    Still a better danger room sequence than any of the official films...

    What is with the scarcity of CW Combaticons? I paid £24 for shuttle Blast-Off and I thought he would be the pricey/hard to find deluxe.

    Almost definitely the plot of a B- movie.

    Might be using this in an art course I'm doing, submitted it as a reference under the topic of "playing with shadow"!

    Oh aye, they were referring to bw megatron starting another war. The (unintentional) reference to g1 was in regards to the great war itself.

    Just watched Endgame for the first time since it came out. Bloody love that thing. Seeing that on opening afternoon will be one of my top 5 moments of my life. What an experience it was. The crowd was so hyped during that final battle. Also,
    wanda has her accent in endgame but not in wandavision. I hope she gets the accent back when they break out into normal reality.


    Trying to decide if i want a kingdom primal. I have the original amd the mp, and no place for him in my collection. I'm gonna try to get the ko mp bw megs, so not sure I'll get the kingdom megs either. So not even able to set the pair against each other. But on the other hand, it's primal and he looks really good.

    TR Weirdwolf is awesome, but that hinge completely compromises it as a toy. To put it in perspective, I would rather recommend a kid to play with Earthrise Arcee.

    I've seen that sign in real life! It's near The Tank Museum in Bovington.


    Fantastic place, it has so many vehicles (including Little Willy, the first tank ever built) they have to rotate them in and out of the main building and the separate conservation warehouse. Really need to give it a visit again when air travel is safe.

    I've been past the sign several times while going to Monkey world - it's not *that* far from me.

    Netflix wheeljack - when you realise quite a while after the fact, you've just paid £2 extra for someone NOT to spaff ""battle damage"/cheap silver paint on your toy.

    Just emailed Amazon US about the BS situation with not shipping to NI (nor are their European branches)... thought I'd done it weeks ago!

    Bit mad when you've exclusive pre-orders, so I'll post any replies here in case they're useful to the NI crew.

    Anyone got any old Argos catalogue scans with transformers from the 80s?
    I'd like some to keep to hand to pull out and wave at people in FB sales threads, as apparently flapping a thing showing what something sold for; now grants some sort of easement to sell at that price to people in the future.
    Priced claimed to be high, I fairly stated that if it could be beat in UK I'd match it. Cue screen grabs of sold eBay listings............ And? And?

    I bought 12 siege figures for a hundred quid - I don't now think that's JUST the price of them now?!?
    I saw a guy literally give away most of combiner wars/titans return/siege and Earthrise - boxed - £1000. .. . I DO NOT TAKE THIS AS THE GOING RATE MOVING FORWARDS!!!!!

    I really need to go!!! I've seen all the lindybeige videos set there!! Yes tanks!!!

    Why even care what they think?
    The price is the price, but you gotta haggle, 'ten for that you must be mad!'
    Going on a rant about it is just an exercise in futility.

    Ugh... Your right, I'm moaning here rather then at the Mrs and that's unfair. Apologies.
