    Oreo & Rebecca exploring the new package from @Siege Fan,

    Rebecca working out how to scale the side of the washing basket in the kitchen,

    The fur on Rebecca's tail isn't fully regrown yet but should be back to normal in a couple of weeks, it's happened every year we've had her so not worried like when Oreo briefly lost patches of hair on his back.

    @MyTea Boc,
    International Toilet Day?

    That explains why the ferrets are extra regular! :D

    'Voyager' Primal certainly is a shortarse isn't he? Still, not as short as deluxe cybertron primal

    And that's me properly off Primal. I ain't paying Voyager price for deluxe on Hot Rod, I aint doing it on Primal where he don't even need a bunch of fancy engineering to justify the cost.

    T'isn't just world crapper day, tis also the sombre anniversary of my birth.

    Usually thst would mean a trip to the pub and a bit of the aul shite talk with my mates, but not this year.
    A mate just dropped these off though.
    IMG_20201119_173615.jpg
    Young me, and apparently it says 'I pooed myself' hard to see though.

    Nor all the blast effects or matrix bits.
    Between shorty and rubber barney I'm a wee bit disheartened, but not cancelling my pre orders.

    Heads up kiddiewinks, Forbidden Planet Manchester has Runamuck, Sunstreaker, Trailbreaker and Fasttrack in as of today. They're doing mailorder and click and collect so if you want one, message them via their Instagram or give them a ring in the morning. If you do, please be nice as it's only Mrs. O actually in the shop taking care of the stock and sending stuff out.

    In preorders news, I have had no invoices for owt TF-related yet, but I've given the nod to Mezco 1/12 Doctor Fate and the new, non-sexualised at last, Hexa Gear female figure that's due next year via Into The Verse Toys - new site run by a very very nice bloke with very very reasonable prices - Into The Verse Toys - Retro Action Figures, Model Kits & Collectibles! . I chat to him on Instagram quite often.

    I'm in the same boat with my Runamuck, dispatch email on the 6th and no sign yet. I'm thinking it's a slow down with Royal Mail, though my wife has had a tracked 2nd class parcel go missing as well, even though it says it's been delivered.

    Also, not sure if I read your post wrong but I'm assuming it's your birthday @MyTea Boc , in which case happy birthday!

    Happy birthday @MyTea Boc

    Woah, thats in fantastic condition.

    Cleared my table in my office/man cave/escape from the dumpster fire of 2020 (mainly because sister in law is coming so we need to put up an airbed in here for her which means removing the table and chairs). So what's the first thing one is meant to do with an empty table?

    Wouldn’t it be good if Black Zarak was revealed on Black Friday?

    I’m not paying £25 for Kingdom Primal, rubber fetish Barney is a no no too.

    Oh, and don’t you just hate not being able to give good feedback on eBay because even though you’ve had the package for a few days, eBay says you haven’t :rolleyes: 

    Happy birthday @MyTea Boc , perhaps you should celebrate in the men’s toilet;)

    Barneytron having a lot of rubber bits has me feeling a bit like Roy in this pic,
    [​IMG]Keano by Brendan Mitchell, on Flickr

    Between an overpriced, QC nightmare of a Masterpiece and a QC nightmare waiting to happen with the Kingdom version it seems like my best bet for a Barneytron is the original, at least until someone does a Legends version.

    I may still give the new Primal a go as I like the gorilla mode as it's very different in style to the MP version.

    Having a bit of fun with my ER Runamuck (Ram). The G1 one was one of my favourites as a kid (loved the transformation gimmick) so I had to grab the Timelines Ram and do a group shot.

    20201119_084006.jpg

    Thing is... I don't quite like the deco on ER Ram, so I am doing a simple customisation, I've added a heat rub 'Con symbol to his chest, a fat 'Con symbol on the bonnet (still transforms) and am painting out the tampo 'Con symbol off the car roof.

    20201119_210805.jpg

    20201119_211816.jpg

    Hmmm... unless that tampo comes off from the roof? Experiment time...
