    Thanks everyone for elaborating. I did a bit of sleuthing after my post and figured it was probably that but the listing was a tad sparse on the details. Not that it's something I had any intention of buying, just thought it was funny :D 

    And wow, that ultra mode is so OTT I love it :D 

    Oooh that looks cool! Also thanks for giving me some idea of how big he actually is. It's unlikely to happen at this point but imagine a Commander Class Magnus based on Maximus Ambus' design? Complete with shoulder turrets for legends/core class figures :D

    Ditto here with a guest appearance by @we_are_forest :D  grats on reaching the end of the first week of 2021! You're in the home stretch!

    Same here, though it's mostly melted/turned to snow now and I got up too late to go out in it :(  I took loads of photos though! :D

    I am very rarely here, happenstance I popped on to put something in the eBay section, had a quick look in here, and ofc recognised Fire Guts, and your good self!

    Had to check AA/TFN pics to check the timings, I bought him from you at my first AA back in '09 for £90, then sold him back to you in '13 for the same £90. Just had a quick look, no sold listings on eBay, cheapest listed one is over £600! Can I have him back again for the £90?!? :lol

    @4249david many thanks! Appreciate the clarity and help!


    Fasttrack got fast tracked, ordered Friday, arrived Saturday. Has anyone got multiples or seen if it is possible to do a combo spear?

    Anyone else needed to put up more shelves due to Covid/Lockdown related purchasing frenzy?

    I've managed to somehow get sucked into both Marvel Legends and GI:Joe last year, and now have some MOTU Origins on their way...

    (Worst part is my wife nabbed most of the prime spots on the new shelves!)

    There was quite a decent looking combo spear in the rortichi (sp?) pictorial review thread I think

    It’s not shelves I need, it’s a bigger recycle bin for cardboard. I’m gaining boxes and packaging faster than the bins are collected 4 parcels from Amazon yesterday, so 4 excessively large boxes and enough packing paper to fill a bin bag.

    For you in three weeks time:

    Lol, it's funny you say that, its a blizzard today! So hopefully you'll be happy.

    Hmm, thanks to you, I've just noticed a couple of posts were modded back on the 11th. Never got a notice about that. I wonder what we were talking about that prompted it?

    This new bed seems to be doing wonders for my back. Still a bit of pain but no where near what it was in the old bed, and I'm feeling a little more rested. Huzzah!

    Got this set from ZXB today (along with their upgrades for the Datsun bros... finally)!

    The spoiler definitely brings the alt mode more in-line with his OG iteration. I'll probably leave them on the arms for alt mode to minimise partsforming, but you could store then on the back of his legs if you want a cleaner look.

    The leg fillers work a treat. Simple engineering that does the job. The yellow paint is a little warmer than the plastic, but it's probably a better match than the factory painted parts!

    The rifle is nice, though it's painted grey rather than silver. The arm missiles are though and they wedge into place neatly enough. He also comes with a small black gun: will repurpose for a different character.

    All in all, pretty pleased with this upgrade!

    Hi yes for a friend let me check with him.


    @AllSpark Ferret is a great seller! That’s some list. I might be interested in Grotesque. Will try to PM you soon.

    @mark_h ooh thanks! I’ll check it out if I can find the thread.


    Might edit later with necessary quotes. Busy Sunday.
