    If I got Netflix Hound and Sideswipe, would anyone want Hound without the backdrop?

    It is saying for me that its dispatched usually within 1-2 months. hmmmm.


    Tis Halloween week, so I'm hoping to get a scary movie watched each night this week, and hopefully a spooky-ish pic.

    Slasher movie

    Well Jell of all the documented early Alliance arrivals, particularly as I'm now keen to see if I can swap the Bluestreak head on ER Prowl with CW Prowl's handsome fizzog as the nuts do see a similar size at least externally.

    Not happening, tried it with Streetwise and ER's peg is too big.

    Dang!

    A second Quick Q for Airwave already have-ers, I thought I heard/read a reviewer say that there wasn't an official Weaponiser build on Airwave's Instructions but it can't track it down, is that true or have I perhaps misinterpretated the statement?
    If it is true then that means that's the "extra" mode on Hothouse's sheet, as it shows him pimping out Tigertrack, and "pimping" is the right word given the very disco-tinged upgrade! :p

    WST/Justitoys Dinobots
    WST Soundwave, Jazz, Starscream, Megatron and a VSX set (Prime vs Megatron) - all unused as they were duplicates from wave 2.5... (again, makes me miss Ellis Models! - really nice chap)

    All wile working out if I can start getting rid of some third party boxes... First to go? Maketoys Giant and MMC Feral Rex - Can't see me moving these sets on in the near future.

    Finally my OS Siege Ultra Magnus arrived today.

    2 weeks it took via a Chinese eBay seller. Great heft to the figure and use of diecast. A welcome boost in the height for bot mode. Straightened feet and legs. Clean paint job. The figure has the legs filled in as well. @robotmel - Cheers for your thoughts and comments to the thread I started on this:

    Siege Ultra Magnus (+ leg extension/filler kit) V BPF OS Siege Ultra Magnus

    Only £28.50 and that’s inclusive of shipping. Absolute bargain!! Now need to think about moving on my original Siege UM.

    Funny that of all figures to be a bait and switch it's Mirage

    Is that Psylocke in her X-Force colours? Phew. For a minute I thought they had put a figure I might have been interested in with two characters I've no interest in :lol

    The basic premise was. 12 colonies of humans attacked by robots called cylons, Galactica leading a ragtag bunch of civilian surviving ships on a quest to find the lost 13th tribe called Earth. All the designs of 'The First Cyclon War' are carried over from the original show (such as the circular Basestar, the Viper MkII, the Cylon Centurion seen in the Galactica museum but Galactica herself has a new design from the old show) but pretty much everything else is new. Cylons in the original show were robots made from an alien race that killed their masters and then went postal trying to wipe out all other life in the galaxy, Baltar knew he was betraying the colonies and was leading the Cylon fleet that was hunting Galactica's fleet, there were no human Cylons, they used lasers instead of bullets, Athena was also Adama's daughter, Boomer and Starbuck were males, the call signs like Apollo, Athena, Boomer, Starbuck and so on were the characters actual names, there was no civilian government so no president Rosilin or anything like that, Adama was in charge of everything. This show was a reboot done right, take the core concept of the original, and do a completely new story with it. Frak was a carryover from the old show though. And the Colonial Anthem (you heard it play when they were introducing Baltar on TV when he first appeared in the pilot) was the theme tune of the old show. And in a nice callback of love to the original, there is a character who will be introduced and he is played by Richard Hatch, the guy who played the original Apollo. But as for where and when he will appear....

    Sorry if I get rambly, the BSG reboot is in my top 3 favourite shows so I get a bit carried away when talking about it.


    Just had a pidgeon fly rather hard into the bedroom window. Right beside where I'm sitting. Gave me such a bloody jump, my poor heart is still racing!


    The faux parts on jet shatter are an absolute necessary, since she doesnt have car parts in her alt mode. That I'm fine with, and if it needs to have fake parts to look the part, I'm fine with that, like with shatter. But like with car shatter, he chest is more straight and a little wider than it should be for screen accuracy, but that's because her actual bonnet is forming the chest. Thats the kind of thing I'm thinking of. But like, the current masterpieces where even starscream has a fake chest cockpit? I can understand it on MP figures to get that absolute toon look (although I don't see a difference on Starscream so not sure why he has one), but on mainline figures, I'd rather the slightly less accurate look for the actual alt mode parts making that part of the robot properly. I'm with you on scale, as long as it's about right, ballpark figure, it's all good.


    As for BSG, I was gonna put it in spoiler tags, but I think it's safer for convoy if we carry on in pm.

    I just use whatever's the correct shape for the size of the job then clean it immediately afterwards.
