    Brilliant :lol 

    As I know you’ve been based around Warwickshire, I can hazard a guess that the team were probably from my neck of the woods….?

    Love the look of the Dinobots. Glad I got out of the FT game a few years ago, these look more than sufficient.

    The Prestige: Wolverine, Batman, Batman, Alfred, Black Widow and (the excellent) Rebecca Hall take turns reading bits of diary before tracking down The Goblin King to get a machine that makes cats and hats.

    And it's brilliant.

    I, genuinely, don't understand why capes, cloaks, and cowls are not considered acceptable items of clothing in modern times.

    I own a cape but Mrs. O will disown me if I wear it outdoors.

    I was shocked to find out via Dominic Noble on Youtube that the film adaptation turned out to be VASTLY different to the book it is based on. The Nolans' take is very much in line with the way Inception riffed on the art of filmmaking, I'd actually be quite interested in a more faithful adaptation but it'd be more a horror film and (unless done under the auspices of other vastly influential creators) likely have to be done on a comparative shoestring budget as such.

    Ooh and according to my bank, the money has left properly now rather than sitting in pending. Tbh I wasn't too hopeful that anything materialise, but this is looking good!

    Anyone wanna buy Marvel 'Bee, toy Blackarachnia and Universe Primal off of me if I'm able to get my hands on the Worlds Collide set (I'm only interested in Fangry)?

    Built most of my bookcase today before stopping due to it being too hot & sticky as all the fans in my room are pointed at Ferret HQ and there wasn't any breeze blowing through my window.

    As suspected I'm going to have to do something about lighting as the bookcase is right over one side of the room where the light doesn't properly get but the main thing is that I have 6 new shelves.

    @Ottertron,
    I saw that ToysEra Ronan the other day and thought it looked pretty good, be intrested to see some pics if you get one!

    @SJW,
    I used to own that Werewolf figure. It was during the time I actually liked Nu-Who as I hadn't yet given the original series a go.

    Boy would that change, one "Genesis of the Daleks" DVD later and I was charging down the road to ignoring any Who made after 1989 faster than a ferret down a rabbit hole :D

    Picked up a Netflix optimus yesterday, gotta say, he's got that presence that ER is lacking. The finer details are great too, especially the eyes! Worth £30 in my eyes.

    Also preorded the premium finish siege megatron, just something about it looks so sweet. Very nearly finished collecting (until they release menasor)

    Good LORD! I had a feeling I'd end up needing the Worlds Collide set but I was expecting due to SG Wheeljack/Slicer. Anyway 3 out of 4 ain't bad, I may not regret passing on Netflix 'Bee after all! But "Marvel 'Bee", what could that be? Toy bonce? Or is it a Marvel Deco Goldbug being mistaken for a 'Bee by our not-dead-after-all Leaker?

    I see there are no buyers yet.
    OK, to sweeten the deal I'll accept a trade.
    I'll trade my Earthrise Thrust with a Kingdom Ultra Magnus for 500.

    If it is Marvel comics accurate he should have a yellow face as well as head and also yellow shins, plus the black parts of his arms and legs should be dark blue.

    What what what?

    ??????

    Got a link to that post? I had a look in last few pages but can't find it. Comic bee from netflix? I guess fully yellow facee, black legs and arms (or dark blue?). Toy blackarachnia? Seems obvious what that will be. Universe primal? A primal repaint obvs, but in what style? Fangry? BLOODY FANGRY??? I was going to make my own. He must be a tr compatible bot or no interest. And I'm guessing the only new tooling of the set.


    Damn, I'm in for all those. Was not expecting that at all.
