    Good shout with those two! I think they're both headless as I was considering both for custom projects which never went anywhere in the end... Maybe this will give me some incentive!

    Just watched Emgo's MP Arcee, she is nice but I thought £90 for a MP Carbot (Sunny) was a stupid price, there is no way I am paying £130 and I pity anyone who actually spends that on this when you know the KOs are just round the corner

    If Airraazor and Blackarachnia are in there, then there's not really any reason to be grumbling about new females in the cast. Only if the new ladies had taken the originals away would I even remotely understand. After all, this is a reboot of BW.

    I've just been sat here whooshing Gigawatt around for the last ten minues with the bttf theme playing. I watched those movies so many times as a kid, I even got the boxset signed by Christopher Lloyd when he wwas at a star trek convention (the guy never even looked at me until I tried to shake his hand even though he spent five minutes chatting to the group of girls in front of me in the queue but whatever. Not gonna let it take away from my love of the films). So if there was gonna be a crossover tf I did get, this would be it, outside an Enterprise. Mine has a bit of a mashed box, and there's some minor paint scuff on the bonnet piece, but dammit I love this thing. I can hear the sound effects in my head like the engine revving and changing gears with that hiss when I move it around, or open the doors, or the lights in the tail exhaust vents. This is totally me in a happy place today. :mail

    Drop into the thread instead. I doubt anyone paid 130, you could get it for just over 100 prior to release and Omegalock still have it for 115 after release.

    In hand, she freaking amazing. Her balance is out of this world. I was out on her originally, then decided the only real issue was the upper torso not being toon accurate and that 3P would sort that eventually.

    Her face sculpt is perfectly fine in hand, although the stock face is still a little bug eyed...

    For MP scale collecting, her price is pretty cheap (Hound was 130), and if you want as accurate as possible, she's the better bet I think. I debated between the two main 3P alternatives, and just couldn't find myself being content with them.

    I'm really happy with MP51, and think she looks great. My TFTM collection only started late summer, but somehow I'll have all the baddies, and most of the goodies, by July. Need to get back to my S2 shelf!

    If you get a chance to pick up the new Lego modular police station I definitely recommend it, been collecting the modular buildings since day one and the latest one is one of my favourites (along with the Detective’s Office, must be a theme there somewhere!)

    Actually brought a few down to the kitchen last night from different displays, you forget how good they look when you start putting a couple together!

    Also, how AMAZING are some of the new Studio Series 86 figures. I can’t put Hot Rod down, think this is the first time I’ve been able to put him in this pose from the Movie!

    Still figuring out how to transform the new Studio Series 86 Jazz though ;)

    Can't believe we are about to have two versions of Magnus since this guy was the Only Magnus in Town. He's just a waist swivel from perfect. IMG_20210118_163332.jpg

    And now I'm giving him away to try and make a bit of room. Still haven't decided if I'm going to get the Kingdom version.

    I didn't even begin with the modulars, I knew it wouldn't end well for me! Amazing sets though!

    same here. not sure if ill buy the Kingdom version or just buy the Siege one when someone else on the boards decides to part with theirs.

    really depends on how good the new one looks once it gets in the hands of other users and i hear their thoughts on it.

    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.
