    No hurty the hedgehog!

    That is an evil looking crotch!

    What were they ON when they decided the colourschemes for G2 bots?

    Aww

    Oh and forgot to post these yesterday: My arrivals from ID Toy's Black Friday sale:

    Though I also have SS Driftcopter and some BotBots on the way I forgot to order at the same time. I really like Cyberverse Arcee and frankly enjoying her a heck of a lot more than ER Arcee. I'm also thinking I might use a head from a second copy of her for my planned Non-Playskool Female Whirl custom I have in mind, especially as I want to have a go at making IDW Moonracer with this mold and the head from my spare PotP Moonracer so would have her head to spare anyway ^^

    Also quite enjoying SS Sentinel Prime. I originally bought him with the intention to mod him into a Prima figure with a silver paintjob but I fear I'm enjoying his red too much... I'm gonna end up getting a second one of him too aren't I? xD

    Yep, the rest have been confirmed in one way or another to be coming in a second wave.

    Gotta be LSD for the G2 era, hasn't it? Something trippy anyway!

    I wish I didn’t have to! I have approximately 5 times more stuff than shelf space. Besides, toys is for playin’ dagnabbit! My MPs are safely detolfed, though.

    Thanks @Q Prime! Do you know if that extends to the Decepticon Targetmasters?

    Well, after getting a surprise text from Royal Mail claiming that my MPM Jazz from Kapow was coming today 'before 7:30', absolutely sweet FA turned up. Quelle surprise.

    I'm still waiting for kapow to ship mine :( 
    looks I could have ordered and received 5 from mygeekbox in the time since I paid. Gonna have to call next week as they've not replied to a contact form either. Disappointing as they are usually very good. Anyone else still waiting?


    Glad you like Arcee, ID refunded me as they sold too many. Not seen her anywhere else either. If anyone has any clues I'd be grateful!

    I don't "know" anything, I just have way too much time on my hands - and even more than usual with Lockdown plus no specific Custom projects! :p 
    My suspicions are Kingdom Voyager Starscream will be a repack BUT there has been someone claim that Kingdom art with an F-22 Raptor-like 'Screamer on it had been seen. Personally I'm taking that with a MAHOOSIVE pinch of salt, and running with "Probably a Re-pack" until solid proof otherwise.
    There was a rumour that Wave 2 would complete the OG1 regular Headmasters with a lighter-coloured Punch/Counterpunch filling out the "Wave 2"s slots to four like but now he's proved to be in the GOC box set so it could be an assortment of 3 possibly? Though I can't help wondering if the OG toy colours P/CP could possibly crop up in it.
    I'd like to see @Q Prime's receipts for that assertion to be honest. I reckon it could be up in the air, and I think whatever happens to it will depend on the sales of this first "wave". I wouldn't hold out hope for missing Targetmasters & Headmasters as yet TBH.

    *Groan* Playing a few hours of VR paintball and laser tag with friends almost feels like exercise, my feet are worn out...
    (Also the wall has a few more scrape marks... Whoops!)

    I’d definitely buy the ER Starscream mold again if it was retooled as an F-22. Hell, I’d buy it repainted in grey as a Bayverse homage in selects too!

    Don't feel bad, I don't have the space to have all my bots out at once, I rotate them in and out perched on various spots on my desk and as you say they're for playing with!

    Sorry to hear that :(  hopefully she'll become more readily available soon.

    ...

    So I just did a quick digibash and now I think I'll have to try and track done another Siege Ironhide and some red, blue and grey paint...

    So my Black Rorit, Rorich, Ro... er, Gold Fasttrack has been paid for from SAF, should be with me soon. Just waiting for an invoice for Gigawatt from Kapow, and that will be all preorders done and dusted.

    Also, my 7 year old son is watching the Mandalorian, my 6 year old son is singing East bound and down, and my 4 year old daughter is playing with my Cobra Hiss tank. I think I’m doing this parenting thing right:)

    Sad face on the missing Targetmasters and Headmasters :( 

    Could we get a Selects Needlenose out of a re-tool of Kingdom Starscream? A lot of wishful thikning this Sunday night by me.

    Same here. Pretty sure I'd buy any colour variations of the siege or ER seeker mold.

    Ahhh serenity.

    100% correct.

    I might take you up on that but I'm a bit low on the old dosh right now, especially with Christmas coming up...
