    Damn you.


    She is a rather fabulous feather friend. Certainly my favourite Maximal so far too.

    I have @VehiconVindication interested in the Skywarp from mine, however if she decides not to take him I’ll keep you in mind? No funny business on pricing either £20 posted.

    Yeah that's completely fine, if she drops out, I'm more than happy to pay that mate.

    Maverick just arrived from HOF. In a box. So either I was lucky, or they're learning that people might not want stuff just tossed in a plastic bag.
    Not opened it yet, but it does look pretty nice. Well, pretty nice for £25. The plastic is the real let down being that odd waxy/soapy slightly-translucent 90s pc greige colour. But at this price I'll grudgingly accept it!

    Think he’s been a bit busy with the podcast that he’s doing a superb job on with @Maz and @Sixo ….

    Recommend you hit up whichever streaming service you’ve got and give it a listen. People do have lives, and jobs outside of transformers and a hobby shouldn’t take precedent, maybe a little patience is required there.

    @bcm77 what’s your thoughts on the last 48hrs in WWE?

    Why have Charlotte win the belt for 24 hours? Let Ripley retain and get some good rub, then have the Nikki cash in after a hard fought retention the next night on Raw - would be so much more for both women, Charlotte doesn’t need the belt, nor the angle. Just stupid for me.

    And Goldberg?!? Enough said. Sting gets hammered for his age, but ain’t no doubt he can still work a better match than Goldberg no matter the years.

    My love for Quake has been re-ignited recently.

    Speaking of HOF, we should be hearing about Sky Lynx any day now? IIRC, the pre-order was due 18th-21st of July?

    Fingers crossed, anyway. I ordered a leader, Maverick and Sky Lynx and the whole order status changed to 'ready to ship' from when the leader went out on the 14th. So for me, at least, I won't know when Sky Lynx is headed out until hermes collect it

    :lol YES!
    I still find Cosmos hilarious... he really didn't get the memo on being inconspicuous!

    Big lad!

    I quite like it because it takes him from being "Oh can he not talk? Does he have an injury like Bumblebee?" to it being that he CAN talk, he just chooses not to 99% of the time.

    Of course, when I've imagined an SG version of Transformers Prime he's a chatterbox who won't. shut. up. :lol 
    Also obsessed with YouTube and playing cat videos on his face.

    She's my favourite Kingdom Maximal too. Granted the only other one I have is Rattrap but I stand my ground on this :lol

    Had a quick play with it, and... It could be a really nice transformer. The transformation is clever, bit mode looks pretty good and the alt mode is lovely and not too much in the way of 'obvious bot hanging under wings' syndrome.
    Let downs are obviously the plastic, which on closer inspection is not entirely consistent colour-wise as well as being kind of translucent, and whilst the paint job looks great on the jet (and would be better on better plastic) you only really see it on the chest in bot mode.
    So. Id be pretty miffed at full price, but at £25 it's pretty OK. Fingers crossed we see the mould reused.
    On which note, it's back in stock on the HOF site Transformers | Transformers Prj Crs Jn99 | Action Figures | House of Fraser

    Ooooooh! Spoilerific clip from He-Man: Revelations in this Hamill interview (Kicks off at 4.02, if the embed fudges the timestamp start)...
    Judging by the references there (with what I've picked up from the odd Spector Creative vid) the show really is cutting deep right into the Lore of the show bible and toyline! Man, if half that effort went into Netflix WFC, eh?

    Protoman's recent video is about a leaks list he was sent weeks ago that he's now taking seriously after the JP reveal and other stuff. You'll likely already have heard of it all by now but I suppose it's anecdotal corroboration if he's happy to put it out:

    2022

    Blaster and Eject in Kingdom

    86 Sludge, Swoop later, (Hasbro?) don't know what line Snarl is going in

    Terrorsaur (Airrazor mold) is 'Golden Disc Collection'

    Orange Tigatron with mutant head

    Sweep

    Junkion

    Legacy is the first chapter of a 2022 trilogy

    Commander Motormaster

    Deluxe Bombshell, Kickback, Shrapnel, possibly 86 line

    Perceptor 86 deluxe

    King Starscream 86

    Tarantulas deluxe

    Skids deluxe

    4 Prime characters - Prime, Arcee, Knockout, and Bulkhead is possibly a retool of Prime

    After Fangry it's Nightbeat, Hosehead, and Sirens, likely leading to the Autobot Headmaster Jrs

    More Beast Wars and Prime in general

    Straxus alongside a Galvy repack

    Leader Blitzwing

    No Micromaster return

    Pretenders are a possibility

    2022 titan, The Nemesis suggested

    2023 Unicron Trilogy mentioned, Supreme Unicron hinted at

    As if my wallet didn't hate me enough already the following Hot Toys figures have just been revealed during Sideshow's online event,

    Cobb Vanth ( My most wanted figure from The Mandalorian and he looks great although they're only showing the Boba Fett helmet at this point. Needs an unmasked head which I'm sure it'll have when HT do the proper reveal. )

    More Grogus including one with his eyes closed and the big ball thing he sat on whilst he reached out through the Force in the attempt to find some Jediwhich lead to THAT ending.

    In addition they're doing the following which're less essential,

    Koska Reeves ( Won't entirely rule her out as a companion on the shelf for Bo-Katan. )
    Ax Woves ( Meh. )
    Super Battle Droid ( Not arsed but I can see why they're doing it as they're also doing the Death Watch Mandalorian from the flashback scene. )

    With Fennec Shand already confirmed via the reveal of the Boba Fett with throne that leaves the following as the major gaps from The Mandalorian,

    Cara Dune ( Obviously subject to Gina's rehiring but I bet they have a prototype ready to go if that happens. )
    Greef Karga ( HT made Apollo years ago in their Rocky line so I don't see any issues with securing the likeness rights. )
    Offworld Jawas ( They already did an OT one so it's just a matter of changing the eye colour and a few costume details plus making different versions of The Egg.)

    @Seeaich,
    [​IMG]
    Where do I watch Rick & Morty?

    @Brum Bot,
    To be honest I haven't heard anything other than they were bringing Goldberg back to which I'd be asking "Why?".

    Aside from the obvious that they can't let go of the Monday Night Wars and will keep bringing people back long past the point of any use.

    It's not like Goldberg or Sting need the money and given the risk of Goldberg seriously injuring someone which almost happened with 'Taker in Saudi Arabia or one of the AEW botch machines doing likewise to Sting the whole thing seems like a massive risk with not enough upside to make it worthwhile.

    Mine is still sitting in 'order received' purgatory, despite being ordered the day they popped up on HOF. I wouldn't be surprised if they cancel it tbh and sell it at a mark up.

    Was supposed to be arriving in stock 17/19 July.

    Knockout? I thought I'd be pleased at the prospect of a half-decent Bulkhead, but a faux-parts Knockout with a decent body shape is actually kinda exciting.
