    He only uses the Warpaint after the break up with Brie Larson though as it makes him seem more emotional.

    I hear they used the itchiest wool to drive murderous intent.

    What a cover. What an issue.

    Bring back the Groke? I know that's no joke! So just for you, Doucoo! Here's what you hoped! :cool:

    ObTF: paid the Thrust tax. Which sounds dodgy enough. Now watch the same thing happen next time we get an updated combiner team... :rolleyes:

    Oh well. He is rather snazzy. :D 
    And the chances of IDT/K'pau's websites not being crushed down to neutron-star levels of impaction if they get any UK stock in seemed somewhat remote, so....:( 

    PS - Of all depictions of Herself, this one frightened me the most.

    A listing for another X-Men Marvel Legends wave for this September has appeared in store computers. No word on content but I'm hoping at least part of it is more AOA characters 'cos I want Sabertooth to go with Wild Child.

    The retro F4 wave is 6 figures and no BAF so I'm predicting the F4 plus Mole Man and a regular Skrull.

    Also looks like we might be getting a Deluxe Maestro.

    Have you watched Better Call Saul yet? Great prequel, first couple of seasons I found pretty slow but picks up after that with some very good back story to Breaking Bad.

    Anyone need me to hold onto a Shattered Glass preorder of Prime/Ratchet? Didn't realise I still had it but don't need it now. It's out of stock at our usual haunts.

    In slightly irksome news, clear plastic is obviously the best choice for a tiny nubbin on a stiff swivel piece. (Which I swivelled the right direction both times of transforming from car to bot, too.)

    Plus whatever does for Legends BA’s elbow joints done did for mine too. Just as well we bought her new toy eh?

    Can put Gigawatt’s chestclock back in for bot mode and it looks okay and stays put more-or-less; BA is all Private Ryan’d though. Who needs expensive toys to last though, that’s just silly.

    Edit: I may have been playing too much Doom (2016), I just imagined Moominpappa circlestrafing the Groke...

    CR code and a voltage? I reckon that is a battery. Does Megs have a light-up fusion cannon or something?

    Haven't seen it yet but its moved very high up the priority list because I need more, although without Walter I don't know if it will be able to hit those heights. What a character arc. There's so much I want to say about it.

    It's so bingeable. Even though i saw it all when it was released, watching it again was just as addictive. I haven't binge watched a show as hard since my first watch through.

    Todd is a cold bastard. Although I didn't find s5's villains as captivating as those in previous seasons .. they seemed a bit more.. one dimensional. I guess they needed to be for
    Walt to redeem himself in the end.


    Don't know if you've seen El Camino but the actor who plays Todd seems to have spent a bit too much time at Los Pollos Hermanos.

    I've read that Vince Gilligan didn't know whether there would be a season 5 and shot season 4 as a possible ending if they didn't get renewed. Part of me wishes that was the ending because it's a lot happier a resolution than the emotional roller coaster antihero tragic bittersweet redemption that is season 5. For me, S5 has some of the most powerful moments but also feels a little tacked on, almost like a separate sequel show. I don't know if I've worded that right.

    Like with game of thrones, I wished the quality of writing in the final 3 seasons was better because all you really want is for the good guys to finally get a some victories, but because the writing is so bad it doesn't feel like the same universe, it doesn't feel earned or legitimate.

    With BB, for me it's almost the opposite. I sense a difference in S5 but the writing and continuity are good enough that it is canon and is legitimate, despite the fact that i don't want it to be because it's a happy ending for S4 that gets absolutely tragic in S5

    The show as a whole kinda reminds me of Joaquin Phoenix's Joker in that they're both losers in life, but you root for them in some way despite their horrific actions because those actions represent these losers taking control of their lives and not being losers, which is a kind of power fantasy which a lot of people have (although not necessarily in such a bloody and murderous fashion). Idk I just really love this show.

    It's the kinda show you wanna gush about and recommend to everyone , but I think when something is so hyped then people will search for flaws in it, and you can find flaws in anything if you look hard enough.. nothing is perfect and breaking bad is no different.. but if you can watch it without looking for flaws and buy into Walt's journey then it's incredible. No show has ever made me feel this way.
