    The vicious plastic crack addiction continues as always, DM'ed you your tracking. You know how her majesty mail service works for signed next day.

    Sent, followed by untrackable until signed on arrival if the geezer or gal knows how to deliver a parcel :lol 

    Till all are one
    Keep the nostalgic cycles coming.

    Regards
    Brad

    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.

    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

    Brian Blessed is making an appearance at this year's Bloodstock festival.

    The loudest voice on the planet at a festival with lots of very loud bands.

    Awesomeness will surely ensue.

    Bloodstock is also in Derbyshire so I should hear him easily! :D

    Yup, I'll begrudgingly admit that's a good trailer, but I still hold little hope for the series.

    The Napalm seal of approval is all I need. What witchcraft did you employ to obtain such a thing?

    And dig a protective bunker 'cos if Blessed gets on stage with Judas Priest for a rendition of any of their hits it'd be like a real life Black Bolt! :D

    Cheese and crackers if its something like a jacobs cream cracker. Cheese and biscuit if its something like a biscuit. Rather partial to a chunk of wedneslydale on a cream cracker with a squirt of ketchup. Mmmmmmm.....

    Kingdom trailer works as a trailer. But alas, i still don't have any excitement for it. Wonder if the netflix nemesis will get a reissue sometime? There was meant to be one in may, but did that happen? I didn't hear anything about it.

    I got smashed and imported it!

    Vehicle mode and he does protrude too far out at the front, but I don't care cos he's a mobile home with flames painted on it and big fuck off exhaust pipe things. It's stupid. Like something a kid who turns into a sleek sports car with flame decals on the hood might think he wants to be when he grows up.

    Therefore, this is essential. Careful what you wish for, boy.

    As you can see, Rodimus runs on the blackened hearts of Optimus Prime fanboys.

    Smaller Deluxes will indeed fit inside entirely if you take out the cannon emplacement.

    Actually quite fond of the Hot Rod on steds car form. He's hanging onto his youth there.

    1625508277288.jpg

    Still, one bath in blue light and he's instantly too old for this shit! Even though he's still only a young man. That Matrix is overrated. Growing up is overrated.

    Ah, but what's in the caravan? A big old blast of who gives a fuck, that's what. I love this toy.

    Ah DPD, what a bunch of (insert choice of expletive here) :mad: 
    First they wake me up at 06:30 with a text that my package will be delivered around midday. I'm sure for some that's a perfectly acceptable time for a message to come through, but I am anything but a morning person...
    Then, despite my nominated safe place being inside the porch, I come home this evening to find the parcel sat on my front step, right next to the street in full view of everyone. In my neighbourhood it's a miracle it was still there!

    Anyway, theft avoided, I now finally have a Soundblaster to add to the collection :) 

    20210705_180751.jpg

    I like having him in the Siege mold, while my Soundwave is the Netflix version, so there is some distinction and Soundblaster isn't just a straight repaint.

    I also went on a hunt for some of the figures that have been spotted in Game. Unfortunately my local store didn't have any Transformers at all, but I did find 3 of the Micromaster packs in TK Maxx. I never bothered with these originally as it bugged me they didn't do full teams, but I thought at the reduced price they were worth picking up as complements to the Modulators if nothing else. I got the Air Strike patrol who can hang out with Airwave, Rescue Patrol who'll man Hothouse, and the Off Road patrol who can keep Ironworks company.
    Of course now I'm going to need the Sports or Race Track Patrols to park up at the Greasepit :p

    Of course what would look better than both those options, is both sets side by side........
