Uhh...so...ER large deluxe sized semi-IF-KO Tarn anyone?
Tarn - TF - SirToys.com
HA! Buy THREE to get ONE in correct colours, is it?
I really don't think ER Huffer's for me, and the nail in the coffin is my prissy fussiness that there is way too much blue at the back of his Hoodie.
Might still go for Pipes though, if it turns out to be true his Cab transforms the "right" way, and he gets the back of the cab behind his head instead of the cab cowl. That's the only thing Heikew does wrong.
I have a spare sheet or two mate, pm me your address.
Might be hard to prove, but worth a shot dude.
It's a shame the figure is a bit naff. Who knows, an extreme retool of ss scourge could give us a new boat mcboatface.
Thundertron is a fine figure. More pirates in tf form!
Why thank you!
I hear you, we need an elita six changer!
I could absolutely believe this is true, but it's fucking incredibly dumb in the space year of 2021.
In the mid 80s major US stores collectively told Mattel they needed restocks of He-Man and Skeletor because they couldn't sell ancillary characters to new folks getting into the line. While Mattel fucked that up badly, it's early proof that stores have demanded more stock and indeed know what stock it needs to be. It's the same now with Smyths managers on forums saying they can't get restocks, or Forbidden Planet and many others complaining to Hasbro about stock at every level and us and them eventually seeing the creation of Hasbro UK (yes, I know).
In other words, there's no excuse for this shit. There just isn't. And definitely not while Hasbro purely as an example are doing repacks of 'Shelfwarmers! Clogging up the aisles!' like Arcee, Wheeljack, fucking Siege Megatron... All the data is sitting right there. There's Hasbro Pulse, or from Mattel's Matty Collector days, or even a bloody good guess at the numbers Super 7 and Funko are doing with your own IP!
Jesus Christ, just asking e-tailers what numbers they do in pre-orders would help everybody as a guide for the future. Instead everybody gets angry!
I've had SXS Hot Flame for almost two years and I still don't have a badge on him. The only 3P figure I have that has the badge on is MMC Megs, because @bcm77 had already applied one!
3rd February, according to Comixology. Three days before my birthday, so it'll be a nice treat! But yeah, certain segments of the fandom are absolutely losing it because there have been two new characters revealed for the series. It's for Totally Reasonable Reasons and not because they're both girls, honest.
Apparently I just snagged the last Quintesson Judge in stock for home delivery at Smyths.
I think Blurr will be in his sweet-looking alt mode, it's those bloody sleeves! Lol
This is the price of LEGO Ideas 21326 Winnie the Pooh
Hmmm, that’s a lot of money! It looks like it’s only on a 16x24 plate or similar so it’s a small set too. Licensing I guess is the killer, but the Flintstones one was similar in size and around £55 so it’s a considerable increase. Oh well, like the Sesame Street set it’s a no from me.... got me Barracuda Bay to purchase soon!
Yup, lotta cool sets but the prices are nuts, and whoever thought those WTP figures were acceptable
I'm actually glad I didn't buy things like the GB Firehouse because while extremely cool it would have meant no space for things like the Bay, Harley Davidson, Batmobiles, and upcoming castle...
I have some concern that only things that have passed through eBay's hands or has eBay paperwork for their dispatch mention will actually have the proper paperwork not to get charged twice - time will tell if it actually works or not I guess.
It might be an advantage for buying of someone like Mandarake's outlet and a complete pain for piddly little items that really shouldn't be being taxed in the 1st place as they are under £15.00. (as eBay is still taxing you) where Amazone doesn't on items under £15.00 (unless that has changed now too).
But it's adding cost not - value. & added cost just is only going to make me go elsewhere or spend less.
Wow, that's bad luck on Sunstreaker, mine is tighter than....well, I think most comparisons have been exhausted but suffice to say he's a stiff ol' chap. It's a shame these tolerances vary so much from figure to figure.
Still regret selling this guy - at one stage a few years back I had a plan to assemble a crew of pirates using Thundertron and some of the weirder Prime figures like Dead End, Wildrider, and Beast Hunters Ratchet and Bulkhead. Might revisit that at some point.
Allicons sold out
Should have an Ironworks and Rattrap arriving from ID Toys tomorrow, and I ordered a cheap Airwave and regular priced Fasttrack from Robot Recruits last night. Why no, I haven't been inspired to build some hellish Doom-like creature combining these guys with Kingdom Paleotrex. Of course not.
Might also be nabbing a spare Brunt from @Art Vandelay when I next see him too.
If you still need one, @Xaran Alamas has one for sale
Oooh! PM incoming, @Xaran Alamas
I know we've not even had any reveals yet but when does everyone think Wave 2 of SS 86 will go up for preorder? Just trying to make sure I'll have enough saved for when they do
Also, anyone want an Earthrise Quintesson for £20 plus postage? Really not a fan of that guy
Probably next month, the last studio toys announced were bay bots so I guess the wave after that will be 86 again and they'll be announced at whatever is taking toy fairs place.
I only needed the flame effects from this set, anybody want it for £6 delivered? Could post today.
The Earth Countach saga continues without a real lambo in sight.
Let's hope they just didn't push the sword all the way in.
