    Firstly, good luck with the dissertation :) 
    Secondly that's a lot of black Widow Figures!

    Two questions.
    1.) Is your wife as big a fan of BW?
    2.) Is she also a red-head ;) 

    I'd be all in for a Leader Thunderwing - even a selects retool would suffice.

    Yeah anyone know what's going on?
    Seems like all the other threads I frequent have just stopped dead?

    It's one of the best series around isn't it? And yes, I agree with you on both points. Particularly Amos who has developed into a very interesting character.

    Mint Viscounts or no deal. This is Belfast, son.

    *Sends 'Valentines Day' pic of that time Sammy Wilson went to France. It's like the video tape in The Ring but far more cursed.*

    Love it! :lol

    The thing about modding is, modding talk is not a permitted area of discussion.

    Talking about politics is against the rules - sooner or later the posts get snipped.

    I'm quite pleased with myself - My VR headset hadn't been working right since I had a buggered up SSD that I had to replace - turns out when I moved Steam to a new drive I needed to enable a swap file on it and things seem to work properly again - I almost feel intelligent...

    To answer your questions...

    1.) Not particularly
    2.) No.

    BWAHAHAHA.

    Just saw a Jackie Chan film I picked up in Sainsbos for a fiver. 'Vanguard'. Directed by Stanly Tong. Sold as a action film that harks back to the 90's... It really wasn't good.

    Jackie Chan doesn't star, seems more like a vehicle for 3 younger people and Jackie Chan is lending his star power. If the stunts were real it'd probably be good, but it's all stupid CG.

    Then when we do see some real things it's shot so weirdly it looks CG. So you end up questioning everything and it all seems fake.

    Bleeeeh.

    I would be happy enough with a Thunderwing retool of TR Black Shadow. But really, I'd love to see what Hasbro had planned for POTP if he'd won the fan vote (fecking Primal).

    *shudder* you can have every mint viscount under gods good sky if you never invoke that picture again. It is responsible for falling fertility rates.

    Couldn't resist. Also apes the face my wife made when I asked her to borrow her ring for the shot, she'd clean forgotten valentines was just around the corner.

    That's a shame. I'll avoid that one. Although what age is Mr Chan now anyway? Couldn't expect him to be doing any stunts these days - he's wrecked himself that much over the years. But it is a shame to hear that CG was used.

    yeah amos is dope, his journey in s5 was very enjoyable.

    the expanse is really good both in story and visuals. a much more grounded space sci-fi.

    i thought s4 was a little weak but s5 totally surpassed my expectations.

    here's to hoping they can finish it off in a way that befits the rest of the show.

    I honestly thought you meant modding toys at first, which would mean most of your posts would be against the rules :lol

    I saw Sky Shadow and laughed, because the only reason I own one is because Kapow were selling him for £20 a couple of years ago.

    Not overly impressed with Kup and Blurr all told. I think some blue paint and a steady brush to the eyes (or no close up pics afterwards :lol ) might help the dead eyed loooong faces which is where they really fall down. Engineering is decent, though Kup feels a little flimsy.

    Jazz is fucking wicked.
