I told myself I didn't need tiger tracks. I've already got 3 versions with gigawat to come at some point. But... Damn. Just a pretty carbot.

    So what's your Tuesday night routine? :p 

    The sideswipe mold is gorgeous. He's taken my no. 1 spot. I hope sunstreaker has the same alt mode somehow

    Hardcore hand holding. Oh yeah.

    ER streaker is alas different. But always the possibility of some head swappage with tiger track.

    I'm sure I'm not the first to say this, but while I understand Bluestreak is an actual term and that, but why is the blue Transformer called Smokescreen, and the smoke-coloured Transformer called Bluestreak?

    It drives my girlfriend spare. They don't have a great memory for Transformers outside of the particularly distinctive ones as it is, and when I told them about Bluestreak and Smokescreen, they almost went all Prowl on the coffee table.

    Also, hi everyone! Hope you're all well.

    In non TF news Halo infinite has been delayed until 2021. I am salty. Literally the only game I was looking forward to in the next 4 months.

    Wish I'd picked this guy up when he was going cheap in Argos. Much nicer colour scheme. Lovely pics as ever, Jon.

    After 2020 started slow in the Transformers acquisition department, I appear to be on course to break my 2019 record! I've got pretty much all of my Wants now (released ones, anyway) but a bunch of Likes have popped up second-hand at reasonable prices... be rude not to :)  ...so I have CW First Aid and the absolute unit POTP Elita-1 inbound, as well as my brace of Wrecktastic Selects releases.

    My IDW1 re-read is now up to Phase Two Volume 4. I find Barber's work making more sense when read like this, whole arcs with only short gaps between. Also, knowing what it's building up to enhances my enjoyment. Interestingly the opposite is true for Roberts' stuff - I still love reading it and I appreciate the seeds sown which I now know pop up later, but overall I got the most fun out of the first read

    Happy birthday to @Braddock. Hope you have a great day, fella.

    I used to have this. Can't remember the G1 episodes on it but I do remember it being in one of those huge rental type cases.

    Bluestreak looks very, very good. Much better than the renders, both because he has the new head and the colours just look nicer.

    Another case of a console releasing without the game everyone wants it for. Unbelievable. I’d imagine the reason for the delay is that the game needs more polish, but they still should have planned this properly. At least they’re not releasing an unfinished product, I suppose.

    I have a feeling our copy isn't legit.


    Happy birthday @Braddock

    I love gaming again! Horizon Zero Dawn last night on my pc for pretty much 4 hours straight... that’s the first time I have done that with a game over a year.

    Now can I stay off it today and do work stuff till tonight?

    Oh and found a potential lighting solution for my Detolfs. Mains powered, individual lights with dimming control, remote control, and about £42 for 2 cabinets. Will try the installation by the end of the week but does look promising!

    No, but he’s been rumoured for a while. It’s possible we’ll get him in part 3.
