    Check out my completed Animated Scrapper. Fully transforming, all 3D printed. Probably my favourite project to date

    "
    Large Transfomers Toy Bundle for sale. I would rather sell this alongside my other box as well and potential do a packaged deal using Paypal or cash/bank transfer(if collecting) outside of this website due to the high ebay fees so please do message me if you are interested in this item. Of course i am happy with selling it through eBay and paying the fees i would just rather not. There are loads of different Transfomers in this custom bundle and what you see in the pictures is what you will get as well as instructions for some of the toys."

    That looks incredible mate. I’m really new to 3D printing, roughly how long did it take to go from concept to finished product? Also wondering about the costs. I’d love to do this myself and make an anime accurate Armada Megatron someday.

    You made great choices with that wants list. Can't speak for taco tank but the others are brilliant figures. And lol at the primal selfie. Suitably out of focus. Hahaha.

    Wow, never seen the blue bluestreak binal. That paint job is beautiful. And thanks. They're customs but i hated the onsie look the official ones have, so had to give them some proper seeker distinction to their style.


    All these years, i thought robocop 3 was the worst of the trilogy. Not bad, just not as good. Having just watched robocop2, I'm switching them. Sure, 3 is a lighter, more kid friendly tone, but it has fun with itself and has an actual story. 2 doesn't really have a story. Nothing will ever beat 1 though.

    On pulse it’s saying the kingdom/Netflix spoiler pack is up for preorder for dispatch on the 25th... so two days ago? But I guess it means it’s in soonish. Kind of tempted because of purple Dino and the Netflix type paintwork is pretty nice on megs. Would be right in on it if I didn’t already have Netflix megs... (incidentally, the orange...cat-sword that comes with him goes very well with G2 megs and his orange highlights)

    Oooh just beaten by a nose. Hey if it helps you feel better. I'm the tit that imported his bluestreaks at £40 odd from the US.
    Here's hoping they get a load of dirge/ramjet boxes in as that's the only rare set left I haven't already paid over the odds for overseas.

    Huh...


    And I've just lost an omega supreme to a combination of the post office and some tit insisting on using some sketchy reshipper rather then asking me to post it to Ireland.

    Haha

    Well good thing I already have the crippling depression. Else I might feel quite bad now.

    Thank you, you're too kind. They're all completely customs, made from two starscreams and a thundercracker. No way i was going to pay 130+ For three identical figures with a singular paint scheme and battle damage that is identical so looks bad when all three are posed together. So i grabbed some screamers in a sale and said GrossDentalIlladopsis-small.gif

    Seriously, you've done an amazing job there.

    I doubt that april 12 release date but nice to see things moving.


    NIGHT WOTCH!!

    Anyone on the fence about Core Optimus, I've reduced mine to £8.99 til April 1st. Also got some other bits reduced including SS86 Blurr.

    It's infuriating beyond words. Local councils destroyed city retail with out-of-town shopping centres and huge rates cuts for the chain stores, then HMRC let Amazon off for tax for years. Now bricks and mortar is nearly dead, instead of restructuring VAT to be a sliding scale or taxing Amazon who made a killing from the pandemic, they penalise all online sellers.

    That's not even mentioning the monopoly that Amazon, Google and Facebook have created by working together.

    Having experienced both,

    Original Game Boy gave me constant headaches and to this day is the only hand held console I've owned. Me & tiny screens do not get on.

    A ferret entering the trousers at foot level (the more common route) is best stopped before it gets too far. At the very least they'll bite your calves which stings a bit but is a hell of lot more preferable to letting them get any higher.

    Letting a ferret enter the trousers from the other end as depicted in the Game Boy ad is utter insanity unless you want to risk sounding like Joe Pasquale on a permanent basis.

    So it's a choice of what's worse, headaches or teeth marks :D 

    @waffel,
    AMAZING Scrapper!
