    No probs. She also got offered Bugbite too but, tbh, based on how many pics I've seen of him online I told her not to bother as he'll probably end up shelfwarming by the time he shows up.

    Abso-flipping-lutely. If it wasn't for the chest I'd be tempted to buy one just to repaint it!

    Totally agree.

    I think Kapow/IDT had them up for £90 and factor in shipping another £2.50-£3 on top of that.

    I don’t have the attachment to the Quint characters like some do and I thought some were still after this in the group and that price seems to be on the better side.

    I’ve kept away from it.

    I wouldn’t mind having Skywarp in the siege mould as well as the Rainmakers but the prices are crazy.

    Only for getting it from an American friend I wouldn't have paid the IDT/eBay mark-up. Not remotely worth it.

    Woo! I am genuinely really happy for your man, you've waited long enough! :thumb 

    Might I suggest, T-Man?

    YES!

    GET IN MY MOUTH RIGHT NOW
    I am so genuinely excited for this right now, the first Crossover fig that has done so!:rock :mail 

    Though, definitely gonna need to come up with a better name for him!

    Oh shit you're right! Right in the nostalgia for me too as my introduction to X-Men was the 90s cartoon so those colours scream X-Men for me!

    :lol I admire your daughter's creativity!
    Till all are bun

    He's quite a cool little version of the bug - I can't remember the last Bumblebee I bought TBH - I'm still using Classics Bee in my CHUG display though I did actually buy Gen T30 deluxe Bee but he is still in storage MOSC! :rolleyes: 
    Oh I would absolutely love to see The Cybertronic Spree! I've just watched them doing The Racoons theme tune Run With Us on YT off the back of your post :thumb 

    A couple of days ago some of you folks where talking about celebrity crushes and the like and the very lovely Gillian Anderson was brought up, and rightly so IMO! ;) 
    Well the missus and I have been watching The Crown on Netflix - the new season has been released... and just found this out... erm...

    When you get it in hand I’m sure the price paid will be less of an issue unless your expectations of the set are not met.

    I’m the mug who got the mostly costly Exhaust out of everyone. All in for £45. From the US. Shipping cost same price as the figure and then bummed with RMs admin charge and import fees. All because I couldn’t wait and thought the UK would struggle to get the figure.

    If the price of the Pit was inline with the sale price in the US I’d probably bite and get it.

    My favourite Scourge figure before the RID version took that spot:

    Apparently, this series is going to be about an incarnation of the character that hasn’t debuted in comics yet. Strange choice.

    absolutely miserable day outside, couldn’t even tell that it was 7:30-ish when I looked through the window. And to think, in the US it might be snowing within a month or so, and all we get is rain. :confused:

    After the success of the rest of the stable they probably can get away with it, I spose.

    Weather in Belfast is ok at the minute, though building up to rain allegedly.
    ...

    Pretty sure Megs here will be on clearance before long tbh.
