    I think I may have found the perfect desk bots for me! Spychangers! Small, sturdy, can be transformed in seconds and they roll so satisfyingly across the desk. Pretty much transforming Hot Wheels, which I'm sure was an element of their inception back in G2.

    Tracks is here! Gonna have a fiddle and get back tomorrow morning on how he is.

    First impressions though? 7.5/10. Let’s see how annoying those legs will be after some play. They tried to copy the MP transformation it seems but probably realised they’d spend too much of the budget getting it to work and do other stuff too. Weapons could be better but they do the trick.

    Colour choices are great, and that white flame decal is a bit of a shame but it is cartoon accurate and I can see Toyhax fixing that soon enough. Bit sketchy having the entire roof area made of clear plastic however I don’t think it’ll be that much of an issue surprisingly.

    Once again reviewers just nitpicking. He’s fine.

    I just started a new thread.....this might actually be my first.

    I thought it would be cool to have a place to discuss ideas for new transformer toys....not seen a thread for this yet...so does anyone have any crazy ideas they'd love to see?

    I'll be diplomatic and say different Oreos for different needs.

    One is a furry friend with a very laid back manner, the other is a nice snack :D 

    Mum's still not had a proper diagnosis what it exactly is but it's definitely some sort of gluten intolerance which is leading to more frustration because she has a hard enough time deciding what to eat anyway.....the price and taste also leads to gluten free intolerance :D

    Yup. No chocolate? GTFO. But now I realise they are divine when dipped in tea.

    Also, fellas, help me clear something up, while we're on the subject of biscuits.

    Do you guys say Cheese & Biscuits or Cheese and Crackers? My partner is team Crackers, and I'm team Biscuits.

    Now, correctly, she points out that they always say crackers on the packet. She's right, but I argue that once they're opened and begin mingling with pickles, cheeses and whatnot, they transcend their corporate designation and become something more... something bigger than themselves. They are become biscuit.

    Help me out, we've just bought a house and it's about to go tits up in casa brooticus.

    This was my thought!

    A cracker is a cracker (Jacobs Cream, for example). Otherwise it's a mini cheddar-type (and might be a biscuit). It's fragility that makes it a cracker.

    Of course, then you throw 'water biscuits' into the equation, and life isn't worth living anymore... they're more fragile than a cracker, wtf?

    Not a clue. Dinobot Island got theirs and they were the missassembled variety though.

    Got my HMRC refund and used part of it to pay for Planet X Cacus in full. Now we play the waiting game.

    ...

    Fuck this anyone else up for Halo on Hang 'Em High?

    More photos of muscular men in pants that all look the same...

    Wave 5 finally! Was chatting with a mate and we reckon a set of military DX taking the piss with faux Man-at-arms gear with a modified Attack Traks would be aces. And entrance ways would be cool too.

    Coming out nearly a week after MOTU Revelations isn't gonna do the Trilogy's Finale any favours, is it?

    From the bit where Airazor zaps 2 of him in succession protecting Blackarachnia, it seems that BW Scorponok is getting the drones/generics role for the Preds in this one.
    The money they've saved by leaving the core Autobots in their Cybertronian modes should be flippin' well visible on-screen, I still suspect a decent chunk is being trousered by RT.

    Hey everyone, got a few bits for sale. Need to downsize the collection by a bit, so it's mostly 3rd party stuff. Will have more bits once I sell this lot.

    Shipping included

    Never been on display, just in storage. Tiny bit of surgery had to be done on blast off's connection port as it was stuck after first combination. Fixed now, everything works fine. Original box and instructions included, complete. 20210705_163612.jpg 20210705_163605.jpg


    Tcw-ex Abominus upgrade kit - £62

    Kit only applied once to abominus then removed and put in storage. Complete
