    2018- “Aw god another bumblebee, for fucks sake.”
    2020- “central command, we have one figure spotted at Kirkstall, I repeat one target. Sending coordinates to thread tacticians...”

    The piano riff on the promo intro sounds like the 'Still' version of NIN's "Something I Can Never Have"?! That's just mean! :lolol

    Ah I see the scalpers have begun to make their move, we must outflank them men.

    We shall fight on the webpage, we shall fight in the car-parks , we shall fight in the entrances and in the aisles, we shall fight at the tills; we shall never surrender

    Do not be discouraged, comrades. The end is in sight, soon we will have secured our objective and acquired the Yellow bugger. The war is nearly won, but to stop fighting now is to lose it.

    CALENDAR UPDATE

    I have not been idle, simply waiting for orders to come in (relatvely slow this year, but there's still a couple of weeks to go).

    @scubaboy31 has provided luscious new line art for the TF Universe Hubcrap page which I have coloured as faithfully to the old Marvel comics as I could... take a look!

    [​IMG]

    And, if you look closely it's not flat shaded... in full size it is in fact half toned! Which means (hopefully) when it's printed it should look just like a vintage Marvel page.

    Yeah.

    Gonna punch ya right in the nostalgia.

    Anyway if you want one of these (now finer) calendars drop me a PM! £15 each plus p&p!

    Thought we were done for the night, but the gang has just popped up in Cheltenham.

    We have a truck on the road folks!


    Edit: referring to my map, its was probably delivered the same time as Gloucester but only just gone on the system.

    What has this pandemic reduced the human race to? If you told anyone in 2019 of the F5 pressing and logistics monitoring that we'd be partaking in we'd have been getting people committed!

    2020 has a lot to answer for :lol 

    Anyway, why are you reading this? :gen069:  back to the Smyths satnav tracking, or hacking the ID website ready for Fan Friday ...

    Jeeeeeez. Post 300,000!

    That's a lot of posts...

    Anyway this whole Smyths thing is crazy. I picked up a couple of things from Smyths the other day (Christmas innit) by Click and Collect but um... we're supposed to be in a Lockdown? I dunno. This feels a lot more lax than Lockdown 1... and without wanting to burst anyones bubble I'm afraid it's simply not going to be enough to ease off the NHS, especially with flu season on it's way.

    Gaaah.

    *goes back to hitting F5*
