    Wow those wilko £4.50 "shelf organisers" risers really work wonders.... I'm tempted to get more and possibly spray silver at some point

    I can attest to this as someone that didn't watch Scarlet Witch or Falcon and Winter Soldier until both series had been fully released. No spoilers seen here unless you look behind the spoiler shields. I'm doing the same thing with Loki.

    Impossible distances and surreal trajectories is good! The window was a possible and believable trajectory and I'd much rather that it didnt fly out of it. Anyway my entire PC needs to be switched off and moved for this operation. Ill catch yall on the flipside.

    @Ottertron how deep did you get with Hexa Gear? Tempted for a few, just wondered how you found them overall?

    Anyone else tried them?

    AAAH YOU MOTHERFUCKERS HE WAS IN THE BIN LOOKING KINDA GLUM

    image9.jpeg

    Here are the two bots with their heads swapped.

    image6.jpeg image7.jpeg

    I like Earthrise's chest more than Siege's but that doesnt seem swappable since they have changed the proportions of all the hinges and ports. In fact, looking at them, I think I prefer all of Earthrise's bot mode and all of Siege's truck mode. This will have to do for now but I might end up head swapping them back and selling Siege. We'll see. Gonna have a go at scrubbing off Siege's battle damage and see if that makes me any difference.

    The heads are pretty similar in size and dont play any important role in transformation so i cant imagine there would be any problems with doing this re: truck mode.

    I'm just so glad. I'm gonna smoke a cigarette.

    @rikkomba this was a glorious experience

    Haha. That was my intention, I'm glad someone picked up on it.

    Hah, these are pretty great. I wonder if Peter Grainger (16) had some secret knowledge of what was brewing in Japan. What year was this I wonder?

    I've always gotten a chuckle out of the implication that Magnus "died" believing the rest of his team wouldn't survive the next 5 minutes without him! :lol

    Tesla v2 is on Omegalock for MP folks.

    £20 deposit, no fuss. Been checking their Facebook page too, but no news. Just stumbled on it. Might be up there now...

    I've just finished boxing these back up again, but I think they were printed in 1985, so maybe he did...? And his version of Soundblaster is one of the better designs, almost... too good?

    Also, just noticed something is odd with Turbo Thunder's crotch. Is that just an unfortunately placed gun holster?

    Flipping heck not even 50 mins and it's out. Would not get either way it but still annoyed.

    I guess I'm parting with my 4 FT Stunticons soon :D

    I checked FB after I'd posted and it'd been on there for 45 mins, so it's lasted not much longer than an hour.

    From what I've seen, either wait for TFS-Express China to see if/when they put them up, or check Bombusbee. I've heard nothing bad about them, only good, and they seem to be well versed in stocking the current FT stuff on repeat (they've sold out once and restocked POs). The Insecticons orders were blitzed and everyone got their orders

    I tried a few and its a mixed bag. The machines are usually pretty good. The bulkarm is definately the most solid of what I tried. The steelrain needs a bit of extra work to get to stand properly. The Governors is a bit less impressive, sometimes fiddly and you have to be aware that some of them needs paint to look good. Everyone that has a face you have to paint it yourself.

    I really wish these snap together model kits would include at least one picture of the unpainted models, or even just of the sprues, so you know what you're in for before you buy.
