    For me its the thought of Galactus with the 3.75" Secret Wars figures... Now that's a scale I like!

    I *might* have also put in a preorder for the whole McFarlane Batman ‘66 wave…

    This picture pushed me over the edge on the order

    Man, I'm only 5'4, there is no one I know, including my wife, that isn't going to instantly assume I've bought some kind of robot sex doll...


    No NO NO!!
    You can enable me on all the transformers you want, but fuckin an entire Batcave set? I don't have that kind of willpower!

    Not exactly: for some countries, any single syllable from the English language is associated with American militarism.

    You unlucky sod. Didn't you know that Fangry is one of the worst characters ever? Every other figure in that set is a godsend compared to him. But I'll be nice and take Fangry off your hands for a fair price. :cool:

    Sonic. Screwdriver. MINICON!

    Also occurs to me, this guy could be a part of it:

    Octus (G1) - Transformers Wiki

    His altmode is a Dalek!

    Who's that military looking Optimusalike?

    That is a fine group. I think I have that group minus UM and swap out BH Prime for the APC Toys replica of FE Prime :) 

    Between my brother and I we had the purple one and the yellow one as kids! :) 

    And best wishes to @CZ Hazard , I hope things pick up for you soon!

    :lolol 

    Meanwhile, new pics of the Big Firebird gals. Not tried the combined mode yet

    So I’ve heard, I feel so privileged I’ve found the only other Fangry fan on the net :lol 

    With Siren, Hosehead & Nightbeat due next year I can’t believe we’re already at 4 of the 6 remaining Headmasters! We just need a Squeezeplay & Horribull two-pack now and we can move on to the other million toys we want then… Now, who do I bribe for Sureshot, Pointblank & the Omnibots?

    A wild Slag has cleared customs! Greatshot also arrived with Red this morning, so fears about a bite down and accept it situation were unfounded.

    I remember seeing a loose Greatshot being sold on eBay for £50. I could have gone for it, but I was moving out at the time and I can't say I'm terribly attached to a Victory character with a so-so mold. Then again, if Hasbro goes forward with his teammates like Victory Saber....

    Nice group shot, though I wish Hasbro released an official Buzzsaw to go with Soundwave. I'll one-up you with a group shot of my own. I highly recommend you get Dr. Wu's Chatter from TFSafari to join the gang. It makes for a great Squawkbox.

    that would require the public to actually remember anything about GI Joe beyond it having soldiers and being American. i really don't think anyone remembers it very distinctly to be honest.

    Not to mention Sandstorm. That Generations IDW figure really doesn't do it for me. And I thought Siren, Hosehead and Nightbeat was just BS speculation, not a credible rumour. Source?

    The Pretender stuff I believe originated as BS Speculation, the 88 headmasters were leaked by @wreckgar39 who is quite reliable.
