    I'm not sure about the exact cast, but I have seen Burcham talking about how there are more characters coming. He deliberately based the look of the new characters on existing toy characters, kinda like they were retools/redecos, because he really liked the aesthetic and wanted to carry it through, but it doesn't mean the original characters don't show up. He's already confirmed the Tripredacus Council are in it.

    I’m leaning towards getting rid of Siege Magnus if I like Kingdom more. I’ll keep you updated :)

    My pug farted on me and I think there should be some sort of helpline you can call.

    In robot news I still have to make a double or triple headed Paleotrex fossil dude despite having all the parts.

    Those Lego "Town Masterpiece" sets are incredible, my only gripe being last time I went to a Lego show it did get a bit repetitive seeing them again and again. It's like some of the AFOL groups just admitted defeat and said, okay, we can't make anything as good as the official releases! Considered in isolation they are still amazing, though :) 

    My current Deskbot! (Well, him and T30 Tailgate). Such a magnificent chunk. Going to try and transform him without instructions soon, per my personal deskbot rules. Unless MMC or similar bring out an even more Roche/Milne-y version, he will never be replaced.

    Got my quintesson pit from amazon, suprisingly looks in great shape.
    The lighter color judge seems nice, and the whole dispay sure seens nice.

    Amazon also shipped me a earthrise trailbreaker that they say is with royal mail and arriving yesterday...while rm keep telling me "that tracking number isnt valid".

    Huh..that should be everything i'll be getting this month..
    Keeping tr blitzwing on my desk week and going from oh, i like him to "those parts are stcking out and i cant unsee it"

    That street looks awesome.

    I know i was a little iffy about getting primal, but he's really nice. Glad to have him. Here is my s1 bw shelf newly organised with the new femme fatale. Kingdom ba fits in perfectly, especially with the old tarantulas.

    Here is the current state of my Lost Light crew. The only figure I own that's missing from the shelf is the OSKO Trailbreaker, who is waiting for me to get some more isopropyl alcohol so I can finish stripping the horrible paint job and giving him a fresh one.

    That is very nice indeed, will you be going in on the new road plates?

    Very true, I bought one then sold it to buy the next one!

    Had a little play around with a display of sorts, it will be a unique experience displaying them so here are a couple of pictures.

    Narrowly lost an auction for a sealed Toys R Us MP-10. Which kind of feels like a relief in some ways.

    Awesome!

    This is the sort of picture that could prove to be quite expensive for me.

    If you aren't in on MP44 because of toon aesthetic, and are an MP scale collector, MP10 is still a great figure. Especially the TrU version with blue eyes.

    Sure, his arms are a touch long, and articulation isn't at current levels, but he's still a damned fine piece.

    In fact, as a non MP collector it might be a really good one off figure if the most recognisable bot.

    You could do a lot worse, is my point.

    That was my precise rationale as it happens, so you have made me feel better on that count at least.

    I’m hesitant to go down the MP rabbit hole though, which is why I was quite relieved and missing out by $2 US meant I really wasn’t in it whole heartedly.

    Any MOTU Origins collectors - Amazon currently have Skelator for £14.99 so just picked him up along with Battle Cat.

    I've also picked up a 'Little Golden Book' entitled I Am He-Man for £3.86 which will be some bedtime reading with my youngest lad.

    Many thanks to @Siege Fan for the heads up on the Origins stuff - I've been tracking Amazon for the past few days!
