    Snow fell heavy here overnight. Had some craic earlier with my devil child.

    We decided to use frozen strawberries and raspberries rather than the traditional coal and carrot, as I thought it would leave something for the birds after the thaw.

    What I didn't account for is my darling little sociopath then gouging out the snowmans eyes and ripping off half his smile.

    So the thawing Berry juice is making him look like he's bleeding out the eyes. I reiterate my comment from a few weeks ago. Snowmen are metal as fuck.

    WE are the last Autobot, defender of Earth. And you... you are HISTORY

    Haha, blimey. Yeah I should have researched him back in 2009. It was definitely a mistake to sell him regardless of cost and very pleased I got it back from you for the same cost. Proper gentleman.

    Holy crap, that list is like my personal wishlist! Everything bar the Velocitron set and the clones. Shame Toy-Fu wiped me out yesterday.

    Guess which one of these was an absolute nightmare to transform?
    Tolerance issues all over the place. I prefer the DX9 version.
    Anyone had any issues with the metallic version, just wondering if the original has similar issues, as I may buy that one as I don’t fancy transforming my one again.

    Can I call upon the collective mind of the legends fans?
    The chances of me finding a Hulkie seem remote so is the MFT version (correct me if I am wrong) any good? Or does anyone want to sell me their Hulkie?

    Really enjoying Transformers at the moment, *almost* as much as when you’re reading MTMTE and you realise you need a Lost Light shelf.

    I’m doubling up.....

    The top Megs was the harder one.

    It might be easier getting hold of a downsized KO CW Devy. I’ve always thought using legend size figures with CW Combiners (11’ inches tall gestalts) would work better than what CW combiners were suppose to go with.

    A cheaper option to tide you over whilst sourcing a proper legends scale Devy.

    Heh. I know how you feel. In my case I seldom throw away boxes as I think I might need the boxes for a delivery or storage of figures at some point.* Result, a whole load of boxes taking up space in my bedroom.

    I did recycle some recently but that was after a long time. I think I will do it again soon as there is still very little walking space in my room.

    * To be fair I do use some for storage of figures in their original boxes. I don't have the space to display them all. Might need to put up some shelves too, at some point. There are still lots empty though.

    I've actually been buying less, but that's mostly a result of moving and realising just how much stuff I've got I think...

    I think many of you lot are the right age and geekiness to appreciate my mutant snow goon (created from the nice snowman my kids had done earlier...)

    One year of owning this guy and he is still, in my opinion, the absolute pinnacle of third party Transformers. I don't think even Planet X' s own IDW Grimlock will top it.

    I’m not a fan of CW Devi to be honest but I am a fan of Hulkie as I had him previously but sold him...

    I think I've PMd you (not done it on here before)... If it's not gone through right, and they've not been snapped up, I'm interested in the LG-35 Super Ginrai and LG-42 Godbomber and the set of the 6 Takara Legends female Transformers, and probably the Titans Return box sets.

    I prefer Grav Builder to CW Devy so I hear what you are saying with regards to Hulkie.

    I only suggested it as a temp solution.

    @Dobbie,
    I'd wait for either Iron Factory or Magic Square to make Devastator (or get both).

    I never went for Hulkie because it didn't look very impressive, I don't know for sure but I have a feeling Iron Factory will do 2 Devastators in one and do a traditional G1 configuration plus the required bits for IDW's Prowl version.

    Magic Square showed a Devastator silhouette ages ago but they are a bit like Fans Toys in how much they've shown but not actually released.

    No snow when I went out earlier today, now there's quite a bit. Hoping it doesn't linger too long.
