    Yeah, that's it.

    I'd also add Pat Tallman to the core group as she was there In The Beginning and she was there in season 5 and has been heavily involved with the fandom ever since, even if she wasn't in that many episodes comparatively.

    Collectively, they are The Babylon Five!

    Wish I knew how many Netflix figures are left, decided they're getting their own shelf and it could be a small one and installed if I knew ahead of time :)

    Cover the neck ball in Vaseline. Use hot glue gun to squirt glue into the headhole. Put head on body and keep rotating until glue goes solid. Clean up \ snap off the dried brittle glue blobs that have squelched out.

    There's 4 Deluxes, Two Battlefield Voyager packs and a Spoiler box.

    Might not be, allegedly stuff that was headed Netflix way went elsewhere and vice versa like Bee and Soundwave. So far it doesn't seem they're doing Earthrise as a title at least going by what we've seen.

    Plus in my case I won't be collecting the beasties. You've reminded me about Magnus and alt mode Hotlink on a flight stand though, means the shelf will need a little more height!

    Way to make us hang on waiting for your next post! :lol 

    Damn. The B5 cast seems to be cursed:mad  RIP Mira, you will be missed :( 
    Funnily enough the thought that came to mind when I first read that was the star stuff quote and I see her official Twitter has a quote from her which itself references that line.

    Nnng you enabling bastard! I've been pondering trying to get Hardhead and now I see it also has Mindwipe who always looked badasss as well as Chromedome and Brainstorm who tug on my MTMTE/LL fandom! :p

    Well, there's the four Deluxe listings (and leaks) as well as the listings for Battlefield Primal and Seeker. There's also two leakers going on about that spoiler Megatron, so it seems rather set in stone.

    Ebay:
    The £135 rule has always applied. The now out of date page explains that Tax and customs for goods sent from abroad. You paid 2.5% on up to £630, then the rate determined by the commodity code.

    The new rules are at VAT and overseas goods sold directly to customers in the UK and for your scenario the answer is:
    Online
    Goods: £100
    Shipping: £30 (say)
    Import VAT: £26 (on £130)
    Total BBTS bill: £156

    Import
    VAT collected by BBTS: £0 to pay
    Customs Duty for goods under £135: £0 to pay
    Total: £0

    Remember: the 'seller accounts for the VAT' thing only applies to goods valued at £135 or less.

    If you bought £200 of stuff, you'd pay your price plus shipping, and be subject to normal customs charges. So the customs of 2.5% as it's under 630 pounds, plus VAT on the combined amount of goods, shipping and customs duty.

    I fell down a bit of a Pat Tallman Rabbit Hole after watching her interview on The 7th Rule, and, my GAWD, she's so much more massive a career on the sly an Unseen Legend, a Hollywood Iceberg with not only the ton of work she did between Bab5 AND the Trek Franchises from TNG on thru to the Movies but also she was Geena Davis' Double for Long Kiss Goodnight as well as Stunt Laura Dern for JP!?!

    Great pic, and happy belated birthday!

    ...
    Thanks to human deal hunting algorithm @Siege Fan for this dude:

    75BE51BD-DFA7-4B4E-A7E7-33B4AAC8875C.jpeg

    Despite him being a favourite character (dream project: gentle comedy with him and hound taking a road trip across the states. Lots of peaceful shots of them traversing pine forests and camping out) I didn’t get him as I have a ‘rule’ of ‘ankle tilt alone is not enough’ foot articulation wise. But... I really like him and he poses well. Does this mean I have to catch up on a load of other figures?!

    Any links, would let me plan ahead a little.

    I'm thinking those plugs would look well as water for Inferno or drill blasts or... Oh yeah, his alt mode is an IDW comics reference!

    I'm absolutely amazed you guys got those so quickly! :eek: 

    Re. Deal hunting. I always run 'WFC' or whatever and just see what's changed if anything! Started with Smyths FFS but a useful habit it turned out.

    Managed to prise the two halves of Cyconus' head apart without breaking the pegs. Fiddly and tense stuff :eek: 

    Megatron once did something similar but with less finesse.

    Yeah, that was profoundly fitting. She definitely had some of the best lines of that show.

    A cheap 'n' cheerful random eBay purchase turned up today, Beast Hunters Predaking! He's missing a missile launcher and I just discovered some minor damage, but he was only seven quid-ish, so I can't complain. I do love a dragon.

    In other news, Power Baser has been dispatched! He's got two weeks to make it here from China to be in time for my birthday. Will he make it? Taking bets now!

    I will always think it bullshit that we have to be taxed for the postage as well since it is a service as opposed to the goods being imported.

    Anyway, happy belated Birthday @Brooticus
